Today we will do the CrossFit Games WOD 12.2. For those of you competing, please watch the video, read the movement standards, and get ready to get after it at 0530. Here is the link: http://games.crossfit.com/workouts/the-open?#tabs-2
Key points -
Bar starts from the ground, must get fully overhead using a snatch (power, muscle, split or squat snatches are all legit, doing a clean and jerk is NOT legit).
Bar overhead with arms, hips, and knees all fully extended - bar overhead at midline of foot - meaning the weight isn't out of front of your head, but directly OVERhead and inline with your midline.
Bar returns to the floor, touch and go is fine, but bouncing is not
**Please remember that Arvin prohibits dropping weights, so please demonstrate as much control as possible and don't drop the weight unless you have to**
Must use a single barbell and change your own weights without assistance. Spring clips required.
Scaling is a NOGO for Games competitors, but HIGHLY encouraged for those who are not competing in the Games.
If you physically cannot complete all 30 reps at the rx'd weight, then your performance is terminated and your score is recorded with the last successful rep. If after that point you want to scale so you can finish the 10 minutes, then by all means go for it.
