Chow down with Dave Castro and the rest of the CrossFit games athletes! Monday night Dave Castro announced the ” Unknown workout” that will kickoff the Start of the CrossFit games 2013 this Wednesday!

Last year Camp Pendleton put our favorite CrossFit Games athletes to the test, but this year will a calm pool show them whose boss? Dave Castro brings word for Day 1 of the CrossFit Games.


CrossFit Games Unknown Workout #1: 

50 yard swim in a pool, followed by 3 bar muscle ups

Sounds easy right? Until you add another 9 rounds, for a total of 10 rounds.

That’s a total of 500 yards swimming, and 30 bar muscle ups.

This should get interesting with athletes being wet from the pool water, and then trying to do bar muscle ups with a wet and much heavier body.


But just in case you think this workout is too easy….There is a second one!


CrossFit Games Unknown Workout #2:

A Half Marathon Rowing Race 21,097 meters for 100 point score

The first 2,000 meters will be another 100 point score
