“CrossFit Open 18.2”

For Time:


Dumbbell Squats (pair of 50/35)

Bar-Facing Burpees


Time Cap: 12 minutes

Video courtesy of The CrossFit Games.  Our journey through past Opens takes us to 2018 this week. Prior to starting the workout, the athlete will need to set up a barbell, with standard plates, to jump over during the burpees. This workout begins with the dumbbells resting on the floor and the athlete standing tall. After the call of “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete may lift the dumbbells to the shoulders and perform 1 squat. The athlete will then return the dumbbells to the floor and complete 1 bar-facing burpee. He or she will then complete 2 dumbbell squats and 2 bar-facing burpees, 3 and 3, etc. This portion of the workout is over when the athlete lands with two feet on the opposite side of the barbell after the final burpee, or when the clock reaches 12 minutes. NOTE: we will NOT do 18.2A, since we have our 1RM Clean& Jerk coming up later this week

Bar Facing Burpee -> Bar Facing Burpee, step over bar (instead of hop)
