CrossFit Open 20.5


STOP BY AT 4:35 PM to watch the pre-show and the live announcement!

Open Workout 20.5 will be announced on Thursday, November 7th live from Reebok CrossFit One in Boston, Massachusetts.

This week, CrossFit Games veterans Patrick Vellner and Annie Thorisdottir will be battling through the workout live.

The event will also be sponsored by the first Sanctionals™ of the 2019-2020 season, the CrossFit Filthy 150.




 20.5 WOD

For time, partitioned any way:
40 muscle-ups
80-cal. row
120 wall-ball shots, 20-lb. ball to 10 ft.

Time cap: 20 min.


After the call of “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete may perform 40 muscle-ups, 80 calories on the rower, and 120 wall-ball shots. Athletes may perform the movements in any order, and the reps can be divided up in any manner. There are no restrictions on the sequence or combinations of movements, or their corresponding repetitions. The repetitions of one movement do not have to be completed before the athlete can accumulate reps of another movement.

Regardless of where athletes choose to begin the workout, they must start fully standing, not touching any equipment. Only after the call of “3, 2, 1 … go” may the athlete touch the medicine ball, rower, or rings and begin the workout.


This workout includes a tiebreak. If the athlete completes all 240 reps prior to the 20-minute time cap, their score will be their total time, and there will be no tiebreaker.

If the athlete is not able to complete the entire workout in the allotted time, a tiebreaker will be factored into their final score. Note the time when the athlete completes 80 calories on the rower and 120 wall-ball shots, regardless of how they choose to break up the work. When the athlete submits their score, there will be a space for their final rep count and an additional field for them to enter the elapsed time at which they completed the rowing and wall balls. In the case where two athletes have the same score (total number of reps), the athlete with the lower tiebreak time will be ranked higher. Do NOT use a countdown timer.
