Crossfit Open 17.5 Workout Strategy Guide

The 2017 Crossfit Games Open is here and that means a lot of hard training athletes are ready to push their limits, test their strengths and try to earn bragging rights at their local box for the year.

One of the aspects of Crossfit that I love is the Open. Not only is it a national competition where local athletes legitimately have a shot at making the games, it also puts a cap on these athletes training year. Unlike any other type of training, Crossfit athletes work all year to bring up weaknesses and optimize strengths and now is the time where they get to see what worked and what didn’t.

Without further ado, here’s Open Workout 17.5 and how I would tackle it.

The 17.5 Open Workout Is…

10 Rounds

9 Thrusters

35 Double Unders



My 17.5 Strategy To Dominate 17.5

Don’t Go Too Fast Out Of The Gate
Don't rush. You don't want to mess up on the thrusters or double under or miss reps. Focus on quality.

Pay Attention To Your Shoulders On The Double Unders
Your shoulders will fatigue but try to push the double unders with your wrists, not your shoulders.

Don't Do Too Much Too Soon

Don't crush yourself right out of the gate. Take it slow. It's timed but don't burn out too soon

Transitions Are Key

Transition as fast as possible, don't let the sheer amount of transitions add time. Go fast but be smart.
