CrossFit Open 17.2

The CrossFit Open 17.2 was 12 minutes of hell. Even the scaled version. I don’t like pull-ups in isolation, let alone after two rounds of punishing 50 ft walking lunges. I take my hat off to any accomplished CrossFitter who completed the RX version of this workout.

The CrossFit Open 17.2 started well. A gentle warm-up consisted of backwards lunges, Sit-ups and Med Ball Cleans.
