Open WOD 15.1 & 15.1a



2015 CrossFit Open Kicks Off today!
If you haven’t signed up yet, what are you waiting for?

The CrossFit Open is for EVERYONE, regardless of ability level. 2015 will be the first year there’s also a scaled division in the Open, so there’s no reason not to participate. Registration is just $20 for five weeks of fun. Don’t miss out on one of the most exciting times of the year for CrossFitters!

We’ll perform the workouts in class each Friday, and you’ll be judged by one of your classmates whether you signed up or not.  

You can then submit your score online and see how you stack up against athletes from all over the world. If you crush a particular workout, you could also contribute a score to help the CrossFit Southie team qualify for Regionals!

Hold yourself accountable, punch the ticket and see how you stack up.

    154/237#. 2# PR on the C&J!

  3. Trevor Crean 02/28/2015 at 1:40 am

    115 reps
    170# C+J (tied PR)
    Very relieved to have handled this one as well as I did, 115# snatches are HEAVY for me.
    15 of the ugliest snatches I’ve ever done…

    15.1: 150 reps
    15.1a: 150# C&J PR!!!!!!

  5. JBo 02/27/2015 at 10:55 pm

    15.1: 165 reps (scaled division)
    15.1a: 155lbs. This is 20lbs off my PR but haven’t gone heavy overhead in a LOOOONNNNG time due to shoulder issues. So I’m definitely content!
    Very happy to have the scaled option. I feel like I got an awesome workout in while competing. If I had to do Rx, I would’ve been lucky to get 1 or 2 snatches (since 115lbs is my PR) and would’ve been staring at the bar getting aggravated!
    Let’s go CrossFit Southie!!!

    Frawls’ color coordination in this picture is majestic.

      It really is a work of art. We dogged him last night when the pic posted and he tried to tell us that the shirt is not blue. We all laughed at him.

        OMG. Is it like that gold&white / black&blue dress everyone’s talking about?!

    Great crowd this morning, lots of energy! I hope it continues throughout the day.

    177 reps, 242lbs. Opening C+J weight (217lbs) felt like 500 lbs, but got easier as I progressed

    Don’t forget to post your scores to the CF Games website if you’re registered!
