Crossfit Games: The Open 2017

46 posts in this topic

Main site and CF mail of the day were about Dumbbell Step-ups. I think it's too obvious. DB Snatches are a bit weird as a move. I'm all for DB Thrusters but pretty sure if any thrusters are involved, they'll be with a barbell. I'd put my money on single-arm clean and presses.

I agree, for DB step ups I don't think the weight is heavy enough.

 

It's going to be hard to judge a DB clean and press though. Plus he posted that photo of a barbell clip in a washbag 2 weeks ago which I thought might be a clean....

 

The DB's could be as simple as DB ground to overhead.

Crossfit main site just posted a how-to on doing dumbbell overhead walking lunges.  That sounds even worse than last year's barbell version.....

My coach reckons these are what will be in the Open, we practised them on Saturday, they are hard!

 

I'm still wondering if it might be ground to overhead but it's usually something easier to judge, which OH walking lunges would be.

We did one arm kettlebell thrusters on Saturday, I can see that with dumbbells on one or both hands happening. Also, don't shoot, but I like it better than G2OH

"I like" and "Thrusters" don't ever go in a sentence together....!

As far as I know, the only way to watch is to stream at games.crossfit.com

You can definitely watch the announcements live on the games site and they post the archives fairly quickly after the announcements as Youtube vids on their channel. 

 

I think some of it is on Facebook this year, the Ro vs Bos hype stuff. It looks pretty fun this year, they made a promotional vid based on the Matrix that was a pretty cool.

To my knowledge, TV only covers the Games. Open workout announcements, including two (sometimes three) athletes taking a first shot at them, are only streamed online. You can watch them at games.crossfit.com or YouTube and they stay there for you to watch past livestreaming too. Ro vs Boz happens right after the show and it's usually streamed via Facebook. Not sure if they changed something this year.

Spolier!!! I'm literally about to watch Ro vs Bos at this second!!!

 

When he said 20 min cap my heart sank. I'm not expecting to finish which means it's going to be 20 mins of awfulness, but at least I can Rx. Going to be be hard on my shoulders and lower back though. 

 

I think the sneaky Castro might have another Dumbbell wod in there somewhere that'll be his big surprise.
