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!]
“Chest-to-bar and thrusters”
“Something gymnasty. Maybe a repeat of Chest-to-Bar and Overhead Squat.”
My love for burpees are too strong to not redo this workout #17point1 #BurpeesForLife 💕 Epic save on the second to last rep – soooo close to face planting🤦🏼♀️ #YesIWasALittleTired #ButDidNotDie – – Thank you @coachnili for screaming at me the whole time, I was too scared to slow down😈 – – @crossfitgames #InTheOpen @reeboknordics #BeMoreHuman @purepharma @apexklinikken @crossfitoslo #InvictusAthlete
AMRAP 10-12 minutes
15 Deadlifts (ascending weight)
“Chest-to-Bar, Rowing & Thrusters”
“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 Power Cleans (185/125)
“16.4 in reverse order”
“Repeat of 16.2, although I really don’t want it to be true.”
The Barbell Spin’s Prediction
10 Power Snatch 135/95
