Part 1: 15.1

As the Open draws to a close (Monday at 8 PM to be exact), most members are relieved to be finished with the five workouts and ready to resume regular programming.   If you finished all of the workouts: Congratulations! Without a doubt, these workouts were some of the toughest we have done in the past few years.

Whether you did RX’D or Scaled, it was your first or fourth Open, we hope that you had fun, but also pushed your limits. If you discovered that the Open workouts highlighted your CrossFit weaknesses, you will be able to use your WOD scores and rankings to refocus your training for 2016.

In the tables below, the percentage on the left is the percent of the total registered male or female competitors who completed that number of reps or fewer during the WOD. The percentiles are calculated based on the total number of people who registered. Those who skipped a WOD or WOD’s are treated as having done zero reps. Consistent with CrossFit’s approach, 1 rep Rx’d is ranked above any number of reps scaled.

The best way to think about this data is to see it as the snapshot of where you were during the Open. (Even if you did not submit your results, you can still use this chart and those that will follow.)

As we present more information in subsequent posts, we will explain how you can go about setting goals for next year (and you can see how you progress each time we program one of these WOD’s). The Open results are critical for how we do the next year’s programming. Studying the numbers will also help you see how little it takes to make big gains in the rankings.

The first WOD of the 2015 CrossFit Open was 15.1:

Rx’d
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 9 minutes of:
15 Toes to Bar
10 Deadlifts (115/75)

Scaled
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 9 minutes of:
15 hanging knee raises
10 deadlifts (85/55)
5 snatches* (85/55)
*ground-to-overhead allowed

    Hey is this data for CFNYC only or across the Open? It would also be somewhat helpful to know how many people did Rx vs Scaled. Thanks 🙂

    • Hari Singh

      The data is across the Open (153,274 Men, 108,762 Women).
      15.1 Men = 72.1% RX’d
      15.1 Women = 49.1% RX’d
