As with all the events at CrossFit Quake, you can expect great workouts, live DJ, food & apparel vendors and great prize bags with lots of goodies. T-shirt deadline is April 4th.

MPS2.0 will be a M/M, F/F and M/F comp with 3 categories to choose from:
RX division: for experienced athletes who are able to perform most workouts as prescribed
MASTERS division: for experienced athletes age 40+ who are able to complete most workouts as prescribed. This division is NOT for athletes who need to scale.
SCALED division: for newer athletes who are not able to do most workouts as prescribed. This is on the honor system so don't make us call you out if you don't belong in SCALED!
As of now there will be 3 workouts plus a final. More details will be released soon.

Workout #1 of the MPS2.0 will be a max lift. Partner #1 will have 4 minutes to find their heaviest snatch. Then partner #2 will have 4 minutes to do the same. You can make as many attempts as you like in your 4 minutes and the resting partner can assist with removing/loading weight from the bar. Score will be the total of the heaviest successful lift of each partner. See below for division specific details.
