Isabel

30 snatches for time

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.

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

Test 3

Tabata squat
Max reps of muscle-ups in 4 minutes

The Tabata interval is 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest for 8 intervals. The Tabata score is the least number of reps performed in any of the eight intervals. Begin time for muscle-ups immediately after the last 10-second rest interval. Test score equals Tabata score multiplied by number of muscle-ups completed.

Post score to comments.
Compare to 161029.


Scaling:
Refer to the original format of this Test 3 in “How Fit Are You?” from the CrossFit Journal in 2003. Most athletes can perform the Tabata squats. Athletes striving to get a muscle-up but not there yet can modify to 4 minutes of pull-ups and dips or push-ups. Intermediate athletes can complete this test as written.

Beginner Option:
Tabata squat
Max sets of 3 assisted pull-ups + 3 push-ups in 4 minutes
