CrossFit Open 20.2 is live!
Castro has once again brought back dumbbells, this time in the form of Thrusters (a new movement).
Before anything else, let's take a look at the workout.
First and foremost, this workout is going to come down to if you can actually do the movements or not. Let's quickly take a look at each one.
New movement alert (not to brag... but we did predict them in our CrossFit Open 2020 Article 🙂 )
For a lot of athletes, these dumbbell thrusters are going to be heavy - so it's important that you don't overlook them. Test the weight beforehand and get a feel for what's possible, because remember... this is 20 minutes long.
Just like I've advised with previous Open workouts, it's completely fine to go singles on the toes to bar. With only 6 reps per round, that could actually be a great move for a lot of people.
That being said, if you can go unbroken and 6 toes to bar is cake for you - stick with that.
At the end of the day, this is a double under workout. If you can pick up that rope and not trip, and stay consistent, that's how you're going to win.
We're looking at an incredible amount of transitions, so a solid set-up for 20.2 is also going to be key. Have all of your equipment close together - 1 step to each piece of equipment is ideal.
Here is our most popular video on double unders and how to avoid tripping:
I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Slow is smooth, smooth is fast.
If you rush too much, or fatigue to a point where you can't physically do your double unders... you're going to waste a TON of time.
The goal here should be all about continuing to accumulate reps, even if they're not fast. Just keep moving.
Slow, smooth, and methodical. Stay in the zone. Towards the end, if you have gas in the tank, definitely ramp it up for a final push.
On the flip side, just like last week - do not come out of the gates too fast. This is going to cause you to make silly mistakes, trip up on your jump rope, fall of the bar, etc.
