Open Workout 18.2

Thursdaynight/ Fridaymorning, February 2nd 2018, the second WOD of the CrossFit Games Open 2018 was released.

Headcoach Ramon Gysin about 18.2

18.1 tested the aerobic system. 18.2 was short and fast. In the first half transitions mattered. Going from one movement to the other without loosing time in the transition. In the later rounds you needed the guts to keep executing the movements as fast as possible.
18.2a was right in our wheelhouse. I placed 6th in the region and our team as well. The team is now sitting in 17th position, close to a qualifying spot. We keep going.

Workout 18.2:

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 reps for time of:
Dumbbell squats
Bar-facing burpees

Women use 35-lb. dumbbells | Men use 50-lb dumbbells

Workout 18.2a

1-rep-max clean

Time cap: 12 minutes to complete 18.2 AND 18.2a

Men use 50-lb. dumbbells, women use 35-lb. dumbbells
