But I have learned that I know nothing of what DC says on Thursdays.

Will be fun to do and watch. Just need to close the show.

Vic-
My idea was a twist on 14.5 with burpees and progressively heavier thrusters
21 95/65
18 115/75
15 135/85
12 155/95
9 175/105
6 195/115
3 215/125

Of course it would a little bit nastier to turn those burpees into burpee box jumps.

I think thats going throw Rich's head, winning the games without winning it

And also fraser is thinking about it...for sure.

Was thinking the same thing. About the only 3 left. Maybe they combine the burpee and box jumps, make them burpee box jump overs and thrusters.

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

What would be great is if Castro and company threw a spanner in the works and threw in a 15.5a after they were done with the first workout.

This would mean that none of them have saved anything for later thus nobody can plan anything! a bit like double grace at the end of the 2015 games.

This would really mess things up and we would see a mass change in the leaderboard making both the men's and women's final result very exciting .

The only people who wouldn't know about it would be the 3 girls competing that night; and they would almost definitely redo the workout a couple days later.

Wouldn't really change anything as far as the leaderboards go.

I agree, and it would be a little dishonest. The Games is different because it's expected somewhat. But for the Open it is all about planning and adapting to the workout. To let 269,997 know the full workout when they do it and 3 not know, that's not really fair. I understand they all do multiple workouts but if they push 100% it takes a day or two to recover. It wouldn't be great in my opinion!

Vic
Vic,
Every time you predict something you like to see, I'm just thinking, "Please, no!"

Heavy thrusters? Nope.

HSPU? Nope.

Pistols? ... okay, I could go for that, maybe.

You like stuff that I don't.

If Fraser (or Panchik, or a few others) wins the Games, I don't think it lessens their achievement at all just because Rich isn't competing as an individual.

Going into the last two workouts of the 2014 Games, Fraser was within three places of beating Froning. Panchik gave Rich a run for his money at Regionals last year. There are competitors that are arguably as good as Rich.

We're at an interesting place in the development of the sport. Some of these athletes are "retiring" or withdrawing from individual competition, but they're still fit enough to be killing it in the Open. When they've been so involved in the community for years, they don't disappear or cease to have a presence. It's interesting.

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

I have 2 guesses for 15.5:

1. 3 rounds, 2 minutes at each station, no rest or transition time, score is total reps.
Thrusters (weight increases each round: 95-115-135)
Burpee box jumps
Bar Muscle ups

2. For time:
50 cal row
40 bar facing burpees
30 thrusters
20 box jump overs
10 bar muscle ups

I could also see pistols show up or lateral bar hops show up in 15.5 somehow.

I could also see a 15.5a show up, like the c2b in the Team Series: 2x ME set of c2b with a 1min rest inbetween.

Re: 2015 CrossFit Open, Regionals, and Games Thread

My guess for 15.5 with what remains:

AMRAP of:
-Thrusters of ascending weight
-Burpee box jump overs.

This would be kind of like the DL/BJ workout last Open, or the Snatch/burpee from 2 years ago.

With a 15.5a of max cal row in X min.

Feel like they need to do something to balance out the 1RM.
