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:

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

Like every year, there are no CrossFit Open without thrusters and chest to bar pull ups!
This year we had to manage 105 repetitions of each of them. Not an easy task. Only a few members were able to finish all this reps within the 20-minute time cap.

Congrats to everybody who was able to finish this WOD!

Open Workout 19.4

Our prayers were not answered! No Open without Burpees.
And not too few of them.
With the muscle ups or chin over bar pull-ups in the second part, the gymnastics skills were also required.

Did you make your first muscle up?

Some of you have made their first muscle up or even several of them.

Did you manage to do one or even more?

Workout 19.4

3 rounds of:
10 snatches
12 bar-facing burpees
Then, rest 3 minutes before continuing with:

REEBOK CROSSFIT GAMES OPEN 2019 19.3

Open Workout 19.3

With 19.3 we got a new movement in the open. The STRICT handstand push up.

50 dumbbell box step-ups
50 strict handstand push-ups

REEBOK CROSSFIT GAMES OPEN 2019 19.2

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
50 double-unders
13 squat cleans, 185 lb.
If completed before 8 minutes, add 4 minutes to the clock and proceed to:
25 toes-to-bars
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
50 double-unders
9 squat cleans, 275 lb.
If completed before 16 minutes, add 4 minutes to the clock and proceed to:
25 toes-to-bars
50 double-unders
7 squat cleans, 315 lb.

Stop at 20 minutes.

All details here.

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:

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.

GHCBB stark an der Schweizermeisterschaft

Our girls back on stage

GHCBB erfolgreich in Lausanne!

Am 2. September fand die Elite Schweizer Meisterschaft im Olympischen Gewichtheben statt. Das CrossFit Lausanne war der Schauplatz eines erfolgreichen Wettkampfes für den GHCBB.

Um sich für diesen Wettkampf zu qualifizieren muss man einerseits an zwei von den vier Ligarunden mitgemacht haben und in einer Runde ein Total von mindestens 140 Sinclair Punkten bei den Damen oder 225 Punkte bei den Herren erreichen.

Die Schweizermeisterschaft wird, wie bei einem internationalen Turnier, in verschiedenen Gewichtsklassen ausgetragen. Zwei Stunden vor Wettkampfbeginn wird abgewogen und der Athlet der in seiner Gewichtsklasse am meisten über den Kopf hebt gewinnt.

Die Bilanz am Ende des Tages wiederspiegelt die starken Leistungen der bisherigen Saison. Von den 11 angereisten Athleten erreichten 8 einen Podestplatz. Davon sind 5 Schweizermeister Titel.

Die Resultate in der Übersicht:

Gewichtsklasse -85kg:

Dieses Plateau war nichts für schwache Nerven.  Nach zwei ungültigen Versuchen konnte Tom doch noch seinen allerletzten Versuch im Reissen realisieren. Somit startete er mit einem 3kg Vorsprung in das Stossen. Dort lieferte er sich ein Kopf an Kopf Rennen mit Vasco Corti vom CrossFit Lugano. Handicapiert durch ein entzündetes Knie konnte Tom nicht seine stärksten Lifts abrufen.  Vasco konnte profitieren und stemmte in seinem letzten Versuch 139kg gültig über den Kopf. 4kg mehr als Tom und somit nur 1kg mehr im Total.

GHCBB successful in Lausanne!

Saturday the 2nd of September the Swiss Championship in Olympic Weightlifting took place in Lausanne. Another successful competition for the Basel Weightlifting Club.

To qualify for this meet on one side you have to participate in two rounds of the swiss league and post a total of not less than 140 (female) or 225 (male) sinclair points.

The scoring in the Elite Swiss Championship works the same way as international tournaments. The athletes are divided into different weight classes accordingly to their bodyweight. Two hours before the competiton starts you have to weigh in and the athlete who puts the most weight over his head wins his category.

The ranking list at the end of this day reflects the very strong performance of the previous season. Eight of the eleven athletes competing that day accomplish a podium spot. Five of them are swiss championship titles.

category -85kg:

This group was nothing for weak nerves. First Tom waited until his very last try to post a vaild snatch. He had a 3kg lead going into the Clean&Jerk over Vasco Corti from Lugano. The Clean and Jerk was a head to head race between these two. Vasco showed his best lifting game and put 139kg over his head. 4kg more than Tom who was handicaped by an inflammation in the knee and only one tiny kilogram more in the total. Congratulations to both of them for this outstanding performance.

#STCH2017 #Teamup #evenbigger

Das war das das diesjährige Motto – und es wurde erfüllt!

20170624_STC_Part2_521

Nach dem letztes Jahr schon 440 Teams dabei waren, waren nun an der schon achten Swiss Team CHallenge rund 499 Teams, also knapp 2000 CrossFit-Athleten, schweizweit gemeldet!

Davon 12 Firebreather und 30 Regular Teams die in unserer Box, CrossFit Basel antraten. Wir freuten uns auch dieses Jahr wieder über den Besuch von externen Teams und senden viele Grüsse an Reebok CrossFit Augsburg, CrossFit Ansbach, CrossFit Öuf, KSC Solothurn und CrossFit Lörrach! Großartig, dass ihr da wart!

Der Tag versprach im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes heiss zu werden! Um 8h startete die Registration und der erste Kaffee wurde an der Bar gezaubert. Nane Sele baute schon mal den Ofen für die hungrige Meute auf und um 9:30h konnten wir alle Teilnehmer und Zuschauer begrüssen. Die Aufregung vor dem ersten Event um 10h stieg langsam…

Event 1/WOD 1 & 2 war ein schöner Einstieg für eine Team-Competition. Absprache und Zusammenarbeit waren gefragt. Zwei Couplets bestehend aus Pull-up-Variationen und Thruster und Toes to bar/ Knee Raises und Power Cleans mussten aufgeteilt und abgearbeitet werden. Minütlich unterbrochen von 4 Synchronized Burpee over Box Jumps. Danach waren alle gut aufgewärmt und endgültig im Modus!

Event 2 bestand aus 5 separat gewerteten Teilen. Wod 3 war ein 3RM Thruster – gute Selbsteinschätzung und Krafteinteilung waren gefragt. Der beste Durchschnitt gewann. Bei CFBS waren das „Norbert & the Girls“. Nora, Benjamin, Basil und Manu bewegten jeweils 80, 85 und 95kg! In den weiteren vier Einheiten (Wod 4,5,6 & 7) wählte jedes Teammitglied einen Skill. Folgendes Übungs-Potpourri stand zur Auswahl: Max. reps Ring Muscle-ups (Firebreather) bzw. Toes to Rings (Regular- selbst für viele erfahrenere Firebreather noch neu!), L-Sit Hold, max. reps Pistols/ Wall Balls und max. reps Double Unders. Tiziano (Team Buns&Guns) z.B. schaffte ganze 165 DU’s innerhalb der 90 Sekunden!

Hier konnte jeder sein Bestes zeigen und geben!

Vor Event 3/WOD 8 & 9 wurden die bisherigen Ergebnisse ausgewertet und die letzten Heatlisten erstellt. Ausreichend Zeit um sich etwas in der Sonne zu entspannen, sich zu stärken und mit einem kalten Shake oder anderem Kaltgetränk an der Bar zu erfrischen. Bei dieser Gelegenheit ein fettes Dankeschön und Respekt an alle Helfer und Judges für die tolle Arbeit! Bereits zu diesem Zeitpunkt hattet ihr schon Grosses geleistet!

Für den letzten Streich wurde noch mal dick aufgefahren und gefühlt alles an Equipment parat gestellt! Die Wettkampffläche war voll und die Atmosphäre angespannt- jetzt konnte einiges an Punkten gesammelt werden! Der Zuschauer-Bereich füllte sich…um 16:30h startete der erste Heat seinen letzten grossen Einsatz.

20170624_STC_Part2_253

Ein Time Cap von 24 Minuten war gesetzt. Es galt möglichst viele Kalorien auf dem Rudergerät zu sammeln (WOD 9). Während ein Athlet („switch as you want“) permanent ruderte, musste vom restlichen Team folgendes Brett absolviert werden:

 

 

 

Das Geschrei und die Musik war laut, die Stimmung war bombig und danach sah es auch so aus. Als hätte eine Bombe eingeschlagen. Grosses Kino. Alle waren erschöpft aber zufrieden als auch das letzte Heat gegen 20:00 durch war.

Der Grill wurde angefacht, mit dem ersten kühlen Bier angestossen und die Halle für die Siegerehrung vorbereitet.

Wir sind stolz wie Oskar auf euch! Seid es auch! 🙂 Es war toll zu erleben, wie motiviert ihr seid und wie der Sport uns verbindet. Bleibt dran, habt Spass und es wird spannend sein, zu sehen, was wir noch alles gemeinsam erreichen können.

Man kann es nicht oft genug erwähnen: Ein grosses Dankeschön geht an die Organisatoren und das Team von CrossFit Basel und CrossFit Leman,  an die „Ganztageshelfer“ beim Scoring (Pedee und Nicole!), an der Registration (die 6 Engel für Sarah) , beim Auf- und Umbau (Helden der Arbeit Markus und Simon, Manu und Pascale) und allen (!) Judges – einfach an jeden Helfer für jeden noch so „kleinen“ Handschlag und geplanten oder spontanen Einsatz! An Jaz für die Unterhaltung. An unsere Sponsoren Canyon, foodspring und Chiefs (Danke Melsa!!) An Nane Sele und an Döne für die top Verpflegung und die Jungs und Mädels an der Bar. Last but not least natürlich auch an die starken Teams und an das fantastische Publikum!

Mit den persönlichen Worten von Ramon:

„Die Swiss Team CHallenge ist für mich der schönste Tag im Event-Kalender. CrossFit pur. Zusammen ein paar WODs machen, leiden, schwitzen, aber auch essen, lachen, trinken, feiern und zum Schluss zu gutem altem Eurodance tanzen.

Ich bedanke mich bei allen AthletInnen für den herausragenden Einsatz und hoffe, die von mir geplanten WODs haben euch Spass gemacht.

Community ist ein zentraler Aspekt im CrossFit und es stechen jene heraus, die sich aktiv beteiligen, mithelfen und somit Community  machen. Events dieser Grössenordnung benötigen mehrere Dutzend zumeist freiwillige HelferInnen. Allen HelferInnen gebührt ausserordentlicher Dank, euer Einsatz ist unverzichtbar!“

SWISS TEAM CHALLENGE 2017

#STCH2017 #Teamup #evenbigger

This year’s mottos were met on a grand scale!

This year’s competition represents the eighth manifestation of the Swiss Team CHallenge event. After last year’s 440 registered Teams, this year exceeded with a total of 499, meaning nearly 2000 CrossFit Athletes nationwide!

Our home box CrossFit Basel participated with 12 Firebreather and 30 Regular Teams. This year we were once again happy to welcome external teams to our box and send our salutes to Reebok CrossFit Augsburg, CrossFit Ansbach, CrossFit Öuf, KSC Solothurn and CrossFit Lörrach! It was a pleasure having you with us on this special occasion!

The day was sure to bring up the heat – literally! At 8 am registration welcomed athletes and the first coffees were already being distributed at the bar. Nane Sele was heating up the oven for the hungry crowds and at 9 am the organization committee was able to welcome participants and spectators. The excitement for the first event starting at 10 am began to rise…

Event 1 / WOD 1 & 2 was a good start for a Team-Competition. Internal agreement and collaboration was crucial. Two couples of pull-up variations with thrusters and toes to bar / knee raises with power cleans had to be split up and completed. Every minute the flow was interrupted by 4 synchronized burpee box jumps over. After this workout everyone was assured to be warmed up sufficiently and had definitely entered into competition-mood!

Event 2 was composed of 5 parts. WOD 3 was a 3RM Thruster – this required a solid self-assessment as well as a tactical sizing of ones’ strength. The highest mean of the entire team won. “Norbert & the Girls” dominated this WOD: Nora, Benjamin, Basil and Manu managed 80, 85 and 90kg, respectively! For the subsequent four parts of the event (WOD 4,5,6&7) each team member chose a skill. The following potpourri of movements were to be allocated: max. reps Ring Muscle-Ups (Firebreathers)/ max reps toes to rings (Regular), max L-sit hold, max reps Pistols / Wall Ball shots and max reps Double Unders. Tiziano (Team Buns&Guns) completed a total of 165 DU in the provided 90 seconds!

This event was an opportunity for everyone to give and show their best!

Before Event 3 / WOD 8 & 9 took place, the results of the previous workouts were utilized to establish the final heat list. This open time slot provided an opportunity to relax in the sun or refuel tired bodies with a cool shake from our bar. We take this occasion to send a big thank you to all our helpers, volunteers and judges! By this time already your performance was invaluable!

A grand finale was promised. Basically the entire box equipment was arranged on the floor for the final event. The competition floor was flooded and the atmosphere tense – this was an opportunity to collect valuable points. The spectators’ zone began to fill up… and at 5.30 pm the final heat started with a final effort.

A 24-minute Time Cap was set. The most amount of calories was to be collected on the rowing ergometer (WOD 9). While one athlete was continuously rowing (“switch as you want”), the other three of the team were to complete the following Mount Everest:

 

The cheering, screaming and music was shattering. The atmosphere had the literal impact of a bomb, and the aftermath was apparent. Great, great stuff. Every single athlete was exhausted but content when the final heat was done around 8 pm.

We are incredibly proud of you guys! We hope you are too! It was amazing to experience your joint motivation and the way in which sport manages to connect and bring us together. Stay at it and keep having fun. We can’t wait to find out what else we will achieve together.

We are not able to state it enough: a huge THANK YOU to the organization committee and the Teams from CrossFit Basel and CrossFit Leman as well as every single helper, for your planned or spontaneous commitment. It is hugely appreciated. Our thank you goes out to Jaz, for your impeccable entertainment, to our sponsors Canyon, foodspring and Chiefs (Thank you Melsa!). To Nane Sele and Döne for the catering and the girls and dudes at the bar. Last but not least, our thanks go out to the strong teams and the fantastic spectators!

We will like to conclude with a couple of personal words from Ramon:

“For me, the Swiss Team CHallenge is my favorite day in our event-calendar. Pure CrossFit. We fight through a couple of WODs together, suffer, sweat, but also eat, laugh, drink, party and conclude it all to some good old Eurodance.

I wish to thank all the athletes for their extraordinary dedication and hope that my WODs provided you with enjoyment and a challenge.

Community is a crucial aspect in CrossFit and the ones who are actively engaged by taking time to help out are the ones who stick out from the crowd. They are the ones who form Community. Events on this scale require a couple dozen, usually voluntary, helpers. Invaluable gratitude is due to all helpers, your work indispensable!”

 

To conclude the eventful day, the grill was heated up, the first cooled beer cans were raised and the box prepared for the award ceremony.

Swiss Team CHallenge 2017 @ CrossFit Basel

(English version below)

SUN’S OUT, GUNS OUT! Es ist wieder Zeit für unsere grosse Team CHallenge!

Am Samstag, 24. Juni 2017 findet zum achten Mal der grösste Team Wettkampf im deutschsprachigen Europa statt, die Swiss Team CHallenge (2016: 449 Teams/ 1796 athletes!). Der Anlass wird organisiert von CrossFit Basel und CrossFit Leman.

In allen CrossFit Boxen der ganzen Schweiz werden Teams gebildet, welche in zwei Kategorien (Regulars und Firebreathers) lokal in den jeweiligen Affiliates gegeneinander antreten. Die Resultate werden live online übertragen und ausgewertet. Die Teams bestehen aus vier Leuten, von welchen mindestens eine Frau und ein Mann dabei sein muss.

Die Teams messen sich in mehreren Events, welche vor der CHallenge bekannt gegeben werden. Zudem wird es – wie bereits in den vergangenen Jahren – wieder entsprechende Videos geben, worauf die Standards ersichtlich sind.

Die Workouts sind so kreiert, dass möglichst viele Athletinnen und Athleten egal (EGAL!) welchen Niveaus teilnehmen können. Die Athleten der Kategorie Firebreathers beherrschen 80% der vorgeschriebenen Übungen auf dem Whiteboard – die Regular Athleten absolvieren eine skalierte Version der Workouts. Also nochmal: ALLE können teilnehmen, alles was Ihr braucht ist ein Team und viel Motivation!

Die Swiss Team CHallenge ist der grösste Event in unserer Box und wir hoffen, dass sich dieses Ereignis niemand entgehen lässt! Es ist ein einmaliges Erlebnis, als WettkämpferIn dabei zu sein und mitzufiebern. Wir versprechen einen spektakulären Tag mit viel Schweiss, Urschreien, einer genialen CrossFit Community, Party und gutem Essen. Dabei sein ist ein MUSS!

Wer uns gerne als Helfer oder Judge unterstützen möchte, darf eine Mail an sarah@crossfitbasel.ch schreiben. Danke im Voraus!

Achtet auf die Plakate, die in der Box aushängen, auf welchen ihr euch und euer Team eintragen müsst.

Wir bieten Platz für 48 Teams – first come, first served.

Ausländische Teams nehmen auch dieses Jahr wieder (zum zweiten) Mal an der offiziellen, schweizweiten Wertung teil (sofern sie in einer Schweizer Box antreten) und können sich per Mail anmelden (siehe unten).

Die WODs und STANDARDS werden vor dem Wettkampf publiziert. Unter anderem findet ihr diese auf der offiziellen Facebookpage:

Zudem schreibt der Captain eine Mail an sarah@crossfitbasel.ch mit allen Namen der Athletinnen und Athleten, sowie deren T-Shirt-Grössen und Mailadressen.
