Anne, Drexel and Carrido will be heading up to Canada this weekend to compete in the 2nd Annual Nutts Cup at CrossFit Vancouver. The event is to remember and celebrate the life of Andy “Nutts” Nuttall. It is a 3-person team format, with 28 teams competing for the top spot. There is a $5,000 pot with $3,000 going to the winning team. Reebok and Fitness Town are also on board as sponsors providing top finishers with a bunch of cool prizes.
There will be three WOD’s throughout the day.
WOD 1: 6 Squat Snatches, every minute on the minute for 10 minutes
-As a team pick a weight (women 60%)
-Weight is locked in and cannot be changed once the WOD begins
-Highest weight over the 10 rounds wins
-One team member at a time, minimum 1 rep per team member
-Pro rate rounds completed if DNF (8 Rounds = 80%)
-1 men’s bar, 1 women’s bar per team
WOD 2: AMRAP 5 Minutes of MUSCLE UPS!

WOD 3: “Nutts” Team Time Trial
As a team…
-40 Deadlifts (275/165)
-40 Box Jumps (30/24)

-550m Plate Run (45/25): One person per on each team will carry the plate the entire way. The first plate (in possession) across the line wins!
The first WOD might be a little rough for us, since we’re not a big, strong team. But the other two are sort of up our alley, so let’s hope we have a good showing 🙂
