Holy Lord. I can't even do a single 135lb C&J with both arms.

Comment #1 - Posted by: BC at November 26, 2008 6:09 PM

Great work, Jesse. I'd like to attempt a 1 arm Isabel. Perhaps with 95 lbs.

Comment #2 - Posted by: mini t at November 26, 2008 6:09 PM

whaaaat! That video was rad.

Comment #3 - Posted by: AllisonNYC at November 26, 2008 6:10 PM

workout just had to be something that i need to go to the gym for didn't it...but it's cloooosssseed!!!

NOOOOOOOOO!! =(

Comment #4 - Posted by: Eric Gohl at November 26, 2008 6:11 PM

Shoot I knew I should have bought some weights for use at home. The gym will be closed for this due to Thanksgiving. Can anyone think of something to KB swing that would be close to 2 pood that people might have on hand? Maybe I'll have to save it for Friday.

Comment #5 - Posted by: Reagan at November 26, 2008 6:11 PM

Knowing how much effort goes into a normal "Grace" with two arms, I just watched that video with absolute amazement! A very productive application of force!

Comment #6 - Posted by: Steve - CF Ocean City at November 26, 2008 6:11 PM

That one-armed grace is SICK!

God Bless CPO Nate Hardy's family. RIP brother.

Happy Thanksgiving!

3,2,1...

Comment #7 - Posted by: Iron Major at November 26, 2008 6:12 PM

I love this workout! I like to add in 4 burpees too for every set. Makes it so much more difficult.

Comment #8 - Posted by: Tisko at November 26, 2008 6:13 PM

One armed Grace. I like it! Not sure if I can perform a one armed 135# C&J, but I can't wait to try.

Comment #9 - Posted by: freddy c._one world at November 26, 2008 6:15 PM

#6 Yeah I was hoping for a non-gym workout as well. Everything is closed tomorrow.

Looks like I'll be rigging the rings off of my apartment complex once again...and need to think of a sub for KB swings

Comment #10 - Posted by: alex_bragg at November 26, 2008 6:20 PM

Wow! A pretty brutal week!

Comment #11 - Posted by: Kevin Wood - CrossFit Moncton (27/m/173#/6'3) at November 26, 2008 6:23 PM

wow. that performance was nutz! strong work. he made the cleans look easy!

Comment #12 - Posted by: cleverhandz at November 26, 2008 6:24 PM

Yes in Ref to #13 yes it has been a brutal week. Must be because of all the Turkey about to be eaten. Can't wait to try out the new 2 pod, been eyeing it and it seems to scream pain. 3-2-1 Go

Comment #13 - Posted by: Swany at November 26, 2008 6:30 PM

Pure awesome-ness.

Comment #14 - Posted by: Kstar at November 26, 2008 6:33 PM

New to crossfit...the workouts are amazing...does anyone have a sub for the muscleups?

thanks for the great workouts and the motivation

Comment #15 - Posted by: Jason at November 26, 2008 6:36 PM

I used a five gallon bucket filled with gravel before I could afford a kettel bell...

Comment #16 - Posted by: CP at November 26, 2008 6:36 PM

Definitely a lot to give thanks for this year. The great CrossFit community is definitely on my list. Thanks Coach for everything you do.

love it. solid work, jesse.

Comment #18 - Posted by: ec at November 26, 2008 6:41 PM

I love the Grace videos - Throwing Grace, Uneven Grace - My absolute favorites!!

Comment #19 - Posted by: Robin @ CrossFit Regina at November 26, 2008 6:44 PM

135 one arm... no prob! oH SHIT WAIT IM AWAKE NOW. Sub for the muscelup. is it because you have no rings or muscle up isn't you yet? try a muccleup with a rubber band or a bench. put your toes on the bench or in the band and try a muscle up. there is a a video on it somemwhere check youtube. it help me get the whole tech down. gotta go finish my one arm 135# jerks now.

Comment #20 - Posted by: At my signal unleash Hell at November 26, 2008 6:44 PM

Hi Jason (#17),

There is an official Crossfit substitution of performing multiple reps of pullups and ring dips for each rep of muscleups prescribed. However, in my experience, the muscle-up is better trained for as well as emulated by the following.

- Explosive pullups, trying to get as high on the bar as possible. Low rep sets with a strong kip. Break up the set as soon as you lose that pop. Performance goal here is to get as high as you can above the bar.

- Alternated with the deepest ring dips you can safely do. The focus here is on depth, not rep count. Go as deep as you can for you. Your shoulders will eventually adjust to the depth. Don't rush it so you don't hurt yourself.

You can add a weighted vest to the above if they are too easy, but if that's the case, then it's probably technique, not strength, that's holding you back from the muscleup.
Hope this helps.

Matt

Comment #21 - Posted by: Matt S at November 26, 2008 6:46 PM

Best example of how to do a jerk so far! Showing how much your legs are involved in the lift,

Comment #22 - Posted by: Durs at November 26, 2008 6:46 PM

wow that was amazing! I just tried 45# (bar only) one-handed clean and jerks and couldnt even do ONE!

Happy Thanksgiving--heres to staying away from the potatoes and stuffing and loading up on tryptophan-loaded turkey!

Comment #23 - Posted by: B.Prendergast at November 26, 2008 6:47 PM

Woah, that was just wacked. What a beast, holy moly.

Comment #24 - Posted by: gaucoin at November 26, 2008 6:48 PM

RIP Nate Hardy, this one's for you and your brothers.
As for the one armed Grace video, that was some seriously strong work. For the first person to critique his form or anything else, I like the quote from Talladega Night's Cal Naughton Jr.: "I'll sock you right in the mouth!"

Comment #25 - Posted by: Robert at November 26, 2008 6:54 PM

That was cool.

Comment #26 - Posted by: MaxG at November 26, 2008 6:54 PM

2 pood sub can be found in FAQs and "start here"..

This one will be a tough one but I may luck with a buddy at work with his kettlebells.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us out here deployed.

Comment #35 - Posted by: Chris Manning at November 26, 2008 7:33 PM

Unbelievable. one-armed grace? What comes next the 3 fingered Grace? Wait a minute...that might be nice.

Comment #36 - Posted by: brendan at November 26, 2008 7:36 PM

One question for every one what do you think about milk? Like non sugar fruits shakes i'm always fighting to keep ripped i only drinked them after the WOD

Comment #37 - Posted by: David at November 26, 2008 7:43 PM

Dude I was there in the background! That was the coolest thing I have ever seen live. It was amzing, I started looking at people's faces afterwards, everyone's jaw was dropped. Jesse is the man, couldn't be a nicer more laid ack guy too!

Comment #38 - Posted by: Adam/TempleOwl at November 26, 2008 7:47 PM

SO thankful to coach and the entire CF community. I feel blessed to have my health and be able to get up tomorrow to attack a WOD. Even more blessed that my 7yo can sometimes join the fun.

Tomorrow will be the Turkey Trot... Run 5k for time!

But, thank you Coach for reminding us how thankful we should be to those who risk and sometimes sacrifice their lives for this country.

Happy Thanksgiving... now, back to that turkey!

Get some!

I've been doing cross fit for close to 3 months now and I have made some improvements in the short period of time but I have such a long way to go. After watching this video I can see I have still not earned the title of "crossfitter" yet. Of all the videos I have seen, this video is the one that motivates me the most to earn that title. Well done Jesse, but you dont need me to tell you that. Here I 3,2,1 go again...

Comment #43 - Posted by: Bombdawgy at November 26, 2008 8:35 PM

That, my friends, was totally bitchin. One armed Grace. Unbelievable.

Comment #44 - Posted by: Travis from Reno at November 26, 2008 8:37 PM

I can touch the middle of my stomach to the bar (hard enough to knock the wind out of myself), but I can't figure out the transition. Any light switches to activate my light bulb? I do dips all the way down to where my hands touch my armpits... Just can't put the two together... The guys that don't even crossfit with me jump on the bar and smash out multiples after never having heard of them... SOOOOO FRUSTRATING!

Comment #45 - Posted by: Noel / 32 / 68" / 175# at November 26, 2008 9:02 PM

I am thankful for finding Crossfit, it has helped me to realize that someone can achieve what they want if they work hard for it.

Thanks again.

Comment #48 - Posted by: Monica @ Boston at November 26, 2008 9:49 PM

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving from the land of sand. Please be sure to cherish the quality family time today. That is what I miss most of all. None the less, we will still have a great day filled with delicious food and brotherhood!

This is my second week in CF and one of the things I like most of all is the comment posts and message boards. There is almost a family feel to it. definitely a tight knit group with great camaaderie. Thanks CrossFit and thanks coach for helping me find the path to true fitness! Keep up the great work everyone!

#5 Reagan,

This is thanksgiving. Don't one of your relatives have a 2 pood kid that would love to be your sub for the swings.

Though really the WOD could have been kid swings - until the kids you bored or max reps.

Dear Jesse Emers,

Frankly, that was awesome.

This is how little CrossFit brats trash talk at school: "My grandma can do one-armed-Grace faster than your Grandma!"

Comment #59 - Posted by: Amadraeus at November 27, 2008 2:13 AM

That was incredible. These main site videos never cease to impress. I am just waiting for the day I will be able to do a regular Grace as rx'd!!

Comment #60 - Posted by: tater at November 27, 2008 2:18 AM

Happy Thanksgiving to all the crossfitters! Being deployed in Iraq right now, I was glad to honor Nate's memory with this WOD. I had to make some subs due to limited equipment/still being a crossfit noob, but this WOD still smoked me and I feel great!

Comment #62 - Posted by: scotte at November 27, 2008 2:26 AM

That video owns. Equal single arm strength and skill is the real deal.

Comment #63 - Posted by: Dave @ UIC at November 27, 2008 3:02 AM

I would actually like to correct myself and not say arm strength since I know the power comes from the legs and hip drive, and the arm is just a transition point to get it over head.

I would like to say equal skill, coordination, and stability for each side is the real deal.

Good Work!

Comment #64 - Posted by: Dave @ UIC at November 27, 2008 3:10 AM

That what Im talking about. One arm each side a true balance of strength. Awesome

then 8 pull ups, 8 ring dips and 2 HSPU.
Got 13 rounds last time but the last time I tried to do muscle ups the day after doing 150+ GHD situps I couldn't get one, so I'm not too unhappy with my effort. Also, it's 7:16 am on Thanksgiving morning and I'm done working out for the day.

I wanna say real quick, thanks Coach for all you have done. Crossfit is an epidemic that will soon take over the fitness industry.

Also want to thanks our military members for serving this great country. We are blessed to have them.

Lastly, thanks to CFHQ for giving me the opportunity to affiliate. I am a LEO and believe that Crossfit will probably one day save my life. Check out our site. It hasnt been linked yet to main page, or search engines, but looking for honest opinions. Thanks CF community.......

EQUIPMENT SUB FOR KETTLEBELLS

Before I bought a few KBs I used to use an old propane tank for the KBS. I took the top off it and would fill it with sand until it weighed 35# then used water until it weighed the right amount (only went up to 1.5pd, never tried 2pd) then tighten the top back down.

I used a few pieces of old garden hose slit lengthwise on the handles wrapped with tape to stop my hands from getting cut up.

If you are short, you can stand on cinderblocks so you have the clearance to make the swing.

Enjoy.....

Happy thanksgiving, all.

Comment #94 - Posted by: filthybrit at November 27, 2008 7:26 AM

It's morning here in Cleveburg and the sun is shining! Frost on the ground, almost all of the leaves have been picked up. It's only a bit past 10, and we expect to see neither hide nor tail of the Bingo progeny until the crack of noon. Quiet and contemplative, Mrs. Bingo and I move quietly through the downstairs, the dogs already back asleep. The day's challenge--the turkey is still frozen! Ah well...

It's Thanksgiving in the U.S., and as we've seen above it's Thanksgiving all around the world, wherever one might find an American. Thanksgiving is unique among holidays in the U.S. in that it is almost totally devoid of commercialism, pure in both its intent and application. Today we gather and we give thanks. We are Americans, after all, and no matter how difficult we find our present circumstances we are still a fortunate lot.

Crossfitters all over the world will gather at an affiliate, in their garage, or here at CFHQ. It's a big table with room for pretty much everyone who needs a place. Pull up a chair. The fare is plentiful and the hosts are generous. Grab a burpee; pass the kettlebell, please. There's enough for everyone. This is my third Thanksgiving here and wow, look at all the people!

Thank you, Coach and Lauren, for setting this table. Thank you for saving me a seat. Thank you to each one of you here in the "virtual gym" for giving me someone to workout "with".

Happy Thanksgiving.

#53, I love it! One of the best workouts I ever had was playing with my cousin's kids at my mother's b'day party last spring! They were about fifty, sixty, and seventy pounds, so I had plenty of variety. I spent hours perfecting my new favorite sport: "cousin-tossing!" I was deadlifting those kids, throwing 'em onto the couch, tossin' 'em around in the pool, crawling around with 'em on my back-- we all had a blast, and a great workout to boot!

RETROGRADE PEFORMANCE for me today.

11 rounds plus 2 muscle ups. Still feeling a little bent out of shape from Mr Joshua yesterday. I felt like I had no pressing strength in the HSPUs today. All KB and MU unbroken.

Last time I was 2 KBS from 15 rounds so not too good today for me.

No equipment but running shoes and a timer at my Uncle's place in PA, so running it was. No snow and quite a bit warmer here than home in Wisconsin.

Run from Uncle's mailbox to stop sign (no idea of the distance), basing my time off my first and freshest effort. Decided to have a break equal to my first run between attempts. The object was to have every run less than my first attempt.

I did 9 rounds. At a hotel in Louisville, KY, and the gym is pretty basic, so I did 4 dips/round in substitute for the muscle ups.

At first the WOD was kinda boring...then I hit round 7 and it stared to hurt. Good stuff. Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving.

T-day update:

30 sandbag C&J filled with 1 cubic foot of damp sand (120#). Tried with 1.5 cu/ft, but the jerk was not gonna happen. Need to make a .25 cu/ft bag.

Then I did 5 cleans with 1.5 cu/ft, and some Zercher and shouldering walks. The walks were the hardest on the core.

Gotta love back to back hero WODs. Yesterday about killed me took 34:00 scaled to 225 and got humiliated by the rest of the CF community. Took me about twenty minutes just to get coherent last night. I really had to dig deep and found insiration from "Josh." Thank You all military personell for protecting my freedom and allowing us to be so glutinous is such a crazy world. Thanks coach for opening my mind to the military. I used to bash it and everyone who was "dumb enough" to volunteer. Makes me feel like a big puss. I love Crossfit and am absolutely committed to executing and teaching its principles. Making some kind of metal out of this softee.

hi guys, quick question.

I've looked through the FAQs but can't find an answer.

Its about the Fran. Would starting with pullups be okay rather than thrusters as i find the pullups alot more difficult, so starting with them would allow me to do larger sets.

Comment #165 - Posted by: jon bennett at November 27, 2008 12:19 PM

33/M/180/6'00"

Out of town with no equipment today and nothing but my jump rope, kettlebell and myself. So, I did:

50 Double-unders
5 Handstand Push-ups
40 Double-unders
10 Handstand Push-ups
30 Double-unders
15 Handstand Push-ups
20 Double-unders
20 Handstand Push-ups
10 Double-unders
25 Handstand Push-ups

24:38

Double-unders were nearly unbroken in all sets. HSPU's were a different story. I picked them because I am terrible at them. The first 20 were legit. The next 45 were HSPU's minus the PU's. Just HS with a 3-5 second hold for each one, hence the ridiculously long time.

Followed the workout with a delicious Indian lunch and we're heading to the turkey destination in a few minutes.

How many blocks is: Heaping plate of turkey, 2 big slices of ham, a mound of stuffing, large scoop of mashed potatoes, 1 cup sweet potato casserole, 1 cup green bean casserole, 1 slice pumpkin pie, and 1 slice of chocolate pecan pie? I'm curious, because that will be round one of three.

See you all in the gym tomorrow.

Comment #171 - Posted by: jb at November 27, 2008 12:32 PM

Dan D.

Here is my guess:

Heaping plate of turkey - 4 PRO
2 big slices of ham - 3 PRO
a mound of stuffing - 4 CHO
large scoop of mashed potatoes - 2 CHO
1 cup sweet potato casserole - 5 CHO
1 cup green bean casserole - 1 CHO
1 slice pumpkin pie - 3 CHO
and 1 slice of chocolate pecan pie - 4 CHO

7 PRO, 19 CHO, just a guess.

You might want to eat more turkey and ham to bring your PRO blocks up, but make sure you cover everything with gravy to bring those fat blocks up too!

That's okay - enjoy it! I am sure that tomorrow is going to be brutal!

14 and 2 muscle ups

only have 1.5 pood kb. did 11 swings with that instead of 8. figured 8 x 70lbs is 560 so 52 x 11 is 572 similar work only doing more reps. Not sure if that is a viable sub.

RIP Nate

Will have to try 1-armed Grace. I've knocked out plenty of 135# cleans and jerks with 1 arm, but only as warm-ups one at a time before doing real C&J attempts. I fear for my spine if I try doing 30 in a row.

Comment #204 - Posted by: Tim T at November 27, 2008 3:58 PM

14 full + 1 MU. I can't find any prior records for me and this WOD but I'm thinking it's a PB.

Felt good during the WOD, maybe should have pressed the speed for HSPUs and swings because the MU's got pretty slow by the 10 minute mark. All MU's with rings turned out at the bottom and few 'drop off' reps. Only missed one MU in one of the later rounds. HSPUs all unbroken and swings were basically an irritant before attempting the next round of MU's.

Good WOD, felt good today so maybe the Mojo is coming back. I almost did a post-WOD today but thought better of it.

1 Round better than last time...I think I got a new way of taking on this WOD that will help me in the future and that's to not gorge on apple cider, pumpkin bread, chicken noodle soup, rice crispy treats and other Thanksgiving junk food all day before doing the WOD by myself on the apparatus floor at the fire department. Mentally it's a morale crusher and I was worried that I was going to get sick.

For an alternate 2 pood kettlebell I strung 7 10 lb plates on a heavy duty chain and connected the chain to make a loop....It worked great maybe better than a kettlebell, all the weight is at the bottom. The only problem is that I had to wear work gloves to keep the chain from pinching my hands.

Extremely weak at handstands much less HSPUs

Completed 6 rounds of:
6 PU and 6 Dips (focused on chest to bar and depth for dips, getting close to MU strength I think)
10 second Hand Stand holds
8 x 70 Pound Dumbbell swings

Half way through seventh round when I got stuck waiting on cable isolation workout people. Probably would've finished the round too. What a waste.

Comment #230 - Posted by: BryanH at November 27, 2008 7:12 PM

Scaled to Pack:

6 PU and 12 ball push ups
4 Handstand Push ups - had to use wall for first 2 rounds, then switched to chair
8 55# DB Swings

8 rounds + 6 PU & 6 Push ups

Ball push ups were used in place of dips because I couldn't get a dip bar near a pull up bar. Felt about the same as 6 dips though.

I got my first MU a couple months ago but have been unable to work on them at my globo gym. Therefore...

and that was the most muscle-ups I've ever done in a day. If I subbed dips/pull-ups I probably could have gotten well over twice the number of rounds.

Woops misread the "NATE" workout. I did 2 handstand push ups, 4 muscle ups and 8 kettleball swings with 70LBS, 9 ROUNDS IN 20 MINUTES NEW PR

On 10/10/08 I did the real "NATE" workout 2 MU's, 4 HSPU and 8 kettleball 70LBS swings only 8 rounds.

The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don't define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.

Lower back still seazed right up from Mr.Joshua.

So tell me something...the fact that the front of my shins look like hamburger right now...does that mean im using good or bad form with my deadlifts??

Full turn out at the bottom of the muscle ups. HSPU's were horrible. I kipped most of them up and my hands were far out shortening my ROM. I'm trying to get better at them by doing 50 HSPU's every other day, but I'm coming along slowly.

9 rounds at 19:20 or so. 6 Pull-ups/dips instead of MUs, due to equipment available.

HSPUs were done free-standing, with minimal support from a wall. They were definitely the limiting factor for me.

Well, I didn't pay close enough attention to the rx'd WOD and thought it was a 1 1/2 pood so that's what I used.

Rounds were:
2x muscle ups
5x assited HSPU (feet on bench)
8x 1 1/2 pood swings

12 rounds in 20 min

Comment #361 - Posted by: Eamon at December 1, 2008 8:47 AM

17 rounds

Comment #362 - Posted by: Rosser at December 1, 2008 9:39 AM

sub 3:3 pu/dip for each MU
HSPU with feet on level two squat rack bars
70#DB for swings

10 rounds with 3:3 x 2

previous was 10 rounds even

30M/5'6"/165#

As Rx'd: 12 complete rounds + 2 MU's + 4 HSPU's

Started as a pretty good Met-Con work-out & then turned into a pure strength workout at about round 8 or 9 when the MU's & HSPU's started to get very difficult.

Comment #366 - Posted by: dyagg at December 1, 2008 4:31 PM

For kettlebell swings I've been using a potato sack filled with bags of sand that weigh about 5 pounds each to adjust for the weight I need. The bags of sand are actually tough plastic zippered bags that are wrapped with duct tape to keep them from busting open when I drop them. The sacks also make a pretty good medicine ball and are cheap and strong. I got them from a feed store.

Comment #398 - Posted by: Richard: m/24/205/6'1" at December 10, 2008 8:14 AM

Finally made this up today.

CFWU (rowing MUs instead of PUs/dips, GHD SUs)

Subbed rowing MUs for muscle-ups, 70lb db for kb.

10 Rounds (20:11)

First time trying HSPUs in a WOD for real. For the first 5 rounds, managed to get nearly full ROM, though as I progressed I know I pressed more of my body against the wall so form deteriorated quickly. From round 6 on, ROM suffered a little more, and for the last few rounds was only able to do 2 HSPUs, and did negatives for the remaining two reps per round. Pleased, however, that I'm slowly making improvement with this skill.

Take care!

Comment #399 - Posted by: R.Lee_Seattle at December 10, 2008 1:28 PM
