Open workout 19.2 will be announced to the world on Thursday at 5pm. Any guesses as to what’s coming?

Remember that your first opportunity to do the Open workout (particularly for folks who will be away for the weekend) is Thursday evening during our 6pm “THE OPEN” class. Be sure to sign-up in advance as you would for any other class if you plan on making an attempt at the workout. Those of you who like to geek out on strategy and/or pacing, or just get some extra practice on whatever movement combination is announced, are also welcome to come an “test drive” the Open workout during that class time — with the understanding that your real attempt will be on Saturday morning during our traditional OPEN heats (or Sunday during Open Gym if you simply cannot make it in on Saturday).

Much like we did on Monday with barbell cycling and bodyweight movements/shapes/holds we’ll mix the two domains across an alternating EMOM and a task-priority met-con. Yes, we are slightly betting against a few movements here in 19.2 but even if we’re wrong about that the volume, loading, and intensity is carefully measured (hence the 2 Rounds and not an AMRAP) in such a way that you should be good to go this weekend regardless.
