Day 72: 13.2 Announced

Last week, in Open Workout 13.1, CrossFitters around the world had to complete as many burpees and snatches as they could in 17 minutes. 

In the end, there were 9,062,858 burpees and 5,701,658 snatches performed, for a total of 14,764,516 reps. And that's just among submitted results!
Now, Workout 13.2 has just been announced by Dave Castro fromCrossFit South Brooklyn

Workout 13.2

10 minute AMRAP of:
5 Shoulder to overhead, 115 / 75 lbs
10 Deadlift, 115 / 75 lbs
15 Box jump, 24 / 20 inch

Looks easy right! Don't let this fool you. This just means that there is going to be no room for error or rest if you want to score high during 13.2. Rest 5 seconds and you are immediately 3-5 dead-lifts behind. Rest another 5 seconds and you are 3-5 box jumps behind. This has to be attacked with the same speed the whole 10 minutes. Try your hardest to not rest for the whole 10 minutes. If you absolutely do need to rest, do so on top of the box after a box jump. This is the best place to rest rather than the floor because you can still use your muscle reflexes on the next rep. Box Jumps are all about bouncing off the floor by using a stretch reflex in your legs. The only true box jump should be the first one of each round...the rest should be a reflex rebound right off of the ground.
