CrossFit Open 17.5: Preliminary Analysis

This is part of a series on The CrossFit Games 2017 Open Workouts. For more, checkout: 17.5 Final Analysis, 17.4 Final Analysis, 17.3 Final Analysis, 17.2 Final Analysis, 17.1 Final Analysis.

17.5 is 90 thrusters and 350 double unders. So after you complete all the thrusters in Fran, you still have all the thrusters in Fran left to do 😦

The following percentiles are based on several thousand results that have already been posted to BTWB. These percentiles may change slightly as the weekend progresses and more scores are entered into the system.

Men’s 90th Percentile: 11:18
Men’s 50th Percentile: 16:48
Women’s 90th Percentile: 11:46
Women’s 50th Percentile: 18:12

This workout is tough. Anyone finishing sub-20 should be pretty happy with their result. To be competitive for regionals, you need to be in the low 8:00s or sub 8:00.

CrossFit Open 17.4: Preliminary Analysis

This is part of a series on The CrossFit Games 2017 Open Workouts. For more, checkout: 17.4 Final Analysis, 17.3 Final Analysis, 17.2 Final Analysis, 17.1 Final Analysis.

17.4 is 16.4. Many of you have done this before and probably still have nightmares about that crazy HSPU tape standard (which we all know becomes nearly impossible to hit when fatigued).

Since this is a repeat, we have a lot of data already in the system for this one. More than half of the field will finish on the HSPUs, so every rep there is vitally important (see below).

The following percentiles are based on several thousand results that have already been posted to BTWB. These percentiles may change slightly as the weekend progresses and more scores are entered into the system.

Men’s 90th Percentile: 202 reps
Men’s 50th Percentile: 173 reps
Women’s 90th Percentile: 193 reps
Women’s 50th Percentile: 165 reps

The first graphic is from the final CrossFit Games results from last year. The next two are Rx’d and Scaled distributions from current BTWB data.

CrossFit Open 17.3: Preliminary Analysis

This is part of a series on The CrossFit Games 2017 Open Workouts. For more, checkout: 17.3 Final Analysis, 17.2 Final Analysis, 17.1 Final Analysis.

17.3 is chest-to-bar pull-ups and barbell snatches. A lot of them. Dave Castro is finally letting us touch a barbell.

The following percentiles are based on several thousand results that have already been posted to BTWB. These percentiles may change slightly as the weekend progresses and more scores are entered into the system.

Men’s 90th Percentile: 96 reps (Completed 2nd round 0f 185)
Men’s 50th Percentile: 59 reps (4 snatches on the 2nd round of 135)
Women’s 90th Percentile: 81 reps (1 snatch on the 1st round of 135)
Women’s 50th Percentile: 48 reps (5 snatches on the 1st round of 95)

There are two major roadblocks, one at 44 reps (135/95# snatch) and one 81 reps (185/135# snatch). For the vast majority of athletes it will be about how many reps they can get at 135/95, and every rep will have a big impact on placing.17-3-prelim-dist.jpg
