WOD:

“CROSSFIT OPEN 14.1”

10 Min AMRAP:

30 Double Unders

15 Power Snatches (75/55)

Video courtesy of the CrossFit Games.  Our journey back through the Open WODs takes us to the 2014 Open this week.  This classic couplet is meant to be done at a good, fast pace.  That said, don’t turn the power snatches into stiff-leg deadlifts into muscle snatches.  Use the legs in this movement and keep the back flat, chest up.

 

Scaling Options:

Bar weight -> 65/45 -> as needed

Double unders -> 75 Single unders per round

 

Cool Down:

Calf Stretch in Downward Dog – 1 Min
