The 1st Open WOD has been announced, and it is:  AMRAP 7mins: Burpees (jump to a 6″ target).  You have two options going into this WOD…you can dread it, tell yourself it’s going to be the worst 7 minutes of your life, or you can own it.  You can make a plan and attack it like it’s the last workout you’ll ever get to do.  We do burpees quite often..how do I know?  Because everyone complains every time we do them.  We also work in the 5-7 minute time domain quite often.  What I’m getting at is you have done this workout before, so act like it.  For the next few hours leading up to your heat time I want you do to one thing:  get your mind right, you’re gonna crush this!
