CrossFit Games Open Event 18.1
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 20 minutes of:
8 Toes-to-Bar
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.

Want a fun warm-up or cool down? Join in our weekly Invictus Challenge!

A. Clean and Jerk-worked up to a single of 195
B. 8 T2B/(35lb)/14-6 rounds+4

Pretty new to T2B so those slowed me down a lot.

A. 18.1 using my 35# KB.
9 rounds + 19 reps
This one went well for me. The 35 was fairly light and wish I had some 45s to spice it up a bit!.. kept T2B ub throughout.

Friday challenge. 15cal,C2B. Score was 24. Could of used a little dalton 2k power on this one!
