In other news, as an older person in our young gym full of major athletes, I often lose sight of the point. An article on the affiliate site brought me back this morning: Scaling, it says, “isn’t a dumbing down of CrossFit, it’s the hallmark of great coaching. … If you’re of the mindset that you and those around you MUST go Rx on the WODs, then you need an attitude adjustment. After all, scaling is the norm, not the exception.” Yes. Reply This is awesome Terri and so true! Thank you for sharing! =) Reply Way to go Team RX!!!!! You guys are kicking some major butt!!! On another note….CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS WORKOUT!!! 🙂 Reply Good luck you’ll be amazing;) Reply Did 3 Rds this AM in 25:01 (4:30 minutes faster than the last time I could find from 18 months ago). Reply 28:08 for all 5 rounds. I remember doing this, this past February and could not finish. I am stoked I got through it all!!! Thanks to CrossFit RX! Reply Way to go! You were fighting thru the pain this morning! 8:30 was fun 17:27RX To whom ever does this workout later in the day, don’t cheat your rest, that’s cheating;) also the push ups suck Reply it only took you to do 5 minutes of all that??? Reply Ok Brit here what you do Pull ups- set of 10 two sets of 5 Push ups- set of 10 and 4 sets of 5 Sit ups- unbroken( yours are very very fast, this is where you get me) Squats- unbroken That what I did, you will really like this one and you can FLY!! As far as rest, you have to take all three minutes, because if you do not your over all time changes which means you cheated! And I would suggest writing down your times for ech round- time you finished and time you start again after 3 MINUTES of rest. You’re going to be great Reply i need to make this up-maybe tomorrow i’ll do a double wod day. i was sick the past few days. good job!! Got it now! thanks Reply I would like to do this. Still debating. I have a bruised rib from last weeks bar muscle ups. The pull-ups may aggravate it. Thoughts? Reply You could sub body rows for the pullups… that might be an option. Just make sure you are parallel to the floor to make them challenging (i.e., no incline or minimal incline). The body row is another pulling motion so you are subbing with an appropriate mod. I want to say Kelly let me sub kbs for pullups once but I’m not 100% sure on that… so maybe a second option if the body rows aren’t feasible? Reply Do mods or don’t do it. It isn’t worth an injury Reply I may start it and see. Thx guys Reply Who’s camera took thy picture, it’s perfect. What kind of camera is it, mine is broken. Reply I think it was probably just a regular camera. We’ve grown accustomed to the blurry cell phone shots on the blog. Reply A regular camera! I have to get one of those;) Reply LOL! Reply Jud, I wouldn’t. Don’t do anything to upset the healing of a rib. Recover, then go back at it. Reply I’ve been avoiding Barbara since May 2010, when it took me 30:22 to do three rounds (assisted pull ups and knee push ups). Today: 4 rounds in 36:45 (same mods except the first round was hand-release). Progress! p.s. to Amy L: 17:27?!!! Holy cow THAT’S FAST. Reply I have this theory about “benchmark workouts” – the longer the name the harder it is. So Barbara, you better watch out because my name is longer and you just motivated me to earn a benchmark naming… 38:04 – Barbara is a B Reply I mean 36:04. Dang math after a workout Reply Barbara 32:40 for 5 rounds. We were aiming for Amy Levens style which translates to the fastest of the fast. But alas tonight it was not meant to be…. Reply 28:10 All strict pull-ups. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
