Here we go! The first workout of the 2013 CrossFit Games Open is under way!

The first video below is my “Advice” video, which I’ve been doing for the past few years for the Open. Basically, I just talk about the workout, and then my own personal strategies for attacking the workout. Below that will be the two featured videos from the CrossFit HQ YouTube page that review Official Movement Standards and a “Workout Demo” by none other than the beautiful Julie Foucher.

Here’s a summary of 13.1 one from me:
– Find a comfortable pace for those burpees, so shoulders and heart rate aren’t RACING when you get to the bar for Snatches.
– Feel strong on the snatches. If doing 10 snatches unbroken will destroy your grip/lower back/form, then every snatch thereafter will be a disaster.
– BREATH. 17 minutes is a long time. Don’t think you need to sprint at any one part just to make up ground. Control yourself and know your pace.

Have fun out there, and GOOD LUCK!
