Workout Prediction: If 20.2 Is a Repeat

Oct 16, 2019 by

One week down and no repeat yet. We’re not saying that 20.2 is going to be a repeat, but if it is, here are a few of the best candidates for repeats.

But first, some important facts to know.

  • There has only been one movement repeated in the same year: bar facing burpees in 16.1 and 16.5. So let’s assume no repeated movements for the sake of this exercise.
  • We’re going to assume that the repeated workout will be pulled from the same week it was originally programmed. Every repeat since 2014 has been re-tested the same week it was originally announced, except for in 2018, when 11.6 was voted as the repeat workout. (Ex. 11.1 is 14.1)
  • No WODs from 2013 has ever been repeated; 2011 has had three repeats and 2014 has had two.
  • Thrusters have been in the final week every year. 
  • A WOD from week 3 has NEVER been re-tested.
  • No two-part WOD has ever been repeated. (Ex. 18.2 and 18.2a, or 15.1 and 15.2a)

Repeated Open Workouts (2011 - 2019)

Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Week 6
2011 11.1 11.2 11.3 11.4 11.5 11.6
2012 12.1 12.2 12.3 12.4 12.5
2013 13.1 13.2 13.3 13.4 13.5
2014 14.1 14.2 14.3 14.4 14.5
2015 15.1 15.2 15.3 15.4 15.5
2016 16.1 16.2 16.3 16.4 16.5
2017 17.1 17.2 17.3 17.4 17.5
2018 18.1 18.2 18.3 18.4 18.5
2019 19.1 19.2 19.3 19.4 19.5
2020 20.1 20.2 20.3 20.4 20.5

Of all the previous week 2 workouts, the following can be eliminated:

  • 12.2 — We just did ground-to-overhead so we’re probably not doing snatches again.
  • 14.2 — It’s already been repeated once before (15.2).
  • 16.2 — Repeated last year as 19.2.
  • 18.2 and 18.2a — Already did bar facing burpees. Check that one off the list.

We think these three workouts have the best chance of being repeated, if 20.2 is a repeat.

  • 17.2 — Best chance of being repeated.
    • 12 minute AMRAP
      2 Rounds:
      50ft DB walking lunge, 16 TTB, 8 DB power cleans
      then 2 rounds of:
      50ft DB walking lunge
      16 bar MU
      8 DB Cleans
  • 13.2 — Wouldn’t be the craziest idea.
    • 10 minute AMRAP
      5 shoulder to overhead (115/75)
      10 deadlift (115/75)
      15 box jumps (24/20)
  • 11.2 — Won’t catch us in Vegas placing any bets.
    • 15 minute AMRAP
      9 deadlifts (155/100)
      12 hand-release push-ups
      15 box jumps (24/20)
