Next Wednesday’s CrossFit Games Open WOD

07 Apr

Next Wednesday’s evening WOD will be this week’s Games WOD  to give you a chance to try it.

Have a read of the WOD information below, and visit the Games site for an overview of the movement standard

Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 5 minutes of:

  • Squat clean (75kg for men/ 50kg for women)
  • Jerk (75kg for men/ 50kg for women)

In this movement, the barbell goes from ground to overhead with the athlete passing through a full squat position while the barbell is racked on the shoulders. This can be a full-squat-clean-thruster, a power-clean-front-squat-split-jerk, or anything in between as long as the three key positions are reached. The barbell begins on the ground. Touch and go is permitted. No bouncing. The athlete must pass through a full squat with hips below knees. The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the heels.

  1. There’s no way I could get that to my shoulder! Eek indeed!

    Still only another 12 months and my weight will go done to 35KG!
    Mine you I can’t currently get that to my shoulder either – still it feels a much more reasonable target!
