THANK YOU BILL!! Athlete-Boat Builder Bill (leading the pack, above) built these awesome Plyo boxes for us, they are fully weatherproof and are of better quality than any I have ever seen, including those at other affiliates and the ones from BFS.

Bill did not ask for anything in return (that is just the kind of guy he is) but I will be offering him and Matthew some individual sessions (using plyo boxes, natch).

We will be stenciling them up with our new logo (courtesy of James M.) in the near future.

Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you have a 20 #/14# weighted vest, body armor, firefighting gear, etc. wear it. A backpack with weights in it may be substituted, however you may experience some chafing. Proceed at your own risk. The squats, push-ups and pull-ups can be done in any order, and broken as needed (i.e. 20 rounds of 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups, 15 squats AKA "Cindy-Style").

CFEB new Boxless Box

WOD @ GWPC 8-08-08 "Man Overboard"

2 Rounds:

  1. Row 250 Meters
  2. Push-ups
  3. Med Ball Clean 14#
  4. V-Ups
  5. Med Ball Jerk 14#
  6. Supermen
  7. Med Ball Front Squat 20#
  8. Feet Anchored STRICT Sit-Ups
  9. Jump Squats
  10. Burpees

If there are fewer than 10 athletes, the coach will row the extra 250s.

If there are more than 10 athletes, the following exercises will be added:

Mountain Climbers
Dowel Overhead Squats
Dowel Thruster

If there are more than 10 athletes the row distance will be 5K/X/2 where X = # of athletes.

Score is total number of reps. WRITE DOWN YOUR REPS - BRING PAPER AND PEN!!!! There is no score for the rowing.


This is a Version of "Man Overboard" from CrossFit NYC Black Box.

The rower is the 'pace car'.

The time it takes to row is the time you have to do each movement.

Upon completion of the row, the rower yells out "Man Overboard" and the coach calls "Rotate" or "Switch", everyone then moves to the next station.

There is no rest in this workout: as soon as the Coach calls "Rotate" you may start the next exercise. Total score is total reps completed. The row does not count towards points. If you are trying for the highest score, you want to row as fast as possible to prevent others from being able to complete a lot of reps. However the trade-off in metabolic capacity of going full-bore must be considered as well.

Thursday 080807


For time:
150 Wallball shots, 20 pound ball (Women 14)

Sub Thruster 45#/30# or DB Thruster 20#/15#

Lauren and I want to thank Johnny Mac & Brian Mackenzie, all of the CrossFit Affiliates, and the entire CrossFit community for these dream bikes. All of you have blessed us beyond our wildest dreams. We launched this website and program hoping to make a difference for people, but nothing could have prepared us for the love and friendship that has come our way. Thank you!
