Preparing for the 24.3 CrossFit Open Workout

With the unveiling of the CrossFit Open workout 24.3, there’s a widespread sense of anticipation and a touch of dread as thrusters make a comeback for the final week of the competition. Revealed by retired Navy SEAL and current entrepreneur Jocko Willink, on the CrossFit Games YouTube channel, this workout is set to challenge even the fittest CrossFit athletes.

Among the first to tackle the CrossFit Open 24.3 were athletes Arielle Loewen, Roman Khrennikov, Jay Crouch, and Sydney Wells. Their participation followed the last-minute withdrawal of Tia-Clair Toomey-Orr due to a wrist injury. Despite her absence from this workout, the six-time champion still intends to complete the workout over the weekend and participate in the 2024 CrossFit season.

Top Tips and Tricks for CrossFit Open Workout 24.3

If you’re wondering how to master this CrossFit Open workout, we’ve got you covered. PZL Programming‘s head CrossFit coach Alex Conroy shares his top tips and tricks on how to ace workout 24.3.

What Does CrossFit Open Workout 24.3 Involve?

For the committed athlete, the workout involves five rounds for time, including ten thrusters (95lb/43kg for men, 65lb/29kg for women) and ten chest-to-bar pull-ups. After a one-minute rest, the next five rounds for time consist of seven thrusters (135lb/61kg for men, 95lb/43kg for women) and seven bar muscle-ups. Compared to the rest of the 2024 CrossFit Open workouts, this one is particularly challenging.
