Strategy for CrossFit Open 16.1

Black Star Strategy for CrossFit Open 16.1

Another year of the CrossFit Games series is upon us. Thursday evening, Workout 16.1 was announced. One new movement – overhead walking lunges. This movement shouldn’t be a challenge for anyone following this program and neither should the workout be much of a challenge either. We haven’t seen a workout this long in a while with this many moving parts, however, it shouldn’t present much of a problem. Which unfortunately means, I predict, you will have a lot of scores bunched on the Leaderboard. So your movement and efficiency are paramount. Consider doing this one multiple times as well. It won’t be very taxing but allow at least two days in between your efforts. Good luck and make sure you check out the strategy video below.


Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 20 minutes of:
25-ft. overhead walking lunge
8 burpees
25-ft. overhead walking lunge
8 chest-to-bar pull-ups

Men lunge 95 lb.
Women lunge 65 lb.
