2016 Open: 16.1

Josh-Everett Josh Everett, CrossFit Games OG, will provide strategies and tips for each Open workout this season! If you’ve ever spent any time around Josh as a coach or athlete, you know, he’s the real deal. Josh’s insights will be posted here each week!

20-min. AMRAP:

25-ft. overhead lunge
8 burpees
25-ft. overhead lunge
8 chest-to-bar pull-ups

M 95 lb. W 65 lb.

Josh’s advice:
1. Keep Moving! Pace properly at the beginning. Be the tortiose not the hare.

2. Commit to doing all of the lunges unbroken – adding snatches to this workout isn’t advisable. If you need to rest, do it during transitions or by breaking up the pull-ups or the burpees. I guarantee you’ll take longer to get back on the lunges than you will to restart burpees or pull-ups.

3. Set a goal for time spent per round… probably 2 goals… one pace for the first 10 minutes and one pace for the 2nd half. Take the workout 1 round at a time and commit to hitting your individual round goals.

        Thanks! I was super stoked I did each one one at a time. I had to kip and then pull at the top to do it? The lunges and burpees felt great

  1. Ryan Pack

    7.5 rounds ( 195 Reps)

    -should have done some shoulder mobility before bc these were tight and affected my rhythm on the C2B’s
    – thought the transition from the OHL’s to the C2B’s was the hardest part.

    Legs are sore today

  2. Sebastien Benisty
