CrossFit Open Workout 21.2 Movement Standards

How to do Burpee Box Jump Overs (RX and Scaled)

• The burpee box jump-over starts with the athlete facing the box while touching their chest and thighs to the ground and finishes with the athlete jumping over the box.

• In the bottom position, the center of the athlete’s chest must be on the line, and the feet and hands must be straddling the line.

• Athletes may step or jump in and out of the push-up position.

• Each rep is counted when the athlete lands on the ground on the opposite side of the box. From there, they may begin their next rep.

• A two-foot takeoff is always required, and only the athlete’s feet may touch the box.

• After landing on the box, the athlete may jump or step off to the other side.

• Alternatively, the athlete may jump completely over the box.

• If jumping over the box, the feet must pass over the box, not around it, and the athlete must use a two-foot landing.

• There is no requirement to stand tall while on top of the box.

• *Scaled/Masters 55+ may step up.

How to do Dumbbell Snatches (RX and Scaled)

•The dumbbell snatch starts with both heads of the dumbbell on the ground.

• The athlete must lift the dumbbell overhead in one motion. A clean and jerk is not allowed.

• Touch-and-go is permitted. Bouncing the dumbbell is not allowed.

• Athletes must alternate arms after each repetition and may not alternate until a successful rep is achieved.

• The athlete may not use the non-lifting hand or arm to assist by making contact with the legs or other parts of the body during the repetition.

• At the top, the athlete’s arms, hips, and knees must be fully locked out, with the dumbbell clearly over the middle of the athlete’s body when viewed from profile.

• The rep is credited once the athlete has reached lockout.

• The athlete may choose to do a split snatch. However, both feet must return in line under the athlete’s body while the dumbbell is locked out overhead for the repetition to count.

• Athletes may not receive any assistance in resetting the dumbbell.

How to do Hang Squat Snatches (Equipment Free)

  • The athlete starts the hang squat snatch with their hips, legs, and arms extended.
  • From this position, the athlete lowers the stick to the hang, which is any area below the hip but above the
    knee.
  • The arms must remain straight in the hang position
  • The athlete must lift the stick overhead in one motion.
  • The athlete must receive the stick in a squat position, with the crease of the hip lower than the top of the knees.
  • A power snatch followed by an overhead squat is not permitted. The athlete may not pause or begin standing until they have reached the proper depth.
  • At the top, the athlete’s arms, hips, and knees must be fully locked out, with the stick clearly over the middle of their body when viewed from profile.
  • The rep is credited when the athlete reaches lockout.
  • To begin the next repetition, the athlete can lower the stick from the overhead position directly to the hang.

How to do a Burpee Broad Jump (Equipment Free)

  • Demarcate a gap that is 36 inches wide from outside edge to outside edge.
  • Each burpee broad jump starts with the athlete facing the 36-inch gap while touching their chest and thighs to the ground and finishes with the athlete jumping over the 36-inch gap.
  • In the bottom position, the athlete’s hands must be clearly behind the line. If the athlete’s fingers are touching the line, the rep will not count.
  • Athletes may step or jump in and out of the push-up position.
  • The athlete begins the broad jump with both feet clearly behind the line.
  • A two-foot takeoff is required.
