CrossFit Open WOD 16.1

Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 20 minutes of:
25-ft. overhead walking lunge
8 burpees
25-ft. overhead walking lunge
8 chest-to-bar pull-ups
Men lunge 95 lb.
Women lunge 65 lb.
Notes
Prior to starting this workout, each athlete will need to mark a starting point on the floor, measure out 25 feet and make another mark on the floor at the finishing point. Additionally, intermediate marks must be made at every 5-foot interval, each of which represents 1 rep of the lunge.
This workout begins with the barbell resting on the floor near the pull-up bar. At the call of “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete will pick up the barbell and lunge with it overhead for 25 feet. They will then perform 8 burpees, jumping over the barbell on each repetition, before picking the barbell back up and lunging back in the opposite direction. Once back at the pull-up bar, they will perform 8 chest-to-bar pull-ups, and then will head back to the barbell to begin the next round.
Your score will be the total number of repetitions completed before the 20-minute time cap.
Equipment
• Barbell
• Collars
• Plates to load to the appropriate weight for your division
• Pull-up bar
• Measuring tape
For each workout, be sure the athlete has adequate space to safely complete the workout. Clear the area of all extra equipment, people or other obstructions.
*The official weight is in pounds. For your convenience, the minimum acceptable weights in kilograms are 43 kg (95 lb.), 29 kg (65 lb.), 20 kg (45 lb.), and 15 kg (35 lb.). For the lunge, a 7.5-meter length divided into five 1.5-meter sections will be acceptable.

Video Submission Standards
Prior to starting, film the plates and barbell to be used so the loads can be seen clearly. Also film the measurement of the 25-foot lunge area and the 5-foot intermediate marks. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from an angle so all exercises can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards. If the 25-foot lunge area cannot be seen in the frame, athletes will be permitted to lunge back and forth in a smaller area, so long as the 5-foot intervals can still be clearly seen.
