“Helen meets Grace”

The workout is called “Helen Meets Grace.” This is a two-person team workout with one person working at a time, except for the 400m runs, which must be performed together. As with all CrossFit workouts, everything is scaleable (all CrossFit Beyond athletes started with PVC pipes before lifting heavier weights).

Helen consists of three rounds of: 400 meter run (both partners run together); 21 kettlebell swings; (Rx 53/35#) and 12 pull-ups. Competitors will be encouraged to do Chest to Bar pull-ups and 70/55# kettlebell swings. Partners can tag-team in and out of the kettlebell swings and/or pull-ups as needed. Once all three rounds of Helen are complete, the team immediately moves on to perform Grace which consists of 30 clean and jerks (Rx 135/95#) as fast as possible, partitioned in any fashion between the two team members. Again, for competitors, this weight will be 185/115#. The score is the total time for the team to complete both workouts.

Scaled weights:
Men 75lb C&J, 45lb kettle-bell, banded pull-ups
Women 45lb C&J, 25lb kettle-bell, banded pull-ups

Teams
Teams of 2 may consist of two males, two females, or a male and a female. There will be both an RX division and a scaled division.
