I remember reading here that doing a lot of jumping pull-ups was bad for you...

Well, I've been Crossfitting without posting for about 9 months now, and decided today that from now on, I need to step up and start posting my times. ...Looks like I chose a rough workout to end the silence! The only question is whether my time here will come out in the weeks range, or months...

Comment #13 - Posted by: CRPoole M/21/185/6'3" at January 19, 2010 5:19 PM

Looking forward to a bingo post on the jumping pullups particularly if we cant chain 100 without assistance.

Comment #14 - Posted by: Christopher Putnam at January 19, 2010 5:22 PM

I call these Plurpees, Its sounds better. Kinda like "involuntary manslaughter" sounds better than "oops!"

G.I. Jane....

There goes the hands.

Comment #16 - Posted by: sdt at January 19, 2010 5:23 PM

I'd like to echo what NickDeventer was saying. I know there are certain circumstances when jumping pullups are really bad for you, and others where they are OK. Can someone please explain when they are OK, and when they are not. I don't see the big issue with them, but I am not about to put myself in harm's way either. Having said that, I'm sure there is a great explanation out there.

Comment #17 - Posted by: Schro at January 19, 2010 5:24 PM

CRPoole, welcome! i've been here a while, and i've never done this one, we'll bust it out together, ha!

100 burpee pullups!!! get some!!!

Comment #18 - Posted by: fat tony 5'3"/155/30 at January 19, 2010 5:24 PM

What is a burpee pull up ?

Like a burpee but when you jump - you are jumping to a bar and then doing a pull up ?

Comment #19 - Posted by: Arnar Freyr Magnússon at January 19, 2010 5:24 PM

Jack's back! Just sayin...

Welcome back. Did you enjoy your Rest Day? You're a newcomer, so you DID rest, right? This 3-on/1-off stuff can get rough if you don't do the 1-off part. If you are truly new to Crossfit let's play it straight for a couple of months before freelancing, OK?

Let's talk for just a minute about recovery. With the exception of injury, some folks feel that over-training really doesn't exist, it's just a matter of under-recovery. If you really listen to world-class athletes, Crossfit Games competitor types and Olympic competitors, you hear about not only their work-outs but also about their pre- and post-workout regimens. If you are like me and you have a day job it's mandatory that you think about recovery, sleep, working with soreness, etc. Think about this when you here someone ask "Is that all there is?" It's not enough just to do more; if you do more you must also recover "more".

100 Bupree/Pull-ups for time. This is also known as "GI Jane", and indeed I think there's a video of Greg Amundsen doing this somewhere on the web site. 8-something if I remember correctly. You should still do some kind of warm-up. If you do the CFWU you might want to drop the PU and just do the rest.

Do a Burpee. You can do a squat thrust and a push-up, or do a speed drop to your chest from a standing position. In any event the first move is get from standing to chest and quads on the ground. Move from this position back to upright, jumping right into a Pull-up. This is the epitome of a jumping pull-up--chest on the ground to a JPU! One. Rinse and repeat 99 more times. Don't forget to start your stopwatch before rep one. Push stop after rep 100.

This is a met-con FOR TIME. As fast as possible. Not only should you NOT do negatives on the pull-up, but you will actually go faster if you PUSH yourself DOWN at the top, even pushing down in to the "flop" to your chest for the next rep. "Ideally" the bar is 1 foot above your standing reach. Work with what you have, just record what you did so that you can compare results when this comes up again.

"GI Jane", 100 Burpee Pull-ups for time. 3-2-1...Go.

AKA "G.I. Jane"

11:58 as rx'd

Comment #21 - Posted by: Ryan Torrance CA at January 19, 2010 5:28 PM

...oh yeah, scaling. This is a 10-12:00 WOD for a newcomer. Pick a number of Burpee PU you can do in 10-12:00. IMO your max time for this is 15:00. Scale by using a lower bar, maybe even not above your reach at all. This will make it more "Jump" and less "Pull". NO NEGATIVES.

Now, I got Jack on DVR, so if you'll excuse me...

Comment #22 - Posted by: bingo at January 19, 2010 5:29 PM

woot!

Hell yeah i love GI Jane....i did her for my birthday wod....this is gonna be fun. Beating my PR, 15:17.

Comment #25 - Posted by: Amy at January 19, 2010 5:31 PM

There is a video of this workout from July '07 here:

http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/CrossFit_AmundsonGIJane.wmv
http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/CrossFit_AmundsonGIJane.mov

Jumping pullups are a dangerous substitute for someone who has little exposure to pullups in general, especially when the negative is exaggerated (slowed). Also, jumping pullups are typically done with the bar well below your reach. This is recommending the bar a foot over your reach, which is much more demanding.

The easiest substitutions are a lower bar and fewer reps.

Comment #26 - Posted by: TonyB at January 19, 2010 5:32 PM

What if I use the door as my pull-up bar? Yeah, I know, ghetto, but yeah. I'll see how I can do it, looks like an awesome workout regardless.

Comment #27 - Posted by: Dan Orozco at January 19, 2010 5:37 PM

is one foot above max reach mean one foot when standing on tip toes or flat footed?

Comment #28 - Posted by: Jimmy at January 19, 2010 5:37 PM

YES! I love this WOD.

Comment #29 - Posted by: Steven M. Platek, Ph.D. at January 19, 2010 5:39 PM

does one foot above max reach mean standing one tip toes or flat footed?

Where is my bucket????

Comment #31 - Posted by: M&M at January 19, 2010 5:39 PM

would doing this workout and following it with a run be bad. Or should I follow the CFE formula 3 hours after. CFE doesnt really work for me because who has the time.

Comment #32 - Posted by: Max at January 19, 2010 5:45 PM

Can someone clearly elaborate what a "negative" means on a jumping pullup? Does that simply mean you don't go slow coming back down? Or am I supposed to be dropping from the bar (essentially)when my chin is above it? I'm confused.

Thanks

Comment #33 - Posted by: Christopher Putnam at January 19, 2010 5:46 PM

Christopher Putnam,
Just drop from the bar after each pullup.

Comment #34 - Posted by: TonyB at January 19, 2010 5:49 PM

OMG!! Those burpee backflips are insane!!! Awesome video, looks like I've got somethin' to work towards! Thanks, Coach!

Comment #35 - Posted by: Andrew at January 19, 2010 5:57 PM

Did this before I saw Bingo's post... 16:32... Closest I've ever been to pukey though :).

My lack of cardio fitness is starting to really show lately, I'm building a lot of strength but I didn't realise until I started following the mainsite WODs how much I was neglecting cardio beforehand. I think it's probably because I hate running it was a subconscious thing ;).

Comment #36 - Posted by: David at January 19, 2010 5:57 PM

holy crap this is going to be sick.

Comment #37 - Posted by: Aaron at January 19, 2010 6:08 PM

I have been doing crossfit for a long time now and love it. I have surpassed plateaus I had with traditional forms of exercise, and I did all this at a "Globo Gym". Never once have I bashed "newbies" or felt the need to pump myself up by bashing others who have questions that may be in the FAQ! I read all this stuff with CFers being a familly and supportive to each other then read some "long timer" being a smartass because someone is new or has a question that seems silly. Bingo for example, you seem like a "badass" or maybe you just like acting that way behind the security of a computer. The point to all of this is if you have a liitle knowledge of kinesiology and can swallow your pride and ask questions (even though Bingo might bash you) or talk with someone at your gym that might have some oly lifting experience you can succesfuly progress with your CF training (probably more than looking in the FAQ, or watching some lame video). In closing, ask questions work hard and you will change physically and mentally! Thanks Coach for this FREE website and exercise presriptions!

Subbing basketball for this WOD. I might do a few for fun though!

TAKING A 2 WEEK REST. WOOOO HOOOO... DONE GI JANE BEFORE AFTER A 5 MILE RUN, DID IT IN LESS THAN 10 MINUTES, I CAN ONLY IMAGINE FAT GI JANE, OR WEIGHTED GI JANE. THAT WILL BE FUN.

Comment #40 - Posted by: santi at January 19, 2010 6:15 PM

OMFG!

Of course, I just made up the squat/pull-up/squat/push-up workout today (coming off 3 days of rest), so yeah, the mere concept of burpees nearly made me boot. Sigh. ;)

As for today's results, only made it 10 minutes, and that was with an extra (uncounted) minute or two of rest worked in, as "I thought I was gonna die.' (Gilda Radner)

192 squats, 32 pull-ups, 25 push-ups. Yeah, I killed myself to not have to do upper-body stuff, and ended up completely gassed out after 4-5 rounds. fought through the rest, and kept lowering the number to subtract the squats from, as suddenly having to do 35 pull-ups was NOT going to help anything. This was awesomely difficult, and a definite lesson on pacing. Oi.

Comment #41 - Posted by: dk m/32/6'0"/226 at January 19, 2010 6:22 PM

Bingo,

Thanks for all the useful info, I'm not a newbie to this but I can see how someone starting could really use and appreciate your input.

I can't do ONE pull up, so what should I try to do instead?

#16 Schro

"Jumping Pull Ups" can be dangerous when they're done excessively. There have been many people that ended up getting Rhabdo from them and similar high rep movements. However, in "GI Jane" it's not really a "Jumping Pull Up" like you would have in the "Filthy 50". With the Burpee Pull Up, you're jumping up (1") into a pull up instead of holding on to the bar for those quick reps. Worry not gentlemen, it will be fine...after it's done sucking, LOL!!!

This is my amazing bro!!! Im soooooo proud of you, kick some ass and take some names. Complete bananas, and I love it!!!!!

I think if you would read correctly, it says world class athletes, crossfit games competitor types, and olympic competitors

Not world class athletes, such as crossfit games competitors and olympic competitors. Meaning he was not grouping them together

Our son …you are beautiful ,our calendars are marked and it is with extreme pride and excitement that we look forward to your competitions.

Comment #51 - Posted by: mom at January 19, 2010 6:46 PM

Bingo or anyone else with a suggestion:

My pullup bsr is at 7 foot and Im 6 foot (its on my daughters swingset) so would it be smart to do a burpee, then got to a pullup then... seeing as how jumping to this low bar isnt possible? when I do pullups on it I have to bend the knees if you can picture it then you see my dilemma. But Im really siked about this WOD so please if anyone has any thoughts, post it, I read the posts about 5 times a day.

Crossfit for life!

bingo,

I've never felt that your comments were bashing anyone, just the opposite. I've been crossfitting for 9 months and I appreciate and learn from your posts. Please keep posting.

Mike M.,

I respectfully submit that you may have misinterpreted Bingo's intentions.

Comment #56 - Posted by: jsr at January 19, 2010 7:04 PM

The Demo movie is in the exercise/demo area under ; THE "GIRLS"/NAMED WODS ....way towards the end.

Comment #57 - Posted by: BD5503 at January 19, 2010 7:06 PM

#43 shelley
first off, remember these are jumping pull ups. The jump takes away half the range of motion (more or less) you would have to pull with dead hang pull ups. These are not "true" pull ups. However, if you cannot yet do one pull I would guess you could still not do 100 half range (jumping) pull ups, correct? I know, smart, I went to college. So to sub I would do a burpee, jump up and grab bar, and pull until you feel a drag and your motion slows, and go back down into another burpee.
If you have trouble with the burpees too, then stop after 15 minutes and record how many you did. Then try to beat that number the next time.

Comment #59 - Posted by: Heather at January 19, 2010 7:32 PM

Wow! This is a first for me! I've been crossfitting for 6 months now, and I've gone from being able to do 1 pullup to being able to do 15! I was crossfat, but now I'm on the way to being crossFIT!
Any suggestions on diet? Like a meal plan or something? I've tried to find something, but I just want like a menu meal plan to follow.
Much love to ALL the crossfit family around the globe!

Comment #60 - Posted by: ALX M/31/5'7/255 at January 19, 2010 7:43 PM

Nevermind the previous date. It wasn't an official WOD. We did it after watching the video of Greg Amundson destroying it. I was 2 years younger and 15 pounds lighter. We'll see how I compare tomorrow...

Thanks anyway!

Comment #61 - Posted by: Dan D. at January 19, 2010 7:45 PM

JSR # 54: Word.

Bingo - you are always supportive and bang-on with your comments and advice. I have been CFing, alone in a remote land, for the last 7 months and your input has been well valued.

Not sure what happened here but the tone detected by others is waaaay off the mark, IMHO...

Keep it coming brother,

Comment #62 - Posted by: CF-in Indonesia at January 19, 2010 7:46 PM

Wanted to try this out and get started. This a lot more (stregth) work than I've done in the last year. Frack my body hurts, but it's a good hurt. The time blows compared to what I see above, but 28 heart pounding, lung sucking, arm numbing minutes later I was done. Can't wait to see what Thursday brings.

Comment #63 - Posted by: coachin2au at January 19, 2010 7:50 PM

Thanks bingo for what you do! I know a couple years ago it was veterans like you and others that answered many questions honestly and with some humor. If anybody has been around for a while, they know that you know your stuff and are thinking of others' best interests. Don't even respond to those "bashing" you.

Can't wait to do this one...thinking of doing FGB first, though, since it'll be another 5 days out in the middle of the desert before I get to the gym again (tabata everything while I'm out there, I'm thinking).

Should be fun!

#44 love your attitude.
ive been doing crossfit for three or four months now. i love all the help i get with the FAQ. most of the time people have the same questions as me so its good to know im not alone. crossfit feels like a family to me, and underground movement if you must. maybe because i havent met anyone else personally whos as inthrawled in it as i am. just like a family there will always be misunderstandings and arguements, but we should maybe try to remember what this is all about. bettering ourselves,both physically, mentally, and morally. this FREE knowledge given to us is amazing and life changing. if only we could see that daily, we might do our best at always reaching out and picking up our little bros and sis's who need a lil more encouragement. we are a crossfit family after all. thank you to all those out there doin this already. ill try to do it more to. cant wait to get my but kicked again.

Comment #79 - Posted by: Jah at January 19, 2010 11:13 PM

Wow, this'll be fun, in a twisted kinda way..

As an aside, I did the FGB workout yesterday, when I had access to the rower. It's my NYE resolution to do as many WOD's as possible as RX, and to post ALL results, not just the ones that make me feel good. So, here goes;

FGB (As Rx'ed)
WB/SDHP/BJ/PP/Row(cal)

25/25/25/25/15 = 115 pts
20/20/20/15/12 = 87 pts
15/15/15/15/11 = 71 pts.

Total 115 + 87 + 71 = ....273 !!

Kinda stoked, first time as Rx, and working strictly on good form for all movements. I've gotta say, having done "CrossFit-lite" up til 1st Jan this year, it's a real mental game as much as a physical one, I'm finding. And when you conquer that mental "i can't do this" feeling, and knock out a workout with good form, as Rx'ed, it's a fantastic, empowering feeling. You feel invincible!!

Keep at it newbies, and give yourselves that extra push!

Til tomorrow,

For what ever reason, they decided to post my post, then erase it.
I'll try afain here under a pet name, an alias if you will!
You are stand up as they come, grade A class across the board, no pun intended.
I am sure that all this bashing does nothing to you or for you. You are far far to good a man and vital member of this community, and it has always been a plessure to have a seat with you at the cf table!
No, if they erase this one after its been published, I will certainly have some things to comment about due to some the hq hypocritcal stands and false representations of community. Ya, you know who I mean!However my dear friend bingo, not your beef, and so I say keep it up my friend! you are loved!

70 reps in 15 minutes (in the mud). Could've made it to 100 (would have taken another 10 minutes probably), but decided to heed bingo's advice. I'll get it next time.

Thanks Coach!

Second post for today, first post about this workout!

Stoked. Absolutely, over-the-moon, stoked.

Wow, I am a weakling. 28 degrees in the barn this morning. Never did a burpee before.

12 minutes, 50 burpees with the jump up at the end, no pullups. Then a ride on the bike to round out the half hour.

Hi All,
I have a question regarding the use of the Crossfit name. I am looking to open a very small gym in PA where everything needed to do Crossfit will be provided. rings, bumperplates, kettlebells, etc.
My question, how do I do this without infringement on the Crossfit Trademark? I don't have the intention of providing classes or affeliating, simply to provide a gym where crossfitters can come and have access to the equipment they need.
Thanks for your feedback

My 1RM back in October was around 200.

Thanks to all the staff at Montclair certs, especially Dennis and Mike (who both wore looks of concern so pronounced when my back went lazy that they scared the crap out of me) for the steady mantra of "Back! Heels!" I heard them in my mind's ear the whole time. These lifts felt great.

Coach, no need to explain yourself. It seems that you are uncomfortable with your success and feel it corrupts your "Free" open source image. It doesn't. Everyone on this site and around the world knows it. Anyone asking you, how could you take money from sponsors that you don't believe in is an idealist but not a realist. We live in a capitalist society (sort of). Money is coming to you because of the quality investment you and your business is to them

The answer is that you cannot make any use the CrossFit brand name in connection with your gym without infringing CrossFit's trademark unless you have a license agreement with CrossFit, Inc allowing you to use the brand name.

You can use the method & do the workouts without infringing, but you cannot use the brand name without being licensed. Licensing comes only through affiliation.

I hope this makes sense.

and that wasn't good. Always good to figure out what you need to get better at though.

14:00 flat, bar was 9', so I had to jump pretty high to get up there.

Definitely caught myself doing negatives on the PU's - not intentionally but had to remember to let go when my neck was over the bar.

I drank the Kool-aid a little over a year ago. I wanted to say that I respectfully disagree with comment 37, and while I may not represent everyone, my personal experience is that your posts have been nothing but helpful, insightful, and enjoyable. I recall my first month on here, reading your posts daily, and being very grateful for having some instructional, lighthearted encouragement from someone who seemed to know what they were talking about.

I was hoping my first-ever post would be more profound, but this is as fitting as anything else, I suppose (except that I won’t be posting my WOD time, as I won’t be able to get to it for another 5 hours or so).
Keep it up!

My pullup bar is well out of my reach, even jumping, I have to stand on a box to still barely reach it. Should I just do a burpee, step up and do a jumping pullup? Seems to be the only thing I can come up with. Any suggestions would be great, thanks.

Comment #163 - Posted by: Quintina at January 20, 2010 8:13 AM

Response to Dan MacDougald. I partially agree with you. My only concern is taking something 'crossfit workout' and claiming it to be my own. I don't intend to use crossfit as my business, but give credit to crossfit for the workouts used in my gym. Is that wrong? Or should I pretend crossfit doesn't exist and call them Mark's Workout Wharehouse? (that was a joke)

"Bingo for example, you seem like a "badass" or maybe you just like acting that way behind the security of a computer."

Mike M. (Jan 19 at 6:10 pm) - If you have been coming to CF for as long as you claim and you're taking a shot at Darrell, you are either a fraud or a fool.

FWIW, Bingo has been the poster-child for polite. patient instruction for newbies, including scaling info and encouragement. Gratis (when his time as an eye-surgeon is worth a significant amount).

If you want to cal out internet tough guys, you can google search me and dial me up any time you like. Happy to be your huckleberry.

I will say that Bingo does have his faults. Dude snores after a long day in the sun. Seriously. Apolloswabbie, too. But both wear very cute boxers.

Comment #166 - Posted by: Dale_Saran at January 20, 2010 8:32 AM

I'm feeling pretty proud today. i certainly can't do tons of pull ups in a row as in regular pullups, unless I use a band. I can do 3-6 chin ups on my own and 1 to 2 pullups on my own.

But with going back and forth between a burpee and jumping up to the bar and doing a pull up, I was able to do them without the band. I have one of those bars you put in the door way and since i'm 5'3, I still had to jump up to get to it.

I did 100 too, but had to stop the watch a few times due to 2 and 3 year old. Probably good anyways, as it allowed me to take a few quick breaks. I switched back and forth between pull ups and chin ups, and toward the end could only do chin ups.

Average time was about 18:00minutes.

I'm coming up on 4 1/2 years of crossfit and I must admit your posts are by far the most entertaining I've read. I think the way you present information to the newbies is very clear and concise. Additionally, you provide all the appropriate warnings and caveats in a very hilarious manner.

Anybody that would interpret your posts of those written by a badass or of someone heckling newbies is way of mark.

The time you put into your posts and the effort it takes is far beyond anything I've seen anyone in the crossfit community do for free.

You are one of the few true assets that posts on this site.

I'm a newbie so this was my 4th crossfit workout ever and first one not scaled at all

100 burpee pullups: 14:08...bar was a few inches out of my reach

my goal was 15 mins so i was really happy with this, even with the bloody hand and the stars i was seeing at the end...loved it

Interesting that #37 accuses bingo of bashing on people. I've never seen that. I've seen many times where he has urged patience with new guys. He offers free and sound advice including how not to offend those who will bash you. Maybe his humor is lost on some people. Maybe some people are looking to be offended. I admit I haven't read all the comments this year so I assume they are similar to last year and the year before.

Comment #189 - Posted by: RussA at January 20, 2010 9:34 AM

I would like to respectfully request some advice from any nutrition folks out there. I'm trying to tweak my diet to gain some more lean muscle. I went to a Level I cert before Thanksgiving at around 200-205 lbs. I started the "Zone Diet" and using the CF formula, determined I was a 17 blocker. I am now 185 lbs. Not sure of my BF%, probably 9-10%. I want to weigh about 200 but keep the same lean physique I have obtained eating in the "Zone." Do I just add more blocks until I reach my desired weight or try supplementing? My diet consists of the CF prescription...meats & vegetables, nuts & seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar, and the occassional "cheat" day:) Any advice would be appreciated as I'm not very educated in this field and seem to get lots of various opinions on the matter. Thanks for your time.

Your question is a fairly common one on the crossfit.com mainsite message boards - there is an entire category devoted to nutrition discussions and lots of extremely knowledgeable folks - I'd recommend posting your question there and also searching the forum for similar previous posts.

You may get a few answers here, but most folks use this area simply to log results - but I guarantee you'll be happy with the discussion/feedback you receive on the message board.

Good luck!

Bar just below extended fingertips. Highest I have in my basement. The squat and recovery portions are the most difficult part. The more I do these, and the looser my lower back gets, the easier they become.

Working split shifts. Gotta go back. later

Performed in a squat rack since the pull up bar wasn't tall enough. Broke a few seconds between sets of 10. Done at a brisk comfortable pace. Like the fact the the pull ups didn't me wear out because of the jumping factor.

For time:
100 Burpee pull-ups

Ideally, the pull-up bar is one foot above your reach.

Pullups C2B with 20lbs vest Burppe part chest to floor

Time 19:04

all burpees except one was jump from pushup to feet, one I steped up onefoot then the other.

Scott I thought I had you, I hit 25reps in 4min, but you were right, they got slow after 50. I was sweating bullets, I even had a fan on. Pullups were the easy part.

Bar is at 8ft which is only 4-6 inches above my reach. This was a :36 improvement over the 07/2007 time I did it. That was done at 178lbs as opposed to today's 195, so I'm pretty satisfied with the improvement.

Comment #209 - Posted by: Shane/31/6'/190 at January 20, 2010 10:50 AM

As rx'd, 16:24. Took it nice and slow - did not want any visits from Pukie or Uncle Rhabdo. This felt pretty good, considering the burpees.

I broke this into bite-size pieces. First 10, then 10 more, then moved down to mostly 5's. 5 burpee pull-ups took about 20-25 seconds, and then I would rest another 20-30s, depending on how I felt. Initially, I got to the top of the burpee, and then jumped up to the pullup bar. As I got into the WOD more, I found jumping from the bottom of the burpee right up to the pullup bar was much more fluid and less fatiguing, though it took slightly more agility/balance.

Only had 2 misses on the jump to pullup bar - one I salvaged, the other I fell right on my ass. Also only had 1 comment from globogym fools: "Be careful!" On the inside, I said, "I will - but not for the reasons you think!"

Jen is recovering from a stomach bug she got over the weekend, but said she felt good enough to try the WOD today. She did this on Buttercups today:

5 rounds: 5 squat thrusts, 5 assisted pull-ups w/ band. Time: 5:27.

Comment #215 - Posted by: Fit Mom in CT of CrossFit Persevere (F38/125/5'2") at January 20, 2010 11:02 AM

Seriously thought about scaling and cutting off at the 15 min mark, but decided to plow through to 100 each. Since PU bar is so high (I have to stand on a 26" jump box and can just barely reach it), I did in sets of 10 each. All pull ups were band assisted, BUT all were unbroken.
Wish I could say same for burpees.

Anyway took me 33:17, which included a 45 sec – minute call from work that I couldn't ignore.

Very slow I realize, but glad I pushed myself through.

Comment #181 - Posted by: Jim

First, in addition to diet, add heavy lifting to your routine in place of some metcons (search Madcow Bill Starr's 5x5 workout spreadsheet or click link below)

http://www.wackyhq.com/madcow5x5/geocities/5x5_Program/Linear_5x5.htm

In order to gain mass you'll need to EAT and limit or reduce the number of cardio/metcons per week. You could probably stand to up your block count to 18 or 19, this will cover your protein requirements and carbs needed to support exercise. Then try adding fat blocks to each meal. Try fatx2 for a week, then x3 the next week, x4, and finally x5. One day a week (usually your rest day) cut all the way back to your baseline 18 blocks to "reset/rest" your metabolism and digestion.

As you gain weight you will add more blocks accordingly. Upping too many blocks right away may result in eating too much protein and carbs than necessary.

You may find it helps to eat most of your carbs (up to half of your day's worth) post WOD( 6P,9C,0F) and then the rest of the day have protein, some carbs, lots of fat (6P,4C,20F each meal plus snacks) to total 18p,18C,90F for the day (on x5 week).

If you don't gain, up your blocks.

Also, some suggest that eating carbs before bed will hamper growth by blocking growth hormone (HGH) that is released when you enter deep sleep, so try to avoid carb loaded midnight snacking.

When I was trying to gain, I just ate a lot of meals with lots of protein and fat and some carbs. 1 scoop muscle milk + 1 scoop whey before bed and post WOD. Pretty simple, but not fun being stuffed all the time.

later,

Bar was 6 inches above my farthest reach.

Did 80 in 15 minutes.

Got better as time went on. It's best to try and groove it from the get go, but there was a learning curve.

This is definitely a test of dexterity as well as cardio.

4th day of Crossfit. Got to 40 in 08:18 with the bar about ~20" beyond my finger tips. I think I coughed a lung onto the floor of the gym. Really disappointed with my fitness... long way to go to get crossfit.

Bar just barely above reach, but dripping on me the whole time from our excessive rainfall.

Sorry to come to the fight so late, but I've loved seeing the troops rallying to Bingo's defense against the "fraud or fool" (good one Dale). I've gotta believe Mike M is a fraud; seriously, how could ANYONE misinterpret Bingo THAT much? LOVED jsr's respectful submission! Beautifully stated. It is wonderful to see the community (almost) universally recognizing the consistently helpful, humorous, selfless contributions of a sincere good-guy. Didn't Coach just call him a Saint a couple days ago? I don't know about you, but that kinda would have made my day.

Fantastic work Carole, Jette, Julie Platt and Fit Mom. Congrats on the DL PR jeff. Awesome job JULIA!

I had to lower myself from the pullups...I can't afford to actually LAND on my ankle right now. Other than that, as RX'd:

25:56 Kicked my butt. Had to wait every once in a while for bar availability, but totally worth it. I was excited to see more crossfitters in the gym today for the first time in forever.

Real pull ups for me! A little slow on them, but done as rx'd- Sweet! I am happy about that! I have been CF'ing for awhile but pull ups a weakness. I cannot kip, but did these as rx'd- yay! Did another 20 burpee pull ups after I got done ;) Then worked another weakness, BP.

Comment #300 - Posted by: in8girl at January 20, 2010 2:37 PM

So were we suppose to drop at the top of bar, or come down?

Either way, I came all the way down after each pull-up.

As rx'd 15:22
Did this with a slight tweak/pain in L wrist, which made the first bit kinda hard. Doubt it made much difference though b/c once the pain went away, the exercise still sucked, haha. Was fun though. I love these type of WOD's.

I couldn't do the workout as Rx'd because of my height. So there was no pull-up bar high enough or one that was accessible so I could do burpee pull-ups :(

I ended up doing 100 Burpees and then 100 Pull-ups.
There was also a disruption because I had to wait for the pull-up bar.

I slowed down a bit about halfway through and never really came back. I scaled to BrandX's porch as usual, but I feel I could do this as Rx'd or at least somewhere in between.

4th WoD ever:
50 burpee jumping pull ups - bar only about 6 inches above my head.

Time: 10:43

Happy to get 50 - I thought I wouldn't make it past 35 which was my original goal. Obviously the low bar made it about 10 times easier ;)

Comment #385 - Posted by: Jacques at January 20, 2010 5:50 PM

Did a buddy workout with an Army guy today. There was only one bar available (1ft above) so we split it up into rounds of 50.

My first round was 4:12 and my second round was 4:07 for a combined time of 8:19. Granted, I had 4:23 rest in between the two sets.

Did these with a partner we had 1 pullup bar so we did then 10 at a time. It took a little over 20 minutes.

These jumping pullups caused me to cut my hand, darn...

Would have had a way better time, but pukie was steady knocking at the door after about 50. I would post how many times I almost threw up, but I lost count. This is for sure a "don't eat for several hours before performing" workout.

On another note, I'd like to thank the "GloboGuy" for coming up and doing 10 BPU's and saying, "Ha! Those are easy!"

Approximately 20 minutes. I say that because my stopwatch apparently started and stopped and I didn't notice until about 20 reps in. I figure those took about 4:04 because I finished in 15:56 and that makes a nice even 20. More accuracy next time

I forgot to add that the bar at my gym is at a good point, a little over a foot above my reach, but it's a little too close to another piece of equipment, so I have to be careful when I throw my legs back. I did my 100 with perfect chest to floor and hard explosion up for the pullups.

Bar was close to, but probably not a full feet over reach. Also, there were two metal supporting planks for the machine below me, so I had to do place my hands on those for the pushup portion, meaning I got a little bit below chest level for each one.

Bar was higher than my reach, so it took a few reps before I got myself in good alignment. Also, I had to really focus to jump from my heels, instead of the balls of my feet. Regardless, a decent effort.

I think I did 75, but I may have miscounted and done 65. Highest bar available was just out of standing reach, so only a slight jump to grab. Overhand grip. Not much kipping until the end, and plenty of negative happening.

18:36, and I had to use rings for pullups, because just today my pullup bar broke.

100 burpee pullups. Pullup bar was too low. My finger tips can touch it even before full extension.

19:11 for 100, scaled due to pullup bar height.

Comment #666 - Posted by: kgw at February 16, 2010 5:34 PM

Late to the party with this one, was holding off until I'd joined a new gym, which has decent pull up bars at the right height. Ripped my right hand through gloves for the first time, so I feel like a legit member of the CF family now :)

As rx'd, 20:24.

6 days off was nice, but I was itching to get back to it today. Did this at the playground - burpees in the snowy mulch, pull-ups on the high monkey bar - about 9 feet up. The set-up of the monkey bar (hard to describe) and the wet, cold hands made this one more difficult. I was 4 minutes off my PR for this. Had a nice fall (flat on my back) on #82. Ouch.
