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 17.4 and how I would tackle it.
The 17.4 Open Workout Is…
8 minute time limit
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 13 minutes of:
55 wall-ball shots
55 handstand push-ups
Men deadlift 225 lb. and throw 20-lb. ball to 10-ft. target
Women deadlift 155 lb. and throw 14-lb. ball to 9-ft. target
My 17.4 Strategy To Dominate 17.4
Don’t Waste Reps
If your form is starting to deteriorate take a quick break. You don’t want nay missed reps and you don’t want to waste energy. Take your time.
Take It Slow
Take your time. While there is a 13 minute time cap don’t rush. 13 minutes is a long time. Focus on every single movement.
Have A Plan
You know what the workout is. Go in with a game plan for how you are going to break up your reps at the start and of each movement.
