Arielle Loewen’s Workout of the Week
Today’s workout is programmed by CrossFit Games veteran, Arielle Loewen. Loewen burst onto the scene in 2021, winning the Granite Games Semifinal and taking 14th place in the Games. In her sophomore effort, she almost missed Games, taking 6th at the Syndicate Crown before stomping the competition and earning a spot to the Games as the winner of the Last Chance Qualifier. She improved at Games, taking 11th. More recently she took 10th at the 2022 Rogue Invitational.
- 3 Rounds for Time:
- 20 Bar-facing Burpees
- 10 Clean and Jerks (205/135)
- 5 Bar Muscle-Ups
Time Cap: 12 Minutes
Scaling options: Drop the weight to (135/95) and do pull-ups or ring rows instead of the muscle-ups.
Some advice from Arielle : “I personally love long workouts where you set a pace and grind through it. But when I saw this one, it scared me because you can’t pace it. The stimulus is to start at an uncomfortable burpee speed and try to hang on throughout the whole workout.
The weight should be one that lets you do quick singles. Shouldn’t be light enough to tough and go any of them, Start strong and try not to die.”
