CrossFit Open Workout 20.2 Recap

Let me be clear while also keeping things short and sweet:  Open workout 20.2 was simply brutal!  The workout consisted of the following:

AMRAP in 20 minutes of:

4 dumbbell thrusters (50 lbs./35 lbs.)

6 toes to bar

24 double-unders

I did the workout Rx and was praying for 10 rounds.  Turns out, 10 rounds would have been a miracle.  I finished with 5 + 4.  The dumb bell thrusters could not have felt heavier – thank goodness there were just 4 reps per round.  I did singles on my toes to bar because I’m not quite to performing the movement consecutively, and then the double-unders: well, need I really talk about the double-unders?  They are mythical and come and go seemingly with no reason.  Put sets of 24 into a long grinding workout like this, and you’ll be left breathless.  Double-unders will destroy both your confidence and self-respect!  I ended up performing my double-unders 2 to 5 reps at a time which ended up taking a LONG time!  Overall, Open workout 20.2 left me breathless from the get-go.  It was a humbling experience.  Despite this, I remain optimistic.  In the last month, I have really focused on double-unders and gaining strength and technique in performing toes to bar.  Each day, I dedicate 10-20 minutes to practice each and, I really look forward to repeating this workout in 6 months!
