It is natural for us Crossfitters to go on into the wee hours speculating over the Open wods.  I will put together the Open wods from the last three years and do my own speculating for you to think about.

 

11.1 10 min amrap – 30 DU + 15 power snatch (75/55)

11.2 15 min amrap – 9 DL (155/100) + 12 Push ups + 15 box jumps (24/20)

11.3 5 min amrap – max squat clean and jerk (165/110)

11.4 10 min amrap – 60 bar facing burpees + 30 OHS (120/90) + 10 MU

11.5 20 min amrap – 5 power clean (145/100) + 10 T2B + 15 WB (20/14)

11.6 7 min amrap – 3 thruster (100/65) + 3 C2B + 6 thruster + 6 C2B + 9 thruster and so on

 

12.1 7 min amrap – max burpees

12.2 10 min amrap – 30 snatch (75/55) + 30 snatch (135/75) + 30 snatch (165/100) + 30 max snatch (210/120)

13.3 12 min amrap – 150 WB (20/14) + 90 DU + 30 MU

13.4 7 min amrap – 3 C+J (135/95) + 3 T2B + 6 C+J (135/95) + 6 T2B + 9 C+J and so on

wod notes

You can see my scribbles and brainstorming.  So, my speculation is the following:

 

–      I do not see the wod 12.5/11.6 coming up this year.  That combo needs a year off.

–      I do not see the WB, DU, MU wod being repeated for the 3rd year in a row.

–      Movements that are hard to judge are the following: pushups, pullups, knee2elbow, kb swings, HSPU, pistols, dips.

–      The bar muscle up has never been used in an Open – yet I have seen this come up in a ton of competitions lately.

 

HQ has repeated wods from prior years and I believe they will do it again this year.  OHS has not been in the Open for 2 years.  Therefore, I see the 11.4 wod being repeated……or modified, possibly with less weight though.

 

60 bar facing burpees (easy to judge and video)

30 OHS (100/65) (easy to judge and video)

10 MU (easy to judge and video)

 

HOWEVER………  I am also a fan of the burpee-muscle up as the separator wod.  Easy to judge.  You hit your chest, you get to the top……….

 

I have also seen the infamous burpee box jump being quite popular lately.  Will the BJ give athletes issues with proper standards like last year?  Could BJs be skipped this year?  Doubt it.  Look for a 7 min amrap of burpee box jumps for 14.1.

 

Let the speculation begin!
