The first workout of the 2012 CrossFit Games Open caught everyone by surprise: 7 minutes of burpees. If you came to Vintage today you can attest to how deceivingly difficult this workout is. 12.1 was also the first time CrossFit used the 6″ reach standard for burpees and that definitely threw a lot of people off their game. This workout shows the audacity of the excuse “I don’t have time to workout”. Next time you’re on the road and need a quick workout, 7 minutes of burpees is a good bet!
By the way, the winner of this workout in the worldwide CrossFit Open was an unknown former “artistic acrobat” from Russia, Danila Shokhin. He completed 161 reps.
