Well, 17.1 brought us (and is still bringing) the dumbbells. And while some predicted dumbbell snatches, no one saw the nasty dumbbell snatch and burpee box jump over couplet that Dave Castro gave us to kick off the start of the 2017 CrossFit Games season.

As the deadline approaches for 17.1 today, we are already looking ahead to 17.2 because no one is possibly going to re-re-do the workout on Wednesday (right???).

Let’s see what some of the top performers from 17.1 think we will see Thursday night! [UPDATE: Here’s what 17.2 is!]

Kristi Eramo

“Chest-to-bar and thrusters”


Paul Castillo

“16.2 repeat”


Kristin Holte

“Something gymnasty. Maybe a repeat of Chest-to-Bar and Overhead Squat.”


Travis Mead

AMRAP 10-12 minutes
15 Deadlifts (ascending weight)
7 Muscle-Ups
50 Double-Unders

“I think a workout with some reps in a short ‘window’ and if the work is completed in that time, you advance to a second ‘window’.”

12 Toes-to-Bar
