I love MARSOC

Comment #4 - Posted by: udo at April 10, 2011 5:04 PM

Is the program just doing what they say each day? I know it is hard, but it seems like all these routines would take under 10 mins. What else do we do besides this?

Comment #5 - Posted by: matt at April 10, 2011 5:06 PM

Yeah, what kind of press????

Comment #6 - Posted by: Dave at April 10, 2011 5:06 PM

Planning to press my luck.

Comment #7 - Posted by: Angelo at April 10, 2011 5:10 PM

Thanks CF Central London and all trainers and peeps who rocked a great cert this weekend. Good times!

Comment #8 - Posted by: Cameron at April 10, 2011 5:10 PM

This is more than likely a strict shoulder press.

Comment #9 - Posted by: nicole at April 10, 2011 5:11 PM

For those asking about what kind of lift, it's probably an overhead press or barbell shoulder press with no leg drive.

Matt: Do CF for a week and push yourself on each WOD and you'll learn quickly that it's all you really need.

Comment #10 - Posted by: Sam at April 10, 2011 5:13 PM

Uh, it's a press. Standing, take a barbell out of the rack and press overhead with the barbell ending in line with about the center of your foot (directly overhead). This should all come from the shoulders and triceps, no knee bend to push press or jerk it. Keep everything else tight.

Choosing the proper weight may be tough. If you want to work speed/explosive power take about 60% of your press max and drive the barbell as fast as you can. So if my max press is 200lbs take 120 for all the sets.

If you want to work heavy doubles to focus more on maximal strength just keep adding weight and get em done.

Have fun.


Comment #11 - Posted by: Robert Fabsik at April 10, 2011 5:17 PM

I would agree with Sam and Nicole. I have been doing these WOD for about three months and have only seen bench press on here once or twice.

Comment #12 - Posted by: M.Wolley at April 10, 2011 5:21 PM

1) "press" needs to be clarified here. Is it one exercise or what?

2) Just started Crossfit today. Since I have light asthma, the 2.5 mile run today was harder than I thought.

3) Should we supplement these crossfit routines with anything?

Comment #13 - Posted by: Corey at April 10, 2011 5:24 PM

hey matt, besides the wod i would work on maybe a skill movement or a weak point (core strength for me)or comeback later and do the crossfit endurance wod. theres always something to work on.

Comment #14 - Posted by: mike t at April 10, 2011 5:25 PM

Good evening.

"Press" in Crossfit means "strict shoulder press". It is one of the three overhead lifts: press, push press, push jerk.

So Jason, why are you here? Seriously. This is a Crossfit website. What value does your post at #11 add? Coach has repeatedly stated that he will take whatever he finds to be superior and add it into the CF orthodoxy. I think the exact quote was "if you come out of North Dakota and blow everyone away we will sneak into your gym and steal your training secrets. I don't care if you are doing tiddly winks for time; if you win the Games we want to know what you are doing."

"...if mainsite is 'all you really need'..." Dude. How long have you been stirring the pot here? Do you read the other posts? Do you even care? Crossfit is GPP, and indeed the mainsite is "all you need" for almost everyone. In fact, for most people the mainsite is too much work. "Top CFers" are just like "top" anybodies...they need and do more than regular folks. Just like me the golfer and Tiger the golfer. Me the (sorta) strength guy and Jay Ashman (no fan of CF) the strength guy--he does more because he's better and he CAN do more.

I just did FGB with a 60 second rest between rounds. Seriously, why are you here? What value are you adding to Crossfit? What value are you adding to the Crossfit online community?

#11 Jason,

Why are you here?

Comment #16 - Posted by: Cloudraker at April 10, 2011 5:44 PM

Press means standing strict press. No knee bending at all.

Comment #17 - Posted by: Michael Loucas at April 10, 2011 5:44 PM

if it WAS a "push press" why wouldn't it say "push press"
it just says PRESS....

Comment #18 - Posted by: Tilly at April 10, 2011 5:49 PM

Strict shoulder press people! and yes #11 jason why are you here.

Comment #19 - Posted by: alex at April 10, 2011 5:51 PM

I was going to reply to Jason's comments but reading Cloudraker and Alex's reply made me rethink that... So once again: Jason, what the heck are you doing here?

Comment #20 - Posted by: PVB at April 10, 2011 5:54 PM

#11 Jason

http://www.crossfit.com/mt-archive2/000016.html

From literally the first week crossfit posted online workouts in 2003...1 minute rest intervals...

I find it interesting that in a comment insulting the 'superiority' of crossfit you feign to act just as superior and overconfident as the program you are insulting. You need to grow up a bit and train hard with whatever program it is you choose and allow others to do the same.

Comment #24 - Posted by: Sinal M/31/5'9"/215 at April 10, 2011 6:02 PM

Thanks for some of the constructive input, I'm thinking CF means "Strict Shoulder Press", although I find it a little odd they wouldn't be more specific-- oh well.

Also, Jason #11, you comments are unnecessary, unproductive and unhelpful. I can say with confidence that the majority of top crossfitters either own a CF box, or participate in regular CF specific wods, just not mainsite directed wods.

Furthermore, the proof is in the pudding-- as they say. It would strike me as particularly unusual that a FREE website would flourish into a remarkable community of incredibly fit individuals (which routinely tasks even the most elite athletes), if it was ineffective. Please keep your trolling to those individuals you think would actually benefit from your silly and attention-seeking remarks.


Comment #25 - Posted by: Chris at April 10, 2011 6:02 PM

So glad Jason is here to clear things up for us not to follow mainsite. What would we do without his observation. By the way I'm only going to rest 47 seconds.

Comment #26 - Posted by: Danny at April 10, 2011 6:05 PM

#11, Jason - View this link:

See February 9, 2010 WOD.

Enjoy yourself, man!

Comment #27 - Posted by: Joshua Sullins at April 10, 2011 6:11 PM

#12 again, how much weight should we press? I'll probably scale down the amount since I'm only 145#, so please give me the 175# weight

Comment #28 - Posted by: Corey at April 10, 2011 6:13 PM

a Press is a shoulder press with no leg assist. It is the original press, hence the single word name.

Along with a good CF warmup, which you should be doing with every WOD, you can add some skill work, but otherwise, the WOD is all you really need.

And other people use different programming because they belong to a Box that does its own programming or they are competent to develop their own programming from the CF model.. this is why CF is referred to as "open source". As long as you follow the basic foundations you are still "doing CF" even if you use your own programming.

Comment #29 - Posted by: John at April 10, 2011 6:17 PM

From the FAQ:

"Is the WOD enough? Should I do more?"
http://www.crossfit.com/cf-info/faq.html#General3

A similar question:
"What's this 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 all about? Is that really the whole WOD?"
http://www.crossfit.com/cf-info/faq.html#WOD10

More information from the Journal on how you should be attacking these WODs with low reps, go HEAVY:
http://journal.crossfit.com/2008/10/crossfit-programming-part-4.tpl The whole series is definitely worth a watch, even if you don't plan on getting certified or ever teaching, it will still help your training and understanding how to hit these work outs.

Shoulder Press (aka "Press")/Push Press/Push Jerk
http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/SPPPPJ155.wmv

So get out there, do some shoulder presses, and GO HEAVY!

Comment #30 - Posted by: Kerry at April 10, 2011 6:18 PM

ok so i get a strict shoulder press with out bending the knees. Now as far as loads do i start around what i think my max to be and then try to push past that if i can or start lower and work my way up or should i do some sort of pyramid

Comment #31 - Posted by: Roy at April 10, 2011 6:18 PM

Press is a shoulder press. Still lower body. Use the weight where you can successfully do 2 reps and increase each rep if possible, if not go back down to what you can do 2 with. Dictating rest time is because you should ONLY rest 60 seconds between sets.

Comment #32 - Posted by: Rebecca at April 10, 2011 6:20 PM

#30 thanks

Comment #33 - Posted by: Roy at April 10, 2011 6:21 PM

Thanks everyone for the information!

Comment #34 - Posted by: Corey at April 10, 2011 6:26 PM

@Corey:

Aim is to build up to a 2RM on the last set. Often if you have already got a 2RM try and hit your previous PB on the second last set then go for a new PB on the last set.

Everyone is different some people jump straight in heavy others like to build up slower. Say for example you might do the first set at 95 lb, then increase by 5 lb each set. You don't have to increase every set though.

Also, you shouldn't need to supplement the mainsite WOD's with anything else provided you incorporate a good warmup and a good post WOD Trigger point and mobility routine. CrossFit classes only last for an hour at most CrossFit gyms (including warmup, wod and mobility). A good rule of thumb is that the longer the WOD the shorter the warmup and vice versa, e.g today's workout you would be looking at ~ 20min warmup, with the WOD taking about 15-20mins, then 10min Trigger Point and Mobility afterwards.

An example of a warmup for this WOD may be:
3 rounds (not for time)
200m run
10 shoulder rolls/dislocates with a broomstick
5x pushups, pullups, situps, overhead squats

then,
2x 30sec Handstand hold against the wall.

then,
Work on Press form:
8 press with broomstick
8 press with empty barbell
8 press with a weight ~50% of your first set

gees, long post. Hope it helped

Comment #36 - Posted by: Adamk at April 10, 2011 6:30 PM

Guys and gals who may consider the short WOD today not enough-
I don't know about you, but we just did "Michael," "JT," "FGB," and today's run all in a span of about 6 days, plus some other workouts. I'm pretty run down. If you aren't - that's awesome and you are a great athlete! But for those of us who are, this is a good recovery/self paced lift day. You can always do a Strength lift like 3-3-3-3-3 cleans or Skill 4 minutes DUs like my wife's box does before the actual WOD if it isn't enough as well. Or you can move on to Crossfit Endurance or SEALfit which are longer workouts. Scalability! It's a beautiful thing.

Comment #37 - Posted by: Wighty 27/m/5'10''/170/Afghanistan at April 10, 2011 6:44 PM

This is what I love about Crossfit, the open source approach that requires a good level of common-sense. It's easy to spot those that lack it!
Mainsite puts up 1 workout FOR THE WORLD. Of course it is not going to be a 100% fit for every individual 100% of the time. That's where you scale, or take (steal) the ideas and implement them in your own programming. That's what the top level CF athletes do.

It's open source, it's here for free. Do it strict, take parts and leave others, or disregard it all together, it's entirely your choice. If you can't come away with anything, then so be it, no need to infringe on the people that can...

Comment #38 - Posted by: TimG at April 10, 2011 6:47 PM

For those still new to CF who like myself do WOD's at home, I recommend checking out some of the affiliates websites as well as the mainsite. The beauty of CF is it's a nation wide community that is almost always willing to pick up new ideas, training methods and members. If you have to scale a workout either up or down to meet your needs, then do so. Most of us are not games athlete although we wish and train to be. The reality is most of us are just trying to find a way to stay off the couch and enjoy life, so do your WOD's anyway safely that will allow you to enjoy your life

Comment #39 - Posted by: Robert Bourgault at April 10, 2011 6:54 PM

Has anyone else had problems viewing some of the videos posted on the main site with an iPod touch? No issues with the journal vids, just here. Thanks in advance!

Comment #40 - Posted by: Chris from Jersey at April 10, 2011 6:55 PM

So I've been doing CF for about a month now, and I can really say I'm hooked. I like how it varies and mixes in all kinds of dynamic exercises with explosive lifts and aerobic activity. Every day is a new challenge. I know my bro and I will mix in some "traditional" static lifts from time to time, but really, you don't have to if you don't want to.
I was a pole vaulter in college, and at the age of 32 I'm attempting to jump this summer in a series of meets and am hoping that CF helps get me into the shape I need to be so I don't get hurt or embarrass myself. Thanks in advance CF, I think I"m heading in the right direction!

The Law Enforcement Summit sounds awesome, how about a Fire Dept Summit?

Comment #44 - Posted by: Brian at April 10, 2011 7:35 PM

#29 you should set your own strategy for how you attack this WOD. Personally, I'm going to start below my 1 rep max but try to exceed it on the 3rd round from the end. That way if I hit a new PR, then I'll try to top that. And if not, then I know I didn't flame out too early from overdoing it. But all of this is very mental so pick what will work for you. Go get 'em!

The 60 second limit should inhibit your ability to rebuild ATP required for strength exercises.

Just finished L1 Cert this weekend at Crossfit Trident. Excited to tackle what I learned. Love this journey! Chuck, Chris, Jen, Sarah, Maggie and Andrea -- thank you for a fantastic weekend.

Comment #46 - Posted by: Jane at April 10, 2011 7:43 PM

CF Milwaukee and a lot of other places do a "Strength" portion where they focus on something like Press by doing 5-5-5 or 2-2-2-2-2-2 etc, before doing a main WOD. usually the strength section is a movement they aren't doing in the actual WOD.

Instead of asking "Is just the WOD enough" push yourself as hard as you can on the WOD. Look at the loads people post in comments and see where you stack up. Use that as your motivation.

Comment #47 - Posted by: Joe at April 10, 2011 7:55 PM

So why hasn't anyone actually answered Jason's questions that has commented about him? (save for two people that have posted helpful links). Snobs.

He is obviously somewhat interested since he's on here. So while we're at it, 1) Yes. CrossFit is definitely evolving. And a workout like this would be similar to a Dynamic Effort day for the Westside Barbell system. Numerous people at HQ describe CrossFit as being full of "fitness whores". They/we want whatever works best to develop our overall fitness. Which leads me to point 2) Main site workouts are probably the best at improving someone's GPP. However, a lot of people train to compete in the CrossFit Games. In that case, you almost have to specialize in your weakness (if that makes sense). People will add in strength workouts because they feel their strength needs to go up.

Michael Jordan was always superior to everyone he played against. But he still improved his game and added in something new every year.

I'm a day behind because I did 11.3 out of order so I'm doing yesterdays WOD and then right into Heavy Shoulder Press.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Comment #66 - Posted by: jkel at April 11, 2011 6:12 AM

Didn't want to stop at ten on this one, ended up doing 21 sets!

In order:
6 x 125#;
14 x 135#;
Last set at 140#.

Tried for a 22nd set at 145# (this might be my 2RM PR, or something around it) but no luck. Have a great day everyone!

As a note on whether or not to supplement WODs with more work, I do all the time, but have been on CrossFit.com for a little while now. Many experienced CF athletes do, but at the same time, I think Graham Holmberg said he followed the main site WODs for most of his training before switching to 2 WODs/day. Is that right?

SEALFit incorporates a lot more than one CF WOD, often in just one section of the overall workout (for instance, Work Capacity). For anyone who also uses militaryathlete.com, that's another such program, though you have to pay for it. There are many. Sometimes a CF WOD is still too much work anyway, and needs to be scaled! Just do what you're comfortable with. :)

Jason has some good points. he is not saying anything negative. Maybe CF is learning something from Charles Poliqin? Maybe not? OPT's programming is totally different. Crossfit is a great program but it will always change.

135-145-155-165-175-185(f - one rep)-175-175-165-155

I was pretty stoked to get the 185 - that's a one rep PR by 10 pounds. New goal is bodyweight: 205.

Followed this with the same progression on bench from 185; ended up at 255 (about 80% of 1RM). Then did a 5 front squat (185#), 10 strict pullup, 1 minute plank circuit 3 times to get nice and sweaty.

Always a good morning with CrossFit!

@63 Chris

Trigger Point Therapy - soft tissue self massage with foam rollers and balls etc

http://www.tptherapy.com.au/

Mobility - Kelly Starret's (a.k.a Kstar a CrossFit celebrity) stuff such as reinforcing good positioning with jump stretch bands, and just a way that makes stretching awesome (what's even better are the results)

http://www.mobilitywod.com/

Kelly also incorporates Trigger Point therapy so really you just need to do the MWOD (mobility wod posted on Kelly's blog every day) after the main-site WOD.

Comment #74 - Posted by: Calen at April 11, 2011 6:52 AM

Anyone know why the leaderboard is only showing those who worked out at affiliates?

Looks like all the "on your own" people, who have to send in videos...are not showing up on the leaderboard. Is this because they have to be validated first?? Strange thing is, they were showing up before...and looks like now it has been changed.

Any ideas?


As well...do people think its fair, that some competetors have to have videos...and some do not? Its possible that an affiliat judge counted a rep that shouldn't have counted...and without video evidence, the guy who does it on his own is under more scrutiny.

would really appreciate it if someone from Crossfit would comment on why my video submission has not been added to the leaderboard. The failure to respond to the message board and failure to respond to my email is just messing with my head...is my video good or what???

attended the Coaches Prep Course on April 9th-10th in Denver CO. The class was absolutely incredible. I believe every single Level 1 trainer should be required to attend this course. I learned more in the 16 hours of class time, then I have in actually training clients over the last year. It made me realize that I was not living up to the expectations of a Crossfit Trainer. The class made me realize my weakness as a person and the weakness of my gym, and how I can make both of them better. I walked away from the course with a great deal of confidence that i can make myself and my gym alot better.

As for as the coaches go, they did an exceptional job. We had some of the top CrossFit athletics as our coaches. These were the same people we see in the video's everyday on the main site. Once you get over the shock factor that you actually get to have these athletics as your coaches, you start to realize that their knowledge of crossfit far exceeds their athletic abilities'. Not to say their athletic ability isnt top notch im not saying that all. I would recommed everybody to take this class. I will sign up for the class again the second its available in Denver again, I believe its that important.

Attended Level 1 Cert @ CrossFit Oahu, I started CrossFit to prepare for AF basic training. Did awesome and came home with a fitness award. Been crossfitting ever since. I thought i knew a bunch already but left knowing even more about crossfit and myself. The trainers were AweSem and i recommend anyone serious about crossfit go. I look forward to the next step, Coaches prep course.

WU: head-neck-torso static stretch, 5 OHS 45# (nearing parallel), 20 lunges 25# OH, Samson stretch, 3r. of (3 PU, 5 dip, 10 BE)

95 (fx2), 65, 70, 75, 80, 85, 85, 80, 85, 90f (90pp) 90f (90pp).

Tried 90 again for set 11 (failed x 2), settled for push press (again).

-- Rob Orlando vid inspired me to keep hacking away despite failure. Didn't throw anything tho.

CD: Tabata squats (7), knee & ham PNF stretching.

Maybe PU and dips as warmup sapped shoulders, but I think that's an excuse -- my shoulders are simply weak from lack of challenge.

Good day of work, as another BG -- Biggest Goat -- is ID'd: Press joins C&J, HSPU, and OHS as weakest of my weak links. Plenty to work on. Bring it.

@128 where my weak Press x 2 WOD is outlined -- last night downloaded a bunch of Rippetoe and other Press vids from Exercise - Demo page and learned how to do the lift -- posture, hand position, head movement, chest & trap involvement. Practiced form today. Pressing should go much better now. Rippetoe article: good goal for men pressing is bodyweight. Now *that's* a goal...

WOD #72 - Done on 4/12. Pretty happy with result but don't think I started heavy enough. Wanted to go up 10 lbs per set but probably should have started heavier and done 5 lb increases as it got heavier. Eh, live and learn. First time doing this workout so last weight was a PR for two reps.

Greg A.'s warmup
WOD Loads - 95, 105, 115, 125, 135, 145, 155, 165, 175, 185 (PR).

Happy overall with today's results, wish I could have gotten 155 for more than one set but happy with my new 1 rep max PR(160)!

First time I've tried 2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2 in press.

So I just tried just to keep the same weight after a good warmup and do perfect presses all the way.

Recovering from right shoulder tweak, so focused on perfect form:

I forgot to log this one, but my best successful lift was 60 kgs, which successfully completed for five rounds. I failed on 65 a couple of times and I had warm up weights of 50 and 55.

Comment #269 - Posted by: Mik at April 18, 2011 6:22 AM

I'm new to CF, but I'm still embarrassed to post this. Good motivation to improve next time so I don't have to be embarrassed in front of all of you -

50, 60, 70, 80, 85, 90, 95, 100, 105, 110

Should have started at about 90...

55 push-ups (85 seconds)
50 sit-ups (90 seconds)
2.2 mile airborne shuffle (21 min.)
