CrossFit Open WOD 17.5

Dave Castro’s fifth and final strike was a combination of Thrusters and Double Unders.

Open WOD 17.5 RX

10 rounds for time of:
9 thrusters, (43/30kg)
35 double-unders

Scaled:
10 rounds for time of:
9 thrusters (30/20kg)
35 single-unders

This WOD looks a lot easier than it is – especially after the Icelandic Dottirs made it look even easier by finishing in under 7min during the Live Announcement. For the average Joe it was an accomplishment to finish at all within 25min. Especially if you aren’t highly proficient in Double Unders chances were, with your heart rate jacked up from the Thrusters you spent a lot of time untangling your feet from the rope.

But the teams brought their biggest support, their motivation, A-game … and…

…a Godzilla!

The heat was on and the atmosphere was electric as the heats of 8-10 athletes tackled the workout.
