Perfect Gym!!! Only bound by your imagination.

Comment #1 - Posted by: Sully at August 27, 2005 5:43 PM

The best kind of gym right there. Can't wait to do tomorrow's workout.

Comment #2 - Posted by: J at August 27, 2005 5:57 PM

Is there one of those in your community??
Can't wait till tomorrow!! Thanks CF for improving my life!!

BTW- my wife (Group x instructor-15 years) started with me today. She looked at HSPU and said, "I can't do those!" I said,"Sure you can, let's go!" We went to the wall..with a little help, she did them! She is excited!!! Another 'new born' Crossfitter! Thanks CF

I hope the bathrooms are cleaner than most gas station's.

how much weight for the lunges?

Comment #8 - Posted by: Mike D at August 27, 2005 7:47 PM

Hmmmm...what's the climate?

I could see extending an awning or overhang out from the garage so that you double the high bay area, maximizing the workouts you could do outside, but still make it feel like you are "inside" when you are there and not just in the parking lot. Awnings to wrap around to include the heads (bathrooms for you lubbers). An in-your-face Crossfit sign on top perhaps with Pukey on there (maybe not, depends on audience). A setup with 10' climbing ropes outside. The key is to have drive-bys see people sweating and really working out.

This place is probably located where it gets drive by traffic. Adjust and use that advantage. Sell the diff between crossfit and

Comment #9 - Posted by: MikeY at August 27, 2005 7:55 PM

Lunges are bodyweight, you can check the slideshow in the "Exercises" link on the left on the main page.

Comment #10 - Posted by: Jesse Woody at August 27, 2005 8:05 PM

Uh oh, I am feeling a sigh of relief. This one must be a lot more difficult than I am thinking.

Comment #11 - Posted by: Jon at August 27, 2005 8:50 PM

Hey Trevor,

A realistic assist for handstand pushups is possible. I'll try my best to describe. I stand about a foot from my dip bars(side part of the apparatus), back to the bar. Then I put my hands on the floor in handstand position and lift one leg at a time behind me and hook my feet over the bar. I'm now inverted and do the pushups with the feet/hip flexors pulling to assist my pushing efforts. I hop that wasn't as clear as mud.

There was a pic that showed this on here but I can't find it.

Hope that helps.

Comment #12 - Posted by: Rob M. at August 27, 2005 8:55 PM

I think I get your point with the garage pic! Very clever. However, my post is regarding the picture of in the sidebar of your web page...

Is that Cil????????

Comment #13 - Posted by: scott blanchard at August 27, 2005 9:22 PM

yep, that garage is lookin' shaweeeeeeeet baby :)

Prices around here are super expensive, it's insanity. Eventually I feel we all find our gem - that perfect place for the perfect price - it's just meant to be!

Until then, it's parking lots, fields, garages, my back yard and the park! It all works great for me :)

Comment #14 - Posted by: zach at August 27, 2005 9:41 PM

Well, this was my first attempt at handstand pushups, and I don't think I moved more than a couple of inches on any of them, but I did 10 instead of 15 for a total time of 14:50. And for the record, I'm not going to be able to walk tomorrow.

Comment #15 - Posted by: Hilary at August 27, 2005 10:19 PM

here's the hspu video described above. it's from 050820.

Comment #16 - Posted by: TommyT at August 27, 2005 10:24 PM

Looking forward to this one. Only the lunges might slow me down, my quads are sore.

Comment #17 - Posted by: Webster at August 27, 2005 11:08 PM

The lunges were the killer. Had a good time with this one today. HSPU are nice and easy for me now after a year of CF.

WOD=10:31:55 for 5 rds.

hspu's 1/2 rom on all assisted against wall.
100ft walking lunges

Comment #23 - Posted by: dennyy at August 28, 2005 7:14 AM

13:15, not happy with ROM on the pushups but large improvement on balance from last time I did these. I'll have to go back and measure, not sure if I did 100ft or 100m.

Comment #24 - Posted by: BrianW at August 28, 2005 7:22 AM

Legs were shot, hspu were short on the rom. 10 min 02 sec.

Comment #25 - Posted by: Anand B. at August 28, 2005 7:38 AM

7:50 as Rx'd.

Lunges were 50' up a hill, then reverse. Great workout this AM.

Comment #26 - Posted by: brian_g at August 28, 2005 7:40 AM

First time poster, been doing x fit for about a month now
5 km run to start
Couldn't do hspu:-( replaced with dive bombers
managed 4 rounds in 8:28, dive bomers were getting pretty loose by the end

Comment #27 - Posted by: Greg at August 28, 2005 7:44 AM

5:39 - HSPUs nose to carpet, left knee just kissing the ground, right just above the ground on walking lunges.

45 kipping pullups - new PR by one rep. The bar I used is smaller than 3/4" diameter and it is painful; I much prefer the 1" plumbing fixture bar in Lynne's gym. Time to modify my power rack to accomodate not only two 1" bars over the top rails for muscleups, but one 1" bar under the top rails for pullups too.

4x6 ring dips - deep as possible, turning hands out and rings held away from body at support position.

3x5/5 62# one hand kb swings to shoulder height.

No OH squat work; my right knee doesn't want to bend enough to allow butt to ankles depth.

Comment #28 - Posted by: kelly moore at August 28, 2005 8:08 AM

Total time: 10:07

HSPU assisted with feet on bar set across high bench stands. Used paralettes for full ROM.
Walking lunges approx. 100': 34 lunges, approx. 1m / lunge.

R1: 0:49, 1:24; total: 2:13
R2: 0:49, 1:13; total: 2:02
R3: 0:51, 1:40; total: 2:31
R4: 0:49, 1:06; total: 1:55
R5: 0:39, 0:49; total: 1:28

Need to push harder on the lunges. Was able to really crank up the juice on the last round; should have been doing this from the outset.

Could not complete HSPUs on rounds 1, 4, and 5 (either the bar fell off the stands, or my arms / shoulders gave out and i used my face to break my fall -- interesting feeling, that was).

So, the moral of today's story is twofold: 1) be very careful using a bench and bar set up; 2) work on unassisted HSPUs! Oh, and maybe put a pillow or two in the crash zone to save my grill next time.

after yesterday's WOD, these were a real bitch!!

HSPU assisted with feet on fence of a tennis court, and lunges across entire court (121ft)

5 sets as rx'd

Comment #33 - Posted by: doron at August 28, 2005 8:39 AM

13:44 with HSPU to about 1/3 to 1/2 depth

Comment #34 - Posted by: Sam L at August 28, 2005 8:59 AM

Done as Rxd... HSPU's down to 1-2 reps in later stages of rounds 4-5. Tried to keep full depth. 16:58

Comment #35 - Posted by: Paul Peterson at August 28, 2005 9:01 AM

did my own WOD, (HSPU still hard on my rehab)

6 rounds:
5 x 128# squat C&J(a magic 30 reps)
10 pull-ups
The explosion on the PU is impressive after the C&J

this WOD done as:
5 rnds
6 x 135# squat C&J
15 pullups would be a crossfit winner in the 20 min range

Comment #36 - Posted by: Jim Howe at August 28, 2005 9:09 AM


Subbed the "feet on bar" handstand pushups to get reps...I can't get full ROM with a "real" handstand pushup, especially for 15 straight!

Comment #37 - Posted by: Jesse Woody at August 28, 2005 9:13 AM


hspu were done at an angle...will try the assisted method next time

Comment #38 - Posted by: paulw at August 28, 2005 9:21 AM

Did a bunch of partial reps for the HSPU's and worked on my static handstand.

Comment #39 - Posted by: RyanA at August 28, 2005 9:27 AM

10:18. Assisted HSPUs.

Comment #40 - Posted by: Chewie at August 28, 2005 9:33 AM

as Rx'd
Knee close to floor on walking lunges.
Finally stong enough to kick up into a handstand and hold it by myself. HSPU against a wall and not very deep, but huge improvement anyway. Did a few sets (5 reps ea) of shoulder press with 15 lb db's. Finished with 50 sit-ups and hollow rocks.

Comment #41 - Posted by: Krista J. at August 28, 2005 9:36 AM

The garage has a ton of potential! I like the roll up doors in the front for easy transitions to the 400meter runs when doing Kelly or another of A-- kicking WOD! Where is this located? You got to love the vision and "McGyver" attitude of Cross Fiters!

Comment #42 - Posted by: DJ at August 28, 2005 10:32 AM

26:27, breaks in hspu's,lunges too easy, add weight next time

Comment #43 - Posted by: OPT at August 28, 2005 10:56 AM

cfwu x3

WOD: 12:58 w/ fence assisted HSPU on the paralettes for odd rounds and negatives for evens. tried to gently 'kiss' the ground w/ my knee on each lunge, but my gentle kiss quickly turned into a ninth grader's not-so-gentle head butt. and then i started over-correcting and whiffed a few times.

squat skill work later and maaaybe a little swim.

Comment #44 - Posted by: ediddy at August 28, 2005 11:05 AM


i never think walking lunges are going to hurt...and then they do.
wall-assisted hspu's, depth still a problem.

Comment #45 - Posted by: CodyC at August 28, 2005 11:42 AM

i can't believe everybody can do handstand pushups! wouldn't that be like loading up bodyweight on a bar and doing military presses? I'm curious how many of youse can do that many military presses with bodyweight?

Comment #46 - Posted by: paul at August 28, 2005 11:53 AM

14:10 AS RX'D. I added some sprints in B/C of missing yesterday. I was smoked!!


Comment #47 - Posted by: tenacious "D" at August 28, 2005 12:22 PM

CFwu - CrossFit HB style, ugh!

11:13 hot day

1/2 ROM on the HSPU's but that's an improvement... Decent depth on the squats. Thanks again for the coaching on the stretches yesterday Mike; big help.

Comment #48 - Posted by: Steve HB at August 28, 2005 12:27 PM


full ROM, assisted against Smith-machine.

Comment #49 - Posted by: John Messano at August 28, 2005 12:47 PM

Hi all,
Paul, HSPU are probably easier than pressing bdw. Even still, I can't manage to do any.
Workout as follows
Lisa {Lunge walk 100' and military presses 35 kilosx15 (5,5,5)}x5. Duration 13:00.
Jon {Snatch 65 kilosx2, PP 65 kilosx3, KTE'sx4}x15. Duration 20:12. Average HR 152 bpm.

self-assisted HSPU (see above video) as RX'd

Lunges gave me flashbacks to my rowing days

Comment #53 - Posted by: Sandy S at August 28, 2005 1:20 PM

wow. didnt think this was going to be bad until i started. hspu against a wall and rom was limited. pretty disappointed in that but was able to do a few of them w/o the wall for support. slow progress to a true hspu.

great workout thanks coach.

Comment #54 - Posted by: jeremiah at August 28, 2005 1:30 PM

13:11, hooked ankles on low pull-up bar for hspu. 30 walking lunges (assume that's ~100ft)

12:08 (emily), but just did handstands against the wall.

Comment #55 - Posted by: kevindhodges at August 28, 2005 1:54 PM

Me: 9:30 HSPU assisted (as shown in the video posted above)

Michelle: 12:45 subbed HSPU with PU, and then some handstand practice after.

Comment #56 - Posted by: AdamY at August 28, 2005 2:19 PM

13:23 Working odd hours for a few days, not a bad time considering work and sleep shifting. Focus on rom again next time.

10:25, subbing 30 reps of pushups with legs on 2ft incline.

Still can't get the hspu down, I'll try the assisted method next time.

Comment #62 - Posted by: Travis G. at August 28, 2005 3:58 PM

Did this one in the backyard on a beautiful day. HSPUs against the house and fence. The ones against the fence were a little assisted with some help with my feet.
Finished off with a decent stretching session and pull-up work emphasizing on top and bottom holds.

Comment #63 - Posted by: Troy Archie at August 28, 2005 4:05 PM

Worked on casevac/trauma procedures including 100 meter stretcher drills with full kit minus ammo.

WOD 7:45
HSPU were assisted with same technique as the video. Legs are smoked ,cooked, and ready to be eaten.

Comment #64 - Posted by: Sandy Slayer at August 28, 2005 4:07 PM


While I'm not sure how I would do comparing bodyweight military presses vs 12" stool HSPUs (I should give this a try), the overall range of motion will make a huge difference in the results. My WOD time today would have been at least 4x greater had I used 12" stools. Here's how I think of HSPUs:

HSPUs done with hands on the ground are something like quarter ROM bar presses (easy); HSPUs done with hands on 6" platforms are closer to half ROM presses (harder) and when done nose to carpet off 12" stools they are more like full or greater-than-full range presses (very hard). Using rings as my platform again increases the challenge.

Comment #65 - Posted by: kelly moore at August 28, 2005 4:12 PM


time for lehigh group. A lot of pullup work and kip practice followed.

Comment #66 - Posted by: brendan melville at August 28, 2005 4:13 PM

Weight 78.7kg, 11.6 b/f.

Kelly last time 33 mins (5 * (Run 400m, 30 Reebok step jumps, 30 * 40lb barbell thruster)).

This time 27.17. Weight good, less resting next time.

Comment #67 - Posted by: Matthew Townsend at August 28, 2005 4:14 PM


Used smith machine assist for HSPU but made sure my nose touched each time. On the last round of lunges I decided to add a 9# body bar overhead. Legs are smoked.

Comment #68 - Posted by: Rico at August 28, 2005 4:28 PM


HSPUs against the wall, to a 2 inch pad on the floor, so not quite full range yet.
Finished up with back lever, attempts at a front lever, muscle ups and dips on rings.

Comment #69 - Posted by: Paul Si at August 28, 2005 4:52 PM

did assisted HSPU against and wire fence in a playground zone. Needless to say i have to pick a few pebbles out of my skull.

I modified the squats by pressing a PVC pipe overhead ala OHS

Comment #74 - Posted by: Eric2 at August 28, 2005 5:30 PM

Non-WOD tonight; my left shoulder is kind of hinky, and despite Coach's best attempts to sabotage tomorrow's dawn 5k "Mandatory Fun Run" (leave it to the Air Force to develop the double oxymoron) by trashing my legs even further, I took a bye on the lunges too.

Bench: 145x5
Ring dips (on my spiffy new PVC rings) 6/10/10/8
Setted with kipping pullups: 10/10/15

After second round, HSPUs were broken like an 8 track.


Comment #78 - Posted by: Maurice at August 28, 2005 6:13 PM


HSPU's top of head to floor, back to wall, very
broken but with as little wall assistance as
possible. Got five in a row at beginning of each
round before breaking into 3's,2's & singles.

Lunges unbroken.

Chased neighbor's escaped hounds after 2 rounds of Kelly yesterday.

Came back today with combo WOD, performed with my 7th grader & 8th grader:

5 rounds
100' walking lunges
20 box jumps
10 military press, 95# (modified down for the kids).

Should of been quicker, but had to wait for a guy to work in on the pull-up/dip bar I use for my HSPU's between rds 3,4,&5. The Lunges smoked my legs! Finished w/:15 on the bike to help w/knee pain and 5 rds of 10 windshield wipers.

Another very nice day today, so I decided to do the workout at the track again. Found a way to work on my HSPU. Hooked my feet over the fence that surrounds the track and did all sets of HSPU unbroken. I think I have the strength to do them unassisted, just not the balance. Any tips?

Comment #86 - Posted by: Jon at August 28, 2005 7:32 PM


Five rounds for time of:
100 ft Walking lunge
15 Handstand push-ups(ASSISTED):10/5,11/5,10/5,10/5,11/4

TIME: 17:47

Comment #87 - Posted by: scott mcandrews at August 28, 2005 8:16 PM

Last time, did assisted HSPU by hooking my ankles on a bar dip. This time, I did them against a wall. Very different. Had maybe 1/4 ROM. Lunges were not a problem. The HSPU; those were another story altogether.


Comment #88 - Posted by: EMelton at August 28, 2005 8:26 PM

Time: 25:12

The lunges were not problematic. First time doing HSPU and I had to use a wall for balance. I did 1/4 the range of motion. Definitely felt it.

HSPU were with my feet up on the smith machine bar.

The lunges seemed longer than 100ft. Didn't measure it.

Comment #93 - Posted by: Keith W. at August 28, 2005 10:01 PM


Some HSPUs done on my computer desk, some done at a ~60' incline. I'm getting better at those, which excites me. Did one free-standing one completely by accident trying to demonstrate an HSPU to the family. I just kinda floated off the wall and then pushed back up. It was cool.

Comment #94 - Posted by: David Knutzen at August 28, 2005 10:43 PM


3 sets of 5 reps of "the exercise" a la Coach Dan John. Very humbling but jumped in there. Went 75,85 then 95 pounds.

WOD - 15 min assisted HSPU.

Didn't train Sunday as travel back from tornament. Shins and foot still brusied today(monday) so sub'd in 45min of interval work on spin bike for the 5km run because im doing a team trathlon in a few weeks and im the rider. Ave HR 151bpm
Hopefully can give Kelly and todays WOD a go tomorrow.

Airsoft Wargames instead of WOD,

100+ deg F, all hills, full fatiuges, lots of gear, and at least one visit to the hospital for heat exhaustion. When he started puking up blood, I was trying to remember all the stuff I read about Rhabdo. . . Turns out he is going to be okay (don't think it was Rhabdo just HE).

Thanks to the Napa CHP for directing us to the nearest Hospital.

Sunday was my second day back after a week of rest. On Saturday I was graciously hosted at Brand X martial arts by Jeff Martin for both a Krav Maga class and his "Outdoor Chipper" crossfit workout. The A to S stations along with the incredible heat out there were a devastating combination. Thanks Jeff!

Lunges: 75 ft lunge then 25 ft heel/toe/knee
HSPU: All broken, some freestanding but most against the wall. ROM: to about 1-2" nose from floor.

First WOD back from vacation. Good way to get back into it.

crossfit boulder creek:

Beth: 18:33 first round of hspu was normal. After that switched to regular pushups. We were outside and the weeds got in the way of full range of motion handstand ones. I was annoyed.

Kim and Allison - 20 minutes. knee push ups.

OH - I forgot to add that we had a handyman here at the house doing work on the deck while we worked out. His comment: "handstand pushups? That's Bruce Lee stuff" So I did one right there for him. He was totally silent.

Pretty fun.

Comment #109 - Posted by: beth at August 29, 2005 12:00 PM

w/u: cfwu x 2 (subbed push-ups and 100xsingle-under jump rope for pull-ups and dips)
wod: 12:20, only mod this time was 1/4 rom for hspu, lunges as per instructions
this was deceptive-harder than it looked
followed up with 300 x single-under jump rope, did not have enough left to attempt double-unders

Comment #113 - Posted by: Jonathan K at August 29, 2005 1:42 PM

11:01 mostly incline pushups due to lame shoulder.

Comment #114 - Posted by: matt halperin at August 29, 2005 1:59 PM

Lunges were slow as I tried to find the ground each time without banging my knee; went 120' each round.
Pushups were on parallettes with feet about 2 feet above level of hands (somewhat weak on these); did 20 each round.

20 min. for 5 rounds

Made some PVC rings last week and tried L-sit in support. No way! Rings are hard. Have to work up to this. I can get about 15 sec. on parallettes.

Gorgeous day in San Francisco. Have a good one!

Comment #115 - Posted by: Rene' at August 29, 2005 4:15 PM

B/w 78.4, b/f 11.7%.

18.46. 4 hspus, the rest were elevated push-ups. Used the treadmill for the walking lunges at speed of 1.2. Worked well. Watch the video about hspus before trying this again.

Comment #116 - Posted by: Matthew Townsend at August 29, 2005 4:28 PM

Time: 12:55.18

Comments: I think I accidentally did double the amount of distance for the W/L at first.

I did my HSPUs with my BACK to the wall, but they still kicked my butt. I think I'm going to work on doing them the other way. I just don't know how I'm going to get up the wall. Any suggestions?

BTW, I love crossfit.

Comment #117 - Posted by: Kris at August 29, 2005 5:45 PM

First WOD in days. Still sick but finally well enough to work-out. HSPU w/ wall for balance, nose to floor. 100+ ft. lunge course. Nose kept plugging up when I was inverted on the HSPU's. That sucked.



Comment #125 - Posted by: Dan Silver at August 30, 2005 2:04 AM

7:44' as Rx'ed.

Did some front squats and deadlifts first, then a few strength holds and clubbell work to finish.

Comment #128 - Posted by: SQ at August 30, 2005 12:32 PM

Sissy style checking in.

Did 4 rounds in 20 mins.

I didn't do the full amount of HSPUs. I only did 3 or 4 per round. That was all I could hack.

Comment #129 - Posted by: nicole at August 30, 2005 12:42 PM

Done on 8/30, early AM, one cuppa, no food:

20 HSPU's, feet hooked on bar in safety rack (first set on my new homemade paralettes, mistake, rest of sets on floor); 50 BWsquats.


Swam 2000 yard main set at lunch as 500's on 8:30, total time (minus warm up and cool down) 37:01 (i.e. last three sets swam as 1500 with no rest).

Fran tonight??? Oy vey.

As recommended against a wall, time 17:10.

Comment #134 - Posted by: DDM at August 31, 2005 10:41 AM

25 min...
lunges as rx'ed 2.5 times down a raquetball court -- 1st 4 sets put legs against wall for hspu, very broken, finished with push-ups when couldn't rep more than 3.
Last set Rick grabbed feet and spotted/helped me complete 15 "real" hspu in 3 sets of 5...
Lunges wrecked my legs- shoulders and lats are blasted.
23 mins:
Lunges as rx'ed- sissy push-ups- becoming clear that his shoulders need surgery or something.

HSPU sets in the last 2 rounds were very broken; slowed me down a lot. Was chugging along quite nicely through the 1st 3 rounds...

Comment #137 - Posted by: Pat at September 1, 2005 6:56 PM

Broken sets on both

Comment #138 - Posted by: RED at September 1, 2005 11:32 PM
