For thirty minutes:
Five ring dips
Post rounds completed in thirty minutes to comments. E.G. 21 2/3 rounds. If you (still) don’t have rings perform 10 dips per round. Where needed, break each set of five into manageable chunks.
This is a tough sit-up, really tough. We found some gravity boots at a garage sale for $4. Jimmy Baker, looking great and pushing 60, is reaching for the bar with the boots attached to the bar. On the right, "Young Zack" demonstrates the same “hanging sit-up” in our ankle harness and ring-spotting rig.

17 rounds - amazingly, I didn't have to break down any of the pullups-they stayed strong and high during all the sets. The situps were easy and a nice break. The ring dips were my downfall. Tyler was right, the ring dips did humble me. The first six sets were good and deep, the remaining sets were in various states of breakdown to reach 5 reps before going on to the next movement, but I did manage 17 sets of 5 reps. Keeping the rings close to my body became a real challenge.
20.1 rounds..... great workout... loved every moment of it....
22 and some change. I did the 10 parrallel bar dips though, instead of the 5 ring dips, and I think this made the workout easier. However, I was still upset with my score because I had to share my dipping and pull-up station with others and had to spot a guy in the bench press a couple of times, which I think slowed me down. Maybe I would have ended up needing that rest anyway towards the end though.
21 Rounds..also used standard dips. Sit-ups on a decline bench. If I did all those sit-ups on the floor or ABMAT my tailbone would not have skin for 30 days.
25.3333333333333333333333333333 rounds. Used the parallel bars for dips- no rings in my gym.
8 1/3 rounds. im still learning and love it
17 rounds; get some rings boys. It makes a difference!!
20 rds. Did the dips on the parallel bars. Sure that made it easier. Still was difficult. Ready for the WOD for Saturday.
17 rounds. 10 parallel bar dips each time, didn't have rings available. The few times I've done ring dips, they've been worse . . . I doubt that the two-for-one substitution is really hard enough (compared to ring dips). I was doing really fine, on track at the 15 minute-minute mark for turning 21, 22 rounds total . . . and all of a sudden the clock got faster.
My performances lately (relative to the APCP . . .Average Posted CrossFit Performance) seem to be deteriorating . . . I wish y'all would stop embarassing me . .
12 rounds. This was a tough one for a 235 pound guy. I used rings for the first time, and I would much prefer doing 10 regular dips to 5 of those monsters. My form was not good. Most of them were just to 90 degrees at the elbow. I couldn't get any deeper and get back up, and even so I had to break all but the first couple of sets up. My rings are Highland Games rings, like they use for the 56 and 28. I've had them a while, and pulled them out and they worked.
I did some Rolling Thunder holds and 6 throws with my 56 for height to complete the workout.
