The classic benchmark workout “Elizabeth” can be performed in a couple different ways depending on your gym’s or coach’s preference. At Arena Ready “Elizabeth” has and always will be done with FULL (AKA “SQUAT”) cleans — even though the WOD is traditionally written as “cleans” (i.e. you can clean it anyhow… power, split, muscle, squat).

We’ve done so many variations of ‘Elizabeth” over the years, including powers, running, rowing, burpees, and many other movements added to the mix. But on Friday we’ll re-test the most classic and true variation of the WOD there is… a simple 21-15-9 couplet with full cleans (and ring dips too… woohoo).

Happy Friday, friends!
