Regional competitor Tama Cooper completed CrosssFit Open 15.1 just hours after it was announced by Dave Castro on February 16 in Boston.

After watching Mat Fraser and Rich Froning go head-to-head in the live workout announcement, Cooper had an idea of how to tackle the workout.

We filmed Cooper prior to CrossFit Open 15.1 at CrossFit Marrickville in Sydney, Australia. We got his initial thoughts, then sat down with him right after he completed the Open workout getting his tips, advice and strategy on tackling both the 9 minute AMRAP, and the max effort Clean & Jerk.

Check out the video above to find out his workout advice for CrossFit Open 15.1.
