CrossFit Open 17.2: Preliminary Analysis

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

17.2 is here and it brought with it more dumbbells, this time in pairs! Bar muscle-ups have also made their return to the Open.

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: 131 reps (3 rounds + 10 lunges + 16 bar muscle-ups + 3 cleans)
Men’s 50th Percentile: 93 reps (2 rounds + 10 lunges + 15 bar muscle-ups)
Women’s 90th Percentile: 115 reps (3 rounds + 10 lunges + 3 bar muscle-ups)
Women’s 50th Percentile: 78 reps (2 rounds + 10 lunges)

You can see in the chart that there are two humps in the distribution. The first is centered around the first set of bar muscle-ups and the second is centered around the second set of bar muscle-ups. You must complete 32 bar muscle-ups in a pretty fatigued state in order to get past the second hump below, which is no easy task.

CrossFit Open 17.1: Preliminary Analysis

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

It’s Saturday morning and hundreds of thousands of CrossFit athletes of all Fitness Levels will be taking a crack at 17.1 this weekend. We compiled some early stats to give you an idea of what you might want to shoot for on this one.

Keep in mind that on any 20 minute workout you should heed the old adage “slow and steady wins the race.” Otherwise, you’re going to look up at the clock 8 minutes in and wish it said 18. We know the 10s and 20s are going to feel great, but don’t give in to the siren call and make the final 12 minutes miserable. Consider yourself warned.

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

Men’s 90th Percentile: 15:56
Men’s 50th Percentile: 19:58
Women’s 90th Percentile: 16:18
Women’s 50th Percentile: 213 reps (3 of the last 15 Burpees)
