CrossFit Open 19.1 workout, description and links

We are all eager to get started, so let’s dive right into the details of CrossFit Open 19.1 workout and all the details we can find:

Workout 19.1
19 wall-ball shots
19 cal. row

Men throw a 20-lb. ball to a 10-ft. target, women throw a 14-lb. ball to a 9-ft. target.

The workout begins with the medicine ball on the ground and athlete standing tall. After the call of “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete will pick up the ball and perform the wall-ball shots. After 19 reps are complete, the athlete will move to the rower and pull 19 calories. The monitor must read 19 calories before the athlete can unstrap and move back to the wall-ball shots for the next round.

The athlete’s score will be the total number of repetitions completed within the 15-minute time cap. Each calorie completed on the row will be equal to 1 rep. There is no tiebreak for this workout.

Here is the official video of the workout standards:

The two first licensed events are CrossFit Sand Clash,” a two-day event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (instagram) and the CrossFit Collegiate Championship which will be held at the United States Air Force Academy on April 19–21, 2019.

The licensed events can make limited use of the CrossFit trademark and the event organizer needs to hold a crossfit L1 certificate.
