2015 CrossFit Open WOD 15.5

Coming to our Friday Night Fights for 15.5 tonight?  Bring a dish and stay after to celebrate the end of the open as well as Coach Jon's birthday!

15.5 was announced last night, and I am happy to say - I was wrong about the burpees!  However, those of you getting your open on today or this weekend don't get to escape the awesome pain cave that 15.5 promises to be.  Here is what you are facing:

Open WOD 15.5

27 - 21 - 15 - 9:

  • Row (calories)
  • Thrusters

(RX - 95 | 65 ; Scaled - 65 | 45)

15.5 Standards

A lot of strategy discussions I've seen focus on proper form as much as they do pacing.  Don't skimp on your warm up and DON'T SPRINT OUT THE GATE!  Create a mental game plan so you don't go out too hard and hit a wall. 

Here is the breakdown from some of our friends:

Reflecting on your last year of CrossFit as you prep for 15.5's pain cave.

Good luck!  See you today!!
