@john woods- I got kicked out of an la fitness a month ago for literally the same exact thing! My boyfriend and I were workin out together and he told me "good job" an the manager kicked us out!

Comment #7 - Posted by: Steph at January 11, 2013 6:22 PM

Back from another Rest Day and ready to rock, right? Just in time for another “Girl”. Here comes Karen! “Karen” is a task specific, mono-structural WOD. We are given the work to be done and asked to do it as fast as possible, and the task consists of a single exercise.

150 Wall Ball Shots (WB) with a 20# Wall Ball and a 10’ target. We’ve done the WB thing a couple of times already this month. Hold the WB on your upper chest with both hands in a “push” position. Do a front squat making sure that the crease of your hips goes lower than your knees. Push yourself up from the bottom and at the top of the front squat throw the WB so that it hits a target that is 10 feet from the ground (not 10’ above you). Catch the WB on the way down and go right into the next WB shot.

Do 150 of these. Yup, you heard that right…150. Break up the reps any way you wish, or more realistically any way you have to. A typical women’s weight is 14# with a target of 8’. How shall we scale these? All newcomers, men or women, should drop the weight down, men to 14# and women to 10#. How are you feeling? Recovering OK? Not so good? Scale the reps to 100 or 75. Good? Cool. Give 150 a try. Good times will be much lower than 10:00. No matter what you do let’s have a 15:00 time cap on this one for Newbies, OK?

I’ve been tring to keep up with the Main Page programming this month and I don’t know about you, but I’m having a blast! This is some good, classic CrossFit going on here. If you can’t like CrossFit this month…man…

Get ready to rock with “Karen”! 3-2-1…GO.

Those of you completing this under 7 minutes with full squats and 10' throws, you are awesome! I didn't hurt until I was done with the WOD but I was out of air about half way through. Maybe I put too much effort into it in the beginning. Throwing, receiving, squatting doesn't really leave a rest place in the movement or a way to slow it down...

First time handling 'Karen' and dedicated to the mother in the law of the same name who is staying with us (and just as gnarly)

Broke into 6 sets of 25 and used a 9kg slam ball.
Short step away between sets to reset the head and avoid hitting the wall.

So today we repeated the 7 minutes of burpees. Not a good day for either of us; I don't know whether we were tired this morning or whether it is just the last 6 days of crossfit exercises nonstop...

Comment #132 - Posted by: Stephan at January 13, 2013 10:57 AM

44/m/176cm/73kg

Due to low ceilings at home and nasty conditions outside I decided to modify this one to:

150 reps med ball clean and thrust.

10:09 unbroken

Obviously easier than wall ball shots because although unbroken it took me longer than my PR on Karen (8:35).
The distance the med ball travels should be about the same on both exercises and the same should be true for the amount of work that needs to be done.
I guess the wall ball shots are faster and require more explosiveness and precision at the same time which makes them more tiring.
I'll try Karen again as soon as the weather improves.

Comment #133 - Posted by: Memuc at January 13, 2013 11:41 AM

no WB setup, thrusters with 45 lb bar (not even close to the real thing), was thinking 75 would be appropriate but did that in 3:48?, so I did another 25, 4:58 (should've kept going though), not all the way down due to continued poor flexibility s/p broken ankle
