WOD Thu 4-4-13 (CFGames Open WOD #5)

Tonight at 6:00PM will be our main competition run of the 5th and final CrossFit Games Open workout for this season!  If you are not competing we will still do the same movements but we will scale as necessary.

Now this is teamwork!  Question – do you get credit for a quad-under if you are successful?

Notes

Please be sure to watch the entire workout instruction video (here).

This workout begins from the standing position with the barbell on the floor and the Athlete standing tall. Using a ball, box or other object to check for proper depth is not allowed. Every rep counts in this workout. You will enter your score as the total number of reps. See the Scorecard for assistance in calculating the rep total.

Time Bonus

This workout begins as a standard four-minute AMRAP of 15 thrusters and 15 chest-to-bar pull-ups. If the Athlete completes 90 reps (three complete rounds) before the time cap, there is a four-minute time bonus. The workout is now an eight-minute AMRAP.

The Athlete can continue working as fast as possible (i.e. there is no requirement to rest or wait until four minutes are up). For example, if an athlete completes three rounds in 3:00, their time is extended to 8:00 and they can immediately begin working on their fourth round, with five minutes remaining.

Now, if the Athlete completes 180 reps (six complete rounds) before the eight-minute time cap, there is another four-minute time bonus. The workout is now a 12-minute AMRAP. If the Athlete completes 270 reps (9 complete rounds) before the 12-minute mark, the workout becomes a 16-minute AMRAP. This pattern repeats indefinitely, as long as an additional 90 reps are completed before the time cap.

Further explanation of the bonus time can be found here.
