Standards (courtesy of the CF Games website):
This workout begins seated on the rower with the monitor set to zero calories. At the call of “3-2-1…Go,” the athlete will grab the handle and begin rowing. At the end of the set of cleans and the set of muscle-ups, time should be marked. When you submit your final result, your score will be the number of reps completed. There will be another field in which you will enter the elapsed time at which you completed the 30 cleans or the 20 muscle- ups, whichever was last. If you do not get through the 30 cleans you will not have a tiebreak time.
The coaches were kind enough to accommodate me doing 14.4 after Sunday class since I wasn’t feeling great on Saturday. Sorry I missed all the fun, it sounds like everyone rocked it!!
Perhaps doing this after class wasn’t the smartest, but my goal was to get a good Sunday workout, and I definitely did! The row really gassed me out, much more than I thought — my glutes were so tired by the end (probably also from the lunges during class!). I’ve never done a T2B, and I gave it my all but it just wasn’t in the cards today. I got really close, though! Thank you to Coach Steph and everyone who cheered me on!
Tyler said something last week that really struck me — “maybe that’s just where my fitness is right now.” The Open is advertised as a “test of fitness,” and I hadn’t really considered that before his comment, but I think it’s true. Only by testing different movements do you know what your fitness is like now, and more importantly, what you need to work on. I’m more motivated than ever to get back on that bar and get a T2B!!! (once my shoulders recover, that is!)
