Etc., following same pattern until you fail to complete both rounds.

Men’s loading is 95#. Women’s loading is 65#.

Scaling: Men, 65# with chin over bar pull ups. Women , 45# with jumping chest to bar pull ups.

I am sure some of you saw this workout and said to yourself ” I can’t overhead squat that” or ” I can’t even do a pull up, let alone a chest to bar pull up” or Well that was fun. I guess I’m out. That was a wasted $20.” If you did, you have missed the entire point of the CrossFit Open. The Open is about participation. It is about doing things you have never done before. It is about conquering self doubt, fear and self imposed limitations. It is about getting your first overhead squat. It is about doing 10 overhead squats and using the remaining time to try to get a chest to bar pull up. It is about getting your first chest to bar pull up. And more.

We always see the videos of the great CrossFitters destroying workouts. The athletes performing the workouts at the live announcement are the top CrossFitters in the world. What we don’t see are the 99.9% of other CrossFitters like yourselves who are working just as hard and the Pros to get 1, 5 , 10 or 11 reps. Please watch these videos and get inspired.
