What does "For each set, touch and go at ground only" mean?

Comment #2 - Posted by: Franiel at August 3, 2013 5:41 PM

Touch and go for each set means that as soon as the plates touch the ground you start the pull again. It is only a light touch, NOT a bounce off the ground. It should also be as heavy as possible even to the point of failure on your last rounds.

I'm new to this I know what deadl lift is but what is meant by 7-7-7-7-7 ?

Comment #4 - Posted by: Jon Kmetz at August 3, 2013 6:22 PM

Kristan Clever is adorable. I hope she takes a little rest and allows her body to heal a bit. She will come back stronger than ever!

Comment #5 - Posted by: MarieJacques at August 3, 2013 6:43 PM

Jon, do 7 sets of 7 dead lifts in each set. Enjoy!!

Like Jeff says, it's seven sets of seven reps each. Each dash represents "Rest as required between sets. Enough to fully recover, but not so long as to cool down." Most folks rest somewhere between 2-5 minutes between sets. For this WOD, personally I will most likely rest about 2.5 minutes for the first three rest intervals, increase that to 3 minutes for rest intervals 4 and 5, and rest 3.5 minutes before the final set.

HTH.

Comment #8 - Posted by: Chase M/26/5'9"/155 at August 3, 2013 8:53 PM

How long of rest between sets?

Comment #9 - Posted by: Jon Kmetz at August 3, 2013 8:56 PM

Not just 7 sets of 7 reps, that would be written 7x7.

This notation, 7-7-7-7-7-7-7, means that you should be increasing the weight with each set.

7x7 means the weight stays the same. Big difference in training.

Comment #10 - Posted by: Gavin at August 3, 2013 9:24 PM

I didn't know the right weight for 7RM so it came out something like 85-85-95-95-105-105-105 with 30sec rest, but wasn't enough so I added 2 more slow sets of 7 with 115kg, but couldn't add more weight because there wasn't.
with Crossfit my punches are getting heavier :)
Love it!

Comment #11 - Posted by: Alberto at August 3, 2013 9:28 PM

How long should you rest between sets? If we're aiming to increase weight each set I'm assuming we should rest until fully recovered?? With shoulders 5-5-5-5-5 last week I rested a good 3 min between sets - just wondering if this is correct?

Comment #13 - Posted by: bretty72 at August 4, 2013 12:21 AM

Rest, there is no correct answer. Most do 30-90s, 60s average. Ideally not rest till fully recovered.

Deadlift #125kg, 7 sets x 7 reps.

Comment #15 - Posted by: Jose-Luis Morales at August 4, 2013 1:43 AM

Just to clarify, I am to perform 7 sets of 7 reps while increasing the weight on each set until being at or very near my 7RM on the final set? As for rest between sets I can take is as long as needed, but should aim to keep it as short as possible?

Comment #16 - Posted by: Matthew S Cooper at August 4, 2013 1:50 AM

warmed up with 5x5 with 55kg . then my loads for the workout: 60,65,70,75,80,85,90 .. the last set and a half got heavy .. :) .. pretty happy .. did this on the minute .. then moved on to Fran-like workouts ...

Sunday musings...

1) Vacation. Over.

2) Obtuse. Like chartreuse, only you know, darker.

3) Games. The CrossFit Games are now over for another year. Time to get back to the gym. Time to concentrate on simply being better tomorrow than you were yesterday through the effort you make today.

4) Family. Clan bingo adds a member. "Lovely Daughter" said yes. I now need names for the fiancé of both "The Heir" and "Lovely Daughter"!

5) History. "In talking about the past we lie with every breath we draw." William Maxwell.

If I know who William Maxwell is I can't remember at the moment. That's kinda the point anyway, isn't it? There's a certain amount of self-delusion in any historical account, whether it be small and personal or global, encompassing all of humanity. You know, history belongs to the victor and all. It's possible to uncover the unvarnished truth; inexorable technological advancement makes even the best of lies fall open eventually. Tabitha King says that when you lie "all you do is postpone the day at which you're revealed to be a liar."

Memory is a funny thing; that's kinda what Maxwell is saying. How we remember things oft times involves more than a little lying, to ourselves and others. Each of us remembers the part that was good for us, then or now. There might not have been any part that was good and in those cases we remember the part that hurt the least. We can bury the pain if we fail or refuse to remember it.

The inability to truly remember challenges our very sense of self, a challenge that is unacceptable to the subconscious. We seek to defeat that challenge to our essence through confabulation, the wholesale creation of memories from the scrap yard of our mind. One who cannot remember lies out loud in the hope that he, and we, will believe what we hear. Being unable to remember is kinda like having a damaged hard drive. We might be able to muster the technology to repair the hard drive, exhume the memory, expose the lie.

But must we?

The truth is powerful. Like a powerful storm it washes away the veneer that the victor places on history. Like the sun that never sets the truth eventually bakes through the permafrost of the lies we tell ourselves. The truth, like the storm and the sun, is the proverbial double-edged sword that both cleaves the fat and cuts the flesh. One man's truth unhinges another man's lies. The sun shower might pre-sage a tsunami, as it were.

Where's this all going? Talk of lies and history? I've been on a little quest, a walkabout of the mind if you will, examining the little lies of omission and commission that sit at the foundation of the house of cards that is my own little self. Seeking a more accurate truth by trying to wash away some of the veneer that covers my history so that I might own up to whatever part I might have played in creating hard stuff in my life, or the lives of those who travel alongside me. I find myself saying stuff like "boy, I really coulda done a better job of that", usually followed by some version of "I'm sorry." Find myself saying that quite a bit, actually.

At a certain point I will have to stop doing this, at least out loud, for at some point the exposure of my own little lies will produce a kind of destruction elsewhere. If you think about it, what appears to you as a little drizzle might be a raging downpour to someone else. All of those trite little sayings like "the truth will set you free" are balanced by "the truth hurts." My poor Dad has no memory whatsoever of the horrific pain he suffered 6 months ago, and yet by now he has no memory of today's breakfast. He'll have no memory of the lies he will tell to manufacture a memory.

For the rest of us, memory intact, the lesson is probably as simple as "tell the truth" starting now. At least "tell the truth" with kindness and compassion extended both to others and yourself. Some lies, some memories should remain right where they are, in the past. For some, maybe most, we might be able to invoke the great philosopher Rafiki: "it doesn't matter, it's in the past." Every little truth told now, though, is a lie that need not be given breath, past or present.

Every little truth told now is the cornerstone for a house to provide shelter from storms yet to come.

I'll see you next week...

Ran 1.35 miles at 6:30/mile pace for warm up (dragging the dog along with me lol)

105 135 155 185 205 215 225. Form suffered at rep 5 on the last set, so I took a short break and then pushed out the last two. I'm pretty happy overall considering I couldn't do 135 three times when I started deadlifting in Afghanistan in 2012.

Once again I was talking fitness with someone at my gym and I brought up crossfit. The word latest fad comes up every time.
I get more annoyed with every conversation, and trying to explain Olympic lifting and Gymnastics are olympic sports for how long?
The last time was with an emaciated triathlete who was bragging about her sport. I love the pic Paul Nobles posted on eat to perform. An emaciated marathoner on one side and Christie Phillips on the other. Which person looks more fit to you?
I'm not trying to bash endurance athletes, but most of them I talk with seem to look down their noses at anything but their chosen form of fitness.
Sorry had to rant.

I assume there's a reason to go UP in weight on each set?

Comment #76 - Posted by: tom at August 4, 2013 1:51 PM

Hi tom @66,

Experienced strength athletes (Westside, etc.) may opt to go straight across with 80-90% of their established 7RM. Most folks here on CrossFit.com will have had less experience with this rep scheme and will use this as a way to establish a 7RM, increasing load on each set and usually aiming for a max on set #6. If you miss you get another go, and if you get the max you can choose to go higher if you are still fresh enough. As with all of the WOD's with this format the standard rest is ~3:00, + or -, enough to recover but not enough to get cool.

Hope that's helpful.

Today was my 32nd birthday, good day for a good workout. Into my 8th month of cross fit, hopefully it will continue to increase the quality of the years to come.

Got to celebrate with a movie and popcorn with my beautiful 3 year old girl.

I'm doing CFFB strength WODs with these main site WODs, so trying not to get burned out on the strength stuff here. Went light but I think it was fine for high reps.

Loved this WOD today! Really pushed myself with the last two sets and didn't have to break them up. Thought maybe I might have to but was a little stubborn today. Feeling pretty good about my next 1RM(325) day on Deadlift!

disagree with above early comment to rest 30-90 seconds. this is not a speed workout, nor is it a cardio wod. it is a strength wod. 3-5 MINUTES rest better on this wod than 60 second rest.

and, agree wholeheartedly with above talking about people thinking cf is the new 'fad' workout. been doing it 10 yrs now--do fads last that long? nevermind trying to convince an endurance athlete that cf will help them, they are entrenched in their workouts. that said, i think anyone who looks at cf gets tetanic fear when looking at wods. two gym rats here(who workout 5 days a wk without fail at 5 am for the last 15 yrs), tell me over and over and over---"it is just not sustainable". your body will break down. i'm 49, and have been doing it 10 yrs, and, have had fewer injuries than them...

come to the conclusion that anyone who really wants to get fit, truly fit---not big, not look good, not ocd running/swimming/biking, but those that want to be truly fit, flexible, fast, coordinated, etc.,etc., are the only ones willing to give cf a try. any triathlete who gives it a try, and tries to instantly match a cf athlete lb for lb will blow a shoulder, 100% of the time.

if going to be smart enough to try cf to help your fitness, please, PLEASE, be smart enough to realize, other than swimming, your shoulders have done zero in training for however many yrs you've been an endurance athlete. GO SLOW AND LIGHT in the wt dept. and, FIND SOMEONE WHO KNOWS PROPER FORM to help you.

my pulmonologist saw me and asked what workout i do. he tried cf for a month, blew a shoulder, and with his wife(a phys therapist), convinced him that anyone who does cf will have a shoulder injury. he is appalled that i have not blown mine yet after a decade of cf wods. so sad that such a great fitness regimen gets bashed so badly by the health profession because of the foolishness and unfortunate injuries to those that give it a try and blame the program rather than themselves for not knowing their bodies better.

Remember people that this is supposed to be As Heavy As Possible. If you are having 100# or more difference from you start to ending weight, then you didn't start heavy enough. Your warm-up reps don't count as the 7. You should be hitting your max of seven in rounds 5 or 6 and pushing yourself to the limit in the last round. It is OK to fail because it sets a goal for next time.

Comment #122 - Posted by: Robert at August 5, 2013 10:34 AM

Good stuff Bingo.

Eff the CrossFit bashers. Tell'em to come to a CrossFit competition and hit it up. I would put a 3-month CrossFit athlete, no wait, a 1-month CrossFit athlete, up against any CrossFit basher and watch them go home cryin to mama about how they got beat. Ok, maybe that's a slight stretch, but those who are doin this thang fo real know what I'm talking about. I have found most CF bashers are too lazy, too incompetent, or too scared to try it, much less stick with it.

Very tired coming into this, after a full day of household chores and mowing the lawn. But the workout seemed to perk me up. Decided to stop at 365 - might have had more, but it was enough for today. Got some practice in on sumo-style deadlift; these felt okay, but still heavy.

WAAAAY late to the party here...and it's the first time I had to write "33" in my headline...

Ran out of weight in the garage, but felt just about right.

Probably could've got more, but grip was a bit of concern. Better once I put bandage on finger.

On the last round, had to stop and re-grip at the 5th rep, otherwise all was touch and go. Felt good to be doing some heavier DL's again.

225, 275, 285, 295(5)+1+1, 295, 305, 305 (140k) = 13,305lb as rx'd - grip failed (callus pain) on R4, so borrowed some straps, which were a revelation. Amazon??
