Here we go, kids—finally—the details for The Outlaw Open…
Date: December 1st & 2nd (Joint event with the USAW American Open.)
Location: Palm Springs, California – The Palm Springs Convention Center
Competition Format: All competitors will start the event with an Olympic Weightlifting Total. Those who have qualified for the USAW American Open will use their Total from that event. Those who have not qualified for the USAW American Open will Total, using USAW standards, as the first event of The Outlaw Open on Saturday morning. The CrossFit style portion of the event will begin after all Totals are complete. There will be no less than five workouts featuring no less than eight data points.
Workouts: All workouts will be announced right here on The Outlaw Way, Monday, October 29nd. All workouts will be written as a collaboration between me, and CJ Martin from CrossFit Invictus. We believe that announcing the workouts 5 weeks in advance will give every competitor a chance to prepare, even if there are movements they are unfamiliar with. We also believe that collaborating on the workouts is the best possible way to avoid any part of the competition favoring one athlete over another.
Prize: $10,000 – winner take all
Competitors: This will be an invitation only event. We would love to make it an open qualification process, but at least for this year’s event we simply do not have the means to accommodate such an undertaking. If you would like to be considered for invitation, please email: Rudy@TheOutlawWay.com.
Scheduled to Compete: Here’s just a few… Pat Barber, Talayna Fortunato, Camille LeBlanc-Bazinet, Caleb Williams, Aja Barto, more to be announced soon.
