Never done this one before. Excited to start it off tomorrow!

Very Strong! but are your toe-nails painted black or are you suffering from some disease Greg ;)

Lt. Michael Murphy awarded medal of honor.

See news on yahoo.com 10/22/07

Oooh, I did two rounds of this in prep for the OPT challenge now I'm glad that's all I did. Lynne is way tougher than it looks, keep those calluses intact!!

Comment #5 - Posted by: gaucoin at October 22, 2007 8:27 PM

Anyone know how much the guy who did the weighted pullups weighs?

Also, inverted rope climb is probably the easiest of those 4 feats (well, MUs considering it was Annie's first CF even without full extension).

Comment #6 - Posted by: steve at October 22, 2007 8:28 PM

just wondering if we are suppose to rest inbetween rounds.

Comment #7 - Posted by: rob k at October 22, 2007 8:33 PM

My first Lynne! This should be fun. One quick Q, do we rest between sets?

Comment #8 - Posted by: Geoff at October 22, 2007 8:35 PM

Thanks mcquilliams for heads up on Lt. Murphy.
Fine honor for one of America's warrior elite.
Thank you Mikey.

Comment #9 - Posted by: Matt Fruetel at October 22, 2007 8:35 PM

This one is so demanding on the upper body, and even the abs. It burns so good.

#6 Steve

Greg Amundson is all over this site. I believe he is right at 200 lbs.

Questions about how much rest b/w sets:

I recommend keeping it consistent every round, somewhere b/w 3-5 minutes

Comment #10 - Posted by: wich at October 22, 2007 8:36 PM

I did this one last week. Funny story, but my results were.

October 12th “Lynne”
Bench Press (195 lbs): 11-7-6-5-4
Total: 33
Pull ups: 22-15-11-11-10
Total: 69
Combined Total: 102

I did this thinking I weighed 195lbs(I have for years). I weighed myself 2 days ago and I only weighed 180lbs! My bench numbers would have been alot higher.


Comment #11 - Posted by: Kyle S at October 22, 2007 8:37 PM

#7 im pretty sure there is supposed to be no resting in between its just a quick change then do the next set its only 5 minutes so not enough time to do much resting!

Comment #12 - Posted by: tony nic at October 22, 2007 8:37 PM

gaucoin

tell us about the challenge. how did it go? how did you do?

Comment #13 - Posted by: ken c at October 22, 2007 8:37 PM

ok.. my first time doing "Lynne" and am I reading right that you do 5 sets of bench first and then 5 sets of pull ups.. or is it 1 bench and then 1 pull up set?

Comment #14 - Posted by: AROBE at October 22, 2007 8:40 PM

whoops ment 5 rounds not minutes. doooh

Comment #15 - Posted by: tony nic at October 22, 2007 8:40 PM

#10 said 3-5 minutes rest and #13 said no rest. Which one is it? The workout is drastically different if there is no rest between rounds.

Comment #16 - Posted by: BP at October 22, 2007 8:41 PM

http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/CrossFit_LynneWOD.mov

Looks like you can rest between sets, 5 mins according to the video.

Woohoo!

Comment #17 - Posted by: Geoff at October 22, 2007 8:41 PM

a new WOD....and i can't do it -- no access to a bench w/bar :(

Comment #18 - Posted by: bklyn_chris at October 22, 2007 8:42 PM

Oh yeah. Wear a tight shirt unless you want it to tear. I have never had such an intense "pump" (for lack of better word)in my chest, arms, and back.

Comment #19 - Posted by: Kyle S. at October 22, 2007 8:43 PM

Wich:

Thanks. I know Greg is all over the site.. didn't recognize him from the side though. :P Was mainly looking at what he was using for weights.. buncha kettlebells and other makeshift stuff lol.

Comment #20 - Posted by: steve at October 22, 2007 8:56 PM

#16 looks like they were both right - no resting between the bench and the pullups, but rest after the set before the next set begins.

Comment #21 - Posted by: Jeremy Stecker at October 22, 2007 8:58 PM

Ooooh boy, Greg. I hope you have a good reason for the painted toenails! You and your old FTO are going to have a talk come January! ;)

Comment #22 - Posted by: Ian Carver at October 22, 2007 9:01 PM

would max push ups be a decent replacement for bp if one has no access to weights?

Comment #23 - Posted by: phil at October 22, 2007 9:01 PM

rest questioners:

there is a vid of b. doing this somewhere on this site, which clearly states to rest several minutes between rounds. this is NOT for time, so take your time recovering after each round of pullups. i do not believe you are supposed to rest after the benches. enjoy this one...

Looking forward to my first Lynne tomorrow!

Comment #26 - Posted by: Kieran at October 22, 2007 9:16 PM

Dang... We still don't have a bench or access to a "regular" gym. I guess we'll sub handstand pushups, unless someone has a better suggestion

Comment #27 - Posted by: Dave and Belinda at October 22, 2007 9:35 PM

BTW, no rest between benches and pullups, 3-5 min. rest between rounds. I usually sub unassisted dips if I don't have a bench. Hope that helps...

Comment #28 - Posted by: FireSmac at October 22, 2007 9:38 PM

I think no rest is posted so you can decide. If you view this primarily as a strength workout the 3-5 minutes suggested is correct. I start each round every 5 minutes so the rest in between is somewhere in the 3 to 3 1/2 min range. I actualy do weighted pull-ups in thsi WOD as I do use this one as a strength focus (I need it as I have to scale my benches to 80% body weight)

However, if you want to do this WOD like a metabolic conditioning+strength workout workout then blast through...it'll be a short one but that is OK...keep the variety....you can even alternate how you do it. My CrossFit gym takes this WOD concept and has you go at it for 20 minutes. You total the number of benches and pull-ups in the 20 mins.

Comment #29 - Posted by: Tony L. at October 22, 2007 9:43 PM

#23 is right on the money, but who is to say how you perform this WOD as long as you do it consistenly. I rest 3-5 between exercises because that's how much time I need to recover.

The challenge was awesome, OPT did an amazing job setting the whole thing up and everyone there had a great time competing together in a fun and challenging atmosphere. Saturday AM was the hopper and PM was the trail run with Sunday being the CFT day. I was happy with how I did and I actually PB'ed on the total. Kudos to all the competitors for coming out and giving it they're all!

Something wrong with right arm it would not push up during bench presses usually I do this with 185-190#. It was very strange I started to fail during my warm up sets. There was no muscle fatigue arm just wouldnt push. Anyone have a guess why?

However, this was my best pull up performance to date.

my first Lynne too- it's gonna be fun!

Comment #33 - Posted by: AndrewBueno at October 22, 2007 10:35 PM

Completed my first marathon yesterday (Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco), which was grueling and painful (thanks to two huge blisters on the balls of both my feet which ripped open at mile 3). As Tim Hamilton mentioned in his post about his kayak race a couple days ago, the willingness to tolerate that pain, my overall conditioning and endurance were definitely enhanced by and attributable to CrossFit, not just the workouts, but the community of people. I thought about the many people who have posted about their incredible comebacks from injuries and illnesses, the videos of people puking mid-workout and carrying on, and I thought about all the heroes (especially Lt. Murphy). At Mile 19 I met a woman who was on the verge of quitting, and started talking with her, told her the story of Marcus Luttrell dragging himself 7 miles across the mountain in Afghanistan, and she decided she could keep going (we finished side by side).

The many pictures and posters of the people afflicted with various blood cancers were also an inspiration, as was my own personal honoree, Connor, a 14-year-old boy who has been a close friend and classmate of my daughter for 8 years (he's a true athlete, a hockey and soccer player, whose indomitable spirit in coping with leukemia has kept me moving through many a difficult mile). I'm happy to say the Team in Training raised $18.6 million for research and patient support with this single race.

Happy though I am to have finally accomplished this goal, it really did bring home to me the many downsides to specializing in something like endurance running. I'm glad to be able to return to regular CrossFit workouts without having to figure out how they'll affect the track workout or long run on the weekend, and I'm thrilled to know that I'll never again see a "Run 10k" and think "Eek! I don't know if I can do that!"

I'm going to do this tomorrow, scaled as I can't yet do bw bench press, and glad it it doesn't involve too much of the lower body. Thank you to everyone who posts, especially those who share a bit of their personal story, to those who bravely workout in front of the video camera, to Coach for all the workouts and amazing content made available to us, and to all who serve both abroad and at home.

Comment #34 - Posted by: cynthiaj at October 22, 2007 10:36 PM

His toes are painted! :)

The Kettlebell cert exceeded my expectations. I can't explain how exciting it was to go to Santa Cruz and meet Annie, Nicole and Greg. When the English language comes up with a word I'll let you guys know. This was like a dream. Thank you to everyone for welcoming me. Jeff Martone rocks big time. It was great meeting my fellow Crossfitters.

I'm heading up to Seattle tomorrow for the Barbell cert. I wish I could go to every seminar. It's such a blast. I'm on cloud 9

I'm going to post the pictures and videos I took. I'll post a link when I get them up.

I LOVE CROSSFIT

a bit dissapointing but did the 21 - 15 - 9 workout of sunday 11 hours ago so hope that was holding me back...

Comment #36 - Posted by: onefinesuri at October 22, 2007 10:48 PM

I went to the kettle bell cert this past weekend. I highly recommend it. J

Jeff Martone is an inspiration and phenomenal teacher - he is NOT NORMAL!!!

Greg assisted with the teaching which was a SUPER UBER DUPER BONUS... if you get a chance to hang with Greg of Jeff, I highly recommend it... just being around these guys brings out your A GAME.

Like Allison mentioned, there are no words for the impact these cert weekends have on ONE's life.

It's worth pointing out that the Lynne video is NOT wfs. Just to note.

A good quick read about Lt. Murphy and what he did for anyone who doesn't know his story. Now, six months after I started doing CrossFit, I'm beginning to see why there is such a passion for it here.

Comment #39 - Posted by: Kieran at October 22, 2007 11:00 PM

Love the video. Greg A is my hero. I had never seen him in a video when he had smiled, now I worship him even more.

19/m/73.5kg

I didn't think that I was strong enough to do BW BP's so I used 70kg instead. Did exercise every five minutes, so WO was spread over 45 minutes (with 15 minutes WU for the hour).

BP: 3,3,3,2,3 = 11 (will beat this next time with using BW)
PU: 25,25,23,22,21 = 115

Quite pleased with the pull up numbers, not so much the BP, but I will work on that... As well as dips and push presses and thrusters and... The list keeps growing!

Comment #40 - Posted by: timh at October 22, 2007 11:03 PM

Cynthia, that is fantastic work! That's also a huge sum of money going to a great cause.

A question concerning gym etiquette.

Having been certified in crossfit and a stickler for form even before I found crossfit what is proper etiquette when seeing a fellow crossfitter at the gym with horrible form, let him be and hope he doesn't injure himself or mention something and risk pissing the guy off.

Great Question.

Depending on how well you know the guy depends on the approach. The extrovert in me says says approach him with a smile and introduce yourself by name. If he doesn't know you know, open up the conversation by verifying he is doing CF. With out sounding like you are bragging tell him how long you've been doing CF and that you are certified then make the correction. As long as he is not to much of a Type A, egotistical sob and truly knows CF he should be OK with it. If he doesn't want your help then shrug your shoulders and walk away with a smile.

I would be thrilled to be approached by a certified CrossFitter correcting me on my form. (Talk about Type A personalities, I'm a cop and a pilot.) To me the correction would mean I will bet getter and that I've met another member of the family.

Comment #50 - Posted by: Adam W at October 23, 2007 2:36 AM

Last sentence should be -

To me the correction would mean I will be getting better and that I've met another member of the CF family.

Anybody know what the WOD is called that is 150 wallballs for time? Did it yesterday with a 25lb homeade wb for 10:02. I know there is a video of it, but don't remember what it is called. I want to see if my time was respectable.

Comment #53 - Posted by: J the Bear at October 23, 2007 3:31 AM


tabata squats
25 half height box jumps
tabata pullups
25 half height box jumps
tabata pullups
25 half height box jumps
tabata burpees
25 half height box jumps

Obviously this is way to much for her on her first time. I am going to scale the box jumps to something a bit lower as well as scaling the number of them. Here's my question. Do I scale the others so that she does 1/2 tabata's, or have her do 2 of the 4 tabata's, or what?

Some suggestions would be welcome, and anyone with any experience with this would be helpful as well.

Comment #54 - Posted by: J the Bear at October 23, 2007 3:38 AM

The begining part to the above post is that my spouse wants to join us for tomorrow's WOD. How should I scale it given it is her first time? Don't know what happened to the post when I sent it last time, sorry about the confusion.

What do you do if you don't have a spotter.

Not many people at my gym so probably will be hard to find someone to spot for every set of bench.

Can't do a bodyweight bench press yet. So I scaled to my 5RM. Pullups done with a supinated grip, kipping. I wasn't sure what the standard is on resting in "Lynne" so I went with my usual for a 5x5 bench press workout, 5 minutes.

62.5kg Bench Press: 5,6,5,5,5
Chinups: 12,10,9,9,8
5 min rest between rounds.

For people with no bench or barbell, the closest sub would definitely be pushups. Weighted pushups would be even better if you can find a way.

Comment #75 - Posted by: Tim Hamilton at October 23, 2007 5:18 AM

Go, Lynne!

I and my buddy are new to Crossfitting, so don't blow me out when I tell you that I could only do 60% body weight and pull-ups with a spot!

But, I post it here for Crossfitters to hold my feet to the fire while I acclimate to the WODs.

Thanks a TON, and rock on!

Congratulations Cynthiaj, I'm entering my first marathon on Monday 29th October (Dublin). I'll remember you and your effort around the 18 mile mark. And thank you Crossfit for helping me become fitter and more motivated than I ever thought possible.

#34 cynthiaj:

I agree with you about the joy of returning to a regular CrossFit routine after marathon training. My season ends this upcoming weekend in Grand Rapids as I try to run the same pace as G. W. Bush. 3:44 is going to be a huge stretch for me, but I thank you for sharing the things you thought about during the race. I will also keep inspiring images and stories in my mind when I just feel like slowing down or stopping because of the aches. I am definitely going to think about that video I just saw (i.e., Greg continuing to try and stretch that chin over the bar). I can't wait to share with you all how I did.

CrossFit...here I come again...it's been a long time...do you miss me? I miss you!

Comment #89 - Posted by: Mark at October 23, 2007 6:05 AM

regarding the toenail polish: I believe it is common for those involved in the striking arts (fighters) to paint their fingernails and/or toenails black, since they're usually busting up and blackening the nails on heavy bags, opponents' heads, etc. You'll see Chuck Liddell, Hackleman, and others who are tougher than me sporting the same look.

Any suggestions for a sub for pullups-HSPU...? or just omit pullups entirely and rest it ?
Thanks for any suggestions.

Went to my first Yoga class ever this morning. 1 Hour of insane sweating. The room was a sauna. Literally. Felt really good. However, I was tired is my point.

Do you do 1 set of bench press and then 1 set of PU or all the bench sets and then all the PU?

I can bench my bodyweight, but only 1 or 2 reps. Should I be doing that, or use a lower weight to get higher reps like everyone else seems to get? Doing a workout with 5 or 6 benchpress doesn't always feel like its productive

Comment #109 - Posted by: EHR at October 23, 2007 7:00 AM

#96-
I can't bench my bodyweight either, wish I could!
Try BrandX's scaled workout versions....look on the left hand side of the home screen for "Start Here" and click on Brand X Scaled Workouts......they scale them so you still do the workout but at lower weights....

hope this helps!

ChefD,

You do one maxrep set of bench press followed by a maxrep set of PU. Then rest 3 to 5 minutes then go at it again.

Comment #54
J the Bear,
I don't know that I would start a new crossfitter using a tabata type workout. The interval type is so demanding. I started on a tabata workout (first crossfit workout), and missed a week of training because I could hardly move. Then again, I went into it extremely hard. I think a better first workout would be a cindy.

Another workout based off of the 21-15-9 idea would also be good. Do a triplet of sit ups/ push ups/rowing. Best thing would be to ease her into it...I don't think you can ease in using a tabata workout...by the way, the workout you listed looks intense (are the box jumps completed during the 1 minute rest between tabata exercises?)

Didn't feel strong under the bar, hadn't bench pressed in a few months. No spotter so after the first set I scaled the weight back some more. Felt disappointed that I didn't BP more. Overall still a good workout, feel like I'm getting stronger at the PU's.

Comment #132 - Posted by: Frank G. at October 23, 2007 7:52 AM

#34, cynthiaj, Great job in the marathon, done in true CF spirit. A note of caution: while I can appreciate your desire to get back to CF WOD's and no more 3 hour long runs, be careful to give yourself adequate rest and recuperation before jumping back into the deep end of the CF pool. The marathon and its training compromise your body's immune system and your legs probably have lots of microtears and abrasions. Jeff Galloway's book on running advised an easy day of running for every competitive mile run, and in my own personal experience, I incurred nagging strains and pulls by going too hard after a long event. So relax for a while; we'll be here waiting with the puke bucket.

31/F/158/68"
w/u CFWUx2 (+pushups, pullups were playing around with which band to use, not reps)

total = 65

first, ME stuff scares me cause i workout alone. i never truly push to failure. that part sucks. but i definitely went heavier than my last 2 times i did lynne. second, i have been trying to play around with the bands to figure out how to kip with them and i can never get the rhythm. well, i found it in my 3rd set -- whipped out 4-5 kips -- super fun, btw -- but then made myself stop for consistency sake. i will keep trying to get the hang of those kips. they really were fun -- felt like a little kid swingin' around. (i am sure i won't say that on my next angie or murph, though!)

Hey bro, I made a typo, it's not two sets of tabata pullup's, one of them is supposed to be pushups! Two tab's of pullups WOULD be rough! lol!
Thank you for the advice about where to start her at. That is a big help! My concern was that either the workout would be too dificult for her and too taxing, or that I would be a protective spouse and make it too easy for her! But your advice is good medicine! Thanks again!

Rested 1 min - 90 secs between rounds
Pullups were dead hang full stop between reps (last Lynne was not at full ROM due to lasting tendonitis, but the shortened version allowed almost 3x as many reps as my current full ROM pullups)

yesterday completed AF PT test - maxed pushups/situps and run (9:54 indoor 1.5M). Unfortunately, like Coach Glassman, I eat too many carbs (I reeeaally like cookies, pasta, pizza, wine, etc. Which is ok when training for an Ironman, not so much now). So, my waist measurement (haven't seen a 32" waist in a long time) once again kept me from a complete max on the test.

What does the forum think of heavy dumbbell bench presses as a substitute if you do not have a spotter? Much much nicer to work to failure when the weight drops to the side rather than on your chest or neck. Plus the load is much more taxing than pushups, although personally I cannot quite get to my full bodyweight with dumbbells. Nice workout just getting those up off the floor ;-). Would be interested to hear if people think this is an appropriate sub.

Almost all the fighters I train with paint there toe nails for motivation.... I know it sounds weird.. For instance we'll paint our toes pink (I usually paint one of them not all) So when I get up in the morning the first thing I do is go weigh to make sure my wight is on track when I look down at the scale I see my pink toe and it reminds what I'm doing this for (the color being pink steams from an inside joke that lets say should best not be told here)..... Some people do it for no reason but my guys and I usually have a reason behind it.

Just returned from the very moving Department of Defense's Pentagon Hall of Heroes induction ceremony honoring the service and sacrifice of LT Michael Murphy. His name was added to the 3444 previous Congressional Medal of Honor awardees.

I'm sure you will be able to catch a replay of it sometime soon on C-Span; I can assure you it's worthy of your time. Like many have said here at Crossfit, doing Murphs (aka the mile sandwich) will forever be in honor of Murph, and those who went before him.

I think the heavy dumbbells would be a perfectly ok sub if you have no barbell available. If you do have a oly bar though, and you have a little experience, you'd be better off with that.

Like you mentioned, the prob with the db's is, it's hard to get that much weight up into position, and then much of your energy expenditure goes toward stabilizing and controlling the weight, which is fine, but if the idea is to go for the heavy load, Db's kinda defeat that purpose.

On the other hand, if you simply don't feel comfy with getting close to failure with no spotter, and you have flooring that allows you to simply drop the Db's to the floor, then it would work fine.

Great work on finishing the marathon. I've always had respect for anyone who has the sheer endurance and mental willpower to get through that distance. That's a very symbolic personal milestone. I've heard it's very painful in the final miles. The furthest I've ever run is 10 miles, and that's as far as I think these legs were ever intended to go. Great job.

My first Lynne, what a great WOD! I'm still working on improving my efficiency as I am being too deliberate in my reps - still holding over the weightlifting timing on reps. I'm also still getting the hang of kipping motion on pull-ups, but am noticing rapid improvement in my kipping form. Could have used more energy too, didn't eat in four hours, way too long. Next time I plan on blowing through a total of 125.

Comment #185 - Posted by: Geoff at October 23, 2007 10:14 AM

Cynthia, congratulations on finishing the marathon! It's quite an accomplishment and one of those moments that's guaranteed a spot on your life's highlight reel. It's extra satisfying when you combine the training with fundraising for a worthy cause. I'm in the opposite situation, having discovered CrossFit a few weeks before running the Chicago marathon for a second time. I didn't want to start a new fitness program so close to the end of my training, so I waited until after the race. During the last eight miles I was in a world of hurt: dehydration (temp. was pushing 90 that day), heat cramps, dizziness, you name it. Just thinking about all of the inspiring feats I'd seen on the CrossFit site and all of the crazy fast times people post for the WODs helped me push through to the finish in 3:54(PR) and I hadn't even done a single WOD yet! I can't wait to see what a year of CrossFit does to my time. I don't plan on running nearly as much as I used to, but I'm sure I'll shave off at least 30 minutes and hopefully more than that.

One more thing, I highly recommend that you go get a massage to work the knots out of your legs and back. It really helps speed the recovery up.

New experience and a big eye opener for myself; I figured I was getting the hang of this CF after 2.5 months. I could not thank the OPT group enough for letting me join in the fun this weekend. I feel energized and pumped to push myself harder! I would also like to thank LTP for pressuring me into CF; it has been a great transition from Bodybuilding.

Comment #188 - Posted by: KSC at October 23, 2007 10:16 AM

One other thing. I probably should have rested a bit longer between sets. I only rested 2 mins. More rest probably would have resulted in more reps. Next time. Guess I'll do this again on the rest day.

Thanks, Sifton!!

Well I thought for a second that I may want to ease back into the CF WOD's but my pride wouldn't allow it so I went after Lynne today with grand intentions and died after the first round. Seems like the OPT Challenge took the good out of me because my CNS is wacked. Anywho, no numbers worthy of mentioning but here they are:

Bench (191)-9,8,7,6,5
Chins-30,26,17,13,16

Absolutely no gas in the tank for chins, grip died, you name it, should have stayed in bed.

This was my first Lynne. I think this is only the second time (for me) bench has come up for the WOD (other was Linda).

Question: looking at some of the other postings, should I have chosen lower weight to get higher reps? As you can see, I still have a way to go to get to body weight!

opted for different version of Lynne today. max rep bench immediately by max chins with 3 minutes rest between sets. 12,21/9,15/6,11/6,6/4,7
left hand grip died during the third set so could barely hold on for 6 reps. Felt a little impingement in left shoulder(subscap area) during warm up so that may have effected grip strength.

Wouldn't it make more sense to time this wod and subtract the time taken from the total number of reps?

The beauty of crossfit is the time element, which increases the intensity of the workout.

Just a thought...

Kipping is getting a bit smoother, but I still suck at it. My numbers should go up when I get better.


Also, Had to skip the last three day cycle due to travel (spending full days in the car). I did do the Navy PFT on Saturday with the following score:
Push-ups: 85 (2min)
Sit-ups: 100 (2min)
Run: 9:40 (1.5 mile)

Did a short-but-intense freestyle H2H KB session as a topper.

Great to read all of the comments.... My husband found CF - has ordered all of the journals and printed them out. (We even made a table of contents so we can find the article we need...)

As amazing as Speal's 51 pullup set is (and good lord it is), I'm equally impressed by #167 jared's 100 pushup set. Awesome effort gents, and, for that matter, everybody else who's posted today. This community rocks out. Thanks Coach and Lauren, for creating it, and allowing me to breathe in this amazing little world we call Crossfit.

Comment #298 - Posted by: Neags at October 23, 2007 2:16 PM

morning:

warmup felt like a work out, may try more later.

3 rounds: skip 1:00 @180 rpm, 3 mu-60#, pistols +5# 2 left, 2 right

Yesterday I did a little wall climb up & pop over and felt like I strained a muscle in my hip flexor; will keep working on it.

The pistols are coming along well and feel a bit easier with the extra 5# held in front at full extention, more like a back squat now than a front squat and easier to balance.

I reduced the mu assist by another 5# and went to failure on the last set so I will continue with this amount until it feels a lot easier. I really hope to pull off a bodyweight mu by end of March.

just before lunch:

Wanted to do 'Lynne', 5 rounds of max bw bench and pullups but can't do bw bench and no safeties so subbed pushups but should have tried one arm pushups instead, I think.

pushup / pullup / pistol+10#
15 / 12 / 1
15 / 12 / 1
10 / 12 / 1

total pushups + pullups = 40 + 36 = 76

Stoped there with my arms just super tight and getting a CO2 headache.

did this a few days ago. as far as i remember:

PU: 12-10-8-6-6
rested about 1,5-2 min between rounds.
compared to Brendan my BP seems to be pretty good, but my pull-up numbers are desastrous (ok, i am doing them almost without kipping, but nevertheless...).
any ideas how can i improve my pull-ups performance?

Looks like you did a good job on the WOD as it is. The way it's rx'd is to strive to bench your bodyweight. For one person that may be their 10 or even 20 rep max. For another, bodyweight may be their 1rm. So, the weight you choose depends on what you want to accomplish.
If you want to focus on strength, and the ability to recruit a greater number of muscle fibers, then keeping the reps below 10 is great. If you want to focus on muscular endurance and stamina, then you might select a weight that allows for 15-20 reps or more.
I actually really like the way you structured it, where you ramped the weight up, while the reps came down.

#153 Walker-P: Lurk no more my friend. Impressive results. Keep it up. #200 Phil: Rest days are for...resting. If you want and have gas in the tank, add your running after the 3rd day WOD, but if you run on rest days, at some point your body will demand rest in the form of illness or injury. #208, Joe C: there is a site that compiles results for the named WOD's like Fran, Angie. Check the message board. Since OPT and AFT have stopped posting daily, Speal's results consistently lead the way, but look out for RAZE. Ultimately, CF is about improving your own results. You set the standard and then surpass it. #222, Brett the Jet: Higher pullup numbers are almost always kipped. #273, RAZE: Awesome numbers again, particularly 91 pullups @ 245 bw. With a CFT of 1200 you could be on the podium at the CF Games in '08, but more importantly, why aren't you suiting up for someone this Sunday?

If you are talking about this workout you just do your bodyweight (it's not a 1 rep max). If you can do it 50 times do it 50 times. (by the way I would be willing to bet you would get a great "pump" if you could do a single set of 50 reps at 145). You are doing maximum effort whether it takes 2 reps or 50 to get there.

The last few reps of the set were a bit high. I didn't have the nads to correct him at that point, so the fault is entirely mine. You may heap any criticism you have regarding this breach of protocol upon my broad, hairy shoulders, 'cause I can take it.

BP down from last time, though I used 95# bench then, pullups up by 6. Perhaps could have pushed the bench, but really needed chalk to up the pullups...failed due to sweating more than lack of strength or grip. I'm frustrated because on the last Nicole, on my home pullup bar, I managed 30/25/20/20/etc, so I know my pullup numbers are higher than they were today. Next time...

Comment #340 - Posted by: RJF at October 23, 2007 3:30 PM

Wopat,
That's the same thing I was thinking about Raze. 6'6" - 245# and banging out 3 consecutive sets of 20 pullups is pretty impressive. I couldn't do that and I weigh about 177. He's also probably got some fairly long arms as tall as he is, which makes benching a LOT harder. Sounds like linebacker material. I wonder how well some of the NFL elite would perform at kipping pullups.

I'm doing db presses instead of oly bar today.

I use 75# db's... totals 150, which is not far off my body weight of 165#. Db's are a heck of a lot tougher than the oly bar...

I'll let you know how it goes!

It is truly astonishing how many people are doing multiple sets of pullups in the 20-range, not to mention 30's. Incredible work Speal! Unusually hot here in Ensenada, at Life Fitness.

Guys, I did Linda yesterday. I haven't been following the WODs and won't start until after my next two workouts. Problem is I usually just work a day behind but since I took Sunday off I decided to give Lynne a try on Monday.

2.185-13 Pullups-9
3.185-9 Pullups-10

This was my first Lynne now can I ask you guys for a suggestion for a workout to do tonight?

Two oncologist appointments tomorrow. Scared, but optimistic, even excited. I hope to keep you guys updated through this process. I found CF 16 months ago for a reason, and now I know cancer is it.

Looking forward to this weekend's cert in Toronto too!

Got my little brother into this now and he is starting to get hooked. Got a 270 on my last USMC PFT in June, then had an ankle injury so I cannot wait to see how a couple of weeks of CF are going to help my score (11/2 is the next PFT). This is good stuff.

39/m/196#

Only able to complete 4 rds, due to a bout of stupidity: someone placed a barbell on top of the squat-rack/pull-up cage we have (they were doing wide grip behind neck pullups). I foolishly decided to jump in due to gym being packed, and other pull-up bars being used, without removing or securing the bar. In my defence, I did roll it to the back of the cage. Result: in the middle of my 4th set, on my way up, my nose met the barbell, which had rolled forward during my kipping pull-ups, causing a nice laceration (3 or 4 stitches worth) and a broken nose. The good news: my wife thinks that it might cure my snoring. The bad news: I will likely have a nice set of black-eyes and a swollen face for the certification in Toronto this weekend. I won't be my usual photogenic self!

Body weight bench press (subbed 125#) 5,6,7,7,6
Pull-ups 13,11,12,11,11

My max pullup has gone down?? But my BP is better, and I probably could have squeezed out 1 or 2 more reps but chickened out without spotter. I will go heavier next time.

First Post Today - Started 10/15, and doing my best to keep up by scaling. Am hoping to be conditioned to play rugby again this spring (haven't been out there for almost a decade).

What's the deal with the pullups? I'm watching the posted numbers and wondering if I'm the cupcake of the century. Haven't figured out the kipping thing yet, but that can't make too big a difference, can it? Am I going to catch up, or am I just freakishly weenified on this front?

This feels like a message to "Dear Abby"

Comment #501 - Posted by: Broid at October 23, 2007 10:03 PM

Rowing training last night so I got me and the boys to do.....
Deck of cards(with 2 decks)
Rules
Pick a card.
Each suite has a different exercise attached as shown

Cycle 1
Spades – Deadlift 60kg
Clubs – thrusters’ 15kg db
Diamonds – plate swings 20kg
Hearts – pull-ups
Jokers – row 1000m flat out

How does it work?
Simple….
If you pick the 5 of spades then you do 5 deadlifts, go back and pick another card – 10 of hearts = 10 pull-ups.

Each exercise is to be performed as quickly as possible whilst keeping full ROM and good form… NO cheating

Face cards are counted as 15

Aces are 20

You keep going without resting until the pack is finished… then rest 3mins and do cycle 2

Cycle 2
Spades – bench press 60kg/SB piston press 20kgDB
Clubs – powerclean 60kg
Diamonds – DB alternate prone row 15kgDB (both sides=1 rep)
Hearts – upright row 25kg plate
Jokers – 4mins Tabata interval on rower (20 on/10 rest x 8)

Could barely press the dumbbells toward the end. Almost smacked myself in the face twice. Almost dropped the weight on something more private after set 3.

Up the BP to 135# 30 more than the last time. The reps went down by 8 total but the PUs were better. Trying to increase the max weight on all routines from now on.

BP is NOT one of the strong lifts in our house.

reps are BP/pullup:

Never really cared about my bench, but worked it a lot a couple of weeks ago- first time doing it again after starting crossfit and the reps are up quite a lot! Pretty impressed!


Question: Are you allowed to rest between ewercises/rounds? I just started crossfit a couple of weeks ago and I rested, so I'll consider this one "scaled", but I would like to know for future reference..

thanks!

CF'ing alone, so I did pushups instead of BP and because I don't have a pullup yet, I did jumping pullups but paused at the top for a full second so I couldn't cheat by just jumping higher! Please don't laugh. ;-) It's pathetic:

I really need to get some chalk. grip was the limiting factor on pullups especially early on. i just kept slipping off of the bar. probably squeak out a few more reps on bench early, but no spotter made me cautious.

In the video the guy doing the back squats bends his back quite a bit. I do this, too, and thought I might be going too low, but I guess not, because Coach Rip is standing right there.

At 260 lbs pounds body weight, here is my result:
BP: 15, 5, 4, 2, 2
PU: 8, 3, 2, 2, 1
Im a "reformed" powerlifter (raw: 625-450-610) - which accounts for my relatively solid 260lbs bodyweight, but my performance on this was miserable - pathetic to say the least. Anyone know why my reps dropped off so quickly? Is it a lack of muscular endurance? I have been combining CrossFit with a modified PL routine (Westside).

Comment #605 - Posted by: overtime at October 25, 2007 8:46 AM

As a 33yo, 6'2" tall, 200# (208# when I started CFing in June) male, I haven't been able to bench my bodyweight since I was in college at 21 and did the meathead "essential" bench press as part of my weekly chest routine (and even then I only benched 200# once).

I had serious doubts coming into Lynne about how well I'd do, since I haven't done that "essential" exercise since starting and have only just gotten to a level where I can do the WOD without modifying.

Well, CF works. I'm stronger.

BP: 200#

3, 2, 2, 1, 2

Pull-up from dead hang:

13, 10, 8, 7, 7

Those low BP numbers are such an improvement from what I could do before! I didn't think I'd get 200# up. Now to get those pull-up scores up and build some strength endurance...

Why does the info provided in your ionromatifn always appear to be a matter of history? You are offering me info about upcoming Firefox 4.0b7, which you note is delayed until December, while I am now running Firefox 4.0b8. Maybe, there is a difference in the tree matrix and I am on a different limb?
