100 miles and $46k...nice work Keith!!! You are a hero.

Comment #7 - Posted by: Herm at May 17, 2009 5:17 PM

So I'm new to CF. What is meant by bodyweight bench? I know in the FAQs it says take everything literally. Therefore if I weigh 225 lbs, I should be doing 3 sets of 225 lbs at 30,20,and 10 reps?!? I think I'm strong, but I dont know about that strong- it seems a little crazy!

If that's the case, any suggestions on modifications?

Lastly, a suggested substitute for row because I don't have the machine.

Thanks!

Dang, I hope the fix the rower at our gym!!

Big thanks to everyone involved in the Level 1 over the weekend in Brisbane. Matt Swift did an awesome job in organising and running the Cert.

Big thanks to Coach, Nicole, Pat, Lisa Ray, Lisa Lugo, Tony and the Aussie Crew of Matt, Steve, Zane, Chris, Danny and Kev from Singapore. More knowledge in the head and great prep for the Level 2 in July.

Good times.

Coach - always a pleasure to see you and chat. Hope everything goes well with Lauren and you get back in time.

Comment #11 - Posted by: Carl at May 17, 2009 5:24 PM

Chad #8 - Scale the load on the bench if you have to. Otherwise, if you can bench 225#, then go for it regardless of how long it takes you to complete the WOD. If you don't have a rower, do sumo-deadlift high pulls with 75#. 10 SDHPs is approx equal to 100m.

Comment #12 - Posted by: Steve - CF Ocean City at May 17, 2009 5:36 PM

Comment #8 - Posted by: Chad L at May 17, 2009 5:19 PM

Once you can't do more reps in the set, rest. Keep a total rep count until you get to 30. Once you hit the # of reps, Row the corresponding amount listed. Then get to 20 Bench reps....etc.

Comment #13 - Posted by: Herm at May 17, 2009 5:37 PM

#8 Chad L:

From the FAQs (which you need to go read right now)

3.6. What if I don't have a rowing machine?

Do Sumo Deadlift High Pulls (see exercise page for demo):
If you don't have a rower substitute sumo-dealift high pulls (sdhp) with 45 pounds for men and 30 pounds for women. Take the bar from mid shin to under your chin--"shin to chin."

2K row = 200 sdhp's, 1K row = 100 sdhp's, 500 meter row = 50 sdhp's

Scale the benchpresses back to a weight that will allow you to complete the WOD. Take note of it and see how you do the next time BW Bench comes up.

Welcome to CrossFit!

Comment #14 - Posted by: Pili - CrossFit10/CrossFit O-Zone at May 17, 2009 5:37 PM

Chad L #8

Yup. 225# 60 times. If you can't do that, go lighter, and make note of it in the comments should you come back to this WOD later on.

If you don't have a rower, you can substitute 50 sumo-deadlift high-pulls for every 500m, but I would just run 400m for ever 500m row.

Comment #15 - Posted by: ZachM_PantherCF_71''/190 at May 17, 2009 5:39 PM

They brought this one back from the dead. Almost 3 years ago was the last time this WOD was posted.

I wear a 20# weight vest for the duration. 40:30 later I crawl to my truck pull myself into the seat, curse the clutch and barely make it home. Once again I am humbled by coach and I LOVE IT!

You can always look under START HERE! Section and use BrandX Scaled Workout then choose a weight you feel comfortable with. No one can make that decision for you, just make note of your weight selection so you can track your progress WHICH you Will progress. Enjoy

Comment #28 - Posted by: Kenny 36/M/5'10/195 at May 17, 2009 6:44 PM

Attended the Level I in Milwaukee. Drew, Jolie, Rudy, Joe, Chuck, and Boz decimated us on the workouts, drills, and skills. It was a blast. Lectures were to the point and left plenty of time for targeted questions. All concepts were explained clearly and as a team this combo made the information easy to absorb and fun to tackle.

More time with rope, muscle-up, snatch, and kipping drills would have been preferred though I realize there is a ton of material to cover. No doubt putting 50+ people through the paces makes things tight on time.

Thanks to Ryan Atkins for hosting: rockin' facility!

Worth every dime!

#34-

I am a rower and can tell you this, typically for a female every 12 strokes equals 100m; however, this is variable based on your strength and how many strokes per minute you take, but that should be a good gauge.

500m ~ 60 strokes
1000m ~ 120 strokes
2000m ~ 240 strokes

Hope that helps.

The content was excellent, I recommend if you haven't done one, everyone get along to do a cert if possible.

Comment #46 - Posted by: s'more at May 17, 2009 8:51 PM

28/m/79kg

Half volume:

Subbed:
- 20kg SDHP for row (1 per 10m)
- All bench presses at 60kg except for rep 1 to 7 at 80kg in first set at rep 1 to 5 in last set.

ie.
25 20kg SDHP
7 80kg BP, 8 60kg BP
50 20kg SDHP
10 60kg BP
100 20 kg SDHP
5 80kg BP

13:44

Really screwed up recovery over weekend - didn't eat enough, didn't sleep enough and the game of rugby tipped it over the edge. In warmup, it's apparent body hasn't fully recovered from last week as same mid-back area isn't as supple.

80kg felt *very* heavy in the first round, enough to have safety concerns. But body seems to have picked up during course of WOD. Feel very lathargic after, don't want to move too much.

Comment #47 - Posted by: pz at May 17, 2009 8:57 PM

Damn won't have access to a rower all this week, gonna have to do 350 sdhps it looks like...

Comment #48 - Posted by: john23/5'7/174# at May 17, 2009 9:02 PM

Just saw the videos....nice! I have the same choices on base in Miramar as well....dang shame.

A little food for thought......

from FAQ:

"What is a burpee"

To perform a Burpee with a pushup, you will begin in a squat position with hands on the floor in front of you (1). Kick your feet back, while simultaneously lowering yourself into the bottom portion of a pushup. Your arms will not be extended. (2). Immediately return your feet to the squat position, while simultaneously pushing "up" with your arms. You will perform a pushup as you return your feet to the squat position (3). *Leap up as high as possible from the squat position* (4). Repeat, moving as fast as possible.

The only way to do them...

Get up there...high in the sky!

A word of warning for anyone considering subbing in Sumo Deadlift High Pulls. Last time I did 200 SDHP's in a single workout I could barely move my arms for a week, seriously. This workout would be calling for 350 so be careful

Comment #50 - Posted by: Crawf

Probably not using your hips explosively enough if your arms were that sore. Likely you turned it into an upright row with a knee bend.

As you get the bar above the knees, drive the hips up into the bar and let momentum bring the bar above the nipples. You shouldn't be holding the barbell up at the clavicle AT ALL. As soon as the bar is up to the correct height, return it back to the mid shin.

This was tough but satisfying! If I had a vote I would like to see more benching in WOD's. For me it is a movement I need to work more often to be able to use my BW for more reps.

Next time I'll try more pounds on the bench and we should have a rower in our gym soon.

Sincere thanks to everyone involved in running the Brisbane Cert at Matt Swift's CrossFit Brisbane.
Lucky I don't live in the same town 'cause everytime I meet Matt it hurts!!

It was a seriously inspiring and motivating learning experience. Working out on your own doesn't prepare you at all for the intensity of a hyped-up box full of XFit maniacs.

As a result, my clients got a dose of CrossFit inspiration this morning...I loved it...nearly as much as they did for sure.

Thanks Coach for sharing your time with us. Your no nonsense wisdom is enlightening. Cheers.

Would 95# shoulder press be a reasonable sub (bw 160#)?

I could do ringdips for bw benchpress, but that seems too easy.

Any suggestions?

Milwaukee Level 1 cert: Thanks to everyone for a great weekend. Crossfit is excellent on so many levels, my favorite being the quality of the people who are drawn in to the community. The trainers are top notch performers, educators, and overall people. Big thanks to Andrew Thompson, Boz, Jolie Rudy, Joe and Chuck. Thanks to Crossfit Milwaukee for hosting - best of luck with your new space!
One suggestion: I really wish we had more time to do the specific skills - rope climbing, muscle ups, pull ups, and snatch - that we hit on Sunday. At the very least, it would be helpful to provide an additional handout - perhaps personalized by the trainers on their specific coaching cues for each skill. There was no time to take notes, and each trainer had such perfect coaching cues it was a bummer to get home and not have those on hand to review. A one sheet handout with specific personal cues from the trainers present at the cert is a much better keepsake IMHO than a certificate.
I soaked up every minute of the cert. After a 7 hour drive home I can't frickin walk today either. YAY Crossfit! Thank you all very much!

350 SDHPs are a nightmare. You can't pace yourself because you have to open up the hip exlosively to avoid arm pull and core to extremity violation.

If I had enough room in my apartment, I wouldn't hesitate a second to shell out the money for a concept 2 rower.

95# SP is about 70% from my max SP, the same as bodyweight BP is about 70% of my max. BP. Partitions looked pretty similar. Of course power output is somewhat lower on the lighter weight SP compared to BP.

Just got back from the Milwaukee Cert..what a great time! If you you have even the slightest interest in Crossfit, ATTEND!! It's great to see athletes with such a passion for the sport aspect and the lifestyle. Thanks to Jolie, Chuck, Rudy, Boz, Joe, and Andrew. You all were great. Only thing I'd change, smaller cert class. Thanks

Comment #87 - Posted by: Anthony at May 18, 2009 6:09 AM

Nice work Graham Spagnola (1st) and Brandon Massie (5th) at the Midwest Qualifier. You two will represent CrossFit Troy well at the Cross Fit Games. It's a privilege to train with you and to also be trained by you, but it's best to be able to call you good friends and to say your futures look bright.

Also, well done to Chastity Slone for her 1st place victory. Nice work, and train hard. Now it's not only us saying, "Wow, girl got game."

It will be great to see 3 competitive athletes from Troy Ohio join the many others at the Games.

Used 155#s on BPs, did SDPHs instead of rows. Had to switch from 45# to 25# for the last set of 200 SDHPs (my legs were still killing me from yesterday's WOD!).

day after the PT test, and no Concept 2 rowers on the FOB.

pack-ish scaling, SDHP & 1/2 BW BP

50 SDHP/30 BP, 100 SDHP/20 BP, 50 SDHP/10 BP

Thanks so much to the Milwaukee Cert Team!!

Drew, Chuck, Boz, Jolie, Joe & Rudy... you were all very helpful and insightful.

Drew- great job running the show, getting us started and wrapping things up... can't be an easy job with 55 amp'd up strangers!

Chuck & Boz- What engaging speakers you two are... I think you could hold the crowd's attention on any subject, let alone the ones that you've mastered so well. The lectures were always very well structured, on-point, and entertaining.

Jolie, Joe and Rudy- thanks for the hard (and fast) work in the break-out sessions, running through the moves in a complete yet concise manner, and zeroing in on the common flaws that hold us back.

Can't wait to head back up to Milwaukee next month for the Oly cert!

INSURANCE QUESTION

I am in the final stages of finishing my garage gym. I am planning on getting a small business license and training out of it this summer.
Any suggestions for an insurance company that is CrossFit and garage gym friendly? I am a member of the RRG but that will not cover building, equipment, ect... Shoot me an e-mail or post with ANY advise.
Thanks

Just attented the Milwaukee Cert and have never been more proud and enthused about being part of the Crossfit community. The trainers exceeded all expectations I had. They are amazing athletes and very inspirational. All the participants at the Cert brought the same encouragement and team effort that I love about the Crossfit community. I would have loved to spend more time on the skill work sessions that were done on Sunday. The trainers provided amazing cues during this time and it would be helpful to be able to practice with the trainers for a longer time period on those skills. Again, Thanks for an awesome weekend and a ton of information to go home with.

Comment #113 - Posted by: SERGIO at May 18, 2009 7:28 AM

Loved the Milwaukee cert. My favorite part, other than the team Fran workout on day, had to have been seeing the coaches do work during the lunch hours on both days. Makes me so much more pissed that I won't be able to go watch the Games (somebody stream it!). Joe, from now on any time I'm about to quit on a wod, I'm going to think back to how you didn't give up on that last rope climb.

I share the same sentiments as Julie and Kristen about the skill work cues -- too little time spent on them. I'm going to have a hard time thinking: "what did Jolie say to do at the bottom of a snatch?" when it comes time for me to train someone on it because it was almost glazed over. It would help if we spent less time on things like nutrition, programming, etc because honestly, those things are in the handout and we can read that whenever. Fix cues have to be shown and demo-ed, and it would have been a much more worthwhile subject to spend more time on.

Nonetheless, it was a great experience and I hope to attend more certs in the future.

Just finished the San Diego Cert - thanks Greg, Josh, Stefan, Jimi and all the others who made it a great weekend. My legs aren't as thankful, but they will recover. Excellent coverage on the material. The workouts kicked my ass, but also inspired me to push myself harder. I just wish it were one more day, so that we could have worked more on some of the other skills - snatch, kip pullups, etc. Thanks again.

Good WOD today, I had not benched press in awhile. Was curious to see how I would do, which was better than I thought.

CFWU x 2
195# x 16 reps(forgot to put 5 more on)
185# x 14 reps(bar got stuck to my chest, so I decided to drop a few pounds)
160# for the remainder of sets, my arms felt like jello

Subed rower for SDHP 45# 50,100,and 200 reps was retarded, wish I had a rower. Thank you for rest days.

First time ever rowing.
500M - just over 2 minutes
1000M - just over 4 minutes
2000M - just over 8 minutes

Bench Press - Weighed 183 with shoes on, went 185 for the set.
Tried to do the reps (30- 5,5,4,4,3,3,2,2,1,1), then drop off the highest number for the next round. By the middle of the 20 round, that went out the window, though.

Wanted to break 40 minutes, but failed on the final rep 3 times. Tough workout.

I think the best part was simply listening to the cues you gave to correct our form. a lot of the information in the cert i've heard from journal articles and videos, but being able to experience the coaching aspect in person was priceless for me.

As part of the Milwaukee Level 1 Cert I wanted to thank Chuck, Drew, Rudy, Joe, Jolie, and Boz on a fantastic job! What an amazing team of professionals and athletes! As speakers you commanded your subject matter, engaged the audience and answered every conceivable question. As coaches you were inspirational.
From a course perspective I wouldn't change anything. The material, and how it was presented was excellent. The drills were very informative and at the proper level of detail. There was alot of material to cover over 2 days. One minor suggestion would be to break the gymnastic skills session into smaller breakouts that are offered over 'working' lunches or post workouts. Tho, I am not sure how you could fit everything into time allotted.
Also a BIG thank you to everyone from Milwaukee Crossfit who helped things go so smoothly. Ryan, you have a great facility and an outstanding team!

The level 1 cert in San Diego was everything I'd hoped it would be and more. Thanks so much to CrossFit San Diego and all the trainers and coaches we had the privilege to learn from! You guys have such knowledge and an incredible knack for being able to share it in a way that it could be understood and immediately applied. Andy spoke with such captivation and clear, concise wording; Rachel was a true inspiration to all of us females; Josh was a ridiculous example of efficient movement - I'm stoked I got his cleans on video to see what it really means to not waste an ounce of energy in a movement; Stephan's experience and sincere interest in our "getting" what he was try to explain/fix in us was so appreciated; Greg's energy and enthusiasm showed me how CrossFitting can bring your whole world up a notch, and Jimi threw out seemingly simple cues that I've been searching for since I started which made and will continue to make a real and lasting difference. That's only the beginning of what these coaches did for us, this weekend surpassed my expectations of the experience I've looked forward to for so long. Thanks guys, I can't wait to put it into practice (once I can walk again, that is)!

Crossfit newbie - second attempt at a WOD

Used 135lbs for bench. Pretty light on the bench but I didn't have a spotter.

26:37 (this time includes 4:30 I had to wait to get on a rowing machine between the 2nd & 3rd rounds which sucked - actual exercise time was 21:37)

Hell of a workout!

Just got done with the Level 1 Cert in Milwaukee. Loved it!! It was everything I hoped it to be and more. The instructors were outstanding in their delivery, knowledge, and were very receptive to answering questions. I agree with an earlier comment about the skill break outs on Sunday. It would be nice to have a handout or a page in the manual with some teaching cues - similar to the 9 lifts already in the manual - that give cues and teaching progressions for the kip pullup, rope climb, muscle up, and snatch. Thanks for everything.

Not looking forward to it after reading the posts- yikes! I've never rowed that much in one wod! Save the lunges/box j/pullups for tomorrow....

Row 500m
20x 80lb bp,
row 1000m
10x 80lb bp
row 1000m

Someone took my workout paper I left on my loaded bar, so I had to partially guess what was there and refill the bar in the first round.

Thanks to Crossfit Milwaukee and an outstanding team of trainers: Andrew, Jolie, Boz, Chuck, Rudy and Joe. I would recommend a Level 1 cert to anyone intersted in Crossfit. I learned so much this weekend I can't wait to continue to work on all aspects of my training. I did a modified Team NFC North with my students today. 200m run, 120 sit-ups, 200m run, 60 push-ups(yes, chest to the ground), 200m run. Thanks again.

29:03 - not as Rx'd. Used 45# dumbell and (please don't crucify me) a swiss ball.

Globo won't let me bring a bar or bench near the rowers and they frown when I run (read as stumble and pant) across the gym from rowers to weights. God-forbid they move a rower for me!

Regardless, at 1700m into round 3, I almost lost it; I wanted nothing more than to stop rowing and start screaming obscenities at the rower. Instead, I pulled it together and finished strong.

This WOD is a gut-check for certain.

Don't know why, but this one really beat me up. 135lbs was the right weight, had to re rack bar 3x for 30, 2x for 20, and was just able to punch out the last 10. I was gassed on the rowing. Did 500M in ~1:55, 1000 was a bit over 2 min pace and 2000 was about a 2:12 pace.

The C2 and the bench are pretty far apart in the gym, so that added a little artificial extra rest (and time). I’m also slow at getting in and out of the foot straps.

Me: 42yo/M/5'10"/174lbs/10.5%BF

Warm Up: Walking Diane 6:41 (With Video) a five minute break followed by:

WOD: Rowing and Body Weight Bench Press 46:39

Rowing: Subbed SDHP 50,100,200. Very nice sub. The first 50 took me 1:35 which is right in where I do a 500 meter row. the 100 SDHP's were much longer than my usual 1000 meter row and I broke it into sets of 40,30,30. The 200 SDHP's were brutal and it crushed me. The last several sets of these I had to break into 15's and 10's

175lb Bench Press: 30,20,10. I broke these into sets of between 6 and 2 at a shot. Bench press is my personal goat but they are getting better.

Cool Down: One Victory Bar Muscle Up :-)

Oh Brother. Doing walking Diane and this one together was amazing. I subbed the rowing for SDHP's because I have never done this sub and it looked tougher and it was tougher than the row, very nice. I have never had to pul over to the side of the rowing machine, ever. But I did fall onto the floor on several occasions on the SDHP's.

I have done walking Diane twice in the last three days, and I will post the video today or tomorrow and I'll put the link on this post and on the Diane WOD post.

I enjoyed working out with my lady Lysa today and she was the person taping the Walking Diane effort today, she's the best! :-)

Have Fun, Train Hard,

I attended the Level One Cert in Milwaukee. It was an incredible and humbling experience. Just when you think you are getting good at some of the most basic lifts, you get your head spun and learn it absolutely and undoubtedly the correct way. It is a beneficial investment in oneself as well as in others as we work to make our communities more fit through the magical movements of CrossFit.

As a Firefighter, I highly recommend this to all of my brothers and sisters out there. I truly believe it will help save lives (mine, our own, or others) if presented with that challenge. It solidifies that "doer" instinct that we have and that aggressive mentality to "get the job done".

Thank you to Drew, Joe, Chuck, Jolie, Rudy, and Boz! All of you have a wealth of knowledge and experience from which I will draw upon to become better, stronger, and more fit for the greatest job in the world.

Comment #228 - Posted by: J Simmons at May 18, 2009 1:16 PM

I was at the CrossFit Football Certification this weekend and even for the dry run it was the best certification I have ever been 2. The Coaches worked with the athletes in all aspects. The sprint and combine drills clinic was the single best thing I have been in involved with as a coach. The cert taught me how to run and be explosive. It was grounded in football and carried over to sport better than I could have hoped. The level of coaching was what I would expect out of a CrossFit Certification. John, Kstar, Max and Raphael you guys get an A+.

As Rx'd 32:02 using 200lb for bench (scale at home called me 200lbs this morning)

After working out, the scale at the gym said 195. I know I lost water, but I don't think the two scales look at me the same way.... :) Wish I'd have checked at the gym before the workout - using 195 probably could have kept me under 30 minutes. Had to break the sets up many times on the 30 and 20 (4 - 6 sets each). One or two less broken sets, with the associated recovery, could have saved me 2 minutes on this one. Maybe...

24:24 - 85# BP for 25 reps in first set, unable to lift for the 26th rep - changed weight to 75# for all remaining BPs

2000m row time was 9:28(PR)

Comment #238 - Posted by: Nicky at May 18, 2009 1:34 PM

Interesting WOD. I like matching BP with rowing, but pressing heavy weights (at least for me) for time does not work too well. Maybe the 30 year old and under group can recover quicker between sets....

Anyway:

Row 500 meters (1:34)
185# Bench press, 30 reps 10,8,6,5,1
Row 1000 meters (3:46)
185# Bench press, 20 reps 8,4,4,4
Row 2000 meters (7:46)
185# Bench press, 10 reps 7,3

Total time 35:35

Finished Level 1 Cert Course at Crossfit San Diego and what an incredible experience it was. When I walked in Saturday morning, full of nerves, anxiety, fear, etc., I immediately felt welcomed and knew I was exactly where I needed to be.

I want to thank all of the trainers for your dedication, skill and selflessness. You all were extremely informative, helpful and gracious.

The only downer was that there wasn't a third, fourth, and fifth day.

Thanks again.....hope there'll be a Level II there some time in the near future. : )

Crossfit warmup x2+40 pushups.

Did 135lb press; didn't have a spotter.
For the rowing,since I lack a rowing machine, I did 20 reps of 100lb cable rows for 500m. 40 for 1000 and 80 for 2000. That was a pretty good substitute.

Man,I feel like I'm slacking when I need to substitute.

Row: 2000 9:58 (PR)
trying to run back to the BP was NOT fun! lol

My max is 95 on BP for now, so 70lbs for this many reps was tough enough! HOLY COW!!
I thought I was going to be there all day.
only the first few was I able to do more than 5 in a row, then 3's then 2's and ones! UGH. Those of you doing it as rxd for under 30 mins. AMAZING!! Loved to hate this one!!

Sub'd with SDHP.

The barbell came apart doing the SDHP, so this added about 3 minutes of time to repair.

Doing 200 SDHP smoked me. Kept thinking about hip extension which saved (somewhat) the arms.

These past three days have been the closest I've come to visiting with Pukee. Maybe that's also because the temps are now consistantly over 100 degrees.
Gotta love the AOR.

Bench wasn't bad at all; had to break up the first and second sets but it wasn't terrible. This was the first time I did a 2000m row in one sitting; by the time I got to it I had to tackle it in 4 500m ish sprints. Row times were approx:

500m - 1:40
1000m - 3:48
2000m - 7:30-8min; it was hard to tell the timer on the rower paused when I stopped to regroup. Overall this was killer. I never thought seeing 2000m pop up on a small screen could make me so happy.

31/M/170/5'8"

Tried to Rx'd this at the start but found that I wasn't getting the intensity I wanted in the bench so dropped it the last 7 reps of the fist set down to a quarter. So 170 to 135. Math was a little off but close enough.

Manage this in 23:17

Round 1
The first Row felt decent 350 in I could feel the gas starting to drop off. I honestly forget my time on this one.

170 felt heavy and an old shoulder injury that I worry about made me drop the weight after the 23 rep. I managed 12 reps then was cycling in 3's and it just didn't feel intense enough. Finished the last 7 reps at 135.

Round 2
1000m I paced this out a little more and did it in 3:44. Added a little more resistance to the fan this time think it helped.
Managed to chain all 20 reps at 135. Had some minor pauses but didn't re-rack the bar.

Round 3
2000m If I recall managed this in 7:33. I could be off on this one. Felt OK, pushed it hard the last 500m. Banged out the last 10 fast.

This wasn't an easy one. I did this in a commercial gym and the bench was on the 2nd floor. So I prob lost about 20 to 25 sec just getting to the bench each time. Tough to pull this one off if you don't have the equipment.

Overall, very different. Bench isn't my fav of all exercises. Old shoulder injury makes me worry with it. Rather see a sub in for push-up next time. I am sure coach came up with this one for a reason. First time I have ever seen bench in a WOD.

Good work everyone. Have a happy May long weekend.

BP feel super weak today. Failed bench press x4 the first round which take longer to recover to do another one. The first round take up most of the time in the wod.

Rowing was not as bad as i imagined in my head. Before the wod I was planning to keep a 2:30 pace but ended up keeping it under 2:20 pace.

Warm-up: jump rope 100 single-unders + 50 double-unders; 17 ROM exercises.

As Rx: 27:03.

Cool-down: PNF of hamstrings & shldrs; static stretch - side & ctr splits.

Bar to chest on each BP rep.

Day 6 of my two "taking it easy" cycles. For the first time since starting CF, my body is telling me I need a bit of a break. So I decided to take it easy on the last cycle and again on this one.

Most of the "taking it easy" part came during the bench presses. I started to take it easy on the rows, but I honestly don't think there was much that was easy about them. If I pushed everything as fast as I could, I prob would have only shaved a couple min off my time. Tough one!

I lowered the weight down to 165# for bench. Bench is one of my weaknesses, so glad to see it pop up.

Thank you so much to CF San Diego and all of the Level I Cert staff for an "educational and inspiring" weekend. Your time and energy are appreciated.

Highlights for me were Andy's shout out to the women of his gym ("no you make ME dinner"), Josh's artwork (kangaroos do Crossfit too) and Greg saying 3 or 4 words (something about the eyes) and 10 people getting their first muscle up. I won't say anything about the cold brew on Sat afternoon - ssshhhhh

CrossFit Milwaukee Level I Cert:
A sincere thanks to our great instructors: Drew Thompson, Chuck Carswell, Adrian Bozman, Jolie Gentry, Joe Degain and Rudy Tapalla.
My experience further reinforced my belief that the CrossFit community is unique and special. From the teamwork displayed during the group workout to the group cheers when several people achieved their first muscle up. CrossFit people are good ....
I woke up today feeling a little sore, could have had something to do with Chuck's counting (he has been hit in the head a lot), or it could have been that we were truly exposed to the magic in the movements and the power that CrossFit holds.
I can't say enough about how much CrossFit means to me. Thanks to this cert I am better prepared to share my feelings and this great program with others.

Today's wod: used 100# for bench. The 2000m row nearly killed me. That's the longest I've ever rowed- sad, I know! Hubby accidentally stopped, cleared and restarted my watch during the first round- Total wod time somewhere around 28mins.

1000m in 3:53

Total time was 40:04 which means the benches took almost 27 minutes! Wow. Super slow.

Started with a triple. Mostly doubles and ended with singles on the bench.

Used 185 (That's like %1.4 over bodyweight so I scaled up! O.K, not really.)

Comment #383 - Posted by: Jeff Pelton at May 18, 2009 8:15 PM

I attended the Milwaukee certification this weekend. I have nothing but praise for the

trainers, and the organization of the event. It was quality throughout.

I find myself looking at the certification class pictures whenever they are posted, looking for

the older athletes like myself. I was glad there was a significant representation of athletes

in their 40s, and 50s at the cert.

It occurs to me, that the one thing none of our trainers, neither novice or accomplished, have

experienced is being older than their current age. When training athletes older than oneself,

there must always be some element of conjecture on what their capabilities might be.

Of course there is always a large variation in capabilities at any age group. That variation

likely increases with age as a result of the cumulation of life choices. The common stereotype

of the older athlete as decrepit, limited, and on the verge of losing their independence is too

easy to default to.

What are the capabilities of crossfitters in their 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s? Can these be

quantified and described? It would be interesting to have a more nuanced and documented

description of the range of their capabilities. That could be useful information for our new

trainers, because it's likely they are going to encounter and train increasing numbers of

athletes in these age brackets.

Oxygen rich blood on the legs suddenly need to rush back to the shoulders, chest and tri's to push up bodyweight??? Nice indeed. Good workout Coach. Did this one at 175lbs as RXd. 26:25

Comment #412 - Posted by: dandny at May 18, 2009 11:00 PM

Substituted the rows for SDHP 45# bar 50, 100, 200 reps.

These are a lot harder for me then the rowing machine so I had to take breaks in between (I miss the rowing machine!)

I haven't done bench press in a long time. Back when I first started working out, I would get hurt in my right arm every time when I would do bench press and the pain would last for a couple of weeks to a month. After that happening frequently, I ditched them all together because I didn't want to get hurt again. When this WOD came up, I decided that I had to conquer this fear so I went online and read on the right way how to do a bench press and now I can lift more and not get hurt in my arm! Yay!

1st round I did the BW bench press: 175 (My BW is always between 175-180). I made it through the 1st round doing just 2 reps at a time.

the 2nd round, I wasn't able to hold it anymore because of the blood in my arms so 10 reps I took it down to 155, then the last 10 reps I took it back down to 135

3rd round I knocked out 5 135s and felt it was too easy so the last 5 (I made it 6), I brought it back up to 155, doing about 3-4 reps each time.

My time: 45:06.23

I'm starting to like Bench Press again... :)

M/33/80kg
Made the mistake of trying this in the early evening at a commercial gym. The bench was being heavily used and, as usual, I had no spotter. 80kg feels really heavy to me and in particular I didn't feel safe without a spotter towards the end of the first round, so I scaled to 25 reps, 15 reps and 5 reps for the BP.
Even then, the time was about 38 minutes. Horrible workout.

Just returned from the Milwaukee level 1 cert and just wanted to send a quick thank you to all the trainers and the folks at Milwaukee Crossfit. Andrew, Chuck, Boz, Jolie, Joe and Rudy were all great. I can't imagine a better person to demonstrate great technique than Jolie! Just a great team of coaches.

I'm one of those "older" guys that Eric spoke of in #351. His point is a good one - maybe a cert focused on training the older athlete and all the considerations that go with that?

Thanks for keeping us all on track Andrew. You did a fantastic job and kept it informative and fun. The 3-D Fitness/Health Model and your emphasis on "age" in the "Work capacity across broad time and age domains" discussion was quite good. Most of us are never going to be fit enough to compete in the Crossfit Games - we are doing this to improve our health and quality of life.

The only thing I'd change about the weekend is I wish Joe would have gotten a Haircut! My quads are fried and us old guys take a bit longer to recover, but I feel well prepared to improve my own training and encourage my friends and family in their quest for better health and fitness.

Comment #431 - Posted by: Lee W at May 19, 2009 5:05 AM

Thanks Andrew, Jolie, Rudy, Joe, Boz, and Chuck for an awesome level 1 Cert at Crossfit Milwaukee! Was very impressed at how well structured the classes where along with your professionalism in teaching and answering questions. I was amazed at how you could teach technique for some fairly complex moves in such a short amount of time and have the whole class doing it correctly! Thanks again Chuck the helping me get my first muscle up. What a great way to finish an awesome weekend!

Rower and bench are in two different rooms, so I know I wasted lots of time sauntering between stations. Also, I saved too much in the 1K and 2K row and coulda gone harder. Right shoulder impingement is still kicking my rear, but the daily ice and theraband stuff is doing wonders.

This was my 2nd day of Crossfit, I'm having fun! I didn't have a row machine at home so I hooked a jumprope around the bottom of my kitchen table (it has a center pedestal base), and sat on my son's skateboard and rowed. Didn't see the sdhp's substitution til after I had that done. I'll know next time - although I think my way was more fun LOL. For bp - no bench so did 'em on the floor.

Mod BP. This workout was tough. Rxers... congrats!
1:57= 500 Row
4:15= 165# BP (too heavy... dropped to 145#)
4:14= 1000 Row (trying to hold 2 min!)
4:35= 145# BP (5/3s/2s)
8:46= 2000 Row (hoping for sub 8:30 then shifted to sub 9.)
1:20= 145# BP (So happy to be off the rower blasted these out... got 9 in a row... 10th was too much!)
Total= 25:04 (156/172)
Next time keep trying to hold 2 min on row and 155# BP.

Frustrating workout, straps for the C2 kept breaking every 200m. Time to learn how to row without straps.

Bench Press scaled down to 185, C2 two floors up so transit time included. Definitely still a solid workout.

I was a little nervous going into the level 1 cert at CFSD (even though it's my home box) because I was going to have to battle Fran again. But when I walked in, I was greeted by my two mentors- Rachel & Trish. That eased the nerves!
I had a blast learning the mechanics & really understanding what Crossfit is about. I can't wait to really put them to use!
I was shocked by the group of trainers we had, I think we got spoiled! :) Rach, Jimi, Greg, Stephan, Andy, & Josh- what a great group, thank you so much for teaching us! Jimi, Trish, & Rach- thanks for the push during Fran. I destroyed my time of 6:55 which was done 2 weeks ago, to 5:33 at the cert. I was happy to teach one of our members how to kip last night, from the cues Jimi taught us on Sunday.
Again, thank you trainers for a wonderful weekend & I'll see you guys again at the Games!

The Level I Cert in Milwaukee was excellent. I would recommend to anyone considering going to a cert that you do it, even if only for your own training. I was extremely nervous about going, having just had a baby and being very out of shape, but I was able to learn so much and participate in all the workouts at my current level. I guess that's one of the best things about CrossFit and I was glad to learn more about scaling and programming. The professionalism in the coaches was top notch. This was one of the most well-presented and well-run trainings I have ever been to.

great workout. Subbed 135 for BW of 196. Probably should have gone higher in retrospect.

First set was 20 then 5. rerack and then the last 5.
2nd - 14, rerack then 6.
3rd was 10

Rowing was 1:40, 3:50, 7:50.

Comment #504 - Posted by: mr blue at May 19, 2009 3:19 PM

Time: 31:30

Tough workout. The rowing went pretty well, I was able to keep 2:00 pace per 500m. Although I was a lot more tired in the 2000m, my form was getting better, so I figure I was rowing more efficiently.

Bench was tough, but not impossible. Rounds went: 12-6-4-2-2-2-2; 8-3-3-2-2-2; and 6-2-2. Bench basically took me a minute per mini-set, so 7, 6, and 3 minutes respectively. I had a few times where I kept trying to get that 3rd rep, but just couldn't quite get it up. Ultimately, that probably burned me out big time - much room for improvement.

Used 175 on bench. Body weight today 173.6. Left shoulder has been giving me problems last couple days - no impact on workout, but keep an eye on it, may need to rest it.

Tried the Rx for the first round (@215lbs) - took 47 minutes. Five reps into the second round I scaled down to lean body mass weight of 185lbs.

Also subbed SDHP due to lack of rowing machine.(50,100,200)

Benching my bodyweight is easy for me since my 1 rep max is approx. 255 (165 is 65% of my 1rm). I was able to push out 23 on the first set unbroken. Almost all 20 on the second set (16 I think) and all 10 no problem on the last set.

Overall a great WOD for me. Played into my strengths for once :-)

M/ 35/ 130 lbs/ 5'-6"
As Required: 26:30 - not so great time.
Used 135 lbs for bench - great workout. I think I've mentioned this before, but I feel that I need to say that whenever I do a rowing workout for more than 500 m. at a clip, my but/ glutes & hams get all cramped up and really sore. That's the pain that bothers me more than the cardio or muscle fatigue. I had to actually stop 2 times in the 2K row for a few seconds to let the cramps out. I've never done 2K row before and it was a good mental fight, but my cardio was more than there and my muscles were o.k... but my ass was killing me. I think it's because of the much more narrow stance in the row than anything else that I do.. not sure if I'm going to far forward or if that would cause that. In short 500 m. bursts you just bank it out and go to the next thing, but in 1K & 2K the glutes were firing up pretty nice. I know I could really reduce that time by a ton if my but wasn't so sore/ cramped.

Comment #560 - Posted by: Apolloswabbie 074 210 45 yoa at May 20, 2009 8:22 AM

Had to sub body weight Bench Press as unable to bench my own weight, (don't even think the blokes in the gym could bench my weight)

Bench @ 30kg (should have done it at 35kg)

Time 27min 15sec (happy dance got a quicker time than Pedro, ok he did manage all BP at near enough body weight but he is usually about half my time for most wod, so just a small happy dance to celebrate as this does not happen very often.)

Was resting after finishing WOD, and was oblivious tae the eejit on the bench needig a spot when a bloke from the gym said. "You now you looked a lot fitter before you started Crossfit". I was at a loss for words. I think his tight short was affecting the oxygen
to his brain.

Comment #564 - Posted by: dsm19 at May 20, 2009 8:56 AM

27 minutes.

First round of BP was 185 (slightly above bodyweight) Broken as follows 8-6-6-4-3-2-1. Second round did 4 reps with 185 then dropped down to 135 because I was needing too much time to recover between broken reps. Thought it would be better to move quickly and get the full effect of the fast bench/row. Probably would have been best at 155 as 135 seemed a bit light. Next time . . .

Started at 197LB bench and changed to 187 after 20 reps in first set as I could only muster 1 rep if I was lucky and time was of the essence. Great WOD- more bench press involvement on WOD's would be nice.

This Wod was ultimately frusterating. I knew the body weight bench press was going to eat up a lot of time, but this was retarded.

I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet and lose some weight. This Wod would have been much more do-able at 185lbs.
