Scaling:
Today’s workout is meant to be a grind. The load of the ruck should allow you to complete at least 15-20 unbroken reps of the ground-to-overheads and to keep moving on each of the rucks. Newer athletes should move at a march pace and reduce the distance to complete each ruck in no more than 11 minutes. If you’re more experienced, feel free to pick up the pace.

Burpees

Perform a 50-foot handstand walk after each set of burpees.

Post time to comments.

Scaling:
Today’s workout challenges your upper-body gymnastics stamina. Expect the fatigue from the burpees to have a dramatic impact on the handstand walks. Advanced athletes should push the pace on the burpees and try to maintain unbroken handstand walks. Less-experienced athletes should manage their pace on the burpees and rest as needed before kicking up. If you can perform a 50-foot handstand walk but can’t complete it in under 1 minute, scale the distance. Be cautious of upper-body fatigue. If you feel like you might collapse or buckle if you kick up, give yourself a chance to recover and gain confidence before continuing. Remember to continuously press into the floor and maintain an active position. Work hard and have fun with this one.

Today’s workout is a classic CrossFit benchmark, originally created for an MMA fighter to simulate the feeling of a 3-round match. Although we are not fighting in this workout, it does pack a punch. Push to keep moving for as much of each minute as possible. Capitalize on movements you excel at and pace yourself on your weaker movements. Most athletes should be able to stick with the interval pattern. Beginners should reduce the loading and height of the box. Intermediate athletes can complete this workout as prescribed.

Today's workout is in honor of Randy Simmons, 51, a 27-year LAPD veteran and SWAT team member who was killed Feb. 7, 2008, in the line of duty. He is survived by his wife, Lisa; son, Matthew; and daughter, Gabrielle.

Scaling:
Today’s Hero workout is a sprint. The loading should feel light (very light for some). Reduce the load so you can perform multiple reps unbroken and complete all the reps in less than 8 minutes. Athletes who are less familiar with Olympic lifting should take time to drill the mechanics of the snatch and reduce the load and reps.

30 dumbbell front-rack walking lunges

♀ 20 lb
♂ 35 lb

Post times to comments.

Scaling:
Today’s triplet has a short to moderate time domain, depending on your ability to manage your strict gymnastics strength and stamina. Perform this workout as prescribed if you can complete at least 3 unbroken strict chest-to-bar pull-ups and 5-7 hand-release push-ups without deviation of your midline (aka “snaking” your push-ups). The loading of the lunges in this workout should be light enough that you can perform each round unbroken. Don’t stop moving on the lunges, and challenge yourself to perform one more pull-up or push-up before breaking on each round.

Intermediate option:

Today’s workout contains five sprints. The pace is meant to be pushed on each run so you can give yourself as much time as possible to perform knees-to-elbows. Scale the distance of the run to give yourself at least 20 seconds on the pull-up bar. Work hard and have fun today.

Scaling:
Today’s workout has a moderate time domain and comprises a single round with decreasing reps and distances. With your midline being a major factor in this workout, expect the GHD sit-ups to interfere with your rope climbs and runs. Advanced athletes should push the pace on the runs and try to go unbroken on the GHD sit-ups.

Scaling:
Expect to go around and around the merry-go-round in today’s workout. The rep volume is low, and so is the loading. This should allow you to push the pace for the entire duration of the workout. Advanced athletes should try to maintain unbroken reps for as many sets as possible. Less-experienced athletes should scale the movements to perform a single round in 2 minutes or less.

Scaling:
In today’s gymnastics couplet, you can choose your own adventure — break the two exercises up and alternate between them however you need. Expect muscle fatigue to be a factor in this workout. Advanced athletes can try to maintain larger sets on the bar muscle-ups, while less-experienced athletes may choose to break the two movements into sets that minimize fatigue and allow for minimal rest. Breaks and rest periods are inevitable, however, aim to avoid hitting failure on either movement.

Scaling:
This benchmark workout was first posted on CrossFit.com on Sept. 19, 2003. Diane is intended to be a short, intense effort. Similar to yesterday’s Fran, many athletes have completed this workout in blazing-fast times, but don’t let that deter you from attempting the prescribed version. The load of the barbell should allow you to perform at least 7 unbroken deadlifts every time you pick it up. Reduce the load to achieve this stimulus and, above all, maintain the integrity of the lift. The handstand push-up option you choose should allow you to complete at least 5 reps every time you kick up. Reduce the difficulty of the movement by performing pike push-ups or dumbbell shoulder presses. If you scale the handstand push-up, your variation should not allow you to complete the reps unbroken (if you do, the movement is too easy).

When the community was introduced to Fran, CrossFit’s founder Greg Glassman challenged people to beat original CrossFit athlete Greg Amundson's time of 3:59. Today, elite athletes complete the prescribed workout in under 2 minutes. Fran is intended to be a sprint. Experienced athletes should go hard and shoot for a PR! Choose a load for the thruster that allows you to complete at least 15 unbroken reps. Select a pull-up option that allows you to complete each round with minimal rest. Intermediate and beginner athletes should establish a goal for this workout and create a plan for breaking up the thrusters and/or pull-ups as necessary.

Scaling:
Today’s workout is a mental and physical test. On paper, this workout creates an ominous thought of too much time on the rower — and that's exactly what’s intended. Adjust the load of the dumbbell so you can perform at least 10 unbroken snatches. Consider holding the dumbbell in the farmers-carry position, the front rack, or on the shoulder. Ultimately, the choice is yours, but the goal is to perform 50 lunges unbroken. Don’t look at the clock — just jump on the rower, push the pace, and get to work. Have fun!

Scaling:
Today’s workout contains 10 sprints. Athletes performing the workout as prescribed should have at least 20 seconds to accumulate as many wall-ball shots as possible in each round. Wall walks should be quick with minimal rest between reps. The load of the deadlifts, while moderately heavy, should allow athletes to go unbroken in each round. Scale the range of motion of the wall walks and the load of the deadlifts to hit this stimulus.

Intermediate option:

Today's workout is in honor of Navy Lieutenant Michael McGreevy, 30, of Portville, New York, who was killed in Afghanistan on June 28, 2015. He is survived by his wife, Laura, and daughter, Molly.

Scaling:
This Hero workout is a long effort with a high volume of reps. Athletes hitting this as prescribed should aim to finish each round in 9 minutes or less. Focus on the movement you are performing on the GHD (back extension or hip extension). Most athletes deliberately scale the back extension to the hip extension to maintain intensity and achieve the stimulus of the workout. The back extension is a controlled movement with an intentional surrendering of the spine. Dose this movement judiciously. Advanced athletes may scale the volume of the back extension if they have never completed this volume. New and less-experienced athletes should consider performing hip extensions instead of back extensions, and potentially decrease the reps of each movement.

Intermediate option:
3 rounds for time of:
Run 800 meters
35 back extensions
35 sit-ups

Beginner option:
3 rounds for time of:
Jog 400 meters
25 PVC pipe good-mornings
15-25 sit-ups

Scaling:
Today we have an ascending ladder of ring dips and burpees paired with a consistent number of hang power cleans. The load of the barbell is moderately heavy and should allow you to complete 5 reps in 2 sets or less. Advanced athletes may be able to maintain unbroken reps throughout the workout. Athletes performing the ring dips as prescribed should be able to maintain consistent sets of 3-5 unbroken reps. Expect the ring dips and burpees to cause localized muscle fatigue and the hang power cleans to be a welcomed “break.” Work hard and have fun today!

Intermediate option:
Complete as many reps as possible in 12 minutes of:
1 ring dip
2 burpees
5 hang power cleans
2 ring dips
