Nutrition Challenge Benchmark Workout

“Helen”

Complete Three Rounds for Time:

Run 400 Meters
Kettlebell Swing, 21 Repetitions (53lb. / 35lb.)
12 Pull-ups

Note: The famous CrossFit workout “Helen” was originally known as the “CrossFit Challenge” and was the workout Coach Glassman took on the road as an early version of the CrossFit Games. In 2004, Coach Glassman, Greg Amundson, and Josh Everett toured nearly 40 CrossFit gyms to take on Athletes in the “CrossFit Challenge”. In 2004, a time of 12:00 was considered world class. Today, Athletes routinely complete “Helen” in under 8:00. We will be using “Helen” as our benchmark workout to determine improvement due to performance nutrition over the month of May.
