The Good Oil

Roachy OHL

If you have still got 16.3 on the brain and wish to repeat you will have to do so outside of normal class times. There has been some amazing progress on the bar muscle up, with several nailing their first during the workout, and many coming desperately close. The Open has forced all of us to search deep into our bag of tricks and try, try and try again to achieve the near impossible. Damn chest to bar pull ups, double unders and now this..a bar muscle up??!! But we all got way better than we were, and if you didn’t get one this time..then there’s always next time. Just never give up trying. :-)

16.3

Today we will spend time preparing the shoulders for possibly your first bar muscle up. The fast light power snatches will demand an explosive and accurate technique to drive those hips upward and get those elbows above the bar, particularly when fatigued. Brute strength can only get you so far. Try and muscle your way through this and seven minutes will seem an eternity. So far most of us have a had a crack at 16.3 and the snatches looked very good. The thought that over 300,000 people  doing exactly the same workout, half of them probably without a muscle up  can give us the perspective that the CrossFit Open is extraordinary in that it asks for nearly the impossible. It then gives those that persevere a set of tools to try and figure it out, then do things that to the normal guy and girl is the domain  of Olympians or super-heroes..cool huh :-)
