This Year’s Repeat Open Workout: Only 4 Options Available

The inaugural CrossFit Open kicked off in 2011, and in every proceeding year we have seen a workout repeated. In 2012 12.5 was a repeat of 11.6. 13.3 was a repeat of 12.4. 14.1 was a repeat of the very first workout in the Open (11.1), and 15.2 matched 14.2 from the year prior. The idea of course is to give athletes the ability to compare their fitness over a given period; How much did you improve since the last time you did that workout?

We haven’t seen a repeat workout yet in this year’s Open, but it’s pretty safe to assume that it’s coming. Can we anticipate what it might be? If we look at the movements we’ve already seen in the three workouts up to this point, and we assume we won’t see any of those movements used again, we can narrow the options down.

The general consensus in the CrossFit community is that we’ll be seeing a repeat of 15.5 in one of the two remaining Open workout. It’s hard to argue that 15.5 was one of the toughest Open workouts to day—one that a lot of people would hate to redo—hence, why Dave Castro may just program it in. Which workout do you think will be repeated?
