It’s time to Liftoff!!

Following the completion of the the CrossFit Games, and before the start of the next Open,  CrossFit has kept our interest piqued with events such as the CrossFit Invitational and the CrossFit Team Series. They have now added another competitive event for the world to participate in. . . the Liftoff.

The 2015 CrossFit Liftoff is an online, 3 event competition consisting of different weight classes allowing athletes to compare their Olympic lifts with those of similar size around the world. And it wouldn’t be a CrossFit competition if there wasn’t a CrossFit workout involved.¬†Snatch. Clean and jerk. Workout. Two max-effort lifts and a test of GPP make up the 2015 CrossFit Liftoff.

The Liftoff will begin at 5 p.m. PT on Thursday, November 5, with the release of the CrossFit workout. Athletes will have until 5 p.m. PT on Monday, November 9, to submit their scores on the three events.

There are many ways to excel, and win prizes, in the Liftoff. Athletes will be ranked by their overall total (snatch + clean and jerk + workout reps), weightlifting total (snatch + clean and jerk), pound-for-pound score (weightlifting total / bodyweight), overall total within their weight class, snatch weight, clean and jerk weight, and workout reps.

PRIZES

Snatch the most weight, and you’ll win $3,000. Same goes for the clean and jerk.

Set a top 3 weightlifting total or pound-for-pound score, and you’ll win up to $3,000.

Build a top 5 overall total, and you’ll win up to $3,000 plus a Rogue equipment package that includes a Rogue bearing bar, full set of competition plates, metal change plates, Oso collars, and engraved weight belt.

Plus 48 men and women will receive a custom Rogue weight belt for setting a top 3 overall total in their weight class. And more…

All prizes apply equally to men and women in the Open Division.

DIVISIONS

There are three divisions, Open (all ages), Masters (40+), and Teenage (14-17), and eight weight classes:

Men – 135/150/165/180/195/210/225/226+
Women – 110/120/130/140/150/160/170/171+

For the weight classes, weights are in pounds and express the upper limit. A woman who weighs 131 lb., for example, would be in the 140-lb. weight class. Athletes will have their body weight verified and recorded prior to each event. Body weight will be recorded in whole pounds only (no decimals).

Just like in the CrossFit Games Open, athletes can perform the events at participating CrossFit affiliates in front of a judge, or video record their performances and upload them to YouTube and submit a link with their score. Please note that video footage is required in order to claim any prize.

It’s just $10 to sign up. That’s it. You’ve been hitting those Olympic lifts pretty hard lately, why not put yourself to the test. Click here to register.
