"How you start is important, very important, but in the end it is how you finish that counts. It is easier to be a self-starter than a self-finisher. The victor in the race is not the one who dashes off swiftest but the one who leads at the finish. In the race for success, speed is less important than stamina. The sticker outlasts the sprinter in life's race. In America we breed many hares but not so many tortoises."
- B.C. Forbes

We don't have kettlebells at my gym should I just grab a 45 plate and swing it more? Any suggestions would be great, sorry I am only 2 days into figuring this all out.

Comment #7 - Posted by: Chris at May 13, 2010 5:24 PM

Hi Chris, try a 70-75# DB if your gym has one of those.

I totally agree, in lieu of this I will be doing my 3 minute legs workout(with guided assistance technology). I'm hoping for a PR.

800m is .5 of a mile, so u'll be running a total of 2.5 miles in this ass kicker

The video for the North Central Regional looked amazing....leaves me disappointed in the fact that I live in the Central East. There is no comparison between the two...gymnasium vs horse pasture?

Comment #21 - Posted by: Melissa at May 13, 2010 6:49 PM

I'm confused about some aspects of crossfit. If I can't do 30 pull ups in one set... do I just do as many as I can do and move on or take small breaks till i can pump out 30?

Comment #22 - Posted by: Sam at May 13, 2010 6:54 PM

what kind of evil b*st*rd thinks this stuff up? Well, I don't know how, but, somehow, I will, get through this, then, maybe......

Comment #23 - Posted by: Fortmetz at May 13, 2010 6:55 PM

Comment #7: Chris - if you are only two days into this (by that I mean doing Crossfit), then do not use a 70# dumbbell. You will need to scale this down, probably on all the parts of this WOD. I would lower the weight to ~35-45# and only do three sets instead of five.

Comment #24 - Posted by: Marty at May 13, 2010 6:56 PM

#23 Why should he only do three sets? OK scaling the DB down for the risk of injury but hey, this is suppose to be tough. Scaling the sets down will not increase the tempo unless you've good knowledge about pushing yourself and your body, which I doubt this man has.

So Chris #7: Scale the DB down to a weight that feels comfortable, but do all sets of five and do your best. Heartrate wont kill you!

Comment #25 - Posted by: Magnus at May 13, 2010 7:04 PM

eva was the first work out i did when i started crossfit a year ago. i thought she was the worst thing ever lol. lets go eva u are mine!

Comment #26 - Posted by: Yahny m/23/6'0/ 195 at May 13, 2010 7:09 PM

#21 Sam: take small breaks but knock out all the repetitions before moving on to the next movement.

only one word comes to mind...ballz

Day two of CF here we go!
Karen was a tease
Eva is a cold hard b*tch!

Comment #29 - Posted by: Joshua at May 13, 2010 7:33 PM

@21 Sam

Look up scalability in the crossfit journal. If something is requiring you to do 30 repetitions it is obviously intended for muscular endurance. If your max pull ups are around 5-6 and it will take you two hours to do the work out you are missing the point. Try doing your max pull ups and then do jumping pull ups for the rest of them, or increase the number of jumping pull ups to 60 or something. Whatever you do it is better than doing your chest and tri's and then jogging for 20 minutes.

Comment #30 - Posted by: patrick l bateman at May 13, 2010 7:59 PM

#7 Chris and #24 Magnus,

Scaling the rounds is also a valid way to scale the workout. That's just what CF Brand X did for the last Eva (they might adjust the scaling today, so check the website for the current scaling):
---------------------------------------
Puppies:
Four rounds for time of:
Run 400 meters
1 pood Kettlebell swing, 20 reps
20 Beginner or assisted Pull-ups

Buttercups:
Three rounds for time of:
Run 400 meters
15-24# Kettlebell swing, 15 reps
15 Beginner or assisted Pull-ups

Please do not sub Jumping pull ups.
---------------------------------------

The goal for the first month or so of CrossFitting, and definitely the first week, is to slowly adapt to the demands of the workouts without incurring injury, rhabdo, or burnout. Intensity should be gradually introduced, so making things "tough" from day one is not advisable.

Comment #31 - Posted by: Ben Moskowitz at May 13, 2010 8:01 PM

Where can you get those bands??

Comment #32 - Posted by: Anthony at May 13, 2010 8:14 PM

#21 SAM,

go to the start here menu in the main page, click on the start here, brand X scale workouts, once in there, click on the crossfit WOD, look for todays date and basically there are different scales for everyone, from butter cup, puppie scale, pack, porch and Big dogs, When i first started crossfiting almost 2 years ago and Eva came in the affiliate, it was scaled to something like the puppie scale, after so long your body develop better and you become in shape. I tell you this because before i could barely do 5 x 35 pound KB swings, now i can knock out about 50 in a row with the 53 LB KB, I couldn't even 1 x 95 pound thruster now i am doing 3 x 165 thrusters. it takes time but you will get there if you follow the program. I love Crossfit and i can't wait to do Eva. BRING IT COACH! my plan is to knock out 10 KB swings at at time and 15 pull ups, resting if i need to, if not keep going! as far as the run, less than 3:30 per run.

I hope that info helps.

Okay guys....seriously?!?!?!?!

much kudos to whoever edited the North Central Womens video posted today... perfect music, perfect emotional cutting... you were with those women the whole way.. and the smaller woman at the end in slow motion getting the snatch was awesome!! ... keep that editor employed, very appreciated out here...

Comment #39 - Posted by: jason selfe at May 13, 2010 10:03 PM

KB swings are not allowed in our weight room on Andersen AFB, Guam because they are "unsafe." The KB could slip out of your hands and damage one of the mirrors or a piece of their precious Nautilus equipment.

This is my first week in crossfit. Can anyone tell me what 2 pood are?

Comment #42 - Posted by: Jordan Anderson at May 13, 2010 10:36 PM

Jordan,

2 pood = 32 kg = about 70lb. This is a hell of a workout for someone's first week, I would scale it if I were you.

Maybe half of everything (weight, distance, and reps).

Comment #43 - Posted by: Josh at May 13, 2010 10:46 PM

I am SO stoked to do this WOD.....i was literally saying today how much i wanted to do this....how i would rather do it than Karen.....i hate karen
Unfortunatley most people don't agree with me, so when it was posted i gotta bunch of texts saying how much people hated me lol....still, i am super stoked!!!!

I'm new to Crossfit, started on the 9th w/ Jerry. I have quite a bit of strength/conditioning experience and decided to do Crossfit while I'm deployed to try something new (it's kicking my butt, and I like it). My question is:

Any time a workout involves pullups, does that imply kipping? Is that standard across the board for Crossfit? 150 is a lot, no matter how good you are at pullups.

Comment #53 - Posted by: Paul at May 14, 2010 4:31 AM

Hi, A question about WOD Annie (DUs and sit ups 50-40-30-20-10 reps for time.)
What is the "world record" or fastest time anyone knows for this WOD? I've seen Spealer do it on video in 4:2x or something. We had a guy do it today in 3:53! He just ripped through it with enormous pace without any breaks in anything. How does this time compare?

Comment #55 - Posted by: Bugsy at May 14, 2010 4:44 AM

Did muscle-ups with Kevlar vest instead of pullups. Finished every 800 meter run with 20 double unders, all unbroken.

Ungulator was saddened when the workout was over.

Ungulator relishes the pain.

51:16

Comment #57 - Posted by: cosmo at May 14, 2010 5:03 AM

#11 800 meters is .5miles not 2.5, the whole WOD would be 2.5. You can always type something like convert 800m to miles in Google and it will give you the number for future reference.

Day 2 of my CF life, Eva, what a cold hard b$tch she is
Legs like cement from Karen


Eva Scaled to Puppy Dawg with a few mods
Total time: 32:53

Round 1-6:42
400M run
35# Dumbell swings 30 reps
1st attempt at Kipping pullups 5, 5 (I’m sure I looked like a flailing fish doing them, I fatigue quickly so I’m sure my form was off)
Chair assisted Pullups 5, 5 (chair was about 4 feet out from under me, so my toe was barely touching when need the extra umph)

Round 2-8:32
400M run
35# Dumbell swings 15, 10
Chair assisted Pullups 5,5,5,5 (moved chair in closer to about 3 feet for more assistance)

Round 3-7:43
400M run
35# Dumbell swings 10, 10
Chair assisted Pullups 5,5,5,5 (moved chair in closer to about 2.5 feet for more assistance)

Round 4-9:54
400M run
35# Dumbell swings 10, 10
Chair assisted Pullups 5,5,5,5 (moved chair in right underneath me, had nothing left)

Feedback would be nice, I think I could have pushed harder, but my legs were cement from yesterday, Just need to adjust the mental toughness for next time!

could have done another round, but still a little sore from hauling the old plow up from the ravine while my tractor is out for repair. I believe my brother Adler could have done it by himself though, he is a beast of a man.

First Eva.

As Rx'd 57:44.

Runs killed me. After 2 knee surgeries, running is my weak link! 1st 800 solid, 2nd on had to intermix jog, run, walk. Extra time in 3rd round to tape right hand tears, and extra time in 4th to tape left hand tears. Never stopped clock.

I think I need to start pre-taping every time, or find some tight thin gloves for heavy PU days.

Oh well, goal next Eva is to keep more round of running unbroken. Even if slow, it would have to help my time!

That may have been the hardest 3 day cycle in a while. Of course, I think you put Eva in any 3 day cycle and I would say that. I have such a love hate relationship with this WOD. I hate seeing it but love it when I'm done. YAHOO, Rest Day!!

Rx'd 38:32, PR by over 4 minutes. OOOoooohhhh. That one hurts. Subbed 1000m rows in place of 800m runs, doing it that way is definitely a grip blaster.

No buy in or cash out - just warmed up the pullups and kb swings minimally, then kind of used the first round as the rest of the warmup. Did the kbs as 10-10-10, pullups as 8-7-6-5-4. On round 5 I broke the Kbs down to 6-6-6-6-6.

Haven't posted for quite awhile, but have been doing the workouts. I read some of the early posts and it makes me laugh that some people are pissed off/turned off with today's workout. Nobody is forcing you to do it are they? I mean I know that it would be nice to only have to do a 5 or 10 min workout all the time, right? This was a top ten tough workout for sure, but I think everyone needs to be extended and challenged physically as well as mentally and this workout did just that!

Comment #140 - Posted by: Jon A at May 14, 2010 2:14 PM

I'm very new to CF, but have been seeing a lot of posts about scaling. I've only started CF 3 weeks ago and what I did was scaled each week as such:
Week 1: 25% of Rx'd (this may seem too easy, but stick with it. Some things may seem cake, while others kick your butt, i.e. HSPU's)
Week 2: 50%
Week 3: 75%
Week 4: Hoping for 100%, but if not, 80%
Week 5: 90%
Week 6: Grin and bear it

Over-training is a very real thing, especially with these workouts. CF is no joke, people. So just be careful and listen to your body. You don't have to rush into this and hurt yourself.

And if you feel I'm full of crap, please say so. =)I don't mind criticism.

During this workout I was thinking of all the things I wanted to say, how Eva is such a B as to make the most abusive girlfriend seem like an angel, how Crossfit is forging super-freaks, how I had trouble running because it was difficult to hold my arms bent after the (27lb/jumping) KBs and pullups, etc...

What is boils down to is - I SO HATE CROSSFIT :D

Thank you for making us hurt.

1st Time with Eva, I think. I am satisfied with this time cuz I was shooting for 45 mins. Ive been CFing for about a year and now I feel I understand how to attack certain WODs, like today this was more of an endurance/stamina wod than an all out get-it WOD. My goal is to attack each WOD the right way, go all out or slow and steady.

DO WORK!!!

evil I mean "Eva" in 43:30 blood blister and regular blister to show. Last time 47:42. Subbed 70lbs dumbbell swings for kettlebells

Comment #182 - Posted by: jc at May 14, 2010 6:19 PM

39M/5'10"/170#

W/U: jump rope, 100 single-unders + 50 double-unders; 17 ROM exercises; 35# DBs complex, 2x5.

Sub'd 1 mile bike ride for 800m run: 51:52.

Bicycle rides on an outside road course (78F, 36% humidity, no coasting); American KBS; kipping pull-ups.

So I start Eva, completing the first 800m run (in record time I might add). As I'm coming back into the house, I slip on a step, turn my L-ankle, and fall to the ground. Instantly, major swelling on the outside ankle. It looks like another foot grew out to the side! Scraped-up my R-shin too.

Couldn't walk on it, so iced and elevating it for about 45 minutes. The swelling only went down a little so I figured I'd push thru it. I started over and sub'd a 1 mile bike ride for the 800m runs.

A lot of time was spent limping to each station and especially hopping on one foot up and down 1 flight of stairs to get to and from the bike.

Actually felt the swelling jiggle when I road over rough spots with the bike. I was able to shift some weight to the RLE during the bike ride and KBS, so it didn't exacerbate the ankle too much. Kept the ankle stable during the pull-ups.

Now my family, who think it looks broken, are urging me to go to the ER. Gonna ice, elevate, and compress it and see what it looks like tomorrow.

* Runs were slow

* KBS broken 10/10/10 for first two rounds, then 12/12/6 for third and fourth round, then 15/15 for the last round.

* Pull ups broken 10/10/10 for first four rounds, then 15/15 for last.

* I thought planning intentional breaks during the exercises would help in the long run, but I still felt completely gassed the entire WOD.

Looks like about 75 minutes (stopwatch took a dump sometime during the workout) to do as Rx'd. I thought I was in at least semi-good shape before starting Crossfit 2 weeks ago, but I'm finding out what a crock that was. I see the comments about scaling down the first few weeks. Is that what I should be doing or just push through and take a little longer than what the average posted times seem to be?

Comment #229 - Posted by: Caleb at May 15, 2010 6:32 AM

This was an awesome core workout, you can't tell me that the abdominals werent wrecked after this one....These movements (KB swings, pull-ups, etc) combined with the cardiovascular component offered by the cross-fit workouts is where I believe abdominal results can truly accelerate....perhaps the end of the sit-up era?

I started out with a great first round, but I think I might have burned myself out a bit. The running killed me, even though I am good at running. I need to do a better job at pacing myself on the run. PUs could have been better. rounds 3 & 4 were murder.
