Several of you have asked about whether or not to do the Throwdown in the Rx’d division or the Almost Rx’d division. First off, great job in just stepping up and committing to this awesome event. I commend you for that. It’s a terrific experience and one you definitely won’t regret.
So, here are movements and weights you should be able to do if competing in the Rx’d division:
Deadlifts for several reps (205# for men/123# for women)
Box jumps (28″ for men/24″ for women)
Pull-ups (at least 5 at a time or darn close to it)
Wall ball shots (20# for men to a 10′ target/14# for women to a 9′ target)
Ground to overhead for several reps (95# for men/63# for women)
If you look at the above movements and weights and feel confident in your ability to perform them, then you should enter into the Rx’d category. Keep in mind, the movements and weights may change, but this should give you a good indication of what is expected in the Rx’d division.
