This workout, like the entire Open, is a test. Tests are the direct result of your training, but should not be mistaken for training. A training workout is one with the goal to help make you more fit. There are specific elements that aim to help you get stronger or faster in some way.
And if tests showcase your fitness, retests in The Open showcase your training. How have you improved? You may find that the weight is more manageable for you. You may find that the burpees don't tire you as much, or you may simply find that changing your strategy from before makes all the difference.
Benchmark workouts are a pillar of CrossFit for the same reason there is always a repeat workout in the Open: to quantify your fitness and to see how you have progressed as an athlete.
Our hope during this Open season, is that you have enjoyed finding your strengths, finding opportunities to improve, and apply that knowledge to your training for the upcoming season. The coaching staff has been watching, listening to you, and building a plan for the next line of programming based off the needs exposed by the Open.
Scouring the leaderboard and comparing scores will never be an effective strategy- mentally or physically. The key to enjoying the Open is to recognize that this is a test of you vs. you. And in order to improve on the next test, you will need to study, or in this case: train (also see: put in work)
