We've got a repeat on our hands, folks.
We've seen this before. The HSPU standards are challenging, and the deadlifts - for some of us - will get heavy.
Here's what I recommend...
Similar to what I advised for 18.4... If 225/155 lbs is heavy for you, there's nothing absolutely nothing wrong with starting with singles.
It may sound silly, but this is actually going to eliminate a ton of wasted energy that you use to lower the barbell.
If 225/155 lbs is fairly easy for you - but the following weights of 315/205 lbs is heavy... then move to singles in round two.
Pro tip - wear a lifting belt for 20.3.
Have you already done CrossFit Open 20.3? Then my guess is your back might need a little TLC - check out our 20.3 recovery video here.
Scaled (For Time, 9 Min Cap, 21-15-9)
(For Time, 9 Min Cap, 21-15-9)
** Dependant on age group. For a complete standards guide, please visit the Open 20.3 page.
Something to note on Hand Release Push-ups - be sure to read the standards. While it doesn't specify feet staying on the ground, there is no pushing up through the knees.
Final note for all age divisions - Rx and Scaled.
This is a 9 minute workout. If the second deadlift weight is something that you expect to make - you can't sprint out of the gate with unbroken deadlifts or you're going to blow up. Try to set yourself up so that you're fresh heading into that heavier weight.
If you know that you can't lift the heavier weight... then you SHOULD treat the first part of the workout as a sprint (as your last completed round of deadlifts is your tiebreaker time.) Here are a few 20.3 workout pacing tips.
