so its 45# dumbell for the trukish getups and then a 45# BARBELL for the sotts press or do you use the dumbell there too?

With a 45 pound BARBELL...

Comment #2 - Posted by: bingo at August 29, 2010 5:18 PM

@leon

I don't see anything about a DB for either.

Comment #3 - Posted by: Greg at August 29, 2010 5:20 PM

Its all with a barbell. No where in the description does it say dumbbell.

Comment #4 - Posted by: Brent at August 29, 2010 5:20 PM

wait so is five press behind the back 1 rep ore is one rep one rep

Comment #5 - Posted by: cameron Haner at August 29, 2010 5:21 PM

1 Repetition = 1 Repetition

Nice I have totally been practicing these a lot lately.

Comment #7 - Posted by: Jordan D. at August 29, 2010 5:25 PM

for TGUs - one w/ right arm and one w/ left arm equals one rep?

Comment #8 - Posted by: Chris C at August 29, 2010 5:27 PM

1 Repetition = 1 Repetition

Comment #9 - Posted by: Kyle Nog at August 29, 2010 5:29 PM

Sooo...a Turkish Get Up is?
I think it is that thing were you lay on the ground with one arm in the air and try to get without cracking yourself in the head. Is that right?

Comment #10 - Posted by: seth at August 29, 2010 5:37 PM

Could some please explain where 21-15-9 comes into the WOD....If I only have one lift being completed (turkish get ups) for time, it would appear that the WOD is calling for 45 reps for time, not 21-15-9? Unless you are adding in a rest period between rounds, the 21-15-9 reps makes no sense to me.

Little help please if I have misunderstood something.

Comment #11 - Posted by: Walker at August 29, 2010 5:49 PM

21 turkish getups
21 sotts press
15 tgu
15 sotts press
9 tgu
9 sotts press

This is going to be a though one, my right knee is being hurting me for a couple of days now right of the top Patella and where the femur begins, it doesn't hurt to squat but if I kneel on my right knee it hurts, it hurts when I stretch and put my heel to my butt or when I sit down in the snatch Position. I wonder if someone got the same problem. I am getting old.

Sounds like a breeze after hitting "Arnie" yesterday with a 2 pood Kettlebell 52:50 as rxd. Big Thx to the guys over at CrossFit SCV for holding their 1st Inaugural "Arnie". Great turnout, great people.

Comment #14 - Posted by: johnny d/34/m/148lbs at August 29, 2010 6:18 PM

Alternating arms every rep would not be that efficient. Im guessing we can do 11 one arm then 10 in the other...then 8-7, 5-4?

Comment #15 - Posted by: Nickster at August 29, 2010 6:20 PM

So are we saying its one for one with the tgu's? Like i stand up once on the right arm thats one and then stand up on the left thats two? Or is it 21 each arm etc.?

Comment #16 - Posted by: shawn at August 29, 2010 6:31 PM

just curious:

what was the point of the football?

Comment #17 - Posted by: rob at August 29, 2010 6:34 PM

How about up with one arm and down with the other?

Comment #18 - Posted by: CR m/29/5'7"/150 at August 29, 2010 6:35 PM

If I'm reading the description right, it should be 21 total TGU alternating arms, not 42 (21 each). Follow with 21 sotts presses with snatch grip(in video link). Repeat couplet at each 15 and 9 reps.

Since I could only get audio on link, are the sotts behind the neck or military style with the snatch grip?

Comment #19 - Posted by: Billy Engine 25 at August 29, 2010 6:41 PM

Re: the khalipa video, wouldn't standing up with the bar prove he got under it fast enough (fast enough that he's properly under the bar and has balance to stand up with it?)

Comment #20 - Posted by: Scott at August 29, 2010 7:11 PM

Behind the neck

Comment #21 - Posted by: Nick at August 29, 2010 7:11 PM

mikko is a such a noble creature! not to take anything away from the other top dogs, especially our current champ holmberg who is an absolute beast, but mikko's attitude just blows my mind.

Comment #22 - Posted by: jordan at August 29, 2010 7:25 PM

to be fair, the few people who know Sotts Press likely associate it with DBs or KBs and the WOD makes no mention of anything but a BB (crazy hard). (and i've never had ANY problem loading a video except for today's SOTTs demo).

Even more fair, as much as i appreciate the powers that be taking the time and energy to map out these wods, this is one of those that could REALLY use a bit more explanation. Spell it out for us please.

Yes, spoon feed me.

Thanks!

Comment #23 - Posted by: Graham Weedon at August 29, 2010 7:26 PM

The Coach's Prep Course exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend this course for anyone looking to impove the quality of their training. The CF HQ team was awesome!

Comment #24 - Posted by: Frank Faulk at August 29, 2010 7:35 PM

Nice video/workout with Jason, but is that a "homemade" prowler? Does not look like an elite fitness systems model.

Comment #25 - Posted by: Tony S at August 29, 2010 8:21 PM

Billy Engine 25 (#23) has it right.

Comment #26 - Posted by: Tony Budding at August 29, 2010 8:31 PM

Just wanted to say thanks one more time to the whole training staff from this weeks certification at CrossFit Ethos.

I'm still stoked about getting my first muscle-up.

Look forward to seeing you guys again later on.

Comment #27 - Posted by: ErikR at August 29, 2010 8:35 PM

Santi i had the same problem b4, dominant quads puling ligaments from the knee (tendinitis) and usually is aggravated when you jump, known as jumper's knee, so i stopped immediately any plyo exercises and star icing the knee after wod, stretch more specially legs and visit the osteo, that was my case and it sounds exactly like you are describing, can be fixed if you stop on time but i strongly suggest that you find professional help, don't let it become an overuse injury, hope you get better soon

Comment #28 - Posted by: fab at August 29, 2010 8:43 PM

If you are having trouble with the Sotts Press video (because they only posted a .mov version) you can find a .wmv version in the "miscellanous demos and videos" section of "CrossFit Exercises".

Mikko, you rock. Best of luck next year...

Comment #30 - Posted by: james.patrick [M/48/66"/135] at August 29, 2010 8:45 PM

Is the reason for the barbell TGU to work the forearms harder than with a dumbell?

Comment #31 - Posted by: Sting m/45/160/69" at August 29, 2010 9:36 PM

Just completed Level One Certification with the cert staff at CFX (sydney)a huge thank you to you all for expressing your talent and knowledge to myself and of course the whole group. I have taken so much from these 2 days and look forward to the journey ahead

All the best to the crew who also completed their certs.. see you game day

Comment #32 - Posted by: Lockie R at August 29, 2010 10:10 PM

I want thank the Certification staff at my level 1 cert this weekend at Crossfit Ethos. Learning from the best has only made more passionate about my own journey in CF.

And I'm proud to announce that I did my first ever (followed by 2 more!) unassisted kipping pull up this weekend , so thank you Jason Khalipa and Josh Everette giving me the techniques, help me get over my mental block, and getting my chin over the bar. Big ups!

Miranda, I didn't get to thank you in person before I left, so THANK YOU... I feel working with in our groups really resonated with me :)

I had an awesome time; and like I told Drew, I wish it didn't have to end.

Thanks to Pat, Steve, Chris, Brett, Tracy and Matt for this weekend's cert at CFX. That was an awesome experience.

Comment #35 - Posted by: lelak at August 30, 2010 12:19 AM

So could someone please give a definate answer, 21-15-9 each arm for TGUs??? The conversation kinda of died off..

Comment #36 - Posted by: Andrew "Aussie" Foster at August 30, 2010 12:35 AM

Thanks to all the guys and girls at the cert in Copenhagen this weekend. Great stuff was being taught there. Thanks for all the pointers and the possibility to get your thoughts and opinions on various questions.

I'm 99% sure it's 21 TOTAL...otherwise it would say 21 right arm, 21 left arm, etc.

TGU's for time; marginally lest daft than barbell good mornings for time. :|

Big thanks to the CrossFit certification staff for great coaching and insight, and to all the participants who made the Copenhagen seminar a valuable experience that inspired me to reach new levels of fitness! All the best

Comment #43 - Posted by: Sven Isaksson at August 30, 2010 4:02 AM

random question. is there a particular reason the WODs are set up 3 on 1 off? I'm currently doing a mon-fri on, two day off for weekend recovery. just curious as to why the WODS are always set up 3-1.

18:10 as rxd.
but seriously let's give a name to this wod. My suggestion:
" say bye, bye to your shoulders"

I was pretty afraid of doing this wod today. But than - I don't know why - I remembered the words of my BJJ coach - Augusto Frota - he said: " If you step onto that tatame you might loose. But if you don't try it, you've already lost!" thats what motivated me for todays wod and I think I won this round.

Comment #54 - Posted by: Apolloswabbie at August 30, 2010 6:50 AM

Huge Thanks goes out to Speall, EC and Chuck for the Coaches' Prep Course this weekend at Atlanta CrossFit. The Coaches' Prep Course gave me (a new trainer) a much better idea of what and I how I should be looking for and fixing movement faults. Best Part: Getting a picture into the minds of Speall, Chuck and EC on how they coach, manage a group, teach beginners and work with firebreathers. Loved the class and had a great group. Suggestion: (Realizing time management is tough at a class like this) It would have been really helpful if we could have gone through other movements that we had questions on, not just the 9 fundamental movements. Maybe you could add a small group session where the attendees could ask coach other movements, too? I think that would have been extremely helpful for me.
Overall, I'd recommend this class to anyone who's new to coaching and to people looking to stand out from other trainers in their city.

Well....that was a lot harder than I thought!

Did the presses with the bar, but am nursing a rotator strain, so they were not full ROM. Scaled the TGUs to a 16kg KB....not really the same thing, but best I could do for today. Didn't time the WOD, just wanted to get through it!

Good one!

Comment #63 - Posted by: Ben 31/5'5"/145 at August 30, 2010 8:04 AM

When a WOD calls for doing anything, one arm at a time, then you do the Rx'd reps for each arm.

21 TGU right arm
21 TGU left arm
21 Sotts press
etc...

I'm detecting a distinct dilution of core knowledge in here today! But that's not a crime. Keep reading, keep educating. And don't think TOO hard.

(After I said all that, if it turns out that I am incorrect regarding today's rep scheme then my mouth is going to smell like foot for a week!)

If you can work out five days in a row, then your intensity is probably not as high as it can be. Most crossfitters neeeeeeed every rest day they get!

Had a great time at the cert in Herndon this past weekend. For anyone looking to advance in CF this is a great place to start. Probably had the best staff possible for the event. Also, the facility at Crossfit Reston is top notch. All those who is live in NOVA are truly spoiled, lol.

Comment #69 - Posted by: sterling57 at August 30, 2010 8:38 AM

Thanks for a brilliant cert in Denmark this weekend. It was very professional, friendly, pedagogic, and motivating. Seven years at the University and I have never seen anything like it (in either of the aspect above). As soon as our box is up and running I will definitely attend more certifications courses (I want them all!).

The left side was the weak point, just couldn't keep the bar stable without rest between reps, especially on 2nd & 3rd rounds. Mainly my hand got weak.

quick question... I did the WOD counting 1 TGU as going up and all the way back down. Is this the right way to count it or do some people consider just standing up as 1 repetition?

Comment #91 - Posted by: The Anaconda at August 30, 2010 10:57 AM

With a 45 pound barbell, 21-15- and 9 reps for time of:
Turkish Get-ups, alternating arms
Sotts press

time 18:17

It was fun, Shoulders were wrecked.

First set of TGU's were awkward, I didn't even try one or the sotts press. I just warmed up and started with it. First set of presses were awkward, I broke at 11reps I think, for a 321go.

Second round better on buth, I really got the hang for the presses the second round. broke once.
last round was funny. non stop but it took my 3 trys to get off the floor on the 9th rep. Shoulder was done and I couldn't balance it.
presses were the best on last round. fast and unbroken.

Alot of my TGUs were controlled crashes coming down. But it was good.

I don't know how my time will stack up, but I know the weighted situps in the morning was a help today.

It said to switch every rep, not split it up. No it isn't speed effective, but it IS what is called for.

Comment 86, one turkish get up is all the way up all the way down. The reps starts on your back and ends on your back, THEN switch hands.

That was a lot harder than I thought it would be! The sotts presses are killer! I'm only strong enough to do a few of them, so I had to scale to standing shoulder presses with the bar behind my neck.

Comment #96 - Posted by: Jonblaze at August 30, 2010 11:14 AM

If ever there were a WOD in need of a demo video!!! Oh well, it's not like I'll be able to do this as rx'd anyway. Will probably do the TGU's with 35lb dumbell. The Scots Presses are a different matter altogether. I'll try my best but guessing I'll have to sub something like db push presses in the end. We shall see...

Gonna have to rock two-a-days for a week now to get caught up on the mainsite WODs. Had a great vacation but cruiseships are not the best place to get WODs done. Good news was they had a rower so did a lot of Tabata intervals on that. Other passengers in the fitness center kept looking up from their magazines to see who the crazy guy was grunting and almost puking. That's why I love CrossFit!

Huge shout out to Front Range Crossfit for putting on an excellent competition this past weekend, The Colorado Open. Great programming and tightly executed. A testament to proper CF programming, I was able to compete in some movements I have never done before (don't have tire or a C2 at the house), and not do half bad. Some real beasts showed up, that's for sure! Will def be back next year.

Shoulders too tight for Sotts press. Wasn't pretty, but did all turkish get-ups.

Warm-up: 15 min bike

CFWU x 3

WOD: 21-15-9

1. Turkish Get-up (21 x 45lb, 15 x 30lb, 9 x 30lb)
2. Sotts Press

Tough workout, had to scale get-ups after the first set.

I used a 25# kettlebell for the Turkish Get-ups and a broom handle for the Sotts presses. I did 45 Turkish get-ups total... 23 on my right side and 22 on my left.

16:13

Sotts presses are very awkward but they did loosen up my shoulders... for now, anyway. Tomorrow they'll be stiff and sore.

People are making this too complicated!!

21-15-9 - 45# BARBELL
Turkish Get-up, alternating arms
Sotts Press

Barbell right hand - turkish get-up (and back down!) Thats 1.
barbell right hand - turkish get-up and back down. Thats 2.
repeat until you reach 21.
Now 21 Sotts press - this is a 2-arm behind the neck press, in the squat position. Rack as if for a back squat, get into the down squat position and then press up, essentially to the catch position of the snatch. Do 21, not 105.

Now 15 reps of each following the same procedure.
Now 9 reps.

TGU rep began and ended w/barbell on the floor. Squat on Sots press prob could have been a little lower.

Very happy with my TGU form. I think this is the first time I did them using a barbell and anticipated balance issues. But they were all pretty smooth up and down. First time doing the Sots press. K-Star's mobility WOD really helped with this one. This was a lot of fun.

Never done either of these so I subbed the KB for TGU's. Shoulders are a huge weak point for me so I dropped the weight on Sots press too.

To increase my shoulder strength, what would you guys/girls recommend as something I can do say 3x per week. Or More if need be? thanks

This WOD was tough.
TGU- This is only the second time I have done these, so a bit shaky. My right arm has them down, but my left definitely was the factor that killed my time.
SP-This was not that bad. My OHS is still not the best, so my form on these was a little wack, especially towards the end.

The Level I Cert at CrossFit Ethos was phenomenal! I loved it and highly recommend it. It was my first time ever stepping into a box as we do the main site WODs on our own (AKA I was nervous as hell). We got a ton of encouragement and affirmations that we're doing things right and some constructive feedback as well. The coaches were informative and fun!

I'm pissed at my Fran performance & not being able to do a pull-up to save my life (stage fright perhaps?). I might kick her ass later this week for good measure.

Thanks for an amazing weekend!

Man, that was a long, soul searching set of 21 get-ups at the beginning. The new skill of the day was catching the bar with the other hand as I got back down each time, in the reverse order of movements. Just as my back hit the ground, I had to be sure the bar didn't come down like a knife blade and split me lengthwise.

The Sotts presses were better than I had feared. Nice lifts on that video, K-Star.

26:26. I used 25lb dumbells. For the TGU I did the requested rep with each arm. For instance 21 with left and 21 with right alternating (1 left then 1 right).

Not sure if this was correct but was a good work out for me.

I worked on the Sotts last night and realised that both exercises are incredibly technical, so I decided to do the WOD this morning at home, with equipment I had lying around.

For the TGU I used my 50lbs KB. After 4 of those I was having visions of my head being burst like a watermelon against the brick patio.

For the Sotts press I used a broom stick. With a history of shoulder issues, I wanted to err on the safe of caution with this movement. I was right.

Total time: 21:13 (50lbs KB, and Broom stick)

Comment #222 - Posted by: Robyn at August 31, 2010 7:55 AM

21 minutes but I think I cheated on the TGUs. Are you allowed to use the hand that is not holding the weight, putting it on the ground for stability and support? I'm guessing not, so my time might not be valid.

I'm happy that I was able to do this (even though I may have cheated) without shoulder pain. It still was a great workout. I've had shoulder surgery to repair recurring shoulder dislocation, and was worried about this one. This was a great one to do at the local gym, got lots of great looks.

I did this within my power rack to;
- prevent against a dull guillotine
- assist in the alternation

It had a side effect; if I was wavering on form and the bar hit the rack it caused an immediate change of direction... hard to recover from but a good workout as it caused me to REALLY concentrate on form.

Great cert in Calgary, Learned alot, i beleave more time should be spent on techn. classes. we were rushed sometimes but with the amazing staff we had i beleave we got what we needed but still would have liked more hands on. kettle bell should be introduced but not enough time. i just beleave the time scheduel should be bmanaged better. i had read everything about the white board lessons, if everyone would read the 115 pages of the prep book and we would spend less time on that and then more hands on work instead i beleave it would be more benificial. but thx to the staff u guys were a great inspiration for all of us.

Still taking it slow these days so lots of walking around between movements. Wasn't getting gassed at all, just localized muscular fatigue. First set of Sots Press very very slow and I was actually worried that I was risking an injury but I was much more efficient in the last 2 rounds and did the 15 unbroken. There is a little bounce at the bottom of that movement for me and I'm not sure if that is okay or not. I'm really weak there, regardless, so I was glad to give this WOD a whirl. Did it a day late at my firehall.

Some crazy fast times out there, nicely done.

Tough, but fun WOD. Both of these were hard at first, but seemed to get easier over time. The round of 21 itself took 10 minutes. TGUs were mostly unbroken but slow. Sots presses were tough - did them: 5-5-5-6 / 7-5-3 / 7-2. Was fighting really hard to stay back in the squat. Drenched by the end.

For some reason, the TGU's on my left arm were way easier and a whole lot more stable than my right. Wouldve thought it would be the other way round. Big Run coming tonight, Fun times, then......

Thought this was gonna be quite manageable. I was somewhat deluded.

No 45lb Barbell so subbed it for a 65lb daysack full of sand.

Used the handles for the TGUs and held at the sides for the presses.

I am also sweating a little.

Great arms workout - We are so used to using kettlebells, the barbell really can turn into a balancing act when you get tired. Great exercise for your wrist and shoulder stability, I think.

As for the Sotts Press? Wow - that is all I have to say about that. I have work to do.

Awesome Cert at CFX Sydney guys. It went so quickly though, I could have doen another 2 days. All of the trainers where top notch and totally intoxicating. Just to be in the presence of the Barber brothers was enough for me!! Thanks CF, I love you & am doing my best to introduce CF to the people that the Glassmans cant get to.

Love this workout. It's a long one, but it's very consuming and a good shake up from the normal fare. I still need to get back to top form, but this was a good step forward.

Comment #298 - Posted by: Bphantom at September 3, 2010 5:53 AM

didn't time...TGU: 35 lb KB, 30 lb DB (F), used 25 lb DB, all i have
Sotts: 10 lb DB's/15 lb DB's/45 lb bar last set...stayed easy so I kept going up each set...kept forgetting to post

Comment #299 - Posted by: RussA at September 3, 2010 8:52 AM

That was horrible, I am really bad at both these. Scaled to 27lb bar, tried to work form on the sotts. Need to work on shoulder flexibility.

23:44. 35lb dumbbell and 45lb barbell for sots presses. 21-15-9. Didn't push too hard today. trying to get a little active rest and not go all out on the WODS for a week. don't know how much faster this one would have gone anyway. Both movements are fairly new for me.

Scale-
used 35 dumbell and then pushed it overhead while in a deep squate, a good little firday workout. Was feeling it a little the next day, but a quick one, that I didn't kill myself on.
11.14 was the time. The drive and dinner with Joe C and families.

CFWU-3. From home. Still had rings up, so did ring PU & dips for 1 round.

Not real taxing from a cardio standpoint. Get Ups fatiguing for shoulders. Sots presses not as bad as I thought. Could feel it in lower back when I strung a bunch together. Think ROM was pretty good.

Comment #320 - Posted by: jrm at September 7, 2010 6:23 PM

My 22nd officially logged WOD (performed on Tuesday 20100908):

Very technical. Tgu's were all unbroken but very slow. Switching hands took a good amount of concentration and time.
