Looking at it thought it wasn't that bad for a chipper, realized it was for two rounds...wow.

Hitting it hard tomorrow.

RIP.

Comment #8 - Posted by: Norm at August 9, 2010 5:21 PM

Some wods when I read them they look, yeah yeah not so hard. Then when you dig in it turns into another butt kickin. Not this one, the wod jumps right off the computer screen and tells me, stand by brother this one is straight up hard as hell. Doing this rx is another story. I would love to see a handfull of our congressmen or women follow in the foot steps of these brave men for a couple days. Maybe, just maybe it would cast a different amount of support these guys need. Foreign aid B.S. Support our troops.

I had the pleasure of meeting Adam Brown last year. In addition to being a true hero, he was a wonderfully nice and very funny guy (he told me he was planning on having his injured eye replaced with a glass eyeball featuring and Arkansas Razorback...I'm still not sure if he was serious or not). He will be sorely missed by all. Thanks to the CrossFit team for honoring him and his family.

Comment #15 - Posted by: A. Bain at August 9, 2010 5:42 PM

I go to the University of Arkansas myself, i was wondering why the last 2 WOD were so easy... well now i know. This is going to crush... and by crush i mean i will be surprised if i make it. RIP fellow Razorback we will all be forever in your debt.

Comment #16 - Posted by: George Bieker at August 9, 2010 5:57 PM

Good dude, wish he was still here. Def. have to put out for this one and embrace the suck.
A. Bain, knowing him I'm sure he was serious about the glass eye.
Will post my time when I do it later.

I looked at this and thought OMG. But understanding that I am doing this for men like Adam that fight every day so that I can "Decide" to do or not to do a workout is a blessing. I can't wait to honor our troops tomorrow!! RIP and GOD BLESS AMERICA

RIP Adam and fair winds. Thank you for your service and ultimate sacrifice to keep us safe.

I am a day behind so I will tackle this on Wed. I will give it everything I got.

Comment #35 - Posted by: WJC at August 9, 2010 7:01 PM

Rest in peace Adam...no small number of people here in Hot Springs have great things to say about him. Like #3, I knew there had to be one for him at some point. Been trying to figure out the significance of "24." A friend and training partner here says it was his football number.

#29 - George...if you live in Fayetteville, it would only take you a few minutes to get to CF540 in Springdale.

Comment #36 - Posted by: Jay L. at August 9, 2010 7:05 PM

Thank you Adam!! You will be in my thoughts during this WOD! God Speed!

Comment #38 - Posted by: Dave at August 9, 2010 7:07 PM

Absolutely no doubt that Adam went down fighting hard and took out more than a few bad guys.

Rest your oars Chief. We have the watch.

May God's grace be upon your wife and the two little ones.

God Bless people like this man. There are so few that have the gift to do what this man did and be willing to do it. It's too bad we can't do more for the families of those who have sacrificed so much. God Speed Adam.

Comment #41 - Posted by: Kyle at August 9, 2010 7:32 PM

I think the 24 theme is in reference to his funeral date of 24 March 2010.

Comment #42 - Posted by: Jonathan at August 9, 2010 7:46 PM

Adam was the first person to tell me about Crossfit, words can't justify the "don't quit mentality" this guy had. He was a regular Cool Hand Luke. Cannot wait to honor you with this WOD. God Bless your family and thanks for your service.

Comment #43 - Posted by: DRiggin at August 9, 2010 7:47 PM

I grew up with Adam. Rest assured, he was ALWAYS the consumate Warrior. Even when we were kids. To those wondering, the 24 was his football jersey number in school. RIP Adam, Godspeed and we'll meet again Brother.

Comment #47 - Posted by: Greg R at August 9, 2010 8:17 PM

@ #29 & #36, you can go to the Springdale gym but they don't follow mainsite and probably won't do this hero wod (I could be wrong).....I'm a trainer at the bentonville crossfit and we will do this wod Thursday! If you would like to play along, you are more than welcome! I'm sure it won't be long until somebody opens a crossfit gym in Fayetteville...
RIP Adam Brown!!!

Comment #48 - Posted by: Lacie at August 9, 2010 8:30 PM

That is one smoker workout! With seriously sad and soulful overtones. Adam was one good egg and this Army Ranger was fortunate enough to of know him a bit. He will be missed. I dread opening up the WOD and seeing someone I know or knew on the board for the day. It will be nice when this is all over and all the WOD's are named after ladies again.

Comment #72 - Posted by: BillB at August 10, 2010 5:23 AM

I had the distinct pleasure of serving with this warrior (SEAL) in Afghanistan in 05. Not only was he tougher than nails, he maintained a reputation as a stellar performer and was one of the most genuine, nicest guys I had ever met. It will be fitting doing this workout today in his honor. Warriors like this are the reason America can sleep well at night! God rest his soul.

So my wife has always worked out. She would do things like zumba, the elliptical machine while watching Ellen, and maybe some curls so she could work on her guns.

I finally convinced her to do CrossFit. I went easy on her at first and scaled the workouts so she could complete them.

Anyways yesterday she got her first real chest to the floor pushup in her life. Then she did a few more. After just 6 weeks or so of xfit. She was pretty happy with herself.

She also got 105lb deadlift for five reps at a bodyweight of 118lbs. 6 weeks ago she didn't like to hold an Olympic bar cause it hurt her hands.

now I've got her on the kool aid with me. She wants to do a dip without a band and do a real pullup eventually.

Just had to say thanks CrossFit. It's awesome to see my wife pushing herself and not working out like a "girl".

Comment #120 - Posted by: Matthew at August 10, 2010 10:25 AM

Just a programming question (I'm off to hit this in 45 mins so it probably won't help me but I'm curious)...

Any idea what a 1RM DL would be for a typical as RX'ed CFer? I'm asking because my 1RM DL is 365lbs (I know...too low) so this is 48 reps at 80% my 1RM DL.

I know the "average CFer" (per the FAQ) is 175lbs and I know that's used for scaling some WODs, but this seems like the programming goal is to go HEAVY, so I'm curious what a targeted 1RM DL would be for a WOD that calls for 48 x 295lb DLs.

(I get that a "target" varies - hence differing completion times - but there must be some ballpark figure...?)

Comment #121 - Posted by: bdiggle at August 10, 2010 10:51 AM

I know Crossfit isn't for everybody... very few in fact, but c'mon. I've been away for about 8 or 9 months and it USED to be that you may not need specialized equip or maybe you would have to sub something else... now I can hardly perform any WOD without special euip or already being a superstud. STARTING OFF WITH 300# DEADS????????????? And it's only 24 reps, really?????

110 had a great question, and it's something I've been wondering about. On some of these WODs, I can do the specified weights, but I have to do broken sets. Alternatively, I could drop the weight and do unbroken sets. Is there any good reason to prefer one over the other? It almost seems like a 6 and one-half dozen situation. Any recommendations?

Below you'll find the column by Amy Schlesing for the Arkansas Democrat Gazette that appeared on March 25th. I emailed her and she forwarded the article to me so that I could repost it here.
------------

Fallen SEAL died a hero, mourners told


AMY SCHLESING ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT-GAZETTE

HOT SPRINGS — Chief Petty Officer Adam Lee Brown spent much of his 12-year Navy career fighting battles that will never be known in places never mentioned.

Brown, a special warfare operator, was in one of those battles on St. Patrick’s Day, and died defending fellow U.S. Navy SEALs against a heavily armed Taliban force somewhere in Afghanistan.

“He fell protecting his teammates,” said Chief Special Warfare Operator John Faas, the SEAL team leader that day. “Adam died a hero.”

SEALs are the U.S. Navy Special Operations Command’s highly trained and covert fighting force. Brown enlisted in the Navy in 1998 and became a SEAL in 2000 — after nearly two years of training.

Faas escorted Brown’s body home to Hot Springs from Afghanistan. Brown, 36, was memorialized Wednesday at Hot Springs Baptist Church and buried in a quiet cemetery in the hills west of town.

He is survived by his wife, Kelley; his son, Nathan; daughter Savannah, all of Virginia, where he was stationed; his parents, Larry and Janice Brown; his sister, Manda; and brother, Shawn.

Since the beginning of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, 82 Arkansans have died in the war zones, including 65 who died as a result of enemy fire.

Brown was the third Arkansan to die in battle in Afghanistan this month.

U.S. Army Sgt. Jonathan Richardson, 24, of Bald Knob was buried Tuesday at the Arkansas State Veterans Cemetery in North Little Rock. He served with the 3rd Brigade, 101st Airborne Division.

Sgt. Vincent L.C. Owens, 21, of Fort Smith, died March 1. He was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) at Fort Campbell, Ky.

On Wednesday, fellow sailors and SEALs traveled to Hot Springs to honor Brown and support his family at his funeral.

“Adam, we miss you, brother,” Faas said. “We miss your smile and your crazy eye. ... In the days to come, we will miss your tirelessness and fearlessness under fire.”

Brown’s “full throttle” personality and dangerous job resulted in several injuries over the years — all of which he overcame — from the loss of an eye to reconstructed ankles and knees and near-amputation of all fingers on one hand.

“Adam was the hardest man that I have ever met,” he said. “And in true SEAL fashion, he would not quit. He would not give up.”

Only a few know of the work Brown did. The rows of ribbons on the uniform he was buried in tell part of the story — one filled with combat and courage. Medals for valor are only awarded for heroic actions under fire.

Over the past decade he was awarded the Bronze Star with Valor; the Joint Service Commendation Medal with Valor; the Purple Heart; the Defense Meritorious Service Medal; the Joint Service Achievement Medal; five Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals; two Iraq Campaign medals; three Afghanistan Campaign medals; two Global War on Terrorism Medals; and two combat action badges.

Heath Vance, one of Brown’s childhood friends, told the crowd that Brown’s courage was only one side of a complex man who balanced his life with faith.

“Most importantly, his love and commitment to his family should serve as an example to all men,” he said, fighting tears that wouldn’t stop. “Adam poured his soul into getting the most out of life.”

Brown was known for his kindness and compassion as much as he was for his toughness and fearlessness.

“He will always be my best friend,” said Lt. Cmdr. Jeff Buschmann, who lives with the Browns in Virginia and also grew up with Brown in Hot Springs. “Adam was the toughest man I ever met. ... He was the most selfless person I ever met.”

Buschmann said he hopes people remember Brown “more for the compassionate person he was than for the crazy person he was or the hard person he was.”

A slideshow played on bigscreen televisions, showing Brown sleeping with his infant daughter on his chest. As the pictures of the family rolled by, his daughter started to wail. The SEALs and sailors filling several rows in the chapel began to break down, one by one.

“Daddy!” Brown’s son, Nathan cried as the pictures continued. “Make it stop. Make it stop ...”

Faas looked out at Brown’s parents, sitting before the flagdraped coffin, and spoke of Brown’s deep and unwavering Christian faith.

“He is an example to all of us,” he said of Brown’s unit, Gold Team, 2nd Special Warfare Group.

Then he looked at Brown’s widow.

“Kelley, Adam was our brother. You are our sister,” he said. “We will support your every need, great or small.”

And then he promised Brown’s young children he would tell them the stories of their father when the time is right. To tell them what Brown accomplished, who he was and what he meant to them.

Then he looked out at his fellow SEALs in the crowd.

“Tomorrow we avenge him,” he said, adding that they would dispatch the enemy to “hell’s doorstep.”

Hey guys! I'm doing a report in school about surveys and such. I wanted to make one for CrossFit. It asks questions about your experiences with CrossFit. It is completely anonymous and will help me out greatly! It is only 11 questions and take 2 mins (seriously).

Here is the link- http://surveypirate.com/Survey.aspx?surveyid=20727&sp.mac=oI1CpxZuuJpjK2pP-6%2fqTg%3d%3d


Thanks so much!

WOW. Doing Crossfit since fall of '06 and this one goes near the top for all-time crush factor.

Wow--crushed.

225# on the DL, and had to sub 20#DB thrusters for the wall balls--everything else Rx'd. The full squat cleans absolutely destroyed me--mentally and physically. Just chopped them out in broken sets of 6 at a time (with waaaay to much rest in between). Fired off all box jumps, thrusters, and bench in rapid succession--but damn those cleans.

Ashamed--54 minutes.

After 46:51, I had completed 1 full round plus 24 deads, 24 BJ, 24 WB and 2 bench press. Had to go to work.

First WOD to beat me in years. Adam Brown was more than I could handle in the allotted time. Would have taken me another 10-12 minutes to finish, easily.

Had to do some bar changes, forgot my chalk for my hands, scaled the BP to 175 (Bodyweight)after the first 10 or so, just so I wasn't doing them in sets of 2. All else as Rx'd.

Great WOD. There were a lot of folks doing this here at the Naval War College today. (Even me and another Army guy) You will be remembered Chief. Rest in peace...we've got it from here.

39M/5'10"/170#

W/U: bench press, 3x5 at 70-120-170#; deadlift, 3x5 at 135-205-255#; power clean, 1x5 at 135#.

As Rx: 58:05.

C/D: skipped.

Controlled drop on deadlift and power clean (no bumpers); full hip extension at top of box jump; wall ball squat to an 11-inch box (below parallel); bar to chest then to lock-out on bench press. Very hot and humid.

I am not exaggerating when I say the bench pressing took up at least half the time. It's just not an exercise I do too often. Most of it was one rep and rest, one rep and rest... Everything else in this WOD was done at a good pace, though the second round of cleans was a little slower than it could have been.

Done in honor of Chief Brown. My thoughts are with your family. RIP.

As Rx'd on all weights except did 18 jumps on a 30 inch box instead of 24 on a 24. Bench is what got me the most, and I might not be able to walk in the morning. weight touched the ground between each clean, did not do a squat though, normally squat cleans are specified as such. kudos to those who did a full squat clean, that would have easily added another 8 minutes at least onto my time. RIP to my brother in arms.

the only thing that I scaled down was the Bench press, I could have done this as RX'd but I was scared to hurt my shoulder with the Bench press, so that's why I scaled down the Bench press, nice hard WOD, the squat cleans ate most of my time, If I would have done Power cleans, I would have gone for under 40 minutes maybe under 30 who knows, MIKKO is a Cyborg, I can tell you that much. Nice WOD, RIP.

As a military member it kills me to see another hero wod being made. But I appreciate the way Crossfit memorialized them in a wod where their legacy can be carried on and their family can see that their service is appreciated. RIP Chief Brown.

2nd round, I had to drop the deadlift to 225# for the last 18.

Comment #267 - Posted by: Linwood Wright at August 11, 2010 11:03 AM

Thanks to Chief Brown's family for their sacrifice, there are no adequate words to write... This was a very hard workout, as it should be in memoriam for a SEAL.

My form on cleans is poor, so I scaled that down to 115 for both rounds... I think I was getting a more consistent & correct form by the end though, and will go heavier next time we do cleans.

The 295 lb deadlifts were very difficult on the first round, so I went down to 205 lbs on the second round. Probably should have only dropped it to 250 but I wimped out.

Even with the reduced weight on the lifts, this took me 35 minutes.

Jesus marimba! That was #$#& in the dirt hard!

I think that is a PR for longest WOD for me. A couple weeks ago for my 48th B-day I did The Filthy Fifty (as is my tradition) in 36:37. And I've done Linda in sub 40 min. But this one was downright punishing for an old guy like me.

As Rx'd. ONE HOUR!

Had to really force myself through this. My knees creaked all the way through the wall-ball, and I didn't realize I scaled the bench presses to the top end. Did power cleans. Overall, felt good, if winded.

I'm glad I finished in under an hour: the bench press was too heavy and killed my time. I had to travel a bit to do the wall-ball, and I had to change the weight and move the bar between the BP and cleans.

M/41/180

Quite possibly the hardest wod I've tried in five years.

Scaled the deadlifts down to 275 and the benchpress down to 185. Even with these scales, I had to use 165 pounds for the final 7 reps on the bench press.

57 minutes.

My condolences to the Brown family.

More better faster

I got to say the pledge of allegiance for the first time in years at a Realtor board meeting the other day.

God Bless our troops and their families who only know the sacrifies made so that we can stand tall and be proud to be Amerians. Thank you and may you rest in peace.

I'm honored to be in your presence with today's WOD. Thank you Crossfit!

Semper fi!

Comment #341 - Posted by: ccfeldt at August 16, 2010 1:06 AM

Unintentionally added the box jumps and wb throws after the cleans both rounds... 57:42.
hindsight being 20/20 I felt it appropriate. Had to spot partner back and forth and load/unload barbells which ate up a little time. Great wod! Never Forget

CFWU followed by the WOD , scaled:

Two rounds for time of:

When I scale things, I try to keep the intent of the WOD. Heavier load coupled with anaerobic/metcon sort of flavor to this one.

We agree that this was one of the hardest WOD's ever, but our favorite. We did one round two days ago and ran out of time. We had to do both rounds, so we did it again today. The squat cleans sucked.
RIP ADAMBROWN

11:47. 135lb. deads, pushups for BP's,95lb hang cleans. 18lb wallballs and 20" box jumps. Scaled back to 16 reps of everything for two rounds.Have been doing the WOD's consistantly and really needed to scale back on this one just to at least do something but not over do it. Getting better though. Perhaps one day...the tip of the spear!

Comment #359 - Posted by: blaine vigilante at August 18, 2010 10:46 AM

32.47. 155# DL. 95# BP on sled, and power cleans. 24 situps and 12 dips between - legs in no condition for jumps and balls.

Adam must have been a serious ass-whooper to have that workout named after him. RIP Adam. I was crushed from yesterday's monster leg workout.

I am reading Fearless right now, and it's one of the best I've read in a long time. Touching, heart warming, honest and true. Sad, more than anything. That he has so much love for so many people and he was taken from us here on earth. Then, a friend showed me that they did a workout for him here. What a nice way to have him live on. Peace to all of us who can commemorate his life!
