17:48 rxd with kipping hspu


The only record I could find was 22:54 from 2011 so I’m pleased with this. The first 21 HSPU didn’t get hard because I broke into sets of 3. The ring dips felt way easier than they have all year... I think because of the ring support holds...

As rx'd, 10:00.


About a minute slower than my best J.T. Disappointed, but I have not done a ton of ring dips this year, and maybe it showed. Felt good starting out, got through the round of 21 in under 3 minutes, but HSPUs slowed dramatically in the round of 15. Triceps were toast near the end of this, and I was doing single push-ups (!) for the entire round of 9.

Commented on: Effects and Clinical Potential of Very-Low-Calorie Diets (VLCDs) in Type 2 Diabetes

I see that very low-calorie diets have their use. They are also called fasting-mimicking diets because the caloric intake is so low. The argument is that they have the same physiological effect as fasting, but are more sustainable. I think that it must be tough to meet the nutrient requirements on such a low-calorie diet, so I doubt it's sustainable long-term. Fasting periods that are limited in time and alternate with nutrient-rich feasting periods might be a good alternative.

Agree with both the positive and negative points here, though I understand "fasting mimicking diets" to generally refer to a specific sort of VLCD.


What this, and some of the other posts on Crossfit.com, have tried to allude to is the targeted potential of VLCDs to drive rapid improvements in metabolic health in a way less intensive dietary interventions can't. Effectively, some sort of VLCD or a well-designed fast seems to be able to move a lot of organs in a healthier direction - clearing out fat in the liver and muscle, improving insulin sensitivity and pancreatic insulin response, etc. In individuals who want or need to quickly improve their metabolic health, a temporary VLCD, followed by a more sustainable healthy diet, may be a uniquely effective course of action. It's also interesting to think about the ways the specific metabolic benefits of a VLCD could be captured over the longer term - both specific diets like Valter Longo's specific "fasting mimicking diet" and more general diets like a ketogenic diet seem to hold some, if not all, of the same benefits.


All tools which can be used to bring us from one state of metabolic health to another.

agreed sarah, i see them more as a hack or bridge to fasting. another issue with the very-low-calorie diets is that, if used over the long-term without refeeds, they will lower BMR a la Biggest Loser - and we all know how big of a fiasco that was for participants

Happy 4th of July All! Thanks CrossFit for honoring J.T. and for presenting the community with this workout.


I am 51 and new to CrossFit, never having tried Handstand Push-Ups before, but I wanted to start somewhere and honor J.T at the same time. I didn't care how long it took, I wanted to complete this workout to the best of my ability. For HSPU, I used a band facing the wall. My workout and time was as follows:


21-15-9

Band Assisted Handstand Push-Ups

Strict Bar Dips (Deep)

Strict Push-Ups (To Floor)


With no experience on HSPU, even banded were very hard and I required a lot of rest. Did Sets of 5's, 4's, 3's and 2's at the end to complete. Literally 90% of my time easily was doing those HSPU! :) Bar Dips and Push-Ups were harder after those HSPU as well!


Time 29:37


I figured I needed to start somewhere...but I did it.

It’s great to see this workout pop up! J.T. was the very first Hero workout and packs a huge punch to the upper-body pressing muscles. The limiting factor is typically muscular failure, due to the high-degree of interference between movements. This workout is deceiving and I’ve made the mistake of going for unbroken sets. Unfortunately, this strategy can cause failure to happen early in the workout. I recommend, for most athletes, to break the reps up from onset and potentially do no more than 1/3 of your max reps in any single set. For example, if you can do 21 handstand push-ups, I might recommend starting with sets of 7 and utilize short rest periods. I have actually seen this workout completed in under 5:00, striving to complete this under 10:00 is a great goal, and going beyond 15:00 probably means we could have scaled the workout further…..although, being that this is a Hero workout, if someone wants to give the full workout a try and will exceed 15:00, I will likely allow them to do so. Here are some scaling options:


Scenario 1- For an athlete that has capacity at each movement, but cannot complete more than 10-12 reps unbroken on the HSPU and Ring dips. This athlete may benefit from reducing volume to avoid failed reps and ensure quality range of motion. A potential workout option could be:

15-12-9 or 15-10-5

Handstand push-ups

Ring dips

Push-ups


Scenario 2- For an athlete that has plenty of experience, but still struggles with each of these movements. This athlete may benefit from reducing the degree of difficulty, of each movement, and potentially reducing reps. A potential workout option may be:

21-15-9 or 15-12-9

Handstand push-ups with feet on box and body in a piked position.

Band-assisted ring dips

Band-assisted push-ups


Scenario 3- For an athlete that is new, de-conditioned, or performing the movements presents a safety concern. This athlete may benefit from movement modifications and potentially movement replacements. When modifying or replacing a movement try to ensure that similar movement patterns and functions are being preserved. A potential workout option for this athlete may be:

15-12-9 or 15-10-5

Dumbbell shoulder press or piked push-up with feet on the floor

Feet assisted bar dips or bench dips

Push-ups from knees or incline push-ups

Champions Club Scaling Notes


RANT:

If my memory serves me right, this was the first-ever hero workout posted on the main site. I am almost positive Michael, JT, and Murph were the first 3. And I do know that this was my mentor, Brian Hassler’s first-ever CrossFit workout in 2005 (he posted as brian t). And lastly, I know this is the absolute opposite of how a sane person would want to design a workout (push with your arms, then push with your arms again, then push with your arms again. For time.). That is precisely why this medicine is so good for you. Most of the time CrossFit blends just the perfect amount of one movement with the perfect amount of another movement to accomplish work in a way that you would never be able to. But every now and then it really helps to do some less-than-ideal stuff. Goodbye, sweet delts.


I SHOULD TRY THIS RX’D IF: I am dead-set on honoring JT and have the capacity to do at least 3 in a row of all the movements. You can still honor the hero by giving a quick note about him, and then modifying the workout to fit your needs.


ORGANIC SCALES:

Strength — as is

Stamina — as is

Endurance — see group version

Flexibility — also as is , just go low on the rings and pull your shoulders back on the push-ups


NEUROLOGICAL SCALES:

Coordination — kipping hspu and kipping ring dips

Accuracy — spin the rings out (externally rotate) on the top of every rep, spin the elbow-pit forward on every push-up (same, external rotation), and don’t count reps on the hspu if your head smashes on the ground

Agility — probably not this workout, play a sport then do this after

Balance — as is


GROUP VERSION: we’ll probably go with the classic team workout style on this one: partner 1 runs 200m while partner 2 practices the reps of the exercises (first 8 minutes — hspu, second 8 minutes — ring dip, third 8 minutes — push-up). I would like to see handstand hold and ring hold subs made for hspu and ring dips. Stay off the knees on push-ups, snaking is fine as long as your belly and butt are squeezed.


WARMUP:

Literally anything from the abs-down


GENERAL FEAR LEVEL (1=REST DAY, 10=PR-DRIVEN FGB): 4. Since I’ve never had the capacity to go really fast on this (just got sub-10 for the first time ever — thanks to all the HS practice we’ve been doing) I look at this as a For Quality day.

I'll be doing this after some heavy push presses. Probably something like this:

9-7-5 strict hspu

15-12-9 strict ring dips

21-15-9 pushups


what do you think?


Also, if you dont mind me asking, why do you usually use the endurance scale for your group class?

Basem, you're a beast if you're doing that after push press! That looks like a good scale. I like how you adjusted the reps.


The endurance scale usually gives us a good mix of everything, plus keeps the intensity high. We have some big groups at the moment, so the endurance versions work pretty well.

well to be fair my idea of heavy is 3x5@175.



Gotcha.

INTENDED STIMULUS

.

Hero day! If you have not done J.T., you are in for a treat. This is both a relentless and a beautifully designed workout. Today you will move your body by pressing with your arms in a full range of angles. While reading this and without moving, move your arms as if you were doing a dip, then as if you were doing a push-up, and then as if you were doing a handstand push-up. If you track the position of your elbow and how it relates to your shoulder you will understand what I mean. This is the first thing you need to take into consideration when scaling. The second thing to take into consideration is the number of reps. It does not seem like much but since we are only pressing you should look at the total number of reps, which is 135. This is more of a 10-12 minute effort than a sprint. Your scaling should be aimed to preserve the geometry of the pushes while being able to handle the volume of reps at a fair pace. This is an excellent opportunity to practice experiencing muscle fatigue in gymnastic movements. The key: don't go to failure, break early and often from the beginning. Scale options to follow.

Should we wear a vest if we have it? It doesn’t specify, but that’s standard for Heroes, no?

No vest for this one---unless of course you want to...

vests are not necessarily standard for a Hero wod.

Globo scale: first hero of the year and one of the originals. HSPU: if you can't do them because your Globo doesn't allow it sub 1/1 heavy dumbbell shoulder presses. Ring dips: use a TrX if rings are not available. Otherwise sub 2/1 bar dips.
