I plan on competing at WZA Miami in the scaled division but I think that I can perform the prescribed version of the workout. Can I?
Absolutely! And we highly encourage it!
What if I perform some workouts as prescribed and some alternate? Can I still compete in Miami?
Yes. Anyone who wishes to compete in any of the qualifying divisions should be performing the prescribed versions of the WZAOC workouts. Everyone who successfully finishes the WZAOC regardless of what version of the workouts they performed or what their ranking is will be eligible for open registration.
Do beginners have to perform the alternate version of the workout?
No. Beginners can perform either version of the workouts based on what they feel best suits their level of fitness.
