Isabel

30 snatches for time

♀ 95 lb. ♂ 135 lb.

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.

For time:
70 hip-back extensions

Each time you break a set or rest at the bottom, stop and perform 15 wall-ball shots.

♀ 10-lb. ball ♂ 16-lb. ball
