Hooyah, Senior Chief.

Comment #7 - Posted by: RAB at May 16, 2010 5:07 PM

Before we start asking for subs:

Thrusters - 115# Barbell front squat to push press. pretty straightforward, use less weight for sub.

Rope Climb - Most of your time will be spent here. You will need to use your legs. 12 ascents is a ton. Sub is towel pullups, one for each foot of rope is standard, but in this case you'd probably need to lower that number instead of doing 180, 135, 90 pullups. Some will adjust by subtracting their height from the rope length (15'-6' = 9' or 9 pullups ascent).

Comment #8 - Posted by: brian p at May 16, 2010 5:09 PM

i luv thrusters =) rope climbing not so much =/

Comment #9 - Posted by: ld at May 16, 2010 5:16 PM

E-City Level 1 Cert-another quality product from CrossFit!! Chuck, Maggie, Bobbi Jo, Andy & Nicole were true professionals in every sense of the word. The training was spot on.

LEVEL 1 TEST TAKERS-LISTEN UP! The test is hard! Study the manual, repeat, study the manual. Did I remind you to study the manual? To paint a better picture, I got certified a year ago and I am sure the only reason I passed the test today was because I hosted the event and got to listen in the last two days. STUDY THE MANUAL!!!!!

Comment #10 - Posted by: Dan Leary at May 16, 2010 5:19 PM

When I sub for rope climbs I fabricate one of those cable rope thingers to hang from a pull up bar and do 1 pull up for every foot of rope but that's an Eff load of pull ups!!!

Comment #11 - Posted by: ChadMac at May 16, 2010 5:26 PM

So 15 feet from floor to ground or 15 feet from start to finish? Going to hurt bad

Comment #12 - Posted by: Jb at May 16, 2010 5:33 PM

Elizabeth City Level 1 Cert: Very well done, thanks to Chuck, Andy, Bobbi Jo, Maggie and Nicole. And well hosted by the Executive Officer,(thanks Dan).
Also thanks for the "TREATS" Coaches.
Oh and if HQ see's this Chuck needs a book of jokes for Christmas.

Comment #13 - Posted by: Mark Richardson at May 16, 2010 5:37 PM

Just wanted to say thanks as well to Chuck, Andy, Maggie, Bobbi and Nicole for the great training this weekend in Elizabeth City! You guys were awesome!

Comment #14 - Posted by: Jeremy at May 16, 2010 5:48 PM

Comment # 10 is right on. STUDY THE MANUAL!!!!!
I just took the test today and failed as most did in our class.I have been doing cross fit for 6 months and studied the manual. IT IS VERY HARD!!!!!! I will guarantee that any new comer to the program will fail.Sorry to post this but it is very discouraging and i feel that this will have some kind of impact.

Comment #15 - Posted by: sam leeper at May 16, 2010 5:52 PM

Thanks to the Coaches this weekend at the cert here in Elizabeth City- Chuck, Andy, Bobbi, Maggie, and special guest Nicole (hope it went well). Training and Treats were awesome (my legs still feel the suck)! Chuck, your jokes were horrible, but maybe somebody will send you some tickets to see some stand up or something.

The test was HARD! The test covered material in the Crossfit Manual that was not covered completely in the course exactly. That means, READ THE MATERIALS BEFORE YOUR CERT! LOL.... I know I was worried that I may not have passed!

Thanks to Dan and Margie for the food (and the awesome cookies that I ate too many of) and the hospitality. Hope to do it again soon!

Good job to all the newly cert'd people! We had a great weekend! Look me up on FB NEmery77@live.com

Comment #16 - Posted by: Neil Emery at May 16, 2010 5:54 PM

no rope at my phoo gym.....any suggestions?

Comment #17 - Posted by: bobby at May 16, 2010 6:03 PM

Level 1 cert in Lexington Ky Crossfit Maximus was awesome. Thanks to all the trainers for your knowledge and encouragement as well as diligence for making me squat properly. Also thanks for the encouragement as I got my first muscle up. It was a great 2 days, wish it was longer as I am a glutton for punishment.

Comment #18 - Posted by: Chris Thompson at May 16, 2010 6:04 PM

Sub 15 towel pullups for rope climbs. Try to alternate hands to simulate the movement.

Comment #19 - Posted by: Jonathan at May 16, 2010 6:05 PM

We just ran Tommy V here at CrossFit Diesel, in Columbia Maryland, this past Friday. It is a fantastic WOD that everyone should get a chance to do Rx'd.

Kristoffer Smith, from yesterday - Your CrossFit Balcony in Columbia, MD looks great! As the owner of the Columbia MD affiliate, I'd like to invite you out to a WOD anytime this month, for free.

I know there are a lot of great CrossFitters out here in Columbia. Don't be strangers - Come on in! It is an absolute blast to CrossFit in a group. You don't know what your missing until you've tried it!

Comment #20 - Posted by: Evan - CrossFit Diesel at May 16, 2010 6:06 PM

Just got back from Lexington. Went up for the test. The above comments are true. Study.

Comment #21 - Posted by: Mark P. at May 16, 2010 6:12 PM

Just passed my Level 1 written test. It was pretty tough. But I do feel validated as a Level 1 trainer, now that there is a standard of knowledge that I am required to retain upon completion of my Level 1. I got my cert last year, but it was nice to do this written exam and prove to myself that I knew what Crossfit wants me to know about the program.
Thanks everyone in E-city. Even for the hour I was there, met some really cool people Crossfitters are just some great people.

Comment #22 - Posted by: Bubbalito at May 16, 2010 6:13 PM

The 100 mile run video was inspiring. Looking forward to the next episodes.

Lexington Level 1 cert: AWESOME weekend! Pat, EC, ALL the HQ trainers did a great job. You guys were encouraging, knowledgable, and fun. Looking forward to the next cert, which will hopefully be the Nutrition cert. As for the test: be smart everyone. It's not hard. But it's not a gimme. Do your homework and listen intently during the weekend.

Comment #24 - Posted by: Pat McCarty at May 16, 2010 6:36 PM

Thanks for the great cert at elizabeth city. Thanks Dan for making the cert happen and thanks to all the coaches. Wish i could of got there a day earlier to really enjoy the cabin. For all those getting ready to go through the cert or test to get recertified, go through the manual like everyone else has previously said.

Comment #25 - Posted by: Jon at May 16, 2010 6:40 PM

Level 1 cert in Lexington was great! I've attended several conferences/courses by other organizations (NSCA, CSCCa, USAW), but this cert was by far the most organized and informative that I've ever been to. I was very impressed by the trainers (Pat & crew) knowledge and passion for Crossfit. It was a great weekend in Lexington!!!

Comment #26 - Posted by: John S. at May 16, 2010 6:53 PM

Lexington Level 1 cert: Enjoyed the cert. I passed the test, but as comment #10 above said. Study Study Study and then pay attention at your cert. The test was harder than I expected it to be. Thanks again everyone... PS: if any of you are in Huntington, WV stop and see us @ CrossFit Thunder..

Comment #27 - Posted by: John D at May 16, 2010 7:02 PM

CrossFit Maximus, Lexington, KY: The weekend absolutely ROCKED! Thanks to Pat and his team of superstars. I learned a ton and I know that I will be a better crossfitter for it. The Cert Staff did a fantastic job overall and I am walking away (barely walking) with a better squat, a better snatch, a mean medicine ball clean, and a budding muscle up. For those thinking about throwing down and attending a cert, do it. Prepare for the test, 'cause it ain't no joke, hydrate, and get ready to meet some of the greatest people on the planet. It was ALL GOOD.

Comment #28 - Posted by: Carl "Cujo" Jones at May 16, 2010 7:04 PM

I attended the crossfit ann arbor certification and loved it! But YES the test was difficult. I passed, but it was not easy. I also read the manual from front to back twice, studied it a 3rd time, and payed very close attention in class. Just a tip for everyone!!

Comment #29 - Posted by: jill at May 16, 2010 7:06 PM

Elizabeth City, L1: Thank you Chuck, Bobbi, Maggie, Nicole and Andy for the great instruction, professionalism, support and over-all enthusiasm for the Way of CROSSFIT!

PS: Helllllllllll Yeahhhhhhhhhhh!

Comment #30 - Posted by: Chase Carsey at May 16, 2010 7:12 PM

I attended the level 1 cert in Morristown, NJ and it was great. The test was tough but if you read the guide and pay attention during the lectures it is do-able. All of the coaches were awesome, and left a lasting impression. Keep it up guys, and good luck at regionals everyone!

Comment #31 - Posted by: Don Traxler at May 16, 2010 7:28 PM

DO NOT SUB 15 TOWEL PULL UPS PER ASSENT!!!

Seriously, you are asking for rhabdo if you do. 400 towel pull ups is WAY too much, even for more advanced people. Last time I subbed 5 per assent.

Comment #32 - Posted by: Eamon at May 16, 2010 7:56 PM

No rope available for me either...

Anyone care to join me for a 115 pound Fran???

The quality of these videos are always top notch. Whoever edits and produces them....thank you. I always enjoy watching.

Comment #35 - Posted by: Mike at May 16, 2010 8:51 PM

I agree with everyone... 15 pull ups per ascent is just way too much... I know it's not exact subs but I'm going with either CTB pull ups fran style so 21-15-9 or sticking with the amount rx'd of muscle ups...3,2,1.... GO

Comment #36 - Posted by: Jmiguel20 at May 16, 2010 9:19 PM

Whoa...this reminds me of the brutality at the NW Regional Quals earlier today:
For Time:
30 calories on the Concept 2 Rower
30 Thrusters with 95/65
3 Rope Climbs 20'/15'
30 Kettlebell Swings 1.5 pood/1 pood

20 calories on the Concept 2 Rower
20 Thrusters with 115/75
2 Rope Climbs 20'/15'
20 Kettlebell Swings 1.5 pood/1 pood

10 calories on the Concept 2 Rower
10 Thrusters with 135/95
1 Rope Climbs 20'/15'

New hero: Army Captain Joshua Mantz (Fox News 5/17/10) died in service...was flatlined for 15 minutes, clinically dead. Miraculously was revived with 30 pints of blood...then returned to service. Hero and source of inspiration to never give up hope or the will to fight.

What does 5 per ascent mean with these towel pull ups? And how r people doing 60 pull ups at a time? I do 35 regular pull ups in a row and I am spent! Should we go to failure or do a set rep

Special thanks to Dan & Margie Leary for making it happen!

Comment #57 - Posted by: Joe at May 17, 2010 6:12 AM

Morristown NJ Cert rocked! Thanks to Karianne for hosting and doing such an amazing job demonstrating (especially the kipping pull ups after the KTE!).

All the trainers were great. I learned so much not only from the lectures but also how to improve mine and others technique.

As every one said the test is not easy. STUDY, LISTEN closely and you'll do well.

i didn't have a rope or a towel, so i subbed 3:1 pull-ups using only one ring. it gave me an unstable platform, semi-akward hand positioning, and required me to jump to get started. i think it was a pretty good sub for the rope. weight as rx'd. 17:57

Comment #60 - Posted by: Mike at May 17, 2010 6:36 AM

I don't have a rope to climb so:

I loved the cert, even though I didnt pass the written test, what can I say, study and study more, read and read so you dont get confussed with the questions. Again thank you CrossFit. Dan thanks for hosting, and to everyone that was there. Good luck to each and everyone of you. I might see some of you guys again in Wilmington, NC to re take the test.. Chuck you could study up on some better Jokes!! thanks again...

I attended the Level 1 Certification this weekend in Scottsdale AZ this weekend. Assume job by Joe and the crew. I was amazed by how much more information was provided beyond the manual. I've been to too many classes over my life time where someone simply repeated the information that was handed out. This certainly was not the case with the Level 1 Certification, if anything there was way too much new information to absorb in just two days.

The breaking into small groups to work on the basic movements was great because it gave me the chance to see 6 all star coaches in action with big groups. The passion and energy they brought to a diverse group, which they will only see for two days, was infectious.

I left feeling humbled. I hope to become as good a trainer as these 6 individuals are one day. I know I have so much more to learn and practice. This experience just reconfirmed my desire to be part of the CrossFit community. It is simply the best!

Level 1 Cert in Scottsdale, AZ:

It was worth the drive down to AZ for this! I really enjoyed attending this cert, the trainers were really passionate and knowledgeable about CF and were more than willing to help out!

I think the break down into smaller groups was really beneficial. I want to especially thank Matt for his help on the snatch (which will actually help all my overhead lifts) and Jason for a butterfly demo (very excited to attempt this!).

Although it was hot (hotter than Vegas), I had a ton of fun and learned a lot! Congrats everyone who passed!

THANKS again!

Elizabeth City, NC Level 1 Certification. Your trainers are AWESOME!!! I learned so much in two days, nothing short of amazing. I too loved the breakout groups. The lecture part was full of great information. Do NOT underestimate the exam, it requires time with the manual and paying attention to the material in class. Thanks to the facility for hosting, great job!!

Didn't have a rope, and I don't think that the towel-pullup sub is fair (it would have been 405 towel pullups!), so I did weighted pullups as follows:

115 pound Thruster, 21 reps
25lbs weighted pull-up, 21 reps
115 pound Thruster, 15 reps
25lbs weighted pull-up, 15 reps
115 pound Thruster, 9 reps

Elizabeth City Level 1 Cert:

Rock on Cert Staff: Chuck, Andy, Bobi, Maggie and Nichole. Thanks for a fast paced professional course. I am proud to be part of this community and with what I saw last weekend, it just shows that dedication, determination and a drive like no other can produce great results.

To the host, Dan, thanks so much. It was a great place for a cert. Elizabeth City is nicely tucked away there. I have never worked with the Coast Guard, but as it goes with all of us military, professionalism and dedication are unsurpassed.

Chuck, the jokes need to get better. Hahaha. But honestly, it was more funny hearing you tell them than to actually hear the joke.

As far as the test goes, people need to study. I have been a CrossFitter for 5 years now and the test was not easy. However, I am so glad I passed. Study, listen and apply. That is my advice. It was a great cert!

Scaled thrusters down to 95 lbs. our gym has a marpo viper rope climb machine, so subbed with that on hardest setting. 15 feet per climb, so 180 feet, 135 feet, 90 feet.
finished with 4 x 500m on C2. not enough gas to do the 6 as rx on CFE.
forgot to start watch - probably 15-ish minutes for tommy v. then the rows were 1.45, 1.50, 1.55, 1.54

I only got 23 of the climbs done, I couldn't get up the rope for the last ones. I did rope pullups to finish.

My hands are wrecked. I slipped and slid down the rope real fast and burned my hands pretty good, got some blisters ect. finget tips are still numb.


Thanks to Brady getting me through this.

It didn't hurt my shoulder or bi on the rope. The thrusters werwe sore a little on the first few, but warmed up quickly.

Awesome performance Fit Mom.

Kevin and Carole your C/J's yesterday were great. A lite day will do you good. I guess if you could call Carole's pr on thrusters lite. Way to push it.

Been off recovering from surgery. Be a few more weeks until I can get back. I hate missing these great WOD's. But I love reading the successes of each and every one of the dedicated CF'ers on here. Keep up the good performances.

not as rx'd but I still feel like I killed it compared to what I did last time I did this which was over a year ago.

Last time I used 105 for the thruster, this time 115.

Last time I was over 16 minutes.

Don't have a rope so I did pull-ups 30 - 20 - 10 reps (I know it's not as hard)

Wow.... I have never done the rope climb before (crossfit for a couple months)... I tried to follow the video I remember seeing but was going all upper body so had to switch to pull ups and do a Fran... Thrusters improved dramatically though... Will have to re-watch the video on how to hook your feet on the rope. Crossfit, I love the punishment!

Was planning on doing as rx'd but after 1 rope climb decided that the pain on my shins wasn't worth it, never doing rope climbs without boots again lol.

scaled to:

For time:
115 pound Thruster, 21 reps
15ft rope climb 1 ascent
Jumping Rope Pullups, 55 reps
115 pound Thruster, 15 reps
Jumping Rope Pullups, 45 reps
115 pound Thruster, 9 reps
Jumping Rope Pullups, 30 reps

Time: 23:12

Minimal jump on way up, and proper lower under control for all rope pullups, I felt like a bit of a girl doing this at the bottom of the ropes.

Next time this comes up I will have to scale... Maybe 3-2-1 rop acents with the rest made up with rope pullups, though I think I could prob grind through if I was wearing boots and pants.

CF Maximus Level 1 Cert. - This cert class was incredible, better than any professional CE I've had to go to! :-)

There was something for everyone, and the CF cert team was incredible for keeping the material interesting and the class engaged for a full 2 days. Sherwood, you're a funny dude! You make me miss the northeast bro...Much respect to all of the instructors, you KNOW your stuff and teach it exceedingly well. In a word: Outstanding!

Thanks to the whole staff for the great weekend.

Done w/towel pull-ups (180-135-90): 51:56.

C/D: skipped.

Off PR by 13:15. Thrusters were done slowly/carefully due to the L-ankle injury. But it was really the towel pull-ups that caused the slower time. A real grind fest today. Esp. struggled with my grip strength.

Had to modify this bigtime.

I tried to do the "Pack" BrandX scale.

My results were as follows
started with the crossfit w/u
only did 10 reps of each and 3 pullup 3 dip

85lb thruster
15,12,9
towel pull-ups
60,30,15
(had to use one leg to assist myself up through most of these after the first 15)
time:1700

This was really tough for me. It looks like I should scale down to "babies"

Comment #206 - Posted by: Brian at May 18, 2010 6:49 AM

Attended Level 1 in Scottsdale this past weekend. I have been coached for many different sports. Joe and crew were among the best. Their eye for flaws in form and movement were exceptional. They all project a positive, enthusiastic, attunded attitude with clear directives. They each picked out the scaling that I needed to complete movements and workouts--almost intuitively. Missed the exam by a few points. This is more due to my unfamiliarity with the more technical aspects of CF. I do not now intend to coach, I still run my own psychology practice, it would not be hard to go back and pick up a hand full of details to pass next time. Thanks again crew. Thank goodness you are not all local. I would not know whose place to train at.

Comment #216 - Posted by: Eric-Clint, Texas at May 18, 2010 1:16 PM

Scaled to half-reps. 14:00, much worse than PR.

On rope climb substitutions:

I climbed hundreds of actual ropes in the Marine Corps while preparing for Officer Candidate School. Since starting Crossfit I've done about half the rope climb WODs with an actual rope and about half with some form of towel pullup substitution.

My times on these WODs, and my personal rope climbing experience, have led me to the conclusion that the most accurate substitution for a 15' rope climb is 10 jumping off-hand towel pullups. There is a lot of leg action and hip extension going on when you use your legs to climb an actual rope, and the jumping simulates that.

By off-hand, I mean you are pulling with one hand at the top of the towel (immediately below the bar) while the other hand grips the bottom of the towel (at about the top of your head). It doesn't make much difference how often you alternate the higher hand.

Did 115 thrusters for first set and first 3 of second set then went down to 95 for the sake of the shoulders

no rope so subbed push ups...100 75 50...some pretty bad push ups towards the end

Comment #237 - Posted by: Cleveland at May 18, 2010 7:08 PM

Was going to do a vested/115# Fran as a sub, but after doing a lot of extra arm work during our second daily sets (we're still trying to do 2 workouts per day) last week, decided to start this week off a little easier on ourselves with a basic Fran.

Me - 6:25 (PR)
JC (first Fran ever, done as Rx'd) - 14:36

Warm down with several sets of 10 x 80# curls and 2 mile bike ride in 8 minutes.

This is also my first day on At Large - Results, the creatine/HMB supplement. Will carefully monitor progress.

My buddy JC is just now learning kipping PUs, and he's still pushing his way through WODs. I dunno if I could ever do some of these WODs with deadhang pullups!

Have a great day everyone.

I actually did this WOD but changed the thrusters for 45 lb plate overhead walking lunge.. I did:
300' walking lunge with 45 plate overhead
12 rope ascents
200' walking lunge with 45 lb plate overhead
9 ascents
100' walking lunge with 45 lb plate overhead
6 ascents
(all ascents were to 15') I think that this variation was longer, but I just wanted to do heavy long walking lunges. They work very similar body parts but in a different manner. I like the workout a lot... this time I used tape on my hands and it made a HUGE difference. My hands were pretty ok after the WOD.
this time it was a lot easier than last time to do the WOD and I did a lot better. I went into it saying man just do 1 rope ascent every 45 secs or so and do each 50' in about a minute and keep that pace and you'll do o.k.... that let me really pace myself and not burn out and go extremely slow in the end... as well as not kill my hands like last time.. so I can keep training tonight.

* thrusters: 12/5/4 - 10/5 - 9

* rope ascents: took turns on the rope with josh, helped to pace myself and also made sure i didn't rest too long between climbs.

Comment #258 - Posted by: MarcusG 5'9" 170 at May 20, 2010 8:31 AM

trying to ease back into it (lame excuse) so I only did about 1/2 scaled:

8 x 20' rope climb
12 x 95# Thruster
2 x 20' rope climb
then 20 mile bike ride (3rd day in a row for this)

Thrusters were hard, but could have gone a little heavier. I did semi-jumping towel pull-ups (some leg assist, mostly unassisted). My focus has been less than amazing lately...would love to get back to killing it.
