Metcon (Time)


5 sets:

30 plate hops (45/35-lb plate)

5 weighted box jumps (12/20 in)

– Rest as needed between sets.
In Accessory – I, use a vest, a single DB, or a pair of DBs to weight the box jumps. Start with a lighter load to build confidence as this can be a challenging movement. Increase weight as you are able without approaching failure.

The goal on the plate hops is speed and fast feet. Get on and off the plate as quickly as possible for 30 reps.

Stimulus & Goals

Classic CrossFit hero workout.

Longer higher-skill stamina-based workout.

Most athletes should be around 7-10 rounds, while more advanced athletes could see15-20 rounds.


The determining factors in this workout are the muscle-ups and the handstand push-ups. Athletes that have a 15+ round Nate score, should perform strict muscle-ups and handstand push-ups.

If you are able to complete muscle-ups and handstand push-ups but struggle with volume, try to perform today’s workout as Rx’d. However, only give yourself 2 attempts to complete 2 muscle-ups (succeed or fail). Take no more than :30 to complete 4 handstand push-up reps. This will keep you moving and give you an opportunity to build volume with these movements.

More advanced athletes should come out hot and try to hang on. It is possible to get 20 rounds in this workout, but transitions need to be quick and you need to get ahead of the clock early.
