THE 2015 OPEN IS HERE...
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 9 minutes of: 15 toes-to-bars 10 deadlifts (115 / 75 lb.) 5 snatches (115 / 75 lb.)
1-rep-max clean and jerk 6-minute time cap
Notes These workouts begin with the athlete standing under their pull-up bar with the barbell loaded to the appropriate weight. After 15 toes-to-bars (sit-ups or hanging knee raises for scaled divisions) are completed the athlete will move to the barbell to perform 10 deadlifts followed by 5 snatches. After the last snatch is completed the athlete will move back to the pull-up bar and start their next round.
Your score for Workout 15.1 will be the total number of repetitions completed.
As soon as the clock reaches 9 minutes and Workout 15.1 is complete, Workout 15.1a will begin with the same running clock. The athlete will have from 9:00 to 15:00 to complete Workout 15.1a.
The same barbell must be used for both 15.1 and 15.1a. The athlete must load their own barbell and may not receive assistance. Prior to each lift you must state what weight you are about to attempt. Plates smaller than 1⁄2 lb. may not be used. There is no limit to the number of attempts within the 6-minute time limit.
Your score for Workout 15.1a will be the weight (in pounds) that you successfully clean and jerk.
Should the athlete choose to redo the workout, you must withdraw your scores for both 15.1 and 15.1a and resubmit both scores from the second attempt. You may not use your score from your first attempt at 15.1 and your score from your second attempt at 15.1a or vice versa.
Special Tiebreak Your score for Workout 15.1a will be the weight of your heaviest successful clean and jerk. Scores will be recorded in one pound increments. If there is a tie at the exact same weight, lighter athletes will rank above heavier athletes. The body weight posted on your profile will be the weight used to break your tie, divided into 10-lb. classes; e.g. 180-189, 190-199, 200-209, etc.
Affiliates will be responsible for validating that an athlete’s body weight is within their weight class. If an athlete opts not to submit their body weight they will still have a valid score for Workout 15.1a, but they will be ranked lower than athletes that lifted the same amount of weight and also submitted their body weight.
Equipment • Pull-up bar • Barbell • Collars • Plates to load to the appropriate weight for your division for Workout 15.1 • Plates to load for your max clean and jerk (no smaller than ½ lb.)
For each workout, be sure the athlete has adequate space to safely complete the event. Clear the area of all extra plates, people or other obstructions.
*The official weight is in pounds. For your convenience, the minimum acceptable weights for Workout 15.1 in kilograms are 52 / 34 kg for Rx’d, 38 / 25 kg for Scaled, Masters and Teens, and 29 / 20 kg for Scaled Masters and Scaled Teens. If you lift with kilogram plates you will need to convert your results to pounds when submitting your score. Remember, when lifting with pound plates a 20-kg barbell will count as 45 lb. and a 15-kg barbell will count as 35 lb.
Video Submission Standards Prior to starting, film the plates and barbell to be used so the loads can be seen clearly. 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.
