Today’s workout is programmed by two-time Games athlete Jayson Hopper. The current seventh “Fittest Man on Earth” burst onto the scene in 2021 when he came out of nowhere to win the Mid-Atlantic CrossFit Challenge Semifinal, punching his very first ticket to Madison for the NOBULL CrossFit games. The then 23-year old placed 19th as a rookie at the Games before switching over to HWPO Training resulting in a 19th place finish both in the worldwide Open and North America Quarterfinals, setting career highs in placement in both stages respectively. The former Clemson University wide receiver will be competing at the Rogue Invitational for the second-straight year at the end of October.

    3 rounds for time
    9 Dual Kettlebell Thrusters (53/35 LBs – 24/16 KGs)
    12 Calorie Ski
    18 Chest-to-bar

Time Cap: 99 minutes

Scaling Options:

Kettlebell snatches and thrusters = lighter weight
Bar muscle-ups = burpee pull-ups
Chest-to-bar pull-ups = regular pull-ups

Some advice from Jayson: “Plan for the kettlebells to be very grippy and to affect your bar muscle-ups. So maybe 2-3 sets on the kettlebell snatches. Find a good and smooth pace on both machines. The workout is going to be won on the transitions to and from the kettlebell snatches and the chest-to-bars so be strategic in those two implements”
