Awesome turnout for the first Open workout 15.1 on Saturday morning (nice to have Sue drop in as well) If you couldn’t make it, 15.1 is the WOD today for every class. Registrations for the Open close on Tuesday before 2pm so it’s not too late to get amongst it. You won’t regret it!
If possible, let me know if you’re wanting to enter the Open ahead of arriving at a class, to help us organize heats.
Also, as always there are scaled options for the workout.

There’s been just 15 movements come out in the open over the last 4 years. Looking at the chart, only one of them wasn’t included in the first open in 2011. With the addition of Rx and scaled options starting this year, will that bring a few new movements to the open? The answer to that may come this Friday…
Weighted pull up 4 x 3 rep
21, 15, 9 reps, for time.
