Workouts are released on Thursday, and participants have until the following Monday to either submit a video online or get their workout judged in person at a CrossFit box.
The CrossFit Open is a part of the larger annual CrossFit Games. Once the CrossFit Open is complete, the top athletes are invited to participate in the regionals. From there, the cream of the CrossFit crop will compete at the CrossFit Games, which will be held in Carson, California this year.
