100 Dumbbell hang clean thrusters (x 25lbs) at the top of each minute do 5 burpees.
Score: 13:45 RX
No better workout comes to mind with limited equipment and time. All you need is a set of dumbells and some determination to finish. Hotel hell is simple but painful. Start with 5 burpees and complete as many hang clean thrusters in one minute.
My strategy was simple, I wanted to be done in under 14 minutes so I did 2 sets of 8 and 12 sets of 7 HCT. This had me on my back at the end of the workout but it was deffinilty manageable. I was able to rest 20-15 seconds per round which was enough to keep me going until the end.
Workout #3 of the 2019 CrossFit Open introduced a new movement; strict handstand push-ups. I’m normally thrilled to have a gymnastics movement in the mix but these are my least favorite.
Let’s break down this workout, Dumbbell overhead walking lunges are just awkward and slow, I switched arms every 25ft which kept me moving. Dumbbell box step ups were not horrible besides the first 10, transitioning from the lungs to a weighted step-up was painful at first but my legs came around.
It was all about finishing the lunges and step ups as fast as I could to give myself as much time as possible on the wall. I completed 20 HSPU in 3:45 with several no reps. To be honest it was the goal I set in my head before starting the workout. looking back at my form, I could have moved my hands 3 inches off the wall, this would have prevented me from falling off as much as I did. Guess I will need to rest the workout another time.
