Wow, this looks horrible! Goodbye arms...it's been a good journey, but I guess it had to come to an end sooner or later!

Oh well... 3, 2, 1 go!

Don't usually post before I do the wod, but let me be the first to say: this one deserves to be named and become one of the Girls.

What do you sub the L pull ups with if you can not do an L pull up?

Comment #10 - Posted by: Sarah at September 18, 2009 5:58 PM

Sarah, the first sub down is to do "Z" pullups: knees up, feet down.

You can also come up with some combination of pullups and Toes-to-bars, kipping pullups and L-sits, jumping pullups and situps... Whatever it takes to work the 2 large muscle recruitment groups in quick succession, if simultanaeity is not possible.
Personally, I'll be doing kipping pullups, then knees-to-elbows, then HSPU (toes over a bar at my height) for each round tomorrow.

Little advice,

Did heavy DL's for reps yesterday, today out of nowhere, dull pulsating pain radiating from the neck down deep through the shoulder and tricep. Pain became worse when inhaling. No pain from shoulder movement. Anyone? Thanks.

what is the burpee mile to be exact? anyone?

Comment #21 - Posted by: D-wreck at September 18, 2009 8:15 PM

Sarah, might consider either one-legged "Ls," alternating legs or using momentum to pull up at the same time you come to an "L." This is subject to others who know better...

Comment #22 - Posted by: Tom in OKC at September 18, 2009 8:21 PM

Normaly I would never do this but today marks 1 year with Crossfit. For those of you just starting let me give you some stats. I don't have a big ego but this for me has been a truely amazing journey of not only fitness but self discovery.
Starting Weight 200lbs, age 36, Male
Current weight 175lbs still a Male but am 37
At the Start Now
Deadlift 245 375
Bench 190 295
Pullups 2 22
1 Mile Run 9:30 7:02
Clean and Jerk 125 175
FRAN 20:09 98:40
Grace 14:45 6:34
Three Bars
of Death 45:12 18:36

I put this up there to show the new people here that Crossfit has changed my life and it can change your's also. I have more energy then I ever have had in my life and being stuck in Iraq is not that bad when you have a community like these guys behind you. With that said can't weight to destroy my arms, have not done this one before so it should be interesting. Love you guys 3-2-1 Go.

Comment #23 - Posted by: Swany at September 18, 2009 8:28 PM

Thank you very much

Comment #29 - Posted by: puh at September 18, 2009 9:15 PM

PUh -

Bodyweight rows, pullups on a bar just 4' off the ground (heels touching), bench pulls, jumping pullups, assisted pullups with the Gravitron machine or big rubber bands... I'm not making this up. My wife started Crossfitting this summer (she's a teacher) and went from knee pushups and pullups on a bar set to where she could reach it sitting - to sets of 15 pushups on her toes and is THAT close to a pullup. She's 41... set the bar (literally) high and when the goal is reached, the physical/mental/emotional reward will be so sweet.

As for you - look on the left side menu and read the FAQ's. ;)

Comment #36 - Posted by: Brian R - 28 / Male / 5'9" at September 19, 2009 12:25 AM

#15 John-In-Jersey - might be contracture of the scalene muscles on the side of your neck which may or may not be associated with some nerve entrapment (Radial Nerve - C5,C6'ish level, maybe C4 too), and facet joint involvement...Scalenes attach to your 1st and 2nd rib, so they will be affected with deep inhalation. Dfeinately get it checked out cos' these types of injuries tend not to heal too well without some intervention.

Try some self massage on the affected side by dragging your knuckles down from behind your ear, down to the hollow behind your clavicle (collar bone). As you do this, tilt your head away from the injured side (ie as you drag you knuckles down, lean your head further and further over). Use some olive oil if the friction is too much, but some friction is good. Lost of stretching is also recommended!

Good luck!

Swany,

Amazing stats! Congrats on your first year of CF. What's really amazing is that most people who apply themselves and make the commitment get the same results! Keep up the good work, be safe, and come home to join us stateside for more Crossfit.

Comment #49 - Posted by: bingo at September 19, 2009 6:06 AM

Well, my back is still a bit AFU from my visit to Louisville, so I'll participate today with a little educational offering.

When you first read a WOD that is new to you there are three things I believe you should ask yourself.

1) Can I do the movements requested? If not, what are the substitutions suggested? Look in the FAQ's on the left side of the page.
2) What is Coach looking for today? For example, not only are we training PU today (and rather strict, non-kipping PU at that), but we are also after a core workout. So, if you can't do the requested movement you should attempt to reproduce the requested goal in your sub. Today that would be some sort of PU or assisted PU followed by some sort of core exercise to approximate the "L" of the L-PU. Perhaps L-sits or L-holds?
3) What is YOUR goal for the WOD? This applies more to weighted WOD's like 'Fran' or 'Diane'. Do you want a rip-roaring, high-intensity met-con a la Jeff Martin's entreaties a few days ago? Or do you want a muscle/strength-endurance effect? Choose your weight accordingly.

CF, when done from the Main Page of .com, asks us for some self-sufficiency, and requires in many ways a GREATER level of understanding of Crossfit than going to an Affiliate IMO. It's all here, but you gotta work for it, a little 'brain work' prior to your fitness work as it were.

Wish I was 'in the gym' with you all today. See you tomorrow, if only for "Musings..."

L-sit pullups, all Rx'd reps with palms away grip and chin well over bar. Found I could straighten my elbows at the hang if I pushed away from the bar rather than trying to hang straight down (my lack of shoulder and low back flexibility will not allow me to hang straight down). Looks odd and felt strange, but no shoulder or back pain. Was able to do the "push away" pullups for the first two rounds, but the unusual motion fatigued my upper back too much to continue doing them that way. Remainder were done with elbows as straight as possible.

Opted for full ROM HSPUs with hands on 12" stools and head touching ground instead of the quarter ROM HSPUs. Followed a 7-6-5-4-3-2-1 rep scheme.

Comment #92 - Posted by: Panger at September 19, 2009 10:25 AM

Sorry in advance if this isn't the appropriate venue for such a post...

Crossfit newbie here. Never done L-pullups and am unable to do handstand pushups (though I've been working on wall handstands) To be honest, I' m feeling pretty thrashed right now (posterior chain, lats and arms particularly). "Daniel" killed me. I am taking grad school entrance exam next Saturday, and will only be working out very lightly from Thursday through Saturday. I'll be taking enough time off later this week as it is, so I don't want to take today off.

Can some one recommend me an alternative workout to try today.

I was thinking of maybe doing some stregnth work today (maybe do some heavy bench presses or squats at 70% of my max). Or maybe spending some time on the stairclimber. Another option is I could work on my snatches at a light weight, work on my long distance running (so far I'm a pretty inept runner), or work on my double unders. Any suggestions for a alternate WOD would be appreciated.

Comment #93 - Posted by: Daniel NYC at September 19, 2009 10:47 AM

I'd post my time but it would be worthless with the amount of cheating I did. At least I'm spent. 2 weeks into Crossfit...hopefully in a few months I can do this one.

Comment #96 - Posted by: WR at September 19, 2009 11:02 AM

Did all the pullups as normal pullups (not kipping, not L-pull-up). Handstand pushups as follows:
1) 15 HSPU then assisted (legs on box)
2) 10 HSPU then assisted
3) 8 HSPU then assisted
4) 12
5) 9

First CF workout ever...I have been staring at the WOD for awhile, reading journals, getting my diet in order. Finally took the plunge...

M/26/186

40:20 kipping PU and not full ROM on HSPU but sore as hell!

Regular deadhang pullups for 31 reps and then did the rest of the pullups with the thin blue band. Made L shape with both legs out while using the band.

HSPU to 2 mats stacked on the floor and all the way back up each rep.

Comment #99 - Posted by: jill 31/122/5'4 at September 19, 2009 11:11 AM

28:29 HSPU's 2.7 inches less than full ROM

Comment #100 - Posted by: Hari at September 19, 2009 11:18 AM

First time ever I smoked the HSPU. Obliterated them, full rom down to abmat.

My L-pullups were another story. Mostly groups of threes, then twos, then singles for the latter rounds.

HSPU
L Pull-ups

1 hour

The HSPU were all the way to the floor and shoulder width hand placement. These slowed me down tremendously. I decided to ditch the regular time pressure and work on the strength needed to complete this WOD. In the end I could not do more HSPU.

Had to pull the knees in on the pull ups - haven't mastered the L pull up yet. Went as low as I could on the hspu - not sure on my time but it was somewhere around 16 and 1/2 minutes. Hit the wrong button on my timer - reset is not the same thing as stop. grr. Anywho, it was a great workout - happy to say the pull up bar is working well in the basement. Just can't get a huge kip or my head will be hitting the top of the rafters. And I have to be very careful not to k.o. myself - but it sure beats nothing!
Have a great weekend all!

I went into the workout today not knowing if I was going to finish – I had never done more than 64 HSPUs in a workout before, and they are one of my biggest weaknesses. I had no one going against me; I only had myself as a gauge, so it became a head game. HSPUs felt better than usual, but I still paced. About halfway through the workout I realized I was going to be able to finish, and began stringing together 6 Lpulls at a time, 5 HSPUs at a time. Afterwards, I scolded myself for not pushing that intensity the entire time, but I do realize I learned not to be scared off by the numbers anymore. I will not let my head get in the way next time.

Looked at this and said "yeah right". Got discouraged.
My coach broke it down into bite sized chunks for me:
21 HSPU to books (used 6")
3 tuck pullups, 9 kips, 9 hanging leg raises
18 hspus
2 tuck pullups, 8 kipping, 8 hanging leg raises
15 hspus
3 tuck pullups, 6 kipping, 6 hanging leg raises.
And on.....down the line.
Switched to 4" worth of books for the HSPUs at the round of 6.

Could do around 5 L sits in a row then had to change to tuck then to kipping then to jump

HSPU's scaled by piking with feet on bench...nailed these so need to find the next progression to full HSPU

Time = 12.40

Good work out, great upper body pump.

Comment #217 - Posted by: phil g atlanta, ga at September 20, 2009 10:52 AM

Tried Handstand Push-ups at the house here....LOL...Not very good, but did a few with my feet held up (rather than against the wall).

Did the L-Pull-ups throughout the day just about every time I walked under my doorway pull-up bar.

Was not ready to do either one of these as a WOD yet.

I did run 2 5k's back to back in the morning, though. I took a 5 minute break between the 5k's. Had a 21 second variance between the runs.

Had a hard time with the handstand pushups. This was the first time I attempted them unassisted. ALL were broken and on most of the sets, I had to complete the round with assistance. Much room for improvement here.

But I took like 5 min. rest and then went back and did the 18-12-6. It took me a good 20 mins. Did HSPU with feet up on the squat bar as it lay in the rack. I think the pullups were more like tuck pullups too. These excercizes are very very tough. Takes a lot of raw power, which I hope to gain as I move through these workouts. Lovin it though.

Scaled to pack (cut off first round of 21), still a lot of HSPUs for me. Felt good during this, but wasn't sure I could get thru it until the round of 9.

First 12 HSPUs in a row (PR!)...then many, many broken sets. Still need to work on form on L-pullups. Did better this time keeping legs parallel (still not perfect L throughout), but need better ROM coming down on the pull-up.

full HSPU for the first dozen or so, then I worked back to putting my toes on a plyo box. L-pullups also worked their way back to regular pullups after about the first dozen. Still need to work on these movements. I lack strength in this area. Good WOD.

HSPU's self-assisted and all rds. (surprisingly) unbroken. But, L-pulls were horrible. Started w/ 5, then a couple 4's, then 3's, 2's and singles. Even though I had a bad callus and elbow tendinitis in my right arm, these always eat up my time.

At first I was trying to not get too tired out with the HSPUs, but actually I found the L pull-ups were harder to get that last one towards the end... I was really trying to not use my arms and more my back to pull up... I only felt my stomach big time towards the end... first time with this WOD... good workout... I look forward to trying this one again sometime.

29:45 as required.

Had nothing left for the HSPU's for rounds of 6 and 3 reps. L pullups were really good. I did actually pull off about 5 HSPU's balancing off the wall. I am impressed if I do say so myself.

By the way, I have never had a WOD to combine something relatively easy for me (L pullups) with something I find so damn hard (HSPU). That creative torture is why I love Crossfit.

First round of hand stands were nearly vertical with feet resting on wall. Too hard and too much blood in my head, so all the rest were with my feet on a table, L shape like.

I couldn't keep a strict L shape for the pull ups. My knees were held at waist height, but my feet droops at about a -45 degree angle.

Form I think is suspect on L sits? Don't completely lock out my elbows at bottom(ie deadhang with L sit kept), but they are close to locked out. So not sure if these times count? Not many L sit pullups demos I can find on CF page.

HSPU's had someone catch my legs. I think I need to do them against a wall??
