Wednesday, CrossFit HQ announced the CF Games Open 13.3. Immediately following their announcement there was a great deal of gripes and complaints because this WOD in particular is a repeat Open WOD from 2012. Many people were put off by the lack of creativity or calling the programming folks lazy. Let’s turn this around and look at it from another viewpoint. For those of you who remember this WOD from last year and attempted it, it’s another chance to dominate this WOD. Beat your scores from last year. PR your “Karen” time. Get your first muscle up. For those that will be attempting this WOD for the first time today, set a goal and a rep scheme for yourself. Keep a good rhythm and make every rep count. Good luck Intrepids!
Without further ado, here are the standards for 13.3 direct from the CrossFit Games site:
Please be sure to watch the entire workout instruction video (above) for full details.
This workout begins from the standing position with the medicine ball on the floor and the Athlete standing tall. Using an additional ball, box or other object to check for proper depth is not allowed. If the ball is not caught between reps, it must come to a full stop on the ground. Bouncing the ball off the floor is not permitted.
Every rep counts in this workout. Credit will be given for partially completed rounds. You will enter your result by the total number of reps completed.
In this workout, we are using a special tiebreak method. At the end of each set of exercises, time should be marked. Specifically, as soon as the 150th Wall ball is complete, time should be marked. As soon as the 90th Double-under is complete, time should be marked. The same at the 30th Muscle-up, if you get there. When you submit your final result, your score will be the number of reps completed. There will be another field in which you will enter the elapsed time at the last fully completed exercise set, whichever that may be.
For example, a male athlete finishes all the reps up to and including 10 Muscle-ups, for a total of 250 reps. This is his score. He also finished the 150th Wall ball at 7:50, and the 90th Double-under at 9:25. In this case he will enter 9:25 as his time in the tiebreak field since this was the time of completion of his final fully completed set. This athlete would be ranked above someone who got 250 reps and a tiebreak time of 10:00, but below someone with 250 reps and a tiebreak time of 9:00.
Note: All tiebreak times must be reported in elapsed time, not in time remaining. If you are using a countdown timer, you must convert to elapsed time before reporting your score. For this reason, it is recommended that you set your clock to count up.
To complete this workout you will need:
• A medicine ball of the appropriate weight for your division
• A wall mark or target set at the specified height
• A jump rope
• A set of gymnastic rings hung so you can successfully perform a muscle-up
Romanian Deadlifts 3×5
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 12 minutes of:
150 Wall balls (20 lbs to 10′ target / 14 lbs to 9′ target)
