The workout for Week 2 of this year’s CrossFit Games Open IS:

As many rounds as possible in 15 minutes of
9 Deadlifts
12 Push-Ups
15 Box Jumps

Here is the official range of motion requirements and their video, taken directly off of the Games Site.

This is a traditional deadlift with the hands outside the knees. Sumo-deadlifts are not allowed. Starting at the floor, the barbell is lifted until hips and knees reach full extension with the shoulders behind the bar. The arms must be straight throughout.

A straight body position must be maintained throughout. No snaking, sagging or pushing up from the knees. The elbows and shoulders must be locked out at the top with the feet no wider than shoulder width. At the bottom, the chest (nipple-line or above) must touch the floor and the hands must be lifted.

Box Jump
This is a two-foot jump onto the box. The hips and knees must open fully at or above the height of standing on the box. Both feet must be on the box together at some point in the rep. You may jump down or step down but you must jump up. Stepping up is only permitted for the two elder Masters categories (55+), not for anyone else.

Do you guys have any strategies of how to go about this? Share some of yours, and I’ll do the same.
