225 C&J eh...

Comment #2 - Posted by: Rob at September 13, 2011 5:06 PM

Posted WOD: BEWARE of rope burns. Protect your skin. Seriously, do this.

Posted pic of pullup on rail road overhead signal: that looks dangerous. And awesome.

Now, on the video Fight Gone Bad fundraise beard vs. hair: we must SAVE THAT BEARD!!

(Kristen Clever's shaved hair might be her key to performance. That or hard work.)

Comment #3 - Posted by: RPov at September 13, 2011 5:09 PM

yeah, not too many DNFs from 'elites' on the HQ WODs, but this will cause problems. Great one though.

Comment #4 - Posted by: MHB at September 13, 2011 5:17 PM

I posess neither a rope, nor the ability to clean and jerk 225 lbs. I'll figure something out though.

Comment #5 - Posted by: Playoff Beard at September 13, 2011 5:18 PM

Holy hell. I don't have a rope either and subs are just gonna kill me. I also don't think I can C&J 225 either. Might have to scale the latter rounds of C&J.

Comment #6 - Posted by: Ben at September 13, 2011 5:28 PM

I can understand that the spirit of the competition is to raise money; but Melissa should be willing to commit to something equal to Eric's shaving his beard. Just coloring it is weak (like betting a four-year old something - they never want to pony up with anything valuable to them).
If Eric has to shave his beard that he has been growing for years, she should have to shave her head. At the very least, give her a high and tight.

QUESTION? What do you do when some scumbag gets his level one cert , then takes the word FIT and inserts the word of his choice in front of it , and sells it at a globo gym as the new latest thing ? Scumbag thief

Comment #8 - Posted by: Catnog at September 13, 2011 5:39 PM

I love this workout!

Our rope is a bit short (13ft) and I'll have to knock off a few pounds on the clean and jerks (RX womens' weights are 115-125-135-145-155) but it's a whole lotta fun!

Comment #9 - Posted by: JuliePlatt at September 13, 2011 5:49 PM

Comment #10 - Posted by: shawn at September 13, 2011 5:53 PM

I wish my landlord would transplant a tree worthy of hanging a 15' rope from so I could do some of these rope climb WODs. Gonna do "Abbate" instead (lots of C&J with running).

Comment #11 - Posted by: fathertyme M/33/6'/165 at September 13, 2011 6:09 PM

@ Catnog: you contact HQ. That is against the terms of agreement.

Comment #12 - Posted by: Eric at September 13, 2011 6:19 PM

Now I don't mean to sound like a troll but the way I'm reading it is that you have to 'Squat Clean' each time when I don't think I recall seeing many of the athletes doing so I assume this is more of a 'Clean and Jerk anyhow' type thing?

Comment #13 - Posted by: kKotz at September 13, 2011 6:28 PM

Comment #18 - Posted by: Christian at September 13, 2011 7:55 PM

@ kKotz it's going to be: ground to overhead, make it look like a clean and jerk

Comment #19 - Posted by: Andy at September 13, 2011 8:38 PM

Impressive picture, but when HQ keeps posting pictures of cross-fitters posing in dangerous positions to try to get the 'photo of the day,' they are essentially encouraging this type of behavior. I hope no one gets seriously hurt or killed trying for this worthless recognition.

You can donate to FGB on behalf of my beard with the link below. But also more importantly, you will be helping spec ops families, kids and disabled veterans who all deserve our praise and gratitude.

No matter what happens, I'm just glad I could be a part of FGB this year, this has been an awesome experience.

Comment #21 - Posted by: Eric Mckenna at September 13, 2011 8:48 PM

yeah I don't know if i can clean and jerk that much, I'm going to have to scale it down. Plus I don't have a rope to climb so i'll have to do rope or towel pull downs.

Comment #22 - Posted by: Chris P ` at September 13, 2011 9:05 PM

#8, THE PIT uses CrossPit for our workout that combine a CrossFit approach to combat training with martial arts specific movements. The main site has tons of history on this and how it came to be. As far as what you're referring to, I've also seen CrossFit gym owners teaching out of other gyms that are not certified gyms where they just use the term "XFit"...Where there's a will to buck the system, there's a way...


#20, I agree

Comment #23 - Posted by: Rick at September 13, 2011 9:09 PM

I'm pretty he's not risking his life, he's just confident in his abilities. Crossfit does not promote risking your life but living life to the fullest. I agree this may be dangerous but your perspective is flawed because you weren't there nor do you know the athletes capabilities. @ #20 &23

Comment #25 - Posted by: Richard at September 13, 2011 10:03 PM

I don't have a rope to do the ascent so a an alternative I was going to do towel pull ups, anyone know how many I should do per ascent many thanks.

Comment #26 - Posted by: Stuntman at September 13, 2011 10:40 PM

1 reps for each foot, so 15 for each ascent or atleast that's how I do it.

Rope climbs killed me!

Comment #29 - Posted by: Michel van Grinsven at September 14, 2011 12:08 AM

Hey Everyone,

I have a concern that needs a more experienced opinion if anyone is willing to help.

Background on me-
- Male - 5'7" - 170 lbs - around 9-10% body fat
- max strict pull up - 15-17

Here's the concern,

I've been doing crossfit on an off for about 3 years, but have been dedicated for at least the past 1.5 years (winter 10). I have recently learned the butterfly kipping pull up and have been implementing it into my crossfit workouts since this past June.

I have noticed that every workout that I use the butterfly kip pull up results in sore/pain in my biceps the next 1-2 days. The pain is in the bicep and tendon close to my elbow. Trying to diagnose the problem myself, I believe it could be due to eccentric contraction in the bicep on the downward motion of the kip. Or if not that, than maybe it could be a problem of shock-loading my elbows on the downward motion of the kip. It's the second possibility that worries me, and thus why I ask for a second opinion.

If you have experienced my problem, or know a possible diagnosis/solution, I would greatly appreciate any knowledge about the situation.

My email is gstreis@gmail.com

Just tryna achieve elite fitness,

- Gabe

Ronald mcdonald, regardless if we are there or not it's hard to say that this is not dangerous and possibly life threatening.

Not only that, unless this man is a railroad employee who happened to slip while replacing a light bulb, what he's doing is absolutely illegal.

Pretty disappointed in HQ today.

Chris@35,
What I did after taking four months off after doing Crossfit for 1 1/2 years straight was scaled everything the first few months until my body got use to moving again. You have to ease back into it and hopefully you are around of good group of instructors and people that understand that. Fake it till you make it. I started back March 28th and this morning was my 100th workout back and I squatted 200 lbs. for the strenght portion of our workout. Not bad for 58 years old with a bum heel.

f/41/180/5'11"

I think the 60 pullups the other day wrecked my grip as I had a much harder time holding onto the rope this time compared to early August.

I upped the weights 10 lbs from my last attempt so I'm now 10lbs below womens' RX

13 foot rope, C+J at 105-115-125-135-145

16:42

With a little more practice on the jerks, I should be ready for the full weights next time.

Comment #48 - Posted by: JuliePlatt at September 14, 2011 9:52 AM

Subbed pull ups for rope climbs (cos I'm weak and don't have a rope)

Pull ups: 30, 15, 6, 3

Why is this not referred to as "Rich's Revenge" or "Rich's Redemption" ?????

This was an epic moment of The Games that I won't forget!

Don't have a rope climb so I sub'd each ascent with 5 rope pullups per arm and can't do the RX'd weight but definitely a big improvement from last time!

Compare to 110730

50-40-30-20-10 rope PU's

105-125-135-135-135

21:30


Today:

50-40-30-20-10 Rope PU's

Comment #64 - Posted by: jtoops 27m/200 at September 14, 2011 1:35 PM

Was forced to scale this because of the bicep tear.
Unable to climb, well actually descend from climbing a rope.

So I did:
10 band assisted pull-ups
- 5 C&J (115)
8 pus
- 4 C&J 135
6 pus
- 3 C&J 155
4 pus
- 2 C&J 165
2 pus
- 1 C&J 175

Then went on in the C&J and got up to 195 C&J, which is the most I've C&J'ed since surgery. Close to what I could do before surgery. Slow progression and working closely on form, I think, has helped.

Comment #65 - Posted by: Steven Platek at September 14, 2011 1:38 PM

New PR by 4:22. Sub'd 15 towel pull-ups for each rope climb. Although it's my active rest cycle, I gave it all I had. Really wanted this one since last time I was unable to do the 225# C&J. Unfortunately, the 225 towel pull-ups got me again. Had nothing left for that final clean.

Took this up a notch from my last attempt and hit a new PR for my clean and jerk! (started with squat C&J, and as I got tired it started to move to power C&J)

115-125-135-145-155
Did towel pullups (a VERY weak point bc of grip, not strength) as a sub: 25-20-15-10-10

22:20! Increased weight and still was able to take off about two mins!

Comment #97 - Posted by: Saam at September 14, 2011 6:12 PM

I agree with #20. I'm pretty disappointed with this picture. Sure its impressive and there's no doubt it takes a lot of skill and strength, but awarding the people who send in these pictures only encourages others to risk injury or even their lives just so that they can be featured on the main-site. I love CrossFit, but I think its a little irresponsible for HQ to be promoting this type of thing. Is this what we should be using functional strength for?

where a community rope is at our lake some jerk tied an extra knot in it making it higher. Oh well.
last time did the first three round of the porch at 23:20 this time first 3 in around 19:00. Did all 5 rds of porch in 27:09. clean and jerks got heavy. last rd at 185 failed and had to put the wraps on for the last rep. Also used gloves for the rope climb and took time taking them off for the clean and jerk since they were pretty thick.

Got to the rack position on the last C&J and tried twice to finish the jerk. Dropped the bar at 18:18. Did not finish until 21:40.

I was faster to the last C&J by 3 minutes, but finished at about the same time due to the inability to finish the last rep. So frustrating...

I love this wod by the way!
