Alternating leg squats means five on each leg right?

Comment #1 - Posted by: carla at April 15, 2012 5:19 PM

it doesn't specify. I suppose you can do 10 on each leg, alternating legs each round to minimize your time.. Or however you want.

Spent the weekend at the level 1 Hyper Fit USA in Ann Arbor, MICHIGAN. Awesome time. Learned more than I thought possible. Thanks to all the staff and trainers, they truly did an amazing job.

I attended the L1 Cert. this weekend at Crossfit Strong. That was by far one of the best fitness seminars that I have ever attended. I had an excellent staff of coach's who I learned so much from. The test was challenging so I got my figures crossed.

Thanks again to all the Coaches you guys help with so much, helped me to gain a lot more knowledge,and also become a better Crossfitter.

Just got done with Level 1 in Dallas, learned more than I ever thought possible! Have been doing crossfit for a several months and read the handbook over a few times. But the with the trainers there to show me everything in motion and having them talk to us about the principles was seriously motivating. Thanks a lot to all the trainers y'all helped me more than you know, LOVED IT!!

Thank you to all the AWESOME trainers at the Trident CrossFit level 1 Cert. My husband has been doing CrossFit for several years now and has tried to get me "into" it for a long time. A few months ago I started CrossFit on my own. I now have a whole new appreciation for the word intensity! A special thanks to Nicole who took the time to chat with me and give me better direction! I'm taking a rest day tomorrow! Thanks for an incredible weekend!

Completed Level 1 at Trident Crossfit with some amazing trainers. This was my 1st time at any Crossfit box. I learned sooo much and had a blast!! This is a great facility, with great staff. When the trainers are this skilled and passionate at what they do, it really shows and makes learning enjoyable. This is not to be confused with easy, nothing about this weekend was easy!! Thank you Chuck, Mike G, Xmas, Nicole and the rest of those that helped us!!!

Attended the Level 1 cert at Crossfit Strong and it was AMAZING! I learned so much and I'm really hoping that it all stays in my brain! The coaches were great. Even though I've been doing Crossfit for several years now I had so many "lightbulb" moments with their cueing. I think the course would benefit everyone, especially if you had the coaching crew that I had this weekend. I want to say thank you to Joe, Nicole, Cherie, Matt, Zac and Lance. You guys are awesome!

Huge thanks to the amazing Joe, Matt, Zac, Cherie, Nicole, and Lance this weekend in Dallas. You're all amazing individuals who are inspirational, motivational, and sincere in your goal to help others improve. I look forward to learning more for you guys in the near future! You've all got a place to stay if you're ever in Dallas! Now, I'm gonna go find an ice bath and call in sick early to work tomorrow as I probably won't be able to move very many muscles!

25:57 - Started to sub 30" handstand holds after the first couple of RNDs just to keep WOD moving. Not good enough at HSPU to knock out 100 yet! Got both 800M's in the 3:30's though, which I am happy with.

I am a fan of the 800's!!!!!

Had a great weekend completing the Level 1 course at Hyperfit USA in Michigan. I couldn't ask for better coaches Joe, Doug, Jason, Joe, Nadia, and Rudy. You guys made this weekend a blast and I learned a lot. Sorry I couldn't personally say thanks to all the coaches but I had a bit of a drive to make afterwards. Thanks to everyone and it was awesome meeting everyone!

Comment #25 - Posted by: Maria R at April 15, 2012 10:05 PM

@ Bingo,

I read your post yesterday, and I have to say, keep the musings coming. What's great about this forum is, like CrossFit, it is diverse and contains not only kinesthetic knowledge, but theory and shared experience. That's what makes this community great. And like our nation, everyone is entitle to their personal opinion, and the right to express said opinion.

I found your musing regarding the debate whether to work to live, or live to work as particularly applicable to a debate I have in my own life. However, I am of the opinion that in this unpredictable economy many Americans do not have the luxury to make this distinction. However, it is something to strive for in our collective journey.

Your musings are not trite or whinny. Not to those of us who log on to CrossFit.com to gain physical and personal enrichment. Keep them coming. Let the haters hate...ask little bingo what that means.

Ok, Take care brother, looking forward to next Sunday.

Drew

@Samo The last 800m run is just that. You run the same distance as you did before the workout. The couplet refers to the handstand push-ups and the one legged squats.

Comment #52 - Posted by: Nik at April 16, 2012 5:23 AM

Chuck I wish i could pick at your brain you have so much knowledge. Chris your just a beast hands down. Nicole well your spicy haha. Xmas beast mode as well but have a great system for teaching.

Level 1 Course at CrossFit Ethos @ Laguna, Ca.. I have instructed and coached for 25+ years and was amazed to find (at one location) some of the best instructors I have ever had the opportunity to learn from. From the newest instructor to Katie Hogan. Their energy, love for CrossFit and most importantly the people shined through in all the presentations and demos. Thanks to you all and good luck to the friends that I have made and hope to see again! Mike Fournier

Comment #61 - Posted by: David K at April 16, 2012 7:55 AM

Thank you to all the coaches this past weekend for Level 1 at Dallas Strong! I couldn't have asked for a better group of coaches. They kept everything clear and understandable, took the time to assist every one of us and correct our movement mistakes and also explained how to apply that so we could teach others. The whole weekend was positive. All the coaches had great personalities and were so passionate about teaching and educating everyone. My experience was top notch. I am looking forward to applying all my new knowledge to my classes and my own progressions! Thanks again!

I used a 12 inch box as a safety on the pistols. My pistols are pretty bad, so having a box helped on a form. I tried kipping on the HSPUs which went really well.

Buy in - 3:23

Subbed DB shoulder press for HSPU (why did brand X say DB press only for sub?)
Rounds 1-2: 45#
Rounds 3-5: 35#
Round 6-10: 30# (rounds 7-10 push press)

Did bar assisted pistols. I really need to work on my form - felt like I was off balance, had a hard time keeping my weight on the heel, was leaning forward, and butt started to stick out on the last few sets.

Buy out - 3:37

Total time: 33:30

Scaled back to 6 sets.
Right leg pistols ok, left leg sucks - first time trying them (called shoot the duck in hockey practice...)
HSPU's weren't quite as ugly as last time (this is my third time doing them).
Anyway, a good sweat was had by all.

As Rx: 21:40
This one went just as I thought.. the HSPUs ate up most of the time.. the pistols I did at a pretty good clip, and went unbroken with the HSPUs for the first 4 rounds... then started to break them up to 7 +3 for rounds 5,6,&7. For rounds 8&9 I did 6+4.. round 10 was like 5,1,2,2,1... killer last set... I immediately did the run and my shoulders were super stiff until the last 250 meters or so... I then stretched out my shoulders on the solid rings at the playground where I did the WOD... SO much more fun to do these WODs outside... nice weather.. cool breeze.. just go out and have some fun and kick your ass. I was thinking I would have done this under 20.. i was looking for about 19 or under. Maybe next time. I am going to work on the kipping HSPU for when we have super high reps.. normally I think my HSPUs are a strength, but I think after about 50 or 60 they get pretty taxing. I was super strict to have my head gnetly hit the floor.. on some of the middle reps I had my hands a bit wide, but nothing crazt. I do strict HSPUs with no kip. I was really concentrating on keeping a tight midline.. I feel as though that's the trasmision.. if you start to get wobbly, then you're not able totrasfer your push to get your efforts to make you go veritcal.. you start to go horizontal, etc.
Good WOD.. I love this srart and stop with 800 and kill a 10 x couplet inbetween. fun stuff.

I didn't like this. It took two movements that require a great deal of skill to do well and repeated them to exhaustion (for me, I was down to 1-2 rep sets by round 6/7). Doing such a difficult movement over a large number of reps results in 'cheat-reps', teaching body bad muscle memory and risking injury :( I don't think I will do another one of the couplets like this again.

HSPU really slow. Little better w/wider stance & "big hands". Keep abs tight when driving up helps too. Pistols not bad. Pinch shoulders back & big chest at beg of each rep.

Subbed handstand holds for HSPU. Held a 10# plate in my hands for the one-legged squats (balance issue I guess).

Great workout.

36:16 as rx'd with lots of kipping HSPU

Comment #215 - Posted by: zenoperegrinus at May 27, 2012 1:34 AM

As rx'd, 24:32.

Strict HSPUs. Most total HSPUs in one WOD - felt good that I was able to complete this, even though it was on the slow side. I broke the HSPUs into 2 sets (usually 6-4) in rounds 2-7; in rounds 8-10, I broke them into 3 sets (usually 5-3-2). Since I was slow through the work, I wasn't too gassed, and thus felt strong on the last 800m run - came in right at 3:00.
