CrossFit Open WOD 11.1 or 14.1

Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 10 minutes of:

30 Double Unders

15 Power Snatches (75/55)


Compare to 20210128

Video courtesy of The CrossFit Games. Our trip back through past Opens returns us to a WOD we re-tested last January.  The one that started it all, 11.1 (which was repeated as 14.1).  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:

DUs -> 60 SUs

Bar weight -> 65/45 -> As needed

Cool Down:

Banded Shoulder Stretch – 1 Min per side


Calf stretch on rig  – 1 min per side
