Headcoach Ramon Gysin sums up the numbers, what, why and how of Open WOD 16.2:

Yes, Toes to bars (many), Double Unders and Squat Cleans. Aaaaand a flow, that looks familiar:

This workout was about pacing your ability in either one of the movements, mainly Toes to bars and Squat Cleans. Find the optimal pace for the Toes to Bar or the Squat Cleans. Get through the Double Unders quick. Try to survive one challenging round and give it your all in the last four minutes. Ending far in the Squat cleans in your final round, that hurt. But so it is.

From my own perspective it was a very painful workout, heck, I did it twice. Stupid me.
