Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

I just want to say that Dave Castro's Instagram hints are VERY oblique.

He posted a photo of The Hunchback of Notre Dame novel and a gargoyle from the Notre Dame cathedral as a hint for 17.1.

For 17.2 the hint was a bunch of koi fish.

I don't get it, even after knowing the workouts.

I looked the others up on Instagram.

Jacob Heppner - knee bursitis
Marcus Filly - helping wife with a newborn baby
Brooke Ence - herniated C6, C7; just woke up one day in pain

I have had the same injury at Ence. It's brutal, and thinking about surgery on that part of the neck if you don't absolutely need it is scary as heck.

They aren't hints. He just posts random pictures and sits back laughing while everyone tries to read into it.

Well, Dave Castro is a prick.

17.1 was hard on the lungs.... I'm hoping for some max 1rm or something so we have a chance against all these Duracell bunnies
At 6'2"/225, 17.2 was without a doubt much easier...of course, i only got 3 bar muscleups, so there's that.

I've already started seeing memes revolving around how Castro could possibly incorporate 3 dumbbells into 17.3, but i just don't see that happening.

Here's hoping for a max lift, or at least a relatively heavy barbell!

I wish more people understood this. SO much. The fervor around figuring out the hints is a waste of time.

I've tried to explain this to everyone that reposts them or asks me about it but some people swear they're clues

Re: 2017 CrossFit Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Anyone else predicting DB thrusters and deadlifts for 17.3?

Maybe thrusters and double unders?

If we see the DB again I wouldn't mind single arm jerks.
