Ouch. Wish I didn't run so much yesterday. Oh well!

Comment #1 - Posted by: Max M at April 20, 2012 5:19 PM

Why program 10 sets if they aren't all work sets. Warm-ups aren't part of the workout. How about 2,2,2,2,2 with necessary warm-up sets?

Comment #2 - Posted by: Anon at April 20, 2012 5:41 PM

If you are able to compare this to 5 and a half years ago I hope you've made some progress!

Comment #3 - Posted by: ScooteR at April 20, 2012 5:54 PM

@ Anon - b/c this is a dynamic day ala Westside Barbell. Speed day, 10x2 on the minute.

Do your homework.

Comment #4 - Posted by: Mel/39m/5'10"/175 at April 20, 2012 5:55 PM

Very poor form on the squats done in that video. Next time lower the weight and try to let your hip crease pass below the knee. When you compromise full range of motion you compromise its functionality.

Comment #5 - Posted by: Billy G at April 20, 2012 5:56 PM

Mel, if you're going to do Westside Barbell training, then do Westside Barbell training, not some half-baked mash-up. Speed squat days once in a blue moon is not productive. Besides, the guy in the video, posted by the very people who programmed the workout, mind you, aren't doing speed squats by the end. They're doing heavy doubles...or maybe they didn't do their homework.

Billy, he's a powerlifter. The squats are fine. I squatted like that for years and then tried high-bar ass-to-ankles and got over 90% of my best low-bar...Seems functional to me.

Hmmm I dunno about this. If an individuals 1RM back squat isn't up to par, they really have no business doing dynamic effort work. You need a good strength basis before taking it on.

ScooteR,
Some of came into CrossFit as pretty good squatters. ;-)

Comment #13 - Posted by: Tabitha at April 20, 2012 7:01 PM

How long should I rest in between reps?

Comment #14 - Posted by: Abraham at April 20, 2012 7:06 PM

Hip crease is supposed to go below the knee for the full benefit of the squat, shortening this does not work the intended muscles a squat is built for. The only squat that was poor was the one where he lost midline, and that's when he lowered the weight and focused on form.

This could be a dynamic day, or this could be a 2 rep max day. If you are solely following CrossFit mainsite programming doing a dynamic day randomly will not give the full benefit of Louie Simmons conjugate method.

Comment #15 - Posted by: ckatech at April 20, 2012 7:31 PM

@Lenni

Don't use a smith machine! They force your spine and knees into unnatural movements. Weigh more dangerous than free weights.

If you don't have a rack then you're better off not going as heavy. Get creative. Work on your squat cleans, or check out "the Bear"

Comment #16 - Posted by: Chris at April 20, 2012 8:14 PM

Don't use a smith machine, learn how to squat properly and safely. Smith machine for most does not allow proper squat mechanics.

Time between sets depends on how you approach the WOD. If working up to your heaviest double, probably 2-5 minutes between sets.

If you are working it dynamically, like Westside, then 30-60 seconds between sets, but loads should be between 50-70% of your 1RM, preferably with band or chains added in.

Some of the squats in the vid might have been a tad high, but there wasn't a definitive side angle. Regardless, they worked hard.

Comment #17 - Posted by: RFabsik at April 20, 2012 8:15 PM

@Mel
No it's not a dynamic effort workout for people who follow just the mainsite programming. It's a waste of time for these people.
By the way what on earth is the point of comparing this workout to one done more than 5 years ago?! Are you serious??

Comment #18 - Posted by: Drew at April 20, 2012 8:36 PM

At what weight? Is this one you keep at the same or add to it everytime to get a max set of 2 in the end?

Comment #19 - Posted by: Jason at April 20, 2012 11:02 PM

Seriously, to those who keep bantering. If you guys spent more time working out and less time arguing you might have something useful to share. Get a job, a room, or private chat...just get off of the comment thread.

CE- by posting that comment you did exctly what you are telling others not to. This is a comments section where people put their two sense in, if you can't handle it don't read the posts. Btw- what does getting a job have to do with anything?

Anon- some of the squats in the beginning of the video are fine but most are not. In CrossFit the standard is always hip crease below the knee. The form in the videos that make it to the main page should always be up to par because most newbies use them as a guide for workout.

Comment #37 - Posted by: KA at April 21, 2012 9:41 AM

Don't have squat racks or heavy weight. Subbed "the bear" as mentioned by #16 but only 3 rounds of 7sets. Then I worked on various form and flexibility exercises, especially involving the front rack position. Mostly 1-2 sets of 5 with light weights. Since I'm new I've still got a lot to learn about form.

Comment #38 - Posted by: Freddie at April 21, 2012 9:44 AM

Re: Sawyer #26

I was 16 last time this workout came up (click compare to and search Chris S.) However, I had a coach (brian t) watching me every rep. I would suggest having someone that knows what they are doing to watch and give feedback.

Set my timer at 70 seconds to have about a minute rest between sets. Focused on explosive hip drive, but rep two was always rather slow.

Legs were still a bit tight from "Frun" the other day, but servicable none the less.

All reps x2 except for 410 single.
225, 275, 295, 315, 335, 355, 375, 400, 410-1, 375

Should have ramped up faster as 410 would have been there for the duece, but I didn't want to freak out my spotters (casual gym mates), so I jammed and just did the single.

Loved this workout.

CFWU-2. At Triangle. Hurrying through WU to get both WODs in before coaching. Did rope climb & pushup metcon after this.

Sets 1-9 were high bar. Set 10 low bar. Quite a difference. Forgot how much harder high bar is.

Whew, that was a lot of heavy doubles. With this much volume, I felt pretty good that I was able to get 335x2. The last couple sets at 315 were hard too - I was striving for really good depth. Tried to do a lot of mobility in between sets - flexion/internal rotation of the hip, ankle dorsiflexion, anterior hip flexors, etc. Seemed to help, but hips were tired afterward and a little sore today.

Did this one in my cramped apartment in Seoul, Korea. Didn't want to fail on a set. Guess I could have gone a fair bit more.

+ 5x5 pull ups + 15x5 press ups

First day back after taking a month off. Wanted to work back in slowly. Squats were only about 80% of max at 100k. Legs felt sore towrds end. Did pull ups after each of first 5 rounds and press ups after each of last 5 rounds. Good to be back.
