Post time to comments.
If you cannot do the muscle-ups do 120 pull-ups and 120 dips.

Ah yes 30 MUs for time. My favorite.
Oh wow, first time with this one
Holy crap I called this one! That's why i brought my rings home with me! Sweet! :D
This'll be the first time as Rx'd
Happy Easter folks!
So, my "as Rx'ed" streak ends here.
Happy Easter to all, and big various forms of hugs to the whole FRAT crew :)
Are you kidding me?
Have a Happy Easter CF family!!
ok i like this one...big hugs to the FRAT hey Pony is back!!!!
is there any tough crossfitter who try my challenge??? let me know
I think my last time was around 30 minutes, a PR shouldn't be too hard, but I can do all 30? Do you guys recommend doing as many MUs as possible then switching to pull-ups and dips, or just doing pull-ups and dips the whole time if you can't do 30 MUs?
Man, my hands are torn to hell, I decided to get caught up on the 10 rounds of 10 pull-ups 10 ring dips for time from awhile back. Are the muscle ups supposed to be done on the rings or the bar, if it is the rings I think I can do it, if it is the bar then definately not! Good luck everyone!
happy easter to all especially the FRATs. going for a PR on this. really need to smash it
Are the 120 dips and pullups on rings or the bar?
hope it's not raining tomorrow and that I can find a playground or a tree to hang my rings.
happy easter all.
sweet been waitin on this one..first try at it
No mu's for me yet and none for Herm, so I guess we will have to figure out another wod in sun-shiney day-go :) My girls' egghunt tomorrow invloves a mini-wod to find the final clues to their Easter treat. Gee..wonder who thought of that? ;) Happy Easter Pony, Eric, FatTony, S'more, FitMom&Mom, Bird, Lisa and, Erin, Cynthiaj, Bingo and PB&J
fat tony - thanks for the props yesterday.
big shoutout to my firebreather Warren who is going to start following the main site and post on here.
s'more - will tackle your WOD tomorrow after 30 MU's. will get Wazza to do it as well
I'm looking to do this as rx'd for the 1st time!!
just got my muscle up about 3 weeks ago
can the 120/120 be combined however or do I need to do all pu's and then all dips?
whats the partitioning for the pu and dips sub?
Anybody see that Jimi vs. Josh video? Funny how a few years ago I tried to teach one of those individuals about crossfit and he wouldn't give me the time of day. Really shows the character of a man, or lack there of.
Thank you Rookie that's a brave crossfitter!!!! Big hugs Cookie and of course ALL the FRAT you guys are the best i really mean it
PS: Rookie reemember all the rules and good luck i think you are on ygr 25 minutes range you are TOUGH...thanks for hit the challenge
I think the suggested way is to do 4 pu then 4 dips for 30 rounds, because that would be most like the muscle ups.
But I don't like the sub....it's a very different workout. So it probably doesn't matter because the goal is improving your pulling and pushing power to get a muscle up later on.
I've heard the 4/4 sub is for a bar and if you do the pull ups and dips on rings, you can do 2/2 sub. Depends what you're going for I guess.
Also, that is one bad ass flag pole pic!
Is that box around 5 feet high or is Rach really, really,really......short?
Hey Rookie is linda style
kb swings, cleans and handstands are 10,9,8,7,6...to 1
Double unders, burpees and box jumps are
Kb swings 2 pood
Box jumps 24"
You know the rules have a good time
Man, it's windy there eh?!
Thats right! Pony Lil Pony Se#y Pony Stick-Wielding A$$Beating Pony is back.... oooh boy good times @ Jeannie's Beach CrossFit.
I had my butt whupped by JroCk & Jeannie, then *I* whupped Allie's butt, literally, with a STICK during his 300m runs, which quickly deteriorated from a *sprint* to a jog to a cuss-filled stagger. Allie is one determined man, and I was impressed with how much strength he mustered up to flip me off LOL I was nicer to him later.
I met rickybobby too! Gave (and got) lots of big frontal hugs to sweaty men & women this weekend- my life is so awesome :) Worked with a KB for the first time: After a lil talkin' to myself, a lot of watchin' and a butt load of forearm whackin', I got the hang of it. My bruised arms speak for themselves.
I was scared (really) because I am so inexperienced but that vanished at 3-2-1 GO! I got all into my head and just focused on ME and didn't know/care what anybody thought. On the way there, I had visions of passing out, of taking puffs unknowingly on an empty inhaler and wheezing out my first DNF (I have NEVER not finished a workout) Just wanted to do the best I could and I felt I did. Was very pleased with my effort on both workouts- it was elevated/enhanced by the amazing energy generated by this crew.
Thank you J & J for treating me like a family- abusin' me, teasin' me, and pilin' on a whole lotta love. I have been to Va Beach many many times, and have always wondered... hmmmm?... well, anyway, I plan to return. Hugs n Kisses
Sara- so pleased you liked The Giving Tree. I am a little bookworm (when I am not reading CF Journal) and that is one of my fave children's books :)
Ooh! I'm so going to do this again!
I was able to get ring MU before i got sidetracked for a while. i can still do bars...but i want to get all rings. We'll see.
good luck all.
I need LOTS of forearm work before i can do the rings, I think I'll just do the bars again.
Box squat will wreck your knees. Better wait until you get some RRG insurance before teaching it to your clients.
EVERYONE.....SUPPORT THE RISK RETENTION GROUP!! CROSSFIT IS UNDER ATTACK.
I like the dodge, too.
I'm not sure how much I like this workout. :)
Woohoo! 1.5 years of Crossfitting and I was finally able to land a pic on the main site! Big thanks to whom ever decided to use it and to all those who've complimented the shot.
The pic was taken on board a carnival cruise ship, the wind had no part in the creation of the shot, and yes, I did get yelled at but a crew member shortly after this was taken :)
Maybe he met someone more persuasive?
And it does show character to revisit an issue and change you mind.
Awesomeness as Rx'd. I wish you luck buddy as I'm busting out my 120.
And Dave Tate is the man!
Chuck Taylors are a fashion travesty.
i have rings, and can do a few muscle ups, but i'm pretty confident that i can't do all 30. is it cool to sub 1 ring pullup and 1 ring dip for each muscle up that i can't do, as opposed to 4 each for every rep?
well. i did 100 pullups in 28 min. Had to stop though, 3 blisters blew out on my hands!!! It was a bloody day!! Cant wait for tomorrow.
Wow it should be illegal to make us do this many MUs haha I dont have rings so ill be doing them on a pull up bar... wish me luck
60 Pull-Ups, 60 Bar Dips.
(9'43" last time, with jumping pull-ups and bench dips.)
No rings so I subbed:
120 reverse curls with empty EZ bar
120 tricep kickbacks with 5kg dumbell
Sets broken, Duh ; )
What a great arm workout!
chris - nice time. great to catch up last week.
thanks mate! you gonna head to CFB in august for games??
big time. definitely competing even if on one leg
WOD as rx´d: 9:14 PR (last time 15:04)
30 mu for time
full mu from dead hang each time. pr by over 4 min
Happy Easter everyone!!
Do we do 120 dips, then pull-ups, or can we break them up??
I can do a jumping muscle up and am working up to full.
First time actually doing all 30. Got the first 3 in a row, without letting go. Then got several 2 in a rows. I'm pretty happy seeing as how last time only got 19.
As Rx'd: 19:40
30 Muscle ups 7.20
Shoulder Press 3x3 50/52.5/52.5kg followed by Crossfit endurance workout 5/6/7 mins time trails.
Im going to enjoy my Easter Egg!
Woah, strong guy. Someday, someday, I will get there... -grits teeth and lifts-
Ok, I'm confused.
In the 10 p/u, 10 ring dip(r/d) WOD on Friday 090327, the sub for the r/d was 2 bar dips, but for the MU sub, it's 4???
I understand that the MU is a more difficult skill, but the pulling motion on a bar and rings is not that different, and the accepted sub in other ring workouts is 2 for 1, so why the discrepancy?
I can do MUs, but don't have the rings, so I am familiar with the amount of strength/exertion required to perform a MU, but in my opinion, the actual pulling motion is not that different if your pullup is to your mid-chest. So, I'm not quite understanding why 1 ring p/u is equal to 4 bar p/u's.
I'm just thinking here, I actually like this workout as either the 30 MUs or the 120 p/u's dips, as both are an incredible workout. It just seems that in other workouts where r/d's are prescribed, that the accepted sub should be 4 to 1, not 2 to 1.
bar muscle ups x 30
30 seconds faster than last time
done outside, in the sun :D
1) Happy Easter!
2) Jackie Burke. In an article on Tiger Woods this quote was resurrected: "If you want to lead the choir, you've got to turn your back on the people."
There's a lot of meat on that relatively skinny bone. I think there is greater meaning in this quote than simply an explanation of Tiger Woods (and Hogan's) aloofness toward their competitors. To lead can be a lonely experience, always facing outward toward the unknown, always facing the people who are NOT in the choir. Alone, out front, the primary target. Comfort and aid come only when you look behind.
No one who stands in front of the choir emerges unscathed. Leaders of distinction take the hits, welcome new members of the choir, and go right back out in front with firm conviction and purpose. We have a couple of people like that right here.
3) A Simple Story. Today much of the Christian world celebrates Easter, one of the most consequential, complex, and difficult to comprehend stories of all time. There are other literary and cinematic works that are challenging and substantial, expansive in both scope and meaning. These aren't the stories I'm interested in today.
Mrs. Bingo and I watched a movie last night that was as insignificant as the Easter story is epic. A silly little musical based on the songbook of a band that produced hit after hit with the nutritional value of cotton candy. The story was too thin to fill the program on an elementary school stage. And yet the whole thing made me very happy.
I got to thinking about that as we prepared the pet menagerie for bed. Why was I so happy after this movie? I think it's because I was open to anything that MIGHT make me happy. Ready to be happy. At some point I'd unlocked the "front door", given the doorman time off, and rolled out the red carpet for silly, stupid, unexpected moments of happy.
Whoa...how did THIS happen? I'm kind of a pessimist, one eye always on the risks ahead, one ear always tuned to hear the "other shoe" drop, a lifetime of experience avoiding stuff I've discovered makes my UNhappy. How does someone like this go to bed happy after "Mama Mia"?
Well, it's another training effect, I think. Call it "General Happiness Preparedness" or GHP. If my acquired wariness of things that make me unhappy and my inborn defensive posture are two mental/emotional domains, think of "GHP" as training in another mental/emotional domain, the ability to accept "happy" however it may come. Now there is no mental/emotional training in which EVERYTHING can make you happy (that would be another GPP: General Pollyanna Training), but I DO think that you can train yourself to be open to stuff--all kinds of stuff--that might make you happy, even if just for a moment.
Think about it. GHP. Open the door, just a little bit, so that some silly little nothingburger thing like, I dunno, ABBA can slip in and make you happy. Even if just for a moment.
I'll see you next week...
Crossfitters, any idea on best sub for MU's if using Rings for PU's and Dips? Is it still 120 reps each? For me, Ring Pullups are no more challenging than bar pullups, but a ring dip is way more difficult than a parallel bar dip. Thanks in advance.
Happy Easter/Passover everyone.
Can't muscle - up yet, but I'll give it a try before I start the sub.
120 bar dips
i did 4 pull-ups then 4 bar dips x 30
time 21:04 slow i know, it's a start point
I hope everyone has a Happy (Zone-free) Easter
WOD as rx´d: 5.28
10 OH squat
15 roman chair situp
15 roman chair back ext
30 dips - Full, no assist, on PVC dip station
30 chinup. Assist with legs on bench. (kneel on bench, grab bar, scooch forward and assist with top of feet on bench)
Broke them into sets of 5.
If you can do jumping muscle ups or even a muscle up progression (Jeff Tucker's) basically a muscle up with your feet on the floor it's a lot better to learn the movement pattern for the muscle up than dips/pullups sub.
man I have the biggest carb hangover from Easter...
Wow, if I could do that flag move I would definately be smiling...
kipping ring muscle ups--6:40
1 muscle-up, then the rest were 116 pull-ups and dips. The pull-ups and dips combo is no doubt much harder than the muscle-up combo!
60 Ring Dips
Was able to get my first MU today but unable to do 30 yet. 5 is about my limit.
After did 60 extra ring dips. Plan on working on MU progression for the rest of the day. Next time this will be as Rx'd!
Can't do that many pullups od dips, so I did them on the assist machine.
16:32 with "140" on the machine.
Everybody starts somewhere.
replaced MU with 120 pull ups and dips. Broke them up into 10 sets of 12. first three sets of pull ups dead hang. Sets 4 and 5 kipping pull ups and last 5 sets of pull ups jumping pull ups.
Worked on MU progression- 10 from knees,
120 Ring Pullups
60 Ring Dips
Started with sets of 12/6 until halfway point, then resorted to sets of 6/3 for remainder-- limitation was entirely ring dips.
Bingo- Welcome to my world! While I'm not Pollyanna, I'm close... Ponyanna, maybe. I almost always find myself in the place just right. :)
"'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free,
'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gain'd,
To bow and to bend we shan't be asham'd,
To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come out right."

As Rx'd 14:24
Been Sick in bed for 2 days. That Sucked.
A question about belts was asked a few days ago. I don't use a belt, because I don't feel I move heavy enough loads. Here is Rip's take on belts.
From Rip's forum on Strength Mill.com:
It has been my experience that back injuries of various types and degrees of severity are the most common injury among competitive-level lifters.
This is why I find it irritating that
1.) the fools at the certifying organizations recommend against the Valsalva, and
2.) that the kids in the "functional training" community keep arguing about belts from a rather poorly-reasoned theoretical standpoint with people that know better from a position of experience.
Scaled to 20, ripped left wrist on last one. 26:30.
Way off my PR of 15:00 as rx'd. Not sure why.
3:55 subbed with jumping MU
s'more i'll be trying your challenge later today looks like fun
30 Muscle-ups for time
4:26 (PR) With full turn out at the bottom.
Big difference from 4:08 minus the turn out.
22:24 as rx'd.
done in singles with arms slightly bent at bottom.
not a very good showing for me. shoulders are shot.
Slung my rings over the tire swing rack on the playground ended shirtless in the sun, loved it! much more room than doing it on the squat rack at the gym (i'm so short I can still make that work though!)
Slow and steady, but I'm stoked because it's the first time I got all 30 (only 1 fail), last time I got 23 with a LOT of fails in there and finished with the 3/3 ring pullup/ring dip sub.
congrats to everyone getting their firsts and getting all 30 for the first time. There are some HOT times out there, awesome!!! Now I need to start working on doubles and triples etc, and get some speed so I can catch you guys.
2nd time as Rx'd - 14:50 (PR)
1st time as Rx'd - 29:15
Felt a lot stronger today. Thinking of my girl made it go much easier. Have been working my "dead-hang" muscle up technique I learned at the gymnastics cert from a few months back. It definitely has helped. Still had about 5 or 6 misses which would have made my time better, but I will take a 14 minute PR any day of the week (and twice on Sunday's). Next time aiming for ~10 minutes!
We did a family workout for our Easter celebration.
4:4, 30 rounds
24:17 with 30# assist
Fun to do as a family. We will have to make it a tradition.

Happy Easter he is risen

30 Muscle Ups for time

120 Dips ~ depth could have been better
Partitioned 12 Reps x 10 Rounds
It was fun to grind through this one with Russ's sister, Jen, while Russ was doing 30 MU's...But, it was MUCH more fun to watch Kimmie do her WOD ~ Stellar performance...How does a body do that? And in such a little amount of time?? Just wondering...
First sub-10 time ever. Beat previous best by nearly 2.5 minutes. All from the dead hang.
Rx'd 4:30 *pb by over 1min*
19 more days till the qualifier
no rings so...
30 muscle ups on pull up bar:
Rest day for me folks, I decided to listen to the old bones.
I'll be going to church today, watching my kids hunt for eggs and enjoying the sunshine. I'm also gonna stuff my face.
Happy Easter to my Crossfit family, see you all tomorrow :-)
Bingo - love the GHP!!! We all need a little of that now and again. I love it when i've had a totally slammed day at work, go straight into mommy/homework mode and my kids will bust out with something random at supper that sets us all off into laughing fits. The door to happiness opens quickly!! And darn that ABBA and their silly songs that stay in my head and catch myself dancing to at the strangest moments!!!
Se*y Pony - go get it, gurl!
Fit Mom's Mom - AWESOME JOB!! i was wondering how i was going to partition this. Yours is a good plan!

Happy Resurection Xfiters
30 Muscle-ups for time
6:31 (PR from few months ago is 5:55)
did 6 reps+1+2+1...singles to the end.
time at 15 reps was 2:26 (in the 5:55 PR time @ 15 reps was 2:45)
Got my C2-rower a few days ago.
Did Jackie about a week ago for the first time in 6:32 and
yesterday in 6:14 (PR). Great WOD. I don't know if I have ever
seen it as a WOD the past 1.5 years I've been doing CF.
# 4 Herm, come on. No one arm MU's? ;) I'm disapointed.
Good luck with the recovery. I always enjoy your posts.
# 41 Chris, congrats on the sub 5 min!
# 56 Bingo, thank you for the Tiger quote and for your whole post.
# 82 Jacob, Impressive time (4:26). How did you brake it up? About how long rests in between sets?
# 108 Mike, congrats on PR and great time.
Happy Easter everyone.
I was planning on break the muscle-ups but then i said what ygr hell let's do max reps bad idea i hurt my shoulder next time i'll break in sets i think is wise to break un sets my shoulder is SORE!!!
120 PU, 60 ring dips. Good time. Worked with a buddy so might have been a little faster. Had a GREAT time. Can remember doing this so long ago and not feeling nearly this good afterwards and taking much longer. Booyah!!
120 pullups/120 dips
I don't know why I have such a hard time with muscle ups.
I watch vids on them and spend lots of time trying them.
I mean I can do 26 unbroken pull ups (could do more but that's the most counted) and lots of dips but I have a mental block of connecting the two. URRGHHHH!!!
47 - 6' - 210#
Still working on the turning out at the bottom of multiples.
as rx'd 7:19 ten seconds slower than last time.
WAY COOL PICTURE!
CFWUx3 (no pull ups round 2 and 3)
WOD not as prescribed: did 30 bar muscle ups gymnastics kip style- shoulder still is not fond of ring work.
TIME: 3:01 last time this WOD was posted I did the same thing and had time of 6:30
Worked on "real" bar muscle ups afterwards~no swing like in a gymnastics kip and nailed 2 of them for the first time.
I don't have rings so I'll be doing the 120 pull-ups and 120 dips version of this.
However, I have a question for the experienced Crossfitters in the gallery here. Is it better to alternate, go back and forth with the two exercises accumulating reps? Or is it advised to knock out all of the pull-ups and then move on to the dips? Also, why would it be better to do it one way versus another? Any theories?
Quick question for everyone on running.
When I run like I did today I get this pain in my uppper ankle, lower shin. It is kind of on the outside of my leg. It is not shin splint. This doesnt happen all the time but when it does I can not run for very long without resting. Any ideas on what this is and some suggestions on what I can do to prevent it.
Got my first muscle-up at the Level 1 cert @ Monclair in April...just a month later and I can finally say....
Tore my wrist apart...but worth every second!!!
CFWU then end of wk 6 5x5 (BS, Bench, Row) then WOD:
30 bar MU's, some kipping:
guessing 6-8min, apparently i missed hitting start on my timer...slower than last time, but that is expected after the rough 5x5.
Muscle ups with a kip and almost full extension but not a full lock out. 7:52 (pr of 5 minutes)
Worked on deadhang lockout after. Next time I need to do full lock out.
did 16 on rings and 14 on bar.
my goal was to be able to hit em all on the rings regardless of time. i just couldn't kip up after #16.
11:43 today, 1:04 slower than last time.
I attribute that change to difference in attitude. Last time my goal was to not fail any, so I made sure to take the necessary rest between sets. This time, I was focussed on beating my last time, so went faster than I should have and starting failing, which just wore me out faster and slowed me down even more.
cute box video
13:58 as RX'd
last time 23:45... getting faster!
Just came back from a long run around my town. It was really tough for me, took about an hour running up hills and freaking potholes. Form went to sh*t towards the end. I also wore an EMPTY weighted vest so people would think I was hardcore.
120 PUs and 120 bar dips
Got my first muscle up on the rings today!

I kept working on it and watching the videos on FAQS and AgainFaster; then I got one. After I became frustrated by not getting another. Gave it some time and went at it again a little later and got more. :) Kept on going until I got 10...wanted 15 but felt very taxed. I will do more later.
I love this!!!!!

as RX'd: 5:27... got stuck on last rep for 35secs. PR is 4:53. I couldve beaten it. damnnnn!!!!
CFT was 480 today 500!
BS (185) 185
SP (90) 95PR
DL (205) 220PR
Video referee called my 190 squat shallow. I concur. The call stands- no back squat PR...today. SP & DL - I earned those nasty ones!
last time 26:02..today 23:52.
Hours later, I am still wheezing. I cannot easily take a good deep breath, and when I can, my lungs whistle. Took my inhaler plenty of time before, but I guess my intensity was so high, that it was too much on my lungs?
When I asked my dr why this happens sometimes, he said asthmatics should not be working out this hard.
Uh, Jackie Joyner Kersee? Greg Louganis? The only way I am in their company is that we have exercise induced asthma LOL
Decrease intensity. Silly rabbit. Like *thats* going to happen. I am JUST gettin' outta the CrossFit gates!
I think I'm going to start jotting down when/if I have an attack in my workout log, so I can better track this and whup it.
four at a time
Awesome flag pic
To all seals, all military, police, and firefighters - thank you for always being there and being ready
120 pullups/ 120 dips (no assist!)
That's a very cool photo. Nicely composed and very crisp. I wish I could get myself horizontal like that. One day, perhaps. The sun is backlighting the whole scene, but the subject is clearly visible. Is the extra lighting coming from a flash on the camera, or somewhere nearby?
60 pull ups
10:32 as rx'd, way better than last times 20:15!
As rx'd, took entirely too long. First muscle-ups since October; glad that I could at least still do them. Cranked out the first 10 in 5's, and then lost all semblance of control of my kip and was stuck doing the rest in singles.... long singles.
Know I'll get it better next time. Took more than 10 minutes longer than last time in October.
#117 thanks Lahti
#167 David, Great time mate! beat me by 3 minutes!

after a 6 month hiatus, i'm back.
last time i did this workout was about a year ago.
12:00 (15:30 last time)
Just a late thank you to Jennifer for her lovely explanation of corn yesterday. It saddens me because happiness used to be defined by stopping by pickup trucks with their bed full of sweet corn knowing that I was eating grilled chicken and corn on the cob that night. Ah, lovely childhood memories... I shall move on though. As Pat mentioned at the cert in Milton, I wish nutrition wasn't a factor and that I could eat anything that tasted good and still make gains, but unfortunately that is not the case. Good luck to everyone with MUs today, I will not be joining you.
Grab the Kool Aid and GET SOME!
Started drinking to early. I'll make it up tomorrow, so much for rest day.
10 muscle ups and 20 muscle up progressions about 21 min's
@ the Globo:

14:10 as rx'd (PR)
pullups: 10:30 (slower than PR by 00:05)
dips: 11:00 (PR by 00:38)
9:45 as RX'd. 3-4 misfires after rep #23. Last time was 10:58. m/34/6'1/210
Accidentally didn't time it. Subbed 4 pullups, 2 jumping ring dips per muscle up. 25 rounds then hands tore too much to continue. Felt strong. If hands hadn't torn, could have finished! Estimate 25 minutes.
30 Jumping muscle-ups
OMG I am weak!!!
did 120 pullups, 120 dips
Just heard our US Navy rescued the American Captain by killing 3 of 4 terrorists. Nice work guys, we are all proud of you. Thank you for your service and professionalism to all our military.
30 dead hang bar MUs: 10:23
I just figured out how to do these on the first of the month and haven't been able to do more than 6 or 7 in a day, so this was freaking amazing. And ugly. But it happened!!
Then after about 15 mins of DU work and 15 mins of standing around and I decided for s&g's I'd do 120 ring dips and 120 pull ups too: 13:15.
I think this is how I would feel of someone caste my arms in cement. Hopefully I'll maintain enough dexterity to enjoy my dinner :)
16:00 (had to run from one station to another but that just means more work and more fun haha)
time = 6:45 (PR by 52 seconds)
Man, I can tell I need work on my dips - definitely the limiting factor today. Started with sets of 10 each, got to 40 and had to go down to 5 each. At the end, I was struggling to string 5 pullups and even a couple dips. Last 5 dips were 1-1-1-1-1. It's now over an hour later, and I could barely comb my hair.
First time as rx'd, missing a chunk of my hand now though..it was worth it!!
for the first time...
Gym was closed, but i was smart enough to bring the rings home praying that Coach would deliver the gift of 30 Muscle Ups...and so it was!
Did this at the "Kiddie Park" (right were i belong) and set up on a swing set. It was very cold and I had a swing chain hitting me in the head every time i came up, but it was worth it!
A mom playing with her little daughter even asked, "What are you training for? That looks hard!" and i got to reply, "For fun" :)
Love those moments! Okay i'm done rambling, let's get some DQ...
did this yesterday- did 27 muscleups in 9:45, tried to finish but my wrists ripped pretty bad. Getting married June 20 and am going to attempt to do a 70 day muscle-up challenge, hitting 70 on the day I get married.
Did run/burpee/row WOD, details there;
16:49 PR by nearly 2:00
(using small white band assist. Improved over 9:11 on 2/2/09)
(not to get disappointed!! No white band on pullups, only on ring dips. 120 each)
First time as rx'd. 14:10. Lots of fails. Taped the wrists well though and only had one little scrape.
120 Pull-ups/Dips 19:58(1:46 over my previous PR of 18:12)
I was O.K. for the first five dead hang MUs, but then reality came crashing down like a ton of bricks and I had to lower the rings to do jumping MUs. Heck, by the end of the WoD the MUs looked like I fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down - progressively worse.
Life is my sport, and CrossFit is how I play it better.
Did about 20 "jumping" muscle ups. Worked on progression and form. Finished with 30 ring pull ups and 30 ring dips. Not timed.
sub M/U transitions
seated M/U 60 reps
I got creative with 10 feet of arborist rope, 1 and 1/4 inch pvc pipe, and duct tape to make a rather effective ring replacement.
I was pretty stoked because I've never used rings before, and thought i was gonna have to sub pushups for dips, and MU's were outa the question.
Anyways i did some MU progression and actually got 1 legitimate MU!
after that I did 120 bar pullups and and 60 pvc and rope dips in 22:56
All I have to say about ring dips is WOW. My chest and tri's were cooked!
120 pull ups
The wife and I dont have rings at home yet so subbed 120 kipping pullups 120 dips. Finally hit what we've been waiting for...finishing with the exact same time!
Jeana F/29/5'3"/135 10:22
Rob M/30/6'2"/210ish 10:22
Finally starting to catch up with my wife on the Gymnastics...I guess I should have listened to her when she told me to quit powerlifting and staring at myself in the mirror and start Crossfit. Oh well 8 months of crossfit and going strong!!
Did this 10 days ago with a time of 11:14
Today - 10:04 and I failed to make the 30th rep twice, still about 90 seconds off PR
No rings so:
Time: 16:15 pr, last time was 27:46 (pr by 11:31!!)
Warm-up: jump rope - 100 single-unders + 50 double-unders + 10 triple-unders; CFWU (minus pull-ups & dips) 3x15; 135# bench press, 20 reps.
Used an assistance band to help w/strict muscle-ups, due to a L-shldr injury. Still, this was painful for my shldr. Now I feel like a stooge for pushing through it. I know better!
10 pull-ups (strict for rounds 1 - 3, jumping on round 4)
10 dips (strict)
1/4 mile treadmill run 1% incline (last round 4/10 mile - wanted to get to TE 3.0)
I set off on a 7:30 pace (1 rep every 15 seconds). The ring height in my garage gym forces me to bend my knees to get to full extension of my arms. I had 5 misses today.
Last effort was on higher rings and I had zero misses (03/01/09-8:53pr).
Still felt good about the WOD and I have been looking forward to this one.
#173 Tom C - Yeah the sun presented us with quite a challenge to get that pic. As soon as i saw that pole I knew I needed to get that shot in but the photographer (troydilportphotography.com) was unsure if he could do it as he didn't have the right equipment. We tried flashes but they completely blanked out the sky and sun in the background; the result was just to take the shot with the horrible backlighting and then to use some creative photo shop skills to brighten me up on the front side. The difference between the original and this one really is incredible.
As for being able to do the flag, just keep practicing and working those oblique muscles. For starters try kicking up to an almost verticle, handstand type position and while holding the knees tucked to the chest, slowly lower yourself down while trying to hold steady at horizontal. Gradually work on extending the legs out further and over time you'll get it.
Oh and thanks to all the fit mom's out there who've complimented the shot, you guys are an inspiration!
Kinda cool, I just did this workout on impulse without checking the site and it happened to coincide.
7:21 as Rx'd (PR)
Would've been under 7 but failed on the last frikken one...twice. Fun workout nonetheless.
Happy Easter all around!
I did all 30 mu in ~30 min, but I used my feet on the back of a chair to stabilize/help during the transition and help me up if I could not make the dip.
cheating, I know but I wanted to do them.
As Rx'd w/rings hung off a locust tree limb. Great day for an outside WOD!
120 kipping pullups
120 ring dips
...woops, that photographers site was simply www.troydilport.com

7:00 as RX'd
great resurrection day WOD.
First time as Rx'd.
Took a long time and it was 30 singles. But I did it.
He is risen!!! Amen.
Bar MU's, 6" platform - 6:45
7:55 Still can't say Rx'ed. Still hanging the rings from the pullup station on the cable crossover machine. So can't do a full hang on the bottom.
+ 1000m row 3:15:5 (PR by 2.5 seconds)
+ Ring Dips
Almost 2 min slower than my PR.. but I did turn 21 this weekend so I think that's expected.
few days off Went to Vegas Baby!
made up todays on a park jungle gym
As rx'd 11:52. My PR is just under 10 min; however, I am fairly happy because I have had a nagging shoulder issue for the last week. I'll see tomorrow if this workout was a good idea or not.
wasn't able to get all the way, however my form was pretty crummy...i need to find a partner
went for the pull ups and dips instead
Pull ups - 8 sets of 10
Dips - 8 sets of 10
5'8", 180lbs, 39 years old.
I scaled the workout. 60pu 60 dips
Pretty stiff and sore from yesterday.
Took a long WU: 2000m row at easy-mod pace, burg WU w/ weighted PVC and bar.
Practiced ring dips. Jumping first to work on stabilization, then band assisted.
Four sets of band assisted pull ups.
Bench Press - WU sets then 170x3x5
WOD as prescribed, time=4:32
As Rx'd 30 muscle ups
22 min new PR needed tape
Grip big issue today!!!!
Excited to be doing multiples
Without stopping !!!
I think that subbing 120 ring dips and pullups for 30 muscleups is a poor trade. I would much rather see a trainee do chest to bar pullups (perhaps 60) and deep deep ring dips. In fact, I would rather them just do 30 jumping muscleups or earlier part of the muscled-up learning progression. Folks who can't do the muscle up need to practice the skill much more than they need to fry themselves with high reps of pullups and dips. They are not the same skill. I would propose that folks who can't do the RXed version do the following:
30 reps of whatever version of the muscle-up progression they can do based on their skill level. Followed by 30 explosive chest to bar pullups and 30 deep ring dips in any order. These are strength skills we are practicing here. Mindlessly throwing reps at the problem is not going to open the door to muscleups.
Well I had a girlie breakdown today!! No mu's for me yet so I did 10 pu's 10 dips( rings) 10 rounds
I made it through almost 5 rounds and my hand ripped ouch! I was doing so good I was kipping with no band on half of all the pu's. I came in the house sat on the couch and started feeling sorry for myself. Then I proceeded to start eating the kids Easter candy LOL but I pulled it together and decided I wasn't a quitter and finished the workout my hands were hurting so bad!
He is alive!
Keep up all the hard work all you hot Crossfit ladies
120/120 in 16:59 -- 1:07 PR!!!
Last time I did it in rounds of 6/6. This time was 7/7's. The pullups were all unbroken, but the Dips were a mess - halfway through I was down to 2s and 3s!
30 MUs 4 TIME
Not happy about the time but first time actually being able to do this work out. Happy WIth that.
60 pu / 100 dips = 11:15
30 Jumping pull-ups 5 min but I didn't rush
Then had fun with my new MIR weighted vest. Started @ 55# and did max pull-ups, (start was 1 and ended with sets of 5) I kept getting back on the rings after I dropped 3#s. So that makes 19 sets and I estimate >60 pull-ups in total.
Followed this with weighted and un weighted deep dips on the rings with the vest as well. Very Fun.
Matt (comment 256); That's why you scale to ability. But what do I know I've only been to 3 CF classes. (I've done this sub before and it is a great motivator to get the MU, and not do the sub again) Cheers.
90 pu 90 ring dipd
30 rounds of 4 & 4 is a good way to do it.
#146 Spider Chick ~ Amen! How proud you must be...
Many thanks to the USN and especially the Seals ~
~ from a former Air Force brat - Dad (now 84) is Lt. Col.(Ret) I hope to be as active and fit as he is when I'm 84...Let's see, that's only 26 more years of CF'ing!!
60 jumping muscle-ups: 14:21
AS RX'd 11:03 L-Sit to Muscle up
I just returned from the Olympic Weight Lifting Certification in Edmonton at CF Alberta/Spark Sport Conditioning.
The information passed on over the weekend will greatly improve both my coaching and my lifting.
It was impressive to watch Sage, Alex, Ashley and Erin lift on Saturday at lunch time.
A huge thanks to Coach B and his staff.
28:59 doing 30 assisted muscle ups. Starting from the ground and using my toes to push through the transition.
120 pull-ups blue assist band
90 ring dips with toes touching ground behind.
eric gohl--killer man, nice work
so after learning the muscle up 3 weeks ago i really was afraid of this.. i just took my time and chalked the heck out of my hands.
30 muscleups on the bar
Substituted a jungle gym for the rings.
I did them on the monkey bars at the playground. Kinda weird because the bars weren't straight across. It was more like grabbing onto two horizontal U-shapes. Felt good.
subbed with 120 pullups and 120 bar dips
21:57 (PR by 7:33)
12 sets of 10 pullups all unbroken
12 sets of 10 bar dips broken all kinds of ways
Any WOD with MU's makes me sick to my stomach, 'cuz it's really the only movement I CAN'T do yet. I can't even do ring dips now - my left shoulder hasn't been right since that WOD of 5 Ring dips, 10 pullups 15 situps about a month ago. AHHHHH! And the worst part is whenever I get frustrated and try to do jumping MU's and I can hear that crackling ripping sound in my left shoulder. Anger and frustration. Not sure what I need, if it's rest, rehab or surgery and then the former.
Did some ring pullups and assisted MU's and assisted ring dips. did about 30 pulls and 90 dips. Left shoulder pain.
7:51, 30 assisted MU's, I suck
as rx'd 1st time!
had a few delays: after 5th mu, got a cut on my arm; 25th rep, ripped some skin off my hand
Big pr! A bit less assistance with the yellow band. This time mounted 30" bolow lower edge of rings. Last time was mounted 28" below. Cut the time almost in half.
Next time graduate to the black band and mount it 24" below.
got two in a row without touching the ground. First time ever.
6 as rx'ed with a few failed attempts
all others with toes on jump box for assistance.
As rx'd: 16:40
For the first time ever I did over five in the beginning, just to see what would happen. Unfortunately that pretty much zapped me. Had to do it in sets of two-to-one reps after that...bummer.
cfwu x 1
4 ring dips

As Rx'd 12:51 pr done on 13 APR 09
Hoping to have it down into the single digits soon.
1 year to the day that I left MOSUL. Great way to celebrate.
Did this last night:
Did 30 STRICT muscle ups for time - absolutely no kipping and wrists turned out at the bottom.
12:45 - compared to 3:26 last time I did 30mu with kipping. Clearly this was a different feeling workout. Much more stress on the arms!
As rx'd=17 min.
Doing them w/ my rings over the crossmember in my basement. I have to hang with my knees bent. I feel like this is so much harder than when I do them at the football feild over the goal post. I can keep my momentum going when my feet are off the ground, I probably get more out of it this way though.
Also ran 2x400m, 50 ghd's, and 10 heavy trusters.
uugg...stilll dont have rngs in ur brickyard gym to work on muscle ups.....so i modified..
3min jump rope

My shoulders felt the best they have felt in over 1 1/2 years this morning. Actually woke up without any pain. We'll see how they feel now that the 30 mu's are over. Haven't been able to put 30 mu's together in a long time. I'm stoked.
Day #3 of Crossfit male 5'11" 225 28yo
120 Pull-ups (assisted after first 20, I need work)
Haven't been this pumped for workouts since off-season training in college. I LOVE CROSSFIT.
WOD as Rx'd:
One year ago, I couldn't finish this WOD. Today started out doing one every 20 seconds, the last 6 reps I did every 10 seconds. I need to push this a good bit harder next time.
Did 120 dips and pulls...~13 min...compared to 18min last time. :)
as rx'd all muscle ups turned out
30 x muscle ups on my homemade rings
20 MU, 40 bar pullup and 40 bar dips for time of 9:03, gettin the hang of these MU's
did muscle-ups on a bar (no rings), first muscle ups ever!! (4 weeks with crossfit now).
I forgot to start my timer because it took me a few tries to get the first one, but I got all 30 in approximately 38 minutes. Since that was so slow and I need more pull-up work I also did the 120 pull-ups and dips partitioned in 30 sets of 4 each in approximately 28-30 minutes.
did 15 jumping muscle ups then 60 strict pull ups 60 ring dips
Very modified MUs. Sat on my but and pulled myself up with leg assistance for the transition to the dip.

(pr is 4:41)
Haven't done muscle-ups in over 2 months due to a separated shoulder. no pain today. we'll see how I feel tomorrow. began cold and with a different strategy so not sure what all contributed to the sh*tty performance
As rx'd 27:41 (all broken)
**Last time I did this WOD I did my first MU ever and only completed 5 total...I completed this WOD today as rx'd, feeling pretty good about that
Done at crossfit after coaching. Used black rings from knees about one fist above head. 17:57. Good workout.
OK took me 13:22.
to rx'd this do you have chain all 30? I know I couldn't just wondering. I did get all 30 in. I still have problems with decent or rest to start my muscle again. Wrists need to do a little bit of catching up.
Starting from scratch again (again).
Rugby injuries to left hand, elbow, shoulder made this a painful experience.
Had to pull out after 60/60 and 22 min. Next time try sets of 4/4 instead of 10/10.
As always, a Crossfit workout hurts and feels great at the same time.
18 minutes, wide grip pullups at FFC Lakeview
30 Bar Muscle-Ups:
Was at 2:01 after 15 reps, then fatigue hit hard.
Re-taped the bar at the globo, so no hand tears!
Next time maybe try with rings?
120 pullups/120 dips
12 reps x 10 rds

did them on a pull up bar
much easier than doing the old 120pullps and 120dips
"I've heard the 4/4 sub is for a bar and if you do the pull ups and dips on rings, you can do 2/2 sub. Depends what you're going for I guess"
Subbed with 1.5hrs of gymnastics skill work. Can now do unassisted
Hand stands, legless rope climb!

WOD 30 m/ups;
jumping ,m/ups. + 30 extra ,just to rip some more skin off my wrists !even had an audience,thought they were gonnae throw me some fish,like a performing seal !only kiddin !
m/ups ,seem to come and go ???sometimes they're not bad others ,just nowhere near ?? not having anywhere to practice doesnae help.the council gym frown upon the use of them,so i can only hang them up when the gym is empty.

Been slacking a bit on crossfit b/c of sickness and other reasons, but this one felt pretty good. I was surprised I could do so many when I hadn't worked out as much. I did a slower time than last time, but did more actual muscle-ups, more than half, but not much more, haha, had to jump the rest
30 MU's starting from knees and kicking off with toes (broken into et sof 1)- aprox 15 min
Then (untimed and broken). . .
30 ring dips
30 ring pull ups
30 parallel bar dips
30 dead hang pullups
Hey, I am a complete newb to this. Could someone please explain to me what'for time' means?
I checked out the faq but couldn't see it in there.
50 pull ups / 100 dips ~18 min
444 Sam H - It's a race against the clock. Time how long it takes you, record the results, and try to beat it the next time you do that WOD.
120/120 b/c no access to rings
the pull-ups slowed me down. instead of going to failure from the 1st set I decided to do as many sets of 7 and 7 as I could. Then 5 pull-ups and 7 dips until I completed 120 dips, then finished pull-ups. I finished the dips with about 30 pull-ups left to do. Does anyone recommend a different approach?
