Now onto the last 3 movements:
OH Squat 15/20 – squat down to where the top of the knee is higher than the crease of the hip holding the barbell in the OH position with fully extended arms – 1 OHS counts as 1 point
Squat Clean for weight – perform a squat clean so clean from the floor and go into a full squat, extend fully with barbell in rack position, that’s one rep. Touch and go or drop barbell and reset is both acceptable *power clean + front squat is allowed* – 1kg moved = 1 point
Mystery Movement 5: Zombie Walk [1m:3] – put a towel or t-shirt on the floor and place your feet on it in plank position, then “walk” forward using your hands and maintaining plank position. Don’t forget to smile 😉 – 1 meter = 3 points
Let’s not beat around the bush. The 24AMRAP event is a truly unique event. There’s nothing like it anywhere on earth. And after you sign up your team(s) you can decide how you want to play this out. Here are some things that are going to happen simply because you are competing in the event:
your box/affiliate is going to be open for a really long time – the event lasts for 24 hours, take a couple hours before the event to set everything up and a few hours after to wrap it up and we’re talking about 26-30 hours. That’s a long time…
like we said, it’s unique – when you tell someone, CrossFit athlete or not, what you are about to do, they usually react surprised, awestruck or laugh at you. Or a combination of those responses will occur. That’s because it sounds (and is) pretty radical. Hardcore. Or crazy. Which one depends on the mindset of the person in question. But yeah: it’s a… thing…
it’s going to involve a lot of people – so it’s not just going to be the 6 athletes that are in the team. There will be supporters, assistants, caretakers, more supporters, people who like to see other people suffer, fans, more supporters etc. From surveys we conducted throughout the last three editions of the 24AMRAP Challenge with some of the competing teams we estimate that every team “brings” 20 people with them. Spouse, friends, fellow athletes… so yeah, it’s going to be fun. With other people, some who’ve never set foot in a CrossFit box before…
