Heavy Grace Workout Demo

Recently while at the Ranch, Graciano Rubio, owner of CrossFit Valley View, scaled Grace up to 225 lb.

For most, Grace at 135 lb is plenty heavy. But for an elite few, the load can be increased and the workout can still be completed in a reasonable time frame. 

In 2011, Rich Froning completed 225 Grace in 4:49 and then bested his time a few years later, finishing in 3:16.


Workout of the Day for 220728:

Grace
30 clean and jerks for time

♀ 95 lb ♂ 135 lb

Compare to 160206.


Scaling
Grace is one of the fastest CrossFit benchmark workouts. Reduce the load so you can perform multiple reps unbroken and complete all the reps in less than 5 minutes. Athletes less familiar with Olympic lifting should take time to drill the mechanics of each movement and reduce the load drastically.

Intermediate Option
30 clean and jerks for time
♀ 75 lb ♂ 115 lb

Beginner Option
30 clean and jerks for time
♀ 55 lb ♂ 75 lb
