The first of the five workouts in the 2020 CrossFit Open is announced to the public. Athletes will face burpees and barbells.
Full workout details and scorecard available at https://games.crossfit.com/.
According to Games.CrossFit.com
Prior to starting the workout, the athlete will need to set up a barbell, with standard plates, to jump over during the burpees. This workout begins with the barbell on the floor and the athlete standing tall. After the call of “3, 2, 1… go,” the athlete may pick up the barbell and perform 8 ground-to-overheads then 10 bar-facing burpees for 10 rounds.
The athlete’s score will be the total time it takes to complete the entire workout or the total number of repetitions completed before the 15-minute time cap.
There is no tiebreak for this workout.
- Standard bumper plates (18-inch diameter) to load barbell for burpee
- Collars to secure the plates on the barbell
- Plates to load to the appropriate weight for your division*
Athletes have a choice to get the bar overhead – snatch or clean and jerk as long as they lock out properly at the top.
