Jacob Heppner Does All The 2017 Regional Events In One Day

When Jacob Heppner announced he was withdrawing from the 2017 CrossFit Games season due to a knee injury, I was bummed to miss out on watching him compete. When details emerged that he was dealing with bursitis in his knee, I knew he would most likely be healthy by the time Regionals rolled around and would likely be crushing the events in training, and that's exactly what he did.

Heppner did what Heppner does, which is to take an already challenging set of events and make them even harder. He took the six events from Regionals this year and completed them all in the course of a single day of training, even putting out his times on the events. All six events are arguably in his wheelhouse, so it's reasonable to assume these will be near or at the times to beat for most of the top Regional athletes out there. Here are all the events and Jacob Heppner's times:

Event 1:


For time, wearing a weight vest:
1,200-m run
Then, 12 rounds of:
  4 strict handstand push-ups
  8 chest-to-bar pull-ups

Heppner - 15:20 with a full mile run instead of 1200m on the TrueForm.
