Brooke Wells’ Workout of the Week
Today’s workout is programmed by eight-time CrossFit Games veteran, Brooke Wells. Wells won the 2015 Central Regional and has competed at the elite level ever since. A few highlights include winning the Central Regional in 2015 and 2018, placing third (2021) and fourth (2022) at the MACC Semifinal, and placing in the top five twice and the top 10 four times in her Games career.
Notably, Wells was one of only five women to compete in person at the 2020 COVID-disrupted CrossFit Games. In 2021, she suffered a major elbow injury in Madison, followed by a dramatic comeback to the competition floor, as outlined in her new book Resilient. Wells is active with brands in the CrossFit space and is a brand ambassador for Kineon, a leader in red light therapy recovery tech.
3 Rounds for Time:
15 Calorie Row
10 Power Cleans (athlete’s choice, see below)
Time Cap: 14 Minutes
Scaling tips: You can adjust the weight on the power cleans so that you are able to complete the reps in only two sets with minimal rest in between. If toes-to-bar are too challenging for your fitness level, you can swap these out for toes-to-target or knee raises. The intended stimulus includes grip fatigue, so ideally, you would not adjust to V-ups or other supine movements. You can also increase the time cap if necessary.
