First Week of Workouts for the International Online Qualifier Will Be Announced Tonight

On August 21st, workouts for Week 1 of the International Online Qualifier (IOQ) will be released.

Editors note: This article has been updated to clarify that the International Online Qualifier is an event hosted and organized by Sanctional™ organizers and not CrossFit, Inc.

On August 21st, the first workouts for Week 1 of the International Online Qualifier (IOQ) will be released.

As of right now, the IOQ will be used by four Sanctionals™ events this season. So far, these Sanctionals include,

  1. Wodapalooza CrossFit Festival (February 20 – 23, 2020 in Miami, Florida, U.S.)
  2. The CrossFit Atlas Games (April 3 – 5, 2020 in Montreal, Canada)
  3. The SouthFit Challenge (December 20 – 21, 2019 in Buenos Aires, Argentina)
  4. The CrossFit Filthy 150 (November 22 – 24, 2019 in Dublin, Ireland)

The IOQ is not technically a CrossFit event, as it is hosted by Sanctional organizers; winners of Sanctional events may receive invites to the Reebok CrossFit Games.

It won’t be much of a surprise as to what the first workout for Week 1 will be, since last week Wodapalooza announced the opening workout of the IOQ on their Instagram page. This announcement was revealed by a live workout featuring some of the biggest names in the fitness community.

The IOQ first workout:

9-minute as many reps as possible (AMRAP)

  • 3 Hang Power Snatch 75/55
  • 3 Overhead Squat 75/55
  • 30 Double Unders

We now know the date for the first workout reveal for the 2019-2020 CrossFit Open. On October 10th, the announcement for the first Open workout will become public.

According to Wodapalooza’s Instagram page, the announcement for IOQ Workout 1 is set for 8 p.m. ET.

We’re excited to see how this season will shake out with the recently announced 28 total Sanctional events set to run from November through July 2020, and the brand new format to this year’s Open.
