The Open- yeah Burpees!
The healthiest competition occurs when average people win by putting above average effort. – Colin Powell
Anyone who has ever tried a WOD has a bit of a love hate relationship with it. Two of the best things are the competition or sport side of it and the community/team aspect of the whole thing. Both are front and center each year for the CrossFit Games Open Sectional. Regardless of your goals (games, regional’s, completing the open Rxed or testing your limits) this is a great opportunity to compete with like minded ( hat’s more PC than crazy right) people in fun atmosphere and by fun we mean a run down, abandoned warehouse with loud music, cool people and a few cold beverages .
Each week we will follow the same format with a different location for the Saturday Event. Here’s how it will work this week. Each Wednesday at 8 PM the WOD will be announced. We will practice it on Thursday during class. If you are absolultley not able to make it to the event Saturday we will judge you during the WOD Thursday. If those times do not work for you , you will need to make an appointment with a coach. Immediatley following the WOD you will enter your score on the games site. I have to validate all the scores by Sunday at 8 PM and I don’t want to spend my whole night validating scores so be responsible and get it done.
Saturday February 25th 1:00 PM at Fit Club
1:00- we will have a brief meeting and heats will be assigned
1:15 ish- Heat s will begin
After the event we will have a few beverages (not Halloween) in the garage. Some of us will be going to Milestone 229 to get some food and dranks.
So here it is WOD 1 (12.1 technically)
Complete as many reps as possible in 7 minutes of:
This workout begins from the standing position. The Athlete will move from flat on the ground to touching an object with both hands that is 6 inches above their max reach. Score is total reps completed.
Yup, thats it. A little disappointing if you ask me but thats it, just burpees, should be simple enough fall down and jump up for 7 minutes
