Origin

In 1901, delegates from Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho, banded together seeking to form a new state in the union, one they would call Lincoln. The proposal was unsuccessful, yet surfaced again in the 1920’s, this time to include Western Montana with the hopes the larger area might be more convincing. Likeminded people were hoping their voices would be better represented in their new state. Although the idea did not gain the traction necessary, it has since surfaced multiple times, each with the goal of coming together to better represent the strengths of this geographical area.

There are similarities to this idea in the Fitness community. Many significant competitions are held yearly in the I-5 corridor, but what about the athletes that live and train in the geographical boundaries of the proposed northern state of Lincoln? Our area is home to many incredible athletes and yet there are not many individual competitions that our area hosts where elite, competitive, and RX athletes can come together to compete against and push one another towards betterment.

The Lincoln

The Lincoln Fitness competition will have multiple different divisions in 2022:
Elite and Competitive individuals
Competitive and RX same gender teams.

Converging in Spokane, Washington (what was the proposed capitol of Lincoln) at the county fairgrounds on November 5th and 6th, this two day competition will use CrossFit Open/Regional style programming to find the best male and female athletes from the region.

In its 3rd year, The Lincoln will allocate 50% of all registration fees (up to $6,000!) toward the podium cash prizes. It's our belief that those competing in regional events should have an opportunity to win more than a bag of coupons and supplements.

We look forward to an incredible event showcasing the best athletes in the “State of Lincoln”.

*tie break will be noted at the end of each round.

Flow

At 3-2-1 go, athletes will step to their first mat to a preloaded bar and begin working on their first lifts at the starting weight. After all 5 lifts have been made, athletes will change to the next predetermined weight on their own bar and begin working on the next 5 lifts. Once all 5 lifts have been made, athletes will once again change their own weight to the final predetermined weight for the first mat and begin their 5 lifts. If an athlete is able to successfully make all 15 lifts at the appropriate weights within the 3:00 minute time frame, they will advance to the next lifting mat and wait to begin lifting for the next interval. After each 3:00 minute interval, there is a mandatory :90 rest. Athletes may not touch the next bar during this rest period. After :90 rest, the next 3:00 interval begins, and athletes will now begin working on 3 reps at the preloaded bar. Once all 3 reps are accomplished, athletes will change their weights to the next predetermined weight for the bar. This pattern continues with one more set of 3 lifts on the second mat, and then 3 single lifts on the final mat. The same work/rest interval will be used between the first and second lifting mats and second and third lifting mats. A tiebreak will be noted if/when athletes successfully finishe all lifts for each of the three lifting mats.

Structure

3x3:00 lifting intervals
1:30 rest between intervals

Standards

Barbell will begin on the floor and each successive rep must start with the barbell coming off of the floor. Athletes must snatch the weight from the floor to an overhead supported position while passing through a full squat with hip crease below the top of the knee. Athletes must show control at the top of the movement with the barbell fully overhead and knees and hips fully extended before lowering weight for next reps. Touch and Go reps are permitted. If an athlete chooses to drop weight, the barbell must drop in front of the body and the barbell must start fully on the mat for the next successive lift. If at any point during the lift another part of athletes body (ie. knee) touches the mat or athletes’ feel leave the mat, it will be considered a no rep. Athletes are in charge of changing their own weights during the event. Lift must fully be made before the time cap of each interval to count.

Once athlete finishes, they reverse the order of the HS walk/OH lunge (elite) and OH carry/back rack lunge (competitive) working their way the same 50’ (25’/25’) distances. Workout will conclude with athlete finishing final 50’ length and sprinting through the rig.
