Woot looks like fun....

Comment #1 - Posted by: Globo at March 2, 2013 5:11 PM

great workout; just curious how you would compare the work done in someone who focuses on rope climb vs. pushups?

Comment #2 - Posted by: RichK at March 2, 2013 5:13 PM

to RichK...You can't unless someone partitions them exactly the same, ie 1 climb 10 pushup AMRAP. If you partition it differently, each person does a custom WOD. Like most WODs, you are competing against yourself.

Comment #3 - Posted by: Sean at March 2, 2013 5:26 PM

So, do you do one rope climb and then one push up? Or each one until failure then switch?

Comment #4 - Posted by: Doyle at March 2, 2013 5:41 PM

I think I'm going to attack this by doing 10 push-ups and 1 rope climb until it becomes obvious that I need to modify one of the numbers.

This is going to be fun.

Comment #5 - Posted by: Pat Sherwood at March 2, 2013 5:47 PM

whats a good sub for rope climb?

Comment #6 - Posted by: cadre5 at March 2, 2013 5:47 PM

never mind the sub is under the crossfit faqs under subs...if anybody needs to sub...

Comment #7 - Posted by: cadre5 at March 2, 2013 5:51 PM

@#5 (cadre5):
a good sub would be about 10 towel grip pullups for a 15 foot climb

Comment #8 - Posted by: jon m at March 2, 2013 5:52 PM

this workout is so vague. so its pretty much saying that i can do 100 rope climbs and 1 pushup? or 300 pushups and 1 rope climb? im lost. if someone could clarify that would be great. thanks

Comment #9 - Posted by: J Krypton at March 2, 2013 5:54 PM

No rope to climb at my gym, but I've seen a machine that's a rope in a loop, where you sit in a seat and keep pulling. I don't know if there's a tension control or something, but does anyone know how you'd use that as a substitute? I read that the CF standard rope is 13 feet.

Check on the "Compare To" link for a good overview of the desired way for this WOD to be performed.

Comment #11 - Posted by: Tristan at March 2, 2013 5:58 PM

Im just gonna go with maxing out on one thing an then go to the next workout

Comment #12 - Posted by: Jon at March 2, 2013 6:02 PM

@#8

I think the workout is designed to be vague. I'm interpreting it as:
1) Plan out your method of attack (1 Round = 20 Push-Ups + 1 Rope Climb)
2) Execute until fatigue
3) Readjust
4) Recommence execution.
5) Repeat #3&4 as necessary.

Just be sure to keep track of all your round totals because I have a feeling some of us (me) will need to readjust frequently.

Sub pullups for rope climb

Strict dead hang pullups - 92
Strict pushups - 210

The test is to see how many rope climbs and pushups you can do. How you partitioned it is up to you. Most people are going to be able to do more pushups then rope climbs. I started off doing sets of 5 pullups then 10 pushups. Or you could do as many pushups in the first 15 then as many rope climbs in the last 15. The choice is up to you on how your going to structure the workout. Hope this helped and have fun with this one.

Comment #14 - Posted by: hollyhog at March 2, 2013 6:13 PM

Yeah, I kept a note pad and wrote down my reps. Essential in my opinion or I would have gotten lost towards the end

Comment #15 - Posted by: hollyhog at March 2, 2013 6:15 PM

I am going to do rope climbs for 30 mins then push-ups for 30 mins and see what I can get.

Comment #16 - Posted by: Michael at March 2, 2013 6:50 PM

Look at the 'compare to' link.

The objective here is to climb and push until you can do neither.
Thoroughly exhaust both functions within 30 minutes.
Report the details of the experience both today and the effects tomorrow.

Comment #18 - Posted by: Kevin at March 2, 2013 7:01 PM

I take this workout as a rope climb followed by push-ups AMAP repeat this for 30min. I will do 10 towel pull-ups followed by AMAP push-ups for 30min as I have no rope.

31 Rope climbs, 288 Push ups.

Broke it down into 1 rope climb and 10 push ups initially. Started to fail on the push ups so reduced it to 1 climb and 8 push ups.

Great workout.

"One and a Quarter Squats" is a bad year, not based applications, the only advantage that can give you a nice patellar tendon inflammation and possible damage to the joints of the knees, there are other methods to train the explosive movement and the resulting tendon elasticity and flexibility joint!

Comment #28 - Posted by: Waylon at March 3, 2013 6:19 AM

20 rope climbs
175 push-ups

because my rope was low and it only took 4 or five pulls to get to the top, I decided to do one rope climb and five push-ups. The rope was not secure and it was draped over a tree limb and the other end was tied to another tree so it would slip against the limb and slide and slip and take a pull or two to get started and that became difficult to stabilize the climb so after about five or six I unhooked and tied it to the limb like I should have done to begin with. Then I was off and running. I then started doing 1 rope climb for every ten push-ups. I think I could have done a little better and thought I had more push-ups than I did so next time I will take more stones with me to count the number of sets so I have a goal to beat.

Comment #29 - Posted by: BW at March 3, 2013 6:57 AM

Sunday musings (while time traveling)...

1) Compare to 2001. Like I said, time traveling.

2) Mind travel. In the face of unrelenting, unremitting pain or disease our mind travels through time. Young or old, escape is found by leaving the here and now and traveling back to another time. A time of peace. A time without pain.

If today you found yourself in a place where all you had was pain, who knows where in time you yourself might land. If, on the other hand, you find yourself in the company of a loved one whose present reality is nothing but hurt, someone who has escaped through the magic of "mind travel", hitching a ride can bring a measure of solace to you both.

This week I've spent some time in greater Boston, ca. 1950 or so. I've been a tiny part of conversations with my Aunt Mary, long gone for me but very much there for my Dad as he sought refuge. Mary must have been where Dad turned for comfort when his younger self was hurting. She was there, through time travel, to comfort him in his time of need once again.

It was good to see her again.

3) Medical time. CrossFitters have taken up the cause of health, given the charge of improving health and preventing decrepitude. There will always be a need for what we can call "real medical care" or sickcare (you know, rather than healthcare). After all, stuff happens.

Much has been made of the tremendous costs of the most modern medical care. There was a 20 page article (20 pages!!) in Time magazine about this last week, about inflated charges and financial gamesmanship and whatnot. True enough. Indeed, I've read the theory that sickcare in the U.S. was pretty darned good 10, 20, 30 years ago, and we spent much less money for it back then. Why not just use, say, 1980's sickcare as our standard?Weren't we pretty healthy then? It sure seemed like we could at least afford sickcare then, both on the personal and societal levels.

Here's the rub: I saw 2013 vintage care this week, and I saw something that approximated 1985 or so. Last month while vacationing in the Islands I witnessed something like the intersection of the First and Second World as far as medicine is concerned. The "time travel" between 1985 and 2013 is a real eye opener. No one in their right mind would trade the best of what we have today for "1985 is good enough". Trust me. That particular "time travel" trip was a nightmare.

Do we as a society, country, and/or economic ecosystem need to find some way to bring some sanity, some rational economics to how we buy and pay for our "sick care"? You bet. We here in the CrossFit world are on the right track as we seek health, seek to avoid the need for sickcare. But man, I gotta tell ya, if you are sick and you need to be cured, you want to be right here in North America.

And you want to be be here today, in 2013.

I'll see you next week...

30 RCs, 270 PUs as rx'd. Impressions: could have done more PUs but wanted the RC work. Bit of a slog for me. Not a high metcon. Started at 10/1 with rest before the next one on the minute. Pretty good test of strength, stamina and grit.

My rope is anchored at 14'. I climb until my head is next to the anchor point which would be the equivilant of climbing a 15' rope and just reaching and touching the 15' mark.

I started with 2 rope climbs and 10 push-ups for 5 rounds then switched to 1 rope climb and 10 push-ups for the remainder of the time.

Final score:
34 rope climbs 297 push-ups

M/39/ 135 lbs/ 5'-6"
As Rx: 28 rope climbs + 280 pushups
I was doing 2 rope climbs and then 20 pushups usually on the odd minute rope climbs and on the even minute the pushups. I was well ahead but the forarm/ grip fatigue set in at the end. I was going for 30 & 300, but my hands started to get a little shreded and didn't want to really mess them up for 2 extra rope climbs.
Good workout.
I did Grace yesterday afternoon, and my forearms were fried for some reason, so I was happy that they were only failing at the very end.

P.S. -- Really enjoying the recent programming, Pukie. The last 4 wods have alternated between lower body and upper body, and between exercises that favor taller, longer limbed people and those that favor smaller, shorter limbed people. Nice variety and a little something for everyone.

@Comment#48:

Obviously, the most efficient way to climb ropes is using your legs. Work out a technique that suits you then work on it until it's solid.

I use a technique taught to me during Royal Marine basic training that involves pinching the rope between feet, ankles, calves and knees. I also had the benefit of spending my 32 weeks training hammering the skill daily.

If you get a good technique climbing ropes you will be able to do very high volume without actually taxing your upper body all that much.

Bingo:
You touched two points of resonance with me today. 1: I had a very wise person tell me years ago (about childhood pain) "no one was there for you then but you can be there for you now"; so you can go back in time to make peace with yourself too. 2: I had a meniscus surgery done in '74, no insurance, low pay manual laborer job. Doc said "save enough to take care of the hospital, take care of my bill whenever you can", did exactly that. Went by his office every month sometimes with only $5. They were always nice to me and treated me with respect, eventually paid the whole bill off. Completely different doctor-patient relationship then, I miss it. Still getting good use out of that knee, it's my "good" knee now. I sure technically medicine is better now for many things, but some things are far worse.

No rope so subbed towel pull-ups.

Did 19 rounds alternating 10 towel pull-ups and 10 push-ups. The towel pull-ups killed my grip and made it very difficult to stay consistent. I should have done 5 pull-ups and Mac push-ups every round cuz I could have done a lot more push-ups. Still a great workout. I definitely need the rest day tomorrow.

Legs are super sore from yesterday's workout and back was still a bit sore from Friday. It's been a great first week doing cross fit. Tuesday will be an exact week for me sticking to the site.

I am an American living in Estonia. We have socialized medicine here paid out of general taxes and I have to say I am in full support of it. Yes, the overall state of technology is better in the US, but here everyone has access to quality medical care for free (outside of the abovementioned general taxes). Even me as a foreigner (legally living and working here), once I paid a $4 registration fee, has received free medical care for the past nine years (including two cancer scares) as has my wife (gave birth to our daughter by c-section) and my daughter (with her typical childhood illnesses). We have to pay for our own prescriptions from the pharmacy but that applies to almost all countries around the world. Bringing quality medical care to ALL of the people is one of the greatest things a government can ever do for its population.

Comment #94 - Posted by: George at March 3, 2013 11:03 PM

This statement blows my mind...and I live in the socialist republic of California!

The ideology of "government" being some sort of all powerful deity that hands out health care and food and shelter...then decides how much we pay for it is crazy. Health care (or sick care per Bingo) should NOT be controlled by the federal government. Period.

Let's look at another government controlled institution: The Postal Service. Anybody think they do a better job than UPS? How about FedEx? Didn't think so. Been to the DMV lately? How about a public school? Broken down, bloated and inefficient bureacracies, just like our health care system will be.

I'm gonna cut it short, because I'm typing on my iPhone and my hand is asleep.

If you're interested in a moral comparison of collectivism (socialism) vs individualism (capitalism), here's a good read:

I thought that I'd try this again to see if I could get a better score, and I got 40 rc and 400 pu. Then I saw Brian with 41 and now it looks like I'll have to try harder.
On a secondary and bizarrely unrelated note, I saw a post about the evils of socialised health care. Without meaning to sound too condescending, I am astounded by the propaganda that takes place in the US (again sorry). I live in the UK, and like any country with socialised health care, the health outcomes that are achieved compared to the amount paid is staggeringly different to what is seen in the US. So any reference to private entreprise doing a better job (vis a vis UPS vs the Postal service) is a red herring purely on the basis of the actual evidence.

I don't have any links, but look up any mortality or morbidity statistics for the OECD countries.
