Today’s workout is programmed by the Morning Chalk Up’s very own Tommy Marquez. A staple of the CrossFit media space when it comes to broadcasting or co-hosting his very own podcast, Talking Elite Fitness, Marquez is one of our senior staff writers and one of the leading analysts in the sport. However he not only talks-the-talk but walks-the-walk, he’s a two-time individual CrossFit Quarterfinalist as well as competing in the 35-39 age group online qualifier.

Scaling Options:

  • Clean and jerks – scale weight, should be able to cycle five-plus reps fresh
  • Wall ball – scale weight
  • Double unders – weighted jump rope singles or 300 single unders

Some advice from Tommy: “​​After the barbell, aim for large sets with steady movement. Everything is relatively approachable, and with the mandated rest, should allow for some aggressive pacing. Use your first half split as a guide for the way back, and much like doing the Filthy 50 in reverse yields a slightly different stimulus, take note of how the switch in order changes the way you approach the same work with a similar goal time in mind.”
