Today you get to prep yourself again for the upcoming Open competition by taking part in another previous Open Workout. This time you will be hitting 13.1, a 17 min AMRAP of Burpees and Snatches. As has been mentioned before, the reason we are programming so many previous Open workouts is so that we can try and replicate what you might expect during the competition. This will give you some familiarity with the style of workouts, which will in turn prep you mentally and physically. There is also every likelihood that this workout will in fact be programmed during the Open (they have made a habit of repeating at least one workout each year from a previous year) so you will be in a better position to strategise your execution.
If all of this sounds too serious for you, then just forget everything you just read and treat this as any old workout for you to come in and have a crack at. It’s that simple.
