2019 Open Prep

The CrossFit Open begins this week. I was on the fence about whether I wanted to participate in the Open this year, for many reason. Time, commitment, and the main reason: fear of failure. In past years I had trained 90% at the gym and 10% at home. Now with 3 kids its the opposite: 90% at home and 10% (if I’m being generous) at the gym.

I decided to do the Open for the very reason I’ve done it every other year: to test my fitness against hundreds of thousands of others, and to see how my first year of at home training and programming has worked.

Time for one of my last home workouts before the first workout of the Open:

For Time:
75 Wall Balls (15 lb ball, 9 ft target)
35 Burpees

Then, 6-9-12-15
Chest to rings Pull-ups
Handstand Push-up
Kettlebell Front Squats (1 pood)

Score: 17:44
