The CrossFit Open starts tomorrow. A five week online competition that is the first step to the CrossFit Games. Around a quarter of a million people enter it. For most of us it's just a chance to see how far we have progressed since the last open and work on our weaknesses.

First workout of the CrossFit Open is:

10 rounds for time of:
8 ground-to-overheads, 95 lb.
10 bar-facing burpees

Time cap: 15 minutes

Quite happy about this one. Ground to overhead and burpees are two of my strengths so should do quite well at this one.

2nd workout of the CrossFit Open is:

Complete as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of:
4 dumbbell thrusters
6 toes-to-bars
24 double-unders

50/35 lb. dumbbells

This will be an interesting one for me. Dumbbell thrusters will be ok, if slightly heavy. Slow and steady on those. Toes-to-bars are a strength of mine so this is the part I will need to put my foot down. I struggle a bit with double unders. But only 24 each time should make them manageable.

Haven't checked in since week 1, but I've now completed this open. I haven't been doing much crossfit the past couple of months, so I'm generally pretty happy with how this has gone for me.

20.1 - Finished 14.27 - 89th percentile
20.2 - 447 reps - 65th percentile. This was a terrible one for me, I ripped my hand early on and then struggled with the t2b. Probably a result of my hands not being gymnastics conditioned with a couple months off.
20.3 - 93 reps - 79th percentile. A huge improvement on the last time this was a workout. Got a few reps onto the heavy bar. I don't think I got past the 15 HSPU's last time.
20.4 - 149 reps - 59th percentile. This one annoyed me that it was my worst result, since barbell work/barbell cycling is probably my strongest area. I've never done a pistol squat before this workout. Took me ages to get one during the workout. It wasn't until about 10 reps in and 19 mins on the clock that they actually started to flow. If I was ever going to repeat a workout, this would be it. I know I can move that 100kg barbell and that would've really elevated me. That said, I'm a glass half full person these days and leaderboard doesn't bother me, so I reflect back and proud that I've acquired a new skill.
20.5 - 222 reps - 80th percentile. Loved this workout. Haven't done any MU's since the last open, so very happy to get through 22.

Been a huge fan of this open.
