Every day this week you will meet a different CrossFit Femme Fatale. A Femme Fatale is an irresistible, alluring and seductive woman who leads men into difficult situations. Don't you think that is an appropriate description of the CrossFit "Girl" workouts? They are seductive and alluring and every time we meet them we find ourselves in a difficult situation.
Today's dangerous woman has not visited us for Femme Fatale week since 2019. She missed us and now she's back.
She was first introduced to the CrossFit community on June 25, 2004.
Yes, CrossFit has been around for over 17 years!
Here is that original description:
"This is 3 rounds; the first at 21 reps, the second at 15, and the third at 9 reps. It's expected that you'll need to partition the sets, e.g., Deadlift 7-7-7 & Handstand push-up 3-3-3-3-3-3-3 as a first round. Interval management - work/rest timing to optimize time - is an essential skill.
If the load is too much under any partitioning scheme, reduce it. If you need help with the handstand push-up, take it in any manner you can get it. If the handstand push-up (HSPU) is clearly beyond your current capacity, substitute a standing dumbbell shoulder press (hip and leg free). Though a less functional press, the standing shoulder press is a closer simulation to the HSPU than the more functional push-press or jerk. The point is that there's a manageable substitution for this workout for everyone that preserves both its mechanical and metabolic characteristics - this will be your Diane."
Today your coach will help you find the correct modification for the handstands push-ups. Good luck!
