Default to Nancy, a classic CrossFit workout. CAP affiliates will be doing Helen today. If you have not completed Helen recently, give it a shot.
Nancy: Choose a load that allows you to complete most of the OHS unbroken. The challenge of this workout is to keep an aggressive pace on each element knowing that neither the lifting nor the running are so demanding on their own that you’ll need extended rests. Advanced athletes should resist the temptation to add load and instead commit to a run pace that’s just a little too hot.
Helen: Most athletes should aim to complete the swings and pull-ups unbroken. If you anticipate needing to break either movement more than one or two times, reduce the weight of the swings and consider completing ring rows instead of pull-ups. If you can complete Helen in less than 8 minutes, consider trying Helena from this year’s Games.
