Poll: Predicting 15.5 – Week 5 of the CrossFit Open?

With just one week left of the 2015 CrossFit Games Open the guessing game has begun on what we might see in the final workout – 15.5.

There a number of common functional fitness movements we are yet to see so far this Open, including box jumps, burpees, thrusters, pistols and a row to name a few. Going on past years it’s fair to assume some of those movements will be including in the programming for the final week of the Open. However, Games Director Dave Castro does have a knack of throwing up curveballs so who knows, maybe we won’t see any of them in the final workout?

As well as the movements, many people are now speculating as to how they will be included into the programming. Some are suggesting we may see a snatch ladder or a one rep max addition as we did in week one. While others are predicting burpees over the bar or even box jumpovers.

In addition, there is also the live workout announcements to keep in mind. Of course, there is every chance the workouts could be tailored to be ‘crowd friendly’ in which something like a row might not be included.

This week we will see three former Games champions in Sam Briggs, Annie Thorisdottir and Camille Leblanc-Bazinet compete in the 15.5 live workout announcement at Zach Forrest’s affiliate, CrossFit Max Effort in Las Vegas, Nervada. So could we see a workout suited to thier strenghts? We will have to wait and see, but for now we can at least guess!

Cast a vote in the above poll and tell us what movement(s) you think we will see in the fifth and final week of the 2015 CrossFit Open: 15.5.
