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.

This week’s workout has been programmed by teen sensation Olivia Kerstetter. The recently turned 16-year old was impressive in her first Games appearance this past year. She won four of the eight events in the 14-15-year-old girl’s division en route to a 25-point victory and the title of “The Fittest 14-15-Year-Old Girl on Earth”.

The teen turned heads early on in the games with her 202 LB snatch in Event 3, which was the most weight put up by any woman at this year’s Games (2 pounds heavier than Tia-Clair Toomey’s winning lift in the women’s individual 1-rep Max Snatch event). This season she moves up to the 16-17-year-old division where she will be one of the favorites but will she make a run for an individual Games appearance and become the latest teenage girl to compete against the greats in the sport?

  • RX:
    6 Rounds (2:30 on/2:30 off)
    21/15 Cal Ski
    21 GHD Sit-ups
    Remaining time, max sandbag over-shoulders (150/100)
    6 Rounds (2:30 on/2:30 off)
    15/9 Cal Ski (or how many Cals you can ski for :50 second/1:00 minute)
    21 Toes-to-bars (or knee-ups)
    Remaining time, power cleans (moderately heavy weight on a barbell)
  • Time Cap: 30 minutes

Some advice from Olivia: “​​I would recommend going at a pace that you can maintain on the ski and GHDs so you have enough energy left to push the sandbag cleans before the rest. The goal is to have about 40-50 seconds of sandbag cleans so adjust the ski cals and GHDs as needed to accomplish that. Also, you should try to get around the same number of sandbag cleans each round, so don’t go out too fast!”
