Comment #4 - Posted by: Brian at October 25, 2011 5:25 PM

OK so whats the WOD for normal people?

what are the subs for these excercises?

Comment #5 - Posted by: no really! at October 25, 2011 5:31 PM

That looks incredible.

Comment #6 - Posted by: John H at October 25, 2011 5:34 PM

Just a note-none of these exercises are in the exercises section :/

Comment #7 - Posted by: Justin Miller at October 25, 2011 5:37 PM

Constantly Varied.

Comment #8 - Posted by: Chris B. at October 25, 2011 5:38 PM

@8

Check out google's workout section. It is... voluminous.

Comment #9 - Posted by: Google Stuff at October 25, 2011 5:40 PM

am i the only one that get the intro music on the crossfit video movies but then no sound on the actual video? I know the last couple with coach b have no sound but then the next day its fixed and the sound is there.

Comment #10 - Posted by: jshep 26/6'1/200 at October 25, 2011 5:42 PM

Looking forward to this one in the A.M.!!!

Comment #11 - Posted by: Scott Chlebove at October 25, 2011 5:53 PM

Awesome! @8 watch the video

Comment #12 - Posted by: Thatcher M/44/5'10"/200 at October 25, 2011 6:01 PM

@8
Or just watch the WOD demo video on the main page. They do a great job walking you through what each movement should look like and they point out the common mistakes made when performing each movement.

Comment #13 - Posted by: Adam Enggren at October 25, 2011 6:02 PM

So, what if you don't have paralettes? different item or exercise please!

Nice!

Comment #16 - Posted by: Ryan at October 25, 2011 6:17 PM

What's the benefit of doing the down-ups? It looks a bit back-wrenching.

Comment #17 - Posted by: Charles at October 25, 2011 6:23 PM

Come on people, subs? Really? These movements are very easy in comparison to a lot of movements that we normally do...watch the demo people

Comment #18 - Posted by: Matthew Lawrence at October 25, 2011 6:29 PM

Does anyone have a recommendation for subs on the Wall Climbs and/or Pass Through? Please don't redirect me to google unless it's a site...Thanks.

Comment #19 - Posted by: Jenn S. at October 25, 2011 6:31 PM

Excellent quote.

I will sub in "Murph" as my WOD, thanks

Comment #20 - Posted by: Sgt. Neil Ferguson at October 25, 2011 6:42 PM

7 + 4 pass throughs

Comment #21 - Posted by: Jules at October 25, 2011 6:47 PM

Looks interesting but I don't have parallettes. Any good sub for that one exercise?

Comment #22 - Posted by: James at October 25, 2011 6:53 PM

sub for parallettes - use two boxes for boxjumps or chairs, etc

Comment #23 - Posted by: Heather Szabo at October 25, 2011 6:59 PM

Try it first, then comment.

Comment #24 - Posted by: ja at October 25, 2011 7:07 PM

I've never seen rip-away shorts before.

Comment #25 - Posted by: Michael at October 25, 2011 7:15 PM

@25 - why don't you try it and then talk? perhaps your understanding of crossfit is a bit narrow. just sayin.

Comment #26 - Posted by: Chris M at October 25, 2011 7:40 PM

Eight rounds, could have attempted the wall climbs, but died.

Comment #27 - Posted by: heuge at October 25, 2011 7:47 PM

push, push, push, and wait for it... push. interesting.

Comment #28 - Posted by: Chris Coker at October 25, 2011 7:50 PM

@29 no thanks, I'll program my own and include things I need work on that will actually come up again during a wod in my lifetime as opposed to updowns and grasshoppers. Again, just my opinion.

Comment #29 - Posted by: Josh at October 25, 2011 7:54 PM

The up-downs look like a great way to solidify bad burpee form. What happened to midline stability? I'm all for 2004 old-school gymnastics CF wods with skill work that wasn't for time. But adding intensity to the cricket/grasshopper and, well all of these, seems like a good way to lose all sense of gymnastic development.

Comment #30 - Posted by: josh at October 25, 2011 8:01 PM

looks like fun!

Comment #31 - Posted by: westsidesurf at October 25, 2011 8:04 PM

I like it. Will be programming this one at my box soon.

Comment #32 - Posted by: Adam at October 25, 2011 8:07 PM

No parallettes: stack of Bumpers plates with perfect push-up handles on top

Comment #33 - Posted by: Pete In Sun City at October 25, 2011 8:08 PM

Looks like fun. If people are complaining because they think this is going to be easy, then they don't know "wall climbs!"

Comment #34 - Posted by: Reilly Coyote at October 25, 2011 8:11 PM

WoW!! Great one!

Comment #35 - Posted by: Sebastien at October 25, 2011 8:14 PM

wtf...

Comment #36 - Posted by: g at October 25, 2011 8:44 PM

Great quote! WOD is tricky hard, high intensity constantly varied.

Comment #37 - Posted by: Crossfit 209 at October 25, 2011 8:46 PM

I find it funny when people complain about something that is offered to them for free.

About the WOD...I suck at all these movements, so this was fun to attempt. Definitely got a good workout out of it.

Comment #38 - Posted by: Jahsh at October 25, 2011 8:48 PM

Looking forward to this one! I remember my last battle with wall climbs. It was epic.

And a quick note for @32 "Josh"-- you're so right, you should only program your workouts based on your own expectations of what life might throw at you. You'll never have to move your body through unfamiliar movements....oh wait that's completely silly. You're welcome to your own opinions, but please don't presume to know what "most" of the community will think.

Comment #39 - Posted by: marco at October 25, 2011 8:49 PM

Rilly, I just lost respect from some of the crossfit community. All you people complaining about the wod need to quit crossfit or stop bitching and just do the the work out. For some of you not all of u but some you may have forgotten that cross fit is not just weight lifting and running every day its about getting out of your confert zone and learning new skills.

Comment #40 - Posted by: anthony erkson at October 25, 2011 8:55 PM

Interesting workout. Makes you think about your training. Cant just be doing the same thing all the time!

Comment #41 - Posted by: James at October 25, 2011 9:06 PM

I agree with #44, just do whats on offer, if you dont want to do it, carry on living your life without telling us what u think of the wod.

Comment #42 - Posted by: Dusty at October 25, 2011 9:10 PM

Weird...YES! Will I do it...YES! Will I supplement with a strength bias...YES! It's not manly, sexy, nor does it really have the bragging rights. ie. "What's your up-down time?" But, I can't say I've ever done this in a workout and everytime I doubt a posted WOD it usually kicks my ass!

Comment #43 - Posted by: Anne-Marie at October 25, 2011 9:17 PM

I like this WOD!!!

7 Rounds, 3 Wall climbs...

Definitely harder than it looks! Awesome variety, never done any of these exercises before but will be programming them into WODs at my BOX.

Keep it coming CrossFit.com

Comment #44 - Posted by: Mudz Te Heuheu at October 25, 2011 9:17 PM

This is gonna be good.
HQ rocks!
If it doesn't feel like a real workout (doubtful) I'll be doing a Tabata run or a bunch of skill work. That should finish me off.

Comment #45 - Posted by: ditto at October 25, 2011 9:21 PM

New movements... Nice!

Comment #46 - Posted by: Eric N at October 25, 2011 9:46 PM

We did "Hellari" today at Crossfit Draper and it lived up to the first four letters of its name. The WOD is named after the head trainer and 2011 Southwest Region 13th place finisher Hillari Eaton.

Pick your Medicine Ball. Rx-20/14
AMRAP 20 Minutes
15 Walking Lunges
10 Wall Ball Shots
5 Med Ball Cleans

Post your score if you do it.
Enjoy!

Comment #48 - Posted by: james d at October 25, 2011 10:42 PM

are the up-downs bad for your back? how about if you have lower back issues already? any subs for this exercise?

Comment #49 - Posted by: crissy at October 25, 2011 11:02 PM

#49 criss
im not sher if this bad for your back or not but a good sub whould be just to get in the down position and just don't put your hips to the ground.

Comment #50 - Posted by: anthony erkson at October 26, 2011 12:00 AM

fairly new to Crossfit, this is only my 2nd main-site WOD.

5 rounds + 10 up-downs. Had to scale the wall climbs. Good workout!

Harder than it looks but could have done more if not the "sweaty" floor..couldn't get a proper grip at wall climbs after 3d round. Got to try with gloves on next time

I knew that the wall climbs would be hard, but was surprised by the grasshoppers. Those looked way easier in the video.

If you don't like what CFHQ programs then stop doing crossfit and stop filling the comments section with negativety. It's amazing that even in working out people can find something to complain about. People are pathetic!

Enjoyed that - 6 rounds, 2 wall climbs. I've always found the lack of common sense a bit of a laugh
(er, no parallettes -use chairs)but all the complaining about the WODs is a funny one -If you don't like it, don't do it! Simple really.

Didn't someone once say:

"The CrossFit ideal is to train for any contingency. The obvious implication is that this is possible only if there is a tremendously varied, if not randomized, quality to the breadth of stimulus."

What could that guy know...I think I'll skip today's WOD and do Fran or Cindy again for the 100th time.

I'm always looking for good wods that I can do when away from our house (where we work out). This could pretty much be done anywhere. Add it to the "holiday wod" list!

5th round got to 5x pass-throughs

toasted my shoulders and wrists are a little tender too -- great WOD!

Comment #89 - Posted by: TebowFan at October 26, 2011 8:17 AM

8 rds

Realized, after the fact, that my makeshift "paralettes" were a little taller than what CF Maxim used in the demo - not sure how much easier/faster that made it...

To those who are complaining about the unusual functional/gymnastic WOD, if you don't like it - do something else. If you think it's too easy, GO FASTER and make sure you have perfect form. Whatever the case, don't make it sound like we should all be so un-gr8phul for the FREE programming that we have all benefited from.

All movements strict per the instructions. As charbs said upthread, hurry up on the grasshoppers -- your triceps will thank you.

Loved this WOD, was psyched for it since last night. Thanks to Pukie for some new, imaginative programming.

Comment #101 - Posted by: Bill M. m/47/5'3"/134 at October 26, 2011 9:31 AM

Much more difficult than I expected. By the 3rd round, I was struggling on wall climbs and basically started getting weak fast after that.

I finished 4 rounds as RX'ed, though I probably spent as much time on round 4 as the first 3.... will be ready next time to go 6 rounds.

Comment #102 - Posted by: damn at October 26, 2011 9:32 AM

First CF WOD ever! Thought I was in decent shape, run, lift weights, play with the kids, etc. Saw the games on ESPN and said, "Those people are in shape!" So I am dedicating myself to CF. With that being said, my core is junk, my stamina is junk, my shoulders are junk! 2 rds in 14 minutes and I couldn't push myself up the wall on the wall climbs. When I saw this, I thought I can shoulder press 165 for 6 reps so I should be able to at least 5 rds in 20 minutes. Did not realize the whole body could be taxed so much so quickly!

Comment #105 - Posted by: Dillon Bear at October 26, 2011 9:49 AM

Gotta say, this one looks like some fun. In some way, at some time I'll find a way to do it. I really enjoyed the looks and comments in my gym the last time we did wall climbs.

It used to be that you had to figure stuff out on a new or novel WOD on your own, or maybe with a little help from a picture; if you were lucky there was some stuff over in "Exercises and Demos" to lend a hand. For about, what, a year now we've had WOD demos almost every day. Unless you are "in country" and don't have access to the videos, there's really no excuse any more for asking "how do I DO that?", is there? Tips, subs for stuff that's just out there...sure, but it seems that the folks posting the WOD's are intent on putting folks like me out of the helpful hints business with the videos, which is more than cool.

Don't like a posted WOD? Think it's not your definition of "crossfitty" or not your cuppa? That's cool, too. Frankly, I'd rather hear what you subbed because you might have done something cool that I could steal for a future day when I can't do whatever's posted. But really, it's STILL free, and it's STILL only one version of CrossFit, and if it just doesn't work toward your personal goals (like every 10K whatever doesn't fit mine), is it really necessary to read us chapter and verse about your objections?

BTW, where are all the folks who've been complaining about the absence of rotational movements? How 'bout a little love for the crickets?

Comment #107 - Posted by: jeff reising m/40/6/195 at October 26, 2011 9:52 AM

Kevin C you forced me.
Definitely took me out of my comfort zone.

Unable to get chest all the way to wall on wall climbs.
Up-downs were good.
Parallettes, used concrete blocks, perfect push up handles. All good.
Grasshoppers. Got better as I went but did not have the flexibility to get the shin all the way to the forearm.

Even though some of the reps would not count in an official workout, I counted mine as it is work in progress.
I gave it full effort.

5 rounds plus 3 wall climbs and 10 up-downs.

Good WOD. hard on the arms/shoulders holding the lockout position (esp. wall climbs). Probably tired from 10x2 presses yesterday though.

6 rounds + 8 reps

Comment #115 - Posted by: Jack - Hitchin at October 26, 2011 10:27 AM

6 rounds plus 1 Wall Climb. Thanks for the free programming; it is my escape and has helped me through some dark days. DO IT FOR THOSE WHO NO LONGER CAN.

Great WOD HQ. Love the Constantly Varied Life you give us.

@ bingo, way to make a great case for constructive posts even if ya dislike workout & sub it. seconding the idea that creative sub'bing is helpful for those of us who won't be medal-ing any time soon at a regional event ;)

couldn't do even 1 wall climb at Y at 6am today: strength or technique or both?

now that I re-watched vid I know why: duh, wall climbs start with a pushup (and push back, and up the wall go the feet).

now that I read the last 40 comments & see how challenging / fun folks find this, will definitely find time for it in next couple of days. plates + perfect pushup handles @ Y will work for parallette-sub.

or i'll do it in backyard with lawn chairs inst of parallettes. probably a bunch easier since chairs are tall, but form-focus will keep it real i hope.

and now that I have a couple of KBs, and some extra pvc from a lax-goal project, it looks like making my own parallettes is a good fall-winter project. any pvc-parallette-people got build yer own links to share here or plans to share by mail?

36/M/6'00/188

First WOD after a 6 month hiatus due to medical reasons. Looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. Incidentally, I am cleared for everything except valsalva under any load. So, no tightening up on ANY lifts, gymnastics, ANYTHING. I have to be able to breathe through any movement. Bicuspid Aortic Valve. Look it up. Get yourself checked by a cardiologist so you don't wind up dead. Makes it tough, but at least I can still workout.

Anyway, I got 3 rounds + 3 WC + 3 UD. Wall climbs were not all chest to wall. Some ended up as belly button to wall. Those things were TOUGH.

It will be a bit of a climb to get back to where I was. I'm excited to be back in the mix.

Comment #122 - Posted by: Dan D. at October 26, 2011 10:53 AM

power-girl, I'm glad I was able to get you to take the plunge. Kind of fun, wasn't it?

As for me, 6 rounds + wall walks + up-downs.

Some of those wall walks were getting pretty ugly by the end.

Wednesday 111026
Complete as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of:
3 Wall climbs
10 Up-downs
5 Parallette pass-throughs (forward + back = 1)
10 Grasshoppers (right + left = 1)

7 rounds 1 wallclimb.

Brutal on the shoulders. Wall climb the hold back, they got really nasty, I though I was going to fall a few times on the wall.


Everything else ok but everything hit the shoulders.

Oh all reps legit. No cheating or short reps.

Comment #126 - Posted by: Nik Nichols 40yo 5'6'' 167lbs at October 26, 2011 11:18 AM

I loved all of it!

Difficult for me - I had never done any of these movements before & it took a lot of time for me to figure out the coordination aspect. That's ok - everything got easier/better/smoother with practice -except for the wall climbs, those got dicey. Happy to have completed 3 rounds + 1 climb with my face intact.

Looking forward to doing all of these again.

I think the up/downs may help me keep my abs on during the open hip portion of a kip... Hope so!

Fun! Thanks!

Comment #127 - Posted by: Ness F/42/136lbs/5'3" at October 26, 2011 11:28 AM

bingo- I totally agree.

Also, I like it when you, and others, post workouts that are different than that day's posted WOD. It gives me ideas for the inevitable day when I can't do the posted WOD, and still want to workout. Keep it up.

BTW, you will enjoy today's.

6 rounds - for my first time doing this WOD I found it very fun and challenging. Its awesome to be creative using your own body and virtually nothing else for a workout. I used 2 chairs as my crappy gym has no parralettes.

Pretty muched sucked at all exercises. Muddled through three rounds, not rx'd as far as form. (used a rope with pvc handles in loops, hung over monkey bars about 2' off the ground, for the pass throughs. This was a great WOD for core strength and flexibility. 5'8", M, 50, 250

Comment #140 - Posted by: bulldog at October 26, 2011 12:56 PM

I love the creative subs for parallettes! CFitters, get it done. :) I also like the variety in the programming. Never be afraid to think or work out of the box-take the pun, if you want it.

5 or 6 rounds (lost/forgot) plus 5/10 u and d's.

much harder than i expected, especially the wall climbs. nice functional aspect to this workout.

Have to admit when I saw the WOD I was excited to try. 23 year in Gymnastics and finished the WOD physically devastated.

Thank You CrossFit! can't wait to see whats up next.

Comment #151 - Posted by: Chris Mott at October 26, 2011 2:01 PM

Look, I really didn't want to say anything but this is getting a bit much. I've been doing crossfit for awhile now and part of the reason I fell in love with it was for the community. I became addicted to the WOD's and nothing will change that, but the community seems to be changing. At least on here.

Yea a few people complain, and while it's not preferable, it happens. There are also a lot of people who need subs either due to injuries, not having equipment, what have you. Asking for a sub or how to do an exercise shouldn't be justification for being rude to them. You were all new at one point and while a newbie could google/YouTube an exercise or go to the Exercise/Demo page, be a pal and just answer their question or politely direct them to the page. They may not even know it existed.

There's absolutley no reason to tell someone they shouldn't do CrossFit because they need a sub, don't like a WOD, or can't do it. That's their decision not yours. Let's try to be a little more understanding and supportive. This message doesn't apply to everyone and I apologize if this comes across as rude because I certainly don't mean it to. I just wanted to address something that I see in the comment threads a lot recently and hope that as a group we can maybe handle a few comments better. Thanks!

W/U: 3 rnds of bar hang, 30 sec; static stretch of shldrs (bands); foam roll. Strict weighted pull-up, 3x3 at 45-55-65.

As Rx: 6 rnds + 3 wall climbs + 10 up-downs + 5 pass-throughs.

C/D: skipped.

Glad to see wall climbs back in the WOD. Came in with sore/tight shoulders. So it didn't take long for them to catch fire. Felt my abs on the pass-throughs a lot more than I had expected.

i got 3 rounds!! -____-
and i used cinder blocks for parallettes. just be careful if you use cinder blocks. put them on a nice flat surface so they dont tip over.

Comment #157 - Posted by: Zachary Bermea at October 26, 2011 2:21 PM

So I've been trying to find some kind of object to accomplish the 5 Parallette pass-throughs (forward + back = 1). Ive even tried bar stools but those didnt work.
any ideas of what i can supplement for those or what i can use to achieve those. thanks

@#124 Thatcher, I'm out in Spokane. Do you work out in that gym down in Latah? I see rings hanging in there when I drive by it everyday as I work out in Cheney. I'm working out at a OZ up on the South hill. They've got enough equipment to do most WOD's up there (though I just went and made my own paralettes today). I've been talking with one of the trainers up there about Crossfit, yesterday I see him and another trainer over in the corner doing yesterday's main page WOD. Pretty cool.

This was my first ever CrossFit workout. I thought it sucked while I was doing it, but it was the good suck. I love the burn of a great workout. I'm an NCAA wrestler, so I'm in decent shape, but this workout definitely smoked me, that's for sure.

Wow. I've been lifting weights on and off for the last 6 years. Lifting 4-5 times a week including cardio for the last 3 months. I thought I was in good shape until I started crossfit a few days ago. This is crazy hard. I always have worked up a good sweat with my own workouts but this way harder. Not used to interval training. Let's see how long I can keep up with this.
I can't do HSPUs yet not even against a wall. Is it a possible goal to be able to do one completely vertical against a wall for balance by 12/25/2011?
Thanks for the workout. Much different from what I'm used to in a good way.

tough WOD!

Was trying to do the wall climbs with socks on (so as not to mark up the walls). Gave that up about round 3 - went barefoot, screw the walls. Would be easier to do with padded floors . . . especially towards the later rounds when it wasn't always clear how one would be coming down from the WallClimb exactly.

Comment #200 - Posted by: jomofrodo M/47/6'/172 at October 26, 2011 9:46 PM

4 rounds of "Holy crap, I will never get out of shape again!" I'm loving Crossfit. I've been at it for 3 weeks now and each WOD is a ball buster and that is what I love about it!!

Speaking as a newbie, I find watching the demo's and doing a few practice runs before going all out helps me a lot.

After 3 weeks I am finally, for the first time, able to do overhand pullup's (not that many, but I can do it). Talk about a measure of how great this program is.

Keep on Keepin' on!!

I did not do this WOD today as I took the dog for a hike and while doing so reflected on my messed up hips, tight shoulders and numb arm. I think I need a week of mobility wods only. Never the less, while walking past the paralettes I tried a couple of pass throughs and was reminded once again that I have a long torso and short arms.... I couldn't clear the ground. I would have to do walk throughs or use some higher chairs. This short-arm affliction rears it's ugly head everynow and then... Like trying to pull myself up to sit on a wall (I have to wiggle or "walk" my bum into place) .. Or in elementary
school in gym class when we used did vaults over the horse
and I kept tripping on the horse when I tried to swing my legs
through my arms.

So... For now I mobilize and I will give these movements a try in the near future.

didn't have paralettes, just skipped that part, 6 rounds and gave up. (about 18 minutes) Not a quitter, just don't have the gas for crossfit yet, and the wall climb just wasn't happening again. lol

Comment #206 - Posted by: Todd at October 26, 2011 11:42 PM

Subed two steps for parrallettes worked fine just flat hands on top. No drama. Good WOD after having done heavy WODs all week. Actually smashed me more than expected especially the wall climbs. Eh tough will be doing more of these now. 3 in 14 min before I got called away.

Funny, this WOD really represents what Crossfit is supposed to be about, random athletic workouts...yet people are crying about it being random, and asking for subs, hilarious.

Attempt one: one round in 4 minutes

(Exploring-baby interference)
Note:
I had fun with the up-downs, good flexability+speed movement.
Focused on staying supported at the 'down' portion.
It was NOT "a great way to solidify bad burpee form"
grasshoppers are the evil twin of mountain climbers!!! :-)
Attempt 3: 6 rounds + 1 wall climb

My shoulders were still a little tight from the OHS last WOD. Almost all these movements were new or almost never done before. This was a real grind.. just push for each set/ rep.
For me the hardest leg was the wall climbs. I put yoga blocks on top of workout benches to do the paralette exercise.
Fun to try new stuff.

As rx'd, 7 rounds.

Active rest day (80% effort). These were fun exercises to try. The wall climbs and grasshoppers were probably the toughest - grasshoppers just b/c of the number of them; wall climbs started easy but as shoulder fatigued, got harder.

Pass-throughs and up-downs felt easy. Up-downs were way easier than burpees; did not expect that. Great shoulder and core work in this WOD.
