In case you didn’t know, the OC Throwdown is one of the largest and most competitive competitions outside of the CrossFit Games. Sandra beat out previous Games champions and podium finishers as well as a couple dozen games competitors from previous years!

The CrossFit Open is Coming!
The Programming Gnomes have been hard at work and have assembled a list of movements that people should be able to do if they’d like to finish and/or do well in the Open (beginning March 6th). This list is pretty basic, and by no means ‘aggressive’ by CrossFit standards. It was our goal to create a simple list of movements that we think have a high probability of being in the Open. The weights/heights are very rough, and naturally the better you are at a movement the better you will do at a workout containing that move.
Most people should be looking at this list the other way (“what DON’T I have on this list”). If you have a movement that is a terrible Goat, or impossible for you on the “Need” list, that is your primary mission. Once you have all of those locked down, you can move on to the “Would Like” column. Once you get all of those, you will probably want to spend some time mastering the “Need” list before really focusing on the “Good to Have” list.
Good to Have (prob. not required)
|burpees||Power cleans (155/103)||clean and jerk (heavy) (185/115)+|
|double unders||power snatch (115/73)||squat cleans (185/115)+|
|box jumps (24in/20in)||overhead squat (135/93)||squat snatch (135/93)+|
|barbell thrusters (95lbs/63lbs)||pistols||muscle ups|
|Deadlift (185/125) for reps||handstand push ups|
|wall ball (20lb/10ft, 14lb/9ft)||Jerks –heavy- (135lbs, 93lbs)|
|toes to bar|
