The CrossFit Games begins this weekend! Watch the new owner/CEO of CrossFit take on the first workout of the Games. Read this article if you’d like to find out some details about how this year’s Games are going to take place within the current environment. Perhaps more importantly: HERE IS HOW TO WATCH
Thursday’s WOD at 7 and 9am, and again at 4 and 5pm.
20 min AMRAP:
80 KB Swings (24/18kg)
60 Wt Box Step-ups (24/18kg)
20 Handstand Push-ups
Is it a chipper? Is it an AMRAP? That’s easy, it’s an AMRAP that feels a bit like a long chipper. Today the sets are big and will require some breaking up. That’s not to sway anyone from going heavy! If there was any day to accidentally go on the heavy side, it’s today. Have a plan going into the workout. You can always adjust that plan! Pick a KB you can swing USA at least 20 reps unbroken. You’ll use that same load for the step-ups, and yes, you’ll need to break these up into smaller sets as well. The sit-ups will be a breeze after all that KB work! Lastly (well, lastly if it was a chipper!) you have 20 handstand push-ups. These will be tough, especially after all those reps, but if you can do a few in a row, go for it today! If you need a scaling, you’ll likely be doing down dog push-ups 🙂 Check the clock after your 20 HSPU, you might have a few minutes to get back into the swings and, dare I say, the step-ups?!
