I knew something like this was coming..

Comment #2 - Posted by: mike_b at May 13, 2007 8:29 PM

Hooooowee, this is gonna be a hum-dinger! I can finally put my newfound skills in muscle-ups to the test.

Comment #3 - Posted by: gaucoin at May 13, 2007 8:30 PM

I am a swim coach and Level I Trainer.

Finally, a way to bring my two loves together. This is an entirely new universe of hurt. I love it.

Thank you to Coach and the entire crew that helped out this weekend in Golden. Your passion, knowledge, instruction, encouragement and inspiration left me grateful and ready to go again. The only suggestion I can make is to add a third day...I wanted more! If you haven't been to a certification...go. Thank you again for a truly wonderful experience and for everything you do day-in and day-out to share your passion with all of us.

Is there a substitute for muscle-ups? I don't have anything resembling rings available to me.

Comment #7 - Posted by: Andy at May 13, 2007 8:52 PM

I assume 4x the amount if have to do pull ups and dips in place of muscle ups?

Comment #8 - Posted by: J-Dub at May 13, 2007 8:54 PM

Subs for muscleups

Pullups and dips. Some have suggested 1 min of both somewhat equates to one muscle-up. Most common substitution is 3 pullups +3 dips, or 4 pullups +4 dips.

Comment #9 - Posted by: AlanR at May 13, 2007 8:56 PM

That was from the faq

Comment #10 - Posted by: AlanR at May 13, 2007 8:57 PM

Wow, what a fun looking workout. :)

Comment #11 - Posted by: Keith W. at May 13, 2007 9:05 PM

Are they implementing Crossfit into BUD/s indoc?

Comment #12 - Posted by: Matt H at May 13, 2007 9:09 PM

Swimming underwater is pointless. The workout would be good if it was 25 meters of butterfly instead. You don't run holding your breath, don't swim holding your breath either. There is no benefit to it.

Comment #13 - Posted by: Joe at May 13, 2007 9:35 PM

#15 sprinting is a completely anerobic activity
world class sprinters have demonstrated this by sprinting 40 to 200 meters-WHILE HOLDING THEIR BREATH. there was no significant decrease in their times-so, it is logical to assume that to stimulate the anerobic muscles/system, underwater swimming would be beneficial.

Comment #14 - Posted by: mtvet at May 13, 2007 9:45 PM

Fi Muxlow, how many places can you be in one time?!!

Comment #15 - Posted by: Matt Swift (swiftFIT, Brisbane) at May 13, 2007 9:54 PM

#16 i dont think that proves its anaerobic...

Comment #16 - Posted by: serkan at May 13, 2007 9:58 PM

We've mixed swimming with CrossFit afew times, its a great combination.

Last effort was pushups, thrusters, 100m swim, and every 3rd lap was underwater [10 rounds total]. There's some pics on youtube under CrossFit Newcastle.

15* water temp that day....lots of shrinkage!!

Comment #17 - Posted by: Daz at May 13, 2007 10:06 PM

#19 + 20:

Sure it does, just like driving doesn't require gas, since you're not constantly refilling.

Comment #18 - Posted by: Randy at May 13, 2007 10:06 PM

A most gracious thank-you to Mr. Glassman, the Crossfit HQ staff and all of the trainers at the Golden, CO certification. This weekend was not only informative but also inspiring and entertaining. I had a great time, learned much and met incredible people. Thank you all for your support and encouragement! What a professional opertation!

Comment #19 - Posted by: Erica at May 13, 2007 10:45 PM

Just wanted to send a congrats out to Andy Hendel on the opening of CrossFit Charlotte's new gym. Had a great workout today, one of many to come. The space is amazing. Anyone who's in the area and wants to start, stop by. Anyone who's visiting, also come on down and have a brutal workout. :-D

Crikey!

When we had to do the 120 PUs/Dips as a sub for 30 MUs a while back it was the longest 'for time' WoD ever for me (~35 minutes). Now you want me to do HPCs as well?

It's gonna be a long lunch break!

Comment #21 - Posted by: Colm O'Reilly at May 13, 2007 11:10 PM

For the substitution does that mean 45-36-27 of:
Pull-ups
Dips

Crikeys, right!

12:27 - Ring MUs and 95# HPCs. Ring MUs with full elbow extension at both bottom and top of each rep, rings turned out and away from body at the top of each rep.

Comment #25 - Posted by: Kelly Moore at May 14, 2007 3:36 AM

23:58 using 95# for the HPCs (bw=127) and the 3x pullups and 3x dips sub for the MUs. Not surprisingly, I spent most of the time doing pullups and dips.

had to substitute muscle ups for 3x chins (all strict full ROM) and dips so it took me a lot longer than it should have. my gym doesnt have the ceiling space. but a good session.

Comment #29 - Posted by: izzet girgin at May 14, 2007 4:45 AM

Does anyone have a good stretch for the lat? My right side has been killing me since the WO from the 10th, and I'd like to see if I can work out the spasm before today's HPC's. Thanks in advance.

Had to use a 135lbs. bar

Time 19:32

This weekend I discovered the CFLive archives. Although I've been reading everything about CF I can get my hands on, these shows are a much more efficient way to inform myself about all the topics surrounding the CF methodology.
As soon as I am back home next August I will try to find an adult gymnastics class (thank Roger Harrell), purchase a nice kettlebell (thanks Tom Corrigan) and start to implement the nutrition recommendations (thanks Robb Wolf). Very inspiring stuff.
It is clear that the WoD is only a tip of the iceberg the CrossFit-project really is.

Rd 3 PU/Dips: 8:35.62

Total: 33:19.48

Just wanted to drop a quick note thanking Coach & crew for the awesome weekend! I'll have to agree with an above comment, the certification was too short.

Comment #37 - Posted by: Bryan Fillmer at May 14, 2007 5:59 AM

Subbed pull-ups (3x) and ring dips (1x) for muscle ups

time: 29:07. All sets extremely broken.

Comment #38 - Posted by: Rick510 at May 14, 2007 6:00 AM

I don't know how to describe this weekend other than it was one of the most incredible experiences I have had. Coach Glassman and the entire CrossFit crew were knowledgeable, exciting, inspiring and fun. I cannot thank them enough for exceeding my expectations and renewing my passion for training.

Thank you Coach Glassman and all the HQ staff and trainers that helped make this weekend’s seminar so enlightening.

The routines you put us through in order to teach us the proper form were grueling. Your staff's ability to detect faults in our form from across the parking lot was uncanny. Just when I thought I could relax my form Annie, Nicole or B. would show up behind me and put me to task to fix it.

The lecture portion of the seminar was very informative and Coach's sense of humor is top notch. I never realized that Coach was so funny.

The seminar is a definite must do and is worth much more than what you charge for it.

Annie you are one hell of a motivator. I will never again forget to count my reps, and if by chance I do, I do I will start over.

And Coach, after reading an article in the paper about fitness boot camp this morning, and how people need a drill instructor to motivate them, I could only think of one thing.

3 2 1 Go and there is no way I'm going to be DFL.

Comment #47 - Posted by: cole at May 14, 2007 7:07 AM

I would just like to echo the comments already made regarding the seminar this weekend. The methodology now makes even more sense than it did before, but what I realize now more than ever is that people are what make this program so amazing. The trainers and Coach himself are just a great group of people who care about what they are doing and about others. Their energy is infectious and the entire experience really goes beyond words--yes, an English major at a loss for words. I could listen to Coach speak forever because he's incredibly intelligent, cuts through the BS to what's real and true, and is damn funny. Anyway, thanks again to everyone involved.

i am just returning to olympic lifts since high school, so i struggle finding the appropriate weight -- i am still not strong enough for some of the standard scaling. this was WAY too light for the HPC. they were a welcome break from the pullups/dips, so they weren't enough. i am still a bit new to CF, so i will get better, i promise!

Comment #52 - Posted by: suavdaddy at May 14, 2007 7:27 AM

#13 Joe,

Butterfly is a workout, I agree. But from my competitive swimming experience, you breath 1-2 in a 50m race, 3-5 in a 100m race (Both freestyle). Breathing slows you down, so you limit it.

Practicing swimming while holding your breath increases lung capacity for sprints. It also trains your muscles to be more efficient.

Comment #53 - Posted by: Mark R at May 14, 2007 7:36 AM

Subbed 145lbs for HPC and 3/3 for muscle-ups.

25:45.

Felt pretty slow, but the grip was giving out somethin' awful in the last few HPCs.

More better faster

Comment #59 - Posted by: Marty at May 14, 2007 7:55 AM

Coach and crew, thanks for a great weekend. The class helped me realize two things. #1. How much I already knew from the readings and the web site. #2. How much I don't know and what an endless and enjoyable path to knowledge I am on!

#13 Joe, I have coached kids from just beginners to Olympic trial qualifiers and swimming underwater is vital. You can't swim any faster than moment you dive in. Staying tight and long will allow you to travel farther and faster with less effort. To do this it is good to learn to hold your breath beyond the distance you would normaly come up for air.

Comment #60 - Posted by: Dave at May 14, 2007 7:59 AM

Watching the vid made me flashback to all my time at the tank and how I miss NAB..Nice workout..gotta try that one soon.

Started with 155 lbs and only got six reps before I started spazzing out. Switched to 135lbs for rest. Sub'ed 4 PU and 4 Dips for 1 muscle up.

35minutes, subbed 2xPullup+Dip, and dropped to 115# on the hang cleans.

Apparently I've never done hang cleans before, I thought (foolishly) that they'd be easier than regular cleans. Sweet merciful crap was I wrong.

Comment #72 - Posted by: conorb at May 14, 2007 9:16 AM

WOD:

EDWARD: 24.43 (subbed 115 for HPC and 4 pullups/dips for muscle-ups - I really need rings)

CASEY: 23.02 (subbed 75 for HPC and 4 pullups/dips, gravitron assisted)

After a 3000m swim yesterday, the shoulders didn't appreciate the heavy weight of the HPC. Getting a solid core workout and bike ride in later today.

Comment #73 - Posted by: Edward at May 14, 2007 9:18 AM

Oops, scratch that - we did 3/3 for subs, not 4.

Comment #74 - Posted by: Edward at May 14, 2007 9:19 AM

#13

I agree with post #53 as well. I was a sprinter and would breathe only once during a 50m race and then maybe 5 times during a 100m race. Breathing slows you down. When I was in my prime I had a breath hold of 4:15 and I think that can come into play later in life as you deal with lung capacity. I just did a pulmonary functioning test and had the largest lung capacity he had tested (7 liters). I'm hoping that I won't need supplemental oxygen when I'm old.

CrossFit Crew,
Thanks for the great weekend. After going to the gym this morning for a bit I realize how many people can benefit from something like this. Looking forward to getting things started in Park City. Great job to everyone this weekend, trainers and participants. Anyone doing this deserves credit no matter what times or loads you are posting because it takes some serious hard work, which most people aren't willing to put in. Thanks again for all the great information and help.

Comment #79 - Posted by: Speal at May 14, 2007 9:54 AM

CFWU +push ups, less dips and PUs


Had to drop to 135# after 7 reps -the mind was willing, but the flesh was weak.

Subbed 3x push ups and dips for MUs

First WOD I had to weight scale in a while. Thanks for raising the bar again.

Comment #80 - Posted by: jfd4 at May 14, 2007 9:57 AM

m/172/6'/34yrs

Last CF for a week - I'm running a bike camp over the weekend - but that was a nice spot to stop at.

Cheats: Jumping MUs. I'm raising the rings each time MUs come up in the WOD. The rings are now the width of a hand-and-half over my head. I'd like to raise three more times then go "no feet."

HPCs as RX'd. Brutal on my hands. 155# is pretty heavy!

About 25 minutes (my watch kept stopping when my wrist rubbed on the rings).

Comment #84 - Posted by: Mike Gray - Switzerland at May 14, 2007 10:24 AM

#82 veronika

Scaling is a personal choice based on your objectives, strength, ability, etc. I noticed that Kelly Moore scaled the hang cleans to 95#. Just for reference, she's extremely strong and often sets the standard for people posting to this board.

For the cleans, I'd recommend using a weight that allows you to do at least three at a time. If you're just learning hang cleans, just the bar might be appropriate. If you can't do muscle-ups, there are numerous options, including, as noted earlier on the board, subbing 3 or 4 each pull-ups and dips for each muscle-up. For beginners, I'd say 1x or 2x pull-ups/dips might be plenty. Other options would be jumping or seated muscle-ups.

Don't be overwhelmed. Choose an option and do it!

This past weekend in Golden exceeded all expectations i had. The commitment of the trainers to better every single person there was amazing. And the passion you all had from coach to trainer was amazing. We all came in as individuals and left as a part of the crossfit family, and we owe it all to the atmosphere you all created for us. Thank you for an experience i will never forget...nor will my traps.

155 lb. HPC
Subbed pullup and dips for muscles up at a 3:1 ratio. Spent a lot of time doing pull-ups especially since I can't do a full kipping pull up on the pull-up station without cracking knee caps. First time doing this many pull-ups with no assist.

After 3 weeks of CF I am feeling the benefits when I do the workouts and when I play basketball. I am recovering from sprints so much faster now.

#82 Veronika - there are also scaled versions of the WOD posted on one of the Affiliate sites:

http://www.brandxmartialarts.com/

Look in the CrossFit Forum, the Workout of the Day topic, and there are several versions of the workout posted from Big Dawgs (not scaled) to Buttercups (the easiest/lightest loads & reps).

Remember, we're not necessarily weak, we have a lot of as-yet-unrealized potential!

The Navy Seals believe full-heartedly in hypoxic training, but the Air Force PJs and CCs don't as much (I was CC - 308 CCS Little Rock AFB, AR). There was and maybe still is a big debate about it. If your thinking about trying out for any of the militay commando units, then definitely train it. If anyone is thinking about Pararescue or Combat Control- email me and I'll give you the heads up on what to expect during "Indoc". I was a master physical trainer for the teams before I got injured during a night jump.

Yikes! Another humbling experience.

Had to drop the weight down to 95 lbs. for the hang power cleans.

Never done a muscle-up, substituted 1 strict pull-up and 1 dip per muscle-up. Yes, I know, not the prescribed ratio, but tough enough.

Had to pause repeatedly because my grip just plain failed. Had to do pull-ups on a thin and very smooth bar which really sucked.

Still took me ~20 min. for the workout, got some nasty calluses, and ripped the skin off the side of my thumb.

Not exactly my best workout... |:^{

Comment #97 - Posted by: crazyXgerman at May 14, 2007 11:51 AM

110lbs hang power cleans. Cant do muscle ups yet so sub'd for pullups and dips on a pull up bar. 20min total with having to catch my breath after each set of cleans. 2nd week of Crossfit and Im already seeing the difference though. I love the challenge of the workouts and dread them at the same time. Gotta keep it going...

If you had to sacrifice half of this workout, that being either the MU's or the HPC's and replace them with another alternate exercise which one would it be and why? Rings are at home, weights are at the gym and there is no place at my gym to hang my rings?

Comment #104 - Posted by: J.Brown at May 14, 2007 12:12 PM

I loved the video of the CF swim workout; sadly, assembling the necessary apparatus poolside is highly rare. Generally, the best way to CF at the pool is to combine pushups or burbees with swim efforts. A CF Journal (no. 36 I think) had some great CF swim workouts. One in particular called for pool muscleups, swim, pushups. Great stuff.

17:48 as rx'ed, my only real goal was to complete this as prescribed and I done did it.

My competitive spirit kicked in and it affected my performance negatively because I missed a few, especially near the end. If I was more patient I probably would have finished this closer to the 16 minute mark. Very happy to complete it, but I'm comin' for ya, Mr. Corson...

41yom / 151

CFWU x3 x15 +Pushups, - (Pull-ups, Dips)
WOD – Read reps wrong and am cursing myself now did 21, 15, 9 because I thought the reps were Fran like.

21x155# HPC (had no business doing this much weight) Sets(7,4,2,2,2,2,2)
63 pull-ups / 63 dips
15x135# HPC (should have used this weight from the start) Sets (5,3,3,2,2)
45 pull-ups / 45 dips
9x115# HPC Sets (5,4)
27 pull-ups / 27 dips

Time: An embarrassing 30:44 although I feel better about the time now since I did the extra reps. Most of the time was on the first set of HPC’s.

I had to keep decreasing weight in the HPC because of grip. I have never had grip failure before but combining the cleans with the pull-ups really did me in. I had a couple of really good full squat saves during the HPC’s and no drops.

Thanks! That will teach me to look at the WOD quick the night before. I came back from the gym and started reading the posts and I thought everyone scaled at first until I went back to the main page and noticed the reps. I was so worried about Cleaning 155# that I just didn't think about the reps much. Note to self write the Work-out down and bring it to the gym. Have a good work-out... Mike

Been taking a little rest from CF...resting a few tweaks!

12 and a half mile bike, then 450 meter swim.
Then decided to do the WOD, since hubby was doing it and I didn't want to just sit there waiting.

Scaled way back on weight on HPCs.
Also used 50# assistance on pull-ups, and 30# on dips.

Apparently Jerry read 21-15-9, which meant 63,45,27 on pull-ups and dips.

Used about #80 for the HPCs, subbed chin-ups/dips for MUs at 1:1. That was enough to put me under anyway, but my left shoulder's been really sore lately. I think from all the GTG chins I've been doing are aggravating a sprain I got a couple of years ago.

I really need to get better at these as I know what to do theoretically but my body reverts back to bending at the waist and using too much arm pull. The poor form caused me to get a bit too flustered early on.

Still a day behind, so I did yesterday's squats, today, results posted there.

I, at first, read this one wrong for the reps and saw a few others that had to, so I went back and reread it. Still have to scale like crazy, but now it's not quite so daunting a task! :)

The certification seminar this weekend in Golden Co, was an incredible experience. A BIG THANKS to Coach Glassman, Nicole, Annie, Brendan, Tony, the rest of the HQ staff, and other trainers that helped out for all their hard work.

Flight to Colorado...$ I forget.
Hotel....$ Doesn't matter.
Food....$ Who cares.
CrossFit Certification Seminar...$ Not enough!

Benefits of the seminar...The instruction, inspiration, motivation, and experience....absolutely Priceless.

Coach thanks for the killer swim workout, I love this format terrestrial WOD posted with a pool/land WOD.

As for the Golden Cert, BIG shout out to the HQ crew, you all rock, and an even bigger shout to all the green shirts for making this certification the most efficacious expenditure of two day I can think of in the recent past (like the past 15 years!). I would gladly go for more if my body would allow. To all the other participants it was a pleasure meeting all of you and hearing from you how CrossFit has impacted your lives and your training. I can say that it has had a deep continuing impact in both areas for my life (my wife and I are both CrossFit trainers and my body is changing fast). In closing I would like to give a pat on the back to the crew from Park City man you can come benchmark any of our WOD’s anytime.

I'd love to see some kind of CrossFit workout involving swimming. However, it seem to meit would be a major departure from the "garage gym" mentality that crossfit represent. No one has their own 25m pool, and I've seen no pool with chin up bars (and I seen alot--perhaps 50+--training pools) Even the training pool at the Amphip base on Coronado where the Seals train is not set up to do what the video shows. (unless they've made some changes) so, it seems to me that a CrossFit WOD involving swimming would require a pool, ocean or lake.

Also, having been around the Air Force PJ's for many years, when they do their 25m under water swim it is never with an oxygen deficit, i.e. it is the first exercise done. Asking anyone to swim underwater for 25m after doing chin ups and thrusters as fast as possible (x 5) is probably humanly impossible.

As an aside, I would be interested in learning of any training effect attributed to holding one's breath during an oxygen deficit.

46/F/125 38:49 HPC's @ 45lbs. subbed 3 pullups/1 ring dip for the 1st set (21), then 2 pullups/1 ring dip for 2nd and 3rd sets (15 & 9).

Golden Certification was amazing. We're a little late posting because we had to drive home today, straight north back to Canada. It was definitely worth the trip and we would go again in a heart beat.

Everything was invaluable, from the classroom lectures to the hands-on practice to the team workouts. The trainers were personable and professional and it was great to meet everyone. Thanks Coach for this great opportunity, you held everyone's rapt attention from beginning to end.

If anyone hasn't been to a cert and gets a chance to go, do it, you won't regret it.

Ken #216,

“I’d love to se some kind of CrossFit workout involving swimming.”

- That’s exactly what the video depicts.

“However, it seems to me it would be a major departure from the “garage gym” mentality that CrossFit represents.”

- Not really. Check the archives; in the past we regularly included swimming in the WOD’s. (Backed off after incessant whining about no place to swim.) Many of our Spec Op’s CrossFitters have included swimming in their WOD’s for years. The CrossFit charter is functionality, intensity, and variance. Swimming is a perfect fit.

“Even the training pool at the Amphib base on Coronado where the SEAL’s train is not set up to do what the video shows.”

- That is the Amphib Base on Coronado; that is their set-up. They regularly include swimming, of course, in their WOD’s.

Also, having been around the Air Force PJ’s for many years, when the do their 25m under water swim it is never with an oxygen deficit….”

- The current completion rate for scores of CrossFitters at PJ Indoc is 100%. Contact for substantiation/verification. There’s a new Sheriff in town – his name is Pukie, he does everything differently.

WOD with subs-
65 lbs HPC- 15 reps
45 jumping pullups and jumping dips
65 lb HPC- 6 reps
55 lb HPC- 6 reps
36 jumping pullups and jumping dips
55 lb HPC- 9 reps
27 jumping pullups and jumping dips

Time- 20:36

I felt like my stomach was going to rip open with the first set of situps in the WU!

To many failures in round 2 with 65 lbs HPC so dropped the weight down. Pullups and dips were broken into sets of 6 or 10. I need to start doing forearm exercises.

27:04 with 155 HPC and 3x pull-up dips. Was unable to do bar muscle ups or kipping pull-ups today due to a lack of skin on my hands from where my calluses were on Sunday.

As for the HPC every time I did one I felt I was being watched by the Cert. trainers from this weekend. Needless to say my form improved drastically.

Subbed 135lbd Hang Power Cleans and 3 Pull-ups/Dips per muscle-up.

Time of 23:01. The pull-ups really slowed me down, surprisingly.

I felt exhausted and needed to let my body rest, so I didn't do the WOD.

CFWU x 3

Worked on form for the olympic lifts.

Comment #279 - Posted by: wg at May 15, 2007 6:29 PM

28/f/156#

I took a rest day yesterday and did this workout today.

CFWU x 2, dog push-ups instead of upper body work

Brand X puppy mod - 15-12-9 55# power cleans, pull-ups, dips

I did unassisted chins as well as possible (first half of each round's reps, broken) and then switched to beginner pull-ups. I tried some shaky partial dips (I'm weak and uncomfortable near the bottom) until I discovered that I could assist with my legs using the small high step on the Gravitron. (That machine is cantankerous and takes a while to warm up, which is why I never use it the standard way.) The last two sets of dips were full depth and self-assisted.

Power cleans felt pretty good, though I have to work on my habit of landing wide. Most of my reps were solid and I got a good stomp on at least one of them. I'm no longer scared to catch the bar on my shoulders. I took short breaks halfway through each set when I started to lose focus on form.

143lbs/30yoa

15-12-9 reps of (subs):

155lb hang power cleans (155lb for first 9 reps, 135 there after)
muscle-ups (2 false grip ring pull-ups/2 ring dips x 15, then 1 false grip ring pull-ups/1 ring dip x 12, then x 9)

TIME: 20:43

I've only gotten one muscle-up so far (and having a hard time repeating the feat) so I tried to sub something to closely mimic the move. Hook grip was key to holding the bar on the HPC. False grips scraped up my wrists, which could have been cooler only if they had bled.

Comment #289 - Posted by: LFD Kevin at May 16, 2007 8:23 AM

Theory part of the seminar was great.
Practical application - not so much.
Some brief points:
1. Level 2 seekers in green shirts ranged from very good and knowledgeable to downright scary and mislead.

2. Squatting a deadlift is retarded and should not be taught.

3. What is the use of medball clean? (and mandatory squatting while deadlifting the ball?)

4. Not enough time spent on practicing the basic moves (dead, squat, press) prior to going next step.

5. Extremely low level of oly lifting knowledge and experience among Level 2 trainees.

6. It used to say that seminars only had 30 attendants, because more people than that and quality dropped. There were at least 50 of us and quality of hands on instruction was lower than expected.

That's about it.
My expectations weren't met.

nice remark. the body is not a car. and the body can be stimulated to rev up certain energy generating systems-like a car can't-by holding one's breath-you are correct-this doesn't prove that sprinting is anaerobic, but that isn't to say it doesn't have the capacity to improve one's fitness, just like swimming underwater does. comparing a body to a car is rediculous, how does one improve a car's fitness by driving it underwater?--last comment made just to be completely unrelated to fitness, as your comment was. lets get back to fitness

Ring MU: no more than two at a time.

I was thinking under 10, until I started, and then the goal was 15. I was on pace but the last few MU weren't coming. Had to help a few getting started in all rounds...rings were hung low and awkward...no groove like last time I did MU. Several failed attempts so the last one took about a minute. HPC were good tho, good pulls and hip extension.

135# HPC's and quasi MU's. Working on hook grip, but could only do 3 HPC's before dropping the barbell. Rings set at shoulder height so my starting position made a right angle with my torso. Still can't do a dang MU!

WOD: 15-12-9 each of
155# HPCs, MUs (sub'd 3 pull-ups and 3 dips on the bars)
t = 40:10 Lots of time on the PU and dips...HPC should have been scaled to maybe 135 so that I could keep up the work-load...oh well!
Messed up and missed the dips in the first round, remembered after 9/12 HPCs...so did 'em and continued where I left off.

m/39/200
11:08 with jumping muscleups and HPC at 155#. The HPCs were brutal as expected but made the choice to sub jumping MUs for 3/3 sub (like we usually do due to time constraints) and found them pretty tough at the end reps. Just like when I first started jumping Pullups I didn't think they'd be that hard BUT do enough of em and boy do you feel em.
