Wodapalooza Team Qualifier Highlights

Written by William Imbo

The Wodapalooza same-gender 3-person team event wrapped up Nov. 12, with a punishing set of 10 workouts for each team to complete and submit. Teammates did not have to be from the same location or even complete any of the online qualifier workouts physically in the same location. Athletes had 10 days to complete the 10 workouts, listed below. The workouts tested nearly every component of fitness, and athletes saw some familiar faces (Girl WODs Jackie, Karen and Fran, for example), as well as some time trials and the Devil’s Press, a somewhat unfamiliar dumbbell complex.

Workout Highlights
Though they may not be competing for a spot at the CrossFit Games, these athletes are no joke. On the men’s side, in workout 5, 8th place team El Equipo De Tejas completed Jackie, Karen and Fran in 11:48 – with their Fran time being a mind-numbing 1:58. Third-place men’s team Batata Con Manteca completed 90 bar muscle ups in 4:13 – and their top guy completed 40 unbroken reps. Not to be outdone, on the ladies side, the number two qualifying team Bigg Power Girls completed the bar muscle ups in 4:25, also with a single woman completing 40 unbroken bar muscle ups. Workout 4, a cumulative load of 5 heaviest snatches in a three-minute window, Team Soul took this event (and the entire qualifier) with a cumulative load of 525 pounds, with their top girl snatching 180 five times within the three-minute window.
