CrossFit Open Workout 18.3 Movement Standards

NOTES

This workout begins with the barbell and dumbbell on the floor, and the athlete standing tall with a jump rope in hand. After the call of “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete will have 14 minutes to complete
2 rounds of 100 double-unders, 20 overhead squats, 100 doubleunders, 12 ring muscle-ups, 100 double-unders, 20 dumbbell snatches, 100 double-unders and 12 bar muscle-ups.

This workout is over when the athlete completes all the required work prior to 14 minutes or the 14-minute time cap expires. The athlete’s score is the time it takes to complete the workout or the number of repetitions completed up to the cutoff time.

TIEBREAK

This workout includes a tiebreak. If all 928 reps are completed prior to the 14-minute time cap, your score will be your total time, and there will be no tiebreaker. However, if you are not able
to complete the entire workout in the allotted time, a tiebreaker will be factored into your final score. During the workout, be sure to note your time at the end of every set of 100 double-unders.

When you submit your score, there will be a space for your final rep count and an additional field for you to enter the elapsed time at which you completed your last full set of double-unders.

In the case where two athletes have the same score (total number of reps), the athlete with the lower tiebreak time will be ranked higher.

Note: All tiebreak times must be reported in elapsed time, not in time remaining. If you are using a countdown timer, you must convert to elapsed time before reporting your score. For this reason, it is recommended you set your clock to count up.

WHAT IS THE CROSSFIT OPEN?

While we hit benchmark workouts at our affiliates throughout the year (1-rep-max back squat, 1-rep-max snatch, Fran, Cindy), the CrossFit Games Open is the time to see how we perform compared to other CrossFitters around the world.

The Open is comprised of five workouts over five weeks. Open workouts are identified by their year and the order in which they appear. The workouts will be released every Thursday during the five weeks of the Open, and you can watch the live announcement of the workout that will be streamed on the CrossFit Games website.

The announcement will take place at a different location each week, and two athletes (or more) will perform the workout live. After the workout is released, any athlete who has registered for the Open will have until 5 p.m. PT on the following Monday to submit their best score online.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE CROSSFIT OPEN?

The Open is the first qualifying stage of the CrossFit Games. Any athlete who wants to compete at the Games must first make it through the Open in their region.

While the purpose of the Open is to find the fittest athletes in each region to move on to the regionals, it’s also an opportunity for any athlete at any level to participate in the competition. It can add meaning and purpose to your training while also bringing your gym’s community closer together. (As a rule of thumb, the Open is the time of year where we see many people achieve important firsts: bodyweight snatch, muscle-ups, toes-to-bars, handstand push-ups, double-unders, etc.)

Most importantly, the Open will also give you some interesting data on your performance in the gym, which can be a guide for setting realistic goals for the following year.
