So, the first WOD of the 2012 CrossFit Games Opens is:

AMRAP 7 Minutes – Burpees (rules to follow)

At first glance one would say, “Burpees? Really?” But think about it? What a tremendous test of Work Capacity!

I just did a quick check on the registration rules. You have until Saturday at 5PM PST to register. If you want to give this a go, you still have time. Click this link to register.

Today’s Workout:

Push Press 5-5-5-5-5

Rest 2-3 minutes between sets.

then:

AMRAP 7 Minutes

As many burpees as you can. The rules:

This workout begins from the standing position, then the athlete will move from flat on the ground to touching an object with both hands that is 6 inches above their max reach. To complete this workout you
will only need a target that can be set at least 6 inches above the athlete’s max reach. E.G. A ring, a bar, a doorframe, a chunk of tape on the wall.

At the top of the burpee both hands must make contact with the target.

Bottom of the Burpee: At the bottom position the athlete’s chest and hips must touch the ground.

The height of the target must be no less than 6 inches above the athlete’s fingertips when they are standing feet together with a straight line through their wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip and knees. The athlete should be shrugging their shoulders and reaching as high as possible while the measurement is being made.
