What is a good sub for ring dips??
Or should I do regular just more reps?

First of all my heart-felt condolances to the Taylor family.
Second, couldn't do the rings and...well the rest.

Comment #5 - Posted by: Roger at July 5, 2005 7:19 PM

I'm going to do this workout tomorrow, instead of Ring Dips, I will do Jumping Pull-Ups.

My thoughts go to his family.

Comment #6 - Posted by: Dave at July 5, 2005 7:22 PM

I served with J.T. and I can say that he was a true PT animal. He would've been proud to have a Crossfit WOD named after him. I'm greatful to have served with such brave men, and thankful that there are some people in this country who understand the true quality and virtue of those who lost their lives this past week, and appreciate their selfless service.

Comment #7 - Posted by: dood at July 5, 2005 7:23 PM

I am very sad to hear about J.T.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family.


Comment #8 - Posted by: Brad at July 5, 2005 7:30 PM

It is sad to hear of the death of yet another warrior. It is an all to painful reminder that Freedom isn't free.

Thank you J.T. for serving. You will not be forgotten.

My thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends.

Erin, I'm very sorry for your loss. My prayers and thoughts go out to you and your family.

My two kids have mental and physical disabilities and they will never be able to defend themselves. It's heros like you J.T. that protect not only the strong but also the week. Thank you for serving J.T. You will not be forgotten.

No. Words.

Thanks for the tribute, Coach and Lauren. Every day your WOD notes and pictures show your hearts and it is entirely fitting to log on and see you honoring a fallen soldier.

Prayers and thoughts tonight for JT's family. Thank you, JT.

We lost truley amazing men in that crash, all good friends of mine. JT's locker was next to mine at ST-10. He will along with the others be deeply forgotten. I love you guys, you are all heros.tmac

Comment #28 - Posted by: Nani at July 5, 2005 11:12 PM

A fitting tribute.

He sounds like the kind of man we all aspire to be like.

My sincerest condolences to all who knew him.

No matter what it takes out of me, I'm going to finish this WOD and every movement will have everything my body can give it. Rest easy warrior, rest easy...

Comment #30 - Posted by: Erik at July 6, 2005 12:00 AM

Knowing this was for a fallen soldier pushed me through this one. A truly great WOD.

As Rx'd 12:30
HSPUs were forehead to the floor
All sets very broken

2nd WOD. Did a pretty good PT with my unit. 2mi. run out then circuit training, run the 2mi. back and finish with a 500m cool down swim.

JT you are a true warrior and hero. My condolences to Erin and JT's family and friends.

Comment #37 - Posted by: TimKl at July 6, 2005 4:00 AM

I haven't written in a while because I have been overseas serving with J.T. He was a great man, from the day I met him until the day he died. It was an honor to be in the same platoon and we had a great time doing our crossfit w.o.d.'s together. Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and prayers. I, and the rest of the boys, will miss him always.


Comment #38 - Posted by: sonny at July 6, 2005 4:35 AM

16:27. Doubled the number of dips as I don't have rings yet. HSPUs still lack depth. I tried a few with my feet on a bar but they did not feel right that way and I ended up in a handstand, dipping as far as I could. Pushups are still really difficult but I gutted them out full body on the floor. A few failures in there where I had to drop to my knees to come back up.

Sad to hear about JT.

Comment #39 - Posted by: Norma at July 6, 2005 4:40 AM

I will honor JT & Erin today. Your sacrifice will not be forgotten. God Bless You!

Comment #40 - Posted by: ACM at July 6, 2005 4:57 AM

can you sub hspu for pullups?

as a officer hopeful in the air force and a special tactics wannabe I hope that I can serve with as much bravery and dignity as JT.

Missed the last 10 HSPU's in the second round

Condolences to everyone related to Jeff Taylor

Comment #43 - Posted by: Bo H. at July 6, 2005 5:20 AM

Heartfelt sympathy to J.T.'s family, and deep appreciation for a hero's service to us all.

12:00, with modifications on HSPUs, and dips.

Comment #44 - Posted by: Pamela at July 6, 2005 5:30 AM

I always liked this quote by George Patton "Let me not mourn for the men who have died fighting, but rather let me be glad such heroes lived" I don't think it can be better said!!

Comment #45 - Posted by: Jay B at July 6, 2005 5:48 AM

Hard to put down words for such a moment - Action speaks volumes - I join the Crossfit Nation in a tribute to a brave man's action and pause in memory for J.T., his family and his fallen comrades.

I burned through it the best I could J.T.

My deepest appreciation to all the heros serving our country and my condolences to the Taylor family.

4:30 15# cb swipes - 85 reps
3x33 20# cb swings, 20 seconds rest

Sets of 3/3/2 minutes 15# cb mills with one minute break between rounds. Hand switch at 15 reps per 30 seconds.

WOD: 6:25 - nose to floor HSPUs, ring dips, pushups. First set of HSPUs and rings no breaks but when I started that set of pushups I was toast. Lots of breaks to finish the pushups. Breaks on everything after that.

Ironic that my HSPUs needed many fewer breaks than the same number of pushups.

Comment #49 - Posted by: kelly moore at July 6, 2005 6:01 AM

God Bless you J.T.

As a former sailor/seabee I'm forever grateful for your sacrifices and I can only bet your numbers would have easily smoked mine today ;-)

Comment #50 - Posted by: Matt Kight at July 6, 2005 6:03 AM

I send my condolences to JT's family and friends, may he rest in peace.

12:42- hspu still slowing me down

Comment #51 - Posted by: Matt D. at July 6, 2005 6:04 AM

I don't really know what to say. I will think of you and your family as I think of the others; I do hope that as strong as the memories stay that the pain fades away.

can barely do partial reps for HSPU so I did those and worked on static HS.
Broke the sets for the dips (which I did on bars) PU.

This was much harder than I thought it was going to be.

Comment #52 - Posted by: Ryan at July 6, 2005 6:05 AM

Hi all,
Workout as follows
Lisa HSPU's (uninterrupted), asssissted rings dips and push-ups (interrupted) Duration 9:00
Jon {one power clean/4 push presses (60# db's), squats 102 kilosx4, and bench presses 70 kilosx4}x10 (the eleventh set was of five each for a total of 45 reps/exercise. Duration 15:06
Until tomorrow...

Comment #53 - Posted by: Jonathan Jensen at July 6, 2005 6:16 AM

JT thank you for being a true warrior, you gave selflessley to your country. You paid the biggest price that one can pay for freedom. May God bless and keep your family and they know that you were fufilling your purpose in life.
Thank you.

Jeff Taylor is a true warrior who gave everything for freedom; his spirit will live forever. God bless you Erin, you are a true patriot.

Let's give this workout all that we have, in the hope that we can fight with half the valor and bravery that JT exhibited when our time comes...

Comment #57 - Posted by: OldTomcat at July 6, 2005 6:41 AM

Flight PT: 7 rounds of 10 shots wallball, 15 pushups, 10 box jumps. Finished with everybody doing 1 rope climb, 1 minute on treadwall.

Second the mention of the SOF Warrior Foundation- wonderful organization.

Comment #58 - Posted by: andrew at July 6, 2005 6:49 AM

My thoughts and prayers go to his family.
J.T. was a great guy, i had the privilage to be in the same platoon as him, our platoon misses him greatly a long w/ the rest of the guys we lost in that helo, and the guys they were on the ground that day. They were answering the call. God Bless J.T. and the rest of our fallen comrades, and may they rest in peace.

First set of HSPU's was PR at 16 consecutive; thereafter dismally degenerated into singles and doubles.

Comment #65 - Posted by: dennyy at July 6, 2005 9:01 AM

My heart sinks each time I read of the fallen overseas. My thoughts are with his entire family.

As I looked at this WOD, I thought to myself, "HSPU's? Maybe I'll do the painstorm in JT's honor."
After reading some of the posts, I just said, "F$#@ it! I'm doing HSPU's no matter how ugly!" I think it's only fitting to honor a warrior and a gentleman.

8:44, as RXed. Chest and shoulders roasted.

As a future Air Force officer and Pararescue hopeful, the sacrifice of Petty Officer 1st Class Taylor strike home with me. He died so that all of us may live as we please, and he will never be forgotten.

Rest in peace, warrior. You are a true hero.

I too have lost ranger buddies in the current War on Terror. They are all gone, but they wont be forgotten. Rest in Peace, JT.

HSPU even uglier and more broken than usual. Talk about season the meat.

Comment #72 - Posted by: Ahmik at July 6, 2005 9:51 AM

I have no words that could portray adequate respect to the fallen and nothing that might help heal the raw wounds and tears of those now left behind…

I can only offer my deepest respect and sympathies.

May time and peace heal all and see safely home your Brothers and Sisters, Fathers and Mothers.

Here is something I found that might apply in the spirit of the exemplary character shown and in keeping with X-fit:

“A sound body is a first-class thing; a sound mind is an even better thing; but the thing that counts for most in the individual as in the nation is character, the sum of those qualities which make a man a good man and a woman a good woman.”

My heartfelt condolences to the Taylor family.

Unfortunately it doesn't look like I will be able to hit this one today. Just finished an extended 19 hour shift. Contacted and arrested two 24 year old males who were molesting two 14 year girls. To make a long story short (and less graphic!). the girls are now home safe and the two rapists are in custody. Although I planned to hit this one hard in honor of JT I have got to hit the rack. In place of a workout tribute I dedicate this arrest to JT and all of the Little Creek club that are out there getting it done.

HSPU negatives on 2nd and 3rd rounds.

Comment #78 - Posted by: John Messano at July 6, 2005 10:27 AM

Very old words, fitting for heroic men like JT and crew:

"And they are surely to be esteemed the bravest spirits who, having the clearest sense both of the pains and pleasures of life, do not on that account shrink from danger...

None of these men were enervated by wealth or hesitated to resign the pleasures of life; none of them put off the evil day...

But, deeming that the punishment of their enemies was sweeter than any of these things, and that they could fall in no nobler cause, they determined at the hazard of their lives to be honorably avenged, and to leave the rest.

They resigned to hope their unknown chance of happiness; but in the face of death they resolved to rely upon themselves alone.

And when the moment came... on the battlefield their feet stood fast, and in an instant, at the height of their fortune, they passed away from the scene, not of their fear, but of their glory."

--Thucydides Pericles' Funeral Oration

Did a warmup of: Sampson stretch, situps x 10, mountain climbers x 20, back extensions, x 10, jump rope 50 turns. Did that circuit twice.

Swam 500 meters afterwards.

My thoughts are with JT's family.

We did our own CF PT this morning, but I will bust this one out when I get home tonight for JT and all my lost bros.
Nothing is harder than leaving the wife and kids and not knowing if you will see them again. My heart is broke for all our families that have suffered this loss.
Thank you to the CF community for recognizing JT. And one last word...keep the pressure on our government to get this job done. Almost 4 years after 9/11 and we are still dicking around with this with kid gloves. The enemy will not give up until we are dead or converted to wahabism. This needs to get sorted out, resolve is waning in the government, don't let it happen.

J.T. and other warriors did more than their share. God bless this great country and those who defend her. I look forward to today's WOD in honor of our fallen heroes.

Comment #101 - Posted by: Mike N at July 6, 2005 12:51 PM

Did not have rings, so I used chairs for the dips. Handstand pushups:
1st round 7x2 8x1
2nd round 15
3rd round 9
Pushups, dips, unbroken

7.5 min

America was built, and is maintained, by many different types of people. Jeff Taylor and his Fellows were the type, who's loss, we will not ever fully recover from. I hope more details make it out, but until then I offer this in reflection of our Captain America's...

As designated...12:24.65

Did my first totally freestanding HSPU...that one's for you JT.

"It is not the critic that counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or the doer of deeds could have them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the Arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but he who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great devotion; who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails while daring greatly, knows that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls, who know neither victory nor defeat."
-- Theodore Roosevelt

If any ever questioned the quality or patriotism of those who's efforts & passion are reflected in this forum; never doubt it again. You each individually give meaning & purpose to the sacrifices great & small, which make service to this nation the greatest honor and privlege.

Thank you J.T. for making the ultimate sacrifice. My deepest condolences to his family.

And I have to ask, did J.T. have the world's strongest triceps? HSPU's devolved to 'collapse on floor from handstand position' by round three. Took me 13:57.

- substituted Regular dips for ring dips.

Comment #118 - Posted by: Steve H at July 6, 2005 2:58 PM

My condolences to J.T.'s family and friends. These presses are my weakest link. HSPUs assisted with heels over bar. Did regular dips in 2nd and 3rd rounds. 34:30.

Comment #119 - Posted by: StephenT at July 6, 2005 3:00 PM

12:48. Substituted normal dips for ring dips. concentrated on good form.

Comment #120 - Posted by: dev at July 6, 2005 3:00 PM

My condolences to the Taylor family; my thanks to those serving and sacrificing for our nation. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the servicemen, their families and the ones they are close to.

warmup * 3 = jumprope 1 min; 10 OH lunges; 10 incline situps; 10 back ext.; 6 pullups.
WOD 21:43 = rd1-7:03; rd2-8:15; rd3-6:26

first set of hspu's showed progress - getting down further and set a personal best of 10; otherwise, my shoulder strength deteriorated as the workout progressed.

Comment #121 - Posted by: Patrick at July 6, 2005 3:01 PM

9:38 for JT with respect.
HSPU's from smith rack
dips weighted (25 lbs)
Rest easy, bro.

Did a set of 1/1 40kg KB dead hang snatches every 45 secs for 20 minutes (26 sets)

5x1/1 assisted 1 arm pullups (other arm about 1/2 way between the working arms hand and elbow)

Comment #123 - Posted by: Bill Fox at July 6, 2005 3:44 PM

ROM for HSPU- Nose to floor (21), forehead to floor (15) and head to floor (9).

Rings were solid. Pushups chest to floor. Never knew pushups could hurt so good.

12:34. So close Matt, so close.


Comment #124 - Posted by: Dan S. at July 6, 2005 3:45 PM

Rest in peace JT and God bless the Taylor family.

Subbed DB Press for HSPU
40 lbs x 14
35 lbs x 7
30 lbs x 15
25 lbs x 9

Used the machine for dips as my shoulders and back are now wasted and could not finish the push ups for the same reason. I am feeling pretty weak right now!

For JT - Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori.

Condolences to the Taylor family, condolences to a country that lost another hero. Not too many WODs named after males...like a Crossfit Medal of Honor or 21-gun salute.

BW=205, as prescribed, most hspu to forehead, some to nose. Weak today: 26:46.98.

Comment #132 - Posted by: jimc at July 6, 2005 4:56 PM

Substituted hspus for elevated push ups and ring dips for dips. 12:50. Managed 17 dips in first round, a personal best.

12:57...though hspu started strong, they deteriorated quickly as did push ups and dips. deceptively difficult wod. thought of j.t. on the last 2 dips and powered thru them.

5 rounds 16:07 with staff

can't imagine doing the snatches with 95 lbs

Comment #138 - Posted by: Allen Yeh at July 6, 2005 5:45 PM

18:37 and probably 20% of this time was giving up on HSPU's and switching over to 30# db's for presses. Managed only 7 HSPU's then converted to presses. Did all ring dips though.

Comment #139 - Posted by: Steve S at July 6, 2005 5:49 PM


My Age. Makes me sad that JT just made 30. The life of a Warrior is like that. Condolances to his family.

HSPU Broke, but first time just assisted, not held
Reg Dips, some broken
Pushups, some broken
Just glad to be able to post. Weird times....

Comment #140 - Posted by: Chrispy at July 6, 2005 5:55 PM

Did HSPU's with feet on wall-more of an incline than vertical. Dips subd with bar dips. shoulda doubled but also did yesterdays WOD immediately after but 4 rds. 16:46....oww stress fractures feel like they never heal. The JT wod was awesome I enjoyed the fatigue.

Comment #156 - Posted by: Dana at July 6, 2005 8:16 PM

Erin, we are praying for you and your family.


Subbed 2x bar dips for ring dips (42-30-18). HSPUs were 3/4 depth on the 1st round, 1/4 depth on the 2nd, and about 1/8 (little more than shrugs) on the 3rd. Talk about maxing out the triceps!

Comment #157 - Posted by: Eric2 at July 6, 2005 8:18 PM

Used 15lb dumbbells for overhead press instead of HSPU's
Did jumping ring dips
Pushups were unbroken on toes
Did 21,15 and 9 seconds of handstands against a wall.

God Bless J.T., his family and all those who serve our country.

Comment #158 - Posted by: Krista at July 6, 2005 8:31 PM


Subbed dips for ring dips (no rings)

1st time doing HSPUs for a WOD. I've been practicing the position and have not done that many reps until now. Not full range of motion, but 1/4 to 1/2. It was a honor to do this workout in J.T.'s memory.

Deepest respect to the heroism of Jeff Taylor. Deepest sympathy to his family and his "band of brothers".

4 consecutive HSPU(new PR) on first round.
all broken except last 9 dips(fixed bar) and pushups.

21-15-9 reps of:
Handstand push-ups

For time of 12'20"31

First time doing the HSPU's. I've been doing hanging push-ups with feet elevated because I didn't think I could do them. Did first set of 21 uninterrupted, but everything broken after that. Guess the hanging push-ups we're a good sub for the HSPU's.

Comment #164 - Posted by: Adam B at July 6, 2005 9:38 PM

Not sure if it's a fitting tribute, but I got my ass up in the air for the first round of HSPU's! Had to use the Smith machine to hang my feet, but goddammit I said I'd do it and I did!
Then, some doofus came and took the machine.
Dips sucked, push ups rocked.

Hope J.T. was an ass kicker, because the workout in his honor sure is!! Thanks for the service, J.T. For those still on watch, you have the gratitude of a nation!!
Kick ass; come home safe.

Negatives on HSPUs after about rep 6 (top of head to floor otherwise).

No rings so I did dips with 21 lbs added on fixed parallel bars.

This workout made me think it was "MOTHER!@#*ing ARMS DAY!"

To J.T. and all the operators there putting it on the line - my appreciation can't even be expressed in words. My condolances to the family can't even be expressed in tears.

JT- How many times have we hit it hard together? How many times have you smoked me? I hit this one with you by my side again.

You are a hero brother. An honor and an inspiration to all of us who have stood in the line with you. Your spirit will keep us strong as it always has. No mistake, I will exact vengeance.

Erin- I will be home soon and I will bring the rest of the boys with me. Know that we are with you. Much love

Time 21:30 as Rx'd
HSPU's started going down to 4-10lbs plates w/ heels against the wall but it went all down hill from there and I ended up just doing partials.
Ring Dips felt good, as did push-ups.

Comment #172 - Posted by: Troy Archie at July 7, 2005 6:44 AM

Did the first round of HSPU and then had to switch to overhead db presses.

Still wanted to try this workout, only to honor the fact that I live in a place that is safe and free. The man whom this is dedicated to died taking the fight to the enemy that wants to destroy our freedom. I will never be half the man that he was.

very late, but I wanted to post this special WOD anyway

subbed 50# db press for HSPU (only one db so it took a bit longer doing 21 x left then 21 x right, etc.); also bar dips

Though I did not know JT personally I see the impact he had on the lives around him from these many expressions of support and love. My sympathies are with Erin and all those close to JT.

Nicole and I were finally able to do this WOD in honor of JT in our apartment at the end of a long day. I am humbled by JT's commitment to our country and the commitment of all the Navy Seals I've been fortunate enough to meet over the past few months. We're better off for these great men. I'm also humbled by the workout. HSPUs are always a challenge, not to mention after dips (done on the backs of two kitchen chairs) and pushups. Today the sets were very broken up. Tony 15:41. Nicole 12:25.

Did this one a few days ago:

Subb'd regular dips as no rings available.

Time: 9:23
All first sets unbroken. All remainding sets broken except regular dips.

JT was a teammate, friend, warrior, and a brother. He was one hard, extreme man who always had a way of pushing people to excell to a higher level. I'm sure he was taken from our world because God needed an ass kicker, one of the best. This workout will forever be his ass kicker as a reminder of his work ethic.

Broken sets, good WOD.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you, Erin, and to all of J.T.s family and friends. I sincerely hope that I will prove to live a life worthy of J.T.s sacrifice.

I have been deeply humbled by all the men and women of uniform that I have been fortunate enough to meet during my years at CrossFit. I greatly respect your virtue and honor, your commitment and sacrifice. ...You have all impacted me deeply. You make me strive to be a better person.

J.T., ...you will not be forgotten.


...I will give everything I got for this workout tonight.
