FireFight Gone Bad by Yours Truly. Oakland Fire Tower 2007.




WOD: 3 Rounds of "Fight Gone Bad"

In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. We've used this in 3 and 5 round versions. The stations are:

1. Wall-ball: 20 pound ball, 10 ft target. (Reps)
2. Sumo deadlift high-pull: 75 pounds (Reps) - We will sub 2P KB
3. Box Jump: 20" box (Reps)
4. Push-press: 75 pounds (Reps)
5. Row: calories (Calories)

The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of "rotate," the athlete/s must move to next station immediately for good score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.




"Training for a fight by running twenty minutes everyday makes perfect sense if you plan on running away from your opponent and know you will be getting a ten minute headstart."

-Coach G.

"Blood On The Rope" by Yours Truly




I thought this workout could use 2 days to digest (We will do it Wednesday 3-19). Follow the link to the CrossFit national site to see what people thought about it.

"Tommy V"

For time:
115 pound Thruster, 21 reps
15 ft Rope Climb, 12 ascents
115 pound Thruster, 15 reps
15 ft Rope Climb, 9 ascents
115 pound Thruster, 9 reps
15 ft Rope Climb, 6 ascents

You may make the following subs:

Women: 95# Thruster
1 V0 redpoint, up and down climb = 1 rope ascent
1 V1 redpoint, up and down climb = 1.5 rope ascent
1 V2 redpoint, up and down climb = 2 rope climb

For those who cannot climb, the sub will be

20 Jumping pull-ups = 1 rope climb. This is not RX'd. Yes, that is 540 jumping pull-ups.

If you are going to climb the rope: DO NOT WEAR SHORTS! or wear LONG Athletic socks!!! Check out the video, at the end you can see the consequences of not protecting your ankles, and this was only 14 rope climbs, not 27! You have been warned.






Simply amazing underground workout video.






And for those not yet familiar with rosstraining.com, prepare to have your mind boggled. This guy's jump rope skills are, in a way, even more impressive than Buddy Lee's!




"CrossFit is in large part derived from several simple observations garnered through hanging out with athletes for thirty years and willingness, if not eagerness, to experiment coupled with a total disregard for conventional wisdom. Let me share some of the more formative of these observations:

1. Gymnasts learn new sports faster than other athletes.
2. Olympic lifters can apply more useful power to more activities than other athletes.
3. Powerlifters are stronger than other athletes.
4. Sprinters can match the cardiovascular performance of endurance athlete even at extended efforts.
5. Endurance athletes are woefully lacking in total physical capacity.
6. With high carb diets you either get fat or weak.
7. Bodybuilders can't punch, jump, run, or throw like athletes can.
8. Segmenting training efforts delivers a segmented capacity.
9. Optimizing physical capacity requires training at unsustainable intensities.
10. The world's most successful athletes and coaches rely on exercise science the way deer hunters rely on the accordion."
