Mat Fraser had one of, if not the most, dominating performances at the 2016 CrossFit Games. After back-to-back 2nd place finishes followed by the title in 2016, Fraser is the hands down favorite heading into 2017.

Since Fraser’s win, his Instagram account has been filled with non-CrossFit things like water skiing, boating, attending weddings (three weeks in a row) and getting a one-of-a-kind pair of gold Nike Metcons.

But after a little over a month off serious training it looks like Fraser is ready to defend his title in 2017. With the simple caption, “Getting back at it,” Fraser is shown hitting a heavy back squat.

Sure, the Games just ended and we are heading into the off-season competitions, but who else is excited for the 2017 CrossFit Open to come around?
