It’s that time of year again – time for the CrossFit Games Open.
5 Weeks. 5 Workouts. 1 Way to the Regionals.

CrossFit DC will run each workout on Saturday starting at 11:30am (so no 11:30 class). We’ll continue until everyone’s completed their workout, so the length of the time needed will depend on the length of the workouts themselves.

Workout 13.5

4 minute AMRAP of
15 Thrusters (M=100lbs / W=65 lbs)
15 Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups
**Add an additional 4 minutes for every 90 reps (3 rds) completed within the 4 minute time frame**

    I know a lot of people have been training really hard all year and have been waiting for this day for a long time…it’s awesome that so many people are registered and I hope everyone has as much fun as they can. Cannot wait to see the CFDC athletes represent πŸ™‚

    Ok – you talked me into it Erica, though I’ve been doing crossfit for about two months I’m doing 13.1 tonight. Now I need to talk Chris into playing In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida or Rush 2112 to get me through the 17 minutes.

  11. Erica says:

    CFDC programming for Sunday will include heavy squats, right?

  12. Patrick Burke says:

    Thank you for letting me drop in for 13.4. I will tell any and everyone if they are in the DC area, that Crossfit DC is the only place to look.
    Thank you Tom and Chris for being so accommodative.

    The box is absolutely killer and the welcoming community that you have fostered is incredible. There is not a single person there that could have been nicer.

    Congratulations on your success and look forward to seeing you the next time I am in DC

    Pat, it was a pleasure to meet you! You killed 13.4, it was awesome to watch! We look forward to having you back again.

    I’ve really enjoyed having so many athletes drop in for this year’s Open workouts — it’s been fun to realize what a huge community we have in CrossFit. I love it.

  14. Steph says:

    If there was a “like” button for our comments, I’d “like” both Katie’s and Pat’s! πŸ™‚

    Nice to meet you, Pat! Hope to see you again soon!

    Well done, CFDC! See you this Saturday for the finale!

  15. Tom Brose says:
