Open, Closed

JT Scott | 03/24/2019 | 6

Congratulations to everyone who participated in this year’s CrossFit Open! Y’all did a great job whether you were competing, judging, or just cheering on your friends! It was wonderful to see y’all bring your families and throw down on Friday nights, and just a delight to see so many firsts and PRs. Your coaches won’t forget, and we’ll remind you so you don’t forget either: you’re stronger than you think.

Today’s workout is just how we like it: simple and effective. It’s not *quite*┬árunning season yet but we’ll get our cardio on the rowers. (Though your coaches have been keeping a keen eye on the temps on the forecast so you can look forward to doing some running this Friday…) Instead, we’ll be getting a bit of the old “push/pull” on in a couplet that gives you no room to breathe.

After the high volume on Friday, this will seem like a positively short workout! Don’t skimp on the weight, though – we want this to hit that real sweet spot of “oh god I want to set this bar down so I can breathe, but I don’t really HAVE to set it down”. It’s just 62 reps overhead, perfect for a middlin-heavy load that demands your respect and rewards your attention to keeping elbows up and midline tight.
