Today’s workout is programmed by the 2023 CrossFit Games Rookie of the Year, Olivia Kerstetter. In her rookie campaign as an individual (and the youngest in the field), Kerstetter took three heat wins and a test win in the Echo Thruster Final, completing her 66-foot overhead walking lunge unbroken. Prior to this season, Kerstetter had a steller teen career, winning both the 14-15 and 16-17 divisions.

Double DB Thrusters (50/35 pounds)
Double DB Box Step Overs (24/20 inches) 

Directly into… 

BUY OUT: 20 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24/20 inches) 

Scaling Options: Athletes can substitute lighter dumbbells so that they are able to do the thrusters and step overs unbroken. Additionally, athletes can adjust to burpee box step ups or use a shorter box if needed. 

Advice from Olivia: “Don’t go out too hot on the buy in because the workout doesn’t start until the rounds of 21-15-9! Also, once you get past the round of 15 start pushing it a little more because you are almost done! Have fun with this one!”
