CrossFit Open 18.1: Pace Yo Self
The CrossFit Open is officially back. Grab your wrist wraps and chalk your hands up because it's about to get ugly. 18.1 was announced on Thursday night and if you've signed up for the Open you're eager to get it done with. Here is what we've got:
Complete as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of:
10 dumbbell hang clean and jerks
Women use 35-lb. dumbbell
Men use 50-lb. dumbbell
How are you going to prepare for this 20 minute workout? I like CrossFit's Director of Certification and Training, Nicole Carroll's suggestions. I follow her page and she has some helpful tips. Check them out below.
After completing 18.1 last night I will say there is one thing to keep in mind. Take a guess. I gave it away with the title of this blog. Yes.....PACE YO SELF!! Seriously though. It's all about keeping your engine going. Don't give it all you got in the beginning. You'll need some fuel to reach the finish line.
Did you do 18.1 yet? What did you think? What was the hardest part for you? I'd love to hear you comments and suggestions so leave your comments below.
