Open 17.1 Prep, Strategy, Mobility, and Attempt
>Find a consistent pace which will allow you to move the entire time. Do NOT go out of the gate or you will ‘redline’ after the 1st set of Burpee Box Jump Overs and end up resting more than you should be moving which will eat up your time.
>Hydrate well before this workout!! Take in plenty of electrolytes.
>This WOD is all about your engine. Can you keep moving??
>Don’t stop moving, keep a consistent pace.
>Stay tight on the snatches to keep from lighting up the lower back. Make sure to keep hips lower than chest.
>Make sure to USE your hips to explode each rep and NOT pull with your arms or back.
>Mix in using a hook grip and no hook grip to save your grip.
Burpee Box Jump-overs :
>Don’t stop, keep moving at a consistent pace. The more you rest, the more time eats away at the clock.
>Step to box to conserve energy, then jump on box. Just like a bar-facing burpee mechanic we’ve practice in class.
>Stay low on burpee box jump overs to save time. If quads start to tighten up, make sure to stand up on box.
