Compare to: CrossFit Open 11.4 (Benchmark)
Coaching Tips: The bar weight is strange because this is what CrossFit prescribed on the Open 2011 version. If you aren’t logging this as a benchmark, feel free to round this to the nearest load that uses the least amount of small plates. Move fast on the burpees, but do not blow your shoulders up. You will need them on the overhead squats and the muscle ups/ring push-ups. Pace the burpees so you can go right into the first round of overhead squats with no rest. Consider resting the bar on your back if you do not want to pick it up, but dropping the bar once or twice is still a good option. Get right on the muscle ups to get that first set in, then pace them so you can finish strong. If you make it to the burpees, go hard!
