Ya this will be a tough one for a lot of folks!

 I enjoy all these movements. Castro wasn't lying when he dropped the hint about dumbbell

I do decent on the bar too. That many mu's will wear me down pretty quick though I'm sure!
       I'd be willing to bet castro is getting a pretty good royalty for all the dumbells that rogue sells!

My lifetime total of bar MUs is ONE so I predict I'll have at least 5 mins of practice waiting for time to expire.

Worst part about bar mu for me was the beating my hands took while learning to do them. If you can, either buy some gymnastic grips or at least borrow some. Taking that out of your mind makes it way easier.

Well I did 17.2 last night. I made it all the way through the MU's  and got another full round of T2B. Finished with 162 reps total. I'm pretty stoked about my performance. I'm not even out of bed yet and I can feel that my glutes and hams are shredded from the lunges too!

162 is a solid score! I think 169 is the highest currently in our gym.

I just went to one of my crossfit friend's powerlifting meet. Man there were some beasts there. One guy back squatted 781 lbs. Funny part is I can guarantee 95% of them would die trying to complete a single wod.

Well am I the only one that did it or what??? gave it another go this morning, despite feeling much worse than I did friday I managed to get 12 more reps. finish with 174. I'm pretty happy and I'm fairly certain I wont do any better in any of the next 3 wods.  I predict a heavy barbell in the near future, and that wont be good for me. Hope the rest of you guys get some wods right in your wheelhouse!

I did it Friday and it went exactly as predicted, so I sprinted through the first two sets for a good tie break time of 4:15, then stared at the bar and attempted a half dozen or so BMU attempts.
I have been working on my oly lifting lately... still not where I want it but I got my C&J up to 225 and snatch up to 170.
Only movements I'm still dreading are double unders and handstand pushups

Right on. We had quite a few firsts in our gym this week with both pull ups and muscle ups, its good to see that stuff. Sorry you didnt have a breakthrough.   oh well, on to the next one right? I think were going to see db thrusters before its over with...thats what I'm dreading!

Tomorrow we are redoing 16.4 I'm kinda excited to see what my score compares to last year, even though hspu are still a major weakness for me.

did 17.1 as my first ever crossfit workout. done lots of circuits before but not true crossfit. im not registered in the open so im doing them for a butt kicking.

scaled down to 30lb DB's and completed in 16:29

hit 17.2 and it killed me. i did scale on the lunges and power cleans. had to scale to jump pullups instead of muscle ups.

122 reps. damn toes to bar is my enemy.

17.3 in a couple days!

How are everyones squat snatches? My hope is to get as deep in the 135s as possible.  My PR is 170 so tired 185 is way out of my wheelhouse

I definitely chose the wrong year to take off, this is a workout I had the opportunity to do decent at.  Every year is a crapshoot, I am better than average at snatch and average c&j.

The tough part for me I'd going to be focusing on form since power snatch plus an overhead squat are not allowed.

Oh man, this wod is where we seperate the men from the boys...and I'm definitely just a boy.  Did it this morning and made it through the 135 pound snatches and then could'nt even come close on 185lbs.  my one rep max is 175 so I knew I was pretty much screwed.

You did better than me. Only 4 snatches into the second round of 135.
I think I can improve that with a second go and better pacing and tightening up my form.
My 1RM is 170 so I have no delusions of hitting 185.

Ya even 135 was struggle for me.  I paced it out and used every second. I think I hit my last snatch at around the 7:50 Mark. I bet if you really do it you can better your score. This one didn't tear me up like the first two did.

Well 17.4 sucked! Did it this morning and got 16 HSPU's and 181 total reps, got no repped a bunch on the hspu's.  I'm pretty sure my weekend activities didn't help me out, I think could smell Irish whisky and Guinness seeping out of my pores! Anyways...one more to go, anyone have any predictions on 17.5?? I'm guessing it'll have db thruster and double unders and maybe some sort of clean or jerk movement.

Thrusters for sure and something on assault bike.

Today was my second attempt at 17.4 .... still zero hspu. I'm happy with my tiebreak time of 7:17 but really would have liked to hit one hspu. Oh well.

I feel like db thrusters and DU are guaranteed but doubt we'll see the assault bike since most garage gym guys don't have have them, hell not even all boxes have them.
I'm guessing we are going to get a chipper with several components.

Maybe that's just me hoping then. I will take a chipper over moving tons of weight any day.
