“Each year in the United States Navy, a highly qualified and elite cadre of Sailors are selected and promoted to the join the ranks of Chief Petty Officer. Since 1893, “The Chiefs” have been relied upon by subordinates and superiors alike for their personal example, technical expertise and above all, their unique leadership capabilities. As the induction process for newly selected Chief Petty Officers is now underway throughout the US Navy, we thought it appropriate to inaugurate “The Chief” in honor and recognition of all past and present CPOs. Thanks to them and their families for their self-sacrifice, ability to adapt, tireless dedication to mission and devotion to country.” – crossfit.com

What is good score for hero WOD The Chief?

Accroding to our app good score for one 3 minute AMRAP is 4 rounds, if we multiply it by 5 we will get good score of 20 rounds. But this is one of the workouts that is tricky to calculate mainly because it has relatively light movements and it’s only 3 minutes long so you can step up on the gas pedal. In my opinion and according to BTWB good score for The Chief start at around 25 rounds.

If you want to hit good score in the chief you don’t need to hurry in the movements but you have to be quick in the transitions and do all movements unbroken.

It is also possible to hit +30 rounds in the Chief but you will need to make absolutely no breaks and push the tempo. I was able to hit 6 rounds and 4-8 reps in each interval but as I said you will need to push really hard.

When doing The Chief always have in mind that it’s only 3 minutes and then you can take a rest. 3 minutes rest is not enough to fully recovery but as I said before movements are relatively easy, so you will be able to push the pace.
