Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread
 
They did a burpee/thruster couplet last year, so I don't think that'll happen. But I have been wondering when those two movements might show up. Also missing: box jumps, row. After using a C2 rower last year, I figured that would have to show up this year. I really thought this year would feature Triple-Unders, since that has shown up on mainsite a lot in the past couple years (and would take advantage of the RX division).

Predictions:
15-min. AMRAP
box jumps
thrusters
burpees

or maybe something with a row instead...

i am sticking to my prediction of a chipper:

60 cal row
50 box jumps
40 burpees
30 heavyish thursters

Kinda hoping I am right and kind of not.

You might see another for time style workout.....

21-18-15-12-9-6-3
Thrusters
Burpee Box Jump Overs

followed by a row some set distance or calories

Intact you may see the row before that or in between each set say for 20 cals

Buckle up though because whatever it is will bring on the worst suck of the whole five weeks, just like every other year.

If I was in charge, we'd have the following:

15.5- 3 minutes- max pistols.
15.5a- Clock still running-
Chipper for time: 60 cal row, 50 burpees, 40 box jumps (24/20), 30 thrusters (155/105), 20 pistols (alternating leg), 10 bar muscle ups. 40 minute time cap, 1 second per missed rep. Score is total time (including the 3 minute pistol buy-in)

Got to remember recording time issues.

Bold prediction :rofl:

People need to cool it with the triple unders. They're a circus trick, they've never even been in regionals or the games, they're not going to put them in the open...

I'd say there's a non-zero chance Castro gets lazy and says 15.5 is 14.5.

Oh I agree. That's why I wouldn't be surprised. :)

"Here we go! Fourteen minutes of walking lunges!" Ha!

... yet, not so different from seven minutes of burpees ...
