JPCF Family Taking On 19.5: we WOD together, we rip together

By Jasmine Gerritsen | In Blog, Challenges, WOD | on March 26, 2019

And so the 2019 CrossFit open comes to a bloody close. “Why bloody” you ask? “Chest-to-bar- pull-ups” I answer. In this post you will find a plethora (nice word right?) of quotes and accounts of amazing accomplishments, as well as many images to help memorialize the end of the open.  Thank you all for devoting your time, love, and effort to helping us continue to build such a wonderful community!

The Accomplishments

-Rich, John, and Martin finished RX in under the time cap. How? We are all unsure

-Melissa got her first chest to bar #crusheditliterally

-Kyle planned on getting 4 or 5 chest to bar and ended up finishing the first round and some thrusters!

-Joya found that the most efficient way to do the WOD is to move from bar to bar in a zig-zag fashion

– So many people finished scaled that I can’t even figure out the total number!

-Laura got her first chest-to-bar pull-up…then did 29 of them

– The Joya method was heavily used by many athletes to get their chest to bar. It requires you to double or even triple leg kip up!

-Sarah B. got her first chest to bar (thanks to the Joya method)

– Will dripped blood all over the floor and bar-surfaces. It was as gruesome as it was epic #Crossfit

– Leanna’s hands…did she really rip them on a bar? Or did she accidentally put them through a meat grinder? We will never truly know

– Eric and Melissa’s dog made a guest appearance.

-Stella finished Friday Night Lights with some famous hits.That’s right! We got some Cardi and Britney #cardi4ever #itsbritneyb*tch

-Tim, Andy, Sarah B. and Ally were among a few of the brave souls who dared to re-do the WOD

-Janelle used a very particular technique (potentially only doable by a human bearing another small human within them), whereby she threw her chest upward to meet the bar, as the rest of her torso began falling downward. Other’s were quite envious about the ease with which she completed her chest-to-bars

The Witty Banter

– Ally on why they are re-doing the WOD “It’s not super enginey you know…more like sprint enginey”

-Tim in trying to positively coach Jenna “just go to that dark place”. Jenna “I’m already there!”

-Renee’s judge to Renee “You only have regular Fran left”. Renee “NO.”

-Meagan to Meredith, “Are you going to do RX”. Meredith with a look of offense “absolutely not”

-Leanna on using her love for gadgets to help her recover from 19.5 “My shipment of hand care products should get here just as I don’t need them anymore. The brand is called Ript…get it? Ript?”
