Beat the Streets

Beat the Streets is our annual fundraiser for Steve's Club King of Prussia, a chapter of the Steve's Club National Program (www.stevesclub.org). Steve's Club King of Prussia provides free CrossFit classes, Olympic weightlifting  and Powerlifting to disadvantaged youth of all ages.

Our Fundraiser will take place on Martin Luther King Day, Monday January 18th in all of our classes throughout the day. The workout is open to the local CrossFit community and all ages are welcome to participate. The suggested donation is $25, or you could sponsor an athlete for a month for $100. Even small donations are welcome.

2015 Beat the Streets Partner Workout:
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible (AMRAP) in 12 minutes of:
20 Shoulder to Overhead (135# for men / 95# for women)
30 Power Cleans (135# for men / 95# for women)
40 Burpees

Two athletes per team, any combination of male and female, adult and youth. One athlete works at a time, and each athlete must do an equal number of reps. For example, each athlete must do 10 Shoulder to Overhead, breaking them up any way they want, to get to the team total of 20 (partner A can do 10 reps and partner B can then do 10 reps; or partner A can do 5 reps, then partner B does 5 reps, then partner A does 5 reps, then partner B does the final 5 reps; etc.). An athlete’s barbell and/or feet must return to the ground before his/her partner can begin working.

Scoring: The team’s score is the total number of repetitions completed in 12 minutes. Every rep counts, and credit will be given for partially completed rounds.

Movement Standards: The workout begins from a standing position with the barbell on the ground, loaded to the appropriate weight. One athlete will work at a time, and after each athlete has completed an equal number of reps, the team will move on to the next movement. Shoulder to Overhead: with the barbell starting on the ground the athlete must get it to their shoulders and then to a full lockout overhead any way possible (press or jerk). The bar must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the heels. Can be a strict press, push press, push jerk, or split jerk. Power Cleans: with the barbell starting on the ground the athlete must clean the bar to their shoulders. The movement is complete when the athlete's hips and knees are fully extended and elbows in front of the bar. Burpees: athlete’s chest and thighs must touch the ground at the bottom. At the top, athlete’s hips must reach an open position after jumping, and athlete must clap overhead with ears showing in front of arms.
