CrossFit gave us a bit of a surprise with two scored events in Workout 15.1. The first is a classic CrossFit WOD. 15-10-5 repetitions of Toes to Bar, Deadlifts and Snatches. Pacing will be very important and a good game plan will be vital. The second is a straight forward strength and skill test. How much weight can you get from the floor to overhead... right after 9 minutes of work of course! Nothing too shocking really, just CrossFit. Be prepared for anything!
This is a very grip intensive workout. Break up the toes-to-bar and deadlifts right from the start. Initially, my thought is to break the toes-to-bar into sets of 5. The deadlifts are light, but if you hold on to that bar for all 10 reps, your grip will get fatigued very quickly. I would also break the deadlifts into sets of 5. For most, I would recommend dropping every repetition of the snatch. Bringing the bar to the floor will fatigue your grip very quickly. The first 5 minutes of this workout is all about saving your grip.
You should already have an idea what your 1-rep-max clean and jerk is. You only have 6 minutes, so you aren't going to have a lot of time to make many attempts. Get a quick rep in, with a somewhat heavy load, quickly. A clean and jerk done after a 9 minute WOD is going to feel much different than a clean and jerk when fresh. Get your second rep in at around the 2:30 mark. Third attempt at around the 5 minute mark. This will give you one extra minute to get one final, last ditch attempt in.
Have fun everyone!
