Tips for tackling the WOD

"This WOD is a trap," said Mat Fraser in the live announcement. The pyramid structure can give you the false sense that it is not a lot of repetitions. but there are 100 of them!

By the time you reach the halfway point you will realize how hard it is, at least at that point the repetitions will start to go down one at a time.

The WOD is won in the second half, you need to be energized for the second half. Try not to go at too fast a pace to push yourself to the limit too early.


It is 10 minutes of WOD, the high intensity is assuredWe have to be prepared if we want a good result.

For a good warm-up, it is recommended to increase the heart rate and prepare the muscles involved.

  • Warm up for 5 minutes on a machine (rowing, assault...)
  • Series of approximation to the weight of the deadlift. Hip flexors and posterior chain have to be ready for action.
  • Practice transitions: releasing the bar, dropping to the burpee and the jump with the twist.

RX or scaling?

70 kg or 102 kg seems affordable weight for many and burpees is not a technical movement. But can you really do RX?

It will depend on whether or not you want to finish the WOD..

Reflect before deciding and do it with your personal criteria and objectives, you do not have to impress anyone, in fact in 2 weeks no one will remember what you did:


In a quick calculation there is a maximum time of 6 seconds per movement to finish in 10 min.

RX weights may not seem like much to you if for example your personal best is 120 or 180, but you have to do that effort 100 times combined with burpees. 10 minutes doesn't give you much time to think about each repetition, nor to recover.

  • Can you do 100 repetitions with the 50% a your personal brand of deadlift? The WOD will leave you flat on the floor, but, onward to the RX! But remember that the back is for life, not just for 3 weeks of Open.
  • Your goal is to try to make all Open in RX. In that case, it's okay for them to do RX as well knowing that they probably won't finish before the time cap.


Surely the scaled version is more suitable for:

  • those who want to give more speed to the WOD and have the sensations of the pro athletes in the live. It doesn't mean it's easier, with less weight you have no excuse to stop.
  • people who want to take special care with the back and are not willing to gamble with untechnical repetitions.
