OK, what is a good replacement exercise for the wallball, I ain't got one, 20# ball that is.

Comment #1 - Posted by: timw at March 15, 2005 7:08 PM


The standard sub is dumbell thrusters with a 20# dumbell in each hand.

Comment #2 - Posted by: Eric 2 at March 15, 2005 7:28 PM

While deployed, we took a basketball and filled it with roughly 20# of sand. Taped it up with 100-mph tape. Still have it and it works ok in a pinch.

Comment #3 - Posted by: docbeetle at March 15, 2005 7:44 PM

First workout. 10 rounds even.

Comment #4 - Posted by: Andy LRod at March 15, 2005 8:44 PM

same here, just made mine for under $10. New Basketball, you can get 40#s of sand for $1.50 and sealant for about $3, plus duct/ 100mph tape.

Comment #5 - Posted by: John H. at March 15, 2005 8:44 PM

time was 16:46
run was ok
subbed the following:
10lbs db thrusters complete set
15lbs db thrusters 2 sets of 25
20lbs db thrusters 1 set of 20, 3 sets of ten and they nearly killed me....did all this while at work..we get pt time...i do feel that i am improving....arrrghh i hurt all over

Comment #6 - Posted by: robertb at March 16, 2005 12:16 AM

I was at the gym so i subbed (alternating) 3 x 30 sec rounds of kettlebells cleans (24kg) and 3 x 30 sec skipping between each set of wall ball

Got through 2 complete rounds then my phone rang twice and I lost my timing.

rested for a minute and then just did one flat out set of 50 wall ball for time, completed in 1:45

And I practiced some olympic lifting before hand and did 90 minutes of BJJ earlier in the day.

Comment #7 - Posted by: Don Stevenson at March 16, 2005 3:18 AM

As Rx'ed,


A lung burner for sure. Ran each 800m in just under 4 min. Wall ball very broken.

Comment #8 - Posted by: Will H at March 16, 2005 3:31 AM

Subbed 800 m. row for run
Subbed 20# db thrusters for wall ball

Comment #9 - Posted by: Todd H at March 16, 2005 4:04 AM

18:55 still have a cold but I found that eating on the Zone and doing the WOD has kept it away for the most part.

Comment #10 - Posted by: Michael P at March 16, 2005 5:24 AM

19:27, but with a 16# ball.

Comment #11 - Posted by: NANCE at March 16, 2005 5:24 AM

34 min.
Subbed 5lb db thrusters for wall ball

Comment #12 - Posted by: Jodi at March 16, 2005 5:45 AM


Subbed thrusters with a 45 lb plate for wallball.

My runs were hurting; usually i don't run intervals in the morning, just long, slow runs.

Nonetheless, I'm definitely awake now.

Comment #13 - Posted by: JSP at March 16, 2005 5:55 AM

well, this workout I learned about pacing. It made a BIG difference
subbed 20# DB thrusters for wallball shots
1st set was spastic: 15,8,7,7,7,5
the other 2 sets I did 5 sets of 10. felt much better! and quicker too

Comment #14 - Posted by: Steven N at March 16, 2005 5:58 AM

cf warm-up x 3 (samson,pullups,ohs,dips,good mornings,situps)

subbed 20 lb db for wall ball and ran 800's on the treadmill

24:43. hurt like hell.

Comment #15 - Posted by: mike at March 16, 2005 6:27 AM

Still have a lingering cold. I might hit the gym today and, if I do, I probably will not do the WOD. Probably will do some OHS, front squats, cleans, and snatches. Those don't require to much in the range of lung capacity, so I think that will be best when my head is filled with bad stuff. :)

Comment #16 - Posted by: brian_g at March 16, 2005 6:40 AM

30:32. Slow and ugly. Ball felt like it weighed 50 lbs. Many breaks.

Comment #17 - Posted by: davidjwood at March 16, 2005 7:09 AM

Neal's class today, which consisted of:
3 rnds. for time of:
800 m run/row
50 squats
40 situps
30 push-ups
20 pull-ups/body rows
and then, just for fun, 50 hang cleans.
It wasn't very pretty, as my brief friendship with Cindy (yesterday's WOD) haunted me today....but, as always, it was an excellent class.

Comment #18 - Posted by: Karens at March 16, 2005 7:24 AM

todays workout for those interested...
bleachers 20min
DB incline worked up to 1x13 w/ a pair 110's
Bent rows worked up to 1x3 w/150k
dips & chins 21,18,15,12,9,6,3 done in 6:22
This will be my last post for a while. I probably won't be doing very much or very intense crossfit between now and the weightlifting nationals in may. This thing is intended for the wod so it seems silly for me to keep posting non wod workouts. If your really interested in how i train leading up to nationals e-mail me and I'll be happy to e-mail you my workouts at the end of each week.

Comment #19 - Posted by: josh everett at March 16, 2005 7:39 AM


Used 2x10kg dumbbell thrusters for wall ball. Crushed.

Comment #20 - Posted by: Graham at March 16, 2005 7:45 AM

Thanks for posting the workout information. I will probably be emailing you for your workouts. Thanks again.

Comment #21 - Posted by: brian_g at March 16, 2005 8:19 AM

Oops... The above post was addressed to Josh. :)

Comment #22 - Posted by: brian_g at March 16, 2005 8:20 AM

Anyone else look at Josh's workouts and say, "yeeouch!"? I wish I'd discovered weights at an earlier age!

Comment #23 - Posted by: Ron N. at March 16, 2005 8:24 AM

Tony Budding set up an outstanding derivative of Fight Gone Bad at HQ.

It was 6 stations (all the regular FGB exercises + Burpees). Executed 5 rounds x 6 Stations for 30 total drills. However, the work/rest interval was 30 sec on, 30 sec off with a partner. An entirely different stimulus. Personally improved on box jumps, wall balls and push-press. Still need work on SDLHPs, rowing, and burpees. Scored a total of 411 pts.

Comment #24 - Posted by: Thompson at March 16, 2005 9:19 AM

Take no prisoners, Josh and kick some a$$ at nationals! Hang Tough, brother.

Comment #25 - Posted by: Thompson at March 16, 2005 9:21 AM


had 3 absolutely fantastic runs

used 2 x 10kg dumbells for thusters all sets broken

Comment #26 - Posted by: DavidE at March 16, 2005 9:28 AM

Platoon PT this morning:

~2.5 mile hill run and finished with lotsa pullups.

New PR with one max set of 39 pullups. Lost my grip on number 40 ... man I wanted that last one bad. I'll make the 40 pullup club someday. Errr!!

Comment #27 - Posted by: Mulcahy at March 16, 2005 9:40 AM

41 mins
The wall ball addition is a killer

Comment #28 - Posted by: Hooger at March 16, 2005 9:47 AM

19:38 as rx'd

wife did three rounds 10 push-ups/20 squats/30 sit-ups time 17:16

Comment #29 - Posted by: T.Rain at March 16, 2005 9:58 AM

25:45. Sub'd 20# thrusters for wall ball shots. Runs were at 8:12 pace at 1.0 incline on treadmill. Started with CF warmup with pushups x3. Between today and yesterday - too tired for extra ab/handstand work today.

Comment #30 - Posted by: Norma at March 16, 2005 10:09 AM

Used a 27# ball and 9' target for the wall ball. Unbroken the first set, last two sets went 30,20 with about a 20 second rest in the middle. My legs felt like lead for the last run - like they were ignoring my intense mental command urging them to MOVE! Time was 18:59.

Comment #31 - Posted by: Ryan Atkins at March 16, 2005 10:09 AM

3 rounds 800m run,20 lb.db's for thrusters x50 subbed for wall ball.


Comment #32 - Posted by: jtinch at March 16, 2005 10:10 AM

Forgot . . .
Burgener snatch drills w/pvc
Handful of straddle press to handstand (p-lettes and against wall) w/landings.
Skin the cat on rings
155# squat clean singles w/45 second rest.

Comment #33 - Posted by: Ryan Atkins at March 16, 2005 10:11 AM


Comment #34 - Posted by: hakim at March 16, 2005 10:18 AM

OH squats: 65/75x3 85/95/105/115x4 125x2
OH hold, top position: 135x45 seconds
OH hold, bottom position: 65X45 seconds
OH hold, duckwalking with 15# bar: 20 steps

WOD: 18:53 - 20# ball, 8 1/2' target, butt to 11" block. Actually managed to start two rounds with 30 wallball catches before needing a break. New PRs for me. POSE running with hands overhead when needed to keep from breaking frame (which was often!).

5x8/8 15# clubbell mills - tough with left pointer finger unable to grasp the club
3x8/8 10# clubbell short whips
4x5/5 15# clubbell parry casts - working to keep club vertical and increase my torso movement

1x11/11 44# kb snatches - hard to control the bell with my smashed left pointer finger out of commission....

18/7/14 second shoulder balances
22/30/39 forearm balances

Comment #35 - Posted by: kelly moore at March 16, 2005 10:35 AM

cf warmup x3

jump rope 4 minutes 3 rds
wall ball had a hole in it.Only did 10 reps w/it
then 4 sets of 10 w/25 lb dbs
last 2 rds 5 sets of 10 w/20lb dbs

Comment #36 - Posted by: dennyy at March 16, 2005 10:54 AM

c/f warm-up + handstands

sub 1000 m row for run
sub 50 20# DB thrusters for wall ball

after 10 reps, had to abandon 20# DBs.

sub 50 squats for wall ball

time: 24:30

that was most unpleasant. legs were jelly from yesterday's squats and first 1000 meters of rowing.

Comment #37 - Posted by: John Messano at March 16, 2005 11:02 AM

First time running outside!!! Ahh the fresh air. Felt great until I started wheezing "Oh f@#%!" at the end of the second & third runs. Only had a 6 pound medicine ball, so tried throwing 20' to 30' up the wall. Just one I start feeling like a fire breather, we start running again!!

Can you elaborate on the hands overhead? How does that help your running form?

Comment #38 - Posted by: Bob Cornute at March 16, 2005 11:32 AM

27:57 as prescribed, including about a minute giving directions to a lady who stopped as I was about to do the first set of wallball. I'm finally feeling like I'm getting into the groove on wallball, now I just need to work on staying in it for more reps.

Comment #39 - Posted by: Sam L at March 16, 2005 11:43 AM

Subbed rowing for runs and 20 pound DB thursters for wallball. I could have gotten a better time if I pushed myself harder still kicked my ass though. I'll keep getting better.

Comment #40 - Posted by: Joseph_B at March 16, 2005 11:57 AM


subbed wall ball for 30 reps thruster with pair of 16kg kettlebells.

loved this one!

Comment #41 - Posted by: karl at March 16, 2005 12:06 PM

20:30 as RX'd. Fun fun! Ran three miles, then helped the gym staff unload our new rubber dumbbells. Great workout! I had to move all of the heavy ones (60-115lbs) and replace them with the new ones. As a bonus, I now have 35, 40, 55, 65, and 75 pound dumbbells for my blossoming home gym!

Comment #42 - Posted by: Chris Q. at March 16, 2005 12:19 PM

Probably could have sped up the 800m run. All sets unbroken.Warmed up with a few exercises from Steve Maxwell's Cruel and Unusual Kettlebell Exercises for Real Men DVD. Used 1.5 pood KB. ended with an attempt at the Gladiator. Almost pulled it off. Legs feel unsteady now, and ankle is still a little sprained. Now off to BJJ class.

Comment #43 - Posted by: Ben E. at March 16, 2005 12:22 PM

Three rounds for time of:
Run 800 meters/50 Dumbell thrusters (2x 20# db)
1. 3:37/3:24 (21,15,10)
2. 3:37/3:59 (15,15,10,10)
3. 3:45/3:37 (15,15,10,10)

Comment #44 - Posted by: jdg at March 16, 2005 12:24 PM

woops that is supposed to be 25,15,10 for the thrusters in the first round... I can add!

Comment #45 - Posted by: jdg at March 16, 2005 12:27 PM

16:00 as Rx'd

22:29 w/ 18# DB Thrusters.

Josh, hope the training and competition go well!

Comment #46 - Posted by: Eric 2 at March 16, 2005 1:15 PM

I am intested in your workouts leading up to nationals Josh. are they like an active recovery or are they still heavy o-lifts?

I tried fran yesterday but my back would not allow the full thing so I got 21 thruster 21 pull-ups and 15 thrusters in 1:40

Have been nursing an injured back. The worst thing about that is listening to alot of ignorant people that think they know somthing just because they're old tell you that this stuff is bad for you, because they lifted 100 years ago and quite and now they hurt. And Jim I'm not talking about you, your advice to stop on fran yesterday probably saved me from more down time

Comment #47 - Posted by: Reed at March 16, 2005 1:16 PM

19:15. a painful 19:15.

Comment #48 - Posted by: sonny at March 16, 2005 1:36 PM

Executed the WOD with 20lb DB thrusters (broken sets). Total time: just under 30 minutes (missed the exact ending time).

Comment #49 - Posted by: Brand at March 16, 2005 1:48 PM

17:20 as prescribed.

Had a mint prior to starting. Wanted my breath to be fresh for Dr. Pukie.

Comment #50 - Posted by: ACM at March 16, 2005 1:51 PM


The only ball available was 10#, a 20# would have slowed me down considerably.

Comment #51 - Posted by: Lorie at March 16, 2005 1:55 PM


20# DB's and around 9.0-9.5MPH on the treadmill.

legs. are. sore.

Comment #52 - Posted by: Patrick Walsh at March 16, 2005 1:55 PM

Did two rounds. Subbed first round of running with 200 jump ropes and second round with 100 jump ropes.
Subbed 2 x 20# dumbbells for wall ball.

Comment #54 - Posted by: grady mac at March 16, 2005 2:56 PM

first time done unbroken and no walkin' for me
Used 13 pd ball (none others) but went extra low on the squat and threw way higher than 10 ft

Comment #55 - Posted by: timM at March 16, 2005 3:07 PM


First running in a long while. ITB started to lock up with 400 meters to go. I just made my new wall ball last night after seeing the WOD. Hurts like new

Used homemade 22# basketball filled with sand and wrapped in tape. I ran outdoors for the first time in a couple of months.

you don't need luck because you have SKILLZ!!! May you utilize them to the max!

Whadya think of sub'ing 50 yds of hopping on your hands using a power wheel for wall ball?

Three rounds for time of 29'42"83

Comment #60 - Posted by: LisaR at March 16, 2005 3:38 PM

About 31 minutes. I forgot to stop my watch. Not sure if loop is exactly 400 meters. I suspect it may be a bit more, but have never "wheeled" it.

Comment #61 - Posted by: barry cooper at March 16, 2005 3:45 PM


7:56 875 meter run 25/15/10 wallball
10:04 875 meter run 15/15/10/10 wallball

good to be back among the living and heaving

Comment #62 - Posted by: Patrick at March 16, 2005 3:52 PM

30 mins. Destroyed my homemade sandbags half way through the first round of wall ball so subbed 50 clap push ups each round instead.

Comment #63 - Posted by: rdc at March 16, 2005 4:04 PM

Good luck, Josh. Lots of crossfitters will be watching out for you.

Comment #64 - Posted by: jimbutts at March 16, 2005 4:07 PM

Finished all of the workout in 33:14 (minus transistion from track to gym)

Comment #71 - Posted by: Eagle_Eye at March 16, 2005 5:33 PM

20# db thrusters were a lot worse than I thought they would be. jumproped round 1 with a bad light jumprope, ergged round 2 and 3

Comment #72 - Posted by: brendan at March 16, 2005 5:42 PM


subbed 12lb medicine ball, didn't have a 20 pounder.

Comment #74 - Posted by: John H. at March 16, 2005 6:16 PM

Time: 19:45
Used a 10lbs ball. I gotta get the gym to get a bigger one.
Finished off with some CxJ's

Comment #75 - Posted by: Troy Archie at March 16, 2005 6:21 PM

24:47, much much harder than I thought it would be. It was nice here in Chicago so I did the run instead of subbing with jumprope. Ugly.

Comment #76 - Posted by: MPM at March 16, 2005 6:33 PM


Subbed 20# DB thrusters

Runs were done on the sand and distance was estimated. I think they were a little long.

First set unbroken. Second 2 sets very broken after the first 20 reps.

Comment #77 - Posted by: Ahmik at March 16, 2005 6:39 PM

CF warmup

Overhead Squat 45#x5, 85x5, 105x5, 95x5
The 105 felt shakier than I expected, and felt like it wanted to fall forward. I think it's because of my low energy today. I was hoping starting with the OH squats would shake my lethargy.

800M run on treadmill, subbed 20# DB Thrusters.

Comment #78 - Posted by: Stanton at March 16, 2005 7:02 PM

Subbed 20# DB thrusters

John 25:10

Comment #81 - Posted by: John P and Joe at March 16, 2005 8:44 PM


Ran 100 jog/run intervals for each 800
Subbed 40 pushups for the wall ball <--Maybe I should have done more, but this was the first time to try and wanted to see how it went.

My buddy finished a 1:20 behind me after puking with a lap and a half left in the last set....I'm sold.

Comment #82 - Posted by: EricS at March 16, 2005 8:58 PM

This is weird. 2 days in a row of the exact same score at Matt G. yesterday was i think squat different, but today, man there's some freaky connection.

subbed 6 kg. ball (heaviest gym has)


runs were 10 and 9.5 mph on treadmill, no incline; middle round rowed 800m on C2 (treadmills all taken)
lost several minutes with crowd issues (wah, wah)

Comment #86 - Posted by: Rene' at March 16, 2005 9:17 PM

gettin ready to redo the ol' PST so i basically eliminated the medicine ball from my workout.

1/2mi jog, 1/4mi walk

1.5mi run for time
time: 9:40

1/4mi walk, 1/2mi jog

freakin money...there was a strong (~10-15mph) headwind on the way out (which, of course, was a tailwind on the way back). regardless, i think it wouldve been faster w/o the wind and im even pumped w/ the 9:40. 9min is in the near future...hell yeah...i mean, hooyah. full ROM incline pushups on the paralettes before bed.

C2 rower and 15# db thrusters for subs
Working out before going to work definitely sets some deadlines.

1 pood kettlebell swings substituting for wall ball shots.

Comment #97 - Posted by: Ted Zink at March 17, 2005 5:35 AM

Subbed 10kg dumbells for wall ball shots.
I never realised what yesterday's WOD took out of my legs until I started my first set ot thrusters! 18:01 and PAIN!

Comment #98 - Posted by: dave_mac at March 17, 2005 6:42 AM


I just saw your post and I'm in awe!

Comment #99 - Posted by: dave_mac at March 17, 2005 6:45 AM

Did the run outside on the track. Thrusters with a 45# plate.


This one was a character builder. The wimpy part of me wanted to quit as I started the second run. Fortunately, Tough Guy would have no part of that -- Wimpy was bound, gagged and tossed in the corner for the duration.

Comment #100 - Posted by: RickB at March 17, 2005 8:07 AM

posting late...


subbed 10# ball x 70
we didn't have a 20# ball available.

Matt G. continues to awe me. Actually, a lot of you folks awe me.

19:46 w/ 30# ball

subbed 20# thrusters for wallball, otherwise as Rx'd, 20:27 including time for a quick bandage of the knuckle scrape I gave myself dropping a dumbbell on my hand (lesson learned - don't drop the stupid things on yourself!).

My legs are falling off, otherwise I'm just fine!

Calf cramped up on the run so I did 6 rounds of 50 wall balls in 17 minutes. Rested 10 minutes and did some paralette work.

37 minutes

Subbed 8# DB thrusters.

Substituted 25lb db thrusters for wallball. Broken into sets of 5-20. Thrusters continue to be the toughest workout for me.

Comment #110 - Posted by: TVP at March 17, 2005 7:56 PM

still fighting sinus/cold/flu or something.
did a bunch of subs.
3 rounds of:
skip rope x 500 turns
50 wallball shots 10# ball to 12' target
time = 27:36
i can't believe how bad i am at skipping rope.
each round of 500 took about 7 minutes.
one more thing in the long list of stuff to work on.

Subbed 15 pound dumbells for the wallball. Excellent workout.

Comment #114 - Posted by: steve3young at March 18, 2005 7:26 AM

I'm little off with crossfit's schedule so I did this today - on Friday. Plus i cut this in half. 400 m run with 12 lb ball.
Plus being a dummy - I forgot to check the clock.
But I did all 3 runs at a 2:40 pace. Slow I know!

Comment #115 - Posted by: Jim N at March 18, 2005 11:43 AM

3 rounds
960 meter run + 50 wall ball

Comment #116 - Posted by: connor at March 18, 2005 10:25 PM

WODs done out of order, but there you go.
Sub run with stationary bike 5 minutes; about my 800m slow run time. Roads are slush and slop now that the rain has come to melt 6 feet of snow. Yea.
Wallball as prescribed.

First time with a 20# ball (fab'd a homemade out of leftovers). Whole new world of pain.

Comment #118 - Posted by: Alex M. at March 20, 2005 7:30 AM


I felt like cr*p the whole way through that WOD. The runs were particularly painful.

Gotta get more sleep, I think.

Missed this WOD yesterday, so I've still got the thruster WOD this afternoon.
