Ring muscle-ups have been in the open at least twice that I can recall..
Pretty sure there has been muscle ups, ring or bar, in every year of the open. Most of the time they appear at the end of a workout.
MU in general are used to separate many athletes. One of the more complex movements within Crossfit. Can definitely expect them again this year.
18.2 actually looks fun
It's going to be real fun when I get to about round 7 and my quads are burning and about to lock up and I realize, mid burpee on the floor, that I'm just barely halfway through. And when I finish there's a max clean waiting on me if I beat the time cap
Got a good feeling I’m looking at power cleans tomorrow night.
And to add to the muscle-up discussion, I’m fully expecting rings this year. I’ve done the bar muscle-up Rx the last 2 years and haven’t had to touch an Rx WOD with ring muscle-ups since I started so it’s time.
I don't think I pushed first part hard enough at all. I'm redoing on Sunday.
Gym does an Open Thursday night throw down between 2 more-or-less evenly matched RX members. The 2 that went last night severely lowered my expectations, they struggled to get 80-90% of their 1RM.
Think I'm load up the bar with a no-doubt power clean weight and work from there, they did say squat cleans got easier as there legs loosened up from the WOD....
Yeah the lady last night didn’t even look like she could bend her legs.
not my workout at all. hate burpees so much.
235 on clean. just did Power, my legs were toast.
Wrist has been in a splint for a few days to try to settle my CTS.
This one was a struggle. 10:27 Rx with a 185 lb clean (10 below 1RM). Had time for 4 attempts and failed 190 with just enough time to get the 2.5s off and try again.
I’m one and done for each one this year.
just finished my redo:
i really sent it on the first part and shaved 1:18 off my time from Friday (7:16). i was toast after that though, failed first 3 reps of cleans and had to keep going down until i could hit something. 37 pounds less than Friday's 257.
threw up after. good times! lol
i'm going to submit today's score. i think the fast metcon will count for more than the pounds on the lift.
Went again today. 7:30 and 245
9:38 and 205. Pretty disappointed. Had a pretty big drinking weekend and wasn't feeling too great.
800 double unders
Not sure I've done that many in my life yet
These pros aren’t even going to make the time hack.
lol I don’t have a fucking chance.
Maybe I get through a hand full of the ring muscle ups.
Wrist pain is definitely going to factor into this bullshit for me. I hate this.
1 round + 53 DU (517 reps)
It’s all DU, the other stuff is just a distraction
I have to scale it. The more I think about it, the more I’m going to cause myself serious agony.
Although 115 is pretty doable for me in chunks usually, I don’t think I can stabilize it and I’m not about to expedite surgery for Dave Castro.
Play it safe man. That’s the right attitude. It’s frustrating but it will still be a good workout. You’ll be better for it
Basically, I’m treating this as MU practice, I’ll get off a few but there’s no way I can do 12.
I think it is an odd choice to have an open workout that’s too hard for your games athletes to complete
Did scaled this morning. Man that was a lot of jump roping, got 916 reps. A little annoyed as I've been really sick for over a week now. I think fresh I could have finished.
Thanks for the confidence. I think it’s coming at a terrible time for me as I finally have ring muscle-ups and still haven’t gotten to log them Rx on a WOD. I’m capable of all of the moves, which sets me ahead of a lot of athletes. But I agree with you. It’ll test me on the scaled side as 90% of my gym will be tackling the same thing and I think I’m capable of finishing it scaled.
It’s basically a 14’ AMRAP. Not sure why everyone is so wrapped up on the time cap aspect.
My calves are already lit up. So many DUs.
Because it isn’t an amrap. It’s an oddly designed workout.
Noah got 921/928. Godddddd
got to the Ring MUs at 6:53 and finished with 230 haha. I hate them so much. Half of them i couldn't complete so it was just a waste. May try again monday
Even single unders were a bitch. That was hell on the feet.
887 scaled. My wife shorted me a ton of reps. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
2 muscle ups... I suck
Great job fellas. This one is hard, every movement but the snatch is tough skill.
Did muscle up for first time. Also did first set of 100 DU's unbroken which is most I've done unbroken. Got to muscle ups in 4:43 and managed 5. I'll take it.
that's awesome man, really well done.
So even Mat Fraser couldn’t finish the workout.
Games athletes that had done 500+ DU's unbroken were struggling in their third set. It was a super aggressive time cap for sure.
104 reps (14 reps at 315#)
5:07 tie break
the new HSPU is very challenging. you have to get to full triple extension through your hips to clear the line. just having your arms locked out isn't enough. i took 3 no reps because of this.
good luck guys!
Yeah these last two workouts are killing your average Rx guys.
Going to be lots of no reps or lenient graders.
I can't get the kipping motion down for hspu. I def need more practice, but I got the kipping motion for pullups down really quickly. I always end up kicking away from the wall
Push your knees out wider instead of in front of you and it will help keep you on the wall.
got 65. standard was so tough. spent so much energy just getting myself above the line.
totally agree. you have to triple extend your hips to even make it happen.
should have switched to single reps earlier
88. Sorta happy with it and sorta pissed I didn't finish the first leg.
62 and my judge is dead to me.
I was apparently a little too deliberate with my reps. My coach came over 6 minutes in and told me I was clearing the line by an inch. I told my judge multiple times I wanted to hear a cue for every good rep so I wasn’t intentionally holding it for too long and wasting energy. He wouldn’t do it and, for that matter, he wouldn’t tell me if he no repped me.
I have a ~10:00 Diane usually and respect the height of the reps. I still think I’m capable of finishing it but I can’t afford a retest with my wrist so I vowed for everything to be one and done this year. I’m just fucking angry right now.
I'm too big to efficiently meet the standard, wears me out.
Yeah this open has confirmed that crossfit is easiest for those 5’5” guys.
I think it's pretty remarkable what Brent Fikowski has done the past couple years at 6'2"
There is a certain build that's more conducive to success, but my main problem is that I'm just too heavy which is 100% on me... working on it though.
Lots of gymnastic moves, that makes sense. Wish there was more oly lifting though. 1RM clean was the only heavy lifting required, and that was a power for most after doing those DB squats and burpees
(11 C2B into the 18r)
I repeated today after getting 115 on Friday. Congrats on finishing The Open guys. The hard work is done, now we can chill.
