Rest in Peace brother
American by Birth, Lightfighter by Choice
What If I have rings but can't do a muscle up? Should I perform 21 pullups followed with 7 ring dips?
Rest In Peace Sir. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
I think HQ is trying to break my chest. Might have to go with bar muscle-ups on this one.
RIP. Thank you for serving.
RIP Tyler, tomorrows WOD is for you.
I can't think of a better way to celebrate the life of a hero, and honor his sacrifice. I was going to take tomorrow off until now. This one is for you Tyler! Let's all be in prayer for his family and friens.
it sucks to see more and more hero workouts, but i will be pushing hard for you tyler. RIP
Thinking of you brother. God bless you.
In honor of a fallen brother. I'll do this workout with all I have. Rest in peace.
Day is done, gone the sun,
From the hills, from the lake,
From the skies.
All is well, safely rest,
God is nigh.
Go to sleep, peaceful sleep,
May the soldier or sailor,
On the land or the deep,
Safe in sleep.
Love, good night, Must thou go,
When the day, And the night
Need thee so?
All is well. Speedeth all
To their rest.
Fades the light; And afar
Goeth day, And the stars
Fare thee well; Day has gone,
Night is on.
Thanks and praise, For our days,
'Neath the sun, Neath the stars,
'Neath the sky,
As we go, This we know,
God is nigh.
Rest in peace, Tyler. Thank you for protecting our country. My prayers go out to your family.
Thank you for your sacrifice, Tyler.
RIP - Thank you for giving your life so others may keep theirs. You exemplify the men and women who give without being asked.
RIP Lt. Tomorrow is for you and your sacrifice.
Can't do this wod because of work but I would like to truly thank you Tyler for you service to my country. Without people like you who knows where I would be. Thank you and rest in peace man.
Hate to see new hero workouts.
I thank you Tyler from the bottom of my heart, rest in peace.
well this is for you my fellow brother n arms....the pain will only be skin deep...lets SUBRAT it UP!!!!!!
Rest in Peace Tyler Parten, my prayers go out for you and your family.
Rest in peace, and God bless.
It is always a sad shock when a new hero WOD pops up. Sir, rest easy now, and thank you. To my fellow brothers in arms, and CFers...lets honor this fine Lt by destroying our bodies tomorrow. S/F
RIP Tyler will go damn hard tomorrow with this one
Cannot wait to do this workout
Great cycle!!! RIP TYLER!!!
I'll say the Mourners Kaddish for Tyler tonight. Rest in Peace Tyler, your sacrifice won't be forgotten.
first WOD since i can do muscle-ups lets see what will happen
My prayers go out to your family, Tyler. Thank you for your service, and God Bless you and all the other soldiers in harms way. You are all heroes!
Rest in peace Tyler. Prayers go to your family and friends. Will do this WOD soon in your honor.
RIP Tyler. We've run in the same circles. Tomorrow is my first formal on-ramp after two years of individual crossfitting. I'll be thinking of you.
Thank you for your service.
Getting after this one hard tomorrow
Your sacrifice will never be forgotten. Tomorrow, we honor you the best way we know how...
Thank you for your service and sacrifice. A good reminder that America is still at war even though much of the country seems oblivious to this fact.
We owe these brave men and women all of our support, respect and the honor of calling them "HERO" instead of some over paid sportsman or entertainer.
May God bless Tyler's family and loved ones with peace and comfort.
Rest in peace Tyler. It broke my heart to see tomorrow's WOD.
Try jumping muscle ups
#26 Tim - Thanks for the heads up! My box is my garage and I am slowly upgrading my gear as finances allow. Sounds like the Rogue bar may get moved up on the priority list.
Five rounds for time of:
95 pound Sumo-deadlift high-pull, 21 reps
33:12, muscleups were slow as always.
Gods speed Tyler.
Rest In Peace Sir. Raise your glass and sing the praise of a fallen soul. See you all on the floor tomorrow
RIP brother. You are not forgotten. Your efforts are not in vain. God speed to all our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines. You are all in ours prayers.......Thank you!
Tyler, you're officially a Crossfit Hero...though you've been a hero for years in so many ways. We'll never forget your sacrifice, Brother. Rest now, as we continue to work in your honor.
Tyler my heart sank when I heard about this. Even though we only spent a short time together, I feel truly grateful for having known you. You were there when my family was going through our darkest moment. Andy was lucky to have known you as a classmate and friend. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with your family. Rest in peace brother, you've done well.
As day slips blissfully into the night,
Another soldier waged the good fight.
A husband or father, a brother or son,
We are eternally grateful for what you have done.
Stand down now soldier, your duty is o'er,
And rest in God's arms, forever more.
Tyler's sacrifice sure puts things back in perspective. I may not do the WOD tomorrow, but I will spend time with my 17 year old son.
hey I have a question, my wrists still haven't healed from the 30 muscle ups we did a while ago, is this fairly normal? I've only been doing the WODs for about three months so I haven't had a lot of experience with muscle ups but they aren't overly hard, it's just that they tear up my wrists so bad to where I feel they aren't worth doing. how hard is it to do them with no false grip?
R.I.P., brother in arms, warrior, fellow Arkansan.
High speed, Tyler.
Tim #26, we've heard you all week about your barbell. It sucks, and I'm sorry. But today would have been a good time to give everyone a break from the SHOUTING and have some respect for the WOD.
Blood and Steel Trooper you wore your spurs with honor. Sleep well brother.
I knew Tyler from school. What a great soldier and a great leader. Always Remember Never Surrender... Ducks live forever.
R.I.P. brother in arms. It was an honor serving with you. This one's for you!
See you at fiddlers green. RIP.. Scouts Out
...Not another one.
Lt, Rest easy knowing that we have the 'Watch'...
... Our prayers are with you & yours. Gods speed!
This has to be one of my new favorites. Can't wait to try it out.
Godspeed, brother. Thank you for your sacrifice. Peace to your family.
If you need to sub the Muscle Up's, the substitution is the following, from the FAQ section on this site:
"Most common substitution is 3 pullups +3 dips, or 4 pullups +4 dips."
So the wod would look like this,
Five Rounds for time:
4 Pullups 4 Dips
21 95lb Sumo Dead Lift High Pulls (SDHP)
If you cant do 95lb SDHP or dont have proper form scale the weight accordingly so you dont hurt yourself.
Tyler - Thank you for your service and your sacrifice for your fellow countrymen. Your efforts and ultimate sacrifice are greatly appreciated. Our condolences to the Parten family. Godspeed and God Bless, Tyler.
Honor and Respect. Will be knocking this one out so hard I crush myself.
A real American Hero!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
End of watch, RIP 1LT Parten!
Always hard to see a new Hero. God bless Tyler, his family and brothers in arms. Thank you all for you sacrifice, you will be in my prayers tonight.
that sub is "PER" muscle up. so essentially the WOD with that sub would be this
28 pullups, 28 dips, 21 95lb SDHPs
well, that is my understanding of it. because 4 pull ups + 4 dips is not equivalent to 7 muscle ups. good luck!
Rest in peace Tyler
PROPS TO THE FRAT
RIP- Thanks to those in the armed forces from the bottom of my heart.
Woe! Postumus, Postumus
The Years are flying from you
Virtue and devotion shall not delay this wrinkled age
For unconquered are the hands of death
You may try, my friend, to sacrifice hecatombs
To soothe the tearless death:
Pluto, he who ensnares even
Ample Tityus and Geryon
But there are gloomy waters which all must travel
All those who have tasted the riches of the earth
Whether they ruled as arrogant kings
Or were humble workers of the land
Vainly we flee the blood of war
And the storms of the Adriatic
Vainly we flee the dreaded autumn
And the south wind which chills the soul
You will brave the thick stagnant waters of the Cocytus
Where ill-famed Danaus, accursed Aeolus'
Son ancient Sisyphus
Are condemned to endless toil
Your land, your wife, your home
You will leave
Bring only the loathed cypress
No other tree shall follow their master
And he shall squander what you treasured
Your heir, being a worthier soul
Bursting the locks to spill the Caecuban wines
To dye your marble floors
Rip, Tyler. From one Cavalryman to another:
Halfway down the trail to Hell,
In a shady meadow green
Are the Souls of all dead troopers camped,
Near a good old-time canteen.
And this eternal resting place
Is known as Fiddlers' Green.
Marching past, straight through to Hell
The Infantry are seen.
Accompanied by the Engineers,
Artillery and Marines,
For none but the shades of Cavalrymen
Dismount at Fiddlers' Green.
Though some go curving down the trail
To seek a warmer scene.
No trooper ever gets to Hell
Ere he's emptied his canteen.
And so rides back to drink again
With friends at Fiddlers' Green.
And so when man and horse go down
Beneath a saber keen,
Or in a roaring charge of fierce melee
You stop a bullet clean,
And the hostiles come to get your scalp,
Just empty your canteen,
And put your pistol to your head
And go to Fiddlers' Green.
If you ain't Cav, you ain't.....
No rings at my JSS, so had to do pull-ups/dips. I think that helped my speed, I can probably kip pull-ups faster than I could do a muscle up. SDHP killed me though.
God Bless, LT Parten. I was in Konar with 3-71 CAV in 2006-07 when we established COPs Keating (Kamdesh) and Kamu. We lost too many great Americans then and since. His sacrifice will not go in vain!
My small suffering tomorrow is offered up in your name.
I never met Tyler, but we probably worked out at the same gyms at Fort Carson. I'll be thinking about you, man.
My gym does not have rings, how many pull ups and dips should i do to replicate the muscle ups?
Fairly new to this so unsure
Tyler was a freshman in my company at school when I was a senior. Always a great kid and full of energy. I don't think I'll be able to knock this one out anytime soon due to some operational stuff, but it'll be waiting for me when I get back.
tyler was a good guy and I will never forget him, i was surprised when i logged onto the website this morning and saw him and this workout dedicated to him. im not sure who nominated him or why, but thank you.
#49 Michael C, you should thoroughly tape your wrists and hands to avoid a rip. Google "tape grip crossfit" or something like that and you can find instructions. Use 1" athletic tape from the drugstore.
For those who keep asking for the sub. This came from FAQ.
Pullups and dips. Some have suggested 1 min of both somewhat equates to one muscle-up. Most common substitution is 3 pullups +3 dips, or 4 pullups +4 dips.
thanks tyler. my future kids will live like all of us do now because of great men like u. RIP trooper
As silly as this sounds do you do full lenght pull ups or do you sacrifice true form in order to blast through the reps as quickly as possible?
Only started crossfit this week so just trying to find my feet!!
Hey Sir, you did your best....to your family he's a hero, doing what he did best, defending our country
Subbed 1 c2b pullup+1 ring dip per muscle-up due to lack of space.
Thank to whomever posted this workout!! Tyler was my classmate and an amazing guy! He deserves to be called a hero for so many reasons, I have begun working out 6 days a week hard and doing everything I can to get to Afghanistan to continue to help our brothers in arms and the innocent Afghan people that face the terror of the Taliban everyday...trying to continue to do the good that Tyler did! Thank you Tyler, I have prayed for your family everyday since that day, we know God is taking care of you now!
Jim Bon -
For the pullups - Do the Kipping Pullup, that will be the fastest way.
To the american crossfitters:
do you have plates with both pounds and kilos written on it? Or just pounds? And are they calibrated on the pounds? Or are they calibrated in kilos and converted to pounds?
And if your talking about a bar, your talking about 45lbs. The official olympic bars from the swedish company ELEIKO are callibrated on 20kg. Do you have other bars?
The most common weights in CF are:
Should I use resp. 61kg and 43kg. Or do you mean 60kg and 45? Or 40?
I'm sorry if i'm an antf*cker (as we say in dutch), but I think it's quite important to compare weights or times.
Thanks again for the advise. Looks like its going to be 1 hell of a session
God bless you and keep you Tyler, you and your household. Thank you for your sacrifice.
Bless you sir Rest in peace. Your sacrifices are appreciated.
Started muscle-ups from an L-sit position just above the ground, arms not quite fully extended, due to inadequate ceiling height in my apartment. Stepped off after each muscle-up, because I didn't want to hit my tailbone when lowering off to fast.
Good workout for a bad reason.
From your brothers in Fury 2-12, we are doing this for you. RIP LT, see you at the top of the hill.
Thank you Tyler and ALL of you men and women serving our country. You are appreciated more than you know.
Go with God & Thank you. Our prayers are with your loved ones.
subs: 3/1 pull-up,ring dip/muscle-up;65# for sdhp
sub 21 pullups/dips
This one is for you Tyler. My prayers are with your familiy and unit to keep them strong and safe. A true American hero who will never be forgotten by me or my friends.
My shoulders slumped as I found another Hero WOD on the main page. Rest in peace, brother.
"Should I use resp. 61kg and 43kg. Or do you mean 60kg and 45? Or 40?"
Comment #92 - Posted by: Vincentvanh at October 17, 2009 3:43 AM
I'm an American CrossFitter. I use 62.5kg for 135# and 43kg for 95# whenever these weights come up.
Hero workouts always have a different feel to them for me - M 33 187/200lbs 15.21mins as rx
15 pull ups
70# sumo high pull X 21
My thought are out to Tyler and his family. RIP.
New hero WODs get my muscles twitching ready for some work.
Heading off to my Level 1 Cert in Reno this morning. I doubt they will let us do this WOD. I will have to catch up with it next week.
Subbed 21 dips and 21 pull-ups for the 7 muscle-ups; otherwise, as rx'ed.
Very disappointed I did not get it under 30 minutes.
subbed pull-ups and dips x3.
Finished 1st set in 1:16, then muscle-up fatigue set in.
running the Bisbee1000 today...that is in 1034 stairs plus run :) here I go
Kicking myself for doing a Ryan-a hero wod with muscle ups yesterday. Owe it to my classmate to meet pukie when I do it on monday
Took me 5 min for the 1st round; muscle-up not great but got them. Then performed jumping MU for the rest; still very hard for me. RIP brother.
31m, 170, 65"
13:29 as rx'd
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
First round was unbroken. I then started doing 4+3 was the MU's. The SDHPs started sucking pretty bad. Got 11+5+5 on the second round and the next three rounds were done 7+4+4+3+3.
28 pull ups, 28 dips
1st set of SDHP's at 95#, rest of sets at 75#
You're a hero, Tyler.
24:55 subbed jumping mu's
Tyler was my classmate at WP. He was a great guy and a true soldier. RIP
#119 Chazz that is an amazing an oh so true quote. thanks for sharing.
I will give my best on this tomorrow. God's speed Tyler and my prayers are with your family and mates across the ocean.
Tyler, I thank you for my freedom. God rest your soul and bless your family.
Rest In Peace Brother. Thank you for serving our country and granting us the freedom to do the things we love. We are forever in debt to you.

Tyler, my former drinking buddy and fellow Deb-Baller. We did some good rocking out together back in the day. I'm glad we got you on here, you deserve it! RIP brother, we all miss you down here.
RIP Tyler, thanks for serving. I didn't know you, but you died on my birthday and I'm same age as you. I can't help but feel connected somehow. Thank you for serving our country and protecting our freedoms. No resting on this WOD. All out in your honor.
Felt amazing to actually get that many MU after not getting them the past few 30MU days.
My prayers go out to Tyler's family. His service is greatly appreciated.

When the taliban and other terrorists smolder forgotten in the trash can of History-joining the Nazis and Stalinists as an embarrassing footnote in Humanity's archives, their victims and those who rose up to defend us against them will be our beacon--a very sad beacon, indeed--to remind us all to be ever vigilant. Thank you, all military, especially those abroad. You are doing God's work out there. You nor your families left behind will ever be forgotten.
God Bless Lt. Tyler and his family. You are in my every thought and prayer.
subbed pullups and dips
Good pace until last round with 2 failed MU attempts
Always sad when there's a new 'hero' workout. Prayers for the family, and thanks for the comrades.

Only got through 3 rounds before re-opening a cut on my palm (not from CF). Decided to call it quits when I couldn't get it to stop bleeding. I'm sure no one would have appreciated me bleeding all over the equipment.
3 rounds in 12:02
Subbed muscle ups for 21 pullups & 7 ring dips:
subbed bar muscle ups for ring muscle ups

JOE #139...That first sentence is just a classic. Thanks.
Keep doin' work up there son.
Can someone tell me what the functional benefit of the sumo deadlift high pull is? I really hate this work out and cant really think of what is so great about it that they have us do it all the time.
"Tyler" as rx'd 15:15
RIP Tyler, your efforts are never forgotten! ...25:44 rx'd... Muscle up blisters suck!
as rx'd 29:41, done after yesterdays wod had 2 make it up
A shout out for Tyler and all those warriors who have fought in the Konar River Valley - arguably some of the toughest terrain and conditions our Army has fought in since its inception in 1775.
35:47, with 3:1 pull-ups and dips, 65# sdhp.
21:22, did 95# power cleans instead of sdhp. Rest as RX'ed.

RIP Tyler. You are a hero.
Still building upper body strength so I did 5 rounds of:
10 Pull ups and 10 Dips
21 95# SDHP
Tyler you're a hero.
Thanks for the motivation Josh
Muscle-ups on bar, and did high-pulls with 50lb ruck.
42 sdhp w/ ruck
I always feel bad when I can't do a hero workout as rx'd, but hopefully this was a somewhat worthy sub. It's always strange doing a hero workout. Every other workout I do, I am doing for myself. When I do a hero workout though, it feels as if I am doing it for someone else. In these cases, the hero.
There's isn't quite the same gratification as when I complete a normal WoD. It's almost a feeling of sadness or futility in knowing that no matter how hard I throw myself at the workout, it won't bring that hero back. To me it really hammers home the gravity of that soldier's sacrifice, and really helps me appreciate what our men and women in uniform face every day so that I can go to the gym every day in relative safety.
Tyler, I can't match your sacrifice by this WoD, but I hope through the pain that wherever you are, you know how much we appreciate what you have done.
god watch over you and your family.
see you in the fiddler's green brother.

Not happy w/time. Payback for last night's cheat meal? Still can't do consecutive MU w/o dropping off the rings. Had to correct a few "purring kitty" reps on the SDHP towards the end. Never had a problem w/that before.
Always sad to see a new Hero WOD posted. RIP Lt. Parten.
15:29 as Rx'D
hit it hard for Tyler RIP man.
I almost got to throw up... Maybe next time
Okay, my arms are toasted...LOL....
Did 4 rounds plus 4 MU's* in 30:55, not exactly as prescribed.
*= All Muscle Ups were Progressions starting with a jump. Bottom of the rings was at approximately 6" from ground.
Started the SDHP's and was doing them a little wrong, so got some help to correct my form on the first round. It really helped through the next 3 rounds.
In the 5th round the MU's were sloppy to the point of being dangerous and I got a little dizzy after coming off the 4th one, so I stopped before getting hurt. Might have been able to go ahead and at least do the last set of SDHP's, but felt like I would have been risking it.
Subbed bar muscle ups; as rx'd:
Good day for stringing together MUs.
Subbed Musle-ups for dips. Otherwise as Rx'd:
Thoroughly disgusted with myself today. Completely stressed out with school work and couldn't get it off my mind. Stopped WAY too many times and just kept thinking about stuff... mental fatigue sucks...blah =(
Subbed 3 pull ups and 1 ring dip for each MU
65# on SDHP
did 30 muscleups yesterday for fun...felt it today
i'll have to do this one tomorrow...gym wasn't open before I had duty.
can't wait till tomorrow, new Hero WOD's are always a plus
Assisted Muscle Ups. Did my first 2 full muscle ups ever though unassisted! So stoked!
21:03 as rx'd but not starting with arms internally rotated on mu's. Only second time I've used 95#'s for high pulls and felt much easier this time. My perception of the term heavy continues to evolve!

14:05 - as rxd
Scaled to 10 pullups and 10 bar-dips/rd, 85lb SDHP's. Respect to Tyler and sympathy to his family and friends.
Can't do muscle-ups. No rings and not strong enough.
Subbed 105# assist Pull-ups and Dips.
100# Sumo Deadlift High Pull
No rings at local mega-gym. My alternative is to do an equal number of full-range of motion pullups & dips.
Wonder if Tyler would be alive today if Obama didn't continue to waffle hem & haw supporting the troops as the chain of command is requesting. Not like Obama hasn't had almost a year (election night till now), to figure out a strategy. Guess business killing cap 'n tax and health care deform is more important than winning a war.
5 rounds of
21 SDHP as posted
Need rings, reckon muscle ups will be faster
Need to work out a proper warm up strategy as the first set is always the hardest.
AMRAP in 13 minutes . .
200m(approx. distance) run
Max rep pull ups
Didnt not count rounds or reps but it was not pretty for sure.
44 mins. bar muscle-ups,don't have rings.
almost broke my arm when it slipped in between the bar and the support bar above it in the middle of round 2, but I finished it.
subbed 1 muscle up for 4 pullups and 4 dips.
Rx'd everything else, and killed me
first WOD as rx'd when muscle-ups are involved.
subbed 21 pullups & dips for muscle ups
expect Lt Parten was a tough "mother" since his workout sure is. Rest In Peace American Hero
Scaled to 3 rounds:
First WOD after over a week of being sick. Still not feeling my best so I couldn't push at 100%. Those SDHPs are really tough if you're not fully there mentally or physically!
Subbed: 4 pullups/4 ring dips = 1 muscle up
-All done wearing 20# vest.
Total pullups: 140
Total ring dips: 140
subbed 21 pull-ups and 7 ring dips for 7 MU's
Did "Tyler" at the base the Lt Tyler was deployed to in Afghanistan.....added a 1.2 mile run in my body armor to the gym then did "Tyler" in 26:01......threw in 18 'knees to elbows' then ran back to my compound, 1.2 miles, in my body armor.....RIP Lt!
Considering my first round was unbroken and completed under 2 minutes, this was a terrible time. ALL my time was spent on muscle-ups from rounds 3-5. I had so many failed attempts. Something about the SDHPs completely ruined my ability to pull myself over into the transition. A good chunk of my time was wasted just waiting for the ability to do a MU to return. Very disappointed, i know i can do better.
21 Jumping Pullups
21 Feet elevated on bench hands on Pullup Apparatus Pushups

That was really intense....
As rx'd (bar muscle-ups) - 11:52.
Chest and triceps were way too sore for ring muscle-ups.
I could go sub 10 on this for sure if I could fix my bar muscle-up so that I don't go over one side as soon as I'm tired. I started doing that from rep 1 of round 2.

Thank you crossfit and crossfitters for great challenges and new accomplishments!!!!!!!!!!

thank you, Sir
Subbed 4 pullups/4 dips for each muscle up (4 pullups and then 4 dips, 7 times; not 28 pullups and then 28 dips).
I was definitely pacing myself, but I didn't think I spent a lot of time resting. Disappointing, but I'll just beat it next time. Hope we don't have to see too many more new hero workouts.
SDHPs were all unbroken, but the muscle-ups smoked me. The rings were very low, so I couldn't get the gigantic kip I usually do. :) Still, I think that was more of a mental than a physical barrier. Better next time!
Did this at Camp Taji.
Rest in gods sweet arms.Another of americas best paying the ultimate price.To his loved ones left behind we pray you find peace.
I wish I knew Tyler was a CF'er. I've known him since we spent all of Beast summer and plebe year together. Allah yerhamu. See you later, Tyler.

"Tyler" -- with some scaledowns
I'm in the hotel gym in San Fran, so had to modify:
5 rounds of:
21 pullups (on the bar of a Smith machine)
21 SDHPs -- 70 lbs. total weight on a curl bar
Pullups were nasty hard - the bar on the Smith machine was too low for me to really kip on these, so after round 1, it was mostly 4's and 3's with some singles at the end. Dips were also challenging, but close to normal for bar dips. SDHPs - I got excited with having a real barbell (even if only a curl bar), but it only had 25's on it, so it was a tradeoff vs. dumbbells.
Today was tough as I had minimal time before the conference reception this evening, just glad to get this one done.
last 2 sets of MUs had to cheat on final 3-4 reps with jump
30/m/71"/184#/Camp Taji, Iraq
I keep losing my false grip once I get tired, and I get stuck just before the dip position.
Tyler was a good friend of one of my Crossfit brothers here in Iraq. Thank you, Crossfit, for honoring him with this workout. I'm sure it would have meant something to him and I know it does for his friends.
Muscle Ups scaled to head height.

Got my first muscle up today and actually used them in this workout, albiet, about 1 every 30 seconds!
As Rx'd. 7 mu, 21 sdlhp 5 rounds
As rx'd 16 mins.
sub'd 3 pullups and 3 dips for each muscle-up. Only managed 3 rounds due to time constraint and general exhaustion and nausea. I almost puked.

95 pound Sumo-deadlift high-pull, 21 reps x 5 rounds
21 dips x 5 rounds
21 pullups x 5 rounds
~33:25(not including the mile) - this accounts for having to walk across the gym and start pullups once the Sumos and dips were done. If I did it any other way at the gym I would have lost the bar. Pullups were done on their own.
14:49 as Rx. Rocked the muscle ups... knew the sumo's would be y weak point but still did alright on them. RIP Tyler.

This seemed pretty easy on the dips/high-pulls, but, again, I cannot do more than 8 pull-ups at a clip. Pull-ups always seem to be holding me back.
RIP Lt. Tyler. As a police officer, I think of soldiers as my brothers.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

First time to do muscle-ups unassisted. Completed only 3 rounds.
It hurt, I was slow. I actually tried gaming this one instead of going all out, no verdict on that yet, all signs currently pointing to no. Also my last round I went from doing the straight dip bars to doing ring dips because some clowns were over on the dip bars, probably better for me anyway

I am the mother of 1st Lt Tyler Parten. Though I've worked out most my life, Tyler introduced me to crossfit two years ago. When he would come home for a visit he would put me through a workout til I was almost sick. I would time him through his and stand in amazement at the way he could push himself. When he went to Afganhastan, he trained his platoon on the side of the mountains with crossfit. At the time of his death he was lean and ripped. Thank you for honoring him in this way. He would be so proud! Esp. with the muscle ups.
We have lost so many, so fast from 4-4 in the last few months. I know that 1Lt. Parten will strengthen the resolve and determination of his fellow fire breathers in 3-61, 1-12, 2-12, 2-77, and the COLT's. With his sacrifice, will further rid the region of hatred, greed and ignorance. RIP 1Lt. Parten and in peace we all shall find you

So bud, I went through the Level One certification last week. I wore the black band in remembrance, and hope I made you proud. My thoughts go back to us creating a workout plan on the OP, shoving c-wire stakes in the HESCO for dips and cannabalizing the bowflex cables and attaching them to trees to create the ultimate firebase workout gym. Then there was walking in on you and Russ taping each other to grade your progress, awkward. The workout is as tough as you were. “It is not the critic who counts, nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; Who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who, at the worst, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

I know you're at peace, but definitely not resting. Forging Destiny...
