Workout of the Day
1 Snatch Pull + 1 Power Snatch
x 6-8 sets
On the Snatch Pull: Push with the legs through the whole foot against the floor. Maintain even balance over the whole foot and actively keep the bar as close to the legs as possible, and maintain approximately the same back angle until the bar is past the knees. Once at lower to mid-thigh, open the hips explosively while driving vertically with the legs even harder to accelerate maximally.
Extend the entire body vertically—don’t try to mimic the hyperextension of the hips we would have in an actual snatch. Here we want to focus on vertical power and balance.
10 Snatches (95/65#)
12 Bar Facing Burpees
rest 4 min
10 Bar Muscle Ups
12 Bar Facing Burpees
This is a play on Open Workout 19.3.
Snatches may be power or full.
You may jump or step back and forward on your burpees, but both feet must be in the air at the same time as you jump over the barbell.

EVERYTHING you need to know about the CrossFit Open @ CFSBK
HOW AND WHEN TO PERFORM THE CROSSFIT OPEN WORKOUTS
CFSBKers will have three options for completing the CrossFit Open workouts each week. Check out your options below and make sure to register for the Open. This is our 13th year participating in the Open and already have nearly 70! CFSBKers registered to participate! Monday we’ll share some fun activities around the Open we’re going to run this year!
FRIDAY NIGHT FEVER
Every Friday starting at 6pm we’ll run three heats of the Open workout in 597. This is a more festive approach to the Open where we light up the space, break out the discoball and encourage folks to come watch. It’s a lot of fun! If you want to participate just RSVP for a heat time on Zen Planner (FNF is available only to people registered for the Open through CrossFit).
Note that your heat start time means that’s when we’ll review the standards and start your workout. All warm-ups will be DIY beforehand. We also ask that after you perform your workout (and recover) you help judge someone from the next heat. Volunteer judges from folks watching are also extremely appreciated!!
We will run the Open workouts Saturdays in group classes on 2/18, 2/25 and 3/4. Sign-up for these classes will work as normal and be available to all CFSBK members. Note that individuals not registered for the Open through CrossFit will do a modified version of the Open workout instead of the official version.
Each class will include a warm-up, standards review and then run two heats of the workout so that one person can perform the workout while another judges before switching roles.
Members who would like to perform the workout in Open Gym between Thursday and Monday are allowed to but need to manage getting their own judge. Their judge needs to be someone else registered for the Open or well versed in CrossFit.
THEME WEEKS & THE EXTRACURRICULAR OPEN
