CrossFit Games Open 16.5

Straight up hats off to all the athletes who did it last night already.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen that face on Nick Dupuis before, Michelle surprised herself with a well executed plan, Alexandra lost to 2 years ago Alexandra by 3 seconds but has “made her peace with that,” Marcy made 65 lbs look like a toothpick….a really evil toothpick, Brent found the gas pedal near the end, and Brison PR’d by 3 minutes!
So here’s the deal. This is a different kind of WoD. It’s the end of the Open. It’s what I would call a hit it and quit it. Unless you’re on the cusp of regionals.
ALSO….there are a lot of us who could do this WoD Rx’d. But check it out, the fittest men in the world took about 8-9 minutes.
So here’s the guideline. If you can’t do the weight you want to do 21 times unbroken, and do it well, it’s too much weight. It’s a test of fitness. If you go over 25 minutes you made a bad decision. It’s 84 thrusters mixed with 84 burpees. To finish in 15 minutes you can take no more than 5 seconds per rep, for the entire workout. So be reasonable, be efficient, have fun, and finish with nothing left in the tank!!!
We have a lot of classes available to get it in today, including noon. We would love to not have to work tomorrow if possible…but if it’s really the only time you can do it we are willing.
Please let Josh or Alex know that you can only do it on Saturday morning and we will accommodate you. If we don’t get any requests, we won’t be opening. CFSL will be open from 10-12 on Saturday morning as an option as well.
Now…show us what you got!!!
