Yes, that is Scott. He has brought his slackline in for folks to use a Brand X.

We miss him horribly. It's a very sad time at Brand X. I keep seeing him in my mind, remembering the times we spoke and exhanged grimaces over the workouts.

Psalm 27

7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me. 8 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek. 9 Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation. 10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.

Damn, 24.......that is tragic....love & thoughts from OZ to all of you.

Is it a good idea to start a little corner of this site dedecated to rememberance of lost CF'ers...may be apt to name it after Scott? Not so much an epitath or memorial, but a celebration of the great stuff in, and around the people that make CrossFit what it is.

Hope this isn't an offensive idea to anyone, it isn't intended that way.

Pete.

I did not know this young man but to lose anyone so young is always sad.To all who knew and loved him I send my prayers, and to all of us cross fitters that did not have the privilege of meeting or knowing this young man I have a feeling we missed something very special.

Comment #27 - Posted by: gale at September 10, 2006 11:07 PM

We miss him a lot. Fortunately for him, but not for us, he was not alone in the accident. His very dear friend and mine, was driving. She was only 18 and we lost her too. Beautiful young people, with hearts so good the world has lost a lot. Love to them both, family and friends. Thank you to everyone for showing their love. Scott was to attend the Cert. in Santa Cruz on Sept. 23-24, 2006. I was to go with him. I still plan to attend. To honor him. I know he would have wanted me to.

Sara T you are very brave.

As you say, probably the best way to honor your friends at this time will be to pass certification. It will be a fitting tribute to two young and energetic lives.

You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Monday rest day per usual.

Thoughts and prayers to the families and friends of Scott and Caryn. On this day of days, most solemn for a new reason as well, I made a special effort to tell my kids and my beloved wife how much I love them. As we remember Scott and Caryn, and those who were lost 5 years ago, may we use this day as an opportunity to embrace those still with us, and give thanks that we are yet here to do so.

It is always a great tragedy when someone who is living life so fully and positively dies suddenly like this. This is a great loss to everyone who knew and loved both of these wonderful young people. Please, everyone, take your driving very seriously.

first of all my sympathies to Scott's family and friends. Words can't take away the hurt but hopefully the knowledge that so many are thinking of him, even those of us who didn't know him, will help.

I'm taking my 12 week break, I've been at Crossfit religiously for 14 weeks but was enjoying it so much it didn't seem that long. But, the last week or so my enthusiasm and motivation has been waning. So, I'll be restarting next Mon. hopefully chomping at the bit and with my shoulder fully healed, no lifting all week. Today I did 30 minutes on the step mill and felt great.

I was between 285 and 295 last January when I first started Crossfit. I have been stable at 275# for awhile (I need to follow the Zone diet more closely). I know I have dropped fat weight and I have gained a great deal of strength. The variety of Xfit fits my personality and while I may not have a great 10K time, I have improved on nearly every benchmark WOD considerably. Thanks for noticing.

Xfit works wonders for the Clydesdales, too.

Comment #85 - Posted by: Jonathan K at September 11, 2006 9:30 AM

On behalf of so many of us at Brand X I would like to thank all of you who have wished us well. Although I visit the site daily and review comments of others, I am a rare contributor to this forum. I consider myself a longtime friend and devotee of Coach Glassman and all the good he has produced via this site. He has brought together a group of extraordinary people who share a common bond. Scott was just such a young man. All the clichés like, “he was a fine young man” truly applied to Scott. He was a humble young soul who recognized his personal weaknesses and strived to overcome them.

On such a solemn day, we remember all of those who have perished tragically. We forget trying to explain why, but instead recount our fortunes at knowing such fine people. Scott was just such a person. So were all of those who were called to duty on this date 5 years ago and those who have perished in the battles since.

The tragedy of today will pass with time; however, the memories will be with all of us who remain. As I write this I think of all of those people I have been fortunate enough to meet through this site. “Murph” always comes to mind. He represents all of those who have passed defending this great land of ours. Thanks to Coach, Lauren and all of the countless others in this program who have brought this community of exceptional people together.

Gods speed to Scott and all of those who have meant so much to all of us….

Sara T. has been a special part of our family, daughter to Mikki and I, friend, confidante and older sister to our boys. We grieve for her. She has lost her two best friends. They were both the kind of people you hope your kids will become.

We are setting up a page for Scott an Caryn with pics, but Sara has posted a couple here.

overhead squats: 1x45,65,75,85,90,95,100,105,110,110. I topped out at 95 the last time we did these, so the 110# is a pr. I found manuvering the bar into the proper position and reracking it almost as challenging as the lift itself. If there ever was a lift that cried out for a coach on the spot screaming at me, this is it. I think I was doing it right, but I'm sure, there's much room for improvement. Got to parallel at the bottom, not lower.

Heading to the gym to do the wod. Not sure about crossfit yet, this is only my 3rd workout. Am I clean and jerking the bar to the overhead squat position? or should I have it racked there and start with it over my head? Hopefully somebody answers this before I get dressed...

And for 9-11 the 343 will always be with me and I am truely sorrowful for Scott's family and friends. RIP

Comment #113 - Posted by: CraigH at September 11, 2006 1:10 PM

CLEAT

Take it off the squat rack as if you are doing a squat. Take a wide grip and push press it into position over your head and slightly behind your ears. After your set, lower the bar behind your head being careful to "catch" the bar across your traps by absorbing the shock with your legs. Rack it like a back squat.

After experimenting with a couple of different manuevers, this seems the safest and easiest to perform.

Last three went down to 65.

Any suggestions on how best to get the bar overhead, (I push pressed the other weights) and more importantly, how to get the bar safely down again without dropping it, (not an option at the gym)?

Scott, be well in the companie of God.
Looking at the documentory about 9/11, tears came out of my eyes. I'm Dutch, never met anyone from of New York, but my heart felt the pain. God's bless, my blessings to all.

About the OH-sq: Sinds I'm still not comfortable with this movement, I saw this as a technique training. Most of the sets where 3 or more reps, untill it felt good.
started with empty oly bar = 20 kg, added 2,5 kg each set, ended with 42,5 kg.
Note to self, do this again in a week or so, just for technique.

Yesterday's WOD "Filthy Fifty" with modifications-
box jump K-12"; N & L-24"
dumbbell swings K-20#; N & L- 12#
no K2E GH sit ups instead
push press K-45#; N & L-25#
Good mornings instead of Back Extensions
wall ball K-25# homemade med ball; N & L- 12# thrusters
Instead of burpees for K & L push ups and squat jumps; N was all over the burpees
100 single unders for K; 60 for N & L
everything else no mods
All sets with 50 reps for K (first time doing all 50) 42:20
Last time that I did this it was 30 reps and in 53:50
N-30 reps each in 20:01; L- 30 reps each in 30:27
We had a slow down when I was doing squat jumps because L started laughing saying tht it looked like I was jumping for joy spreading flowers, we all started laughing so I had to leave the garage to finish. Afterwards we practiced OHS with 25# bar for form. Finally feel comfortable enough with form to add weight next time.
I dedicated this workout to my husband, whom is deployed right now, all of our friends in the FDNY that were there 5 years ago, and all of our friends who have paid dearly for us to be here. It was a heavy day.

It was definitely shakey, but I got all the way down for all reps. Glad I didn't drop it, cuz everyone is leering in the gym. 24 hour fitness definitely isn't designed for this.

So sorry for all who knew Scott and Caryn. What a sad accident.

Not feeling it today, I have to say...just tried to fit in too many things this morning, and didn't do any of them as well as I would have liked. Here's the WOD:

BW 127
55-65-75-85-95-85-85-85F-75-75-75

PR is 100, but didn't have the stability today to go for it. Had to drop the weight down to 85, and then after a crash on the seventh rep, down again. Ugh. Normally I love OHS, but today...not much. On to tomorrow...

My condolences to the Meyer family. May God somehow comfort you as you mourn your loss.

This was my first OHS workout with any noteworthy weight. I was really looking forward to it and was a little disappointed because my balance seemed to give out long before my strength did.

95
115
125
135 (felt quite "threatening")
115
115f (caught on my shoulders when balance got shaky)
115
115 (almost lost balance)
45x10 reps

Didn't want to chance it after that last rep with 115. My area is not set up well for dumping weights.

Not sure why the balance felt so shaky. My stance felt solid. Was it stabilizer muscles? Should I be doing light-weight OHS warm-downs a few times a week or something of that sort to improve balance under load? I would appreciate any suggestions.

Sorry for your loss.

Yesterdays WO but done today. My first crossfit WOD. Been looking at this site for a while and finally realized that this type of WO has everything I have been gravitating towards over the last few years. That said, this WOD wiped me out. had to make some subs due to lack of equipment(and skill).wall ball became thrusters and double unders became 100 regular skips(lack of skill). Finished WO in 55 min. not a great time but for a first time I'm happy.

My thoughts were with you today, Sara.
Katy- my husband is in the Middle East and he loves it when I tell him about the WOD. Makes his day to know I'm working out hard while I wait for him.
Today was tough, warmed up and started OHS with dumbbells. Did 1 at 20lbs., then 3 at 24lbs., failed with 40, five more with 20. Consoled myself by sculling for 4K. Getting on the water got my mind right, shed a few tears over young lives lost, and missing my husband; came back in and got 10 OHS at 45. Still miss him.

1x95 tried the extra rep and got it but form felt terrible-back arched and took a step forward.

"Going Deep" article helped me picture the correct form and I now have a strict basis to measure progress(still feel like a @*&%# for only getting 95 pounds)

Still a bit of a twinge from last week, and my bride back with me after a bit of a break, so we did a mod:

Dan - age 38, bwt 255#

1000M C2 warmup @ 3:47.9 (new PR, believe it or not), then:
Front Squat: 10x45#, 8x75#, 6x105#, 4x135#, 2x165#
OHS: 10x45#, 8x60#, 6x75#, 4x90#, 2x105#
Back Extensions on GHD @ 50 & GHD sit-ups @ 50
Weights were a bit light, but form was pretty good, and no pain!

Tauria

Front Squat: 10x15#, 8x30#, 6x45#, 4x55#, 2x65#
OHS: 10x15#, 8x25#, 6x30#, 4x35#, 2x40#
Back Extensions on GHD @ 50 & GHD Sit-ups @ 50

Took the two of us 50 min. total.
Thanks, CF!

Peace be unto us all.

May Scott rest in peace. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family & friends of Scott, the loss is so much harder on the survivors. Dedicated this workout to Scott. Age 50/BW 240#. Warmup with 5@45, then 1@ 65/75/85/85/100/105/110/115/85/85 and a backoff set of 5@45 trying to get deep as I could. Finished off with "TABATA" situps.

I have trouble getting out of the overhead squat position --when I lower the weight slowly to front or back my left shoulder gives out painfully and either drop it or absorb it on my chest--no fun--hope my shoulder heals soon--feels like a stabalizer muscle i guess--doesn't constantly hurt but just on very specialized movements at a precise point in the movement (wide grip on the way down)

God bless Scott's family and be with them and GroupX. Make your presence known there.

bw: 174 6'0"
32 y.o.

- biked 4 miles to gym (130 bpm, easy ride)
- cfwu with weight assisted pullups and dips. first set with 45 off, last two with 80 off. Dropped to knees for some of last set of pushups.
- only the bar 10x. (no way I'm doing weight until I see good form in that mirror.
- biked 4 miles to gym (130 bpm, easy ride)

How much bend in the back is acceptable for these? Seems like my long legs balance me in such a way that my back arches a little even when I'm directly under the weight.

Sorry, no pictures - gotta get that battery for my camera!

Those were my first overhead pushups.

First time I ever tried these outside the CFWU which is just the broomstick. Not sure I was doing it right either.

55-65-75-85-95-95-65-65-105

Walked out with the bar on my shoulder, did a test squat to get my feet right. Next, did the slight dip then lift, then lowered into position. Did my squat, return bar to my shoulders then walked back to rack.

As I went to a gym for this (my set-up at home is not safe enough for this), I doubt dropping the bar would have been nice.

I know that is not much weight, but I need to work on form and shoulder ROM. On the 9th set, the weight came forward a bit, so I decided to drop the bar... No bumper plates, but luckily at such a light weight, I was able to bring the bar down lightly. For that rep, I had gotten all the way down into a nice deep squat, but as soon as I started to press back up, the weight came forward. I fought it off on on 10th set also. I think my arms were getting tired more than anything else - because squatting 110 lbs shouldn't tire my legs that much.

I'll work on the form in the meantime. I'm scared for today's workout!

SueAnne, I used to have to stop OHS-ing at about 35kg because I couldn't get it up, till I also figured I set the bar high enough so I could have the bar overhead already. That's how I've been doing it. Not sure how else to get it overhead with that amount of weight hehe. I rack the bar in overhead position as well.

Perhaps a spotter might help you feel more safe?

95, 105, 115, 125, 135, 145, 155, 160, failed at 165 x 2- I couldn't reverse push press the weight up. All reps lifted off the floor.

My deepest and sincerest condolences to Scott's Family and Freinds and workout partners at Brand X. Way too many people die in car accidents. I will try to remember to be a more careful and patient driver as I often forget how costly and dangerous a misstep in driving can be.

Excited about getting 55, too scared to try 60 after dumping it last time. Did 15 assisted muscle-ups (9/12 WOD) before and 15 after.

*Does it count as (f) if you lift it over your head, realize you're never going to be able to squat with it and then place it down?

Did this workout a day late, only maxed at 105lbs., but I was able to finally figure out that shoulder flexibility is definitely my problem, can't get the weight far enough back for good form. I'll keep working...Get some.

Comment #256 - Posted by: FireSmac at September 13, 2006 10:10 AM

Row 500m, CFWU x 1

Tim: 185, 185, 205, 205, 215, 215, 225, 225, 235 (PR)

From now on I am going to work on form. I got 235, but just barely, and it was SCAAAAREY being under that much weight for me. I have never even tried maxing out on OHSQs, most I ever did before was 185#, so this was a big step for me.

1 x 65# (tie-PR)
1 x 75# (PR!)
1 x 85# (PR!!)

Notes: Posting here as this WOD is closed out for comments. I'm not sure but I think the 145# is a 20# 1RM PR.

5x75, then 95,100,105,110,115,120(fail) - all of these done power snatch then OHS, couldn't get 120 up. Then I tried push jerk behind the head, got 95, failed at 105, then did 105 off the rack and called it a day. Need to work on getting the weight overhead to begin with, as 115 wasn't hard at all.
BW = 165

First time I tried these, could't get the hang of it. Now, I can get down to ankle to butt. Definite improvment in form and strength.
It also isn't just Overhead Squats...
It's a hang clean to push press to OHS.
It's a total body work out if you do it this way.
You tricky tricky Coach, you.

145 shakey-145 solid. Think it is a new PR- if not definitely much better form than the last time I got it.

Did this wod on 2006 09 13, but forgot to post.

Warm up of 4 sets light weight to work balance, then stayed kind of light, working up to about 140-150(I think, lost notes made during the wod)
