Jackie
For time:

1,000-meter row
50 thrusters
30 pull-ups

♀ 35 lb ♂ 45 lb

If your Jackie time is greater than 8 minutes, or you’ve never completed the workout, perform it as written above. If you do have a fast time on record, consider scaling up the thruster and pull-ups to something similar to the Games finale.

Post time to comments.
Compare 181213.


Scaling
The benchmark Jackie is meant to be performed at very high intensity. Reduce the distance of the row and the weight of the bar to ensure you can push the pace. Modify the pull-ups so you can crank out large sets that test your conditioning.

♀ 24-kg KBs ♂ 32-kg KBs

If you have a sled or something else to push, use it, and try to mimic the lengths and difficulty as seen by the Games athletes. Post time and sled substitution to comments.


Scaling:
No one will have an Alpaca sled, but anyone can find something to push. Pick kettlebells that allow you to complete at least 5 reps of the clean and jerks when fresh. Try a more difficult version of rope climbs than you would normally do.

Shuttle to Overhead
For max reps:

From 0:00-2:00 (2 minutes)
Run 400 m
Max jerks

Rest 1 minute

From 3:00-6:00 (3 minutes)
Run 600 m
Max jerks

Rest 2 minutes

From 8:00-12:00 (4 minutes)
Run 800 m
Max jerks

Pick a load that is heavy, but not your max. You should be able to complete multiple jerks per round.

Post load and number of reps completed each round to comments.


Scaling:
The loads used by Games athletes are too heavy for most athletes. Pick a load that is heavy, but doable. If needed, reduce the run distances so you have 30-45 seconds each round to complete as many reps as possible of the jerk. Beginners should go lighter and focus on sound mechanics.

Beginner Option:
For time:
Run 200 m
10 jerks
Run 400 m
