deja vu! let's do this!

How has Maddox done this already? He doesn't have an automatic slot at Regionals.

Comment #2 - Posted by: Erik at March 21, 2012 5:10 PM

It's going to be interesting to gauge the improvement of athletes who competed last year. People are already complaining about a lack of creativity, but I think this was a good move. Yes, CrossFit is supposed to be constantly varied, but benchmarks are also important.

Comment #3 - Posted by: Kenny at March 21, 2012 5:11 PM

Neil Maddox can't be happy about getting the same score as last year :)

I think the whole community was calling for a Diane ladder instead of Fran, but all good. Let's get it!

sweet lord. Fran-tastic Nightmare.

Comment #5 - Posted by: Noel at March 21, 2012 5:18 PM

I knew there'd be pull ups - but yeah, looking more for a clean and jerk / pull up wod

Comment #6 - Posted by: steve at March 21, 2012 5:38 PM

No handstand push ups. I'm so happy!

Comment #7 - Posted by: Chris at March 21, 2012 5:39 PM

I will triple the amrap time because I'm the man and I suck all at the same time. Post comments below...

Comment #8 - Posted by: jstick911 at March 21, 2012 5:41 PM

The real challenge is finding 2.5 lb. plates.

Comment #9 - Posted by: Graham at March 21, 2012 5:43 PM

Why no heavy wods? I just wanted to deadlift tomorrow :(

Comment #10 - Posted by: Alan at March 21, 2012 5:53 PM

So basically, Fran goes to hell, and brings back 5 lbs for the men.

Comment #11 - Posted by: Joseph at March 21, 2012 5:58 PM

wow....
I cant wait for this one :]

Comment #12 - Posted by: ben at March 21, 2012 6:08 PM

ATTENTION: Let me just start by saying ive been crossfitt'n for over a year and love the sport and community but something recently happened that gave me a wake up call...

After completing wod 11.4 (wall balls from hell) on Thurs, my brother, a D1 tennis player and great athlete went to the beach only to return Sunday with EXTREME muscle pain and rusty urine, YES HE GOT RHABDOMYOLYSIS. I know we have all heard the stories but its never real until it happens to someone close to you. This is just a heads up, good athletes are susceptible to rhaddo so be careful!! Always hydrate pre wod and rehydrate post wod and avoid excessive heat post wod (The Games in Cali is just asking for this...)

I am in no way bashing crossfit, but I just want people to be aware of this and BE CAREFUL. My brother is doing better after 3 days in the hospital but prob wont be released for another few days and was told NO PHYSICAL ACTIVITY for a full month!! I know none of us want to go thru what he is so be careful, crossfit is challenging and gets people out of their comfort zone which can be good for improvement but also dangerous at times. Keep working hard folks, but just know rhabdo is SERIOUS and should not be taken lightly. Good luck to everyone in the Open...let the Games begin

Comment #13 - Posted by: Joe-fiT at March 21, 2012 6:15 PM

I was hoping for something heavy- like 3-5-7 315lb deadlift, hspu, chest to bar pullup.

Comment #14 - Posted by: Sean at March 21, 2012 6:17 PM

How do some athletes pre-qualify and get an automatic slot at regionals?

Comment #15 - Posted by: John Pierce at March 21, 2012 6:50 PM

Why is there a giant gorilla standing behind Clever in that picture?....oh wait thats just Khalipa

Wow, nice job everyone. Looks like I got my work cut out for me tomorrow.

Comment #18 - Posted by: Geno at March 21, 2012 7:23 PM

as many reps in 7 min
100lb thruster/ chest to bar pull up
(start with 3 reps and multiples of 3)
completed 3,6,9 and did 12 thrusters and 6 pull ups.

Comment #19 - Posted by: Eric Montis at March 21, 2012 7:29 PM

Noone Pre-Qualifies this year, the only thing that may change is for the regionals if one of the top CF Games Final competitors from last year takes a top 3 spot in their region an extra person will be taken for the 4th slot for that region.

Comment #20 - Posted by: ckatech at March 21, 2012 8:21 PM

M/ 37/ 133 lbs/ 5'-6"
As Rx: 96 reps
Completed round of 15 + 6 Thrusters
Felt pretty good.
I wish I could have had bumper plates to just be able to drop the weight at the top of the thrusters.
I need to work on my position in my thrusters... I need to work on staying on my heels more. I was coming up on my toes a bit. I have to jump back on the bar faster. I just watched last years video of 11.6 .. it was very similar until the last 2 minutes. 10 more reps this year... next year even more. I was pretty happy since my left shoulder and back have been kind of tweeked/ pulled for about 2 weeks and I've been working through the pain and minimizing my workouts on those areas during the weeks to allow for me to go at the Open WODs more freely. I have been just treating the Open WODs as normal training WODS, only doing them once. I've made good improvements on most areas, especially the wallball and the box jump from last year. I knew they were weaknesses and now I feel a lot more comfortable with them. My strength has gone up as well, but my snatch still needs to bump up a bit. I'm still only about 133 lbs, but better at almost all areas of fitness, and a year older. Happy overall. New weaknesses addressed and things to work on all year long now. I actually think the Open should have been 6 weeks long again.
I think this is a great test WOD. It's even for big, small, tall, short.. there's an advantage and a disadvantage for all people. WORK CAPACITY. I'll bet Spealler kills this one.

Comment #21 - Posted by: Anton at March 21, 2012 8:48 PM

I guess the best way to describe Neal Maddox is illmatic

Comment #22 - Posted by: T M at March 21, 2012 8:55 PM

Ahhh, the 7 minute time domain. My favorite. Too short to slow down, to long just suck it up and get by. You actually have to be fit!

EW

Comment #23 - Posted by: Eric at March 21, 2012 9:01 PM

Not a fan of this. In every region, guys will qualify for regionals without ever having lifted anything heavier than 165 pounds. In some cases, they'll have only managed to lift 165 pounds a handful of times.

CF should take "strength" out of its 10 fitness parameters. It obviously doesn't matter.

Comment #24 - Posted by: Matt Shnark at March 21, 2012 9:40 PM

What weight in KG should I do this with. The conversion of 100# is 45.359kg. Should I do this with 45KG or should I do it with the nearest I can get without a lower weight. Which would be 47.5.
Thanks

Comment #25 - Posted by: Sean at March 21, 2012 11:03 PM

#24 Matt,

Maybe I'm just an HQ apologist, but c'mon dude. Didn't we go through this same thing last year? Should we take flexibility out as well because there wasn't a max effort sit and reach? (See last year's video from HQ on the subject. I thought it made this point well.) This is the first step in a long process and it'll work itself out. The folks who make it to Regionals are going to be plenty strong, let alone the Games.

And not that it's required, but that's an awful strong statement for a guy who isn't even registered for the Open as far as I can tell. You might have a good reason for this but how about you join in and share in this with the community and instead of picking at perceived holes.

Comment #26 - Posted by: Ross at March 22, 2012 12:08 AM

As RXd:
15 rounds + 5 reps

Comment #27 - Posted by: HOL at March 22, 2012 12:18 AM

Had to bump up to 105# since we don't have any 2 1/2 lb. plates.

when this wod was posted for the last crossfit games, is it me or was it 115 ;bs thrusters? because that's what i remember doing last time, and if i recall, i also remember it sucking. In any combination, thrusters and pullups nearly kill me

Comment #39 - Posted by: Andy at March 22, 2012 6:19 AM

What app is that??!??

Comment #40 - Posted by: Eric at March 22, 2012 6:26 AM

Now M/40/190/5-10 on 22 Mar 2012.
Did 3:30 approx 1/2 the time to get a feel for the real WOD, got through rnd of 12= 60 by 3:33
brok rnd of 9 into 9 Thr and easy 7-2 CTBPU.
Rnd of 12 7-5, and 12 str CTBPU. Will need to get 8-7 for Thrusters in rnd of 15. Get all the PU, then hang on to get Thrusters until time expires...We shall see. Goal should be 60 at 3:30. 90 at 6:00, then start hitting thrusters.
We shall see...

Last time
Comment #283 - Posted by: Matt A at April 30, 2011 8:41 AM

M/39/185/5-10
scored 88..
Should have gotten at least 90.. too much time resting on thrusters.
CTB were 3-6-9-5,4,3- 5,5,3 time
Thursters were 3-6-7,2-7,5-7,5,3.
I expected at least 90, then a few thrusters, rats...maybe next time.

Where is Mikko?

Comment #42 - Posted by: 42elysium at March 22, 2012 7:02 AM

I modified my workout some by doing the reps for time. 3-6-9-12-15-18-21 reps of 60 lb thrusters and kipped pull ups. 18 and 21 reps of pull ups were 25 lb assists. Time: 23:27.4

Comment #43 - Posted by: Crystal Sweeney at March 22, 2012 7:07 AM

Rx'd - 90 reps

Whats the song playing in the background??

Comment #45 - Posted by: Natey B at March 22, 2012 7:32 AM

Mikko is out for this year, shoulder injury.

For those complaining about lack of heavy lifting. This is a Crossfit competition, not a powerlifting competition. In my opinion CF is MetCon + Lifting, not Lifting + MetCon.

Plus, 12.2 Snatches got pretty heavy!

12.5 is a good test of functional strength and fitness.

@Joe-fiT I agree. Rhabdo is serious. YTherefor I would like to know about your broher's incident. May I ask the circumstances of this occurrence? Did your brother not hydrate post wod? How old is your brother? How long has he been doing Crossfit? How often does he crossfit, etc?

Comment #51 - Posted by: Jon I at March 22, 2012 8:57 AM

only 90 total :( Terrible form on thrusters!

Comment #52 - Posted by: Matt at March 22, 2012 9:17 AM

A speciality course should be created for "effiecency tips" alone. With that all applicants must meet certain phyical requirments such as: High CF Total, Above avg. Fran and Helen times, etc.

@#38 Eric,

The app is called "Timers Pro"

It was used in the 12.1, 12.2, and 12.5 videos.

I believe it's on iTunes for iPhone and iPad.

Comment #60 - Posted by: Kelli at March 22, 2012 10:10 AM

@54 there is no finishing work out you simply run out of time. You go up each round till 7min. Also to all the whiners put up and shut up. I think open once again has shown the fittest ie froning,Khalipa,clever.

89 reps, though I just watched the video and saw a few thrusters that are a bit high in the squat

Thank you, HQ, for the privilege of participating in the Open. For me, this was an experience of seeing where I'm deficient - in a CrossFit career in which I'm quite satisfied otherwise.

Good luck to everyone moving on to the next round, and especially my fellow Masters!

Comment #84 - Posted by: dawgsrus at March 22, 2012 1:46 PM

As rx'd, 112 reps (PR).

This time, I got through the 18 thrusters, and 4 reps into the 18 pull-ups. I paced this out pretty well - just about 18 reps per minute to start, slowed to more like 15 in the middle. Chest-to-bar pull-ups felt better, but still hard - had to break them starting in the round of 12. Legs started feeling it on the thrusters - broke those starting in the round of 15. 4 reps more than last year, but this one hurt more - maybe b/c I did this outside, and it was a warm, muggy afternoon.

Complete as many reps as possible in 7 minutes of the following rep scheme:
25 pound dumbbell Thruster, 3 reps
3 Chest to bar Pull-ups
25 pound dumbbell Thruster, 6 reps
6 Chest to bar Pull-ups
25 pound dumbbell Thruster, 9 reps
9 Chest to bar Pull-ups
25 pound dumbbell Thruster, 12 reps
12 Chest to bar Pull-ups
25 pound dumbbell Thruster, 15 reps
15 Chest to bar Pull-ups
25 pound dumbbell Thruster, 18 reps
18 Chest to bar Pull-ups
25 pound dumbbell Thruster, 21 reps
21 Chest to bar Pull-ups…

This is a timed workout. If you complete the round of 21, go on to 24. If you complete 24, go on to 27, etc.

Workout as prescribed 98 reps. Had I known I was 2 away from 100 I woulda tried to sneak those last 2 out somehow. I love these types of workouts before and 20 minutes after the workout. Reminds me of my days as a 400 Meter hurdles. Same feelings towards that race as this workout.

Probably going to do this tomorrow or this weekend, and sub 50# kbs for thrusters and pushups for pullups. Sticking to low volume on thrusters and pullups until knee and elbow aren't twitchy (could be a while).

Did a hack-version of this Friday 3.23 after long day of work - perfect Friday pm workout for me.

Instead of high-rep thrusters + C2B pullups, which would mess with knees and elbows, respectively, I went for 50# kbs + hand-release pushups.

Got into round of 21 and did 21 kbs + 10 pushups

Total reps: 157

How pathetic!! :( (pullups definitely ate up time)
