Post time to comments.
Compare to 200210.


Scaling:
Isabel 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 7 minutes. Athletes less familiar with Olympic lifting should take time to drill the mechanics of each movement and reduce the load drastically. Increasing the load, like in the video, may be appropriate for a few advanced athletes, but most should keep this lighter in order to finish quickly.

Intermediate Option:
30 snatches for time

♀ 75 lb. ♂ 115 lb.

Beginner Option:
30 snatches for time

♀ 35 lb. ♂ 55 lb.

Globo Scale- you have 3 options here. If with bumpers and bar do as Rxed or follow the scaling options and guidance posted. If you only have iron plates scale to something you can touch and go multiple reps, and consider low hang power snatches (from the shins) if you are working with smaller than standard plates. Finally, the dumbbell sub is 60 alternating dumbbell snatches 35/50lb. Try to do this in large sets. Scale as necessary from here to preserve workout stimulus and form.


Bodyweight/no equipment sub do either 100 burpee object touches for time (6" above reach), or 30 high object jump overs for time (safety first).
