The Chipper is a Crossfit Games event from the final competition in July, 2012. The Chipper tests all areas of Health Related Physical Fitness. Each technique requires muscle flexibility and muscle strength. Because the athletes advance through the techniques as fast as possible, muscle and cardiorespiratory endurance are also essential. With 3 of the movements ivolving the handling of one's body weight, body composition becomes a factor as well. The Chipper is not a power lifting competition or long distance run; however, it is a great way to see how you measure up with elite Crossfit athletes. The time for completion becomes the score.

The Chipper is one round, as fast as possible, of:

10 overhead squats at 155 lbs
10 box jump-overs with a 24 inch box
10 thrusters with 135 lbs
10 power cleans with 205 lbs
10 toes to bar
10 burpee muscle ups
10 more toes to bar
10 power cleans with 205 lbs
10 thrusters with 135 lbs
10 box jump-overs
10 overhead squats 155 lbs
To complete this event, practicing and perfecting each lift prior to competition is crucial.
