Today we test out a Benchmark “Girl WOD”- and her name is “Jackie.” This is likely the shortest chipper benchmark… as it has been finished in 5:04 by one-time CrossFit Games champ Jason Khalipa- during the 2013 Nor Cal regionals. While this is a blazing, world class pace- some of our top athletes will complete it in around 7 minutes. The general time domain is at or under 10 minutes… but since this is a very accessible WOD to go Rx (as it is super light and has “only” 30 pull ups … if you CAN go Rx, then do it! That means as long as you can get a few pull ups- then go for it. We have repeated this WOD many times- check back in your records and try and beat your previous time. IF you scaled it the last time you did it- consider scaling it the same way so that you can compare your results directly.
We go back to 2012 to watch Jason and Becca do Rowing Helen at the Hut

1000m row, 50 empty barbell thrusters, and 30 pull-ups for time anyone?! Jackie is a classic CrossFit benchmark. Here is your path to a PR (or to the best possible time for YOU today): row fast, but not a pace that will blow you up, go unbroken as long as possible on the thrusters or break into 2 planned sets, and then break up the pull-ups as needed with VERY shorts bouts of rest! You’re looking to finish sub 10 minutes!
Back-Up Plan… if the AQI (air quality index) is moving away from 50 and towards 100.
For 6 Sets, on the 6 minute mark:
At the top- Back squat 4 reps
2 minutes later- Weighted pull up 2 reps
At the 6 minute mark- repeat
