MOVEMENT STANDARDS FOR CROSSFIT OPEN WORKOUT 19.1

WALL BALLS

In the wall ball shot, the medicine ball must be taken from the bottom of a squat, hip crease below the knee, and thrown to hit the specified target.

The rep is credited when the centre of the ball hits the target at or above the specified target height. If the ball hits low or does not hit the wall, it is a ‘no-rep’. 

If the ball drops to the ground from the top, it cannot be caught off the bounce to begin the next rep. The ball must settle on the ground before being picked up for the next rep.

ROW

The monitor on the rower must be set to zero at the beginning of each row. The athlete may have assistance resetting the monitor. The athlete must stay seated on the rower until the monitor reads 19 calories. 

“The Open will name national champions in over 150 countries and is an important step in determining the Fittest on Earth. It is also an event that connects the CrossFit community through shared suffering and celebration. The story of the 2019 Open and its announcements will be told by many voices around the globe.”
