The Elite division for the 2019 Battle of the Barbells is designed with the Region’s top athletes in mind. Athletes can expect to be tested by a variety of high skill and high load movements across broad time and modal domains. In order to be considered for this division, athletes should meet the following criteria :
– Male – Top 500 in the 2019 CrossFit Games Open (in your region)
– Females – Top 300 in the 2019 CrossFit Games Open (in your region)
– Athletes that have competed individually or on a team at the CrossFit Regionals or CrossFit Games in the last 2 years
Didn’t do the open this year? Or fall outside of the qualification but think you have what it takes to compete at this level? Email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us why we should consider you for our Elite division, please include relevant competition experience. Athletes who meet the criteria, decided by our staff, will be invited to compete in this division.
The RX division for the 2019 Battle of the Barbells will be the same level of competition as in previous years. Athletes will be tested on movements and WODs similar to Regionals, however weights will be moderate and gymnastics movements will be similar to the past four years of our competition.
Athletes competing in the Scaled Division for the 2019 Battle of the Barbells can expect the same level of competition as the past two years. Weights will be light to moderate and most gymnastics movements will be scalable. This division will include DOUBLE UNDERS but is still perfect for first time competitors.
