10 rounds of:
8 ground to overhead (29kg?/20kg?)
10 burpee facing the bar
TIMECAP: 15 min

Step up is allowed. For the movement standards of each of the divisions, please consult the official Games website.

Strategy 20.1

The weight of the bar is light for most athletes doing the wod, being. the snatch the fastest ground to overhead movement. The focus should be on the burpees and transitions.

Most of the time will have to be spent doing the burpees. so it is important to perform sets that maximize performance while minimizing rests.

It will be a good WOD for athletes who have managed to make burpees a very efficient movement. Good luck to all!

Open standards 20.2

We recommend that you review the movement standards for each division directly at the official CrossFit website.

Strategy 20.2

In a wod of this type in which the work must be maintained for 20 minutes, the most important thing is to find a rhythm. For the majority of mortals who will make the Open, we cannot imagine a wod without breaks, but we must plan them so that they are as efficient as possible..

The range of repetitions is small enough to not having to do in mini-seriesand if you have to break, keep that structure. of series during the entire wod. Count your breaks1,2,3,4,5... and start again.

It is important not to start on fire, otherwise it will be impossible for you to have a good result because your performance will plummet.

And if you're still stuck on double unders, now is the best time to learn how to get them out. Need a tip for double unders? Here's one of the videos that has helped the most people. This is how I learned to do DU.

How to draw the lines on the floor?

hand stand walk open lines
  • Before starting, the floor should be marked in 5-foot segments. Most tape measures have cm on one side and ft on the other.
    measuring feet in crossfit
  • You must draw 5 segments on the ground so that they are 25 ft/ft in one direction and 25 ft/ft in the other.
  • It is not valid to walk more than 25 feet without turning around.

Strategy 20.3

Much of the effort should be focused on the hspu since the standard of movement gives very little margin for error, it is very easy to lose time with no reps, and it is also uselessly tiring.

Take your measurements, mark the line that should exceed your heels. and ask someone to keep an eye on you. Practice this in your warm-up to get the hang of the movement and not waste time and energy on pine push-ups.

For most mortals, this is a type of wod that never ends. Your motivation should be to beat the mark of two Opens ago.

Strategy 20.4

If you have been able to see the elite athletes doing this wod you will realize that this wod is not meant to be finished by the rest of mortals like you and me. The best time in Diablo CrossFit has been of 16.40 by Ben SmithThe unofficial mark. His two presentation partners, although they have been very close, have not finished all the work in time.

Box jumps and burpees can be a tough combination but with the right tempo for your level, you can build up the reps. The problem will come in the bar that really ends up too heavy.

We were missing a very high rm or weight in the Open, here we have it 🙂 Best of luck to all.

To finish this Open we will have Annie Thorisdottir, now 4th in the world, and Patrik Vellner 2nd in the general classification.

Both athletes are veterans of the CrossFit Games, are in very good position to earn their invitation to the 2020 Games with the Open, and have previously been live announcing the Open.

Another option to see the first attempt at elite athletes with this wod is by watching the Willy Georges vs. Streat Hoerner head-to-head.

Georges has been the fittest man in France consecutively these last 3 years. Both with the feeling that at the Games they had more to prove even though the new cutting system left them out of the finals.

Dave has given us food for thought again with his latest track. A piece of plastic that at one end is one fork and on the other a spoon. Many see very clearly that there will be kipping, and that there will be 5 movements in representation of this image. Others still think that Castro is just playing a game of misdirection.

Strategy 20.5

We are not accustomed to the fact that the director of the Games let us share out the wod as we please. Undoubtedly, the strategy that each athlete designs according to his strengths and weaknesses will make the difference in the final result.

The wod once again has a wide time cap, the most advisable is to start with the exercises that you master, intercalate them between them to reduce specific fatigue, and leave for the end the exercise that is stuck "to try to add repetitions".

For example: if your weakest exercise is ring muscle ups (as for most mortals), and you are hardly going to do 40 repetitions, it is better to leave it for the end.. You can start with a series of rowing and wall ball type 20 and 30, completing 4 sets. When you have completed the repetitions of these exercises, gradually add attempts at ring muscle ups.

Cheer up everyone, it's the last one! and those ring muscle ups can help to to remove a thorn in the side of someone who was unable to take them out at the 2018 Opens.
