A new study published in the Journal of Physiology suggests that a single session of high-intensity interval exercise (HIIT) may significantly slow the growth of cancer cells. Blood serum collected from a group of male colorectal cancer survivors after a single HIIT session showed an immediate reduction in cancer cell growth, which suggests that HIIT may change the environment of the cells. According to lead researcher James Devin, an exercise physiologist at the University of Queensland, “Researchers found there were elevations in some inflammatory markers, known as cytokines, immediately after exercise, and hypothesized that this is what played the biggest role in cell growth reduction."

Globo Scale: As per usual, if need be sub dumbbell thrusters 20/15lb DB's for wallballs. Triple unders... If no rope do box or bench jump overs 24/20, or if just jumping over a bench works. If you have a rope and do not have triple unders, do 2/1 double unders or 4/1 single unders after spending 10 minutes pre WOD working on the higher jump rope skill. Walking lunges--- If no room, sub 20 stationary lunges.

Mickey FergusonApril 4th, 2019 at 1:18 am

Does anyone know of a single (non-Games level) athlete who has triple-unders? I know one or two who might be able to get a couple of them, but 3 rounds of 40? I've gotten exactly one (1) in the many times we've had skill work on the jump rope, and I'm very consistent with DU. (50 unbroken is routine.)

Chris SinagogaApril 4th, 2019 at 2:17 am

Hey Mickey, there's a few out there. Aaron Sexton, Jay, and Sabal are our gym peeps who can do triples. I think like 14 in a row is their best. Just bump the exercises up the ladder and triples down if you want to work on them. Do like 10 triple attempts, 30 lunges, 40 wallballs. Or something like that.

Sebastien FitzpatrickApril 4th, 2019 at 9:01 am

One, Austin Malleolo says “program for the best, scale for the rest” and “you won’t get new skills if you only program old skills”. Two, yes you will see some folks on here (none elites) do triple unders.

Krishna SachanandaniApril 5th, 2019 at 12:33 am

I can do sets of 10 max set 20 have done them under fatigue too def not a games athlete just have to practice will be hitting this soon

Hunter FrizzelleApril 4th, 2019 at 1:55 am

I don’t know anyone that can do consistent triple unders....... I’m sure some can but I don’t know any..... 13 yr crossfitter, level 1 coach and used to own a box. Please return the wods that are somewhat manageable to regular crossfitters. I get that wods need to get harder Bc athletes are better these days but some of this stuff is ridic.

Chris SinagogaApril 4th, 2019 at 2:25 am

Hunter, I would definitely like to stay in my comfort zone and see AMRAP in 20 minutes of: 20 wallballs, 30 lunges, 40 double unders. But these new workouts that have been coming up are challenging me both as a coach and athlete in a really good way. If you think critically about the workouts listed you'll get a lot out of them.

Allison AutreyApril 4th, 2019 at 3:03 am

HUNTER FRIZZELLE...Like Chris said, the point is to try something to improve on your skills. This will vary depending on skill and ability. If you don't have triple unders, try....and if it doesn't come to pass during the workout, move to double unders. If you do not have double unders, try, and then move to singles...or if you have a couple double unders, then stick with that and keep working on it. Myself, I cannot even jump rope at all right now. I would probably scale to fast mountain climbers or fast burpees. Something to keep the stimulus on par. We need to be able to look at the workouts and see the possibilities rather than see the limitations. xoxo

Champions Club Scaling Notes RANT: The low volume on lunges is in recent workouts is something I’ll have to do a better job of figuring out. I have seen complaints over the years about how CrossFit is not very vocal when they change things. But I actually don’t mind it – especially for the workouts – because it leaves a lot open for interpretation. You can bend and scale these workouts however you want in order to fit your purpose. I SHOULD TRY THIS RX’D IF: You can do a few triple unders in a row and you want that skill tobe your focus SCALING THIS WELL WILL CAUSE ME TO: get a leg and a lung burner out of it in under 10 minutes GROUP VERSION: change the order to whatever you want emphasized going from least to most. So you could do 20 wallballs, 30 lunges, 40 triples (or some number of doubles/singles). You could go 20 triples, 30 wallballs, 40 lunges, etc. Think about what your group needs themost. WARMUP: Squat – wallball prep Jump rope – always L-sit – because Coach says and it seems to be paying off (go figure) [insert thing you suck at] [insert thing you suck at] GENERAL FEAR LEVEL (1=REST DAY, 10=PR-DRIVEN FGB): 4. Unbroken or close to unbroken jump ropes can make it worse.

Juan AcevedoApril 4th, 2019 at 2:44 am

Intended Stimulus . Today is an excellent reminder that our skill training should not end when we reach what we call RX. If you have double unders remembering how frustrating and rewarding learning that skill was can be very illuminating. We should not stop learning. If you have never tried triple unders before, let today be your first day towards that. If you are still mastering doubles, or singles, keep doing that, relax and remember we are all in the same boat. Spend some good time in the warm up practicing power jumps, and penguin jumps, whether for triples or doubles. Once in the workout, choose a scaling option that allows you to keep moving. Today should be a high heart rate keep moving kind of day. Use a ball that allows you to break the wall-ball shots no more than twice per set. Lunges should be pristine, even if you need to assist them with a PVC. Today let's hustle! . Option 1 3 rounds for time of: 20 walking lunges 30 wall-ball shots 30 seconds playing with triple unders 120 Double Unders Men: 20-lb. ball to 10 ft. Women: 14-lb. ball to 9 ft. . Option 2 3 rounds for time of: 20 walking lunges 30 wall-ball shots 30 seconds playing with double unders 180 Single Unders Men: 14-lb. ball to 10 ft. Women: 10-lb. ball to 9 ft.

This looks like a fun one. I think that the movements will significantly impact each other, and this workout will be much harder than I initially expected. Walking Lunges: I consider this to be a relatively low volume of walking lunges. I will have nearly all of my athletes perform this movement as prescribed. I will scale the reps, and potentially the range of motion, on an individual basis, if needed. Wall-ball Shots: I consider the volume of this movement to be fairly high, with an additional challenge of completing these reps after performing lunges. I will have many of my athletes attempt this movement as prescribed. I anticipate that I will need to reduce the reps, decrease the load, or lower the height of the toss, for a lot of athletes, to maintain consistency and range of motion. I will likely do this on an individual basis. I will also give some time guidelines or limit sets to complete the reps on each round. For example, athletes will spend no longer than 2:00-2:30 on any round of wall-balls or only allow 3 sets to complete the reps on any round. Triple-Unders: I think nearly everyone will need to scale this movement. I will treat this as a time to practice a challenging jump rope skill for each athlete’s ability level. For those that can easily perform double-unders, they will attempt triple-unders for 1:30-2:00 each round. For those that have a hard time performing double-unders, I will have them attempt 40 double-unders each round or limit the attempts of double-unders to 1:30-2:00 each round. For those that are new or struggle with jumping rope, I will have them complete single unders, performing 80-120 reps each round.

Thank you Coach. I just learned a new skill. Round 1: “maybe I should order a new rope.” Round 2: “aah, spin my wrist faster!” Round 3: 40 triple unders. Not in a row, but broken with singles between and totally pumped about it!

Brand new here and trying to learn! Subbed 10 pound ball as it’s my first time. Can’t quite get TUs but managed to work on my DUs (my gym needs better jump ropes so I’m gonna bring my own next time). Time 17:20. Not bad for me. Really working on good form and full movements over speed.

I know calories burned in a workout has a LOT of variables. However, what would an average male athlete weighing 190 pounds burn in a workout like this...any guesses?

Krishna SachanandaniApril 5th, 2019 at 12:35 am

great way to also do this wod is see how many doubles you can do if you can do sets of 100 consistent try triples if you cant string them together try this workout with a weighted rope the one from rx smart gear works great

Chris MeldrumApril 6th, 2019 at 5:30 pm

Scaled to double-unders (can't do triple-unders yet). Time - 7:24. Unbroken lunges and DUs. This was all about the wall balls. Unbroken first round, but had to break in rounds 2 and 3. Went 15-7-8 and 20-10, but also had a couple where I rested while holding the ball. First round was ~2:15 so I feel pretty good about the pace for the last 2 rounds. 46m/5'10"/180

Claire Fiddian-GreenApril 6th, 2019 at 9:38 pm

11:22, Rx lunges and WB shots. Scaled DU to 80 singles per round. Then I spent 5 minutes practicing double unders and got 40, all broken up by 1-3 singles. That’s the most DU I’ve ever gotten, and - wouldn’t you know it - I feel like the scales have improved my ability to jump correctly for DU. I also practiced moving my wrists faster/more aggressively, and that helped, too.

Should have upped the reps for those. Thrusters were the hard part, but a lot of the problem was that my shoulder was feeling weird at full extension.
