Comment #7 - Posted by: Eric at March 30, 2012 6:18 PM

Does anyone else think that the way he throws tantrums on his lifts is kind of childish? In the videos posted by Orlando I've now seen him (1) throw weights across the room; (2) kick the wall; (3) swear profusely. I hope it's not just me, but one of the reason I look up to some of these athletes is their decorum and ability to get along with competitors. As much as the guy is a monster, I sometimes think that his videos send the wrong message about the Crossfit community. In any case, great performance, would love to see the whole thing posted so I could get an idea of the rest periods and number of missed reps involved in an effort of that caliber.

Comment #8 - Posted by: DL at March 30, 2012 6:31 PM

Rob Orlando is my hero.

Comment #9 - Posted by: Bryan at March 30, 2012 6:34 PM

Most impressive Crossfit feat I've seen...EVER. That beats when I "competed" against him and seeing him C+J 300 only 3 times. (THAT was the previous coolest Crossit thing I had ever seen)

She. Is. A. Bad. A$$.

Thank you for serving Olivia

Comment #11 - Posted by: bomberitobrian at March 30, 2012 6:36 PM

DL - I agree. As much as I admire Rob's athletic abilities and his enormous strength, the antics and behavior have just got to stop. He's got a very positive image in the sport and all he does is give the critics reasons to poke at him.

I see him as a focused man. An honorable man. A husband. A father. An icon. That all equates to enormous responsibility and respect from so many.

Don't ruin it because of something completely within your span of control.

Comment #12 - Posted by: TM at March 30, 2012 6:39 PM

I don't think it is childish: I think it is realistic. I get tired of seeing all of these super humble individuals that never fail. I bet a lot of people do that - they just don't want the public to see it.

We all aren't a bunch of future Rich Froning, Chris Spealler or Mikko Salo level athletes. A lot of us will just be the best we can be. And when we fail at something, sometimes it is just going to make you plain old mad.

#DL

Showing natural human emotions is childish? Are you serious?

Rob walks around with a smile on his face, one of the reasons he can make a 300lb Grace even possible is by attacking this workout and frustration during the workout is a by product of his focus and intensity.

I agree with others, one of the most amazing performances you will ever see

Comment #17 - Posted by: Aaron Wilson at March 30, 2012 7:14 PM

I don't know, if I miss a lift I might get a little angry, helps focus my energy at something, might utter a curse word or two, but to go off a kick a wall, eh, not my style. If it works for him, so be it. I crossfit with other people and I'd rather not act like I want attention. I think the only time I've kicked something is when I slipped on a box jump and my shin came down on the corner, the same shin that was recovering from a beating in a recent Krav Maga test. Hurt like a bitch and I kicked the box, then completed the workout. Still isn't healed. Point is different things psych people out, its just not my style. That's a badass amount of weight to move though, so if it works for him, more power to him.

Comment #18 - Posted by: Jonathan at March 30, 2012 7:17 PM

Just an old Rob O. video for this wod that I've always loved. Enjoy :D

Comment #19 - Posted by: Chris T at March 30, 2012 7:30 PM

definately don't think it's childish the way rob reacts in his workouts. You think rob went into this workout thinking "i bet it'll take about 30 minutes", no I bet he went in thinking "I wonder if I can even complete this". So every rep counts, this is a massive feat, one that makes you wonder if anyone else could complete it....it shows intensity so I say good for him for trying someone so mind boggling.

Comment #20 - Posted by: paul at March 30, 2012 7:36 PM

Rob is a stud. 300lb Grace WTF!! I am confused as to why virgin ears are complaining about a little cussing and emotion from a guys who is extremely competitive and trying to overcome such a feat. All people are motivated by different things. I have definitely shouted cuss words during some of my workouts. It makes my adrenaline increase and gets me through my sticking pointand on to the next lift/movement. KEEP DOING WHAT YOUR DOING ROB. Awesome video.

Comment #21 - Posted by: Corey at March 30, 2012 7:42 PM

@ DL and other "childish" trolls

Candidly speaking,
What annoys me is when these people have to look for the most insignificant things, such as Rob reacting emotionally to something that is important to him. The fact is he just moved a total of 90,000 pounds from the ground to overhead. We come on this sight to get better, don't turn this into another annoying chat room where all people do is debate in frivolity.
Sincerely,
John: A fellow firebreather.

Comment #22 - Posted by: John at March 30, 2012 7:54 PM

Amazing feat of strenth. I have seen many amazing powerlifting accomplishments, but that is sick. Something for us all to shoot for.

Comment #23 - Posted by: jward86 at March 30, 2012 7:57 PM

I don't think that you can equate his reaction to failed reps with intensity. I think plenty of athletes display intensity in their movements and their behavior when the timer ends. I think to equate intensity with irrational, uncontrolled outbursts of anger is to misconstrue the reasoning behind why Crossfit encourages its athletes to push themselves.

I think those who think his outbursts would ever be acceptable in a box are in the minority. Rob is an exemplar of what transitioning to Crossfit can do for a power lifter, strong man, or oly lifter. But when I see him flip out (especially some of the times in the video where's he going for a one rep, I repeat ONE rep, deadlift max), it makes me question why his videos still make the main page.

Comment #24 - Posted by: DL at March 30, 2012 7:59 PM

Videos posted showing bad form to accomplish some arbitrary goal is a bit reckless. Leave your egos at the door.

Comment #25 - Posted by: Josh at March 30, 2012 8:07 PM

Can anyone tell me why Rob is going from a jumping foot position to a really wide stance in both the clean and the jerk? Isn't that really inefficient? Just wondering.

Also who cares if Rob is cursing or freaking out. He didn't ask you to watch his training videos.

Comment #26 - Posted by: Jay at March 30, 2012 8:11 PM

I love Rob, I love his videos, and I love his passion. My guess is his displeasure with himself on those misses comes out of a place of caring so much. I wish I cared that much about some of my workouts.

Comment #27 - Posted by: Ross at March 30, 2012 8:13 PM

I didnt know Jami was at crossfit central london. Cool! That gym rocks

Comment #28 - Posted by: Ron G at March 30, 2012 8:21 PM

All the comments regarding Rob O's behavior during the workout are ridiculous. I seriously think that some people are simply looking for a reason to complain in life and will find one anywhere they can. That was an incredible show of strength and determination. You have to be fierce to do a workout like that. Missing a rep by inches is going to make you mad. If it doesn't, you probably do not have what it take to complete it.

Comment #29 - Posted by: Shane at March 30, 2012 8:24 PM

rob's videos are the best. not childish. perfectly normal for a man to get upset with a failed lift. leave it alone.

Comment #30 - Posted by: J at March 30, 2012 8:35 PM

The tag line at DL's box must read "Forging Elite Whiners" Seriously-you need to stop being lame.

Comment #31 - Posted by: craig at March 30, 2012 8:42 PM

Wow

Comment #32 - Posted by: Zak at March 30, 2012 8:46 PM

Rob's 300lb Grace is unbelievable! I think his outbursts are pretty hilarious. I am sure that every missed rep in a 300# Grace is infuriating. Rob O videos are awesome.

Comment #33 - Posted by: Dave S at March 30, 2012 8:49 PM

Love the intensity Rob brings to the table!

Comment #34 - Posted by: Eric N at March 30, 2012 8:49 PM

stop complaining, pick up something heavy, and have fun. three things Rob always does. and for those who think he is politically incorrect with his actions...needs to set a better example for within CF...well maybe we need a little less political correctness in these times and someone who is real like Rob and isn't afraid to show some emotion at failure. I personally want my kids to know failing a "rep" in life does suck and I want them to get pissed off about it...and then succeed after the failure to show themselves and the world that they didn't let it keep them down.

Comment #35 - Posted by: Scott Lewis at March 30, 2012 9:01 PM

From an Olympic lifting point of view I am disappointed in this video his clean technique is lacking, and most of "jerks" are press outs. He is very strong but this is not done to standard and to me that is the problem with crossfit lately too many of the elite athletes are losing their technique in an effort to achieve the quickest time possible. I would rather see it take him an hour and do full cleans (not power cleans) and legal jerks (without press outs) that would be much more impressive than this.

Comment #36 - Posted by: jbark60 6'1" 200 at March 30, 2012 9:38 PM

at my gym they have a couple of concept 2 row machines but they are old and jenky, they just got a new machine called the matrix but i tried it out and it just didnt seem right, does anyone have any experience with these matrix rowers. They look super nice but it just didnt feel right

Comment #37 - Posted by: blake trippy at March 30, 2012 10:06 PM

What is the advantage in using an abmat? Is there an advantage above simply performing situps on the floor? Is it better for your back?

Comment #38 - Posted by: Joe S at March 30, 2012 10:25 PM

Similar to any other athlete failure is taken to heart, I don't know why people are so butt hurt about rob swearing/getting angry. Am I to believe all the people that posted about it have never sworn or gotten angry because of something they did or didn't do? That's what I thought. A large part of Crossfit is the special operations/police/SWAT/Military population, are you telling me those guys don't swear and get angry? Maybe some people are just sheltered. Personally I find it funny and human that Rob would post those sides of him, shows he too is human.

Comment #39 - Posted by: Casey at March 30, 2012 11:01 PM

Awesome Rob video!!!!

Comment #40 - Posted by: Manuel González at March 30, 2012 11:11 PM

Hey #8 the guy is cleaning and jerking 300lbs 30 times for time he needs to get psyched he missed a lift he is pissed.
Deal with it #8.

Do whatever gets you through the workout. Yell, curse, scream, listen to little river band. Everyone is different

Comment #42 - Posted by: mike at March 30, 2012 11:46 PM

oh come on, judge not least ye be judged first! I do and say what I want in my garage. I did'nt see anyone else in with Rob. Sometimes you have to do what works for you to push yourself, especially when you are going at it solo. I think the fact that everybody "Crossfits" now is part of the problem, what began as a misunderstood approach to fitness, that appealed to those at the tip of the spear is now embraced by the mainstream. It only makes sense that some of the handles will not understand the inner drive it takes to push on, un-scaled when your life or somebody elses is counting on your ability to say f*ck it, kick the wall and get the job done! BAMF.

Well I wouldnt have any problem with the cursing and getting angry, I think whatever you need to get through it sometimes its all good.

I would be interesed to see that "form" from the side though, just out of curiosity.

Comment #49 - Posted by: Michael R at March 31, 2012 3:09 AM

The only thing I see in the Rob Orlando video is a superior athlete striving to be the best and pushing himself. Sometimes you get frustrated and you just have to yell and kick and scream a bit. It's called "pure passion".

Hey flo, welcome to CF! Well a good way to start on getting the right weight is just by feel, these workouts are about pushing ur self, start with the 45 bar and do 1 rep , add 10 pounds till you feel like you would really be pushing it, then drop 10lbs so u have good form! :D
Bam! Have, be, do, beast

DL and the other haters, keep hating. Me, I love seeing passionate folks setting high bars and giving it their all. If they boil over a little, it's not my way, but I understand. I don't understand folks needing to get on the site and anonymously criticize people like Rob Orlando who contribute so much to this community. If you haven't seen this type of behavior in a box or a gym before, you probably aren't seeing people shoot for goals like a 300# Grace.

Comment #57 - Posted by: MattyP 42/M/5'11"/235 at March 31, 2012 4:50 AM

@Jay, I think he wider foot position is due to the load - it is easier to get under it by going wider. I notice the same thing happens when i am pushing max c&j loads

Comment #58 - Posted by: Jkel at March 31, 2012 4:51 AM

Rob's videos are my favorite for the reason that he lets it out. It always cracks me up.

Perfectly said by Shane. I love to see Rob's passion. Think about what he's doing, 30 reps at 300 lb's, he'd better be fired up. That's a huge task. Keep doing your thing, Rob.

Comment #66 - Posted by: Nick at March 31, 2012 6:31 AM

I am new at crossfit, did Barbara yesterday, it was awesome. Wanted to do this WOD, any idea what a female should be putting up?
Also, any advise on what to do with ur palms? Mine are bruised and blistering from pull ups. I wore gloves.but it didnt seem to help. I am trying really hard to get kipping pull UPS down, so I need advise.

For MOST people, the feet jumping way out wide is an artifact from trying to push the bar over your head rather than pushing yourself underneath of it. While it might not be the most mechanically efficient position, 300 x 30 is completely insane and ridiculously badass.

Wanted more cardio with my leg workout today so did some incline walking. Treadmill at 20 degree incline, started at 2.5 mph. Every 4 min bump it up by 0.5 mph. Only touch hand rails for speed adjustments (safety first and all that).

2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 3.5, 3.0, 2.5.

28 minutes total. 377 calories burned. Around 1700" elevation gained. On the last 4 min section I did some footwork practice (running backward, crossover steps and full 360 degree spins).

That gets the heart pumping!

hey form whiners---show me a single world record oly lift where the lifter had perfect form. form will suffer when testing limits, period. if your form is perfect, and that's all you care about-great. a guy at our gym does that. my form sucks at real heavy lifts, but i lift over 100lb more than him on most lifts-and i'm not injured. the athlete is responsible for knowing his limits, his risks, and what his goals are. pretty sure they could care less about a bloggers criticisms. so, whine away, while the rest of us pursue our fitness goal.

Comment #82 - Posted by: mtvet at March 31, 2012 9:36 AM

I love reading everyone's opinions in the comments section on the mainsite; I always appreciate the subjectivity of the human organism. I love Rob; what an inspiring dude. Haha!

For all of you that aren't happy with Orlando's video I have the following WOD to protest...

*pose precisely 30 times between rounds or until that cute girl on the elliptical machine notices you.

I loved the show of emotion from Rob. It's great to see a world-class athlete really push his limits, almost to the point of not be able to complete a workout.

That's a great example for beginners, or intermediates. They may not think they can get through a regular rx Grace, or Isabel. But knowing how much the big boys struggle should inspire anyone to do just a little more.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiam, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. Theodore Roosevelt, Paris 23 April 1910

Do the deeds. Swear or not. Just do your best to do the deeds, just like Rob.

wanted more 95-115-135-145-155-165-175[x1]-> yes, I was pissed I could not get it higher than my head at 175 when I power cleaned in up 3 times.

Good: reached my max power clean weight even though I have been laying off those, felt more confident on my injured foot
Bad: could not get that last set done, today was more cardio

Comment #106 - Posted by: Greg Whelan at March 31, 2012 1:56 PM

i think rob's landing stance is too wide. weight of the load shouldn't be the deciding factor. I doubt he front squats 300lbs that wide. It's because he's trying to split the difference between the height to which he is pulling the bar and his ability to get his elbows around, as opposed to pulling himself under the bar and receiving it in a true front squat. If he did that chances are a lot of those lifts wouldn't be missed lifts, and then the tantrums would not be on display.

And while I don't dispute Rob's badassery, perhaps the exponential growth of crossfit should mandate they start putting a disclaimer on these videos: "do not attempt without the supervision of a qualified instructor with the appropriate weight.". Videos with bad form at arbitrarily enormous weights serves...what purpose?

Wow people need to grow up, he's an intense competitor. The regular guy that does these workouts might not feel the need to get that intense, but this is a real competition to rob....and like some else said, at that weight every failed rep costs incredible energy and strength, to miss it and "waste" that on a rep that does not count would make me pretty freaking angry too! Working out is not about dancing in flowers, you sweat, get nasty smelling, rip calluses, bleed, and get intense.

Wow! People need to get a life. Questioning Rob O who did 300# Grace?? Form issues??? Swearing?? Talk about BS. This is what is turning crossfit into annoyance. Everybody has an opinion about the negative and how perfect their training is. Positive people. Focus on the positive. A 300# Grace!!!! Insane. I would love to see a vid of every person that questioned form and make sure you are all perfect.
Well done Rob!!!

Based upon Prilepin's Chart, I would have liked to see how quickly Mr. O could "overhead anyway" 10 reps @ 300# (assuming the weight is appx 90% of his 1RM)

Mr. O is a beast - I bet he could pop off 10 ME reps in under 5 minutes; which is 6X faster than 30 reps.

7x3 reps of thrusters (though in the WOD demo they said they were doing 5 sets.... Which probably led to some confusion.)

95-105-115-125-105-105-105

At 125, the thrusters were ok, but controlling the weight on the way down was the trick....

Good workout.... Not too long ago, a single 95# thruster felt like it would blow my shoulders apart.

Comment #149 - Posted by: Spider Chick at April 1, 2012 6:08 AM

I won't apologize for the language in this video. I spent years thinking about whether this wod was possible and I finally made an attempt. I failed on 6 reps and even as I got close to the end I wasn't sure I'd be able to finish. My frustration was not a missed lift but possibly failing the wod and having to repeat it.

It should be noted that when I wod with any class I usually hide in a corner and never make a sound. This workout was done in the middle of the day with an empty gym. I would never act like this in class nor would I try a wod like this with loads of people around.

Did this WOD for the first time. Managed 145lbs for 3 but only 155 for one (progressed 115lb 125lb 135lb). I was disappointed, so I did 3 Rounds of Barbara as punishment. Those were 2:05, 3:02, and 5:51. Methinks I would like to punish myself again like that. It has not killed me, so it will make me stronger...or very tired.

I wanted to get less than 6 mins, but it's o.k.

Post WOD work:(about 10 minutes post WOD)
5 min. AMRAP Burpess jumping 6" above max. reach (like Open Games 12.1 but only for 5 minutes)
I got 90 reps... HARD work after Grace... glad I picked 5 minutes.. I was trying to keep on tabata with 20 reps then rest for like 10 secs... stopeed that after 2:30... I couldn't keep up that pace.

@MGlez For wrist flexibility, simply putting your palm against the wall with your arm locked and rotating your elbow around will help. However, if the problem is with holding the bar on your chest, most of the time it is Pec and Lat flexibly that is the problem.
