Today is another great example of the brilliant CrossFit Games Open programming mind of Dave Castro. While some of you might be discouraged by the inclusion of the muscle ups, don't worry. When I did this workout in 2014, I got through only 10 reps of the power cleans. That's what makes this workout so brilliant and brutal. You are limited by time and of course skill.
If you don't have toes-to-bar, no worries! You still get a score of 60 from the row, then you can scale to knees to elbows or hanging knee raises.
The Open is a great test or your mental and physical fitness. We will be forming Intramural Teams for the 2017 CrossFit Games Open. Each team competes for points and bragging rights. We will divide up participants evenly amongst two teams. Here's the points breakdown.
1 point - Register for the 2017 CrossFit Games Open
