Welcome back one of the original MP CrossFitters from 2007, Dave!

Health Zone Olympics

Bench Press Test:

Max rep Bench Press*

Males 54 & under @ 115/Males 55+ @ 85

Females 54 & under @ 65/Females 55+ @ 45


*Full range of motion (ROM) required. Bar starts fully extended, lowered to touch chest, and returned to starting position for each rep. Constant movement required, NO REST. If a rep does not reach full ROM, that rep does not count. Two incorrectly performed reps, or stopping the movement in the up or down positions, terminates the exercise.


Rest, up to 10 minutes


Main WOD:

10 Box Jumps (24/20″)*

10 Glute-Ham Sit-ups


10 rounds for time


*2012 Games standard, jump onto the box and then over = 1. Jumping over the box with one movement is also allowed.



Post bench press and WOD time time to comments

    14″ box jumpovers and GHD.

    my fear factor is less with the box jumpovers than regular box jumps. ….hmmm…what’s with that?? I’ll try 16″ box jumpovers next time.

  3. WOOHOO…Go, Vernice!!! 50 reps…impressive! All our 630s did great at the bench at this morning! I’m lovin’ all the CrossFitters taking medals in our HZ Olympics!

    25 reps @65#
    WOD time = 21:31 Rx (Yippie! I don’t often get to put Rx on WODS) – had 3 failed reps on the box tho 🙁
