2012 Crossfit Games Open Workout 12.1

So the first Open workout closed last night. Shout out to Crossfit Virtuosity!! The workout was to do as many burpees as you can do in seven minutes. Official explanation: This workout begins from the standing position. The Athlete will move from flat on the ground to touching an object with both hands that is 6 inches above their max reach. Score is total reps completed.

If you have never done a burpees consider yourself lucky. I managed to do only 80 with two guys tied for the most at 161. That’s right I got lapped. There go my chances of getting to the 2012 Crossfit games.

  1. This is such a great idea, and I look forward to doing these wods and poistng! Thanks for putting it together. I also competed at the Master’s event at CF Sweatshop and remember this workout well. Kevin S., I hope you’ll be competing at our Nor Cal 40 s event at TJ’s Gym Novato on Feb 13th! It sounds like you are. This should be a great event for ages 40-49, so anyone out there, let me know if you have any questions. You can click on the Nor Cal 40 s icon on the tjsgym.com home page if you want more info. Should be a great day, and it’s being programmed by Andy Petranek at CFLA so it won’t be biased for any of our TJ’s Gym athletes, including me!Thanks again for this great outlet for us 40-and-up CFers!
