Comment #3 - Posted by: Shannon 32/F/154 in MD at February 21, 2008 6:37 PM

I'm excited to do this one. I tried 1/2 of "Linda" after doing the hang squat clean 7x3 WOD today. I was gassed after the first two rounds.

Tomorrow (22 Feb) is the anniversary of Josh Hager's death in Ramadi. Marking that occasion last year was one of the most powerful experiences of my tour in Baghdad. I left six weeks later and took my fingers and toes back to my family, swearing I would never take it for granted. I've been marginally sucessful in that regard.

I would have never guessed that things could get so much better in such a short time over there - because of guys like Josh (and with a humble salute to Generals Patreus and Odierno), the US Army can apparently defeat Al Qaeda and the US Congress at the same time. That is 'Army Strong.'

I would like to do Lynne again, but I will be doing Josh instead. Fair winds and following seas Josh, I hope I'm 'earning it.'

Paul

Comment #11 - Posted by: Apolloswabbie at February 21, 2008 6:55 PM

Awesome, been waiting for Lynne to come up again. After I started CF, I didn't use a bench for about 2 months. First time Lynne came around, bench presses felt totally alien. I've been keeping in practice and I can't wait to hit this one again.

Comment #12 - Posted by: Tenacious E at February 21, 2008 7:08 PM

Apolloswabbie:

Aye, Paul.

Tomorrow is an off day for me (and my shoulder prevents all pushing exercises, so no bench). While it will be Saturday before I get to it I will attempt to join you in "Josh".

I met a former Green Beret, leader of an A team in my office today. Quite a guy. Most humble thanks to all who serve and have served.

I was going to say something about the back-up beeps in the video, but I read #11's (Paul's) post and felt rather stupid. Thank you for your words and your service.

Sorry to ask this here, but is using a kettlebell in Fight Gone Bad "cheating." Same weight 75#. Still as Rxd?

Thanks whoever answers this.

Comment #15 - Posted by: Cullen at February 21, 2008 7:11 PM

Time to build those Chesticles! What other reason is there to bench press!?

Comment #16 - Posted by: stalter/m/29/200 at February 21, 2008 7:11 PM

Music reminded me of the Sopranos opening theme song. Anyway, can't wait to attend the running cert in Sept at CF Ocean City in Ocean City, Maryland.

By now its very clear that Brian knows his stuff and the need to improve my running technique is very high. Since running is included in a very high percentage of the CF WOD's and general programming, it is a great wonder why more people are not taking advantage of this great resource.

Comment #17 - Posted by: Steve from Steve's Club at February 21, 2008 7:13 PM

That running training was awesome. I come from a sprinting back ground and when it comes down to the last 100 meters in a 400 meter run maintaining good technique will make or break you. Great video.

Comment #18 - Posted by: theycallmefreak at February 21, 2008 7:13 PM

I love this one!

Comment #19 - Posted by: Dustin at February 21, 2008 7:16 PM

Steve-
I, too, am going to the Cert at CF Ocean City! Yay! I know what you mean, my running can only get better with his guidance, if it got any worse, well, I might as well walk. LOL!
See you there!

Comment #20 - Posted by: Shannon 32/F/154 in MD at February 21, 2008 7:17 PM

Just went back and watched that video. Great stuff. I really need to get this POSE stuff down. I am a cyclist so I used to pulling the high cadence but I have never tried to apply it to running. Time for more training!

Man I love this stuff.

Nursing a slight groin pull, so I've put off the last two days WODs. Glad to see this so I can get back at it. I'm going to try to make the running cert in September as well. Great video. I'm going to work on the wall drill.

Comment #25 - Posted by: DaveB at February 21, 2008 7:25 PM

That was the best running video I've seen so far, really well done and really good info.

Comment #26 - Posted by: gaucoin at February 21, 2008 7:32 PM

I was supposed to do a 5K on my schedule tomorrow, but seeing that the weather here in NoVA is supposed to suck in the morning, this is a perfect opportunity to try Lynne. Sore big time in my chest from my WED workout and the old thighs are kind of feeling it from today already. Oh well, don't want to be a little kitty...

Comment #27 - Posted by: Pesqueso in NoVA at February 21, 2008 7:32 PM

so we are about to start building an outdoor o-course at gsx and the other day they unloaded "The Tire" that we'll be flipping. this think is an absolute monster. don't want to exaggerate but i would say its well over 400lbs. i know its bigger than the one at rippetoe's gym because i've flipped it. i thought anything that big and bad needs a name. so i suggested eve t. you know, short for eva tire.

Comment #28 - Posted by: ken c at February 21, 2008 7:38 PM

guess i'm getting clumsy typing fingers. that should have of course read: thing not think and eva not eve. much apologies.

Comment #34 - Posted by: Skeletor at February 21, 2008 8:04 PM

I have a question about rings. Does anyone know the standard distance between the rings. The ones I'm working out on seem to be too far apart, and it's making it hard for me to keep the rings close to my body on muscle ups. If anyone could answer this it would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

Comment #35 - Posted by: JHOW at February 21, 2008 8:16 PM

In the lecture clip I saw, Coach describes the GHD sit-up as an excercise that can elicit "a brutal ab response...that will put a hurt on you!" Let me tell you..I've been hurtin the past two days thanks to the GHD sit-ups I did on Monday, when I did Annie. Tuesday I was fine, but yesterday and today have been the worst.
It's not the first time I've ever done GHD sit-ups, and I've had plenty of soreness before, but never like this; I basically haven't been able to stand up straight for two days. It's even made sleeping a challenge.

Anybody else had any similar experiences after doing GHD's?

Comment #36 - Posted by: B. Rhaly / CrossFit MS at February 21, 2008 8:17 PM

A huge thank you to our Canadian hosts. Lots of fun and I can not wait to go back!

Comment #41 - Posted by: Apolloswabbie at February 21, 2008 8:38 PM

Awesome video. Best one yet- keep 'em coming! I'm finding whole new ways to run that are much more efficient. Thanks!

#36- My GHD's are done hanging off a bench, so I probably don't get the form like a proper GHD setup. What put the hurt on me a few months ago was the 120 L Pullup workout. 2 days later we had to do some pullups. I jumped up to the bar and pretty much just hung there. Couldn't move. I mentally replayed up all the videos I'd seen on the site of people just not quitting, sucked it up, and got a grand total of 2 feeble pullups before the pain overwhelmed me. First one I haven't been able to do in a long while.

Comment #42 - Posted by: JaHo at February 21, 2008 8:38 PM

kudos to eric, that bastard beat me on this WOD after having only 3 hours of sleep and 7 hard drinks last night. he was hurting badly and still beat me. i have created a monster. i told him that i should just quit crossfit if he beats me today. grrr.

Comment #45 - Posted by: nadia shatila at February 21, 2008 9:21 PM

have you ever read the wikipedia entry on CrossFit?

no luck on the kettlebell vs. bar SDLHP's huh?

I can't find it in the message board...

Comment #46 - Posted by: Cullen at February 21, 2008 9:29 PM

B Rhaly: my problem with GHD sit ups, is in my back. If I go very slow, no problem on the downward part, then explode up. But if I try to move more quickly, or hold my hands higher than my waist, CRANK! right in my lower back. Not sure if it's strength... flexibility... any ideas, anyone?

RE ring spacing: is 50cm the standard competition positioning? I am not sure 50cm is the optimal distance for everyone- I would think you'd want them spaced a certain distance per your shoulder width. No?

Comment #47 - Posted by: Leslie Ap at February 21, 2008 9:30 PM

So...help me out here.
Is it bench then pull ups? or are they both two separate entities?

I used a big word!! Hooray~

Comment #48 - Posted by: Kizer at February 21, 2008 9:34 PM

Comment #49 - Posted by: B. Rhaly / CrossFit MS at February 21, 2008 9:34 PM

What is the best way to safely bench press if you don't have a spotter?

Or maybe, what's the safe way to dump the weight if you can't get it up?

Thanks.

Me and a couple buddies have been at it for about a year at the Ballston Gold's. When you get there ask for Chef and he will show you the ropes. We have Rings, bumper plates, KBs and the works. Obviously we get crazy looks from the regular meats that are in there but who cares. We have our own section that is blocked off to use so we are able to stay out of their way. Go see Chef. Hope to see you up there...

B Rhaly: thanks, I'll look for that video- thanks!

Comment #52 - Posted by: Leslie Ap at February 21, 2008 9:55 PM

Is the idea to get a good time or max reps? I noticed on the demo that the rest time was about 5 minutes between rounds.

Looking forward to this workout. As a law enforcement trainer I really get excited about challenges that test the ability to perform past the the "comfort zone".

Obviously I'm the only one that is completed offend by the picture of the day. If its not a video its a picture. Another man without a shirt on! CF is definately headed into dangerous waters.

I would be completely embarassed if I told someone to check out CF and they're first impression was a picture of a man without a shirt on.

I hope those in charge of posting pictures would carefully rethink what they post. I love crossfit but seeing a man without a shirt has made me seriouly doubt if CF is for me.

That was comment #80 posted by Joro on February 18, 2008 about the interview with Eva T, but reworded for the picture that was posted yesterday. Sounds ridiculous doesn't it? It sounded ridiculous when he posted it about Eva T in a bra too. People need to lighten up.

Comment #55 - Posted by: Mike at February 21, 2008 10:22 PM

#50 Ethan ATX - make sure you don't put collars on to keep the plates in place.. then if you get stuck, you can just tip to one side and let the plates slide off.


Comment #56 - Posted by: Cynthiaj in Sunnyvale, CA at February 21, 2008 10:26 PM

Cynthiaj, Thanks. I'll keep that in mind, though I don't know if I'll get close to my bodyweight. Last time I benched, I could get 135ish. I weigh 158, for reference.

Comment #57 - Posted by: EthanATX at February 21, 2008 10:39 PM

Tokyo, Japan! Anyone in Tokyo doing Crossfit? Would like to meet and workout together if possible. Just starting Crossfit, tough doing it alone, especially when it comes to watching technique.

Wed. was my first WOD and first time doing HSC, i also tacked on about 25 pullups after. My lats and upper back are SORE!

Comment #60 - Posted by: Mike at February 21, 2008 11:43 PM

Re: Ring spacing standards

Point of suspension 5.75 meters above floor
Height of rings 2.75 meters (including about 20 cm landing mats)
Distance between the rings 50 cm
Inside Diameter of the rings 18 cm
Total Diameter of the rings 23.6 cm (Thickness 28 mm)

These standard apply for gymnastics competitions. For those purposes it is wise to adhere to the same standards under practice to insure consistency of feel and response.

For fitness purposes it doesn't matter quite as much, but narrower spacing and/or a lower point of suspension can make a number of moves (particularly muscle ups and crosses) less challenging.

Comment #61 - Posted by: Daner at February 22, 2008 1:16 AM

Used 190 lbs for bench press:
1. 18 BP/21 PU
2. 15 BP/18 PU
3. 11 BP/15 PU
4. 8 BP/14 PU
5. 8 BP/12 PU

After each set I immediately (or as immediately as could get my breath back) knocked out 3-5 more reps just to make myself more miserable. Then I did 30 minutes on the bike.

No disrespect intended, but is a seriously bad idea. If you do that in any gym but your own garage, you or either going to hurt yourself, or the person working out next to you. At the very least you are going to get thrown out of the gym. Please don't do that again. If you can't lift the weight by yourself, go lighter, or (gasp) just ask someone to spot you!

Comment #69 - Posted by: Pat at February 22, 2008 3:00 AM

Quick comment on the video.
That drill is called a "wall drive". Research the work of Loren Seagrave and you will be even more impressed. One thing I would suggest is to have the athlete (client) start with toes up (pointed to the knees). Keeping the toes up will eventually limit or eliminate the heel strike in the sprint.

Cool to see S&Q stuff on the CrossFit site!

Don't have a bench yet and it's raining on the pull-up bar, though we'd be guaranteed an unimpresive and short WOD with this one. Did an inside WU instead.

Touch and go bench with feet flat on floor and butt on bench every rep. A little difficult benching with a feline insisting on laying on my belly. Goals were 15/43 per round. Close on the pullups, but way off on the bench this morning. Hands in good condition; will do kb snatches after work.

Minus 14 reps on the pull-ups. Guess that is what I get for not doing pull-ups all winter. Grip was actually the limiting factor for pull-ups. Bench has been consistent(ly weak!), so next time this turns up I'll try a pacing plan and shoot for 12 reps per set.

First Lynne. Only used 185#. Didn't want to dump the weights in the gym since I never bench. Pull up bar I used was rubber coated and I lost a lot of grip (no chalk).

I DID 10 sets of Dumbell Press, and Incline Dumbell press all sets 75# 15 reps supersetted like always with 30 shrugs on each set. That is about 30,000 lbs of shrugs and i don't know how much db press, but i still hit this one as hard as i could today with much fatigue!

I'd love to help but it's going to be a bit tough with this one. I'm in the Army so my section has laid out a monthly PT program based on the CF model (we use Coach's 5 on 2 rest rotation). Our workout is part of our unit's organized PT @ 0630 so we do it on Ft. Myer (occasionally we go to one of the local tracks if the workout calls for track work).

We don't follow the workout of the day because with 9 guys doing the workout, the gym here can't support it without people standing around waiting for a piece of equipment. We've created our own workouts that use homemade med balls, kettle bells, dumbells, burpees, burpee pull ups, pull ups, tires, slosh pipe and other bodyweight work.

I occasionally do the posted workout of the day on non-duty days, "rest" days or the same day as a regular workout just to get a baseline score.

I know that doesn't help you at all, but if you have easy access on Ft. Myer, and are willing to do it at 0630 maybe we could work something out.

Comment #95 - Posted by: Pesqueso in NoVA at February 22, 2008 5:32 AM

ruggermic// i am right with you, i am a month and a half in and have been doing RX'd Crossfit workouts every morning (6am) there is 1, followed by my own 1hr W/out later at my lunch trying to have some anticipation of the next days Wod, that is real important. Like today i messed up, if you read above. Just in this little amount of time i have gone from 7.5% bf to 3% bf. But most imortantly all weak spots are quickly disapearing and i can feel and control a muscle in almost every part of my body. Regular or even serious weight training has nothing and is nothing what it could be with the inclusion of crossfit training.

I do GHD in small doses because I, too, get a massive ab response (in the area just below the belly button for me). This is one of those that I'm slowly working in so it doesn't break me off two days at a time.

Comment #97 - Posted by: Pesqueso in NoVA at February 22, 2008 5:36 AM

GHD situps can be the most brutal exercise in the gym. I personally think it can cause Rhabdo. faster than anything. This is an incredible exercise but you better get used to doing lots or you are going to be VERY SORE for a week. Being very sore is normal if you did some volume.

Comment #98 - Posted by: DrewCFNC at February 22, 2008 5:45 AM

Comment #47 - Posted by: Leslie Ap at

Leslie, if you have not already do it, check teh three vids on GHD; it is essential to keep legs strait on the GHD up cycle to protect the back.

brhaly - I would opine that it is not cheating to use a KB or bar - as long as you have the mechanics and do the work. It's done w either/or in WODs.

Elusive Pull-ups

After having dabbled in Crossfit and soaking up the free info, I committed this past December and am headed to a cert. next weekend.

Of my many weaknesses is the pull-up. I have made huge strength gains and can pull-up to about eye level but cannot kip. Thankfully the bar is in my basement and no one can see me flopping around like a fool.

A while back I did Nate and 'lo and behold, I was kipping. It still wasn't pretty but I did get my chin over that bar. The next day I practiced again and the kip was gone.
Last night due to bad weather I couldn't get out of the house so I did my own CF style thing.
21-15-9
hang cleans
push ups
kb swings
pull-ups.
'lo and behold...the kip came back!

After reviewing the two work outs I realized the constant was doing the swings just prior to the pull-ups. I had to believe that somehow the two movements correlated. Well imagine my surprise while going through the CF Journal reading material for the cert. I found an article called "Swingers and Kippers" by Tyler Hass, April 2005.
It breaks the two movements down and demonstrates their similarities. Doing the swings before the PU "grooved the moove" for me and I was kipping without thinking about it. It truly was a breakthrough.
Maybe this info could help someone who is having the same troubles.

I would also suggest reading Jeff Marone's article "Kettlebell Basics" CFJ Nov. 2006.

I love CrossFit and I love the journal. It is worth every penny.

Any suggestions on substitutions for Body weight bench press. I have an olympic bar and 45 lb plates and also a pair of 25 lb plates, but I dont have a power rack, spotter, or other means for lifting safely or heavy.

Your thoughts truly appreciated.

Comment #133 - Posted by: mhlane at February 22, 2008 7:22 AM

Apollo: Yes! I notice I was weak in locking out my legs, last Saturday when we had 50 GHD's at HEL. Then, watching the video last night, I see how key that part of the movement is. Will be working on this (carefully) tonight and tomorrow, for sure.

KW, #109: I see what you mean. I have noticed a similarity in the hip movement in the kb swing and in kip. My kips are not very pretty, and I'm only getting my chin past the bar, so far. Tonight, I'll practice some swings before grabbing the bar!

Tonight at HEL we're doing 7x3 thrusters, so I'll likely not get to this. I'm doing an extra heavy day Sunday, so this may be it- unless Coach posts something else really awesome on Sunday!

GHD Sit ups

I posted a few days ago about the first time that I did GHD Sit ups. By the time I got to my third set, I thought that I was going to see pukie. Not because of the body position but because of the work involved. I have not done GHD sit ups in a workout like Annie yet but I believe when a sit up intensive WOD comes up I will hurt for a few days.

I hope this helps.

.... and now its off to the gym to "push against stuff real hard" in order to have nice "chesticles".... an exerpt from the upcoming book, "Coach Rip love stories"

Have Fun, Train Hard,

3. 15BP/15DH pull-ups
4. 15BP/15DH pull-ups
5. 10BP/15DH-pull-ups

Not bad for being out on mission, and coming in and doing this. Not gonna lie, my chest is in pain.....a lot. After this workout i did the Bike, and jump rope each for 15 mins.

To anyone who reads this.

I will be going state side shortly and want to know of any CF facilities in either Charleston,SC or Lynchburg,Va that would allow me to workout for a few weeks.

Thanks.

Amazing. Doing almost no BPs previously and setting a PR 30#'s higher than ever. Absolutely amazing.

I find that if I try to do the PUs fast and don't go down all the way I can do more. I have yet to find the kipping rhythm. I can kip singles but have to reset after each one. Any suggestions other than continue to practice?

Thanks to the Rip program, I increased my bench press by seven reps from last month's Lynne, but my pull-up reps are the same. Maybe I will try and work in some weighted pull-ups now and then to see if that will help raise my reps.

Last time I did 106 trying to max out ever set and had some pretty low numbers in round 4 and 5. This time I tried to set a pace so I held back on the first few rounds. Results were positive.

Bench 13, 13, 12, 10, 7
Pullups 13, 13, 11, 10, 10

Total = 112 (pr!)

PR might just be attributed to strength gains. Next time I'm going to go back to trying to max every round.

took yesterday off cause i had a sinusitis thing and can't really afford to be really sick, so i didn't want to push it. (so i did what i always do -- drank my odwalla superfood and ate at least 2 cups of spinach!) today, its more in my chest, but i feel much better. (thank god for superfood!) i wanted to do a shorter workout today, so i did bullfit's WOD from yesterday that they stole from CF Santa Cruz Central:

5 press (95#/65#)
20 lateral jumps over bar
5 hang squat clean
5 thrusters
5 rounds

w/u: CFWUx2 (-dips), Burgener warmupx3 (broom, 25#, oly)
WOD: sub 55#, i assumed you were to use the same weight for all exercises. 13:20.

okay, first of all, i was dying! either this is exactly like fran, but longer or i really am sick. i had no control over my breathing -- it wasn't till the last i even noticed how all over the place it was. by the end, my presses were push presses and i never did a single full squat clean -- they were all power cleans. i used the big spacer plastic plates on the bar, so my jumps had to be higher, which was truly the easiest part. my wrists were KILLING me by the last thrusters. interesting workout.

on a very bright note -- my pullups in my warmup were ALL REAL! 2x10 and i could have done more. i got 4 kipping in a row and 3 in a row each set, which is awesome. as rx'd helen, here i come!

be safe today my delmarva people, its icy out there!

Me: 41yo/M/5'10"/194lbs

Warm Up: GHD Sit ups, Back Extensions and squats 3 sets 15 reps per set. / Bench Press 135 x 6, 155 x 4, 175 x 2

WOD:

Bench Press 195lbs: 1,1,1,1,2
Kipping Pull Ups: 10,10,10,10,12

You have no idea how exited I am to be able to do this WOD as prescribed. I have never ever been able to bench press my body weight until the last time we did Lynne. I got it twice last time and this time I got it every time and twice on the last set. Next time I do Lynne I want to get 2 every time and 3 on the last set and 15 kipping pullups and 18 on the last set. Thank you crossfit! Thank you coach!

My lady is progressing on the bench press and the pull ups very quickly, great work Lysa!

So, this is the same weight I used last time. I had a friend spotting me instead of my husband, and I told him before I started, "I only did 5 reps on all the presses last time, so be ready." After the first set he said, "WOW! That was some set of 5!" Now I cannot wait until this one comes around again so I can up my weight! Too bad my pull-ups are not much better, but I wanted them to at least be consistent and had to fight for the last two.

When I do a lot of air squats, I think I am developing Quadricep Tendonitis at the top of my knees. Is there any portion of bad squat form that causes stress on the tendon connecting the quadricep and patella that I should be aware of?

50 Singleunders, 25 8# Overhead Wallball Throws, and 15 Pushups for WU.

"Lynne"
BP scaled to 190#
BP: 4-3-3-3-2
PU: 11-10-6-8-6
Total: 56

As usual, grip is the limiting factor on the PU.
I'm happy though, last time BP was at 165. Pullup numbers are better too.

Thanks Coach!

I will definately trythis next outside running day. It's been soo freakin cold here in the NE lately! Normally I would still run outside despite the cold but this year the weather hasn't broken long enough to get the Ice off the sides of the road and running on Ice sucks!

Dadburnit! I did an extra round. Felt really strong at the beginning, and then just TANKED. I'm in my usual state of awe at the amazing performances of OPT, JuanMurphy, MWade, Eric Brandom, and most of all, Kelly Moore. What an incredible idea to think of "gaming" Lynne by ONLY doing 43 in the first round to save yourself for the other rounds, (IF that's what she's doing). At 24Hr. Fitness, Oxnard, CA.

Just got back from the gym, i liked the workout, i added some flys, skull crushers, and back extensions to make it a longer workout though I weigh 165 heres my numbers, oh yea i also switched up my grip for each set of pull-ups.

Damn you Coach G! Smart move yesterday on my part to do some extra pushing and pulling work! I should have known that a massive upper body clobbering was in store for us.

#193 - quadriceps tendonitis - doing squats with correct form should be hitting your glutes and hamstrings more, not as much your quads. The 400m run WILL hit your quads hard, though this depends on form a bit, too. Front squats will hit your quads hard. The central lesson of squat form is: keep the arch in your lumbar curve through the entire ROM. Second, keep your heels on the ground and weight going through heels. This should get the work to your posterior chain instead of quads.

Rory at Camp Hero -- with all due respect, I see nothing wrong with self-spotting on bench press. I do see problems with telling people who are capable of it, not to do the WOD as rx'd, just because they don't have a spotter. And there's certainly nothing wrong with spilling the weights.

Your numbers are impressive, by the way, I noticed several days ago.

Self-spotting on bench press -- if you're not lifting too heavy, I recall from high school I could roll the bar to my hips then stand up. I don't like doing that anymore, and it seems too much work to grip and stand up, plus it's a bit painful rolling somewhere between 225-340 down my rib cage. So I just dump to the side. Never hurt myself, and twice now I've cautioned my wife that I might dump this way and to be aware (only 2 times it was relevant). You can't do this WOD without going to failure. Like all the other lifts we do, it's wise to learn to dump it safely and be prepared.

PU's were kipping. Although I'm not that good at it yet so they were not the best form. I could have gotten to 5 on the last one but the wife was spotting and I exhaled hard in her face, she turned her face and smirked, then I smirked, giggled and dropped bar about 3in onto my chest. She helped get the bar off me and we both had a good laugh. Great workout, good times.

Man, it's been a while since I busted out a full Lynne. May of 2007 looks to be the last time I completed this WOD.

BW-196
BP-12,10,9,8,9
PU-32,29,27,25,24
Total-185, up from 172

Didn't do as many pull ups as I wanted to, but my decline per set was much lower. The least I did last time was 17 so that's a big improvement. Grip always blows out before my motor on these. Bench went way up thanks to all the benching I've been doing over the past 2 months.

The reason why I started CF was because there isnt much rx'd bench press but I did it anyway. Too much crepitus in the shoulders with heavy wieght. Oh well at least I did something besides lay on the couch.

ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

At least you posted your work. I wonder how many people don't post their work because they are afraid of what someone might think of their score. Good job! We all start somewhere. I've only been knocking this out for a couple of months and I've already seen my pathetic pull up #s go up. Stick with it and you'll see that CrossFit is great.

Never underestimate the power of the burpee and the burpee pull up!

This is the second time I've done this workout with 95 pounds. My goal was 10 reps each round on bench and 21 for chinups (an odd number I know ) but for every bench rep that I missed, I had to make it up with the chinups. I should have kept going on the last round, I have no idea why I stopped at 25. haha!

Ok, once again reminded that the bench is not my best lift! I know my long arms are a primary cause, but I'm not sure why they affect my bench more than my pullups.

Bench (225): 4/4/3/2/1*
Pullups: 14/14/10/9/10

*Would have gotten 2 on that last set, but the idiot bodybuilder I asked to spot me started lifting it when it slowed down, screaming "It's all you man!" Aargh >:|

Some impressive numbers!

We have tweaked this one a bit and made a WOD we call Lynnette. Same format but 50% of bodyweight on the standing press. Solves the self-spot issue and is a nice supplement to CFT training.

Tore open a blister on my ring finger during 4th set of pull-ups...really cramped my style. Pretty happy with performance though. Getting better at kipping although I think I may have been able to get a few more on the last three sets. Any ideas on how to prevent my hands from getting torn up?

Yes, I do CrossFit and yes I love it- and I think many of you do CrossFit too, but we never exchange words in the weight room.
PS - I love this fitness community. You all make my day. Every day.

#316 DaveB,

The 'Rip program' I mentioned in my post is from Coach Mark Rippetoe's books, Starting Strength and Practical Programming for Strength Training. (Rippetoe is the bearded guy who was just highlighted in the video the other day on bench pressing.) Rippetoe also coaches and teaches at the CrossFit Basic Barbell Certifications.

The program is basically three days a week working on a few sets of varying combinations of back squats, shoulder presses, deadlifts, bench presses, front squats, and power cleans. Nothing fancy, nothing complicated, but very effective in producing strength gains.

The books can be found in any bookstore, on Amazon.com, and of course, are linked to from the main CrossFit page. Great reads, tons of good info, and a helpful program for getting over plateaus in training - buy them!

Bench has felt crappy lately, but chinups were pretty good.

Sorry if this posts twice, had a curse word in the first one and not sure if it will make it through the filter.

Hurting for time so did a condensed version at home.
Used 1.5 pood one hand shoulder press vice bench press and strict deadhang because door jamb pullup bar at home is a bit scary and am afraid to kip.
Due to no time (less than 10 minutes) did a short warmup followed by:
RHPress/LHPress/PU
8/6/14
6/4/10
4/3/6
Pretty pathetic but better than nothing.

I'm blogging pretty late:

11:23 on the run and squats yesterday. I'm walking like a $2 whore today. Pretty funny to watch.

I weigh 185, but my crossfit partner is 227#, so I agreed to simply do the bench press at 225# tonight.

225 BP: 17, 12, 9, 8, 8 (chest to full extensions)
Body Weight Rows (hanging under a bar): 27, 22, 20, 19, 20

I don't do pullups in this routine for 2 reasons:
1. We do enough pullups
2. Pullups with Bench Pressing pulls the shoulders forward giving the "gorilla" look. So I use the direct anti-movement of the BP, the row, for more balanced development. I simply grab a low lying bar, place my feet up on a seat, and begin pulling my chest to a bar.

WHAT A PUMP!

New to CrossFit - need a little advice.

I can't do anywhere near the # of pullups that some of you guys/gals can (I hover around 10/set). So, I'm wondering if I should use the assisted pull-ups for a while to build-up some more strength. At what point do you think I'd be ready to break free of the assist machine and strictly do body-weight?

I tried a 60" box jump onto a loading dock platform w/ jeans on and missed it by about 1/2" due to my jeans not letting my hips fully up. anyway resulted in 17 stitches in the left leg and 7 in the right. i workouted out here and there b ut i am back now

#365

If you can do 10 per set you don't need to use an assist. Just keep working at them, the numbers will go up. When a workout requires more than you can do in a set, you break the number into chunks that you can do until you hit the required number. Today is max effort per round so the number required is whatever you did. That is your score until the next time you do Lynne and see your improvement that you will have because CrossFit rocks.

AFT and OPT are machines! Freakin' diesel.

Note to self: Maybe this being the second WOD today is a factor? Maybe doing it real late in the p.m. a factor? Bench way down, grip was factor in pull-ups.

This is a huge PR and all because of my pullup numbers. I have really found a groove on the pullups that works well for me and is very efficient. Full extension at the bottom and chin over hands at the top. My hands now look like road kill but I had to keep going. Stoked, really can't believe it myself.

Holy catballs! AFT, outrageous. Kudos to Brent Colson, Eric O, and mhlane. GMA, I realize that AFT and OPT's numbers were unbelievable, until I saw them perform their astonishing feats on videos. Even though you need to protect your anonymity, (btw, thanks for helping innocent victims), you could post a video wearing a mask, and impress the heck out of everyone.

Today was my first crossfit day ever. A few friends from church got me into it. I'm way out of shape right now, as you will be able to tell by my numbers but I guess I can only go up from here.

5/6 @ 115lb
4/8 @ 115lb

Next time around I'm going to do 125lb all the way through, and then hopefully bump up to 135-140lb after that.

Weird pullup-numbers resulted from altering my kipping technique from "classic-kip" to "frog-kip" during the workout. The latter technique worked better on my hanging (and swinging) pullup bar.

disappointed with this, pull-ups were really weak for some reason, but still a slight improvement.

Oh well, it's easy to be weak, but it's hard to be strong.

The pr on the bench may be partially attributed to my losing some weight and getting to use 195# rather than 200#. I still need to work on pull-up endurance.

Comment #579 - Posted by: Spider Chick at February 27, 2008 6:55 PM

oh for goodness sakes. i can be SO blonde sometimes.

on the 4th round, two of my callouses ripped. felt about as delightful as you may expect. so, i climbed a rope instead.

but, by the 5th round, when practically nothing was going to feel any better, i said eff-it, and just did the pullups. when they're already gone, all they can do to complain is hurt. that i can handle.

and a shout out to Russ Greene for being such an effective coach. thank you. again.

on the 4th round, two of my callouses ripped. felt about as delightful as you may expect. so, i climbed a rope 3x instead.

but, by the 5th round, when practically nothing was going to feel any better, i said eff-it, and just did the pullups. when they're already gone, all they can do to complain is hurt. that i can handle.

I was rushing this too much and feeling like I was cheating if I stopped to catch my breath... so PU's suffered and I know I was shooting for a number not a max (like an idiot), but BP's were about where they have been.

Comment #609 - Posted by: Meyer at March 6, 2008 9:51 AM

For some reason, I see my post didn't happen, so as best as I remember

BW 181 "Lynne"
Five rounds for max reps of:
Body weight bench press (subbed 135#): 6,6,5,5,5,
Pull-ups 14,14,13,11,11

I'm well below BW on my bench. I don't do BP's unless part of WOD. My strategy is to treat this WOD as 5 work sets for which I have to do at least 5 reps before moving up. So, next time 140.

BP 5,5,5,5,2
PU 21,17,18,20,13

Last set was rushed with little rest between 4th and 5th sets b/c had to get to work, so may have affected reps. I think I could have done more on my first set, but I didn't have a spotter for that set and didn't want to chance it.
