17.3 is chest-to-bar pull-ups and barbell snatches. A lot of them. Dave Castro is finally letting us touch a barbell.
The following percentiles are based on several thousand results that have already been posted to BTWB. These percentiles may change slightly as the weekend progresses and more scores are entered into the system.
Men’s 90th Percentile: 96 reps (Completed 2nd round 0f 185)
Men’s 50th Percentile: 59 reps (4 snatches on the 2nd round of 135)
Women’s 90th Percentile: 81 reps (1 snatch on the 1st round of 135)
Women’s 50th Percentile: 48 reps (5 snatches on the 1st round of 95)
There are two major roadblocks, one at 44 reps (135/95# snatch) and one 81 reps (185/135# snatch). For the vast majority of athletes it will be about how many reps they can get at 135/95, and every rep will have a big impact on placing.
