This looks like a great one. Never good when a new Hero WOD is added though. Gotta hit this one hard in honor of the fallen.

a Squat Clean is simply a clean. Often the clean is called a squat clean to ensure that the full movement is used/performed.
Not a power clean (bar caught in 3/4 squat).

Anchors Away Chief! I pray we can continue to serve and honor the path that you blazed for us all!

While I join everyone else in wishing Godspeed to CPO Carter, I also wanted to point out (assuming the caption is correct) that the man made E-7 by the age of 27...

That should say quite a bit about the man.

Comment #16 - Posted by: AH at December 18, 2007 5:56 PM

Never seen this workout before. May Chief Carter rest in peace, and his family I will be praying for.

Comment #17 - Posted by: Ben at December 18, 2007 5:57 PM

Dang, never like to see these Hero workouts.
Despite that fact...thanks for honoring our Heroes Coach.

Thanks for your service and sacrifice Badger, and thanks to those that serve along with him..

SEAL chief killed in Iraq, Navy says
Staff writer
Posted : Friday Dec 14, 2007 12:03:13 EST

A Virginia-based SEAL who received two Bronze Stars with “V” devices was killed Tuesday in Iraq, according to a Navy release.

Chief Special Warfare Operator Mark Thomas Carter, 27, of Fallbrook, Calif., was killed in enemy action somewhere in Iraq. Carter was with Tactical Development and Evaluation Squadron 2, based in Virginia Beach, Va.

Carter joined the Navy in 1998, according to Navy records, and graduated from Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL school the next year. He was assigned to SEAL Team 3, based at Naval Base Coronado, Calif., then SEAL Team 7.

In April 2004, Carter was assigned to Naval Special Warfare Development Group at Dam Neck, Va., according to information provided by Navy Personnel Command. That group, formerly known as SEAL Team 6, is an ultra-secretive unit that reports to Joint Special Operations Command, which includes Delta Force.

He received his current assignment in July 2006. Carter was selected for chief earlier this year.

“I am honored to serve with and lead men and women like Chief Mark Carter. He was an outstanding SEAL, teammate, and great American,” Carter’s commanding officer, who was not named, said in a statement. “On behalf of my command, I extend my condolences and heartfelt sympathy to his family and friends. His ultimate sacrifice, the most noble act for any American warrior, is our tragic loss, and I urge those who knew him to honor his life, in the best way we know how.”

In addition to his Bronze Star, Carter received a Joint Service Commendation Medal with “V” device, two Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medals, two Combat Action Ribbons, and an Afghanistan Campaign Medal, among other decorations.

“Losing any of the warriors serving in Naval Special Warfare is a significant loss, but losing a chief petty officer makes that loss even tougher,” said Lt. David Luckett, Naval Special Warfare Group 2 spokesman. “Like so many of his brothers in the SEAL community, Chief Carter lived the SEAL Code, and his actions on and off the battlefield embodied everything noble about serving in the Navy and in Naval Special Warfare.”

Carter is survived by his father, mother, three brothers and four sisters.

ALLISON NYC,

LOOK FOR A TRADITIONAL MARTIAL ARTS DOJO THAT DRILLS THE BASICS OF HANDS AND FEET, GROUND FIGHTING AND WEPONS. OFFENSIVE MARTIAL ARTS I THINK ARE SOME OF THE BEST. YOU REALLY WILL LEARN HOW TO FIGHT AND DEFEND. REMEMBER, THE BEST DEFENCE IN DON'T BE THERE. HAVE FUN!

Thank you for the info, it will make digging deep to complete his workout much more meaningful.

Tragic, the need to add yet another HERO workout to the mix. I will be honored to complete it through the pain in his honor.

BADGER, 3, 2, 1, lets get er' done!

Godspeed, and rest easy.

Comment #27 - Posted by: wtp at December 18, 2007 6:16 PM

It's never a good day to see a new "hero" WOD. With humble thanks and a grieving heart, 3-2-1...go.

Comment #28 - Posted by: bingo at December 18, 2007 6:16 PM

badger was one of the most humble, kindest respectable down to earth team guys i've ever met and worked with. he was one of the first people to expose and introduce me to crossfit. i can vividly remember waking up and starting my day off and hearing the rev of the c2 or the slamming of home-made balls or the dragging and pulling of weighted tires...then to see badger sweating his ass off with his earphones plugged in and zoned out. that was over a year ago and seems like yesterday that i just saw him. godspeed bro and thanks for everything. it was an honor and my pleasure to have worked for you and with you...rip and my prayers are with your family and everyone else in tacdevron 2.

Its reassuring to know we still produce and are protected such individuals. If I relied on television and the local newspaper, I may not have ever known about Mr. Carter and his sacrifice. Thank you.

Comment #41 - Posted by: Chris Puckett at December 18, 2007 6:33 PM

This will take me a while, but I'll do every last rep as prescribed. I've never served, and though my heart beats strongest for Special Operations, I will always pray for each and every one of you out there and your families before I go to sleep.

RIP Badger. God bless and keep you and your family.

Couldn't make the gym tonight. Did a home workout. Kept the picture of Navy CPO Carter up on the computer and ripped thru the workout w/ his picture as motivation.

For time,

100 pushups
100 lunges
100 situps
100 squats

11:47

Badger, you did your part. Do not worry - we will hold the line, my friend.

Fitting that this workout is helping to prepare me to ship to BUD/S next winter. I'll put this out for Chief Carter. Secondarily, thanks to crossfit for its service to the military community.

Comment #49 - Posted by: Ned at December 18, 2007 6:52 PM

He looks like such a good guy. That picture makes me so sad.
Not looking forward to any more pullups after Fran today. Augh!.

Comment #50 - Posted by: Shana A. in ATL at December 18, 2007 6:55 PM

Reguarding the Dec 18 pic at the pool. That was me on the deck giving the instructions for the workout at a CrossFit Cert for the SEALS and other Military participants. It was my second trip to the Base in Coronado to do swimming instruction, and this time running technique as well. What an honor to be invited! Those guys kick ass.
Dave Castro was there leading the charge, along with other major CF players Coach Glassman (Check out his sweet new bike), Nichole, Mike From CF Long Beach, Steve from CF Marina, Brian MacKenzie from CF Newport Beach and others.

We came up with this WOD for them:

25 yard swim + 15 kettle bell swings
25 yard swim + 15 Pool pull-outs
5 rounds through for time

The top 5 guys came in between 9:25-9:35

Check out some more pics from the clinic here:

If you want a good "CrossFit Swimming" ass kicking come visit me anytime. :-)

Seeing todays Hero WOD really hit hard after just being at the SEAL epicenter over the weekend.

Kick ass on the Badger WOD people!

ROBERT SUTHERLAND: what does traditional martial arts studio mean? That may sound like a stupid question but it seems like there are million types of martial arts. A few people have suggested krav maga. Do you agree with that? Thanks

Comment #60 - Posted by: colleen at December 18, 2007 7:14 PM

Allison NYC; I had an interesting experiance with krav maga of arizona. Long story short, when they found out that I was an avid crossfitter they told me that they would not accept me as a student. Even though I was only there to learn self defense. My advice( for what its worth) Jeet Kune Do is a very effective self defense method,just make sure that your instructor is not just trying to take your money.

#59 poi dog - What possible reason would the krav maga guys have for not wanting a crossfitter in class? I do Kyuki-Do and judo, and I know my instructor would be THRILLED to have a dojo full of superfit students. In fact, tonight in class he was getting on a lot of people for not working out outside of class.

AllisonNYC, if you find a school you are interested in I would recommend going and just watching a few classes. See if it's an environment you are comfortable with and how the students and instructors interact with one another.

With my whole heart and on behalf of my family, Thank you very much for all that you do. I hate to see that we have another hero wod, but this looks like a real but kicker.

TMOE bombarded me with text messages as I got to the gym tonight to continue my catch up to tell me to stand down on doing multiple WODs again to honor CPO Carter tomorrow by doing Badger. Glad I only did the Shoulder Trifecta, and cut the Deadlifts short!

For the Shoulder Trifecta WOD:
WU
500 meter row - 1:33.6
CFWU 1x
Shoulder Press WU
45#/10, 65#/5, 95#/3
Shoulder Press
135#, 145# fail, 145#, 150# fail, 150#
Push Press
115#, 135#, 155# sloppy, 155#, 165#
Push Jerk
65#, 95#, 115#, 135#, 55# fail on 3rd rep

Cooldown Shoulder Press
95#/5, 95#/8, 45#/12

Started to do 3-3-3-3-3 Deadlifts, but quit after first round because doing DLs at 10:30pm didn't seem like a bright idea with Badger waiting for me tomorrow.

God bless the Carter family, and thank you Officer Carter for making the ultimate sacrifice for all of us.

Squat clean demo can be viewed as a slide show to the right (in the yellow section) of the exercise demos. Just to the right of the Exercise demo videos.
Squat Clean is a full range clean down to the squat position. Most people just do power clean with little or no squatting to the movement.

When a picture is posted like that, it’s like a kick in the guts. There are not enough “thanks” for people like him. I’ll pray that God will welcome him home and comfort and protect his family. Fair winds and following seas, Chief.

Thank you,Mark, for your sacrifice and to all those who serve in the armed forces. You sacrifice so that we can live free.

Rest in Peace our Fallen Soldier. Once a Chief, Always a Chief!!

Here is the poem, "The Watch", it is read normally at retirements (I also think it is important at a sailors death).

The Watch

This sailor has stood the watch
While some of us were in our bunks at night
This sailor stood the watch

While some of us were in school learning our trade
This shipmate stood the watch

Yes.. even before some of us were born into this world
This shipmate stood the watch

In those years when the storm clouds of war were seen brewing on the horizon of history
This shipmate stood the watch

Many times he would cast an eye ashore and see his family standing there
Needing his guidance and help
Needing that hand to hold during those hard times
But he still stood the watch

He stood the watch so that we, our families and
Our fellow countrymen could sleep soundly in safety, Each and every night
Knowing that a sailor stood the watch

Today we are here to say
'Shipmate... the watch stands relieved
Relieved by those You have trained ,Guided, and Lead
Shipmate you stand relieved.. we have the watch..."

"Boatswain..Standby to pipe the side...Shipmate's going Ashore.."

Comment #108 - Posted by: Steve, CA at December 18, 2007 9:57 PM

Allison,

I feel like I'm coming in on the middle of a conversation, but if you're looking to learn self-defense you should be cognizant of the difference between martial arts and combatives.

To learn a martial art, you have to be willing to dedicate the money, attention, and above all time. It may take a while (depending on the art) before you reach the point where you start to become more dangerous to an attacker than you were without training. Martial arts can be very rewarding and beautiful to watch.

Combatives, on the other hand, are disciplines that teach a few simple, effective methods that are not artistic or useful for sport, but help you kick a** if necessary.

I can personally recommend the Unarmed Self-Defense course from Insights Training Center (www.insightstraining.com). (Crossfit connection--I first heard about CF from a friend I met in an Insights shotgun class.) I've taken this class three times, including once with my wife.

Their system was developed in part by one of the developers of the Army Special Forces course, John Holschen. The focus is on being simple and "nondiagnostic"--you never have to think, "Oh, he's throwing a right hook with his left leg forward, I need technique #43."

Comment #109 - Posted by: John Frazer M/41/185# at December 18, 2007 9:58 PM

Allison_NYC- I train at a local KM studio. As a 5'1" female, it's terrific. Much will depend on the quality of your instructor, but that's true everywhere. My chief instructor is heavily focused on technique. In a real Situation, hormones (adrenalin) will kick in and we will use all the power we have - he trains technique so the power is applied on the correct muscle memory pathways.

If you want more info, email me and we can discuss.

First let me start by saying that I am currently in the Navy stationed in Everett WA. I’ve been training up at MT. Baker Crossfit for about 10 months now. I am working towards going to BUDs, and hopefully I will be there sometime this spring. That being said, I feel absolutely honored and privileged to belong to this community that so many of our nations heroes also belong to. To all the US Special operations folks who read this, THANK YOU. I only hope and pray to one day try and do justice to these great guys that gave their lives in service of this country.

Every time we lay a hero to rest I always remember what George Orwell once said.

Thank you Mark for your service to our safety and our country. I'll never agree with war, yet it seems to be something that we have no choice in at times. It'll be an honor to brave through this workout.

Alli NYC, why don't you just make trips up to Tony Blauer's and learn (and eventually teach) his methods? I think it would be great to have a female crossfitter also teaching other women about crossfit methodology and perhaps tactical responses to physical threats. You seem to travel a lot; just a thought.

Fran last night, as Rx'd: 2:20. I sucked wind and almost met Puckie for the next 15 minutes after.

The pullups were great, however I cannot go as far down as Nicole/Eva/Greg, etc. In the thrustuers, I squat as far as I can until I feel the "knives in my hip sockets" and then thrust up.

Anyone know what causes this and how I can gain deeper flexibility in my squats?

Comment #162 - Posted by: Paul at December 19, 2007 5:36 AM

i am new to crossfit and apparently i also can't read. can someone explain if this is a total of 90 reps of squat cleans, 90 pullups and 2400m run?

i thought the fran was 3 rounds of 21, 15 and 9, or a total of 135 pullups and 135 thrusters (which , obvioulsy was unable to complete). looking at some of the impressive times posted, i realized i misread it.

Todd -

[quote]
Complete three rounds for time of:

95 pound Squat clean, 30 reps
30 Pull-ups
Run 800 meters
[/quote]

means do 30 x 95# cleans (full squat), then 30 pull-ups, then run 800m

repeat all three

repeat all three

total is 3 rounds of {cleans, PU, run}

Fran is {thrusters, PU} done in 3 declining-number sets - a set of each 21 times, followed by a set of each 15 times, followed by a set of each 9 times.

Watch the videos (left sidebar; http://www.crossfit.com/cf-info/excercise.html - safe)
and search for "Fran" as an example.


Comment #167 - Posted by: annlee at December 19, 2007 6:04 AM

I will do this with no grumbling or complaining. I don't think Chief Petty Officer Mark Thomas Carter would gripe any.

Whenever you see someone in uniform, whatever branch of the service, always take time to thank them. Sometimes the ones I thank seem a little tired of it, but most of the time it makes their day.

Comment #168 - Posted by: Vaughn at December 19, 2007 6:05 AM

Todd -
Yes, the totals are correct, but you partition the reps as outlined there.

I.e. you do 30 squat cleans, 30 pullups and run 800m, 3 times.

For Fran, you do 21 Thrusters (with 95lbs), 21 pullups, 15 Thrusters, 15 pullups, etc..
i.e. a total of 45 each.


Hope this helps.

When a WOD says:

Does that mean 95 pound squat clean, 30 pullups, 800m (3 exercises one time through).

What a beast of a workout.

43.20

Subbed 800m rows for the runs, but I'm thinking in hindsight 1000m rows would better represent how long it takes me to run 800m when I'm that wiped out. Also, worked the pullups and cleans into co-sets for rounds 2 & 3.

Comment #193 - Posted by: Apolloswabbie at December 19, 2007 7:02 AM

Paul: Wow. I'm watching ever one of the Tony Blauer videos. I got up to the High Gear Drill and it's EXACTLY what I'm looking for. Most times I've been attcked looked exactly like that. It looks like real life self defense. I feel like the kinds of self defense programs I've seen are so choreographed and when it comes to the real thing nothing plays out the same way.

Does Tony teach about group attacks also? I don't know much about how guys fight but based on my experiences being beat up, women fight in packs. One on 5 is not an easy match up and there isn't any option of running away. I think I could handle myself in a one on one fight but it's never happened to me that way probably because I'm able to (and would) walk away in those situations. It would make sense for me to train to defend myself against several people.

Is he only on the West Coast? I would love to train out there but I probably wouldn't be able to go as much as I would need to. Does he have schools closer to me or does he do all of his teaching personally? I need lots of help. I've never hit someone in my life.

It's hard reading through all these comments, my eyes keep welling up. #16 AH said it, not only did Carter put on Chief by 27, he did it in 9 years, and all that time in the teams. He was assigned to DEV GRU and had two bronze stars with Valor devices. This SEAL was amazing. I always find it ironic that the best among us are the ones who volunteer to put themselves between our safety and those who would destroy it. Thank you, all of you who are out there keeping us safe. God bless you Chief, I hope He is welcoming you with open arms.

CPO Carter looks like a guy who absolutely loved what he was doing and couldn't imagine having it any better.

CFWU x 3 (less pull-ups)

Had to view lots of examples of squat cleans, surprisingly from YouTube. None really showed the best technique to perform so many in succession. I just lowered the bar back down close to my body and reset. First time doing squat cleans - worked up a good heart rate and a nice pool of sweat.

41 mins. Broke squat cleans into sets of 5-10 as I couldn't do 30 in a row and needed to make sure I had the right form. Legs were sore from hockey yesterday and Monday.

Jumping pull-ups sub'd for real ones. I need to improve my pull-ups big time.

Good 800m runs.

This was an awesome workout and now I feel great.

#191 Allison NYC -
I've been involved in martial arts for about 14 years and run my own Ju-Jutsu school. I have attended 2 Blauer Tactical courses in the past year, one was the SPEAR Law Enforcement Instructor and the other was Personal Defence Readiness (teaching SPEAR for civilians). The Blauer material is nothing short of groundbreaking. I have had a lot of exposure to many forms of "self defence" but there is absolutely no comparison to Blauer Tactical and the SPEAR System in my opinion. To answer your questions, the courses are held all over the place. The PDR course (for non police/military) is held twice a year, I believe, and the recent ones have been in Albany New York so that shouldn't be too far of a trek for you. More importantly than learning about defence against certain numbers of people or this situation/that situation, they teach real fear management skills, situantional awareness, mindset etc. that has helped me as a police officer but the principles certainly apply to every body.
I would suggest you scour their website, there is a ton of info. on there and/or call/e-mail the company for more info. They are always extremely helpful in my experience.
I hope this helps.

Allison- I would agree with Josh that Tony Blauer is AWESOME! He did a two hour seminar at the Valencia cert earlier this year. I think attending one of his courses is a great idea, Unfortunately, and pay attention all you cops out there, self defense techniques are perishable skills. If you don't train regularly, you will forget them and have wasted all that money you spent to learn them. Take the Blauer courses, but you need to find someone who you can regularly practice with or continue training by joining some martial art system (I am partial to Krav Maga). Good luck.

ALLISON NYC,


KRAV MAGA IS GOOD. FROM SOME EXPERIENCE IT'S BEST TO LEARN CONTROL AND VERY SOLID TECHNIQUES FIRST. OKINAWAN OR JAPANESE BASED KARATE IS ONE OF THE FIRST AND MORE TRADITIONAL MARTIAL ARTS. I STARTED IN MARTIAL ARTS IN HIGH SCHOOL. I'VE COMPETED IN FULL CONTACT TOURNAMENTS AS LATE AS 1996. I CAN SAY WITH CONFIDENCE THAT HAVING A BASIC TRADITIONAL BACK GROUND WILL GIVE YOU A GREAT FOUNDATION TO LEARN AND EXCEL IN OTHER FORMS SUCH AS KRAV MAGA.

I've seen your vids. You don't come off as one to invite trouble. So, ????

If I could, I would learn from Tony. Travel a few times a year with a camcorder to recrod him, and keep up at home with a workout mate. In your case, find a guy friend so that you can get used to a more powerful predator.

Comment #263 - Posted by: Ben CFC at December 19, 2007 10:43 AM

AllisionNYC, in terms of martial arts training, I would say just try out multiple classes at multiple locations and see what you like. I train krav and love it, but it is very much dependent on the instuctors. Honestly, you can call it whatever you want, but if the instruction is good, then that is all that matters. Personally, the traditional route of martial arts was not what I was looking for. My krav classes are very intense and we do a decent amount of multiple attacker sparring as well as a bunch of other things. I have trained at other krav places that are not nearly as intense. I forced my friend who trained karate for 3 years to try out a class at our place, and he was hooked. Again, that has a lot to do with the instruction he got from his karate place and the instruction at my krav place.

Also, we have a couple of crossfiters at the school as well, so there really isn't an issue with that.

Couldn't bring myself to modify or sub anything about this WOD. Otherwise, its not Badger. Wouldn't do him any justice either if I did. Full, FULL squat cleans; chin over the bar/dead hang kipping pull ups; 800m run...which was the worst part of the WOD for me at least. Anytime I felt like I couldn't continue or needed to rest, I thought of why I was doing this workout to begin with...

Comment #267 - Posted by: Pat & Thomi, CrossFit Virginia Beach at December 19, 2007 10:47 AM

Allison - the particular art isn't necessarily what's important (although you'll hear a lot of argument on that) - I teach at a jujitsu school in Manchester, CT, if you want to make the drive for some free training. We have a lot of police (MA & CT) as students. IMO, Tony Blauer does great stuff, Krav is fine, but it really depends upon the individual school and instructor. Go watch a few classes and the interaction b/w students and instructors. Finally, nobody has yet designed the "magic formula" for fighting multiple attackers (except in the movies). I was once a bouncer and I've seen my share of fights and brawls, solo and multiple bodies everywhere. It's all playtime until you're jumped by 3 or 4 guys - don't get there.

On Mark Carter - does anyone know if he was an 18D or had medical training? If so, I think I might know him. I hope not.

I hate seeing another hero workout. DevGroup's young men are legit, as are all the warriors in the specops community. RIP, Chief.

Comment #268 - Posted by: Dale_Saran at December 19, 2007 10:48 AM

Hello AllisonNYC

If you are looking to mearly protect yourself in a situation then I would forget looking towards the Martial Arts if you want a usable product in a short time. As already had been said I would look towards the combatives. What ever you learn should be very basic gross skills and then sessions should have a heavy emphasis on your mindset or attitude. Look for a system that works on the following principles in this order, MINDSET, TACTICS, SKILLS, KIT. Main stream Martial Arts tend to lean towards working mainly on skills during a session. But from my own experience it's all about mindset. I have seen more than one black belt get beated but the street rat that had never had any formal training but had loads of attitude.
Look also towards the instructor and try and find out what their background is. Have they ever been in a combative situation??
I may come under some flak for my opinions however it is only one opinion. but based on the following experience of having trained in traditional martial arts, unarmed combat instructor in the British Army, Combative/Krav Maga Instrutor and also being a Police Instructor in London. I have been in enough situations to know what works and its always very basic and not fancy.
If you find a club that also pressure tests its syllabus it will be worth it's weight in gold. The SPEAR system is not a bad place to start if you can get on a course. Some of the SPEAR system has been incorporated into our Officer Safety program. Nick Hughs from F.I.S.T is worth looking up on google and so is SHIVWORKS.
You can check out a brief look at some of the pressure testing we have done with the civilian guys at one of our private sessions in Liverpool. Put Personal Defense Solutions in youtube.
But whatever you go for you should be able to see some results after 6 hours of training or I would look else where.

My 2 pence worth

I forgot to say you must check out these DVD's. Jim Glover's Combatives 1,2+3 you can get them from Paladin Press. Probably the best instrutional DVD's on the subject to date!!

I was really ticked, I wanted to hit this hard to honor a fallen soldier and instead I ended up dodging people for equipment and having to sub rows for running on the first two rounds. Time is over what it would have been because I was running around looking for something to sub for running because I was not expecting to have to sub. Started to elipitcal, freaking hate that machine, got on bike, didn't know what ratio was, then got on rower and did 1:1. People got in way while doing cleans...overall crappy day. Made it worse knowing I was trying to go extra hard.

Thank you CPO Carter.

a few thoughts: this is a brutal WOD, but anything over 45 minutes (for me) should be a strong indication that a rest week is in order.

I did Krav maga while I was in Austin and found it to be a fantastic system. No bull about it, got right to the point and provided effective. If you have questions about it I'm sure you can pop off an e-mail or PM to Jeff Martin as Brand X is a Krav Maga center. Oh ya, my KM center was also a Crossfit affiliate so I got to have all kinds of fun there :)

Went to balistic missile school at Dam Neck (1976-1977). It was rumored that the SEALs from Little Creek used to practice on the Marines who guarded Dam Neck. Same rumor had it that the SEALs almost always won.

Holy shit. I applaud anyone who finished this WOD as Rx'd.
I am a trapeze artist who followed the typical BB workout to a degree I believed "hard core." SO when I started crossfit in November, I thought it would only be a mild increase in challenge.... Boy am I an idiot. Couldn't have been more wrong.
Thank you CrossFit for showing me how wrong I was. I clearly was not ready for a "Hero."
Had to modify quite a bit:

1stRound
65# Squat Clean 30 Reps
15 Pull Ups
400 Meter Run/Walk

2nd & 3rd
65# Squat Clean 15 Reps
15 Pull Ups
400 Meter Run/Walk

Time=33:19

PS: Meeting Pukie almost every day [especially those with running] and I wonder if I can do anything to prevent that. I eat [usually grits], drink a protein shake and take ginger prior to WOD. Any suggestions?

Allow me to extend my condolences and heartfelt sympathy to Mark's family and friends. Also, rest easy Badger.

All cleans were full squat cleans returned to floor each rep. Sets were broken miserably. Runs were on Treadmill. Wanted to break 30 minutes going in but when the first round took 10 minutes I knew I needed to re-adjust my goals. After the second round of 12 minutes I did everything I could to keep it inside of 35 minutes total and just pulled it off. Great work-out, but my legs are toast.

Post – Clean up my equipment and leave the gym while I could still walk.

I think Bingo said it best. It's hard to see another hero workout added to the list - the heart aches.

I have been resting the upper body for an injury, but felt the need to do this workout today. If nothing else than to physcially acknowledge this soldier's sacrifice. Although it was scaled, the intent and spirit was there. Unfortunately, I was too busy thinking about Chief Carter that I forgot to start my watch.

3 rounds:

35 lb Squat Cleans
30 Pullups with 50# assist

Rest in peace, Chief. May your family and friends find some peace and comfort.

the Badger will be called the "LOLA" from now on to me. This workout is in honor of Chief Peety Officer Mark Carter and my daughter. She was just diagnoised this week with Type I Diabetes and she is the bravest little 7 y/o ever. She accepts her injections and finger pricks like a true hero. How do you tell a 7 y/o girl that still plays imagination games that for the rest of her life her days are going to consist of needles and injections.

Normally I would simply come in and state my times, stats, and any modifications or substitutions I had to make, and be done. Today is different. Today was my first experience with a workout done in tribute of a fallen Hero. I knew going in that this was going to be the toughest work out I have done with Crossfit so far and possibly the hardest I’ve ever done in my life. Battling “pukie”, and struggling to finish seemed like a mild inconvenience or perhaps even a welcome part of the undertaking in light of the sacrifice of the Warrior who I was honoring. Thank you Chief Carter. Your sacrifice will not be forgotten. Thank you for standing in the breach for me. Rest In Peace.

wod "Badger" 3 rnds:
95# squat clean 30reps(sub 65# 20reps)
pull ups 30reps (sub 20reps)
800m

38:38

Worked on getting good squat clean technique, full squat, high elbow rack -reset grip and posture for each rep. Technique was pretty good in the 2nd and 3rd rnds.

I widened my grip on the pull ups(for the first time) and that seemed to make pullups a lot easier. I should have done 30 reps on the pull ups.

May CPO Carter rest in peace and may some comfort be added to his family, friends, and loved ones. I stand in awe of these Navy SEALs; God bless them all.

I've worked out little for about 12 weeks due to a bad shoulder injury and just started back up seriously several days ago, so my time was far slower than I was used to and than Carter's honor deserved, but in his memory, I gave it my all and thought of him the entire time - 45:49 min.

Does anyone know how he died? How it happened? I started and finished Navy SEAL Chief Petty Officer Luttrel's book in less that 24 hrs. this weekend. What men these are!

God bless our soldiers, sailers, Marines, airman, coasties, cops, firefighters, and EMS personnel.

Thank you, Mark; it is a sad honor to do this WOD today.

but at least i did it as rx'd
it tore me down...in that good way.

I see some posts about self defense. has anyone heard of f.i.g.h.t.?

it uses gross motor movements as opposed to fine motor skills. so it's relatively easy to learn. i enjoy the classes.
here is the website. you can see if there are classes in your area.

The first round of squats and run I didn't clock cause the button wasn't hit on my stop watch. But the pull ups and the next two rounds were at 40 minutes. Not the greatest but I tried. Can't wait for summer!

Comment #406 - Posted by: runamucka at December 19, 2007 4:18 PM

Allison NYC,
In my opinion, I don't believe looking to a martial art for protection from recurring attacks by multiple women is the answer. From my experience, those types of attacks are very rarely unprovoked (I may be wrong). I would take a longer look at what I may be doing to cause these women to continue to jump on my ass. Find that issue, correct it and you should be a lot safer!

Rest In Peace Chief Carter, your sacrifice was not in vain.

I remember just a little over a year ago was the first time I looked at this website and thought to myself, what a great group of people. I am impressed with this group more and more every day. The support for a fallen hero, the support for each other sometimes just overwhelms me and makes me just a tad on the sappy side for how lucky I feel to be a part of this. I spent some time reading a bit of info on Chief Carter today and I must say I feel this is a well deserved addition to the named wod's. Seemed like a hell of a good guy that many greatly respected and will always be touched by knowing him.

With that said:
34:24 and a hell of a good work out (65lb sc)

Have a great day everyone, and thanks again for what you gave Chief

Comment #420 - Posted by: Anthony Utah at December 19, 2007 4:48 PM

"Badger"
We did a slightly different version because of limited time and barbells.

Groups of 3 people. 1 person cleaned and 1 person did pull-ups until the runner finished 800 m then we rotated.. each did as many reps as possible in that time so all did different amounts of cleans and pull-ups. We only did 2 rounds.

I did:
Round 1:
Cleans: 40
Pull-ups: 45
Run around city block: 5:28

Round 2:
Cleans: someone changed the weight on my bar and didn't put it back so it took away 30 seconds for me to reload the bar. Got in 35
Pull-ups: 49 in sets of 5
Run: 5:57 I felt like I was moving as fast as I could but my legs felt like a ton of bricks. Good thing is my cardio wasn't the limiting factor.

Made up the cleans when I came back to get to 90 total. 94 total pull-ups.

My hands were bleeding like crazy. I have 14 blisters/callouses on my poor hands and 5 of them are torn wide open. I pushed through those pull-ups because of the workout. Just kept jamming chalk in there.

I don't think torn hands are cool. I think they're an injury and it's going to cost me time off the bar.

Gave it my all for Mark Carter.

okay its time for me to brag a bit... not about me, mind you. no, no. i was awful today. didn't finish -- only second time that happened. not because i was beaten by the workout, but by the clock. i was on pace for about 45'.

now, onto the bragging! i finally got my boyfriend to try a crossfit workout. he did fran today in 3:52! and then, for lunch he did badger in 32ish. can you freakin' believe it?! i am so proud of him and he's so happy to finally get me off his back about trying CF! ;-)

i really hope that he decides to stick with crossfit. its practically made for him. it used to take him 3 hours a day or more to get what CF will do for him in 1/3 the time.

This was as TOUGH as I imagine it's namesake was.

45:15, with 10/20 kipping and jumping PU's each round (broken like crazy), power cleans (my groin said "enough!" during wu's...guess I pushed it too hard with lunges and "Fran." The running, normally my weak point, was harder than usual, keeping me @ 5mph with 1% incline throughout. 153 average HR. This tested my grip, as well.

I started with the idea of doing the routine as rx'd
That idea faded quickly.

I did 3 sets of 20 reps of 95lbs squat cleans and 3 sets of 20 reps of chin ups along with 3 sets of 500 meter run.

All sets were broken, except the run.

I was expecting this to be worse after hearing the rugby guys whine about it. Don't get me wrong, it was an ass-kicker, but the pain leveled out after the first batch of cleans and just stayed the same all the way through. Broken finger is NOT happy though.

Took a couple minutes off my finish time because I had to walk through my gym to get outside (got in trouble for running a few weeks ago). I charged through this one, not letting myself rest for too long. Never comfortable during the whole workout, and almost threw up at the end of it. Hooyah Chief Carter!

Hooyah to Chief Carter!

Celebrate the life and the victories that he obviously had. He touched many lives from the posts on today's blogs.

I tried to do the full three rounds as Rx'd. It is a little hard to move 315 lbs plus the other weight. I used to love squat cleans.

I ended up doing three rounds of the 800m run (need to lose some weight). I know that some will argue with me that it would be better to do three rounds of all of the exercises. Yet, I only did two rounds of the following:

30 reps pullups
30 reps dips
30 reps knees to elbows
30 reps hang squat cleans.

Finished in 45 minutes. Subbed the elliptical for the treadmill.

The BADGER kicked my tail!

You and your son will be in our prayers.

95 lbs was really pushing my body's limits with this many reps, but I sucked it up and did it as Rx'd in honor of CPO Mark Carter.

I want to say "Thank You!" to the Crossfit community, not only for being so respectful toward our men in uniform, but for pushing each other physically in such a positive manner. I don't think I would have had the mental toughness to finish this one if it weren't for all the other people saying how they were able to stick through it. This is truly a great community!

Anyway: "Badger"
1st Round: 12:19
2nd Round: 16:59
3rd Round: 16:53

Total: 46:11 Had figured on 40-45 minutes going in... cleans were killer, and had no energy left for the runs.

Nice workout. Here's to hoping coach takes it just a little easier on us tomorrow :-P Legs still hurting from 400m lunges!

3 rounds:
50# squat cleans, 30 reps
jumping pullups, 30 reps
row 800 meters
38:29

Actually thought this one was going to take an hour, so I'm pretty pleased. I'm so bad at cleans, though. It seems like my HR zooms to 200 after just a couple reps. The cleans were the time sink today, so next time will be better.

Thanks for the killer, coach!

"Badger"

Complete three rounds for time of:

95 pound Squat clean, 30 reps (subbed 85# hang squat clean)
30 Pull-ups (broke 10-10-10; 8-8-7-7, 8-8-7-7)
Run 800 meters (subbed 1000 m row)


Still trying to get cleans, so did from the hang position. Concentrated on the hip drive, which then triggers quick elbow drive. The weak link in the cleans tonight, or at least the limiting factor, was my grip, after the first set of cleans. I was having to rest solely to allow my hands to hold the bar.

o man, i knew this one wuz gonna be a suckfest... but because itz for a hero, i felt compelled to make it suck worse by choosing the weight right in the middle between the men's and women's rx'd weights. holy crap!..wuz i wishing i hadn't decided on that by the start of the 2nd round! then as i wuz finishin the rnd 2 800, some guy almost took the bar i wuz using. had to take a half minute to re-clip the plates he had removed. sorry dude for makin ya wait (watchin me gaspin like a beached fish) till i finished another 30 reps of full squat cleans - it wuz in honor of a hero who made the ultimate sacrifice; u were a bit peeved, but i believe that if i had had teh breath and energy to explain it to u, you would have understood.

Hotel gym, no barbell, substituted 50lb dumbbell cleans (15 each hand), otherwise as rx'd. Think I managed to mess up my hamstring on the very fatigued last 800m run, so we'll see how the 5k goes tomorrow.

Like everybody else, I hope we have enough hero WODs for a while. I've been thinking about Mark Carter all day and how a 27 year old guy devotes that much of his life to his country in such an exemplary manner. I hope my kids are that selfless and mature and honorable when they grow up.

Comment #511 - Posted by: dcostolo at December 19, 2007 9:20 PM

What a great community. This WOD like the other Hero WODS push me. Today was a real first for me after 6 weeks of CF I finally got the KIP. Still a little sloppy looking, I am sure not unlike when a new born horse walks, but soon I know I will be galloping.

For the WOD I did 10 kips per round, then jumping. I also scaled the weight to 75# as per Brand X scale recommendation.

Did this brutal WOD in 35:44.

I think that i am close to making the decision to start doing some of the WODS as rx'd instead of scaling. Trying to get over is it about the time, or about getting more run over?

Any comments from experienced CrossFitters is welcome, especially if you recall how you decided to move to as rx'd.

Thank you Chief Carter

This was one of the most difficult workouts for me. It is almost equal to Linda in the way that I felt during and after. It was great to know a little bit about this hero prior to doing the WOD because at the times I felt like I was going to quit it gave me motivation to continue. God bless our troops!

It's always sad to see a new hero WOD, because it means another great man is gone.

Unfortunately, I was unable to finish. I had scaled it to 400m, 15 power cleans@35 lbs, 15 jumping pullups. I finished the second round of power cleans and then dropped the bar on the top of my foot on accident from mid-thigh height. I tried to walk it off, but when I started trying to figure out whether I'd broken it or not, I called the workout. Bummer. 11:30 for what I did finish. Can't wait to do this one all the way through.

I have a pretty impressive bruise now! I have resolved to always put at least a little weight on the bar so that I can't drop the damn bar on my foot again! Hmph!

(Bumped yesterday's Fran to Friday. It was raining, the walking lunges absolutely brutalized my legs, and I'm fighting off the cooties. Felt like crap today, but got off the couch anyway. Legs still sore. 2nd & 3rd rounds of cleans ended up hang power cleans - sort of).

I went ahead and smacked myself in the back of the head for that performance.

The gym's cleaning lady was a distraction as she tried to clean around me while I was doing squat cleans on round 3. Regardless, we are both already feeling the effects of Badger. That was one bad ass workout worthy of honoring one bad ass American.

RIP CPO Carter.

Whew! Swift kick in the rear! Did this one last night. I had to downgrade to 20 & 20 since it was taking too long. I'm out of shape with my pullups to begin with, and this was 2 days in a row of it. I also downgraded the rounds down to 2. Either I have a lot more getting-in-shape to do or maybe I just need to spend 5 minutes warming up on the bike or treadmill or something next time.

Paul: Wow. I'm watching ever one of the Tony Blauer videos. I got up to the High Gear Drill and it's EXACTLY what I'm looking for. Most times I've been attcked looked exactly like that. It looks like real life self defense. I feel like the kinds of self defense programs I've seen are so choreographed and when it comes to the real thing nothing plays out the same way.

Does Tony teach about group attacks also? I don't know much about how guys fight but based on my experiences being beat up, women fight in packs. One on 5 is not an easy match up and there isn't any option of running away. I think I could handle myself in a one on one fight but it's never happened to me that way probably because I'm able to (and would) walk away in those situations. It would make sense for me to train to defend myself against several people.

Is he only on the West Coast? I would love to train out there but I probably wouldn't be able to go as much as I would need to. Does he have schools closer to me or does he do all of his teaching personally? I need lots of help. I've never hit someone in my life.

Hey Allison,I’m new to Crossfit (love it, just got my level one!) and was introduced to it through Tony Blauer. I’m a female PDR (Personal Defense Readiness) Coach with Blauer Tactical Systems (blauertactical.com) and have been teaching self-defense and traditional martial arts for nearly 20 years. However, in response to struggling with the inadequacies of traditional martial art techniques in regards to real world self-defense, I’ve been exclusively teaching Coach Blauer’s S.P.E.A.R. system for the last 5 years.
Allison you really hit the nail on the head when you said his drills look like real life situations. Coach Blauer’s system is based on human behavior and physiology and backed by scientific research. Other systems are based on a series of moves or complicated fine motor skills, which you know from your experiences, mean s**t when someone is choking and/or punching you in the face repetitively. Liken it to trying to text a message on your phone after you just finished your best time ever with “Fran”! You are not going to access those fine motor-typing skills very easily.
The S.P.E.A.R. system takes into to account that humans, when engaged in close quarter combat, will need more than just a physical move to survive. They will need a way to manage their fear (emotions), and they will need a “blueprint” (psychological) to draw on in response to the level of violence that comes with an ambush. Without those emotional and psychological components, most people will never get to the physical moves that they practiced.
The use of the High Gear suit allows us to train at speed and maintain the necessary components of real life scenarios. It is the most realistic simulation training gear available.
Paraphrasing Coach Glassman; You don’t need formal training to perform functional movement. Paraphrasing Coach Blauer; more people defend themselves everyday without training then people with training. Since we are all human, we will all respond similarly in any given situation, whether it be picking your child up out of danger or kicking a bad guy’s butt, we don’t think about where to place our hands to lift properly or how to breath properly, we just do it in that moment of intensity. However, with that being said, training that is based off of those natural behaviors and physiology, is priceless.
Look forward to training with you in both Crossfit and PDR.

Did this today after work. Not really feeling it, but slogged through anyhow. Broke the last 2 sets up 10/10 x3 with the cleans and pulls.

Had to break during the first set of cleans to give a trainer at the gym some pointers on doing bar muscle-ups. So I put in about 6 muscle-ups, too. It took me about 6 months to teach myself how to do it (jumping, then kipping), so I told him to keep working those for a while.

No WOD due to ruptured Achilles.

Did light ab work using 20lb med ball.

Not as rxd

still a day behind and stuck working late

Did the squat cleans and pull ups but no run.

3 rounds, 30 reps each... 28.30

This is the first time doing squat cleans, i can see how it will help in other clean exercises.

55min

subbed 45lb bar
jumping pullup (negatives)
treadmill 2.0 incline (stopped each 400m for one min rest) barefoot

I only kept gone because everyone else sucked it up and I'm glad I did as always...this was crazy!! But, if we did these workout types everyday I'd be forced to zone - I thought I was going to puke up bad-carb-food I ate last week!

Yeah Badger!

What a day this one was. It is my one year mark on crossfit. I weighed over 200 pounds when I started. I credit loosing 70 pounds to this program.
Plus I have gained a new look on life and how to achieve life goals on account of these workouts.
To put it simple finish what you started.
I also like to say thank you to all the soldiers that live to die for our freedom. You all are in my prayers.

Comment #641 - Posted by: nancy at December 21, 2007 7:44 AM

So, I gave the 6am group a choice this morning...

Murph or Badger? The smiles quickly disappeared from the faces of those who knew. Badger it was! I finished in just over 40 min as Rx'ed and was proud to say that every clean was a full off the floor, full squat in the rack, stand up rep. Although the time could use some work.

Our visitor from Primal got it done in 46 (Nice job Leah and great meeting you)! John finished in 43. Both used 65# for cleans and John used 1.5 bands for the pull-ups.

Thank you Mark Carter. God speed.

I'm ashamed to say I stopped after 2 rounds. What an incredible workout! Squat cleans were 95# broken into sets of 10 and 5. Pullups were all kipping broken into sets of 10 and 5 also. Ran on treadmill at 1% grade, 1st round was at 7.0 dropped to 6.5. Second round started at 6.5 finished at 5.7. Thought I was literally gonna passout also. Just about met puckie. I'm pretty disapointed in my effort. Thank you for your sacrifice Chief Petty Officer Carter and his family.

Was the 3rd WOd of the day- was catching up after much Holiday partying- completed Fran and weighted pull ups before 9:00 then knocked out the Badger at 2:00 p.m.- rough day and feeling the 400 meter lunges.

Approximate time was 52 minutes.

I lost my iPod while running on the treadmill. it took me about ten minutes to finally find it. I had to take the treadmill apart and locate it beside the motor.

BW 130 (still too many cookies)

51:16 with 65# full squat cleans, split jerks. Pullups were horrible after the cleans, and the runs were outside. This may go down in history as one of my hardest workouts ever.

Comment #721 - Posted by: Sarah at December 31, 2007 1:11 PM

Oops. Did clean and Jerk, only supposed to do cleans. Well, no wonder it took me ten to fifteen minutes longer than I thought it would...

Comment #722 - Posted by: Sarah at December 31, 2007 1:14 PM

29:12 (performed on 31 DEC)

The run was a little short. We are currently deployed and two laps around our makeshift track is about 700 meters-ish. Other than that, full squat cleans with 95lbs and full kips with straight arms to chin over the bar. My time was descent because cleans and pull ups are my two strongest exercises, runs not so much.

Godspeed Chief

Ouch.

as rx, sub fast walk for run. Never thought I'd think of an 800 meter sprint as a rest phase, but this one did it to me.

lost the time when original post was eaten 2 weeks ago.

half of 800 meter was uphill

Comment #731 - Posted by: mwf at January 11, 2008 10:20 AM

partially done.
On second round stopped at 10 PU's. Ran out of time. Not a good day, tired from yesterday where I combined 2 WOD.
Sub'ed 800m row and did PU's on gravitron.

I wish I could have ran faster but my legs were so stiff! I loved this workout because I hated it! I think that I am "in condition," but I get a rude awakening everytime I do a cross fit work-out.

certainly not the greatest time, but this workout was grueling. after weeks of 5 min wods, hard to break out this one.

Tought but great workout! My wife and two kids did it too. Running and pullups were fine, but the squat cleans did me in....needed a lot of rest between breaking up sets.

Comment #750 - Posted by: Mysticlyd at July 22, 2011 9:58 AM

I gave it everything I had: I did 3 rounds of 30 Squat Clean at 65#, 30 Pull Ups, 800m run in 37:55. I changed from cleans to straight front squats for the last two rounds and from 65# to 45#, used rubber bands to finish my pull up reps which I broke into sets of 10 x3 for each 30, and threw up a little at the beginning of my last 800m. That was for you Badger! And I dedicate my 'No Shave Nov.' beard to you as well good sir! Here is to our fallen, they shall not be forgotten! I miss you Papa!
