CrossFit Open 17.4: Preliminary Analysis

This is part of a series on The CrossFit Games 2017 Open Workouts. For more, checkout: 17.4 Final Analysis, 17.3 Final Analysis, 17.2 Final Analysis, 17.1 Final Analysis.

17.4 is 16.4. Many of you have done this before and probably still have nightmares about that crazy HSPU tape standard (which we all know becomes nearly impossible to hit when fatigued).

Since this is a repeat, we have a lot of data already in the system for this one. More than half of the field will finish on the HSPUs, so every rep there is vitally important (see below).

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: 202 reps
Men’s 50th Percentile: 173 reps
Women’s 90th Percentile: 193 reps
Women’s 50th Percentile: 165 reps

The first graphic is from the final CrossFit Games results from last year. The next two are Rx’d and Scaled distributions from current BTWB data.

    How are scaled and Rx scores mixed to find final rankings among athletes?

    Is there anyway to break the masters down?

    Have you guys ever published data based upon height and weight? I think it’d be interesting to see how I finish amongst other athletes of similar size..
