Open Workout 18.4 announcement happens tonight at 8:00pm EST. Go to: games.crossfit.com to check it out if you'd like!
I will update this blog post once we understand the workout and I can formulate a plan for the day!
18.1 - 18.3 in the books! Looking forward to seeing as many of you as we can tonight (Friday @ 5:30pm) at our annual Friday Night Lights event to celebrate everyone's achievements in the 2018 Open! Even if you're performing the workout in an earlier class, we hope to see you later on to cheer everyone along!
Well this is interesting...haha! My, personal, initial reaction is I'M STOKED for handstand walks! Should be fun. And funny that Mike Demers chose to show off his capabilities, perhaps foreshadowing the movement!
For most of us however, it appears that you have a few choices to decide between:
A) Go through the workout as prescribed and try to PR your Diane time, and then work hard through those heavy deadlifts one at a time and get as far as you can in the second portion of the workout. If you happen to have handstand walks, then you'll have to work like hell to get a chance to show them off! Be sure to review the standards of all of these tricky movements.
B) Go through the workout scaled and crush it. Hand release push ups are still quite challenging for a lot of people and will be a good test. Be aware of the bear crawl standards.
C) If you're not officially signed up in the Open this year, then feel free to do a combination of whatever you think is going to give a heck of a workout in 9 minutes! Box HSPU, Deadlifts at whatever weight you feel is appropriate, Handstand Walks or Bear Crawls, etc.
