Holy one-armed Fran Batman!!!

Comment #5 - Posted by: Aaron Arehart at November 12, 2009 4:54 PM

Rob Orlando is a beast and very impressive no doubt.....I just don't get the one arm Fran? Don't get me wrong, I could'nt do it. But I don't get it.

Comment #6 - Posted by: Timmer at November 12, 2009 4:59 PM

wow, Rob you are the man. you have to even it up, now do it with switched arms.

I think i hurt my rotator cuff, so i have to lay off for a bit. i remember the 2pood being really heavy after a 800m run

I just hope everyone who tries 1-arm kipping pull-ups tomorrow warms up really well first. That was impressive.

Good thing I'm not doing Eva until tonight.

Does Rob ever do a WOD without the camera on him?

Comment #17 - Posted by: Kyle at November 12, 2009 6:01 PM

Rob,

you crazy bastard, haha.very good stuff being original, don't know how you balanced through all those reps....whats next? The 1 leg blind folded mile run with a 200lbs keg on your back?

....all kidding aside, damn good effort!

Comment #18 - Posted by: Masso at November 12, 2009 6:06 PM

Comment #19- Kyle:

If you could do a one armed Fran, I'm pretty sure you'd tape it too.

Comment #19 - Posted by: CB at November 12, 2009 6:08 PM

I hope Rob never does a WOD without filming, we might miss something AMAZING!

That was cool!

Comment #20 - Posted by: PXT Cody at November 12, 2009 6:11 PM

Did you SEE his heels get off the ground?!?! How can HQ keep allowing such poor form to be posted on the main page? And he wasn't even getting his chest to the bar on the pull-ups. Maybe next time he can be a real man and do it all with the same arm. Shameful I say, shameful.

;)

Comment #21 - Posted by: ted at November 12, 2009 6:19 PM

that was the craziest video I've ever seen on this site. the dude is nuts. I think 11:17 is about where I come in on a normal Fran routine.

Comment #22 - Posted by: phil at November 12, 2009 6:19 PM

I'll measure this with a damn calendar, not a stopwatch.

Comment #23 - Posted by: rlh at November 12, 2009 6:19 PM

Awesome. My buddy and I watched it, speechless. Rob is an absolute beast, and one of my CF heroes :)

Journal note from my last visit with Eva

"There are few lonelier places in a gym than the third 800m leg of Eva when you realise you're not even half way through"

Comment #25 - Posted by: nick in sydney m/37/6ft/183 at November 12, 2009 6:22 PM

Why not do one arm FRAN!!, I don't see anybody else doing it. FRAN has been done a million times by thousands people, why not change it up for the fun of it. Sometimes it is not about the fastet time or the most reps but doing something that you set your eyes on and that no one else wants to do. I work out with the man all the time and that is what seperates him from the rest, his sick twisted mind deciding to do something like that, your an animal bobby!!!

Comment #26 - Posted by: Mike at November 12, 2009 6:25 PM

comment #23-Ted

Let's see your video Theodore? your gonna call him out on his ROM doing a ONE ARMED FRAN!!! LAst time i checked FRAN wasn't chest to bar. As long as people are doing these crazy ass WOD's there's always gonne be some hater calling people out becasue they can't do it.I bet you are a trainer at NYSC and all pissed off cause your program is crap.

I think Ted was joking man. Mix in a clue!!!

Comment #28 - Posted by: KB at November 12, 2009 6:42 PM

way to detect sarcasm Mike. Wouldn't know it if it bit you on the *ss...

This ought to be entertaining tomorrow morning..

Comment #29 - Posted by: dan m at November 12, 2009 6:45 PM

To all form Nazis/newbies/pricks. Chest to bar pullups was a standard created for competition in the 2008 games. Just because that was the standard then doesn't mean its the standard ALL THE TIME. Pullups can either be done with chest to bar or just CHIN to bar, and in this case it was chin to bar which is totally legit.

Comment #30 - Posted by: Truth.com at November 12, 2009 6:50 PM

#15 Newbie - hope you're kidding. This is one of the top 3 toughest WODs we do, and I strongly encourage you not to try it. If tomorrow's your first day doing crossfit, try this instead: 4 rounds for time: 400m run, 50 squats. That in itself will be a gasser for you.

Comment #31 - Posted by: Chris H at November 12, 2009 6:50 PM

That is one of the most amazing videos ever posted and there have been alot. Rob is an animal.

Mike, settle down dude, it was a joke.

Comment #32 - Posted by: Aaron Wilson at November 12, 2009 6:52 PM

Wow Mike and Truth, proof that even meatheads do crossfit...

Comment #33 - Posted by: dan m at November 12, 2009 6:57 PM

The 2 times I've done this, my pull-ups were chin above bar and swings were not American style swings (45 degrees between American and Russian style). Those two times were both in the 40-something time domain, and were both done with pre-surgery shoulders.

Tomorrow, I challenge myself and all true Crossfitters to follow form to a "T": do Chest-to-Bar Pull-ups and true American style Kettlebell Swings.

I'm scared of this WOD. I can hardly wait!

Comment #34 - Posted by: Herm at November 12, 2009 6:58 PM

Cookie- thanks for the compliment!

Eva is one of my favorite wods. And I don't even like pull ups ;)

Erin

Comment #35 - Posted by: in8girl at November 12, 2009 7:02 PM

This is the toughest, most painful WOD I have ever done.

Let's get some.

Comment #36 - Posted by: Playoff Beard at November 12, 2009 7:07 PM

Rob, that was outstanding. You are a tremendous athlete.

On another note, what is the advantage of doing the American Swing vs the Russian swing? The RKC standard is the Russian swing. I do both, and find value in both. Just wondering why Crossfit encourages only the American swing in WOD's calling for KB swings.

Comment #37 - Posted by: Tony at November 12, 2009 7:11 PM

I'm scared...this is the exact opposite of what I felt the night before Christmas when I was a kid.

Ahhh! I really want to view the one-armed fran video (and other video content on the sight) but whenever I click on the link it says that internet explorer cannot display the page, and can't diagnose why. extremely annoying. Has anyone else had this issue, or even better, know how to fix it??

Comment #42 - Posted by: Mike W at November 12, 2009 7:48 PM

My cold is almost gone, I ate crap today, and my foot is still jacked, but I thought why not give CFT a whirl for the heck of it.... new total of 495!! Woot! #95 sp, (tied PR)#180 bs (tied PR) #215 dl new PR :) Funny, how some days you just dont think you have it in you and you end up kickin butt :) GO HARD FRAT!

Comment #43 - Posted by: Cookie at November 12, 2009 8:49 PM

what is the difference between american and russian style kettlebell swings?

Comment #44 - Posted by: Davis at November 12, 2009 9:00 PM

last time i did this workout it was in October 1st, my time was 50:19, hopefully this time i beat my last time and the 45 minute mark, after this workout i took about 2 weeks of rest in october because of school. I love this workout though, hopefully the next day workout is not going to be the Murph! HAHAHA, that's going to suck! but hey don't let the Little voice get to you! TAME THE VOICE and push your selves to the Limit!, or pass the limits because every second counts!

Comment #46 - Posted by: Cookie at November 12, 2009 9:02 PM

#39 Tony,

The American swing enables higher horsepower, because the distance between the two “turn-around” points is longer.

#40 Steve,

The Zone diet was adopted by CrossFit about the same time Dr. Sears’ first book was published in 1995. It’s used by CrossFit because it maximizes athletic performance.

#36 Herm,

The workout doesn’t call for chest-to-bar pull-ups. For almost all of us, substituting chest-to-bar pull-ups would drastically decrease intensity and horsepower.

Comment #47 - Posted by: Latham M/29/182 at November 12, 2009 9:11 PM

Rob Orlando is awesome. PERIOD.

Nice job, honey...I'm proud of you! Now rest that foot!

Comment #50 - Posted by: Latham M/29/182

Your holy grail seems to be power output. My holy grail is good movement. I cannot afford to be sloppy, due to my recent shoulder surgeries, and strict standards help me move better.

I've thought about this workout tonight, and I will scale down. A 5 round C2B Helen seems like a sound compromise.

Comment #49 - Posted by: Herm at November 12, 2009 9:28 PM

i love how all of these people did not catch the sarcasm in ted's post. he even put a little wink that the end for christ's sake!

i like rob orlando more everyday. he seems like a fun guy, not to mention a beast of a crossfitter. keep killin' it rob!!!

Comment #50 - Posted by: jake at November 12, 2009 9:38 PM

Not bad, but could Rob have done it without the aid of those socks? Doubt it.

Could you be kind enough to point us to the scientific literature that shows it "maximizes athletic performance"?

Justin (#59):

The scientific literature showing that Zone maximizes athletic performance is over there in the bucket with the scientific literature showing that Crossfit is a good fitness regime.

In other words, there isn't any--people just do it and it seems to work better than other options.

And frankly, empirical evidence like this is sometimes enough--and I say this as a professional physicist. Scientific studies are incredibly important, but so focused they can often be misleading. Nutrition advice from both science and quackery is all over the map, and has been for years. If athletes (to whom health and physical effectiveness are arguably more important than to average folks) seem to agree that Zone improves performance, then that's at least something--and they seem to (do searches).

Mind you, I still don't do it, because I'm a lazy bastard who can't be bothered to measure. But I do use the general guidelines as, well, guidelines.

Comment #72 - Posted by: TREVOR at November 13, 2009 5:06 AM

What is the difference between a regular kettlebell swing and a "2pood kettlebell swing"?? Also when I got interested in the kettlebell, I went out and bought one that I thought was going to be heavy (25 lbs back then) and now I can toss that thing around like it's nothing. I want to make my workouts harder, but don't want to go out and buy another kettlebell. Any suggestions??

Comment #73 - Posted by: Styx at November 13, 2009 5:24 AM

Speaking of kettlebells:
I spent Saturday and Sunday at Jeff Martone’s Kettlebell Certification. Wow, that was more than I expected! We learned how to do the Russian and American swing, power swing, cleans, snatches, Turkish getups, arm bar stretches… double cleans, one arm swings, transfers from one hand to the other… it was A LOT of kettlebell work! I have to say though that I now understand how thoroughly hard this tool can be when used in a workout. 5 power swings had me panting!!

Also, the biggest AHA moment of the weekend was when Jeff Martone explained the concept of tension. I heard bits and pieces about it before, but I didn't really grasp it.

Jeff Martone had us doing military presses. I had a 26lb bell. This was fine with my right hand, but I could only get 1-2 solid reps out with my left. We went through a progression of trying presses while clenching our free hand hard while pressing. Even that little item helped my strength in the press. Then we clenched the free hand and tightened our lats. That helped more! Next we did all of that and added gripping the floor with our toes and corkscrewing our feet against the floor (effectively tightening our legs and butts). Finally, we added a hissing exhalation to it all. I was amazed at how much this tension in seemingly unrelated muscles helped strengthen that one lift!! Major AHA moment and something I will use for my other strength work. I bet I can add 5-10lbs to my squat and deadlift from that alone. Crazy stuff.

Jeff Martone also stressed mobility and rehab/injury prevention. He discussed different learning styles and I realized that I’m a “digital learner”, meaning that I need something like progressions that breaks something new down into steps and builds on them. I’m also a kinetic/visual learner and need to see/feel things. Try to tell me verbally how to do an exercise and I am lost after the first 5 words!

I’m really glad I got to this cert. I learned a hell of a lot I would never have caught onto on my own. Having been to a few certs now, I'd rate this the #1 to get to.

Comment #74 - Posted by: Camille/F/38/132ish/5'4" at November 13, 2009 5:28 AM

Really Impressive 1 Arm Fran. I did a 1 arm fran recently at my level 1 cert as I was fresh out of shoulder surgery but I just did 35 KB Thrusters and Jumping Pulls with 1 arm. This was a true feat of strength. Super Inspiring!

Comment #75 - Posted by: MaryStella F/32/5'6"/135 NEPA crossfit at November 13, 2009 5:29 AM

RE to Comment #73:

Camille, I agree. Very few people can hold a two-day fitness workshop on their own, and Jeff Martone is one of them. There is MUCH more to kettlebells than the American Swing; I can't figure out why people spend so much money to buy a kettlebell or a rack of bells for an affiliate, only to miss out on nineteen other movements if they haven't been to a KB cert, which is an AWESOME way to spend $500. I learned an incredible amount of information and plan to go back to a "refresher" soon.

I mean, really, no WODS with a WBS or TGU? Come ON, man!

Comment #76 - Posted by: J.T. at November 13, 2009 5:35 AM

Have had pain in my foot for the past week or so. Doc diagnosed it as tendonitis and not Jones or Avulsion fracture. Recommended very low impact for the next week or so on the foot.

What is a good sub for 800m? Mountain climbers? Any other ideas?

Comment #83 - Posted by: B Bowen at November 13, 2009 6:45 AM

For all of us lucky enough to watch and WOD with Rob on a daily basis, regardless of the ROM police, strength vs. metcon debates, wether or not to video tape this stuff (and post it for others to see), we recognize that Rob is a guy who opens your eyes to what you can do if you put your mind to it. Rob's first (successful) attempt at a 1-arm pullup came only 4-days prior to this video being filmed. Very few people go from completing a single rep of a complex movement to attempting a workout like this simply to see if it can be done. Having an influence like this opens your mind to your own abilities. This forum is meant to open conversation and debate among our community and any shortcomings will always be put under the microscope (similar to the efficacy of Crossfit within the fitness community in general). Nonetheless, whether or not every rep is perfect, I truly hope Rob (and all the elite athletes within our ranks) continue posting these videos because I guarantee there are crossfitters out there whose physical and mental limits will be expanded and who will become better athletes after watching something like this. I am one of them.

Nice work Bobby. Sorry for the miscount.

vputz #67,

Well put. Empirical evidence, or even consistent anectodal evidence over large cohorts, is often the best that is available in fitness and diet. The challenge for CF, or indeed any fitness system, is to harness the data in a way that is meaningful. It seems nearly impossible to apply the types of controls over this data that would be similar to the controls we exert in medicine or you exert in physics. Therefore, the power of the evidence is always somewhat less in fitness and diet.

What seems to get lost is the fact that there are two distinct sub-groups populating the Crossfit universe: regular folks looking to become more fit and more healthy (like me), and fire-breathers like Rob and those who wish to be like that. Some version of the Zone diet seems to be quite useful to both groups, although the versions may be different. Basic fitness and health? Zone "Classic". Firebreather goals? "American Athlete's Zone" with higher fat multipliers. Neither is the only way to go, of course, but both are highly effective for their respective goals, and empirical evidence exists by the "bucket-full" here an in CF Affiliates to back that up.

Thanks for your helpful post.

I have read on Project Weight Loss that calisthenics like pull-ups, push-ups, and reverse crunches shouldn't be missed in workout routine. Don’t forget your legs. You need to work out each part of your body. Recovery is needed too. Your muscles grow when you rest. Get your 8 hours sleep. Do you have a casual lifestyle? Then a post-workout nap will be welcomed.

to get into the thrusters, rob one-arm power cleans the bar (a fat bar looks like). it didn't occur to me until the second round because he made it look effortless. that was cool.

Vputz and Bingo

I concur with both of your statements. The remedy to these, I believe, is a bridge between the exercise physiology world and the health behavior world. With a program as encompassing/multifacited as Crossfit both fields have to be considered in order to provide applicable information.

Science is often slow and merely a form of validation of what practitioners already know. None-the-less the research is important. In due time gentlemen will a track of research be presented addressing both fields of science.

This WOD is a notch under "Murph" when you rate it's difficulty. I have yet to fully complete this, I always run out of gas. I have attempted this WOD three times, but I have improved with each. It seems each time this WOD comes up, I just come off several days of long shifts (12 hrs +).
I guess it will only make me stronger.

This attempt:
Completed 3 full rounds in 25:45.
Rounds 4 and 5 had to cut the runs to 400m.

WOW, this wood killed me!!! Got it done in 35:34, had to scale the pull-ups!

I have a question for all of you? First off I am a Physical Education teacher at an inner city school in San Diego. I am helping starting the sports programs here at our school. I am the varsity boys AND girls basketball coach and the varsity baseball coach. I NEED HELP!!! I need it in a very bad way. My first bball practice was yesterday kids showed up in flats (girls) guys had skate boarding shoes on. When I asked about their shoes they said, "its all I have." I am trying to find a way to get our kids some basketball shoes. I KNOW that its hard right now to come up with money and what not. BUT THESE KIDS NEED HELP. If you live in san diego please contact me if you want to help us out OR if you want to come visit our school first and then help. I just really want to try to get our kids what they deserve. If you would like to hear our schools story let me know. I think you would be floored with the things our kids go through just to get here. If any of you know the area of Southeast san diego you know what I'm talking about.....

Well if you want to help my email is jlewis@gomperscharter.org

THANKS SO MUCH!!

Bingo on Sunday you talked about how one makes it through a WOD. Well, for me EVA has always been my toughest mental challenge. After round one, I always feel ready to throw in the towel. During round two, I have to tell myself that getting through round two is the biggest obstacle. When I'm done with the run in round three I know I can make it. After I've completed round three, I know I'm going to finish and I start strategizing how I'm going to do round four and round five's KB swings and Pull-ups and I set a time to beat. Round five is all about beating the time goal I set during round four's run.

Today
800m/32kg KB swing American/ Kipped Pull-ups

#59 Justin Smith,

You can look for the scientific evidence over near the giant pile of literature saying a low fat diet is healthy, and "20 minutes of exercise 3 times a week" is optimal.

Only one to find out for sure - try it yourself.

Rob I'm so proud of you man. You're not only one of the most elite crossfitters in the world, but a good friend and training partner. It takes alot of creativity and courage to try something like this and put it out there. You continue to push the limits of physical and mental conditioning. I hope people appreciate not just what you can do, but the manner in which you do it. We're really gonna have to get this Rob Orlando smear campaign off the ground now.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that had to tone this WOD down due to the fear of injury, and also that it took everyone a while to complete it. I was starting to feel like a b*tch when I looked down at my watch during round 3. I sub'd a full KB swing with a Russian Swing so I could still do the prescribed 2 pood's without killing myself.

Obviously the person is either joking (satire of the ROM police) or a complete jerk who cannot be reasoned with. Why are people feeding the trolls?

With respect, "Only one [way-sic] to find out for sure - try it yourself." doesn't find an answer my question. I'm not asking if I will see changes in myself, that those changes will come is obvious. I am asking for scientific literature supporting the claim that such a diet "maximizes athletic performance".

Justin - There is precious little literature out there for things like food. The scientific community continues to consider food as a bunch of micronutrients and then find out which of them are good and which are bad. The result is seemingly conflicting information because the control groups aren't really controlled. If you find what you are seeking please let me know. I would love to read it too. Until then I have only my own experience with a zone-ish diet. I don't get tired after lunch, I have lots of energy for my workouts, I am the leanest I have ever been and I eat whenever I am hungry (I just eat protein when I eat carb and vice versa).

Warmup: CFWU, practiced KB swings 1pood x5, 1.5pood x10

WoD: This was my 2nd encounter with Eva and I was quite nervous after the brutal first attempt, which was heavily scaled (yet still took 41:10!). After the warmup, I felt I needed to scale the KB swings to 24kg, in order to keep it safe and effective. Cause with 2pood I can only do about 7 reps half-decently so I figured 150 is far too much. I was also shooting for about 45min to complete this beast of a workout.

Wow, my time was impressive and I felt pretty good at the end of the workout! This can only mean that I am just about ready to do it as Rx'd and perhaps pick up the pace a bit more.

My runs were like short breaks and I managed my breathing pretty well. Once inside the gym, I did 20+10 or 18+12 KB swings. Then the pullups went from 15+8+7 to 7+5+4+3+3+2+2+2+2. I can minimize my breaks by bringing up the intensity a little more.

first time with Eva - 52:00
- subbed 2 Pood KB swing for 1.25 Pood as that is all my gym has.

When workouts like these are posted with high numbers of pull-ups, are they intended to be Kippings so that they can possibly be done in one set, or broken into as many sets of normal pullups as needed to complete?
Thanks

Doc's appointment at 12 Noon to meet up before he ordered the Hip MRI. He poked around on it and thinks it is a Glute Med. tear (same thing he said earlier this year.)

"Eva" is basically a monster Helen, so I decided to do a Chest-to-Bar Helen with American style KB Swings:

"Helen"
3 rounds for time:
Run 400m
21 American style KB Swings @ 24kg
Chest-to-Bar Pull-ups

Time: 11:10.

I could only do 1 pull-up at a time, the bars outside at FIT did not allow me to push off the top and kip as I normally do.

Asthma followed me around all morning after this.

My first at home WOD. Was cool to run up the driveway, pick up the KB and start swinging away, then to the doorway for pull ups. Goat observed the WOD (and my desperate attempts to breathe with nearly closed bronchioles) and decided today was a rest day :)

We have a Paleo kitchen- which means fridge filled to overflowing with eggs, chicken, pork, veggies and fruit, freezer full of burgers, steaks, roasts, bags of shrimp, and then nearly cabinets :)

At the park. Very tough. I am heartened that I was able to complete today - when I first saw this come up last December, I was like, "No f-in way!" Runs were between 3:45 and 4:30. Swings were 30 / 21-9, and then 15-10-5 for the rest. Pullups were pretty consistent, though my grip was trashed from the swings - on each round, I did a first set of 10, then mini-sets of 5. Splits per round were: 7:00, 8:30, 8:45, 10:30, and 8:45. At least that is what I remember...my brain was turned off for most of this. You know it's a tough WOD when you can't remember which lap of the 800 you're on (there are only two, after all)!

Have you read any of Dr. Sears' books? They are chock full of scientific evidence of the benefits of zone diet. To my knowlege, there are no published experimental data sets but the evidence is proven when considering the elite athletes who have trained with it. Also, Dr. Sears is an expert in lipid (fat) analysis and the way it works and does not work in the body. He developed the zone after years and years of fat research and how to prevent and treat disease. The fact that it is perfect for athletes turned out to be more of a side effect than the prescription. Try it and read the book.

23/m/176/5'9"

34 minutes
5 rounds of:
800m run
20 kb swing (19 kg)
20 pulls (bout half dead hang, half jumping)

Ugh scaled down a little too far and could have done better but still glad I finished. This is just a fantastic workout that tests your conditioning, explosiveness, strength, and heart.
Thank You Crossfit

"Eva"

Five rounds for time of:
Run 800 meters
2 pood Kettlebell swing, 30 reps
30 Pull-ups C2B ALL
time 56:49

last time it toomk me 56:34 but I scaled the KB, and I don't know if I did C2B probably not, maybe, it wasnt noted, so probably not.

The runs were in the dark I had trouble finding our mark and out ran the 400m mark on first two runs, not by much, but I was barely runnig trying to find the mark.

Funny thing I wanted to quit on the first and start of the second round. But I told myself to finish it. The rest was ok, KB's were rough. Pullups were good. Last round I died on. it went 10,5,2,3,5,2,1,1,1.

Glad to finish it. I want to do tomarrows. It looks good except the 5 round part. but that wont be as hard as today!

Comment #278 - Posted by: Don - Milton ON. at November 13, 2009 7:06 PM

Decided to step up my training so i'm slowly gonna work in two wods a day, twice a week.
First Wod:
95lb hang power snatch
400m run
15:37Rx
and of course "Eva":
35:13 scaled the 2 pood to 1.5 to keep up intensity. traps and shoulders were already sizzlin from earlier also, baby steps, baby steps. Finally starting to fine tune my diet, no energy loss during Eva, just a little cramping in the quads and calves. Feeling great though!

Comment #279 - Posted by: Quest at November 13, 2009 7:18 PM

As Rx'd. 1:06:19.
Kipping pullups, American Swings.

I did Eva as RXd the day she was unveiled, it must have been March or April of 2008.

Today, scaled to 3 rounds and held back on the intensity. Still a rough time. Swings were pristine in form, didn't feel a need to break the sets; broke the pullups to like 20-25 sets, though.

Loved this workout. First time doing it.

Don't have a 2 pood yet so used my 44lb Kettle bell.

M/40/155 Everything RX'd except for the Kettlebell
34:04 Third cycle was the hardest for me. Forearms were pumped beyond normal for this one and holding onto the bar was a problem for the final 2 pull up rounds. Any advice on reducing the amount of "pump" in the arms would be great.

Have a great weekend.

Comment #305 - Posted by: nico at November 14, 2009 12:36 AM

Sucks...i had a fat cramp in my calf on round 4 as I fast on fridays and my electrolytes are low. Bad timing for a killer WOD.

I limped back home the last half of the 800 and by then had to get to work.

Somewhere around 38:00 (I'm a slow ass)

sub'd a 45lb DB for the KB. 2 pood would flip me over. LOL

Pullups were rocking though! my kipping is getting better.

Increased work capacity is increased work capacity. If Rob gets more proficient at one armed fran then dont you think his two armed fran time will come down? Why do we do any lifts that are outside the norm? Isn't that what crossfit is all about?

Being doing CF for just over a week now. If it wasn't of those swings at 70 lbs it wouldn't be so bad, I had to take breaks at each 5-10 reps, they killed me. Looking forward to the next time I do it.

My 400m started faster than ever, but I got progressively slower (as usual). I used a 35# dumbell for my swings. Broke up all sets of pull-ups, which started out strict, then went to jumping after I did 15 in the second round.

Hope this post works...my last few didn't come through for some reason.

Did a scaled version of "Eva" after a tough crew practice of 4x2k at race pace yesterday.

3 rounds for time of...
800m. run as rx'd
1 1/2 pood KB swing x 30
Pullups as rx'd (all sets broken)

Came in at 20:53. Not the fastest guy out there and each set was significantly slower than the next, but as I improve, I'm focusing on placing extra emphasis on the pace of these longer workouts and not burning myself on the first set.

So...just when I think I am making progress at XFit, I have to see Rob Orlando doing one arm Fran...I am not sure whether Coach is trying to motivate me or depress the hell out of me...

Also, can someone please DNA test Rob Orlando to determine if he is actually human and not some extra-terrestrial sent to Earth to show us how weak and puny we are...

I seem to be saying after each workout 'THIS WAS THE HARDEST ONE EVER I SWEAR' its become a recurring theme...but I really think this was the hardest one I have ever done! Started in September, and really enjoying it.

53:20 of pure pain. I could have thrown in the towel after the first frickin round!

CFWU-3. Reg except 12 pushups instead of PU 2nd. Superman. No Burgener. 2 min DU.
43:57-PR
7:05,8:48,9:21,10:15,8:21
All runs inside. Prob helped time. Most PU using ace bandages on bar beside steps. Tough to keep bandages positioned wide enough. Used other bar for last set. KB pretty consistent 15+10+5. Tried to push harder on later run laps once I recovered. Still need to go much faster though.
6/30: 47:01
12/23: 47:08
2/24/08: 45:36 w/1 pood.

This is the first wod since I started Crossfit that I have been almost afraid before saying 3-2-1-GO! but I broke it into sets of 10 reps and that made it easier to get through. Surprised myself in the end.
