Re-test

19.2, the second workout of the 2019 CrossFit Open, is a repeat from two years ago. The combination of gymnastics and heavy barbell had me excited and nervous, that I won’t be able to beat my pervious score.

Right out of the gate I was a little too confident and decided to ignore my plan of 9-8-8 on the toes-to-bar. Instead I did an aggressive set of 15-10. Due to this decision my core was taxed and it became like toes-to-bar workout.

The other two movements felt good. Double-unders I tripped on the 3 round and the squat cleans got heavier as the workout progressed which was the intention.

Beginning on an 8 minute clock, complete as many reps as possible of:
25 Toes-to-bar
50 Double-unders
15 Squat cleans (85lbs)
25 Toes-to-bar
50 Double-unders
13 Squat cleans (115lbs)
If completed before 8 minutes, add 4 minutes to the clock and proceed to:
25 Toes-to-bar
50 Double-unders
11 Squat cleans (145lbs)
If completed before 8 minutes, add 4 minutes to the clock and proceed to:
25 Toes-to-bar
50 Double-unders
9 Squat cleans (175lbs) If completed before 8 minutes, add 4 minutes to the clock and proceed to:
25 Toes-to-bar
50 Double-unders
7 Squat cleans (205lbs)
20 minute time cap

Score: 256 split time 11:00 (2019)

Score: 256 split time 10:54 (2016)

I was hoping to improve my score from 2 years ago but I tied it. When I think about the big picture, 2 kids later, and training by myself, with the little time I have. I’m should be thrilled, but I’m not.
