T-Town Throwdown Update
First off let me just say this event is shaping up to be epic, way beyond my expectations already. I just got off the phone with Anthony from Caveman Eats, a paleo food truck that wanders around the South Sound. He’s gonna set up out front for all the hungry spectators and competitors to enjoy. Think giant meat skewers and roasted sweet potatoes, simple but delicious.
As for the workouts, I’m equally giddy about programming for this awesome event. I’ve been racking my brain for months, trying to decide on the ultimate test for supremacy of awesomeness (see T-Town Throwdown). I’ve got three epic workouts planned for the competitors, though I’m only willing to share one of them with you at this point.
- Max Effort Clean and Jerk; Followed by
- Max Height Box Jump (in inches, x4)
- Your score will be your 1 rep max clean and jerk, added to your highest box jump in inches(x4). For example, if you clean and jerk 200 pounds, and jump 50 inches, your score would be 400.
We’ve got spots open for individuals in the open division and scaled competition. Still have a bunch of spots for the teams of 2 as well, and we need anyone interested in volunteering to register so know who is committed.
