2018 Friday Night Lights

 

 

Friday Night Lights is CrossFit Wild South’s in-house CrossFit competition that has teams of 4 using their fitness to compete against each other for points.

Teams compete for points prior to each WOD event, completing various physical, mental and lifestyle challenges that every team member must contribute to in order to gain maximum points. 3 separate WOD events for each Friday Night Lights team to throw down for more points and glory.

 

 

The challenges, bonus points, and WOD scores are totalled so that at the conclusion of the 3 events the overall Friday Night Lights champion team is crowned.

Along with spot prizes for each of the Events, FNL 18.1, FNL 18.2 and FNL 18.3, there are major prizes for the overall team placings.

 

1st Place Team – $100

2nd Place Team – $50

3rd Place Team – $25

 

*Prizes may be cash, products or services and will have a total value as shown above.

 

 

 

 

  • The Coaches will be putting the teams together for FNL 2018

 

  • Teams will consist of  4 athletes – 2 male + 2 female.

 

  • ONE Rx athlete per team to compete in each WOD and will be named the team Captain.

 

  • 2, 3 OR all 4 athletes may be required for any or all WODs. Exact numbers will be released once registrations close on the 22nd June so teams can organise who needs to be where for each FNL EVENT.

 

  • Registrations are CLOSED

 

  • Workouts will be announced at 8 pm the Wednesday prior to each FNL EVENT.

 

  • Entry fee is $10 per person

 

*** The Team Captain is the only Rx athlete allowed per team. (Rx is defined as an athlete who regularly performs the programmed class workouts as prescribed – Rx. Ring and Bar muscle ups are NOT required to be Rx)

*** The CFWS Coaching Team will have the final say on the team make up (not eyeliner and foundation either). 

 

Bonus Points

Every year these make a significant contribution to the overall leaderboard, don’t underestimate how important the bonus points and challenges are to your team.

  • Points can be accumulated throughout the period (fortnight) prior to each Event for, 
    • 5 points per class for up to 4 WOD classes attended, (double points per class if attended with 1 or all teammates)
    • 5 points for attending a Yoga class, (double points if attended with 1 or all teammates)
    • 5 points for an active recovery session with a teammate (walk, run, swim etc)

 

***Team Members (including the Team Captain) who are unavailable for a Friday Night Lights EVENT can be “subbed” by another athlete from CFWS. This change will cost the Team a $10 registration (the replacement will need to register for the event) fee and a 5 burpee time penalty (completed by the Rx athlete at 3…2…1…GO before they can start the WOD)

***Emergency last minute changes due to legit stuff happening – please advise Stacy or Ruth.

This is a great way to support each other, get involved in the community and keep your motivation up over the next wee while and get into it!

 

Event Challenges

During the fortnight prior to each Event, there will be specific challenges for your team to complete together or as individuals. They will be worth points and have played a major role in deciding the overall winners.

———–

FNL18.1 is – “CINDY on Death Row”

FNL18.1 Briefing is 6 pm

Heat 1 starts at 6:30 pm

 

AMRAP 1 – 6 minutes

Max Calorie Row

Max Reps Wall Ball

 

AMRAP 2 – 6 Minutes

Max rounds and reps of “Cindy”

5 Pull Ups

10 HAND RELEASE Push Ups

15 Air Squats

 

Athletes 1+2 complete AMRAP 1 while Athletes 3+4 complete AMRAP 2.

After a 1 minute rest,

Athletes 1+2 complete AMRAP 2 while Athletes 3+4 complete AMRAP 1.

 

WORKOUT DESCRIPTION:

CINDY ON DEATH ROW – FNL18.1, requires all 4 team members to participate and can be paired up as any combination to best suit the strategy of the team.

e.g. MALE/MALE + FEMALE/FEMALE or MALE/FEMALE + MALE /FEMALE.

Both pair of Athletes begin behind the start line, at 3…2…1…GO, they move to their respective AMRAPS

AMRAP 1

At 3…2…1…GO! Athlete 1 will move to the rower and begin rowing. At the same time as this (3…2..1…GO!), Athlete 2 will move to the Wall Balls and begin. Athletes 1 and 2 can swap movements at any time during the 6-minute AMRAP and can be moving either simultaneously OR one at a time (meaning the wall ball athlete can rest while the rower is still in motion and vice versa). AMRAP 1 is scored as the total number of wall balls completed and the total number of calories rowed in the 6 minutes.

AMRAP 2

This workout runs at the same time as AMRAP 1 but with the other pair of Athletes (3 and 4). At 3…2…1…GO! Athlete 3 will move to the pull-up rig and begin “Cindy”. Only one athlete working at a time on any of the movements and MUST tag their partner before they can begin a movement. Athletes 3 and 4 can swap at any stage during the AMRAP as long as a clear tag is made.

Athletes can perform Jumping Pull-ups at a 2:1 ratio, e.g 10 Jumping Pull-ups = 5 Pull Ups

The workout is scored on completed rounds of Cindy and any partial reps to give a total number of Reps completed.

At the completion of each 6-minute AMRAP, there is a 1-minute rest where the athletes swap AMRAPS. Each pair of athletes can only do each AMRAP once, no partner swapping is allowed. Athletes begin each AMRAP from behind the start line.


 

FNL 18.1 Challenges

Teams will be announced Wednesday 27th June between 8 pm and 9 pm via Facebook messenger.

18.1 Team Bonus points are worth 100pts total – 50points for naming your Team and a further 50 points to come along dressed up (closely themed to your team name).

18.1 Team Challenge is Synchronized Team Kettlebell “Floss” dance and is worth 40 points.

All 4 team members must learn the “Floss” dance and perform it with any size kettlebells they like (in each hand), in synchrony, and as a team for a duration of 10 seconds.

A video must be submitted to Stacy no later than 6:30 pm Friday 29th June.

 

***NOTES***

Points for the Floss dance challenge were given based on the number of team mates who were in sync for the 10 seconds of the video, in my opinion. So if I seen 2 members in time, your team score for the challenge was 20 points.

OVERALL points and placings can be seen on the “Leaderboard 2018” tab.

 

 

EMOM – 12 minutes

12 Ground to Overhead 35/25kg

AMRAP Toes to Bar/2:1 Hanging Knee Raises

 

WORKOUT DESCRIPTION:

EMOM-a-sore-us – FNL18.2, requires a maximum of 3 team members to participate and can be any combination to best suit the strategy of the team. This workout can be done with 2 team members, it will just be harder.

All participating athletes begin behind the start line. At 3…2…1…GO!

Athlete 1 will move to the barbell and begin their 12 ground to overhead. Once all 12 reps have been completed, Athlete 1 will move to the rig and complete as many Toes to Bar (Rx Athletes ONLY) or Hanging Knee Raises (Scaled and Teen athletes ONLY) for the remainder of the minute. Athlete 2 MUST remain behind the start line until the timer beeps for their minute to start before moving to their barbell.

Athlete 1 does not need to tag athlete 2 OR be back across the start line in order for Athlete 2 to begin.

Athlete 3 MUST remain behind the start line until the timer beeps for their minute to start before moving to their barbell.

Athlete 2 does not need to tag athlete 3 OR be back across the start line in order for Athlete 3 to begin.

This process repeats for the duration of the 12 EMOM’s.

NOTES

***Athletes do not need to stay in the same order and there is no requirement for the work to be evenly shared, but all athletes MUST complete at least 1 of the EMOM’s.

***Each team must have 1 male bar and 1 female/teen bar set up. Every 2 Hanging Knee Raises completed is the same as 1 Toes to Bar Rep, in the event of an uneven number of reps being performed, i.e 9, the athletes’ score will be rounded back to 8 Hanging Knee Raises (4 reps).

Download and print off your team sheets to keep track of your Team points. These are to be handed in, completed, by 6 pm Friday 13th July, 2018.

Friday Night Lights 2018 - Questionnaire
How long have you been part of the Crew?
Don't be shy, tell us what brought you through the doors.
We know that consistency is one of the keys to success no matter what we do in life. So why do you keep coming back to CrossFit Wild South?
Prior to CrossFit what, if anything, did you do?
We know you keep track of things, so tell us what progress you have notice in yourself over the past 12 months or so.
We picked the teams this year as a way for our community to get to know each other more. Often our lives and training times don't allow us a good chance to meet and talk to some members of the community. Tell us something that you didn't know previously about one (or more) of your team mates.
It can be a little scary starting CrossFit, if you could sit down 1 on 1 with someone thinking about making some positive changes to their health and fitness, what would you tell them?
Anything at all, even the smallest of things is good to share.
What do you have planned, that you wish to share, over the next 3, 6, 12 months or beyond?
Let us know what you thought of the event, how it was run, prizes, workouts, inclusiveness etc. Basically just jot down a few words about how you felt about this years event.
