I really hope this workout does not lead to tricep injury. My triceps are absolutely killing me from Friday's Push Jerks.

Comment #2 - Posted by: kabitman15 at February 15, 2013 5:20 PM

3rds 50 squats and 10 push-ups, more importantly $225 raised so far. Proud to be part of a community that takes responsibility to care for the less fortunate.

Comment #3 - Posted by: Shaun at February 15, 2013 5:20 PM

I will do this WOD and consider it "hope for USA" nothing against Kenya but there is far too many people here that need help first.

Comment #4 - Posted by: Dustin at February 15, 2013 5:24 PM

Ditto Dustin. I guess it isnt hip to do things for our country/kids. Hey, Hollywood adopt one of our kids

no rest for the wicked

Comment #6 - Posted by: Gav at February 15, 2013 5:48 PM

Dustin,
Agree 100%. Pretty hard to be the city on the hill when ours is crumbling. Hope for USA!

Comment #7 - Posted by: CP at February 15, 2013 5:49 PM

Is good

Comment #8 - Posted by: Samantha at February 15, 2013 5:50 PM

Dustin and BDS,
Why do you guys think that helping the USA and helping the rest of the world are mutually exclusive?

We can, and will, do both. In fact, CrossFit's work for people in the developed world has made initiatives such as Hope for Kenya possible.

Comment #9 - Posted by: Russ Greene at February 15, 2013 6:02 PM

Comet CrossFit is in!

Comment #10 - Posted by: bingo at February 15, 2013 6:30 PM

You can say "screw Kenya" or blaspheme anyone you want but it just shows how narrow minded you are. Have you ever been to a 3rd world country? Have you ever donated time or food to a malnourished family with small children? With your comment, I suspect not in a million years. To give yourself an opportunity to grow and learn as a human being, please see a documentary called "The fourth world". More info can be found at FourthWorldFilm.com. I hope they let your comment stay on this board, because you deserve to proudly wave your flag of idiocy and ignorance until you learn better. Ya never know, someone else might be screaming from the rooftops F%CK JJ! Just saying.

Comment #11 - Posted by: Sid Cranston at February 15, 2013 6:56 PM

10 min amrap
50 squats
30 push ups
15 dead hang pull ups (tree branch haha!)

3 Rounds + 50 squats + 30 push ups+ 10 pull ups

Comment #12 - Posted by: Jason Hutchcraft at February 15, 2013 7:12 PM

I'm having a tough time feeling this whole Kenya thing. It's just not a cause I feel pulled towards. SO I thought maybe something on this 'Why Hope for Kenya' video would have me think otherwise. UHM, nope. I'd be hard pressed to think anyone is going to remember much about that video except two things, if you know what I'm saying. Dumb.

Comment #13 - Posted by: TD at February 15, 2013 7:16 PM

Are we skipping a rest day to do this Kenya WOD, or are we doing four days on/one day off for some reason? It looks strange to me, but I'm relatively new too.

Comment #14 - Posted by: Jay at February 15, 2013 7:23 PM

Rx Did 3 full rounds+50 squats+25 push ups
Although time was over, I still finished the round

Comment #15 - Posted by: Erika at February 15, 2013 7:23 PM

when did people become so cynical. Last yeast crossfit, a fitness organization raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for st Jude's here in America . This year their helping children in Kenya by building schools and bringing quality water to their community. Regardless of their nationality these children are benefiting from crossfits support and being given opportunities they have been denied by circumstance. I see no other "fitness" organization I.e. anytime fitness, p90x, insanity, golds gym, planet fitness, or Zumba doing anything close to what crossfit has organized. Iam extremely proud of crossfit and though I do no live anywhere near a box I will be doing hope for Kenya and donating money to this cause.

Comment #16 - Posted by: hollyhog at February 15, 2013 7:36 PM

Would love to do this one, but gotta do The Hortman hero WOD tomorrow. Never miss the hero WODs, no matter how painful, as this surely will be.

Comment #17 - Posted by: Jim R./50/5'8"/160 at February 15, 2013 7:56 PM

I'm gonna get flamed, but I'm too old to care anymore. I'm more concerned about the kids in my own city, state and country than I am about the ones in Kenya.

Good on Crossfit though, paying it forward to those less fortunate.

3,2,1...Go!

Comment #18 - Posted by: Playoff Beard at February 15, 2013 8:20 PM

There's plentiful social welfare in the united states. Why the bitterness?

Comment #19 - Posted by: tylar at February 15, 2013 8:33 PM

Gonna do this with the group tomorrow. If anyone has been to a poor country, such as Haiti or Kenya, where 4 year old kids are left to fend for themselves with no hope or social programs, they would understand why it's important. Helping the US is just as important, but the needs of children in Kenya go unmet.

Comment #20 - Posted by: Adam at February 15, 2013 8:35 PM

I think it's great that we are helping the kenyans. If you want to help Americans, then shut up and do it. Remember, it's not about you and what you think... Its about helping others. Some people help dogs, some help the elderly, some help the poor, some help the rich. It takes all kinds of help to make the world go.

Comment #21 - Posted by: david at February 15, 2013 8:53 PM

So does this mean we are going to have 7 days straight of wods? Iam game!

Comment #22 - Posted by: hollyhog at February 15, 2013 8:58 PM

People in the U.S. have the freedom to help themselves, these kids are not born with that freedom, I'd say its a justified cause

Comment #23 - Posted by: Nick at February 15, 2013 9:05 PM

i thought it was 3 on 1 off? but i'm all for the 4th day...we as people should help anyone that needs it regardless of who gets the help first or where its at...Or just take the proper action to start it on our own to help in our areas and cities....Either way i don't think nobody is wrong or right for stating their opinions every one has the right to feel a certain way...we should just take action...

The Crossfit community has really let me down in today's comments with a focus on themselves and their own problems instead of seeing the bigger picture.

I totaly agree... So disappointing...

Comment #28 - Posted by: Argo at February 15, 2013 11:44 PM

I read these comments and I understand why our country is falling apart... The liberal mindset is an amazing concept to me and I don't understand it... If you want to help other countries that is great, just do it on your own and don't tell me I should be doing the same thing... or even better, permanently move to that country and donate 100% of your time to it... If you are here in America, maybe you should focus on making IT better rather than living in your little bubble of freedom and happiness that has yet to be popped.... America won't be so "great" for that much longer if we keep doing what we are doing... SOME PEOPLE JUST DON'T GET IT!!!

Comment #29 - Posted by: American Warrior at February 16, 2013 12:17 AM

Charity is good no matter where it is, home or abroad.

Also all the talk of rest days, CrossFit is designed to help you be prepared for life, you think life wont throw crazy stuff at you because it should be your rest day? Police offices, soldiers etc get let off by the criminals and enemy because its their 4th shift, I don't think so. I get training smart etc but sometimes its good to go all out

Comment #30 - Posted by: Shortz at February 16, 2013 12:20 AM

while Hope for Kenya is a noble endeavor, why not focus our attentions inward. why not: Hope for NY or Hope for Chicago?

Comment #31 - Posted by: jeff sprunger at February 16, 2013 12:42 AM

3 and 21 RX.

Managed $300 down here in NZ happy to contribute whatever I can.

Comment #32 - Posted by: Michael at February 16, 2013 1:37 AM

You guys just don't understand that it is not all about America no matter where the CFHQ is seated... CF is now something more, it's spirit and principles go beyond the boundaries. It's something that litteraly change people's life all over the word and as such, it can change the word... America is as important as any other part of the word - and CF is just helping Kenya children now because the guys is charge decided so. And it's irrelevant whether they need it more or less than US children (and sorry to say I really guess they need it more)... You may follow or you may not - it is that simple... Your attitude is, however, small....

Comment #33 - Posted by: Argo at February 16, 2013 1:40 AM

A few observations.

Crossfit is an international fitness movement. Admitedly developed in the United States, but it has international appeal. The main site is visited by people from all over the World and they contribute enormously to our community.

There is nowhere in the World where the improvement of a society will not have knock on effects elsewhere. Improvements see a reduction in the places organised crime or terrorism can hide. Opens markets and frees trade. Indeed, failure to invest in those less well off than ourselves in a philanthropic manner may be one of the best ways to ensure that that we limit our liberties Worldwide.

The concept of liberal and libertarian - not just as it applies to this, but in a much broader sense, seems to be becoming increasingly confused. A libertarian tends to be locally focussed, a liberal just looks to the way in which they can exercise their freedoms unimpeeded. None of these have anything to do with where or how people wish to support others.

Only a couple of thoughts.

They probably reveal where I fit - I've done muscle ups with Dinka tribesmen in Sudan and burpees with homeless Karen children on the Thai Burmese border...Hope for Kenya 3, 2, 1 go!

Comment #34 - Posted by: Adam at February 16, 2013 2:11 AM

3 full sets
4th set 50 squats & 30 pressups

Comment #35 - Posted by: Dave at February 16, 2013 2:48 AM

It's disappointing how discouraging some people are of others just trying to help the less fortunate. CrossFit, as an organization, has my complete backing. With that said, I was 6 pullups short of 5 rounds.

4 Rounds + 9 Pullups

Never Above You, Never Below You
Always Beside You.

Comment #39 - Posted by: Justin at February 16, 2013 4:04 AM

Adam great post. To all those that have been critical on here, shut up. You say don't help the Kenyans, help the Americans. Most likely you don't help anyone at all, so shut up. Yes we have problems and certain areas need help in the US, but nothing compared to third world countries. I'm speaking from experience having been to Kosovo, Iraq, and the Horn of Africa. There is nothing un-American about CrossFit HQ supporting Hope For Kenya. Pull your head out and realize that any philanthropic assistance is better than none.

Comment #40 - Posted by: Josh at February 16, 2013 4:35 AM

If we can and want to help Kenya, I say great let's do it! If others want to help the US, then I say great, let's do that too!! The point is - just help someone. Sitting on the sidelines casting comments is not going to help anyone, most of all yourself! Let your actions do your talking...

Comment #42 - Posted by: Graham at February 16, 2013 5:02 AM

While I agree that we should be looking inward in our attempts to help the needy, just look at the amount of welfare and help our country already provides. Kids don't starve in the U.S.. They don't need clean water. They've got all the basic necessities in life and a freak'n Xbox.

If you don't want to give charity to Kenya, don't. But you've no right to criticize those that would.

Comment #43 - Posted by: Z at February 16, 2013 5:06 AM

Five rounds exactly.....for hope around the world!

Comment #44 - Posted by: J.Law Ninja at February 16, 2013 5:06 AM

Good civil debate going on here, that's important!

Always speak your mind, especially if your viewpoint is unpopular. That takes courage. If you can do so without denigrating the opinions of others, you'll earn respect and probably learn something.

My Mom used to tell me: "Son, you have two ears and one mouth. God wants you to listen twice as much as you speak."

Still working on that one.

Comment #45 - Posted by: Playoff Beard at February 16, 2013 5:38 AM

7 Rds + 7 Squats (672) reps. Looking to the games.

Comment #46 - Posted by: Jon Zeisset at February 16, 2013 5:39 AM

Good morning everyone, and welcome to Hope for Kenya day!

Dustin, BDS and many others ask an important question, why Kenya at all when so many children need help right here at home. I asked CrossFit founder and CEO Greg Glassman that exact question this past summer, and his answer was simple:

"We help because we can, wherever we can."

CrossFit is helping the children and families of the Kasemeni Division of Eastern Kenya not to the exclusion of its efforts elsewhere but as part of its ongoing initiatives to improve lives everywhere. Reaching out a hand to help in one part of the world does not mean CrossFit has let go of hands here at home.

CrossFit affiliates all over North America host throw-downs, competitions and events to raise funds for local food banks, toy drives, homeless shelters and more. CrossFit Kids provides SAT coaching for American children who would not otherwise be able to afford tutoring.

Affiliates open their doors to fund-raising events to support our servicemen and women who are returning from some of the worst places on earth, helping to provide financial support for mental health initiatives and physical therapy. CrossFit is clear that part of its mission is to honour those who have fallen and to aid those who have returned, as well as the families who have lost a loved one.

If you look to the navigation bar on the left side of this website, you will find ways to support CrossFit's efforts to end catastrophic children's illnesses in the U.S. and around the world through the groundbreaking research and care at the St. Jude's hospital in Memphis.

Drowning is the leading cause of death for American toddlers. CrossFit aims to change that through the Infant Swim Resource. You can find more information on that initiative on the left nav-bar as well.

What CrossFit is doing today - just like its key initiatives in North America - is stepping up to help a community where help is needed. It's just that the zip code is different.

Every day, CrossFit and CrossFit affiliates work hard to make their local communities better places to live. Today, we will also take 12 minutes to give children 10,000 miles away a fighting chance at a better life.

It's what we do.

Thank you all for your effort today.

Marty Cej

Why is it that less than half of these posts employ correct grammer and spelling. Didn't we all take language arts?

Comment #51 - Posted by: Adam at February 16, 2013 7:02 AM

Thank you for the explanation Marty. I'm glad to see the Crossfit community cares about people in other countries. We're all one human family.

I'm troubled by the prevelance of military charities at athletic events. Most Americans don't want to be policing and occupying the world. If we really support the troops we should bring them home. Besides, the US government sent them there so why is it up to charities to provide mental health and physical therapy etc? That's what I pay taxes for.

Perhaps because there are also true CrossFitters for whom English is not their mother tongue? Your question reflects today's discussion - the picture is bigger than you may think...

I'm surprised to hear so many people with negative comments towards helping people in a third world country. You have no idea how lucky you are to be born where you were. We should do a wod next week to bring awareness to our ignorance.

I'm crushing it today.

Comment #64 - Posted by: Curtis Laughren at February 16, 2013 8:23 AM

Well said, Adam. I can understand the frustration of those who see all the people here at home who need help, but i cant find it in my heart to begrudge any charitable act. and let's not assume that acting locally and globally are mutually exclusive. A good deed is a good deed no matter where it's done.

Heads up, doing a workout at home or at.a gym isn't going to help anyone if your so dead set keen on helping kids in your town/city skip the workout and get out in the community and make a change, or if ya got a spare 10 bucks flip it to a charity that will help children from a country much less fortunate then your own.

When you help your neighbor light his lamp you will find that you have also illuminated your path. And no doing a workout will not improve anyone's condition but the virtue of charity does not rest in the deed. I have always respected those that make efforts towards change rather than complaining. The cynic knows the price of everything but the value of nothing.

@ Marty comment #57 - very nice

I used this WOD and a CFJ article I printed the other day to further my 8 year old daughter's education (CFJ Feb 2013 "When Water Comes to You" by Marty Cej)

We are not well to do by any stretch but "we have enough". My daughter doesn't know otherwise. And I hope she never does.

However, when she read the article and how four year old girls are walking up to four miles, each way, just for water, it opened her eyes. She didn't ask me, "what can we do?"...she gave me two dollars and 48 cents and asked when we were doing the workout.

I Love my little Angel.

I'm a beginner, and this is my first post. Time to start tracking...

back to crossfit after more than 2 weeks off. Not happy with this one, but the good news is that doing crossfit since jan 1 helped me improve my skiing immensely last week. 2 rounds, plus 30 squats in 12 mins. redoubling efforts.

Finally got to do Hortman today. Did 4 rounds + 300m run, and it was an honor to suffer in Dan's name. If my body wasn't so broken from Hortman, I'd give Hope for Kenya a shot.

To all who volunteer and donate to help Americans in need, my hat's off to you.

4 rounds
pullups assisted with band.

That one hurt, but on the plus side, I convinced my mom to walk on the treadmill while I did the 12 minutes. When I was done, she was still going, while humming along to the music I had on the stereo. The song was "Hearts on Fire" by John Cafferty, from the Rocky IV soundtrack.

DRAGO!!!!

I love my country, but we are all God's children. I can only hope that one day we will be one planet with one race; the human race. Until then, do what you want to help whomever you can, because being generous helps both the receiver and the giver, while whining simply doesn't do anyone any good.

Agree or disagree, you should respect the efforts made to help others.

Crossfit has changed my life, as I am certain it has changed yours. Now, its changing lives in Kenya...why should anyone complain about such a thing?

Comment #108 - Posted by: Harold at February 16, 2013 1:08 PM

Playoff beard; very well said.

I think the attraction to helping those in dire need is the satisfaction that comes from obvious improvement AND the deep gratitude and appreciation from those benefiting from it. From a cynical viewpoint it could be considered self-serving. But from a humanistic view, it's the most basic element of being human; compassion.

With regard to our current welfare system; while it does provide basic necessities (and more), it does not cultivate a spirit of self-improvement, but rather discourages it. And tackling those social-economic issues is a very daunting challenge.

There is need everywhere! Maybe we could/should approach it like a WOD, scale it to our individual capabilities, help where we can, and cheer others on!

There seems to be a direct relationship between how soon a comment is posted and the narrow-mindedness of it. Maybe better said this way: the quicker the post, the less time spent thinking about the matter, and that is well-reflected at the top of the comments.

I'll be so bold as to say that no fitness company on the planet has done more charitable work, either domestically or abroad, than CrossFit, Inc.
FGB for many years, other local affiliate events, hero wods, St. Jude's, support for Infant Swim Resource, paying the insurance for all military and LEO affiliates, CF Kids SAT prep, and on and on and on. And people have the audacity to start sniveling about "how about doing something for 'Merica!?" as if CrossFit and its affiliates haven't - and don't - do massive amounts already?

We've created several thousand thriving businesses during the worst economy since the Great Depression. And each of those businesses has impacted their communities in ways we probably can't truly measure or appreciate.

The people of Kenya overwhelmingly speak English, value education a a means to a better life, work hard, and we've decided to help. Geopolitically speaking, Kenya sits just south of Somalia and is fighting the influx of Al Shabbab. I'd say the Kenyan people are worthy of our help.

It's been estimated that 30 billion US dollars a year can eradicate the worlds hunger. That's how much the world spends on the military every 8 days. There is more than enough food and water on this planet for everyone to love a healthy life, it's just a pity that the food and water is not divided equally across the lands. The next time you go out to eat, or when you are done eating at home, take notice of how much food gets thrown away... Now imagine how grateful a family from a 3rd world country would be to eat leftovers. We must be careful of what we take for granted. It's quite simple really - all we need to do is push for a government programme which will create simple shipping/transport of unwanted food that is still fresh, and get that food to people in need, whether it be locally or internationally... Something so simple, yet I guarantee that if it did start, then some greed driven prick will try make a profit from it. Ps did you know that humans are the ONLY creatures that pay to live on this earth. Not sure about anybody else, but I find that fact pretty damn sad. Life was not meant to be like this.

It is interesting to me that people are having a problem with the work that is done in Kenya as opposed to the USA. I am a proud American and believe good should be done here with our people and am happy when I see it done. I also believe that good should also be done elsewhere and among all people. Way to go crossfit for your efforts! May we all lift the burdens of others where we can a on any soil and among any race.

It is going to take another world war, but this time on American soil, for people to actually get it... We are cutting military spending at insane rates and dumping money into welfare programs for people who are lazy and don't feel like working... this country is not what it once was...

Maybe you should ask yourself what you have done for OUR COUNTRY lately... Until then, keep enjoying your freedoms that I help protect every single day... You're welcome, I hope that Starbucks latte you're drinking in your little bubble tastes delicious.

5 rounds. Did 60 squats and 40 pushups because I had no pullup bar, weights, etc. I owe myself 75 pullups tomorrow.

So, that first round seemed easy, huh? By round 2 the "3,2,1, go!" seems like a distant memory and you can't remember if you can count to 50. You want to keep moving but your body won't let you. What do you mean its only been 4 minutes!? Keep out of your own head. Focus on the form, not the speed. Only 3 more, 2, 1, annnddddd here comes another punishing round. Sweat much? Remember those weight lifters that said bodyweight exercises are for wimps? Where are they right now? 1 minute left! Do I speed up to finish a round or slow down and coast through? Its already been 20 seconds!? Where did the time go? FASTER, I CAN FINISH THIS ROUND! And the all too familiar sound, "beep, beep, beep, BEEP!" Great workout, but I'm going to finish the round!

we did Abbate on Friday then Hope on Saturday.

I am not great at push-ups (still on lever push-ups) or pull-ups (still using the thickest band we have to assist for max 5)

I did my WOD doing full push-ups (ouch) and ring pull-ups

completed 1 pluss squats and push-ups.

If I had kept to my usual scaling I would have done more, but insteead I chose to make it a suffer feat.

As for the charity aspect of this, I didnt give to Hope, in a few weeks I will take part in Comic Releif, a whole day of stuff UK wide to help kids & families everywhere. I will wear silly clothes and do a bake sale at work.

Does it matter where you give, isnt it just important to give?

Its not always nice to be important, but its important to always be nice!

F/42/5'6"/140

2 rnds + 27 push-ups

For some reason I wasn't thinking and started out with sit-ups instead of push-ups in the first round...just picked up the counting with push-ups when I realized it after 9 sit-ups.

Thanks for this work-out. It was a great one since I couldn't get to the box, and it was just what I needed. 2 rnds + 30 squats (done at home)

M/ 39/ 135 lbs/ 5'-6"
Hope for Kenya
12 min. AMRAP of 50 air squats, 30 pushups, 15 pullups (As Rx)
I did a bit of a longer warmup... 3rd WOD in a row, with only about 16 hours between WODs... and my last WOD was a 5x5 BS WOD, so my legs and posterior and lower back were really tight.
I did this early in the morning so I needed about 25 mintues or more to get warm and loose.

I did well: 5 complete rounds + 8 air squats = 483 total reps.

I tried to go out faster than normal and keep up a good pace.. it was a good idea. I was doing the first few rounds in a bout 2 minutes each.. I completed the 4th round with over 3 mintes left so I did another and got a few extras.
I was doing 15 or 20 or so then 10s with the squat.
I was doing around 15 plus then 15 or 10 +5 in the later rounds with only a few seconds break on the pushups.
I did all pullups unbroken... I was butterflying initially and early then doing a bit of a kip.. concentrating on getting FULL ROM.
GREAT WOD.
Shoulders were fried.
POST WOD... good little stretch and then a quick steam & shower.

It's sad to read these comments and realize that the CrossFit community is still haunted by the worst kind of tribalism. Scroll down the main page and look at all of the affiliates outside the US. Why should they focus ALL of their efforts in the US if a healthy portion of CFers are elsewhere?

The saddest part is that these are people who fully support publicly-funded military intervention in other countries, but providing aid to other countries, public or private, is anathema. Sad sad sad.

First day working out again, last night I checked the scale and I was shocked I had gained 10 lbs.

I can't let myself become more overweight, overall I was able to accomplish 4 rounds, I used the last minute to do a relaxing method so the body can calm down slowly.

Tried to keep back tight on squats. Better toward end. Pushups tried to do w/vertical forearm - hands at pecs instead of shoulders. Still got fatigued. All kipping PU instead of butterfly to protect shoulder.
