Every Friday, we’re bringing you an exclusive workout challenge programmed by a CrossFit Games athlete or coach that you can take on at home or the gym. You can post your times or scores in the comment section.

Today’s workout of the week is programmed by 17-year old rising star Emma Cary. Cary burst onto the scene this year as she finished second overall in the world-wide Open and then followed that with top-5 finishes in the North American Quarterfinals and the Granite Games Semifinals to earn her invite to the 2021 CrossFit Games. 

The youngest athlete in the field placed 16th overall thanks to four top-10 finishes in her rookie debut. Not content with those results, she has had a busy offseason, placing 12th at the Rogue Invitational in October. Next week she heads halfway around the world to compete at the prestigious Dubai CrossFit Championship.

For time:
2,000 meter row
100 Pistols
30 Hang Power Cleans (225/145)

Some advice from Emma: “​​This is such a fun workout! Control the row, attack the pistols. Then I would recommend doing small sets with really short breaks on the hang power cleans.”
