Past Open Events Review

I’m sure someone else has done this to death, but I am going to do this anyway. I was going to write it down, so why not do it on my blog and maybe someone else can enjoy?

Are there any trends over the years? If the point of CrossFit is to get fitter, then we should be re-doing events every year, or at least every other year to see if we are, in fact, getting fitter. What is the chance that 15.1 is a repeat of past years to test your fitness?

2011:

  • 11.1: AMRAP10 of 30 double-unders and 15 snatches (75/55)
  • 11.2: AMRAP15 of 9 deadlifts (155/100), 12 pushup, 15 box jumps (24/20)
  • 11.3: AMRAP5 of squat clean and jerk (165/110)
  • 11.4: AMRAP10 of 60 bar facing burpees, 30 overhead squats (120/90) and 10 muscle-ups
  • 11.5: AMRAP20 of 5 power cleans (145/110), 10 toes-to-bar, 15 wall ball (20/14 to 10/9 foot target)
  • 11.6: AMRAP7 of 3 thruster (100/65), 3 chest-to-bar pullups, 6 thruster, 6 C2B, 9 and 9, etc

2012:

  • 12.1: AMRAP7 of burpees to 6 inch target
  • 12.2: AMRAP10 of 30 snatches (75/45), 30 snatches (135/75), 30 snatches (165/100), AMRAP snatch (210/120)
  • 12.3: AMRAP18 of 15 box jump (24/20), 12 push press (115/75) and 9 toes-to-bar
  • 12.4: AMRAP12 of 150 wall ball (20/14 to 10/9 target), 90 double-unders and 30 muscle-ups
  • 12.5: REPEAT of 11.6

2013

  • 13.1: AMRAP17 of 40 burpees (to 6 inch target), 30 snatches (75/45), 30 burpees, 30 snatches (135/75), 20 burpees, 30 snatches (165/100), 10 burpees, AMRAP snatches (210/120) – sort of a mixture of 12.1 and 12.2. Not a repeat that you could compare and test your improved fitness.
  • 13.2: AMRAP10 of 5 shoulder to overhead (115/75), 10 deadlift (115/75) and 15 box jump (24/20)
  • 13.3: REPEAT of 12.4
  • 13.4: AMRAP7 of 3 clean and jerk (135/75), 3 toes-to-bar, 6 C&J, 6 T2B, 9 and 9, etc
  • 13.5: AMRAP4 of 15 thrusters (100/65) and 15 chest-to-bar pullups – if three rounds are completed, extend the time to 8 minutes and if nine rounds are completed, extend to 12 minutes, etc

2014

  • 14.1: REPEAT of 11.1
  • 14.2: From 0-3min, 2 rounds of 10 overhead squat (95/65), 10 chest-to-bar pullup – if 2 rounds are completed, then from 3-6min 2 rounds of 12 OHS and 12 C2B, if completed then from 9-12min 14/14, etc
  • 14.3: AMRAP8 of 10 deadlift (135/95), 15 box jump (24/20), 15 deadlift (185/135), 15 BJ, 20 deadlift (225/155), 15 BJ, 25 DL (275/185), 15 BJ, 30 DL (315/205), 15 BJ, 35 DL (365/225), 15 BJ
  • 14.4: AMRAP14 of 60 cal row, 50 toes-to-bar, 40 wall ball (20/14 to a 10/9 target), 30 clean and jerk (135/95) and 20 muscle-ups
  • 14.5: 21-18-15-12-9-6-3 of thrusters (95/65) and bar facing burpees

Every year there is a repeat. What will the repeat be this year? Every year there has been a repeat, but it isn’t always the first WOD, or second or third – it is random (seemingly).

In 2012 there was a repeat from 2011. In 2013 there was a repeat from 2012. And in 2014 there was a repeat from 2013….errr…nope….2011. The repeat hasn’t necessarily been from the previous year.

I thought this last year and I will say it again this year, I think the first WOD will be a repeat of 12.1 – 7 minutes of burpees. That was so awful that I think Dave Castro would love to see everyone do it again. Could you imagine watching Rich Froning and Mat Fraser do 7 minutes of burpees? BORING. That would be the genius of it, however. Everyone will expect something heavy with these two going head-to-head and Castro could throw the CrossFit world on its head by doing a basic body weight movement.

What do you think 15.1 will be? Will it be a repeat? Will we repeat a WOD in 2015? If so, which one? Your pick doesn’t have to be for 15.1. Maybe we repeat 14.2 sometime this year. 14.2 was pretty awful and frustrating.
