This workout begins with the barbell on the floor and the athlete standing tall. After the call of “3, 2, 1… go,” the athlete may pick up the barbell and perform 8 ground-to-overheads then 10 bar-facing burpees for 10 rounds. Step-up burpees are allowed.

The workout marked the first time the "ground-to-overhead" movement appeared in the CrossFit Open. In a video posted to his Instagram, Director of the Games Dave Castro @thedavecastro explained that the rep scheme for 20.1 was specifically tailored in a way to force the most-competitive athletes to snatch the weight in order to net the fastest time possible, while allowing beginner and intermediate athletes the option to clean-and-jerk or clean-and-press.
As the largest participatory sporting event in the world, the CrossFit Open is an opportunity for athletes of all levels - from beginner to elite - to compete and test their fitness. Top finishers from each country earn an invitation to the 2020 CrossFit Games.
