CrossFit Open Workout 20.1 movement standards


• Every rep begins with the barbell on the ground.
• Any variation of a snatch or clean and jerk is acceptable.
• Touch and go is permitted, but deliberately bouncing the barbell is not.
• Dropping from overhead is OK, but the bar must settle on the ground before the next rep.

• If using an empty barbell, or a barbell with smallerthan-standard bumper plates, each rep must begin with the barbell clearly below the knees.

The rep is counted when:

• The barbell is at full lockout overhead, with the hips, knees, and arms fully extended.
• The barbell is directly over or slightly behind the middle of the body.
• Note: If a split-style lift is used, both feet must be brought back in line to finish the rep.


• Must use a barbell with 18-inch plates.
• Must be performed perpendicular to and facing the barbell.

• May jump or step back to reach the bottom position.
• Chest and thighs must touch the ground with the head behind the barbell.
• Hands and feet must remain inside the width of the plates.
• Stepping and/or jumping back to the starting position are both permitted.

Touching the bar, single-legged jumping, or stepping over is not permitted.
• Scaled divisions may step over the bar.

• The rep is credited when both feet have touched the ground on the opposite side of the barbell.
• No need to land with both feet at the same time.
• Must be perpendicular to and facing the barbell before starting the next rep.
• If a “no rep” is received for any reason, the entire rep must be repeated.
