2015 Open Thus Far…..

The Pros...

 

This year’s Open has been challenging. All great WOD’s and definitely feel banged up Sunday mornings. I am sure I’ll be able to get back up the steps this morning. Wall Balls are always fun….said nobody, like ever.

15.1:

At least it wasn’t seven minutes of burpees. For those who don’t yet belong to the cult, and for those who have purposefully blocked it from their memory:

15.1

It’s only nine minutes, right? The scaled version was hanging knee raises which are obviously no as challenging as toes to bar, however they still crush your forearms and grip strength. Good times all around. My hands straightened out after few hours. The max clean and jerk was a nice bonus. I was hoping for more of that, however no such luck….yet.

15.2:

Stupid overhead squats. I don’t like them because I am not good at them, so obviously I won’t get any better, since I don’t do them. Turned that little number into front squats quick, fast, and in a hurry.

Every 3 minutes for as long as possible complete:

From 0:00-3:00

2 rounds of:

10 overhead squats (95 / 65 lb.)

10 chest-to-bar pull-ups

From 3:00-6:00

2 rounds of:

12 overhead squats (95 / 65 lb.)

12 chest-to-bar pull-ups

From 6:00-9:00

2 rounds of:

14 overhead squats (95 / 65 lb.)

14 chest-to-bar pull-ups

I can only imagine the hand tears for those made it into multiple rounds. I am sure this place is doing incredibly well financially now. http://riptskinsystems.com/ Skin grows back.

15.3

We all knew muscle ups would make an appearance. I am sure many were hoping it would be later, however here they are. It was really great to see so many people getting their first muscle up.

Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 14 minutes of:
7 muscle-ups
50 wall-ball shots
100 double-unders

For the rest of us it was 50 wall balls and 200 singles. My legs will soon forgive me,..hopefully. This one was probably my favorite of the three.

Only two more WOD’s left! What haven’t we done yet? Burpees, over the bar or over the box. Box jumps. Thrusters. We have never seen TGU’s, so maybe? GHD’s, I am sure whatever Castro has in store for us will be fun and challenging. Hopefully we will have a kicker,finding a heavy one rep. Too much to ask for dead lifts Castro?
