Week 5’s workout for the 2011 CrossFit Games Open was released, so that means we knew what the Wednesday workout was going to be at CrossFit Lakewood.

I have been posting the videos from CrossFit HQ on what the workout is, along with some advice each week, and that post will come next. Don’t worry.

The workout was the first (and only) one during this part of the Competition to reach the 20 minute time domain, so this will separate out some of those people who lack in the Endurance department.

Workout of the Day:
As Many Rounds As Possible in 20 Minutes
5 Power Cleans, (145#/100#) / 10 Toes 2 Bar / 15 Wall Balls (20# to 10′ target/14# to 9′ target)

For many of our newer CF-ers, it was their first time using the Power Clean movement in a workout. Over the course of the 20 minutes, form improved dramatically! Great job, guys. It’s so much fun getting to coach such quick learners!

We had a few people doing the official Competition WOD with their judges at the same time, too!
