So, how did the “Flipped Fifty” go? Were you faster or slower than the “Filthy Fifty”? I’m gonna get it today; I’ll report back later.

This has been a very cool month. Seriously, some really great stuff for us to work with, and some absolutely classic CrossFit. You just can’t get a better example of “constantly varied”. Kudos to the wizards at HQ who are doing the programming.

“Gwen”, a “Girl” who makes rather infrequent visits here. This one is kinda like some of our other benchmarks, but then again it’s kinda not. The rep scheme is 15-12-9, but it’s NOT for time. You can rest as much as you need between rounds, and it is not necessary to time the rounds. Sarah rested 6 minutes then 8 minutes. Record the weight you used.

One movement or exercise, Clean and Jerk, but this is really different from “Grace” for example. It’s more like “The Bear” (look it up). You get to choose the weight, and you are to use the same weight for all three rounds. Once you start a round you must NOT PAUSE when the bar is on the ground. Touch-and-go only. If you must rest, re-set your grip, whatever, you need to do it before the weights hit the deck. Any of this can be done in the front rack position, or bent over with the bar resting on your thighs.

If you stop, dump the bar, or let go at the bottom it is a “foul” and stops the round. What, exactly, does that mean? Unlike some of the CrossFit Endurance WOD’s in which a foul triggers a penalty, here I think it means you rest and then start that round over.

Sounds tough, huh? What the heck should we choose for the weight? That’s tough, too. Have you ever done “Grace”, 30 C&J with 135lbs.? How did that go? What’s your 1-rep max Clean & Jerk? No idea? Me either, frankly. Here’s how I’m gonna approach it. My 1RM C&J is 165lbs. I would do “Grace” with 115lbs dumping every one. I’d like to try this with ~50% of my 1RM, maybe something between 85 and 95lbs. depending on how I feel when I warm it up.

No history with this movement whatsoever? That’s very likely if you are a Newbie. Watch the video. Think about how that athletes were coached. Practice the movement. Play around with different weights. Err on the lighter side when you choose your load for the WOD. “That was the right weight” must have felt really good for Sarah to say! Take your time; since there’s no clock this is a great opportunity to drill the movement.

I’m really enjoying this month, really liking not only the variety but also the details, the nuance, the challenge. The surprise each day’s WOD brings. The subtle differences between the really famous WOD’s we’ve done and stuff like “Gwen”. There’s a definite intellectual attraction to CrossFit, a well that you can choose to dip into as deeply as you’d like. A WOD like “Gwen” is a great opportunity to discuss all kinds of CrossFitty stuff.

“Gwen”, a rare Girl. Nice! 3-2-1…Go.

Great demo vid! Love the tips on how to choose the right weight. This will be humbling.

Comment #6 - Posted by: Playoff Beard at January 28, 2013 5:57 PM

Hey CrossFit family, Ijoined 3 months and 18 days ago- absolutely love it; and CrossFit has proved to have changed my lifestyle around... Question for all: I'm a M/29/227lb and I was wondering if weight, and height could have anything to do with the way my time for some of these WOD's are timed- for example, "Reverse Filthy Fifty", I scaled the reps for each to 30 and finished in 18:23 where I see a lot of people my age who are lighter in weight do it Rx'd at 18:37..... So, would my wight or hight effect my performance as for timing wise???? I'm a smart guy, but I also see guys even heavier than me just kill some WOD's and I'm trying to see where my weaknesses is compared to what's normal.

Comment #7 - Posted by: Drama7 at January 28, 2013 6:33 PM

What happens on a foul call? If I pick a weight too heavy and have to readjust - is it WOD over? I assume I can regrip in the air, correct?

Comment #8 - Posted by: Tony at January 28, 2013 7:22 PM

#4 Drama7 that's nothing to worry about. Some of these guys have been doing at for years, and their weight might also be more lean weight. To do any workout Rx'd as a rule you should be able to do about twice the weight listed as a 1RM. The goal for most workouts is to rest as little as you can to keep the intensity high while still maintaining good form.

BUT...Remember always Good Mechanics keeping Consistency before intensity. So if your mechanics and consistency are not their either don't go heavier to Rx'D with a high intensity. 3 months is really a short period of doing CrossFit, don't rush it--stay focused and keep grinding.

Comment #9 - Posted by: ckatech at January 28, 2013 7:35 PM

I thought it said even a regrip off the floor is a foul - did Sarah technically foul out her first set?

Comment #10 - Posted by: Micah at January 28, 2013 7:37 PM

To follow up I assume a regrip is a proper release and hands come off the bar, so minor adjustments are doable?

Comment #11 - Posted by: Micah at January 28, 2013 7:39 PM

So, clean and jerk means power clean & push jerk, not real clean and real jerk? Just asking, not a hater I promise!

Comment #12 - Posted by: Glenn at January 28, 2013 7:39 PM

@ ckatech- Thank you for the advice; it really means a lot. I defiantly have my whole life of exercising (CrossFit) and intend to take my time, keep that motivation, and stay focus within. Hopefully one day i'll be able to take it to another level. Once again, thank you for your advice. Drama7

Comment #14 - Posted by: Shane G 6'3"/200/29 at January 28, 2013 7:44 PM

#11: Power Cleans are usually more difficult to do with a higher weight (your max power clean is less than your max clean and jerk) so if you can power clean your chosen weight then it is OK. Same with the Power/Push Jerk. Whether Sarah could have done more weight and done full cleans and split jerks is another story.

Comment #15 - Posted by: Spencer at January 28, 2013 7:46 PM

95 as rx'd...wimpy would like to try it again...did it all unbroken as rx'd...getting over an awesome month long cold been out of it trying to get back

Comment #17 - Posted by: bretty72 at January 29, 2013 12:46 AM

Are we allowed to dump the weight on the last set like in the demo or should we bring it down controlled?

Comment #18 - Posted by: Bob at January 29, 2013 1:08 AM

Went with body weight at 65 kg, and got through the 15, but couldn't go any further than 9 on the second round. I didn't have time or energy to wait, recover and start over, so I'll try again tomorrow with 63 kg.

Don't think I could have gone any heavier. Grip was the major issue here, had to rest 7 and 10 minutes to get forearms somewhat relaxed.

All power cleans, no squats.

Yup, I know we were supposed to use the same weight, but didn't know exactly what my 1RM was. Guessed it was ~145 so started at 75 and found it wasn't hard enough. Last set was noticeably harder. Next time I'll try 105 for all.

Much respect to Sarah for throwing 145 around in the video! Watching the WOD ahead of time was key to knowing what to expect as far as the "rules" of the WOD.

fouled every round (2,2,1), I wasn't able to regrip in the front rack position or bent over with it on my thighs. Also didn't know that a foul meant to that you have to restart so I just shook out my arms and continued... oh well it was still a workout!

Comment #39 - Posted by: Hatch at January 29, 2013 7:55 AM

Scaled per Bingo's advice:

105#

Round 1: 2 fouls (forgot the rule and paused on floor to adjust grip)
5 minutes rest
Round 2: 0 fouls
5 minutes rest
Round 3: 0 fouls

Grip was the biggest challenge, but the weight I chose was a tad light. Probably should have gone with 115#. Next time...

People with comparable stats: what weight should I use? I really want to do this one right....

Comment #44 - Posted by: Kyle at January 29, 2013 8:22 AM

I have been doing CrossFit for about a year now. I was talking to one of the guys who got me started on CrossFit yesterday, and it helped me realize how much of a difference CrossFit has made in my life. When I started, I weighed 174. Now I'm tippin the scales at 192. My bench has gone from 275 to 320, deadlift from 375 to 500, and power clean from 205 to 230. My speed has improved, along with muscle endurance (which is exactly what one of CrossFit's goals is, go figure lol). I'm a police officer when I'm not CrossFitting, and everyday I see instances of how doing CrossFit has benefited me in my work. I just want to extend a thank you to those who manage the website and post the workouts, etc. It's true that doing CrossFit is not just a workout program, it's a lifestyle.

Comment #45 - Posted by: Cullen at January 29, 2013 8:22 AM

I faulted/rested in every set and basically did 6 mini-sets of 8-7-6-6-5-4 reps.

85#

As is typical, it was a harder WOD than I thought it'd be.

Comment #46 - Posted by: mom to five at January 29, 2013 8:30 AM

95#. Definitely should have used 115#. Getting back into crossfit feels good. Really good.

Comment #47 - Posted by: BJ at January 29, 2013 8:40 AM

#120 - no faults

As has been posted, this is waaaaay harder than it looks. Grip is so key.

Didnt matter where I tried to rest, overhead,front rack,hips,....it all sucked.

First time doing C&Js. Practiced with bar then 5 reps @ 135. Felt dead after just 5 so did gwen @ 95. Looking forward to increasing load with more practice.

Comment #53 - Posted by: Andre Crews at January 29, 2013 9:19 AM

So, someone had a horrible idea. Didn't have a chance to do the "Reverse Fifty" yesterday, so we did that to warm-up for todays C&J's.
35:35 Fifty time.
95/115/115 for C&J
The worst part - the 95 lbs was really easy for that first set, so when I tried 135 for the second set and only got 6 the RESET killed me! Push yourself, but my advice - FINISH YOUR SETS!

Had a great coach to help me keep my clean form... CLEAN. Cues: "weight in the heels, use your hips, keep the weight back!!!" Help your partners reach new heights by taking interest in their well-being, not just your own.

Hey guys. Gonna be moving with my family to a new house and going to start my own garage gym. My big project I want to tackle is a home made Dip PU bar combo. Anybody out there with the smarts or knowledge how to do the construction? Or know where to go to find it. I did check the FAQ before posting and if I missed it then I apologize. Thanks guys.

Comment #56 - Posted by: Nick at January 29, 2013 9:32 AM

105#. very hard :)
comment to other newbies. for 3 months I have been working on muscle ups. watching videos for tips. reading stuff etc. I have managed 2 total in 30+ attempts. I have done plenty with a jump to assist. focused like crazy on getting false grip secured, pulling to sternum, keeping elbows in etc. I am not lacking strength (30+ dips, 20 pullups). Today after the workout when I was completely beat I decided to try again and did 3 in a row (didn't try more). The difference was I focused on my abs. as I was doing my pullup I tried to do the biggest sit up I could do and all of a sudden it become relatively easy to do a muscle up. before I was trying to lean through but focusing on getting my head and shoulders over the rings not focusing on my abs. It worked for me, maybe it will help someone else. good luck and thanks.

95# for all reps
I could have done about 10 - 15# more, but I am new and needed a baseline and 95 was suggested since my one rep max was around 165 - 170. I was more shocked at the strain it put on my grip than anything else. My forearms burned after the first 15 reps then continued to burn throughout the rest of the sets.

Dropped to 165 and redid WOD. First round was BRUTAL. Second round I was able to speed through 8 reps and struggled with last 4. Last round I sprinted all 9 fast. Made me realize that I paced 185 to slow and that was probably why my gripped died.

115# as RX'ed (in other words no fouls)

Sounds like a really bad excuse, but a plate got stuck on the dumbbell when I used it as a kettlebell for yesterday's Flipped Fifty and I only have 135 lbs worth of metal plates so I couldn't try a heavier load. I think where other people (who have access to enough plates to find out their 1 RM) find this humbling, I would've loved to find out if I can already beat Gwen with all the weights I have. And how I compare, what PR I could shoot for if I had the equipment.

Tony is the very first Crossfit "celebrity" I ever met when I went to watch the 08' Games in Aromas. In case you don't know, he's a real life bad-ass and all around cool guy. I still think of his advice every time I go to an ATM machine!

99# (45kg) RX'ed 0 fouls

first time since starting Crossfit that I've felt even close to hanging with the big boys! Dabbled around here and there with random WOD's since September but never truly committed to it until the beginning of January. Since then I've seen so many strength gains, and size gains too! my PR's for all the lifts have gone through the roof compared to what I held previously.

After this WOD (plus rest) I attempted to beat my C&J PR, managed to add an extra 10kg! (75kg / 165#).

The hook grip definitely helped me on this one!

Did the workout at 135# with no fouls. Sarah Hopping, your technique and power are awesome. Never done a C&J workout before and this had me gassed. Loved it cause I really had to focus on technique as I got tired. The posterior chain is feeling tingly too! LOL.

Hey CrossFit family, Ijoined 3 months and 18 days ago- absolutely love it; and CrossFit has proved to have changed my lifestyle around... Question for all: I'm a M/29/227lb and I was wondering if weight, and height could have anything to do with the way my time for some of these WOD's are timed- for example, "Reverse Filthy Fifty", I scaled the reps for each to 30 and finished in 18:23 where I see a lot of people my age who are lighter in weight do it Rx'd at 18:37..... So, would my wight or hight effect my performance as for timing wise???? I'm a smart guy, but I also see guys even heavier than me just kill some WOD's and I'm trying to see where my weaknesses is compared to what's normal.

115lbs

Used the same weight as last time, but went through the workout much quicker. Last set of 9 was fast with no pauses at all except for a quick breath in the front rack position each rep. The first two sets each had one episode of resting with the bar on my thighs. Only took 2-3 minutes rest between sets.

Took the time to rest on my quads and reset the hook grip for each rep. Quads are bruised to hell, but I doubt my forearms would've held up if I hadn't done that. Killer workout. Props to Sarah Hopping

M/ 39/ 135 lbs/ 5'-6"
115 lbs for 15 reps
125 lbs for the other 2 rounds

(My grip slipped out as I was racking the weight on rep 10, because the bar was not spinning and the bar slammed down from about my eye level down onto my knees... OUCH!!!
I was o.k. a couple seconds later I finished the 15 set.. I was going to be ok to finish the set, but the grip slipped out...
This was ALL about the grip for me. I was fine power jerking the weights up to my shoulders, but the grip was fading at the end of each set for sure.
I took a break at about 9 reps at mid thigh (bent over) to regrip the last 3 reps of the 12 set... would have been doing that probably at around rep 12 or so with the first set as well. Last round I did that for the last 2 reps as well.

I am still a bit sick so I tried to stay a bit lower in weight and not get over taxed.
Good workout but the grip for me was totally the part of my body that I needed to let recooperate between rounds.
Stretched out and took a very fast steam before going home.

Thought would feel the burn sooner so started:
95# x 15, wasn't heavy so moved up
115# x 12
115# x 9
no fouls, did the bent over hold bought half way thru each

No fouls but really battled mentally not to put the bar down.

Forearms were flogged. Great workout!

165# with the following caveat

15--unbroken--grip tiring, lungs tiring
12--foul at 7 reps--grip fail, did remaining 5 reps
9---unbroken--legs trembling, shoulders fatiguing and forearms wanting to burst.

This one went surprisingly well. After many years of rock climbing I'm used to hang on with pumped and burning forearms. Using the hook grip almost feels like cheating. Next time I'll use 55kg.

My gym only has hex shaped plates, totally screws up the touch-the-floor rhythm. Had to do all sets broken as a result. Really focused on good form and explosiveness.

Quick WU. Slept in after Super bowl. Dynamic stretching. Started w/175. No way. Got 5. Changed to 155. Then maybe to 14. 2nd round 6+4+2. 5+4. Hamstring still hurting so that hurt tech. Tried to rest w/bar at hip crease resting on thigh after every rep on last half of second round and all of third. Keep knees out and use lats to pull bar back to thighs. Need good shrug.

15-12-9 clean & jerk

95 lbs
12-3: plate was sliding off right side due to rt side weakness. Had to set down to reposition plate & add clamps.

7-3-2: set bar down, also regripped w/ bar on thighs.

9: unbroken. Much better form--used my legs more to get a better jump to bring it to push position & to get it overhead.

Expect my next Gwen to go much better with same weight--no fouls!
