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 is programmed by 2021 CrossFit Games rookie Ellie Turner. The Aussie burst onto the scene last year with a 35th finish in the Open and followed that by a fourth place finish in the Oceania Quarterfinals and then a third place at the Torian Pro Semifinals to punch her Games ticket, where she came 26th.


  • EMOM x 20 minutes
    Minute 1: 200 meter run
    Minute 2: 6 devils press (50/35 LBs) + 6 DB step ups (24/20 inches)

Scaling Options:

  • Decrease the run distance or sub it out for a machine (should take around 50 secs) Scale weight accordingly. It should be a tough workout but the weight shouldn’t be the limiting factor.

Some advice from Ellie: “​​It’s a long, grindy workout so the key will be pacing so you aren’t sprinting the first rounds when you’re fresh. Try and be as efficient with your movements as possible so you aren’t wasting time or energy.”
