Welcome back to our #WorkoutoftheWeek posts. Let’s get right into it as we have the Open WOD from the CrossFit Open back in 2015 with a slew of muscle-ups, double unders and wall balls. Talk about a deep arm and shoulder burn….

Let’s take a look at the workout and recap it down below in terms of strategy. Anyone out there remember this one?

Read more from the Open Workout 15.3 on CrossFit.com here.

7 Muscle-Ups
50 Wall Balls (20/14 lb)
100 Double-Unders

Men use 20-lb. ball to 10 feet, Women use 14-lb. ball to 9 feet

After the last double-under, the athlete will move back to the rings and begin the next round. Score will be the total number of repetitions completed before the 14-minute time cap.

Workout 15.3 from the CrossFit Open


Welcome back to our weekly series here. If you remember this workout from the 2015 CrossFit Open you probably remember a bit of shoulder fatigue, too. With the muscle-ups, wall balls and double unders, this workout is the pain train. There’s no time to recover here and it will test you throughout the 14-minutes. Some athletes will be able to truck through all of this in the 14-minutes, others will hit a wall, and some people may be working on their muscle-ups for 14-minutes.

Either way, look at the scaling options down below and figure out where you might have the ability to get the most work done. There is NO SHAME in scaling down for this workout if you can’t do the first 7 muscle-ups…..better to scale down and do pull-ups so you can keep it moving.

Either way, add this one to the programming schedule and continually test your gymnastics and aerobics in one fell swoop. Great workout, and don’t forget to submit a workout of the week down below the scaling standards for this Open workout from 15.3.
