Comment #3 - Posted by: Matt Munson at March 21, 2007 7:07 PM

sorry for posting this here but i posted it on the message board and didn't get a response.

i have a roman chair and thought i was doing back extensions but after seeing this video

http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/CrossFit_GHD.wmv

i realize i'm actualy doing hip AND back extensions. SOOOOO.... should i continue to do hip/back extensions or should i isolate them and do some of each?
when we do the filthy fifties and they ask for back extensions [i feel like an idiot typing this] i guess i should do back extensions "duh"

i'm still confused...

i was gonna post it at the next filthy fifties but who knows when that will be...

WOW ! That's amazing

Comment #5 - Posted by: CTM at March 21, 2007 7:07 PM

Andy is the type of guy who is ready to 'bring it' at a moments notice...the 76 OHS performance was simply amazing.

Strong work Andy.

Holy Sh_ T Andy,that was damn impressive.
Coach, thanks for posting.

Comment #7 - Posted by: Jay at March 21, 2007 7:11 PM

Andy, it would probably be tough for me to even hold 95 lbs over my head that long. Needless to say, very impressive.

Comment #8 - Posted by: Tom at March 21, 2007 7:20 PM

#7 Steve,
Could you post a link with a video of you showing correct form. It would help those of us starting out to avoid making mistakes and having to re-learn proper technique later.
thanks,
ratt

Comment #9 - Posted by: water-ratt at March 21, 2007 7:23 PM

To celebrate receiving my new weightlifting shoes last night I decided to try a few OHS's with a 15 lb bar. If I hadn't done that I would not have a proper appreciation for what a feat 75 reps @95 lbs is!! Simply amazing!!

Comment #10 - Posted by: Chris Lampe at March 21, 2007 7:27 PM

#7 Steve,
Andy has a lot of forward lean, freaky shoulder flexability and some loose clothes on...look again with your pause button.
The crease of his hips dip below the top of his knee...legit. Even better, look at his hamstrings bouncing off his calves!

#9 CHeck out any video of Nicole OHSquatting!

Comment #11 - Posted by: Jerry Hill at March 21, 2007 7:30 PM

How much weight are we supposed to do for the PUSH PRESS's. And that means 7 sets of 3? do we break in between? How do you go at doing this WOD.

Comment #12 - Posted by: Rob at March 21, 2007 7:36 PM

Andy, that was awesome. Did OHS's make you that tall? haha.

Comment #13 - Posted by: Dutch at March 21, 2007 7:37 PM

Andy,

That was darn impressive. I remember now meeting you in a grocery store in Santa Cruz.

You're a tough dude!!

Comment #14 - Posted by: Barry Cooper at March 21, 2007 7:40 PM

Andy,
Great work. Nice form with maintained efforts under duress. The man in the Arena puts his efforts for others to see. Thank you for the lesson.

Comment #15 - Posted by: tj at March 21, 2007 7:59 PM

Andy is one tuff cat!!! Crossfit is DANGEROUS!!!

I'm from Charlotte also and had the priviledge and pleasure to count out every rep for him this weekend...

Screw the "perfect" argument...maybe not quality squats for competition...but undoubtedly a fool proof plan defining intensity!!


Who freakin smiles like that after that set!?!?!?!

Thanks for the great video Tony...can't wait to see more from that awesome certification seminar!!!

Comment #16 - Posted by: jake squires at March 21, 2007 8:02 PM

Julie,
You are wrong. They were fine. Look more closely. Do you judge meets live or on the Internet?

Steve,
He had no trouble getting out of the hole, and there'd be no point in going below parallel given the assignment.

Comment #17 - Posted by: Coach at March 21, 2007 8:03 PM

What is with all the grumpy trolls the past few days? Someone call Orkin.

Thanks so much Coach,,,,glad you responded...Thank you so much for last weekend also...that Seminar was Fantastic.

"There'd be no point in going below parallel given the assignment"

Could you expand on this please, Greg?

Comment #20 - Posted by: russ greene at March 21, 2007 8:20 PM

I have been lurking these comments for a long time and I am disturbed by what has taken place recently. Some folks seem to post here only to critique and criticize. Example from today: those squats are good, they are past 90 and that feat is awesome. If you think I am wrong then watch the video again because you missed it. They are better than "decent" and they are definately "quality". Additionally, it is not the squat that is hard there - it is the balance and the overhead hold.

Today is not the only day and I am not intentionally singling out todays posts. Yesterday you guys argued about the sub for an exercise between a rational and irrational sub and some folks posted their reasoning citing "who wants it more" as rationale. Following that logic, next time the rowing machine is full and I can't do my 500m I'll just run two marathons and swim the english channel three rounds for time (I want it really bad).

I know this is a comments board and all are welcome but it did not used to be like this. Thanks to Coach for continuing to post great workouts for free. They are the only thing keeping me coming back since the dissappearance of the the helpful and healthy conversation that used to occur here.

On a brighter note, I live in central NY and the only people I know who Crossfit are people I told about it (I am sure there are more I just dont know them). Anyway we have got about 8-10 people now and it is great. Thanks again. Back to lurking...

Comment #21 - Posted by: Craig at March 21, 2007 8:23 PM

Craig and friends,

See my comment number 88 from last Rest Day. There's a new standard for commenting. It's going to be harder to comment and tougher yet to troll. I'm willing to eliminate 2/3's of the posts to assure eradication of trolls and keep the dialog constructive.

Thank you for your support.

Comment #22 - Posted by: Coach at March 21, 2007 8:31 PM

Oh Craig, well said my man, it's been brutal lately. It's like trolling season or something.

My new defense is to ignore those posts, as it's pretty obvious what they are doing, and focus on the post from the familiar Crossfitter. The only problem with us making our disappointment vocal is so many people use the, "It's a free country" rationale so they feel they can blurt out anything they want. That may be the case, but it doesn't make this place overly positive when every day there's criticism and nit-picking taking place.

Keep working hard and keep posting, the cream always rises to the top...

Comment #23 - Posted by: gaucoin at March 21, 2007 8:38 PM

12 min, had to sub 3 pullups and 3 dips for each muscle up

Comment #24 - Posted by: nick g at March 21, 2007 8:39 PM

Both yesterday's and today's videos were awesome.

I also liked the version of the music on today's.

Thanks Coach and all, for the really good media.

p.s becoming the best I can be

Comment #30 - Posted by: kev at March 21, 2007 9:18 PM

I'm kind of a lurker myself (ala Craig #20), but I just wanted to stick my head in and briefly add my voice to those of the level-headed and decent individuals around here regarding the steady increase in trolling and all around nastiness here in the comments section.

Coach, for what it's worth, I wholeheartedly agree with your assessment and the steps you plan on taking to curb abuses.

While I'm at it, I'd also like very much to thank you for the creation and maintenance of both the Crossfit system and this community. I can guarantee that a day will come when CrossFit saves my life, so I'll just go ahead and thank you in advance. Please, keep up the incredible work.

- Patrick

Comment #31 - Posted by: Patrick at March 21, 2007 9:45 PM

WOW!! Andy is fit as f**k for sure!!!

Comment #32 - Posted by: freddy c. at March 21, 2007 9:52 PM

Unbelievable video. I can't imagine the mental toughness it takes to push through 75 of those bad boys. And Coach, thanks for working so hard to maintain the integrity of this community. Your efforts don't go unnoticed.

Comment #33 - Posted by: Bradford Green at March 21, 2007 9:56 PM

Hey all, I would like to personally apologize as I was probably the person that inflamed the blog yesterday. I was just sitting her imagining a new guy dying on the pullups and dip bars for an excessive amount of time for a metcon workout because another told him to do the 1 minute for each sub and throw out the more conventional sub.

I can understand how as a first post it would have seemed quite abrasive, I do love this site and have been an avid crossfitter now for 3 months, and look forward to many more.

I also can not thank Coach enough for what he has put out here for us all. As a personal trainer for 3 years now I became disheartened with what I was teaching my clients and after having converted myself to the far more logical crossfit mentality am looking forward to getting certified and taking it out to other people.

take care all, and happy crossfitting

#20 Craig I'm in central NY as well, more specifically - Tom #25, I'm at Colgate too. Some of the other OCS/HFD guys do xfit from time to time. I'm rehabbing my shoulder and I'm not 100% yet but even so I know for a fact we could give you some moto, if only you'd join the Semper Fi Society...

WOD tomorrow afternoon. Impressive video

Comment #35 - Posted by: David G. at March 21, 2007 10:12 PM

that's awesome. totally.

has andy ever tried to do max reps on bodyweight OHS?

Comment #36 - Posted by: David Aguasca at March 21, 2007 10:15 PM

I think the big question should be : When are Andy and Nicole going to duel it out for the OH Squat title? Awesome work Andy!

On a side note: I was able to perform 7 consecutive muscle-ups for the first time ever yesterday! My personal best before that was 3 and I performed my first ever at May's Cert. last year. Something clicked after watching the "Nasty Boy's" video. Thanks guys!

Comment #37 - Posted by: Team Hybrid at March 21, 2007 10:18 PM

WOW. That was awesome! How long did it take to get to that level? Any tips for building up the OHS?

Comment #38 - Posted by: Ben Weger at March 21, 2007 10:24 PM

I just finished a work out at Crossfit Vancouver and we were working on our OHS going up to a max. I have to say I am inspired to go back and give it another try after watching Andy's feat. Excellent work! I have been reading the site for about 6 months now, but only decided to post today. Thanks Coach for sorting out the site, we lurkers appreciate it!
I will see some of you in June at the cert here in Van - Cheers, Rhino.

Comment #39 - Posted by: Rhino at March 21, 2007 10:26 PM

Oh yes, I like what the Coach is putting down... It's just too bad they have to spend their time keepin' out the riff-raff but if that's what it takes to keep the community here positive and connected I'm all for it. Nice work!

Comment #40 - Posted by: gaucoin at March 21, 2007 10:59 PM

Is Andy human? Un-freakin-believable! The last two movies have totally amped me up...I'm gonna start adding a bit of weight to my CFWU OHS's and GTG with some daily MU work as well.

I'm sure the truedog CFers can interpret my heavy acronyms. Ignore the trolls...less for them to feed on.

But thanks again Coach for caring enough to make this site even better. CrossFit is making a difference for so many of us.

Comment #41 - Posted by: wilson at March 22, 2007 1:08 AM

Well said Coach.

Comment #42 - Posted by: Jay at March 22, 2007 1:52 AM

Andy, very impressive, an inspiration for all of us to go for it.
today's WOD:
warming up: samson, skill-play at double-unders, L-sit, paralettes.
push-press: 40-50-60-70-70-72,5-72,5 kg
tried to do something more, but after the ballistic workout of yesterday, my elbow-joint could not take anything else but the presses.
Have fun, Johan

Comment #43 - Posted by: Johan Nederhof/Rotterdam at March 22, 2007 3:35 AM

Andy - amazing my brother!!! You motivated me all weekend, and continue to do so. I look forward to attending more seminars with you. You are a beast!

Comment #44 - Posted by: JeffT at March 22, 2007 3:36 AM

Just a note about the date today is March 22 it must be the teacher side of me that notices these things

Comment #45 - Posted by: Brent Rowney at March 22, 2007 4:02 AM

Very impressive Andy! Holding that weight overhead for 3+ minutes is real tough, much less overhead squatting with it.

8 minute GS set: 120 reps, 60L/60R. Chalk on fingers and thumb only, no chalk on bell. No hand cramps or deadhangs; easy set with focus on pacing and technique.

7x3/3 52# kb one arm jerks with 2 second overhead lockout - this is the first time in close to a year that I've been able to hold the 24k in the rack position without pain. Those acupunture treatments seem to work.

3x10/10 36# kb one arm jerks with 2 second overhead lockout.

Hey guys,

I've been crossfitting since September now...and there's no doubt I'm addicted. The anticpation for the WOD's is very motivating...and when I leave the gym...I can't wait to find out what the next day will bring.

This is an amazing resource...with the WOD's, exercises, videos, journal, instructions, teaching, and a great community of likeminded people with a common goal.

Coach and many others here...certainly know their stuff. That being said...people can certainly do the WOD's any way they wish. If I had done a 4th round of Nasty girls...that would have been fine...likewise with 2 rounds...or even 10. Its all up to the individual...thats the beauty of this...scale it to your own needs. Don't belittle others if they can't do what you can do...and don't begrudge others if they can do more.

As well...if people's form is not as good as yours...so what. I agree with pointing it out...but point it out to improve the community...not to take away from someone.

Sorry guys...another post you had to read with nothing to learn from...but felt like I had to say it. And as everyone keeps pointing out...this is a free resource and if you don't like it...don't use it.

And anyway you cut it...76 overhead squats is impressive.

Blown away that he did 76 straight reps w/o having to rack it-amazing! Like a few have said, not sure that I could just hold the weight overhead for that long. Yet another incredible feat compliments of CrossFit. One day..One day

Thanks Coach

Stand with the bar on your shoulders in front, (i.e. the finish of a clean). Dip and drive into a front shoulder press. Repeat.

Comment #61 - Posted by: Jeff at March 22, 2007 5:15 AM

If anyone needs some instruction on the push press check out the video from Friday, 9 March 07. Should answer any questions on how to do it.

Comment #62 - Posted by: Nick at Langley at March 22, 2007 5:16 AM

Andy,that has to be the most impressive feat I have ever seen on crossfit !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was planning to come to Charlotte for some coaching--now I am afraid to.( just kidding )

Coach,thanks for you efforts to eliminate the nonsense in the posts.

Comment #63 - Posted by: Dan at March 22, 2007 5:33 AM

Truly awe-inspiring. I gather some troll posted earlier that they were not legit. Ironic - 'cuz I was thiking as I watched it "no one can say those aren't legit" and, of course, someone does. It's too bad that I even thought that - it wasn't always so. Glad that Coach is going to sort the wheat from the chaff - looks like Lynne et al will be busy.

Andy - Are you a Marine? If so, Semper Gummby! Unbelievable shoulder flexibility.

But what shouldn't be lost is the leg strength (and tenacity) necessary for 76 reps of 95lb OHS. That's just beastly.

Comment #64 - Posted by: Dale Saran at March 22, 2007 5:40 AM

Maybe I should have said "what we shouldn't lose sight of is the leg strength...." Damn, tired today.

Comment #65 - Posted by: Dale Saran at March 22, 2007 5:41 AM

I have the pleasure of working with Andy since his first exposure to CrossFit. He came in for a visit a little over a year ago. He was gung ho, an avid cyclist and willing to learn. At the time he couldn't do but a couple of pull-ups, no rope climbs and couldn't get his hips anywhere close to parallel.

Well the video shows the progress he has made. The crease does break parallel. We checked the dept before he started squatting knowing that folks here would put it under the microscope. The guy is quickly becoming a stud in the CF world. Give him another year of training and his times will be comprable to anyone's here.

Oh and as for his pull ups. After ripping every callas off his hands at the 1st cert he has attended he can now kip with the best of them.

so the recomendation is to start at a weight for a set and go up or down depending on how it feels? And to reach the weight which is the most you can do while still doing it correctly and with all the reps?

This is about my third week of doing the CrossFit workouts after about 18 years of lifting weights based on body building movements. All I have to say is that dude in the video is kickin' it!

125
130 - this and the set before were probably the best form
135
140 - 2 - I dropped the bar on the way up - not real popular in the gym but it was early and relatively empty.

This is a new execrise for me so I thought I was starting light to get the form. I guess not. I am aiming for 175 next time this workout comes up.

Comment #72 - Posted by: Robert at March 22, 2007 6:08 AM

Andy Hendel = Monster.

Man, that video got me amped. If I didn't have some strained intercostal muscles (sp?), I'd run to the gym right now and go do 75 95Lb. overhead squats. It might take me 1/2 an hour, but I'd do them. =)

Impressive!! I guess my only constructive criticism would be -- it's not the greatest form. This guy is tight as heck. Leans forward way too much when squatting down.

Question: In the last 2 monthes I have lost about 14 lbs aprox 7% of my total body weight. I have been hitting the X-fit alot harder along with adding more outside activity to my general life, but I am concerned that this weight loss may be too much and I will start to lose strength. Any insights or opinions? Thanks in advance.

Andy - Awe-inspiring work...thank you for allowing it to be taped.

When I first saw these, I wondered if it was good form given your forward lean...then I watched your head/ear...straight up, straight down. Unlike my form, which looks like my head is on an elliptical machine. :D

Coach - good for you to 'thin' the ranks of trolls. While spirited debate using logic and fact is usually a good thing, there are some people who only seem to want to complain.

Comment #97 - Posted by: TimW at March 22, 2007 8:51 AM

Andy, that is awesome! I am just learning the movement and gaining shoulder flexibility, and seeing the amount of work completed in that one task by you is inspiring. I can't wait to get out of work to hit it. Thanks!

Comment #98 - Posted by: James Humphrey at March 22, 2007 8:52 AM

Question on Pull-ups:

I started CF back in Dec. and it has been an improvement in every imagineable way to what I have done in the past. However, my pull-ups have stagnated. Last summer I was doing weighted PU's and could get 24 unweighted in a go. Now I top out at 18 on a good day. Granted I can hop up 10 seconds later and crank out 15 more, but my single shot max is usually between 14 and 16. What is going on?

Comment #99 - Posted by: Josh N at March 22, 2007 8:53 AM

#98 Josh N

Just thinking, how long did it take you to pull 24 in a row in seconds on the bar?
How many seconds on the bar for 18 now?
I was wondering if maybe you did them faster before and spending more time on the bar now.
Maybe you need to practice just hanging on longer to improve grip.

I've been alternating every other workout weighted pullups with 2x4, 3x3 or 4x2 and then two days later max effort unweighted and have improved from 9 on Dec 31 to 17 just 3 days ago; hoping for 20 on y 41st b-day on the 25th.
Also to improve grip, besides DL, I've been doing hanging k2e and t2b after exhausting the pullups.

I just want to say thanks to the Crossfit community for all your positive comments. I must say my ego is little inflated today. I have been a football coach at all levels and worked very close with many strength and conditioning programs. Crossfit is by far superior to anything I have ever been apart off, hats off to Greg and everyone that contributes their expertise. Crossfit will be apart of me for the rest of my life. The best part of last weekend was not the 76 overhead squats, but my first muscle-up!

Comment #106 - Posted by: andy @ Crossfit Charlotte at March 22, 2007 9:27 AM

Andy,

Just watched the video. I was amazed at how you were able to hold the weight up after 60 reps. The bar kept creeping back and yet you still held it, my shoulders hurt watching you. Impressive display of technique and tenacity.

Congrats on the first Muscle up.

Coach,

Eggs, meat, greens, OJ for breakfast. -Everyday
Turkey, tomato, lettuce, olive oil, wrap.
Peanut butter or almonds and celery of an apple.
Whatever the wife cooks usually lots of animals and veggies and very little grains.

I have been concerned that I am not eating enough.

Thanks for the response, Coach.

Comment #118 - Posted by: Scott Borre at March 22, 2007 10:00 AM

I decided to work on less assistance on pull-ups and dips.
Did the CFWU x 4 incorporating in 800 meter run every round. (my neck is very sore....I think I need a chiropractor)
Can do 10 dips every round unassisted...the other five at 10 to 15#
When I was first introduced to CF by my husband, he showed me the "Nasty Girls" video and I laughed and said, "No way, in a million years, I could never do that!
I still can't do all of the WODs as rx, but I have made such great progress, and I am so proud of my accomplishments.
The positive posts are are a great incentive for me. I love to see the incredible times and loads because it pushes me to reach my full potential.
Thanks to my husband, Coach, Kelly, OPT, AFT, gaucoin (you are so funny) Kate, Speal, Lynne, bingo, and all of the rest of you who are on this site for all of the right reasons.

first time doing push press. i started to stagger around a bit on the third set of 89s so i took it back down. small gym, no barbell platform, figured if i dropped the bar and dented the parquet floors i might be banned... also took me a while to find the best grip width. felt like i was getting the hang of the form though.

still had energy after the workout to go climb 6 or 7 routes at the climbing gym! since starting to do the WOD regularly a few weeks ago i have a strange feeling of being totally sore all over but energized at the same time!

hey everyone, I'm a CF newbie...been doing CF for about a week now and I must say I'm very impressed and love every minute of it. My background in fitness is pretty extensive. I played competitive sports my entire life, and pursued bodybuilding for about 4 years. For the last two years I've been serving in Canada's fine army which began to pull me further away from bodybuilding and more oriented to overall fitness. For the last 12 weeks or so I've been on a special force program which was designed by an ex-navy seal. It was a very in depth program to say the least, but pushed me to my limits nevertheless. The only thing that I really didn't enjoy is that I was working out pretty much ALL DAY!! It got boring and tedious, so a friend of mine (also in special forces) introduced me to crossfit. And let me tell you guys... SO WORTH IT, I'm sore all around. Thanks to everyone at CF.

3x85,105,115,120,130,135,135(pr). I topped out at 125# last time so today's effort was a good thing. I celebrated by doing 4x400 on the treadmill @ 1% w/ 2 minutes rest in 1:33, 1:35, 1:35, 1;32 to get that particular monkey off my back. Last week's 400's had me feeling like I'd whiffed in a slow pitch softball game. Now for 75 overhead squats w/95#...I think not. That was an amazing video. Thanks, Coach! BW:170, Y/A:58

Is lifting bar from rack to begin push press acceptable? I'm sure a clean from the floor would be preferrable but limits the amount I can push by about 30-40 lbs.

I probably started too high.
The last set actually felt easy until the bar hit my chin on the final rep. Tried to redo the final rep, but I missed it with the bar too far forward of my face. Decided to call it a day.

Comment #201 - Posted by: Allen at March 22, 2007 3:34 PM

Day behind. "Nasty Girls", details posted there, 22:04. Tweaked L shoulder on 27th clean; hope it doesn't affect the push press tomorrow.

Andy: truly awestruck watching that video. Even more impressive, two teenage sons equally awestruck! I'm pretty sure I can't even hold up the OLY bar for that long, never mind do the OHS!

Valerie S. : you're welcome, for whatever occasional smiles I may provoke.

Coach, thanks.

Almost forgot (sorry about all the posts in a row): this old article by JV Askem helped to remind me about the difference between power jerks and push presses (don't laugh, it feels subtle to me). It is also an excellent foundational workout for just about anyone.

Hope this is useful to some people who are starting out, too.

Speaking of videos...after watching the Nasty Girls video I realized I was trying to do the M/U's all wrong. I just went out to my garage and busted out two on the rings. Somehow my wife isn't as proud of me as I am of myself because I am psyched! It took way too long to get it but I'm excited and grateful.

When I first saw the caption of 95lb max OHS on the video, I felt a little better about myself, thinking here is another poor dude like me that has a weak OHS. AFTER watching the video, I feel even worse. That was some SERIOUS work. Great job Andy!

JJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJ

started with 12 reps with the bar to warm up.

sets 1-3= 95lbs.
set 4 = 85 lbs.
after that my shoulders started to snap, crackle and pop on the way down so i moved to dumbells so they could move more freely.
sets 5-7= 35lb. DB

The video of Andy is amazing! If I hadn't seen it myself I wouldn't believe it!
I agree with the comments about the posting problems. It's a lot less fun reading the posts these days (and I haven't been around that long). I used to get a few laughs reading them each day.
I still come to the site every day though, I can sift through the noise to get what I want. Thanks Coach!

WOD - 7 sets 3 reps of Push Press

135#, 140#, 95#, 100#, 105#, 110#, 110#

Did not like my form on the 140# so I dropped down to get it. Hard part was the uneasy feeling of pushing from a front rack position. If you don't get control of the bar on the way up, it's gonna get nasty.

Ended with headstand practice.

Did WODs for 3/22 and 3/23 today, trying to catch up after being crossfit-less for a week of travel.

Push Press 7x3 (95-110-120-130-135-135-140) - retried 135 because form was pretty bad

Weighted Pullups 7x1 (45-55-65-70-80-80-85) - last rep was very close, not sure if I got it
