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 17.3 and how I would tackle it.
The 17.3 Open Workout Is…
8 minute time limit
3 rounds of:
6 chest-to-bar pull-ups
6 squat snatches, 95 lb / 65 lb
Then, 3 rounds of:
7 chest-to-bar pull-ups
5 squat snatches, 135 lb / 95 lb
*Prior to 12:00, complete 3 rounds of:
8 chest-to-bar pull-ups
4 squat snatches, 185 lb / 135 lb
*Prior to 16:00, complete 3 rounds of:
9 chest-to-bar pull-ups
3 squat snatches, 225 lb / 155 lb
*Prior to 20:00, complete 3 rounds of:
10 chest-to-bar pull-ups
2 squat snatches, 245 lb / 175 lb
Prior to 24:00, complete 3 rounds of:
11 chest-to-bar pull-ups
1 squat snatch 265 lb / 185 lb
My 17.3 Strategy To Dominate 17.3
1: Complete a full snatch
Take your time with each rep, every single snatch rep is going to count. Make sure that you know you can complete the rep. Try not to waste reps here.
2: Have your friends switch your weights
Save time, have you friends switch the weights for you.
3: Don't burn out on chest to bar
These reps add up quickly. Don't let the chest to bars fatigue you too quickly.
