8 of The Most Epic CrossFit Games Workouts of All Time

As the Navy Seal saying goes: “Under pressure, you don’t rise to the occasion, you sink to the level of your training.”

Cleans and ring handstand push-ups (hspu for women) in 2010

7 rounds for time of:
3 cleans (205 lbs/135 lbs, 93/61kg)
4 handstand push-ups (Ring HSPU for men)
12-minute cap

This workout would be a good warm-up for the majority of today’s top level Games athletes. However, in 2010 the cleans and handstand push-ups couplet wasn’t as easy as it first appear to be. Men struggled with on the ring while pressing into a handstand position and achieving a valid rep. Most of the women had a hard time with handstand push-ups, which were actually strict and deficit, performed on 15kg plates.

Graham Holmberg and Kristin Clever, later both 2010 Games champions, won the workout.
