Announcing the Nor’Easter Masters 2014!

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 11.17.19 AM

The Nor-Easter is a two-day fitness competition. The first annual NEM took place in 2013 at Reebok CrossFit One and was a huge success.

The Nor’Easter Masters (NEM) 2014 details are here:

Saturday, June 28th and Sunday, June 29th at CrossFit Milford in Milford, CT.

TJ’s Events will be running the show once again, with Reebok stepping up as a generous event sponsor and CF Milford Owner, Jason Leydon, assisting from the venue as we plan from Northern CA.

The Nor-Easter is a two-day fitness competition for athletes ages 40 and up.  Age groups in each gender will be 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, and 60+.

The Nor’Easter is presented by TJ’s Gym Events, the engine behind the wildly successful NorCal Masters event.  We are, once again, taking our show on the road, this time landing in Milford, CT at CF Milford.

Workouts will be challenging and will include advanced movements and weights appropriate for competitive Masters athletes.  There will be no scaled divisions, but we have always been extremely inclusive and encourage you to join the competition, even if you’re not a high-level competitor.  We look forward to the usual gritty performances and inspiring stories we have come to expect from the Masters group.

We expect to cap registration at 200 athletes.  We will post the registration link at 7:00am PST/10:00am EST Monday, March 17th.  We anticipate selling out this event, so please register right away if you’d like to join us.

WORKOUTS ARE HERE!!!!! (all but the finals). Sorry for the late post!

The three main workouts count 18% each.  The three miniwods count 9% each. The finals for top 5 athletes in each division (all 3 for 60+ men and women) will count as 19% of your overall score.

WOD 1 Clean and Jerk Ladder Combined with Chest to Bar or Regular Pullups

C and J ladder AMRAP per minute

Ages 40-49: 95/135, 105/145, 115/155, 125/165, 130/175, 140/185, 145/195

Ages 50-54 men 50-59 wmn: 65/95, 75/115, 85/125, 95/135, 100/145, 105/155, 110/165

Ages 55-59m and 60+ : 55/75, 65/95, 75/115, 85/125, 95/135, 100/145, 105/155

The barbell ladder will alternate with Amrap chest-to-bar per minute for ages 40-49 and AMRAP regular pullups for ages 50 and up.

Each athlete will move from barbell #1 to pullup station #1 to barbell #2, to pullup station #2, etc. with a judge following along.

**You must do at least one rep of C and J in order to continue with the workout.  If you can’t do at least one rep, you can do 5 burpees in that minute, instead.  Once you have done burpees, you must do burpees for all subsequent barbell minutes.  You will get a 0 for all minutes you perform burpees for your C and J score but you can continue on in the workout.  If you run out of time and don’t get a C and J or 5 burpees in a minute, you will not be allowed to progress through the rest of the ladder in either C and J or pull-ups, and your score will be the reps you’ve gotten up to that point.

**You must do at least one rep of pull-ups each pullup minute, or you will have to stop at that minute. Your score will be the reps you’ve gotten to that point.


Barbells 1 and 2: Each C and J will count as 1 rep

Barbells 3 and 4: Each C and J will count as 2 reps

Barbells 5 and 6:  Each C and J will count as 3 reps

Barbell 7:  Each C and J will count as 4 reps

This means that as the weights increase, each rep counts more.

33% C2B/pullup total reps
