Hero WOD.
Give it your all.

Nuff said. Bring it.

Comment #19 - Posted by: Cal Kid at May 21, 2009 6:00 PM

Good info on the demos. I'm very aware of my weakness with my overhead squat, so it's nice to know I can use someone in the group as a demo.

Can't wait for my level 2 in October!

Comment #20 - Posted by: Kevin Wood - CrossFit Moncton (28/6'3/175#) at May 21, 2009 6:06 PM

#10,
easiest sub for back extensions is Supermen. Lie face down on floor, with arms laid out in front and legs slightly open.
Raise shoulders & upper torso and legs from the thigh off the ground as high as you can and then return to the ground.

Not as much of a range of movement but a good sub if you like to pay tribute to Michael outside or at the track

Comment #21 - Posted by: nick sydney m/37/6ft/185 at May 21, 2009 6:25 PM

Can someone add the compare to link please

Comment #22 - Posted by: Wes_in_SoCal at May 21, 2009 6:27 PM

Thanks Matt Gibson, I like to compare times and thanks to you I can without having to go to all the effort of investigating when the last Michael was.

I don't need a strength day. Keep the Metcon coming.

Comment #23 - Posted by: jc at May 21, 2009 6:28 PM

looking forward to this one. My quads are screaming from the past two days........ It's got to be a hero effort tommorow. A great way to bring in the Memorial Day weekend.

Comment #24 - Posted by: Matthew at May 21, 2009 6:40 PM

Great... it looks like I'm going to have to run on the treadmill. I like running outside better.

Comment #25 - Posted by: Daniel Krull at May 21, 2009 6:41 PM

IDK about a strength day, for a long time (aka old) runner/cyclist with pitiful upper body strength, today was a strength day. Admittedly, it was high cardio ;-). So Friday's WOD (like Wed) is the only kind I can do as rx'd. Watching me do pull-ups is like watching a skinny minnow flailing in the bait bucket.

Still I love the challenge...no pain, no gain!

I'm new, and have a question for you all. I struggled through my first muscle up yesterday and when I finished, my left arm was almost numb. I would call it a "dead arm", like I just threw a 99mph fast ball without warming up. Lasted for about an hour. Shoulder is tender today. Has this happened to anyone else? Should I lay off shoulder work for a week? Month?

Thanks. Love the site.

Comment #30 - Posted by: J at May 21, 2009 7:21 PM

Comment #31 - Posted by: jimmy at May 21, 2009 7:32 PM

Can some affiliate owners tell me what to expect monthly insurance to run roughly, on opening a crossfit facility. I am a member of the rrg. We are looking at a 1400 sqft facility if that makes any difference.

Comment #33 - Posted by: Daniel Krull at May 21, 2009 8:00 PM

I think the picture is a little offensive, especially for someone with German heritage. Doing handstand in front of a 'place of remembrance' ... WTF

Comment #34 - Posted by: chuck at May 21, 2009 8:15 PM

As we all prepare to put our minds and bodies to the test with another difficult workout, I implore everyone to remember what these Hero workouts represent.

I have read the posts of those who say that these workouts are a publicity stunt, disrespectful to the memories of the fallen, and go against the foundation of crossfit. BS! Ask the average person to name 5 people who have died protecting this great nation and its great people. Most cannot. Now ask a crossfitter...JT, Murph, Michael, Josh, Randy...these names ring in our memories when we associate pain, hard work, and triumph with their workouts. I will never forget those names. This is not disrespect, this is honor.

Read their stories, punch their names into google, if you can, ask someone who knew them. You will see that these were great men, most of whom died under horrific circumstances that most people wouldn't want to have nightmares about. They were Heroes before they had a workout named after them. Give them their due, they gave you yours. Semper Fidelis brothers.

Comment #35 - Posted by: FastMatt at May 21, 2009 8:18 PM

OMG! What a HUGE honor to make the main site in a video! The Rocky Mtn. Games was a truly awesome experience and I am even more hooked on Crossfit now than before the competition. It was great to meet up with the Crossfit community and get a taste of such a wonderful support group of great athletes and people. I am already working hard to get ready for next year and looking forward to meeting more inspiring Crossfitters!! Thank you to everyone for all your support and encouragement~

All this rowing and running and core work... Coach is getting us ready for summer and swim suits. Thanks!

Comment #38 - Posted by: Hale at May 21, 2009 9:13 PM

Coach,

I know you haven't posted the criteria for the video qualifying WOD but could this work??? I came in 6th in the NW qualifier, placing 1st in the muscle-up+wallball+SDHP WOD. I was 19th in the lifting however (460 DL 187 Press) and didn't make the cut. I guess that means I need to work on my strength so on Wed I did KING KONG for time.

19th place with a 460 DL and 187 press? The PNW is LEGIT!

Comment #40 - Posted by: Herm at May 21, 2009 9:28 PM

800m? Darn, my ankle has not been very happy with me lately. Oh well, I'll wrap it and then run it. Just curious, I have been doing CrossFit for a little over a month. I have been recording my times/weights etc. I have improved my overall fitness by leaps and bounds. Although, I don't have enough data to correctly project what my improvement for a year should be. What kind of improvements should I be looking at? To rephrase, over a year, what kinds of improvements have people made? I'm trying to be ready for wrestling season next year, I am in a hurry to become fit(ter), but I have enough sense to do it all natural, luckily I found CrossFit. So I guess, my real question is, is a year enough time to get my fitness... better? And if so, can anyone give some testimonials? For inspirational purposes? I love crossfit, and I am looking forward to a great life of fitness from it.

a LOT of complaining for a HERO WOD....i.e. suck it up people and get over it, give something for someone who gave you his all, a workout doesnt mean much, but it's in the HONOR of a HERO...so please, shut up

Big hugs to the FRAT you are the best...

R.I.P. Michael i can't run (ankle problems) but the CF football WOD will be in your name

Comment #44 - Posted by: s'more at May 21, 2009 10:11 PM

Agreed with the first post. During yesterday's workout I had to sub SDHP for the rowing, but I thought the sub was for 95 lb not 45. Talk about a rough WOD.

Comment #45 - Posted by: Glenn McElfresh (m/18/192) at May 21, 2009 10:26 PM

This'll be my first Hero WOD, and I love what it represents. May the memories of the fallen live forever in our hearts, and in our pain after enduring their namesakes.

Comment #49 - Posted by: jp at May 22, 2009 12:07 AM

28/m/80kg

28:06

GHD situps

Subbed: Reverse back extension (ie. lifted legs instead of torso) on 45 deg incline.

Somewhat underestimated the effect of the incline.

48/m/6'/203/week 28 CF

Michael would have called for the indoor treadmill and the Roman chair in a stuffy gym...it too nice weather wise to stay indoors.

in the gym (to get some lumbar/ab work):
Deadlifts 135 x 8, 275 x 3, 2
Situps 1 x 25

outdoors:
Ran 1.5 miles in 11:03...pushed hard.

Comment #56 - Posted by: Sharon at May 22, 2009 3:26 AM

My back, my neck, my back and my neck! This WOD was really rough on my lower back, but I sucked it up and finished it. The tell you the truth I actually almost cried couple of times. I think Iam going to give my back some must needed rest.

"Michael"

Oh yeah I remember just a couple of weeks ago when I 1st started CF we were in a strength phase and everyone was missing the "girls" and "heros". You only get what you ask for. Keep it coming coach.

Comment #58 - Posted by: duane at May 22, 2009 4:04 AM

This was one of my first WODS, I had no idea what a HERO was when I started.....

It's Memorial Day weekend, and everyone is thinking about barbecues, going to the beach and sales at the mall...my co-worker Nancy B is waiting anxiously for her son to come home from Afghanistan this weekend.

What is this day that has become the hallmark of summer, of bathing suit season? What can we do to observe this *holiday*?

* by visiting cemeteries and placing flags or flowers on the graves of our fallen heroes.

* by visiting memorials.

* by flying the U.S. Flag at half-staff until noon.

* by flying the 'POW/MIA Flag' as well (Section 1082 of the 1998 Defense Authorization Act).

* by participating in a "National Moment of Remembrance": at 3 p.m. to pause and think upon the true meaning of the day, and for Taps to be played.

* by renewing a pledge to aid the widows, widowers, and orphans of our falled dead, and to aid the disabled veterans.

"...gather around their sacred remains and garland the passionless mounds above them with choicest flowers of springtime....let us in this solemn presence renew our pledges to aid and assist those whom they have left among us as sacred charges upon the Nation's gratitude,--the soldier's and sailor's widow and orphan." --General John Logan, General Order No. 11, 5 May 1868

So quitcherbellyachin' and HIT the WOD- HARD..

Comment #77 - Posted by: Steve at May 22, 2009 5:57 AM

To be perfectly honest, I had to drink a bottle of "Shut the F### Up" (STFU) this morning when I saw the WoD.

As Rx'd = 22:12

Now all I have to do is get through my CFE cycling this afternoon - I put another bottle of STFU in my bag just in case I think about whining later on.

BrandX Pack scaling:

3rds - 800m (@ 7:30mile pace), 35 back ext, 35 sit-ups (incline bench)

TIME - 22:50

shuffling between treadmill and back extension, then sharing with another CrossFitter here on the FOB. :)

I started to see grey on the last 800m, so I decided a 30-second pause was prudent v. passing out and sanding my face off with a speeding treadmill.

Get some.

First hero workout coming up! Need to sub good mornings for back extensions. How much weight should be used? I thought I read someone above say they did it with 25 pounds... is that a good weight?

Also, I don't have access to an outdoor area that is measured and would have weights. If I run this indoors, do I keep the clock running while the treadmill is warming up?

Tough to keep it going at a fast pace but reminding yourself that it's for a true hero is enough to keep you going.

Did a nice 4kish run afterwards, and some pullups because I still had an hour before work =).

I figured out a better strategy for Michael. I ran waaaaay too fast on my first 800 m run last time I did this WOD so I slowed myself down on purpose, the result was a faster transition to situps and back extensions then back to run. I got an enormous PR today. 2:23 faster than last time.

Finishing up my first week of CrossFit. I'm lovin' it! Man my cardio conditioning is bad. I haven't done cardio consistently in a year. I've never done ext's or situps on the ball so that was a new experience and a little tricky to get down exactly where my balance was best and still allowed me to get good extension. Fun though!

Michael - 23:01 (kind of funny - same time I ran for a 5K this past Sunday)

back extension apparatus was in use by someone as I finished the 2nd 800m run, so I did the situps first in that round. I still had to wait a little over a minute for him to finish (no hard feelings - his workout is important to him too), which definitely cost me some time. Certainly I picked up rest and recovery for sure. At the same time - I didn't get a minute faster on any of the subsequent exercises because of that rest. Additionally - getting back to the running with the hamstrings and glutes a little extra fatigued having just finished the BE definitely hurt me on the 3rd 800m. Oh well - such it is. I'll nail it next time. PR for this one is 19:50.

This is one of my all time favorite (favourite for those outside the US) workouts.

Done at the park. Back extensions were bending over a waist-high railing (like a deep good morning); sit-ups were feet anchored under a dead tree. Otherwise, as rx'd. Ran the 800 route in reverse (clockwise) since the railing is up from the sit-up log. Made for a slightly uphill route (my regular 800 route is slightly downhill).

Time: 19:43 (PR)

Some random observations during Michael:

- Splits were ~ 6:30, 6:50, 6:20. First 800 was 2:45, the others were ~ 3:00.
- My shoe came untied about 200m into the first 800. There was no way I was going to start over, and I didn't want to lose the time to tie it during the run, so I waited until I finished the 800 and then tied it before doing back extensions.
- Back extensions and sit-ups were unbroken. I found the pain of running 800s made doing back extensions and sit-ups feel really, really good by comparison.
- I almost swallowed a gnat during the last 800. He got lodged in my throat - I coughed him up after back extensions. I did not take the time to see if he was okay.
-Really looking forward to rest day tomorrow.

Sit-Ups: 2:28.14, 2:31.72, 2:24.98

Strange, I didn't realize my last run was so poor. That's what I get for not glancing at the GPS. Apparently, for me, perceived exertion does not equal actual exertion! I'm thrilled with my first 800m time though! That's a PR for me..too bad I had misestimated where to put my abmat, so I finished the first 800m about 40m away from the abmat (and the shade). So, that first good morning time includes moving the abmat to the other edge of the shade! :-)

it's not really that big of a deal man. i know i start complaining just about every time i see a new workout pop up. they all suck and there's only a few that i actually look forward to doing. it's no disrespect at all. i look at it as more of a playful whine anyway. if someone really had a problem, i'm sure they would write more than "we need a strength day". i think that was everybody's first reaction to seeing workouts like Michael pop up. if thats not your reaction, then you probably post under the name OPT.

Did Micheal as rxd but had to row due to some inclimate south Florida weather. It looked like this

3 Rounds for Time
1000M Row
50 Back Ext.

I've been flying under the radar since mid-April; still CF'ing 5x/week, just haven't been posting on the main site. I'll get back in saddle ~

I HAD to connect with the community today! Fit Mom, her husband Russ, Tom V. and Caleb who also train at CrossFit Persevere are on their way to Albany, NY for the NE Qualifier. I am so excited for them all individually, as well as in representing CrossFit Persevere as a group. Look out Albany - there are some serious athletes headed your way!

Xfit certainly has improved my ultimate frisbee endurance and recovery time. There is at least 6 guys and girls that I play with that are doing it now. And more joining every month. Great to see.

However, I am running down the street 200m from the fire station and turning around, up and back times 2 for 800m and half of it is up hill (I know dont say it half of it down hill, ha!). Sort of like a painful shuttle sprint(err run), hmm that would be a fun addition to a WOD 200m shuttles!

RE to #226

You're right...everybody's doing their best. I retract my last statement.

You know what would be an interesting Hero WoD? Something out of physical training for infantry troops from WWII. From what I recall (from what I've read, of course, since I wasn't there) I was amazed at the only non-body-weight apparatus used was an M1 Garand rifle w/ bayonet, lots of wrestling, pushups, jumping jacks, and a plethora of other calisthenics for about an hour. It sounded pretty exhausting; it's no wonder that those guys were MUCH skinnier than athletes are now, taking into account the grueling outdoor regimens fueled by one serving, three times a day, of mess hall food and plenty of canteens emptied throughout the day ;^)

#222,
I kinda see where you're coming from, part of me thinks that getting all emotional and worked up for a hero workout is a guilty pleasure. I thought of it as escapism: I have allowed myself to play the part of Beowulf, running bravely into a thane hall full of my slain brethren, caring naught if I live or die. It seemed so artificial to play this part, soldiers are so removed from myself, the military doesn't really exist, the hero workout only serves to fuel my fantasy. But then I remember one of my best friends from High School, he's currently a merchant marine working as a safety officer abort a merchant ship that sails off of Dubai.
He was always into sports and he's the one who got me to join football and wrestling. I will always remember the sweaty delirium of the wrestling gymnasium during practice, his undying enthusiasm and general love of the sport pushing me further and further to the brink of exhaustion but also bliss. Its not impossible that his name would show up someday on CF. When and if that day comes, I know what I'll be doing. I also know what he would have wanted me to do.

Conclusion: Reverence and healthy nationalism aren't dead, support the troops and keep them in your mind.

RE to #234:

I do the same thing. One of my favorite video games of all time is the Resident Evil series. I'm a loyal fan of the original Nintendo superstars, but I think that "Resident Evil 4" is one of the best games ever. The main character, Leon Kennedy, has to do a bunch of stuff throughout the adventure that I thoroughly believe, as insane as this may sounds CF WoDs can apply to. I've been racking my brain to think up a WoD called "Leon" or, if it must be a girl's name, "Claire", named after his partner who has to do the same physical feats.

I guess the same thing can be said about Jason Bourne, too. How cool would THAT be, a week of WoDs based on the Bourne series?

Oh well, back to the real world.

2)14:00(14:00)
3)21:38(21:25)

I fell apart on the last run, couldn't push it. I'm finding it harder to push myself through WOD's, it seems like I can't get my HR up like before.

Took a little rest then followed with an attempt at CFFB WOD:
275# DL x3
Ring Dip x 6
K2E's x 9
10 rounds in 13:03, but I may have counted one round twice on accident due to trying to count after the DL's on the next rnd. blah blah. i was tired, lol.

Warm Up: 12 Chest to bar Kipping Pull Ups

WOD: Michael with GHD's and weighted Hip Extensions 32:48

800 meter Runs: Subbed 860 meter Runs. First one at a decent pace, second one at a slow pace, last one at a snails pace

Back Extensions: Subbed Hip Extensions (more than likely, this is what you did too) and I used a 25lb plate held against my chest. I broke these into sets of 25,15 and 10.

Sit ups: Subbed GHD Sit Ups. From to touch at the top to hand on the ground at the bottom. I broke these into 25,15 and 10.

Oh Brother I sure would like to get this one under 30 minutes. I think if we ever get Micheal on the first day of a three day cycle I can get it there. Today, my quads were already pre-fried from the festivities over the last two WOD's :-)

Oh, by the way, my lady Lysa kicked my @ss on Michael today, she did GHD's as well and finished 5 minutes before me..... Lucky me, she rocks!

I gassed in the middle of the second run and had to concentrate on keeping my dinner down, which was ironic because dinner (pancakes and other garbage) was the reason for said gassing. Bad times.

I encountered a Globo guy tonight who, when he wasn't showing off for his girlfriend by doing bicep curls, made sure I knew he was moving away so they wouldn't get "kicked" while I was doing kipping pull-ups. What a delightful character.

Managed to the gym Saturday morning (the joys of the kids being with gran for the weekend).

Soooooo lonely no one to talk (moan, bitch, whine) to. At least managed to finish all the 800's without the treadmill being turned off.

Still hate running, just don't seem to get any better at it.

Squats for warm up. My elbow and shoulder are still hurting from not warming up yesterday and I want them to be ready for the strengh day tommorrow.

I did the run on the drill pad (approxamitly 500m)time was about 1:55 per lap. Focused on form and efficient motion (i.e. mid foot strike). I ran in vibrams.

Subed 75lb good mornings for back extensions due to lack of equitment. I should have streched more to get a better range of motion.

Sit up were down on a mat with my feet anchored.

Total time was 21:10. I felt pretty good about it. I could have pushed a little harder but I feel like am starting to get through the WOD's better. Less sandbagging.

16:49, blew last score away 18:30 and even did the full 800 m instead of my usual 750 m (the last 50 is a small hill). I have done no running exercises since the 225 deadlift 400 m run workout. I rarely run at all. The fact that my score has improved so much is strong evidence of GPP providing greater gains than sport specific drills.

This one was slower than I've done it in the past. Did it on the track and used a 36" plyo box to do my back extensions, had a Marisa hold my feet. Running is one of my stronger skills, but I couldn't push today. Just had trouble focusing. I'm looking forward to the rest day tomorrow, and I can't wait to see what my CFT is the day after!

I love CF, something about lying in a puddle of my own sweat helps keep my life in perspective. Good stuff.
