  • There are only 1-2 heavy workouts during the Open
  • There will be dumbbells in at least one workout
  • Often, there is no place to hide, you will suffer a lot

1) The Open WODs from last years

One of my things to do before the Open is to repeat the WODs from last years, especially the ones I am the most scared of. Here are my TOP 6 of The CrossFit Games Open workouts that I love to repeat.
By the way, if you are lucky you may repeat the WOD that will be announced this year.

Open 17.5
10 Rounds of

9 Thrusters 95/65 lbs
35 DUs

 

2) Aerobic Capacity Interval Workouts

Almost all workouts in the Open requires a lot of aerobic capacity, and the aerobic capacity interval workouts will help you improve that. These workouts are one of the best ways to learn how to breathe and maintain your heart rate during the workouts of any length. If you are doing these workouts on a weekly basis, you probably know what I am talking about, and if you are just starting with them, you will see a lot of improvements in only a few weeks.
As the Open is very close, try to do them 2 times a week instead of resting days. You can either run, row or bike (also Assault and other bikes).
  • SPRINT = As fast as you can, all out, adjust the speed to the length of the sprint
  • ON = Breath hard but be able to manage the pace through the workout (don’t start too fast)
  • RECOVERY = Keep moving but recover (e.g., jog)
  • OFF = Just stop

 

10 Rounds of

2 Min ON

3 Min RECOVERY
* Great on Assault Bike

 

3) CrossFit WODs that everyone is avoiding

Thrusters, burpees, wall balls, row, etc.

Ok, I don’t know if really everyone is avoiding these movements, but if you make a WOD froma combination of these movements, you surely know that it is going to hurt and that your heart rate will be off the charts.
“Burpees, again? Why?” I don’t even remember how often I hear that if I show WOD which has +50 burpees to my class. Why burpees (and other unpopular movements)? Because they are one of the most effective movements used in the CrossFit, it is crazy, how more intensive WOD can be if burpees are added.
Workouts in the Open are usually very intensive, and you can quickly get used to that level of intensity if you stop avoiding those “unpopular” movements.
Here are a few WODs that you should be scared of, especially, if you know how to push the pace in the WOD.

10 Rounds of

9 Deadlifts 225/155 lbs
9 Burpees

3 Rounds of

21 Wall Balls 20/14 lbs
15 Burpees
9 Thrusters 95/65 lbs

7 Rounds of

7 Thrusters 75/55 lbs
7 Burpees
7 Box Jumps 24/20″

 

12 Min AMRAP

15 cal Row
30 Wall Balls 20/14 lbs
60 DUs

For Time

2K Row
50 Rower Facing Burpees

For Time

50 Wall Balls 20/14 lbs
50 Burpees
50 Wall Balls 20/14 lbs

 

4) Bar/Ring Gymnastics

Chest-to-Bar Pull Ups, Toes-to-Bars, Ring/Bar Muscle Ups

According to the last years, there were always at least two workouts that involve bar/ring gymnastic movements. We also don’t get regular pull ups but only chest-to-bar pull ups or muscle ups, probably because they are easier to judge. If you are bad at these movements, there is still little time to improve the technique and get used to them.
Pro tip: If you suck at these movements (as I did), split them as much as you can. For example, if WOD has 10 Muscle Ups, do 3+3+2+2 (even if you can do 10 unbroken in the first round) or if WOD has 15 C2B Pull Ups, just do 5 sets of 3. Your arms will thank you during later rounds.
Here are a few workouts that should help you to get used to these movements.

9 Min AMRAP

10 Hang Squat Cleans 135/95 lbs
10 C2B Pull Ups

For Time 10-8-6-4-2

CrossFit Workout (WOD)

If you have never done CrossFit you probably wonder what is the WOD? The WOD stands for Workout Of the Day.

How to use this list?

You already know what is the WOD, so just pick one random WOD from the list and do it as your workout of the day. For most people only one WOD performed at high intensity is really enough. If you still feel fresh after you have finished a WOD, you have probably A) done it too slowly = low intensity, so try to go faster next time or B) you are doing CrossFit for a few years, in this case just pick as many WODs as you need to have a good workout!

Types of the WODs

There are 3 basic types of the CrossFit workouts:
  • AMRAP

    As Many Rounds/Reps As Possible

    You have set time limit, for example, 20 min AMRAP is a 20 min workout and your goal is to repeat the workout for that time and try to finish as many reps and/or rounds as possible.

  • RFT and For Time

    Rounds For Time

    Both these workouts are for time. Your goal is to finish them as fast as possible. For time workout is just 1 timed round while RFT is multiple rounds for time. The workout ends when you finish all the reps.
  • EMOM

    Every Minute On The Minute

    The EMOM is special kind of the workout where your goal is to do a set work at the start of each interval. It is a habit that if the WOD is just EMOM that it is 60 second interval and if interval should be different then it is specified in the workout.
    EMOM workouts are here to help you practice the movements or to learn how to push the pace. If the EMOM is too hard, just decrease the reps.
    If you want to learn more about EMOMs, check out my other article 222 EMOM WODs for Beginners


Movement Demos

If you are not sure how some of the movements look like, you may want to check out my demo videos where you can find out how all the bodyweight movements used in this list looks like. The most movements are very common like burpees, push ups or air squats but I have included a few that you have probably didn’t saw before like tuck jumps or jump overs, both these movements doesn’t required any equipment and creates high power output so your workout will be highly intensive even without equipment.
