CrossFit Open Workout 18.2 - here´s your guideline how to crush it!

GoPrimal Tipps for NON-ELITE Athletes in 18.2.
Workout 18.2
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 reps for time of:
Dumbbell squats
Bar-facing burpees

Men use 22,5kg dumbbells

Workout 18.2a
1-rep-max clean

Time cap: 12 minutes to complete 18.2 AND 18.2a
Before you even start the workout play around with the Placement of the Dumbells in the DB Squat. Tilting them slightly back, may help you to stay a bit more upright in your squats - find something that works well for you.
The goal in this Workout is to keep the Squats unbroken - Rest at the top if necessary, but don’t put the dumbells down. Getting a good pacing on the burpee is mandatory, if you need a bit more rest jump up and do 1-2 steps towards the bar before you jump. Keep moving.
Don’t kill yourself in the middle rounds - my recommendation is to not start out to fast, but get a consistent pace on the burpee. Try to finish below 6min so that you have ample time for Part a.
Warm-Up well with the Clean and get yourself up to a weight around 70% of your 1RM, the first rep after finishing 18.2 will feel super heavy, but will get better. Take a bit higher jumps initially and aim for doing around 3 to max 5 Cleans.
Now go and Crush 18.2.
Good Luck,
