We knew 18.1 would feature a never-before-seen movement…and Dave Castro did not disappoint. The newest movement to appear in the CrossFit Open is the “Dumbbell Hang Clean & Jerk”. With just one dumbbell, athletes will be doing five hang clean and jerks and then switching arms to do five more.

The new movement comes in between two common Open elements, toes-to-bar and calories on the rower.

Here is the Rx’d workout:

20-minute AMRAP:
8 Toes-to-Bar
10 Dumbbell Hang Clean & Jerks (5 each arm)
14/12 Calorie Row
