30 mins of my regular SLIPS

7:10 m/c @3% and 13.5kph

The m/c is much easier on my knees as my torso stays more erect and I carry my weight in my hips more but I'm a little slower.

6:56 on the road uphill the first 1/3, downhill for a bit then a 100m uphill “sprint” finish.

Made up from yesterday. Will do 4 day cycle.

beforehand did Bryan’s general part 1 then Juan’s slips, then Bryan’s specific warmups.

I don’t think this is a PR but it’s the best I’ve done in a long time by 20 seconds or more.

This workout was a little intimidating to adapt for my at-home adaptive athletes. I'm just never sure how they're going to receive something like this outside of our live classes.

BIG thanks to Eric and Bryan for their posts - you definitely helped me lay out a plan that I know my GRIT folks are going to be pumped about. I always know I can come to the comments here to set me on the right track.

Core Work: (stolen/adapted from Bryan Rosen)

5 sets:

:30 left plank / left lean

:30 reverse plank / overhead hold

:30 right plank / right lean

:30 front plank / seated plank

Rest 2 min

Aerobic Endurance Test: (stolen/adapted from Eric O'Connor)

For time:

1 mile run

2k row

5k bike

500 double-unders / 1000 single-unders

500 ea lateral hops or steps

7 minutes of burpees OR 100 reps for time

Stretching: (again from Bryan Rosen)


Calf R / Neck R

Calf L / Neck L

Forward fold

Chest opener

SLIPS , 30sec work/30sec rest x 20 min:

  • Advanced frog stand, balancing over straight elbow.
  • Standing Tall high support hold on rings (this must have a simpler name).
  • Handstand hold
  • Adductor stretch + Child pose with box

rested 5 min

x time: 70 burpees, touching pullup bar every rep. 5:44

That had to be higher than 6 inch jump, had to jump twice many many times.

rest 5 min

Max set of butterfly pullups : 28

After today I decided fasting and training, while comvenient is not enough. I decided I will do 1 week quality focus followed by 3 weeks of quality with quantity (zoned quality food prescription). With hope of getting my stamina back where it belongs. Back where I deserve it.

Great letruce burguer dish!

Thank you CrossFit for a great 3 day cycle

Did it today! Delicious, nutritious, simple and so light on the stomach.

Been doing CrossFit since 2009 and I still catch myself in “bad” eating weeks.

My dad started trying to avoid ice cream by making a healthy home made dessert and he told me it has no sugar in it. It was delicious. We were eating them like there was no tomorrow. I sometimes film myself while working out.

Also, I sleep in a very small room, and I sleep alone most of the times. So my gasses were nobody problem but my own.

Maybe thats why first thing I noticed was in a max set of string ring dips on tape my body looked kind of full, like not at all fat, but given that I had been training while fasted, that full kind of look seemed strange. Then and only then I reflected on the gasses.

Besides being funny and smelly, they were, too, kind of strange. So that night I went to check the healthy home made dessert recipe in detail.

Aha! refined sugars everywhere. No, he was not adding sugar, but oh boy I had found the silent assasin of my tinder profile and the creator of questionable body odor. I politely told my dad I would have to decline from now on his polite request and since then I have been doing mixed fruits with cream and maybe some nuts as a last snack before coking to my small room. Guess what.

This healthy cooking and no sneaky parts, and no bloating whatsovever.

This realization made me question myself. I had been rationalizing not doing the full CrossFit nutrition prescription since last tried it ... (shame on me) in 2011 (quality and quantity: the dreaded “paleo-zone” or “Rx +” prescription; or simply the CF prescription for optimal fitness) with several explanations.

It was too hard.

It was self evident that if fasting and training was not giving me more results in body composition, adding food to the equation could not improve it. And lots of procrastination because while not doing it myself I was a strong proponent to athletes everywhere, to try it.

So inside I knew this was the qay to go.

Recently with all this “bad eating week” and the coming back to the path of the force, I determined that I would do one week of quality focus and then focused 3 weeks of quantity.

And I would cycle this 3-1 following coaches advice to check back on quality after a couple of weeks. And to go back to fasting which felt amazingly convenient, but my stamina and strength are not where I would want them to be.

This sort of confession/ acknowledgement/testimonial is my why of thanking CrossFit and giving back some thoughts to the community that decided that easy will no longer suffice.

The boys and I used a 30 min yoga routine designed for hip opening and splits work. The video also included some inversion, and planks so win win win!

Thoroughly warmed up the ankles, hammies, glutes and back with some drills siphoned from Chris Henshaw before the run.

This is one of my favorite (and most dreaded) benchmarks to test. It's a classic test of fitness that will put you in the pain-cave and I think that everyone should know their times on it! When it comes to scaling.....don't. Even if you need to walk and it will take a while.....go get it done!

If you are unable to be outside to run here are some possible alternatives.:

1) 2k row

2) 5k bike

3) 500 Double unders for time

4) Open 1 Workout 12.1: 7 minutes of burpees (I don't love this option for today, but it can fit if need be)

5:35, which is still a PR at that distance. Will have to re-do the mile someday soon.

Commented on: Elements of Science: Models & Predictions

This is an incredible distillation of a very complex topic. I’ve read other works that said far less with many more words!

One thing missing here (possibly on purpose) is falsification. We often hear that a hypothesis or model is invalid unless it is falsifiable. This idea was first proposed by Karl Popper. Since then, it has become widely accepted.

Popper classified ideas binarily as either true or false. Whereas here, models are useful if they make better than chance predictions up to a known error rate. One thing that Popper and his followers (Kuhn, Lakatos, Feyerabend) believed is that no amount of tests or confirmatory evidence could ever prove a theory true. It would require an infinite number of experiments to do so. By extension, any piece of confirmatory evidence does not even strengthen the validity of a theory.

How could a working scientist ever possibly make progress under such conditions?

If you want to read a more eloquent and comprehensive critique of Popper, CrossFit Health has linked to a book by David Stove that goes into great detail on this topic.

Globo/Home scale: As rxed for 95% of you. Go all out on the run. Find a trail, sidewalk or track and get it. If necessary due to injuries or being in Alaska or a sub/aircraft carrier, sub a 2000 meter row, 100 cal assault/echo bike, 4000m bike erg, or 100 burpees. If using a treadmill use a slight incline.

SLIPS as rxed.

Champions Club Scaling Notes


I ran track all 4 years in high school and did not to a single thing at practice other than sit on the amazing high jump mats. Outside of track, though, I did CrossFit. My mile time went from 5:03 to 4:44 over the course of one year, then improved to 4:42 my senior year. I didn't do the mile this time in favor of a track/sprinting workout with one of our athletes, but I am curious to see what it would be. Only I'm not really. If you have the capacity to race (not pace) for 4 laps, this is something that will not feel very good at all when you are done. If you treat the running in most CrossFit workouts like that, you'll set yourself up for a good mile time. Trust yourself that you can keep a faster pace than you are comfortable with, and be ready for the rush of OOOWWWWWW that comes at the finish line. Also SLIPS are good.


4 rounds for time of:

Run 400 meters

:15 handstand

:30 L-sit

:1:00 plank


Do I want this to be a test or do I want this to be a training tool


Locomotion - running, unilateral loading, using gravity, lots of reps


A testing number.


If you want to test then test. If you want to train, you can break the thing into chunks of 200s, 400s, or 800s, or even intervals by time, not distance. Rest between sets until you can have a conversation without breathing heavy between words. Or mix in the SLIPS like the New to CrossFit version.


As is.

Ouch! A mile run is a formidable test for your fitness. It should hurt like a 6-minute AMARAP of burpees and wall-balls. If you can't find that level of intensity here, that's awesome, you just found a hole in your fitness. Is it your running mechanics? Is it the relationship of your aerobic to anaerobic capacity? Is it your mindset? Whatever the answer is, it will give you a tangible goal to work on. Workouts like this one remind you that the most productive workouts are those in which the intensity depends fully on your effort. For us crossfitters it is easy to forget that. We often hide behind workouts that we can perform, but for which we can't let the intensity depend entirely on our effort. Athletes that think the distance might get in the way of them finding that intensity can choose a time they feel confident they can run continuously at a faster pace. Today, find the struggle, enjoy the struggle!


Revert to previous exercise if skill is not there yet.
