Headcoach Ramon Gysin sums up the numbers, what, why and how of Open WOD 16.3:

Again a new movement. Dave Castro was making this one really exciting. At the announcement show he demonstrated the movements himself. Only a small group inside the HQ knows the WOD beforehand. At the time of the announcement he was hosting a party at our friends Box in Milano, Reebok CrossFit Officine. After demonstrating the snatches he then walked over to the rig and pointed to the rings, but then performed Bar Muscle-Ups instead. A nice twist.

Many people struggled with the grip and their ability to perform a Bar Muscle-Up when already tired and gassed and the Leaderboard was shuffled around quite a bit.

What I really liked, that many people, not only at our box, but world wide, got their first bar muscle up. We also had some athletes getting their first bar muscle up and then many more. That’s what we preach beforehand, the Opens really push and motivate people and many perform beyond their imagination. Great stuff.
