"Opens Workout 13.5 + Some Suggestions"(4.4.2013)

*Opens Workout 13.5 Announced on the Games Site.*


We will be performing the Opens 13.5 Workout this Saturday, April 6th at Vagabond as a Community. We encourage all Vagabonds to come on Saturday Morning to participate in the workout and have a great morning session with fellow Vagabonds. If you cannot make the Saturday Opens Workout, you are allowed to make up at some point during the week. This is the last week of the CrossFit Opens, so we would love to see everyone at the gym on Saturday for the last workout for the CrossFit Opens. The last five weeks have been great, and have seen some great accomplishments over this short period of time. Congrats to Everyone Competing, and Keep Moving Onward!

*Tips on 13.5 CrossFit Opens Workout*

For those who will be completing the Opens Workout 13.5 as RX with chest to bar pull ups and thrusters, then approach this workout with the idea of pacing yourself within the first 4 minutes. If you know you will not make it out of the first four minutes, then treat this like the CrossFit Workout, “Fran”, and hit it hard. If you are someone who is confident you will make it through the first 4 minutes in 90 repetitions, then pace yourself, to save your body for the next onslaught of the following 4 minutes.

For those who are worried about chest to bar pull ups, then we will be scaling the movement to ring rows or Jumping Chest to Bar Pull Ups. On the Jumping Chest to Bar Pull Ups, you must be 6 inches away from the pull up bar from head to to bottom of pull up bar. Please remember all can participate in this workout, and all can still have fun within this style of workout. Please pay attention to the scaled portion of the workout, that Vagabond will provide for all Phases.
