WOD Demo with Cara Hipskind and Kayla Baumgardner - video [wmv] [mov] [HD mov]

Wow…just WOW! “Helen” and “Fran” to open the month, and now “Gwen” and “Amanda” to close it out. I’ve been at this Newbie Chronicle thing for a few years now and it’s always fun. But I gotta tell ya, this January has just been a blast. What a way to start your CrossFit adventure. WOW!

“Amanda” is a tribute WOD, a bit of a hybrid between a typical “Girl” and a “Hero”. It was introduced by Co-Director of Training/Co-Director of the CrossFit Games Dave Castro at the 2010 Games. Now I would typically tell you that this is a really good excuse to learn more about the “compare to” link, to click back…and back…and back, but this is a really cool CrossFit story so I’ve done the legwork for you:

http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/AmandaMillerTribute2010Games.mov

I really love that!

To finish out the month for all of the New Year’s Resolutionaries we have yet another classic CrossFit couplet, a task-specific WOD with two very technical, very difficult exercises, Muscle-Ups (MU) and Snatch, for time. Doing these fast. Hit “Start” then 9 MU -> 9 Snatch -> 7 MU -> 7 Snatch -> 5 MU -> 5 Snatch -> hit “Stop”.

CrossFit was created by a gymnast, a rings guy. The MU is a very basic gymnastic movement, one that is so basic that it doesn’t even have a rating. If’n yer not a gymnast, though, the MU is really flippin’ hard. Your first MU is a signature CrossFit moment worthy of a video, a FB post, and a shout-out from your Box. I really wish I could find the video of Col. Dan’s first MU, the one with his head thrust through the drop ceiling. Epic.

A MU assumes rings. One MU on the rings = one MU on a bar, but if you have rings you should try it that way. Search “Exercises and Demos” for MU progressions and scales. Go to Brand X and search their video archive. Grab the rings with the “false grip”, pull yourself rapidly (violently) up rolling over your wrists into a ring dip position, and lock out the dip. Scaling would include a jumping MU, or doing the MU with your legs on the ground, or even starting from a sitting position. Feel free to kip like a motherf…um, like crazy. The official sub is 4 Pull-ups and 4 Bar Dips for each MU. I’ve given some thought to this sub thing: how about 2 ring Pull-ups and 2 Ring Dips for each MU if you want to use your rings?

Snatch 135lbs. That’s heavy. For almost everyone. With the bar on the ground and your feet shoulder width apart, hands gripping wiiiide, lift the weight overhead in one continuous movement without a pause anywhere. Muscle, power, or full squat snatch, doesn’t matter. For a snatch you just have to get it up (oh yeah). Did you get your first snatch this month (badabing)? 135 is a ridiculous number. Think about what you used on 130101 for the power snatch and use a little bit more than that.

And there you have it! Another January in the books, another group of Newbies joining the ranks of CrossFit Nation. If you are new I hope that these posts have been helpful. Remember that everything I’ve written can be found on CrossFit.com. The pillars of CrossFit training on your own are the WOD’s, nutrition, and self-sufficiency! Feel free to ask questions but do so after doing a little legwork in the “Exercises and Demos”, watching the Demo videos, and by clicking “Compare To”. Almost every question has already been asked! If you DO ask please do so politely and with respect for those of us who have been here for a while. More bees with honey, and all that! For everyone else please be kind to those folks who are new, who have all that energy and enthusiasm for their new discovery. You and I were Newbies once, too!

That’s it for the Newbie Chronicles for 2013. I hope they were helpful. I’ll be around if you need me. Keep an eye out for me every Sunday; Coach and Lynne have tolerated a little thing called “Sunday musings” for a few years now.

To the Bat Cave Robin, our job here is done…

@JR

3 pullups and 3 dips is a good sub for one muscle up.

Comment #8 - Posted by: Nick at January 29, 2013 6:53 PM

@#4 - JR

Use the website: FAQ >> Substitutions (3.11. I don't have rings, or can't do ring dips.)

Comment #9 - Posted by: hungerstar at January 29, 2013 6:54 PM

I made my own rings for under twelve dollars. Go to the hardware store and have them cut two pieces of 1" PVC pipe 2' long. Fill them with sand and tape off the end with duct tape. Put them in the oven at 350 for about 6 or 7 mins. One at a time . Then take them out and wrap them around a paint can use more duct tape to hold the ends together while they cool . When done pour out the sand . I made mine and they work awesome. Look around the Internet for a video, iam sure there is one somewhere.

Thanks Bingo for another newbie chronicle. Doesn't matter how long I have been following HQ. I still feel like a newbie and grab a few things out of you comments or my own use. Look forward to your musings.

Comment #16 - Posted by: TM at January 29, 2013 9:41 PM

Great video, nice production... and those girls are great athletes!!!

Comment #17 - Posted by: Emmanuel at January 29, 2013 10:44 PM

Hmmm. Since I have never done the squat snatch (nor snatch either) I thought this would be a good place to start practicing it. But no way I could make the WOD then, or could I?
Besides I got no rings at the gym I go so I'm planning something like this:
15-12-9
Pull-Ups
Dips
Overhead Squats
Kettlebell Swings

That could somewhat hit the same spots, or?

Thank you Bingo. I just love to read your newbie chronicles. Funny and useful. I will be looking forward to your Sunday musings. Cheers from Portugal!

44/m/176cm/74kg

115 pound squat snatches

9:25 PR (last time 11:30, previous PR 9:38)

9 consecutive MUs in round 1.

Snatches not too bad today, although all singles, rep by rep.
Concentrated on squeezing my lats to keep the bar close in the beginning, explosive second pull and quick pull under.
Landed too wide and on my toes at some reps.
Kept telling myself to relax, because this is light weight. No need to over tension and force anything, just concentrate on technique and smooth movement.
The video showed me that my upper back is slightly rounded and my butt comes up first in the beginning. My landing position is still to upright because of poor shoulder flexibility, but I'm getting there.

Comment #28 - Posted by: Memuc at January 30, 2013 5:19 AM

Did it last Saturday and doing it again right before the Open to gauge how much progress I can achieve in those movements in 5 weeks.

16:18 Rx

I almost gave up in the first round; everything felt impossible. I stuck with it though and the squat snatches got easier and once I remembered my technique on the MU I just had to man up and power through them.

Big thank you to bingo for the newbie chronicles again this year. Doesn't matter now long one has been on board, they are always enjoyable to read, and so valuable to the beginner.

Keep the musings coming!

Comment #34 - Posted by: Kevin C. (M/53/5'11"/175) at January 30, 2013 7:38 AM

If you sub the the muscle ups for the pull-ups and dips,do you do a pull-up then a dip or do all the pull-ups then do the dips?

Comment #35 - Posted by: Anthony at January 30, 2013 7:56 AM

38:07 I added two minutes because I started the timer late cause I was distracted by a gym member asking about the rings and I forgot to start the timer till I was half way through the pull-ups and dips. I could not do a muscle up so I did three ring pull-ups and three ring dips for each muscle up. It took a lot longer than I thought it would. After reading about the sub I should have done two of each cause I did the dips and pullups on the rings. As for the snatch I could not do the proper snatch with 135, I did two but it was more like a power snatch or muscle snatch so I lowered the weight to 115 and focused on the mechanics and form. I did notice that the hip thrust was a big help. I worked on shooting up standing then hip thrust and it propelled the bar most of the way. When I finally get my hips and knees loosened up, I might find some confidence to do a snatch by dropping under the bar, but for now I will have to adjust. I might have been able to do the entire thing with 135 but it would have taken a lot longer and I would not have been able to focus on form and function at all, just brute strength.

No room in the garage for muscle ups, so I did some strength/skill work with similar movements instead.

Overhead squats, 5 sets of 3 (115#)
50 ring dips in 10 sets of 5

Pretty easy and quick workout, but better than nothing!

Already posted wod results, but I have a general question for all CF Radio listeners -- does the iTunes podcast feed work for anyone these days? A number of us have posted in the Journal asking JJ and HQ what is going on, but afaik we haven't gotten any response yet. I know we can download the episodes manually but I really miss getting the weekly updates directly to iTunes. Can anyone (esp. from HQ) shed some light on this? Thanks.

Comment #58 - Posted by: Greg W./22/6'4"/190 at January 30, 2013 1:25 PM

Question: I was going to do this workout and practiced the squat snatches for roughly 15 minutes, having never done these. Even though I have done OHS (not very heavy), I felt very wobly, at 95#, so I did a different WOD. Is there a way to increase the strength of the stabilizer muscles, or is this a dumb question? Is it just by practicing the movement that will strengthen them? Thank you for the feedback.

Hey Family,

I feel as though subbing pull-up's/dips for muscle-up's is time consuming (as for time) than the actual muscle-up's itself.

25 pull-up's
25 dips
9 snatches

15 pull-up's
15 dips
7 snatches

10 pull-up's
10 dips
5 snatches

i started this workout with just practice on bar muscle ups. I am proud to announce I completed my first one!!! i ended up doing about 9 total. This got me pretty hot after my warm up so i started the workout at the 9 snatches at 135, and completed the rest of the workout subbing 3 PU's and 3 dips per muscle up. Time was probably around 10 minutes.

muscle up wooooo!

Next up: ring muscle up
