Been waiting for Candy to come around!

Comment #11 - Posted by: Matt Munson at July 27, 2006 8:40 PM

Well, at least the pullups have become the second exercise in Maggie, unlike in Mary where they're the "easy" exercise (the one you have to do most reps of). If Maggie was Mary times 4, it would be rounds of 60 pullups rather than 40. All academic of course - reducing it to "only" 200 pullups doesn't exactly make it a snap.

Comment #12 - Posted by: John B at July 27, 2006 8:46 PM

Ahmik that was badass!!

Props to Ahmik. That's impressive to say the least.

I'm skipping these ladies today. My legs are ruined from trying to tidy up my front squats and I am riding 150km tomorrow morning. Aah the open road!

Joint complex containing glucosamine, chondroitin & a few other things. Seems to help my old bjj joint injuries. And a multi-vitamin although I often wonder if it's worth it.

Ouch.

20 rounds for Cindy last time.
Candy same total reps

Comment #24 - Posted by: peterh at July 28, 2006 1:00 AM

53 minutes (7, 8, 11, 12, 15) 50# grav assist, even though I can now do a painfully slow pull-up (just one) with 30# assist and so should probably move to 40#... Also my push-ups weren't as low as they could've been. Next time I will do a scaled-down version for better form.

Comment #25 - Posted by: treelizard at July 28, 2006 1:00 AM

Maggie, good lord, who came up with that maddness.
5xMaggie = 59.28 (just shy of 1 hr)

Candy and I went head to toe for 17:20. She tasted like stomach bile.
First round great, second round switched to wide arm push-ups. Third to finish pull-ups were kips. Like stomach bile...that's one nasty ____

Pukie, I want you to meet my new girlfriend, Candy. 14:41 of good times

Comment #34 - Posted by: TimL at July 28, 2006 3:24 AM

I'm just starting out with CF. I KNOW that I won't be able to do Candy as Rx'ed. Should I start with jumping PUs, or do as many reg as possible? And should I start with pushups from the knees ... I'm just guessing that my max for reg pushups is about 25, and I can't imagine doing that 5 times. Thighs are going to hurt, but I should be able to do the squats. Thanks for any advice.

Comment #35 - Posted by: Amy at July 28, 2006 3:35 AM

Extremely hot weather and humidity plus low sleep lately:

BW 180
Terrible time of 45mins for Candy.
All pullups from dead hang, chin to over bar, with no kips.
All pressups with chest touching floor.
All squats to just below parallel with full hip extension.

Least i can say form was good today, next time i'll be shaving that time in half.

Comment #36 - Posted by: Orrin at July 28, 2006 3:54 AM

27:09

I expect to improve by at least 5 minutes next time......the raw, open blisters on my hands from Tuesday's WOD slowed down my pullups considerably. I really had to gut this one out.

Comment #56 - Posted by: Deuce at July 28, 2006 6:22 AM

Candy - 35:29

That sucked - had a personal goal of sub 30 minutes but realized, sometime in the middle of the third round, that this was going to be all about survival. In any case, although my time is nothing to toot about, I am quite proud of myself for powering past Pukie and digging down deep to finish.

And, I left plenty of room for improvement on the next go around.

Comment #67 - Posted by: mikeJ at July 28, 2006 7:13 AM

They start dead hang, but soon degenerate into kipping then jumping then twitching and finally cramping and crying

There's a trade off I think between cadiovascular impact - going 'ugly'and going at it as hard as you can - and strength training - perfect form. I could do it with perfect form, but it would take longer. A week maybe. I feel absolutely shattered at the end of these bodyweight workouts and my 'pullup muscles' are pretty much worked to failure. I find that form on the squats and pushups doesn't degenerate as quickly. I have no idea if this is the right way to do it or not. I think the important thing is to try and improve each time - I have found that the quality of movement is getting better each time these come around. I can crack out 18 or so chin ups now in great form, which seems to make all the steroid boys a little unsettled.

Comment #68 - Posted by: Nick K at July 28, 2006 7:14 AM

@ #14:

Listen to Program #12 and #4, it has good advice:
http://crossfitlive.com/archives.htm

I take Purity Perfect's
HA Joint Formula
Simple Reds
Simple Purples
Perfect Multi SuperGreens
Cal-Advantage Plus
Omega Capsules

and I follow the Zone...the Zone is great. I was hesitant to do so for sometime. However since following the zone my recovery times have shortened significantly. I was very surprised as I thought I was eating healthy before -- and I was, just not in the correct portions.

Comment #69 - Posted by: MCC` at July 28, 2006 7:23 AM

Quick ?. If you miss a weeks or so worth of WODs. Is it recommended to start where you left of or can you just start back up at the latest WOD.

everything broken including me..

Comment #76 - Posted by: dennyy at July 28, 2006 8:11 AM

sweet sweet Candy had the whole show and that's a natural fact. Time estimated as 23:38. I forgot to start stopwatch until after first set of pullups. So, add 30 seconds. Pullups are feeling much stronger. Following with run of 4.18 miles at. Heat index is around 90 outside so I ran at leisurely pace.

Supplements I take are a multi-vitamin and triflex (glucosamine, chondrotin, and MSM) for joint health.

Amy #35 try to do your best with the exercises the hard way, but listen to your body. If you need to do assisted pullups and knee pushups so be it. No one should look down on you if you are doing your best and no exercise is worth injurying yourself. We are all at different fitness levels but we don't judge we support and encourage. You will do great. Jim

Pull-ups broken in rounds 4 & 5 @ 14, 6
Push-ups unbroken
Squats broken around groups of 20.

My best pace for Cindy is 1.5 rounds per minute.
I was about 10% slower with Candy.

I think the squats were the difference since I can go unbroken all thru Cindy but not Candy.

Interested to see and hear everyone's comparisons (and theories)...

Comment #87 - Posted by: Chris Jordan at July 28, 2006 8:50 AM

Candy 12:56

1st set of pullups unbroken (1st time doing 20 in a row)

After that pullups broken and at muscle failure I went right to jumping pull ups.

Pushups mainly unbroken 2 and third set broken, but that was just mental weakness.

Squats broken in second set at 50 and ten.

Sweated like a champ HR finished around 180.

Great workout!

Comment #89 - Posted by: exupNik at July 28, 2006 8:51 AM

Candy is dandy but a gunshot to the head is quicker.
This was brutal. 46:28. Pull-ups a mix of kips, assisted and jumping pull-ups.

Watching Ahmik doing the 100 jumping pull-ups was great inspiration and as I struggled with 5 jumping pullups doing Candy I had even greater appreciation for that awesome feat. Great job Ahmik--I was glad to see it in person.

20 pushups (sets 3-5 broken at about 10)
30 squats

19:08

Near-perfect form, though (including on the part of the pushup I call the "Seal" or "Worm", where you lie on the floor completely straight, chin to ground, gasping without normal workout people wondering whether to snicker or call an ambulance)

CAndy 29:56.8

Pull-ups with assist
Push-ups to failure and then modified
squats broken

I truly find it hard to believe that anyone is posting times in the 12-13 minute range.
with 600 reps that would be about 1 rep every 1.33 seconds not counting transition time and rest time if broken sets.

I call bull crap!!!

Comment #101 - Posted by: anthony at July 28, 2006 9:50 AM

Amik, you rock!

Garrett, #59, you suck. No, really. :)

I did what I call "Penny Candy" (vice Paolo's Candy Ass, which might be more appropriate):

“Penny Candy”
10 Jumping Pull-ups
20 Bent-Knee Pushups
30 Squats
16:34

I never thought I was diabetic, but this candy almost made me sick! :)

Rock on, Amik!!

51 y/o, 152lbs.

Candy: 31:11

BUT did all PUs with 40lb. Gravitron assist. Sharp pain in my outside left lat for the past week so there was no way I was going to get 100 PUs unassisted. The masochist in me looks forward to the next time when I can try it straight up.
The big news is the mental toughness it took to complete this. Going in I told myself that I would only do 3 rounds. Once in, I couldn't let myself down by not finishing the WOD. Thanks Crossfit.

Comment #104 - Posted by: Charles at July 28, 2006 9:54 AM

What would be the sub for pullups without having to use a machine. I have nothing at my house except for a jump rope and some kettlebells.

Comment #105 - Posted by: J at July 28, 2006 9:55 AM

I missed my 4:30 AM workout this morning as I was just too exhausted from running yesterday lol. This will be my first official WOD! I am going to try to do Candy! I know I can hit the squats and the pushups with no troubles. The pullups are gonna have to be jumping though. I just haven't built the strength to get my big butt off the ground and to the bar otherwise. You guys are absolutely amazing doing 20+ pullups unassisted and unbroken. I bow to you guys! Hopefully I will put up a good time though! Wish me luck! Should I post my BW and age along with my time?

Comment #106 - Posted by: Robert at July 28, 2006 10:02 AM

As rx'd.

18:52.

Same as with OPT...just didn't have it today.

Pullups were 20; 15,5; 10,5,5; 10,5,5; 8,5,5,2
Pushups were 40; 40; 20,20; 20,10,10; 15,10,5,5,5
Squats all unbroken.

I want to watch folks in the 12:00 minute range for Candy...that would be freaking impressive and hugely motivating!!!

And 12:00 for Maggie? Hmmm...I find it inconceivable that you can move your body fast enough on one-legged squats & hand-stand pushups to do 150 reps (each leg), 200 pullups, and 100 HSPU, averaging less than 1.5 seconds per rep (including transitions).

Charles (105), There really isn't a sub for pullups, but there are 3 options. Assuming you do the crossfit warmup, you will be doing pullups everyday, so you might want to invest in some sort of bar.

1. Go to a local park and find something to do pullups on (tree branch, a shorter swing set, etc.)
2. Find a railing or banister, lie underneath it and pull yourself toward it.
3. Find the heaviest thing in your house that you can lift. Bend over, grab it, and pull it toward your chest. Lower and repeat.

Note that 2 and 3 are not really subs, just something to work your lats until you can get a pullup bar. The kind that mount over a doorframe can be had for around $50 or less.

Oh yeah, and my time includes listening to an expert on pullups telling me I was going to hurt my shoulder "jerking like that", i.e., doing kipping pullups. He seemed a little hurt when I didn't change over to his method, no-kip with about 1/2 range of motion.

I'm not going to make a sugar-based joke here. That was just plain bad. My legs were more smoked than I though from my 5K yesterday. Surprisingly, pullups are starting to become the exercise that I don't "dread" anymore. Now it's squats!!

Good Lord after being on the road for 400 miles today, this one is gonna hurt tonight.

Question, is it better to do regular pullups and break up the sets or do weighted pullups to get the 20 reps unbroken? I want to stick with unassisted even though I can't get to 20 reps (for sure not for 5 rounds), is that okay, as I feel it'll make them easier in the long run. Thanks yall

Supplements: I like to keep all kinds of things around that I can cook with (goji berries, herbal vinegars, reishi mushroom, seaweed, nettles, Ayurvedic tonic jams, ginger, cayenne), make into tea (too many to list) or throw in a smoothie (cod liver oil, protein powder, bee pollen, spirulina). I make all kinds of zoom balls and energy balls, keep lots of nervines around (tea, tincture, you name it) as well as B complex supplements (liquid or sublingual) for stress, and I always have trace minerals around, as well as electrolyte drinks, and emergen-C.

On a regular day I only use maybe one to three of the above.

When I was really deficient (anemic, etc.) I took the best multivitamin I could find (Oregon Health Multi-GuarD with CoQ10) and Floradix Liquid Iron and Herbs until I got back on track.

Comment #147 - Posted by: Jimmy at July 28, 2006 12:37 PM

# 138 - it's better to do regular pullups. after you can no longer manager 1 pullups, then begin jumping pullups.

you might consider breaking the sets into mini sets. eg. 4 sets of 5 pullups. of course, try to limit the time of your breaks.

if your first round takes longer than ~7 minutes, then you might consider scaling down the reps in the remaining rounds.

I seriously suck at anything that involves high-rep push-ups...Seriously, I reach failure like a baby after 15 reps, it's ridiculous! Yesterday I did a workout from the archives that called for 21-15-9 Hang-Squat-Clean, 50lb dumbells, and Handstand Pushups, that didn't help matters at all.

Picked Candy and got totally owned at 27:00 and change. I'm going to sulk in the corner now.

"Candy"
17:14 as rx'd

Comparing it to my last Cindy WOD (23 rounds) I am able to observe that I am outputting the same amount of power in a shorter amount of time.

Cindy: 23 rds = 20:00/
Total Pullups:115
Total Pushups:230
Total Squats:345

Candy: 17:14
Total PUs:100
Total Pushups:200
Total Squats:300

Practically the same amount of effort in less time. I think that I can sprint to completion something like Candy where I have a fixed ending as opposed to something like a 20:00 Max Rep effort that is more open ended. Probably for the same reasons I/Most Ppl can run faster and longer on treadmills (fixed track) vs the open road (open ended amount/speed/pwer/etc).

Supplements

You know how when you cut into an apple it starts to turn brown?This is called oxidation.
Without making this a science class,the same thing is happening on a cellular level when you train.The harder and more frequently you train the more oxidation is taking place,so all crossfitters/athletes should be taking a high antioxidant multi-vitamin on top of proper nutrition.Ibuprofen,Tylenol,Aspirin all impede protien synthesis,if you just tough it out you will benefit more from your workout physically and mentally.

Will be on the road and doing lots of cals (likely) next week (add to that my hands are still raw from pullups last go-round), so did Coach Rutherford's "Fitness conduit" workout instead:
21-15-9 rounds of db thrusters (35% weight/40 lbs); ball slams (20 lb ball); pullups (kipping).
15:15 - all sets broken (except last series of ball slams) - did the "lie on ground and recover" dance afterwards.

Comment #166 - Posted by: Patrick at July 28, 2006 1:47 PM

Candy, 37 minutes, tough one today. I did the pull-ups in sets, 4 of 5 reps for each of the 5 rounds (does that make sense?!?!?). Complete set of pushups and complete of squats.

Could have pushed myself for the pullups, I didn't feel that bad afterward. Maybe next time shoot for 10 reps at a time?

Comment #174 - Posted by: gaucoin at July 28, 2006 2:11 PM

now that my head has cleared (of Candy), I realize that my power output was less than my last Cindy.

Cindy: 18 rounds in 20 minutes: 540 reps (540/20=27)
Candy: 20 rounds in 31 minutes: 600 reps (600/31=19)


my Candy time should have been around 22 minutes.

Now, had I calculated a targeted time to achieve the same power output, I wonder if that would have effected my actual time?

I will have to try this one again. But not tomorrow!

Comment #182 - Posted by: TK at July 28, 2006 2:39 PM

J.Messano I would not compare my cindy times to candy times. From my experience I was breathin way heavier doing candy than doin cindy. Besides candy has way more reps at 1 time. To me there is no comparison. Sure they have the same movements but rds 3-4-5 felt like the late rds in cindy and for a longer period of time. I did candy in 29 something next time I expect 28 or 27..

Only four rounds of Candy, but did it with ten pounds in my vest, @ 31:02. My right shoulder was bothering me a bit, so I decided to stop. I figured that this is the first out of three days and I didn't want to be going into the next two days having to back down because of it.

Comment #186 - Posted by: Neil at July 28, 2006 3:03 PM

John Messano #175, but didn't your time increase the more rounds you did? For me, I did:

53 pullups, 100 push-ups, 150 squats for Cindy and (20 min) 303/20 (15.15)
100 pullups, 200 Push-ups, 300 squats for Candy (53 min) 600/53 (11.32)

But since I timed my rounds I know that I got the first 2.5 candies done in approx 20 minutes, and the last half of the WOD was approx 33 (give or take thirty seconds). I'd venture a guess that your last sixty reps lowered down the average.

My God, I'm doing math voluntarily. The things we do for Crossfit. ;)

"Candy" as rx'ed in 17:30. This doesn't square with my Cindy score, last time 27 rounds in 20 min. The fatigue of the double Cindy rounds here was noticeable, particularly with the push ups where i had to break at 20 then on the 10's and so forth. Pullups kipped and after the first round, I took a 10sec break at 10, squats broken at 30. I think if Candy was 10 rounds of Cindy rounds I would have gone sub 10, but who can say for sure. Great workout. BW: 176, YOA: 57 Thanks, Coach!

Comment #198 - Posted by: john wopat at July 28, 2006 3:42 PM

but in terms of power output (Coach? anyone?), Candy was far more challenging for most of us.

assuming the same total number of reps completed (600 (5 rounds of Candy or 20 rounds of Cindy), Candy took longer, it felt harder, and the power output was significantly less.

was it muscle endurance that crushed me?

and certainly, I've had more dates with Cindy. i know that girl, as dennyy mentioned. i know i'll be suffering when I pass round 14 or 15. so I'm ready to accept the discomfort.

Seriously, this is demoralizing. This was my 5th WOD, and and I'm ashamed I ever called myself in shape or an athlete, and this is coming from a former collegiate defensive back. I can't wait to see how I've progressed weeks from now.

Candy, 35:34. NOT the workout to do after coming off an injury recovery. I guess waiting more than 30 minutes after lunch would have helped too. Mac & Cheese tastes bad the second time around.

60, bwt 283. Years ago, I dated a girl named Candy, but she didn't cause nearly this much pain. Only 2 1/2 rounds to failure. All sets broken except the first set of 40 pushups

PU- 2 rounds of 20+10. Positron w/ 70 lb offset for first two rounds, switched to 100 off for third round, but there wasn't much strength left. All with chin over bar.

Pushups-2 rounds of 40 + 20. Broken sets, good form.

Squats- 2 rounds of 60+ 30. Broken sets, butt to heels.

Tomorrow's gonna suck!

Comment #324 - Posted by: John B at July 30, 2006 11:33 PM

I was really pressed for time, so I did 3 rounds of Candy: 22:00 (approx).

It took me about 1 1/2 hours to recover and actually feel normal...I think this made me feel as bad as I could feel and it took every ounce of will to beat Pukie back into submission......................PAINFUL

I had to break up the last 2 rounds of pull-ups into quick sets of 10 then 5 and 5 though. But overall I was surprised I did it in under 15 min. I went in thinking it would be closer to 20 or so.

I typically can get 16 rounds of Cindy in 20 minutes. Extrapolating, Candy should have been done in 25 minutes. So why the difference? My theory: 1) The power output (work over time) can not be sustained (at least by me) at "Cindy" levels, for one given exercise, for a "Candy" number of reps -- even round one was 25% slower than a typical Cindy workout pace; 2) based on my degraded performance for each round, the fatigue factor grows each round. What is the physiology driving this? Somebody else needs to answer this.
