Wednesday’s WOD will be the first qualifier for the 2013 OC Throwdown. Over 1, for sale 000 athletes have paid $10 bucks to register for the chance to compete in Orange County at the biggest CrossFit competition outside the Games. If the WODs are good, I will program them into the gym’s weekly programming – likely on Saturday’s. I really like this one as a qualifier WOD – it’s easy to score, the standards are simple, requires some athleticism, but the biggest requirement is guts to keep going.
If you are interested in going to the OC Throwdown, register. This is another good opportunity to see where you stand on a leader board, much like the CrossFit Games Open or to a lesser degree, the Proanox Diamond of the Tough. If it’s anything like last year, the WODs will be challenging, and the competition is FIERCE.
The folks at the OC Throwdown put out this preview video – if you watch closely, you may recognize Nick’s name flash on the screen.
