CrossFit Games Open 2019 // RECAP

It’s done! Once again.

The CrossFit Open: every year, these five weeks stir up mixed emotions. A cocktail of expectancy, high hopes, impatience and joy mixed with apprehension, respect and maybe a pinch of fear.

The Open 2019 ended with 19.5. A nasty WOD witch included 105 thrusters and 105 chest to bar pull ups!

33-27-21-15-9 reps for time of:
95-lb. thrusters
Chest-to-bar pull-ups

Time cap: 20 minutes

Looks simple and „easy“ but it was a real mindf**k. A nice grueling finisher after 5 weeks of pure CrossFit. „Constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity.“

Some people are happy that it’s over. Sleepless Thursday-nights before the workout-announcement. The fear for Burpees and Thrusters…sore muscles and pain faces all over the place.

But as tough it was, it was also a great time to grow as a person and as a community. We had 106 CFBS/Downtown-Athletes who signed up for the Open 2019! Great work peeps! The team spirit was awesome and it was beautiful to see how you guys are helping each other out by cheering and offering support. That’s what those times are about. Growing stronger – physically and physiologically as a human.

This year the Open showed the direction of how the sport is developing. Weights and skills are getting „heavier“. The first time in history we saw a strict movement at the Open! More people chose the scaled variation. But that’s not a bad thing. It’s just an option to make the experience possible for more people. It is also showing us that almost nothing is impossible and that there’s always a way to improve and „get better than yesterday“.

Now some numbers and final performance analysis:

CFBS-CFBS Downtown Top Ten Leaderboard:

FINAL standings of CrossFit Basel and CrossFit Basel Downtowns internal Open competition:

Team Fight Clap secured the victory but the rest is very close together! Congrats to Team Fight Clap and their captains Linda Bräutigam and Lena Gebhart!

THANK YOU!

Now it’s time to say thank you to everyone who was involved and helped to make all this possible.

Fist I want to thank the Team Captains. You managed your team, where there if needed, ordered and designed shirts, answered thousands of questions and organized some team events outside of the box! 

Thanks for your effort Lani Messner, Jolanda Holzherr, Tabea Jandt, Linda Bräutigam, Lena Gebhart and Francis Fink. Without you the Open like we know it wouldn’t be possible!

Next are our photographers Lucie Pfändler and G-Jay. They came late at night or at the weekend to the box to capture these magical moments at the box. Maybe they captured someone’s first muscle up, outstanding performance or just some pain faces. Still, we are very grateful that you were there and took these cool pictures.

At the last Saturday, we had CrossFit DACH visiting us. Thanks a lot to Marcus Mcclain for coming over, do a lifestream on crossfitdeutschland Instagram account, bring some shirts and meat for the party later! In this manner, I want to thank Bejtula Jasari as well. He organized some or rather a lot of beverages for the party!

We must not forget the coaches. They did a lot of overtime in these 5 weeks, had to manage the special classes on Friday, answered all the questions about the Open and still had to perform when they did the WOD themselves. Thanks a lot for your extra effort over this exhausting time!

Last but not least we want to thank everyone who participated in this years CrossFit Games Open. It doesn’t matter if you are a veteran, master, teen or first-timer, all of you have done your best and earned the title of a survivor of the Open! It was every single time a pleasure to come to the box and see each of you perform, struggle or succeed. The atmosphere over this time is different and breathtaking. So much energy, support, laughter, sweat in one place – that’s just great!

I’m really looking forward to the next CrossFit Games Open which takes place in October already. Now it’s time to recover and get back into training as soon as possible. There is no time to waste. Take the energy from the Open with you into every single CrossFit Class and try to become the best version of you.

Foundation is key!

Coach Marco

——————————————————————————————————————–

Some „deep thoughts“ at the end:

The Open are always my favorite time of the year, when we live and breath CrossFit. The Open’s essence is the community and high intensity. The simple beauty of CrossFit. 

Teaching CrossFit at Trainer Courses we would always joke, that in a globo gym nobody would cheer at you doing bicep curls. And it’s true. During the Open so many new personal bests get achieved because of the support of others. People cross barriers, become better athletes, overcome weaknesses and perform well over their expectations simply because the crowd is cheering them to do so. The Open is a catalyst of the possible. People doing things they thought are not possible for them, mentally as well as physically. Hard work pays off. 

Personally, I love the thrill of the Open workouts, the set-up, the late night nervosity. I love to do the workouts in one of the official heats with other members. Bit of shit talk here and there. But I also want to perform well and I will go well beyond my comfort zone, something I would not do so well being alone with a judge.

I want to thank all participants and the captains, Marco and all the coaches for their help, their support but also for their great effort. It was a fantastic five weeks!

Stay strong and keep going. 

Headcoach Ramon

Thanks to Marco who was in charge of the event, thanks to all volunteers for their hard work, thanks to the judges and my fellow SDFPF comitee, congrats to all fellow athletes, we spent a great day of lifting together.

The youngest athlete was 15, the oldest 79. Everybody can compete in Powerlifting. Strength Training is important for Health and the Sport of Powerlifting is all about showing control over the loads you move, the rules are very strict. Try it! Lifting weights is not dangerous, not doing anything IS dangerous.

“No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.”—Socrates

“Don’t cheat the world of your contribution. Give it what you’ve got.” —Steven Pressfield

Body, mind and soul, all needs to be in balance. To function, the body needs some sort of resistance training, otherwise muscles will become weak, you are more vulnerable. A fit body gives me more options. And a fit body is necessary for a fit mind. So I strongly believe in being fit to be able to contribute more AND LONGER.  Happy lifting!“

What is Powerlifting?

Every athlete has three attempts in the following three exercises (Powerlifts). The total of the best lifts count towards the total.

Backsquat:

275.5kg Backsquat 2 – Ramon Gysin @99.3kg – Powerlifting WC (WDFPF) 2014 Chisinau Moldova from CrossFit Basel on Vimeo.

Bench Press:

170kg Bench Press 3 – Ramon Gysin @99.3kg – Powerlifting WC (WDFPF) 2014 Chisinau Moldova from CrossFit Basel on Vimeo.

Deadlift:

WR 207.5kg Deadlift 3 – Nora Jäggi @74.3kg – Powerlifting WC (WDFPF) 2014 Chisinau Moldova from CrossFit Basel on Vimeo.

You can also compete in Single Lift Competitions where you choose to compete in one, two, or all three lifts, but get ranked separately in each lift.

There are raw competitions where only a belt is allowed and there are equipped competitions (single ply => one layer of suits/equipment and multi ply => several layers of equipment) where athletes wear assistant suits, briefs and knee wraps to be able to lift much more weight.

Team CrossFit Basel is competing raw.

What is the WDFPF?

The World Drug Free Powerlifting Federation was established to give drug free lifters a home as in most strength sports there is no or little drug testing. In fact there is no other sports federation (including ALL olympic sports!) in the world today that knows such severe punishment like the WDFPF. If an athlete is tested positive he or she will be banned FOR LIFE and all past results will be erased.

The WDFPF is also an inclusive federation, all athletes, no matter what age, are competing at the same venue at the same competition together, ranked in their respective weight and age classes.

Open Workout 19.2

19.2 was a repeater of 16.2, so some knew the struggle already.

Did you improve your score?

Workout 19.2

Beginning on an 8-minute clock, complete as many reps as possible of:
25 toes-to-bars
50 double-unders
15 squat cleans, 135 lb.
25 toes-to-bars

If completed before 8 minutes, add 4 minutes to the clock and proceed to:

50 double-unders
11 squat cleans, 225 lb.
If completed before 12 minutes, add 4 minutes to the clock and proceed to:
25 toes-to-bars

The combination of weightlifting and gymnastics offered something for everyone. Some had trouble with the double-unders or the toes-to-bar, others with the heavy lifts. So everyone has still room for improvement.

REEBOK CROSSFIT GAMES OPEN 2019 19.1

Open Workout 19.1

Thursday night/ Friday night, February the 22nd 2019, the first WOD of the CrossFit Games Open was released. Some woke up at night to check their phones but everyone was excited to see what’s going on.

And there it was: …

Workout 19.1

15min AMRAP

  • 19 WB
  • 19cal row

Men 20lb ball / 10 feed target
Women 14lb ball / 9 feet target

All details here.

Looks quite easy but it was a real sucker. 

I would like to quote Ramons‘ words about the Open:

One year ago I already wrote:

„First week down. The box is literally vibrating. Five weeks in which everyone is nervous and the air is full of tension.

I love the opens and I hate it as well. I love it, because people seem to be more alive. They want to achieve something – they have goals they want to reach, they compete against each other. I love to see their smiles if they did much better than expected.

I also love to see their fear cause I know this experience will teach them a lesson in life as well.

I hate it (sarcasm right there ;)) because it is extremely time-consuming and it’s hardly possible to get any other work done during these five weeks. Our team invests plenty of extra time and effort to make this happen for you!“

Well, this did not really change! It’s one of my favorite times of the year, people are alive, they share their success, they suffer together, workout together, have fun together!

105 athletes registered for our two boxes! Not as much as last year but still amazing!

After that nice suckfest the overall CFBS-Top-Ten-leaderboard looks like this:

CFHQ seems to have some IT-troubles and so not everybody was able to submit a score.

Our top male Athlete, David Dieterle, aka DIDI, aka DIDI Sorglos, is sitting in the 48th place overall in Switzerland – congratulations to this outstanding performance!

On the female side, we have Lani Messner sitting in the outstanding 16th place overall in Switzerland! Keep pushing it to the limit Lani.

The Top 3 male at CrossFit Basel and CFBaselDowntown are:

The Top 3 female at CrossFit Basel and CFBaselDowntown are:

Also congratulations to all the first timer, who did their first CrossFit Open Workout! You did great and I hope it was at least a little bit of fun.

Current standings of CrossFit Basel and CrossFit Basel Downtowns internal Open competition:

Very close! YAY Burpees in first place with the best Spirit. Huge mutual support and the first Team with a mascot. In the following picture, it shows the emotional state after 19.1.

Do not forget, it is about to work out together and have FUN!

Let’s see what next! 19.2 is near.

„The event was very well organised and I am very happy with the performance of our team, they did a great job. Plenty of personal bests being achieved. Thanks to all volunteers and the judges and congrats to all fellow athletes!

We are made to move. Hence this is what I try to do every day. The other magic trick I use is the following: Don’t do stupid shit! If you think you will get hurt, don’t do it. If you don’t know HOW to do it, ask somebody who knows or, if you are smart enough to distinguish good advice from bad advice, watch videos on youtube or use google. If you are in pain, do something, don’t ignore it. Find out, what it is. Heal. Train around the pain, come back, get stronger and fitter. Keep going and never stop. Just don’t stop. Don’t even think about.

“Don’t cheat the world of your contribution. Give it what you’ve got.” —Steven Pressfield

Body, mind and soul, all needs to be in balance. To function, the body needs some sort of resistance training, otherwise muscles will become weak, you are more vulnerable. It’s like taking care of your car. So far as I know, I got one body and can’t renew my leasing every 4 years and get a new one. So I try to keep an eye on it. It carries my brain and my soul. A fit body gives me more options. And a fit body is necessary for a fit mind. So I strongly believe in being fit to be able to contribute more AND LONGER.  Happy lifting!“

What is Powerlifting?

Every athlete has three attempts in the following three exercises (Powerlifts). The total of the best lifts count towards the total.

Backsquat:

275.5kg Backsquat 2 – Ramon Gysin @99.3kg – Powerlifting WC (WDFPF) 2014 Chisinau Moldova from CrossFit Basel on Vimeo.

Bench Press:

170kg Bench Press 3 – Ramon Gysin @99.3kg – Powerlifting WC (WDFPF) 2014 Chisinau Moldova from CrossFit Basel on Vimeo.

Deadlift:

WR 207.5kg Deadlift 3 – Nora Jäggi @74.3kg – Powerlifting WC (WDFPF) 2014 Chisinau Moldova from CrossFit Basel on Vimeo.

You can also compete in Single Lift Competitions where you choose to compete in one, two, or all three lifts, but get ranked separately in each lift.

There are raw competitions where only a belt is allowed and there are equipped competitions (single ply => one layer of suits/equipment and multi ply => several layers of equipment) where athletes wear assistant suits, briefs and knee wraps to be able to lift much more weight.

Team CrossFit Basel is competing raw.

What is the WDFPF?

The World Drug Free Powerlifting Federation was established to give drug free lifters a home as in most strength sports there is no or little drug testing. In fact there is no other sports federation (including ALL olympic sports!) in the world today that knows such severe punishment like the WDFPF. If an athlete is tested positive he or she will be banned FOR LIFE and all past results will be erased.

The WDFPF is also an inclusive federation, all athletes, no matter what age, are competing at the same venue at the same competition together, ranked in their respective weight and age classes.
