Please note that these are the workouts that EVERYONE will be doing.  4 of them will come in the morning (the floater happening anytime before 12) and the fifth workout will happen after the afternoon break.  The Scaled Division winner will be based on those 5 workouts whereas the Rx Division will have two final workouts that will be back-to-back and will be revealed after the 5th workout is over.  Please note that I am about 99.991% sure that these are the workouts, but they may change a tiny little bit (including the time limits that were posted with your heat times.  Please keep an eye on the blog for any other information.

Judges and Volunteers:  Please be at the gym by 8:00.  I will be getting there at around 7:30 and should be done pulling my hair out by the time you get there (so don’t be late!).

Athletes:  Please check-in from 8:00 – 8:20.  Workout briefing will happen right at 8:20 with or without you or your teammates.  If you have any questions, please bring them with you.  Everything that we will do are things to which you should have been exposed plenty!  

The competition starts with or without your human body present at 9 AM SHARP!
