OPEN 19.2
Beginning on a 8 min clock, complete as many reps as possible of:
25 Toes-to-bars
50 Double Unders
15 Squat Cleans, 135/85 lbs
25 Toes-to-bars
50 Double Unders
13 Squat Cleans, 185/115 lbs

If completed before 8 mins, add 4 mins to the clock and proceed to:
25 Toes-to-bars
50 Double Unders
11 Squat Cleans, 225/145 lbs

If completed before 12 mins, add 4 mins to the clock and proceed to:
25 Toes-to-bars
50 Double Unders
9 Squat Cleans, 275/175 lbs

If completed before 16 mins, add 4 mins to the clock and proceed to:
25 Toes-to-bars
50 Double Unders
7 Squat Cleans, 315/205 lbs

Stop at 20 mins.

19.2 is the same workout as 16.2, except with a slight time cap change. Back in 2016, you had 4 minutes to get through the first round of 25 toes-to-bars, 50 double unders, and 15 squat cleans at 135/85 lbs. If you didn’t finish before the the 4 minutes was up, you were capped and your workout was over. This year, the first time cap has been removed and athletes now get 8 minutes total to get through the first 2 rounds before they can be capped.

By now, we’ve had thousands of awesome athletes submit their scores on CrossFit btwb already, giving us enough data to calculate some preliminary percentiles you can use as targets.
