“CrossFit Games Open Event 18.1”
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 20 minutes of:
10 Single-Arm Dumbbell Hang Clean & Jerks (50/35 lbs) (5 each arm)
14/12 Calorie Row
Today we are re-testing the first event of last year’s CrossFit Open. The goal is to hit this with full effort and compare your results with your performance last year. Hopefully you will learn that you are a better, more well-rounded athlete this year due to the hard work and consistency with which you trained the past 10+ months. Knowing before the Open starts that you are a better athlete than you were previously will build your confidence and motivate you to continue the behaviors and activities that led to your progress. If your re-test doesn’t go as well as you’d like, it’s an opportunity to assess where in your lifestyle or training you can make improvements to see the progress you would have liked to see. We will soon have the chance to establish a new baseline with the 2019 Open, and we can work on establishing new goals to improve upon that baseline instead of belaboring your shortcomings of the previous year.
