Hyper-Elite CrossFit Athlete Noah Ohlsen's WOD Is Your New Challenge

·2-min read

Want to work out like one of the fittest men in CrossFit? You've come to the right place. As part of our continued commitment to bringing you a steady stream of muscle-tearing, brain-bending and lung-burning workouts, we tapped up elite CrossFit athlete Noah Ohlsen — an eight-time CrossFit Games veteran and 2019's second-fittest man on earth — for a session that you won't soon forget.

As detailed below, you'll work through five exercises in a descending ladder format. Aiming to complete Ohlsen's workout as soon as possible, your mission (should you choose to accept it) will be to work your way down the 'ladder', only moving on to the next exercise once you've completed every single aching rep of each segment. You'll start on pull-ups. Whether you go kipping or strict will be your call and — as with every exercise — Ohlsen has shared a handful of scaling tips to make each exercise suit your strength and fitness level.

With the barbell work, Ohlsen expects nothing less than squeaky-clean form — so be sure to check your ego at the door and work with a weight that allows for a full range of motion. Got it? Let's get to work.

For Time:

  • 50 pull-ups

  • 40 handstand push-ups (HSPU)

  • 30 toes-to-bar

  • 20 deadlifts

  • 10 clean and jerks

Noah's Scaling Options:

  • "Pull-ups can be scaled down to using a resistance band, or just to reduce the reps."

  • "HSPUs can be scaled to press-ups from a box or a chair, or to scale the reps down."

  • "Toes-to-bar can be scaled to knee-raises, or v-ups."

  • "Deadlifts and clean and jerks can scale the weight to whatever allows you to move with perfect form."
