Workout of the Day


CrossFit Games Event 4
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps for time of:

Wall walks

♀ 135 lb. (Virtual Games use 65 lb.)
♂ 185 lb. (Virtual Games use 95 lb.)

Post time to comments or register for the CrossFit Virtual Games and log your scores to the leaderboard.

While equal reps of wall walks to Open Workout 21.1, when paired with a thruster the demand on your shoulder stamina will be even higher. Most athletes should scale the loading on the thruster so that each round can be completed in 1-2 sets. Newer athletes should reduce the overall volume and modify the wall walk.

Intermediate Option:
8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps for time of:
Wall walks

♀ 95 lb. ♂ 135 lb.

Beginner Option:
8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps for time of:
Wall walks, partially up the wall

♀ 45 lb. ♂ 65 lb.

As rx’d (95#), 21:30.

Brutal.  It’s telling when thrusters are the best (and fastest) part of the workout.  Wall walks were mostly singles.  Did a couple back-to-back without pause, but mentally wasn’t able to do more without short breaks.  Honestly, it was physical as well – shoulders were getting pretty shot by the end.

wu: bike, scales, planks

skill: db variations

wod: 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1

thruster 40 kg

burpee box jumps 50 cm*


post: bike, stretch

* Where I work out, there is no wall to walk on or to do hspu and wall balls on, that wouldn't cause damage in long terms.

31:21 - Sc (135lb thrusters, but the wallwalks where actually the toughest, and slippery. Also, the games did the Couplet the other way around right?)

3 of 6 wall walks

I capped myself at 20 min.



half wall-walk (and I counted every no rep bc these mofos are hard)

my shoulders were both feeling a little unstable.

Been on vacation. Attempted this today, Saturday 7/31, after spending the week in WDW where I didn't have any chance to exercise but I did walk all day long from sunup to sunset.

75lbs thrusters, full rep scheme

23.5-24 mins

Flamed out on wall walks down the stretch. This was much more brutal than it looked.

all thrusters UB. You know you’re in for a rough WID when you look forward to the thrusters!

I did walk wake up until my thighs touched the wall, which still got my hands within 6-8” of the wall.

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 thrusters and wall walks

Started at 155lb, dropped to 135lbs after 5 reps. Wall walks were to full height but uncontrolled decent for the most part. Timer stopped at 17:30, best guess at the time:



P.S. I hate thrusters!

Modified / scaled to:


10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps for time of:

DB Thrusters w/ 2x 12,5 kg DB

Modified Wall walks as per the video tips: hands still, feet moving up the wall

SCORE: 24'02''


Vastly underestimated the difficulty of this and my fatigue level after yesterday's WOD.

Began by trying to do the wall walks as close to RX as possible, but realized that it would take me forever.

Restarted WOD trying to do the walks partially up the wall, but even that was a bit to much today. Insufficient technique and stamina.

So finally settled for one of the scaling tips in the video. But event so, I really struggled to get this done.

5k run during lunch break.

I was hoping somebody else would just use the math symbol !. It's so much easier to use that than 10-9-8-7-etc. Just had to appreciate a nerd moment 🤓

Except the ! means multiplication, not addition, though the workout sure felt like it in the later rounds.

The altitude doesn’t feel so bad going up and down the stairs, but with thrusters…

I'll be interested to hear how long it takes to adapt to the altitude. I imagine it must come to feel normal at some point. I am 5000-ft this week and feeling it!

Champions Club Scaling Notes


Nothing to rant about


Something that can be done in just about any setting. Pushing with core-to-extremity, and pushing but in a static position. Also a crap ton of range of motion.


Do the wall walks sloppy and for time, or be strict on the midline position?


As is, turn off the timer and do the wall walks slow and keeping the spine from moving.


Flip the order.


Sub bear crawl for wall walks and do some kind of descending distance routine.


Upper-body - AMRAP in 20 minutes of: 15 one-arm dumbbell thrusters, 45 hollow rocks

Lower-body - AMRAP in 20 minutes of: 15 knees to elbows, 5 wall walks


Did a different one... I'll get around to this
