Haven't got the Kip down yet but I'll fight through 160 strict pullups for the hero

Comment #4 - Posted by: Mic at August 8, 2012 5:24 PM

Great WOD and RIP Master Sergeant.
One another note, great WOD example video, however many of the Kips shown in this video are poor. Chins coming nearly 2-3" short of the bar. I know fatigue sets in (trust me), but this is one of the most talked about topics in our community today. Even in the games there were a number of athletes I noticed having poor form on the kips. I'm not taking away anything from the athletes in this video, but it can be very frustrating sometimes. Great video and WOD, thanks.

I'm new to crossfit. I'm having a hard time grasping why kipping pull ups are done instead of strict pull ups. I'm not being critical just wondering. Thanks

Comment #13 - Posted by: Tammy Usie at August 8, 2012 7:28 PM

Kipping are done for a few reasons for certain workouts (not all).
1) speed that translates to other movements
2) In reality it can be more work in the metcon sense.
3) CrossFit does not solely do Kipping Pull-ups, but when the goal is keeping intensity high doing only strict pull-ups will take your intensity down too much taking away from the purpose
4) As mentioned in "3)" a CrossFit program correctly built will sometimes focus on the more strength building strict pull-ups with different methods via weight, cadence (negative-work), and with either a dynamic or maximal effort.

Comment #14 - Posted by: ckatech at August 8, 2012 7:36 PM

Jason kipping pullups are a more natural and exposive movement. They allow you to do more work in a shorter time, i.e. give two athletes 30 seconds to do as many pullups as possible, one kips the other does not, at the end the kipper completes 25 and the strict athlete does 12. Assuming they are identical athletes the kipper has moved more weight over a given period of time, ie more work. Strict pullups are a strength movement where the kip is a gymnastic movement. They both have their place, one is not necessarily better. As crossfitters we want to be efficent and fast, hence the kipping pullups being our go to pullups.

Comment #18 - Posted by: Whit at August 8, 2012 8:03 PM

Kipping pull-ups work more muscle groups (Abs, back shoulders arms back, hip etc). It's a full body workout. Strict pul-ups are more of an isolation technique like an arm curl. Using your entire body, irregardless of "targeted muscles" is a major tenant of Crossfit. This paradigm is also why why we dont use Nautilus machines or smith machines or leg press machines, but we do do back squats, cleans, snatches and dead lifts. It's because those movements along with the kipping pull-up do more to improve work capacity precisely because they work multiple muscle groups and work them hard. Also I struggled with strict pull ups for years never seeming to improve much. Kipping pull-ups on the other hand did more to improve my strict pull-ups then anything. Now I can perform 15 strict L-Pull-ups without coming off the bar 20 or more regular stricts and 40+ kipping pull-ups. Also my arm muscles may be tight after 20 strict pull-ups, but my whole body is exhausted after 40 kipping. It empirically undeniable which style of pull-up offers a better workout. It terms of calories used, muscles employed, work completed and improving work capacity, kipping pull-ups win on every count.

I ONLY did 150 pushups in workout I did today - 10 rounds of 100m sprint, 15 pushups, 1 min rest between rounds ...

Hey guys.

I'm just starting out in the world of crossfit. I can't afford to join a box, trying to save up, but I wanted to start doing some of the workouts.

I'm very out of shape, can't do one Kip and can only do 10 pushups.

I can do the running

Any thoughts on replacement exercises for this? Something like Lat pull downs and barbell bench?

Comment #24 - Posted by: Jon at August 8, 2012 9:44 PM

Time - 46:50 minutes. Used TRX for pull ups.

I am not much of a supporter of an American expansion of democracy into third world countries. Furthermore, I did not care about scrifices these soldiers have done, because it does not affect me at all.

However, while I was doing today's WOD, it occured to me that I might not share believes for which these young men have died for, but I still have to respect them for their bravery and commitment to their duty.

Furthermore, when I was doing my third round, I have asked myself, if a person like Jared was prepared to sacrifice his life (and he did) for his believes and his duty. Then perhaps, my opinion is wrong about this subject, because I am not prepared to sacrifice my life for my believes.

My thoughts are with heroe's family.

Vas, curious what angle you use for TRX pull-ups?

I was going to do assisted pull-ups YET AGAIN, but I think TRX might be a great sub.

Just getting back into running, so I can't do 800 fast.

Better to do slow 800s or sub with stair climber?

Comment #28 - Posted by: Brynn at August 9, 2012 1:10 AM

Brynn,
I would say at an angle of 30-35 degrees...

Going to be sore fro that one...Thanks SGT! had to sub 40# shoulder press for pull ups,bar doesn't fit door frame:), but everything else as rx'd.
This was a great Hero workout. We lost 2 very close friends last yr when my husband was in Afghanistan. One a Marine who served with my brother in law and one an Army SPC who served with my husband. Jared, Matt, Elm...your sacrifices will never be forgotten. Your strength in the fight gave me strength to push through to the end. Much love!!!

Comment #37 - Posted by: Jocelyn Pawlicki at August 9, 2012 5:31 AM

I have some general questions about the method in the video. Plus, mass amounts of pushups in a WOD have always been my nemesis.

First off, I'd like to start by saying I'm not knocking the guys that did the workout. I'm just questioning whether or not sacrificing full ROM form is better if you are trying to blast through it.

If I did this with regular kipping pullups and chest to ground pullups it would take me around 2 hours. It seemed like the guys in the video were going about 3 inches shy of chest to ground.

My question is, would it be better to not do the full range of motion in the pushups in order to get through them or scale say to 50 and do full chest to ground? Granted, even scaled it would take me over an hour.

I'm not a trainer or anything but something that has helped me out a lot on kipping pullups is using a band. It's helped me get the "timing" down. Just a suggestion.

Comment #46 - Posted by: Henny at August 9, 2012 6:41 AM

First ever CROSSFIT workout. To me 58 min and 22 secs but I finished every rep. Hard as crap. Definitely got me out of my comfort zone. @ 47 I needed something new in my workouts and life. No CROSSFIT gym in my town though sounds like an opportunity for me.

Started the first 800m run with a 94 cadence, but couldn't even hold 90 on the last run.
Pull-ups in 2 or 3 sets, 30 consecutive butterfly pull-ups in the last round.
To manage the push-ups, make the best use of muscle elasticity. Do the reps as fast as possible and rest as soon as you as you start slowing down. Never go to failure.

Comment #72 - Posted by: Luke Davidson at August 9, 2012 9:25 AM

HELP! First off RIP Jared, thank you for your service. Ok, so I'm a bit behind, and did the WOD from last Friday. I just put a rope up at my house, so this was the first workout I did actually doing rope ascents, or at least trying. Was very humbling! The biggest thing I had trouble with was keeping my feet hooked at the bottom, so I felt like I was relying more on upper body strength and quite frankly I don't have enough! Is there a trick to keeping your feet anchored at the bottom to use them to scale up the rope?? Also, the rope I used was 3" circumference, so just under 1" diameter. Gotta love finding a practical use for that high school Geometry! Am I just spinning my wheels trying to do this if I don't get a thick enough rope?? Thanks for the help guys, I need it on this one!

30 Pullups
40 Pushups
(Then back up the three levels of stairs for the run again)
Time: 26:43


It was odd, doing a workout with my name, especially a hero WOD. I always thought it was kind of cheesy, what everyone says about htinking about the Hero during the WOD and such, but on the third round, the run, I was getting stitches in my side and was going to stop, but then thought a soldier on a march, carrying a friend, running to a friend, towards the enemy, from an enemy, they wouldn't stop. I won't either.

Cheers all.

My time was 29:05 and I did all 4 rounds adhering to the exact workout. This was my first time ever trying it and its my second cross fit workout i've ever done. Is that time pretty good for being outta shape?

Comment #98 - Posted by: Nate Wierzbicki at August 9, 2012 12:53 PM

Wow. I learned a valuable lesson on this one. I'm new to crossfit. Lifted weights for years and consider my self strong. This workout ate my lunch! Did one round with 40you strict pull ups and 70 push ups. Second 800m killed me. I was done after that. I will definitely scale down next time and work my way up. Strong is only half the fight. Gotta get my cardio up. Not discouraged thou. Excited about a new challenge.

4 rounds: 56:00

Used the first round as a warm up; took it easy.

Ran on a treadmill
Assisted pull-ups
Mixed in a few knee push-ups

All in all, probably my favorite WOD so far after 6 weeks of crossfit. This was a beast, and I loved it.

Only complaint: it was hard to run during the last 800 round when I was choking back tears thinking about Master Sergeant Van Aalst's widow.

RIP, Master Sergeant. Thank you for your service.

Question - if I need to scale something (and let's use pullups as the example), is it better to scale to something else I can do 40 of (e.g., lat pulldowns at a moderate weight), or is it better to scale back reps of pullups?

Thanks for any insight.

I'm new to crossfit myself but not new to strength training in general. I'd say if you have to scale, scale back on the skill versus using a substitute exercise (unless it's due to an injury.)

The lat pull-down and the pull-up work the same muscle groups but are very different in practice, in my opinion. Pull-ups are pretty unique and doing lat pull downs might get you stronger in the right places but won't really help you do more pull-ups.

Try elastic bands, assisted pull-up machines (I do a max set of 35 strict pull-ups but I STILL use this machine), jumping pull-ups, pull-up negatives, etc.

Of course this depends on the type of exercise. Most of the squats are similar enough and work the same muscle groups so doing most any squat will help you back squat more.

You can find more scaling variations from a crossfit trainer or here: http://www.crossfitbrandx.com/index.php/forums

Last round was not pleasant. Transitions were slow with a set of stairs between the run on the treadmill and the PU bar.

CFWU-3. No uppper body 3rd. Monkey touches instead of PU 2nd. Superman. Burgener. DU.
45:09 @ Clubworx
1st lap on runs too slow. Decent job w/mid foot strike once I remembered. Good use of arms. PU not bad. Sets of 10 in later rounds. Pushups tough. Only sets of 5 after 1st 10. Tried to use upper back instead of relying on tri's.

Comment #258 - Posted by: jrm at September 1, 2012 7:31 PM

33:08 26.01.01

scaled this due to shoulder injury. been on a bit of a downward spiral since injuring my shoulder just before Christmas. haven't been able to get it checked yet and keep trying to train through it. realized it's not going to work. did a little research on crossfit blogs. seems a common injury. hoping to see physio this week.

800m
40 pullups lowering from head high smith m/c bar to floor. almost one handed using weak arm for support to get ROM.
40 push ups at 45o again almost one handed.

Did all rounds of 800m but just 3 rounds of pull ups/push ups.
