♂ 105 lb. (Virtual Games use 95 lb.)

Post time to comments, or complete a CrossFit Virtual Games event and log your scores to the leaderboard.


Scaling:
This workout should be approached as a sprint. The barbell load is light and the bike distances are relatively short. Reduce the load on the barbell so that the reps can be completed unbroken when fresh. Also, consider reducing the reps of both exercises to keep this workout fast.

Intermediate Option:
21-15-9 reps for time of:
Echo Bike calories
Snatches

♀ 55 lb. ♂ 75 lb.

Beginner Option:

Friday 210730

For time:
550-yard sprint

Then,
Deadlift 5-5-5 reps

Post time to comments, or complete a CrossFit Virtual Games event and log your scores to the leaderboard.


Scaling:
Today’s workout is two separate max efforts. A run sprint, followed by a heavy 5-rep max deadlift. Most athletes can do this workout as prescribed. On the deadlift, intermediate athletes should build to a heavy set of 5, while newer athletes should start light, focus on mechanics, and slowly add weight as they are comfortable.

Thursday 210729

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

Thrusters
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.


Scaling:
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:
Thrusters
Wall walks

♀ 95 lb. ♂ 135 lb.

Beginner Option:
8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps for time of:

5 deadlifts
10 burpees

♀ 185 lb. ♂ 275 lb.

Post time to comments.
Compare to 180710.


Scaling
This couplet should be relatively heavy but still fast-paced. Just about all athletes can perform deadlifts and some version of a burpee. Reduce the loading so you can complete each set of deadlifts unbroken. If needed, reduce the number of burpees to a point that allows you to keep moving quickly and avoid excessive rest.

Monday 210719

Hang squat clean 3-3-3-3-3-3-3 reps

Post loads to comments.
Compare to 180604.


Scaling:
The hang squat clean is a good opportunity to practice full hip and leg extension, and speed under the bar. Ideally, each set will be as heavy as possible for 3 reps, but newer athletes should start light and slowly add weight as they are comfortable.

Sunday 210718

Andi

100 hang power snatches
100 push presses
100 sumo deadlift high pulls
100 front squats

♀ 45 lb. ♂ 65 lb.

Post time to comments.
Compare to 210114.


Scaling:
Choose a weight that is appropriately light and plan to break each exercise into multiple sets. Like with her cousin Angie, the goal for Andi is to finish all 400 reps as quickly as possible, so take short breaks that allow continuous movement.

Intermediate Option:
100 hang power snatches
100 push presses
100 sumo deadlift high pulls
100 front squats

♀ 35 lb. ♂ 45 lb.

Thursday 210715

Complete as many calories on the rower as possible in 10 minutes of:

10 strict handstand push-ups
20 pulls on the rower

Post calories rowed to comments.


Scaling:
Similar to 210706, get through the handstand push-ups and go hard on the row. We rarely see workouts with a specific amount of pulls on the rower, practice solid technique during the warm-up and shoot for max effort pulls during the workout. Choose a handstand push-up modification that is challenging, but allows you to keep moving.

Intermediate Option:
Complete as many calories on the rower as possible in 10 minutes of:
5 strict handstand push-ups
20 pulls on the rower

Beginner Option:
Complete as many calories on the rower as possible in 10 minutes of:
10 assisted push-ups
20 pulls on the rower

Wednesday 210714

Clean and jerk 3-3-3-3-3 reps

Post loads to comments.
Compare to 200914.


Scaling:
Few athletes will need to scale this lifting day. Experienced athletes can go as heavy as possible, while newer athletes can use this workout as an opportunity to drill the movements. Both the clean and the jerk are technical lifts that should be practiced in the warm-up.

Tuesday 210713

Intermediate Option:
3 rounds for time of:
Lunge 100 meters
Run 300 meters
Wear a 14/20-lb. weight vest.

Beginner Option:

Spend the warm-up practicing a push-up option that allows you to complete at least 10 consecutive reps. Before heading to the water, spend time watching instructional swimming videos.

Intermediate Option:
5 rounds for time of:

Retrieve the second plate, carry it forward, and reload the barbell for the next round.

Post rounds completed to comments.
Compare to 160614.


Scaling:
This is another longer-style workout, but this one involves unloading and carrying equipment forward — grunt work. Similar to Grace, the barbell should be loaded so you can perform multiple reps unbroken. Newer athletes should reduce the duration.

The CrossFit community mourns the loss of Chad Robert Peyton, a beloved husband, father, son, brother, and friend. Chad, a U.S. Army veteran with 10 years of military service, struggled with depression and anxiety. He took his own life on May 17, 2021.

Chad received a Congressional nomination to attend West Point, where he graduated with a B.S. in May 2003 before being commissioned as an aviation officer in the U.S. Army.

Chad became a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter pilot and served in Germany during Operation Iraqi Freedom II. He was subsequently promoted to Captain and stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas, from 2006 until 2009, when he was transferred to Fort Bragg, North Carolina. During his military service, he was awarded the Bronze Star and many other awards and commendations.

In 2012, Chad was honorably discharged from the Army and relocated to Santa Cruz, California, where he became a beloved member of the local CrossFit community. He and his wife, Nicole, were married in September 2014.

When he wasn’t flying helicopters as a first responder, Chad enjoyed spending time with his family, doing CrossFit, hiking in the forest, surfing, traveling, and helping his friends and fellow veterans.

Chad is survived by Nicole, who works on the publishing team at the CrossFit Home Office; his two children, Isla, 5, and Ellis, 3; and many other friends and family members.

10 pull-ups
