THE SCALED COMPETITION
Not everyone is ready to compete at higher levels, yet. However competing is fun and it will give the possibility to compare yourself with others who are in the same situation. Therefore The Berlin Throwdown will offer the possibility to participate in an competition whilst scaling the WODs.
The scaled division is aimed at athletes who want to compete but may not have the experience to compete in the RX division, yet. The WODs will be similar to the RX/Intermediate qualifier workouts, but the weights will be lighter and the movements may be scaled.
Registration will close at 22:00 (CET) on Sunday 5th of May. No late entries will be accepted.
