Bailey and Froning during CrossFit Games Open 12.2

Last week was burpees, burpees, burpees. This week it’s snatches, snatches, snatches! CrossFit HQ has just released the CrossFit Open workout 12.2 and here is how it stands.

Men and women will move through a ten-minute ladder sequence of 4 rounds of increasing weighted snatches. In round one participants will attempt to complete 30 repetitions of the snatch at 75 pounds for men, 45 pounds for women. If they complete the 30-reps within the ten-minute time frame, they will then move to round two. Here they will be required to change the weight themselves with no assistance. They will increase their load to 135 pounds for men, 75 pounds for women and attempt to complete another round of 30 snatches. If they complete round two they will move to round three. Here they will increase the bar to 165 pounds for men, 100 pounds for the women for another round of 30-reps. If they complete this, they will progress to the fourth and final round where they will increase the barbell to 210 pounds for men, 120 pounds for women and complete as many repetitions of the snatch in the time remaining.

CrossFit HQ describes workout 12.2 in the following manner.

MEN – includes Masters Men up to 54 years old
Proceed through the sequence below completing as many reps as possible in 10 minutes of: 

75 pound Snatch, 30 reps

135 pound Snatch, 30 reps

Movement Standards
This workout begins from the standing position with the barbell loaded to the starting weight. In the Snatch, the barbell goes directly from the ground to overhead in one motion without stopping at the shoulders. This can be a muscle snatch, a power snatch, a squat snatch or a split snatch. A clean and jerk is not permitted.

Last year’s CrossFit Games winner Rich Froning and Dan Bailey have already gone head to head to demonstrate this workout. Froning ended with 98-reps while last year’s CrossFit Open winner, Bailey scored 95.

The question is who will be the first to hit the 100 mark?

You can watch the standards and the demonstration video below.
