How do I choose a division?
The following table of movement standards will help you decide whether to compete in the Rx or Scaled division (or, for individuals, Masters).
Scaled is for those who can’t do reps at Rx weight. If you can do multiple reps at Rx weights, you should register for the Rx division.
Masters division only applies in individual competition. For teams, age is irrelevant: all teams are either Rx or Scaled.
What if I want to compete but can’t do the Scaled weight?
Scaled athletes who can’t complete multiple reps can choose whatever weight they need to compete safely. Dropping below prescribed weights will remove an athlete from medal contention.
By design, the team competition is for 2 men and 2 women. However, any configuration of athletes can compete, as well as drop below prescribed weights, to compete safely. Either of these will remove that team from medal contention.
Did you pull these out of your…
Standards are based on those used in the Open and previous Test Your Metal competitions.
Wait, we’ll have to do all of this??
These standards are just a guide to help you choose the appropriate division. Not all of these movements will be used. Conversely, it’s possible that a WOD could include a movement not listed here. Again: this list is a guide only.
Can we drop weights instead of controlling them to the ground?
You will be allowed to drop the barbell only if that permission is explicitly stated during the WOD descriptions and in the athlete’s meeting on the morning of the competition. Otherwise, a dropped bar will be a “no rep.”
What about the final WODs?
In the finals, all bets are off and anything goes.
Movements like running, push-ups, burpees or rowing? Yes, you have to be able to do those.
