CrossFit Open 2017 Workouts and Results

The 2017 CrossFit Open featured five weeks of workouts, starting on February 16, 2017 and ending on March 27, 2017. Each week, CrossFit released a workout, and participants had four days to complete it and upload their score. The workouts were designed to test different aspects of fitness, such as strength, endurance, skill, and power.

The 2017 CrossFit Games Open was a memorable one, as it introduced new elements and challenges. The first workout, 17.1, featured dumbbell snatches and burpee box jump-overs, marking the first time that dumbbells were used in an Open workout. The workout was a brutal test of endurance, power, and agility, as the athletes had to complete increasing reps of snatches and constant reps of burpees within a 20-minute time cap. It also introduced a new Masters 35-39 division, giving more opportunities for older athletes to showcase their abilities and compete with their peers.

The 2017 CrossFit Games Open was a challenging and exciting series of workouts that pushed the athletes to their limits and beyond. It also showcased the diversity and versatility of CrossFit as a sport and a lifestyle. Whether you participated in the Open or just watched from the sidelines, you can learn a lot from the 2017 Open and use it as a motivation and inspiration for your own fitness journey.
