Analysis of Open Workout 24.1

### CrossFit Open 2024 Week 1 Recap

The first week of the 2024 CrossFit Open kicked off with a challenging couplet of dumbbell snatches and lateral burpees over the dumbbell. Athletes were required to complete a total of 90 reps of each movement within a 15-minute time cap. This year’s workout featured a unique twist on the rep scheme, with two sets of each movement at each rep level instead of the usual one.

Athletes faced a new challenge in Open Workout 24.1, as they had to complete all dumbbell snatches on the same arm for a given rep level, perform the burpees, and then switch arms for the next set. The inclusion of lateral burpees over a dumbbell was a first in Open history, adding a fresh element to the competition.
