16.5 is the final Open event of the year and this is a combination that shouldn’t be too surprising to those that have recently (re)taken their CrossFit L1. Thrusters and burpees are on tap and this all engine event leaves you no where to hide!
1. Use the set of 21 to grease the groove pushing hard but not going all out. Find a sustained pace until you get to round 6 and 3. On those rounds, go and don’t stop!
2. Use your legs to drive the bar and spare the shoulders for burpees.
3. Exchange your breathe at the top of the movement, not anywhere else.
Again, find a pace that works for you. This is a movement where you can slow down, but you don’t ever need to stop. Use the clock to gauge time during breaks to make sure you’re not burning the seconds away.
Can You Do This Again
Absolutely. So use the first go round as recon to see where you can game a better score.
