CrossFit Open Workout 19.5 Ends the CrossFit Open — And I Couldn’t Be Happier

I like the CrossFit Open, but let’s face it, five weeks of workouts meant to test your skills and where each workout is a competition (with yourself if no one else) is challenging. It disrupts training, alters your routine, and keeps you stressed out on Thursday night until you finish the workout.

CrossFit Open Workout 19.5 was as predicted:

33-27-21-15-9 of:

  • Thrusters 65 lbs
  • Chest to bar pull ups

Because this was the Open, I kipped the chest to bar pull ups because it’s faster for me and because my strict chest to bar pull ups go relatively quickly. This was a mistake since I ended up tearing in 4 places, making the workout miserable for me. I had to stop and grab hand guards and it was overall dumb after that.

I haven’t torn in a year because I don’t normally kip anything for that very reason. Needless to say, I’m not exactly thrilled about the upcoming week, having to limit my workouts until my hands heal. Plus, I’m already dealing with a calf strain, so this week overall will suck.

I’m glad the CrossFit Open is over, so things can return to normal — as normal as a CrossFit life can get.
