Scaling
Select a middling but manageable load for the barbell, knowing that the snatch will be the limiting factor for almost all athletes. Avoid misses on the snatch and perform touch-and-go clean and jerks if you’re able to. Modify the rope work so you can get back to the barbell in about a minute or less.

Intermediate Option
Complete as many rounds as possible in 12 minutes of:
1 squat snatch
3 clean and jerks
30 double-unders

Men: 125 lb.

The GHD Sit-Up
The Bar Muscle-Up


Scaling
You have a total of 6 minutes to perform each movement, and the volume will demand rest breaks—especially in intervals 4-6. Select modifications that force you to work relatively hard for each rep of the pulling movement, and modify the core work so you do not have to take long rest breaks. The GHD sit-up is potent: Avoid large increases in volume over previous workouts or sub out for sit-ups.

Intermediate Option
On a 12-minute clock:
1 minute of GHD sit-ups to parallel
1 minute of chest-to-bar pull-ups
2 minutes of GHD sit-ups to parallel
2 minutes of chest-to-bar pull-ups
3 minutes of GHD sit-ups to parallel

Scaling
Annie is meant to be performed at high speed, with the sit-ups as the limiting factor. Modify the double-unders so you can mow down the rope work, and reduce the sit-up reps so each round is challenging but manageable.

Beginner Option

Single-unders
Sit-ups
