The 2018 CrossFit Games Open is here.  Sam Briggs and Kristin Holte battled it out last night as the workout was announced.  After an early lead, Holte was passed by Briggs who ultimately crushed this workout. 

The workout is:

Open 18.1
8 Toes to Bar
10 Dumbbell Hang Clean and Jerks
14/12 Calorie Row

As I watched the elite women do this workout, I noticed that Briggs came out at a more measured pace.  This strategy worked well for her because she could hold this pace throughout the entire workout. 

I like the 20 minute time but I really dont know what to expect.  I will do this workout at an affiliate this afternoon at 3:30.

Yesterday we simply scheduled some movements to get us mobile but kept it light.

30 calories on Assault Bike

2 min rest

20  Bar facing burpees

10 Thruster

10 pullups
