In the video, why does everyone rack their cleans with elbows down? Since everyone is doing it, I assume it is being taught this way?

What does it actually mean, "Use as many sets each minute as needed?"

Comment #8 - Posted by: Igal at November 25, 2006 7:12 PM

#1 Jeff D,
I assume because its on Grace, and speed is the goal. 30 reps, from ground to overhead. Or maybe their flexibility sucks.

#8 Igal
It means that say on minute 8, you can only do a set of four. Come off the bar, rest a little, and then comntinue on to get the 8 reps in the eighth minutes. When you can no longer complete the pullups withn that minute, you are done. So if by the time you get to ten, you have to do ten singles, that is ok. As long as they are done by the end of that tenth minute.

Comment #9 - Posted by: Andy Shirley at November 25, 2006 7:28 PM

10+5 last time
12+6 this time
buh-bye baghdad. see ya'll on the flip-side.

Comment #10 - Posted by: Travis L @ Prosperity at November 25, 2006 8:35 PM

Okay, I just want to get this straight. We start at one min. and just do one pull up. The second minuete we do two... keep going with as many pull-up's as minuetes I've been going for. When I can't get that many pull-ups in that minuete than I'm done (ex. 30th min is 30 pull-ups)

If this is how it goes I have a feeling we could be there for a while. Maybe I'm being naieve though, not sure... it's my first time for this workout. Help me out people, let me know if I'm getting this right.

Comment #11 - Posted by: Speal at November 25, 2006 8:45 PM

Coach,
I've been warming up with the official crossfit warmup before each WOD. Lately, I've added 3 Muscle-ups into each round right after the overhead squats. Any comments on this?
Thanks.

Thanks for the advice to check out the last time we did the workout. Just figured that one out tonight. Good luck tomorrow

Comment #14 - Posted by: Speal at November 25, 2006 9:28 PM

good luck to you to

sry for being an ass.. was reading too many Cynic quotes

Comment #15 - Posted by: Anthony at November 25, 2006 9:38 PM

#11 Speal,
After the tenth minute, you've done 55 pullups.
After 15, 120 pullups.
20: 210
25: 325 pullups
30 minutes: 465. If my math is right.

If you make it through 30 minutes I will buy you a beer.

This workout get real hard, real fast.

How many posts until the "Are we supposed to do dead hangs or kipping pullups?" question? Vegas has the line set at 35. I'm going to say it happens before we get to 30 posts. Anyone else care to speculate?

Comment #21 - Posted by: JR at November 26, 2006 2:57 AM

WOW ... pretty amazing how the accumulation saps you .. was only able to manage until the 11th minute ... on the 12th didnt quite make it .. out of frustration did a 15 min core workout with medicine ball then went for round two... made it to 10 minutes ..great recovery just didnt last as long as i thought I would...better luck next time i guess

Just like last time, got to the 9th round with plenty of gas left in the tank, only to rip callouses off of both hands. It's even more frustrating this time since I know I could have gotten more, and since I ripped them off the last time I've been using a pumice stone to file them down to prevent this from happening. As Pooh said, Oh bother...

After jacking my back up a couple of weeks ago, I thought I was going to go insane laying around and not doing the WOD's. Decided I'd go to the gym and do some PU's no matter what today. I think the this is just what the Dr ordered.... or what she doesn't know I'm doing wont hurt her.

In honor of my Grandfather, US Navy CWO Ret., WW2 veteran, Pearl Harbor survivor. Died in his sleep this am at the age of 99.

Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who biddest the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

O Christ! Whose voice the waters heard
And hushed their raging at Thy Word,
Who walked on the foaming deep,
And calm amidst its rage didst sleep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

Most Holy Spirit! Who didst brood
Upon the chaos dark and rude,
And bid its angry tumult cease,
And give, for wild confusion, peace;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

O Trinity of love and power!
Our family shield in danger’s hour;
From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect us wheresoever we go;
Thus evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.
[The Wreck, by Frederic Edwin Church (1826-1900)]

A full round short of my PR, but happy w/it since it was my first workout in almost 2 weeks. Deadhangs till 10th rd. It felt better on my back. Decided to push it and do 3 slow 800m runs @ a 7.5 minute pace, :01 breaks in between. Feeling ok.

Get some, Go again!

Comment #78 - Posted by: DJ at November 26, 2006 1:08 PM

Done at CrossFit Oakland.

15 rounds even.

Had to stop after round 15 due to inordinately bad tears in both hands. Bummer, too, 'cause there were no breaks through those sets. But when I jumped up for round 16 there was too much blood on the bar (and my hands) to continue.

On the plus side, the pull-ups felt like a breeze compared to the post-workout hand-washing session.

Comment #105 - Posted by: f at November 26, 2006 3:54 PM

With a continuously running clock do one pull-up the first minute, two pull-ups the second minute, three pull-ups the third minute... continuing as long as you are able.

Total = 6 + 6

Done on rings for the first time. All starting and ending at a dead hang. This was a huge difference for me when compared to using a bar and being able to kip. Nice contrast to see where I need to improve.

Did a little COC grip training with T model 5 reps each hand 2 sets.

Compared to 061013 – broke through the nine minute mark, added six pull ups total. I was surprised since I have been off for 11 days for hunting/thanksgiving. Good to be back! Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.

12 rounds, mix of kipping and dead-hang pull-ups. 78 pull-ups total.

Warmed up with 400m sprint (1:15) and 320m sprint (1:01). I was shooting for more sprints, but my legs started really aching in a deep musclar, extremely painful way. Never had anything like that happen to me before, so I stopped.

11 rounds. One more than last time, and this time I did deadhangs until the 7th round, where i switched to kipping, as opposed to last time where I did all kipping.

poor showing compared to last time doing this of course didn't do linda the day before either and i could still feel her today plus a minor interruption kinda threw a kink into the flow.

15 rounds, 16 last time. I did 5x10 L-pullups as part of a self-created workout in avoidance of 3 bars of death so maybe, just maybe they took some zip out of my kip. Good job, all!

4th day of CF workouts. Now I see how pathetic I am - got to 6. I've never tried kipping before so I think I gave up earlier than I needed to. I finished up doing front pulldowns at 120lbs and got up to 12 reps in a minute. Next time should have significant improvements.

Modified warmup
12 rounds plus 7 (on rings). I know I'm capable of more on a bar, but not sure exactly why rings are just that little bit harder.

Just glad to get a workout in.

Comment #149 - Posted by: Dale Saran at November 27, 2006 4:40 AM

At "6 min" thought this was easy and I'd be here all day.

At "7 min" had to break it into 4 sets and didn't finish.

I did palm-out pull-ups, until my desperate and flailing 7th set, where even palm-in didn't save me.

This is only my second day of crossfit, but I'm already impressed with the difficulty of the workouts. I considered myself pretty fit, but feel pretty small after seeing some of the posts about 18+ rounds, etc. I think I can get into this...

Made this WOD up on following Wednesday as prelude to OHS's.

14 rounds plus 13. Last time I was 13 plus 9, so improvement. I broke round 10 7-, round 11 7-4, round 12 7-5, round 13 7-6, round 14 7-7. Last 13 collapsed into small number of reps.

still a little behind but slowly making up workouts...
Did the pullups today AND the last 1/2 of Linda that i didn't finish yesterday

* WOD Pullups 10 rds plus 10 (one shy of my goal). Last time was 9 rds and 6.

** 7-6-5-4-3-2-1 of triplet DL, BP, CL
@ 285, 195, 145. Time: 31:02 (yesterday's was 33+) this workout totally kicked my okole. It was supposed to be one workout lasting maybe 20 minutes. My wife finished hers in like 15 minutes (or less). Mine totalled more than an hour! Crazy...I'm stoked to have finished it though!

7 minutes--couple more seconds and could have made 8.

That was the warmup--continued with this little piece of hell from the Rutman:

Considerable drop from last time (15rnds+). Think I'm just extra sore from BJJ this week but we'll see next time around.
