Week five brings us to the last workout of the 2o12 CrossFit Games Open. Remember, it’s only the top 60 from each region that make it through to regionals. So what ever you have left in your tank now is the time to make that final push.
The workout is prescribed as follows:
Complete as many reps as possible in 7 minutes of the following rep scheme:
100 pound Thruster, 3 reps
3 Chest to bar Pull-ups
100 pound Thruster, 6 reps
6 Chest to bar Pull-ups
100 pound Thruster, 9 reps
9 Chest to bar Pull-ups
100 pound Thruster, 12 reps
12 Chest to bar Pull-ups
100 pound Thruster, 15 reps
15 Chest to bar Pull-ups
100 pound Thruster, 18 reps
18 Chest to bar Pull-ups
100 pound Thruster, 21 reps
21 Chest to bar Pull-ups…
This is a timed workout. If you complete the round of 21, go on to 24. If you complete 24, go on to 27, etc.
Video Submission Standards:
Prior to starting, film the barbell and plates to show that it is loaded to the appropriate weight for your division. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person with a stopwatch will need to be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from the side so that it is clear that proper depth and lockout is being reached on the thrusters and the chest can be seen touching the bar on the pull-ups.
This one is going to be a real lung burner but in seven minutes there is not much time for resting. The good and bad news is after this seven-minutes you have may have a whole year of rest yet until we do it all again next year (that is unless you make it to Regionals).

Best of luck to everyone. Cheers,
