CrossFit Open Workout 19.3 is:
- 200 ft one arm, overhead dumbbell walking lunges
- 50 dumbbell box step-ups
- 50 strict HSPU
- 200 ft handstand walk
Time cap is 10 min. 35 lb dumbbell for women, 50 lb dumbbell for men
This would have been my workout if I would have had strict HSPU. I was hoping to get at least one, which I didn’t. It would have been my first. Am I disappointed? No. Why?
I was telling my daughter who does CrossFit that unless you’re a professional CrossFit athlete, you don’t have time to work on every skill. For me, I have chosen ring muscle ups and handstand walks, which I’ve been trying to get for the past year. I am not doing anything to allow me to get a strict HSPU, and I don’t really care about them — not until I get these other two skills down. Plus, as a woman, it will take a lot of work to get them, just like it is taking hours on the my ring muscle ups, and I just don’t care about them to invest that time. How many times do they show up in a CrossFit WOD? Once. Here. In CrossFit Open workout 19.3. So, yeah, I’m good.
Although it was a short workout, I’m sore — my shoulders especially. Always something with CrossFit.
