Scaling this WOD
Choose a load that allows you to complete the farmers carry and push jerks unbroken during the first round. Use a push-up variation that allows you to complete the first round in 2 sets or less. During the later rounds, expect to use multiple sets to complete each movement. If you are performing 2 reps or less at any time, consider modifying the movements further.

Beginner
3 rounds for time of:
200-meter farmers carry
20 knee push-ups
10 push jerks

Men use 25-lb. dumbbells for the farmers carry and push jerks.
Women use 15-lb. dumbbells for the farmers carry and push jerks.

If unable to finish the push-ups in 3 sets or less, consider reducing the reps by 5. Watch the Dumbbell Push Jerk video in the CrossFit Journal before starting the workout. It is more important for beginners to develop positional consistency in the jerk than to challenge themselves with loading. If technique can’t be maintained, reduce the load.

Intermediate
5 rounds for time of:
200-meter farmers carry
12 deficit push-ups, hands on dumbbells
10 push jerks

Men use 40-lb. dumbbells for the farmers carry and push jerks.
Women use 30-lb. dumbbells for the farmers carry and push jerks.

Challenge yourself with deficit push-ups. If unable to finish them in 3 sets or less, reduce the reps. If you can do 10 unbroken, deficit push-ups during your warm-up, consider doing 15-20 reps per round. Choose a load that allows you to complete the first farmers carry and set of jerks unbroken.
