B looks like westside...fun!! thanks coach!

Anonymous said...

can someone explain the chin up procedure. It is a choice, or do we do 5 sets of all of them

OPT said...

anon, do 3 strict, do not come off the bar, then do 6 kipping, do not come off the bar, then do 9 CTB chin ups, then come off...if you cannot do them unbroken...split them up as needed, work on the weak links in that chain...cool?

Chad said...

Question...what is the difference between GHD Raises and GHD Back Extensions?

Is it the positioning of the hip as in hip extension, hip/back ext and back extension. Like what Crossfit teaches.

Thx for the help.

OPT - Thanks for the chin explanation. OUCH, but thanks :)

A1. 215/225/235x2/235x2/235x3PR
A2. UB for all. Chest 2 Bar strict pullups for sets 3-5
B. 230 lbs
C1. UB
C2. UB
Still very sore and tired from previous cycle but still managed a front squat 3RM PR. GHD raises are feeling much stronger.
Experimenting with increased Glutamine intake. I was doing 3 grams pre wod and 3 grams post wod. Now doing Coach's RX. 10g upon waking. 5g pre wod/5g post wod. 10g bedtime. hard part is timing it around meals so Im getting it all in on an empty stomach. How important is the empty stomach for absorption of Glutamine??

C1&C2 switched betw GHD situps and TTB because of not getting access to bar all sets. brought down reps at GHD raises - hammies still very tight after last week.

That's my 5th PR in less than 20 days, although its not so hard when you have so far to go with squat strength. Still, you gotta start somewhere. Thanks again Coach

Joel B. said...

I'm off Big Dawgs for a few months. All my mental and physical training energy will be taken up by fire academy. I'll look forward to returning probably in May or June. Thanks for all the programming, coach. And for being so welcoming, pack. I am as prepared as I can be, now...thank you!

Juls said...

Need help with my hands, thought they would get better over time but I tear, bleed, you name it, it's frustrating - I don't want to use it as an excuse but I know I could get in at least a couple more reps if I was not in so much pain - tried so many different things, nothing helps :) ...was considering ordering these: http://www.newgrip.com/crossfit.html opinions, help...please!!!!

Chris Dunkin said...

Had a cold over the weekend, and slept a lot and skipped Sunday's wod, so tried to limit the weight a bit on A1, and B.
Used the weight belt for the last two sets of A1. Would not call the T2B unbroken as I had to adjust tempo during the last two sets, but did not come off the bar.

Grant said...

@ OPT @ 6:30AM
A1) FS @ 200/205/215/225/230

C1) Rx'd (tried one @ supinate but not for me. Pronate only for this ROM
C2)GHD raises 10 only 4 sets & had to go. Feeling more comfortable with these now. Do what you are bad at.

Chris Dunkin said...

Justin- Congrats on the event this past weekend. Looks like it was well attended and well put together.

Craig said...

I watched the GHD raise video and noticed the legs were lower than the hips, is this critical or is horizontal okay?

A2. Fast and easy.

B. Fast and easy. Hook grip.

C1. Slow and steady. Still haven't figured out how to kip these.

Ali - nice work on the front squats!!!

Lisa M said...

Everything in the workout felt good other than my front squat, it felt very weak. pr is 250 x 3.

Chris Fodera said...


A1. 185x3, 195x3, 205x3, 215x3, 225x2
A2. Unbroken
B. 295
C1. Unbroken
C2. Unbroken

PWO: 32gP (MRM shake), 1 scoop Refuel
60 min later: chicken breast, apple, almond butter

A1. First time Front Squatting since hurting my knee so I wanted to keep it fairly light compared to known front squat weights for similar reps/sets. Was told by people watching me from different angles that I was deeper on my left side in the squat than my right (was closing the angle b/t butt and ankle more on Right than Left). I made a conscious effort to have a symmetrical stance from that point forward and to stay even on my drive out of the hole. Was told it looked better, but was still slightly there. Knee didn't hurt and it felt good to get some weighted squats in.
A2. These felt really good. Went with ButterFly for the kips and the Chest-To-Bars were really high (between UpperAbs and Nipples).
B. Felt really smooth and explosive on the way up.
C1. Used a thin bar for this so the grip was a pain in the butt, but overall OK. It takes me about 3-4 just to get into a groove.
C2. Last set I felt, but still OK.

Picked up some L-Glutamine and some Wobenzym PS online today, so I hope that coupled with some appropriate care they'll help get my right knee back into the fight 100%.

Stephen Flamm said...

A1. 3 x 95, 135, 165, 2 x 185, 205
A2. unbroken
B. 245
C1. 15, 10, 8, 7, 7
C2. unbroken

Still protecting the knee, so went light-ish and carefully. I think I'll need to take a little time off from squats, box jumps, and double-unders and let this thing heal. Pull-ups were easier and faster than I thought they would be. Deadlifts were fast and did not bother the knee. I mixed my grips throught. Toes-to-bar were horrible - big weakness of mine. Subbed reverse hypers for the GHRs.

Evan Z said...


Not sure if someone got back to you on your ripped hands. I would look at doing a gymnastic tape job if you need something. See, http://rifsblog.blogspot.com/2007/05/how-to-tape-your-hands.html
I also used a liquid bandaid when I had the problem to keep infection out while training. Since then I just make sure I file my hands. My wife hates that I use her file to do it but I have not had problems since.

A1. 205x3/215x3/225x3/230fail/215x3

C1. Very broken I suck at these
gonna be in my warmup trying to get kipping
C2. Used a barbell to hold legs and did them this way felt burn in hamstrings but not the same I'm sure.

Notes: tie PR on front squat probably could've been better had not been at tempo and fresh.

Justin Flynn said...

Thanks Chris for the shout out. Yea the contest was a blast to put on. We had a HUGE turnout. Orange Countys finest CrossFitters got their asses handed to them by OPTs programming. Haha!! The second wod was 20 unbroken chins, 500m Row, 20 unbroken chins, 500m row, 20 unbroken chins. About half the field DNFd in the 15 min time limit as MANY failed on getting their final set of 20 unbroken. Thing is for the Big Dawgs on here I know that would not have been an issue as we do so much unbroken training and pullups are one of our bread and butters along with DUs.
Event was amazing but took me away from my own training for the last 10 days. I am back on it tonight and will post later. Good to be back. ooooouuuuu!!!

squats felt weak (3rm is 285). 1st set felt so weird i stayed at the same weight. still pretty sore from that god awful back squat ladder. deadlift was fine. toes to bar were tough. if soreness is an indicator of a good program then this is the best ever.

B1. 210lbs felt light and fast

C1. Finally got my Kip figured out! I learned it by watching BROPT in the chipper wod from the 2009 games. That dude made them look easy

C2. Used the sub that Unit posted the other day. Holy shit those are hard. All sets broken and many reps I just couldn't control the eccentric and I would belly flop.

Thanks Unit.

My word verification is hotyman. Now that's funny.

Front squats felt heavy, but good. Pull ups turned out better than expected. Felt really good. Deadlift was based off very old deadlift 1RM, not really sure what it is now. TTB hurt my hands pretty bad and the GHD raises felt good.

First time posting in here:
M 31 6' 210 9-10% (higher % due to holidays and recent broken leg)

Absolutely loving these workouts since I found them, reigniting my intensity.

A1 FS: 110/120/125/130/137.5kgx1 (302#) - I was done on the last set
A2 PU's: All unbroken and solid movement. This was my highlight of the day!

B DL: 121kg (266#)

C1 T2B: First 2 unbroken, the rest broken.
C2 GHD Raises: First 2 unbroken, the rest were semi unbroken with short 1 second pauses as needed at the top. Full GHD movement.

Notes: For A, I was solid and felt like a machine. Once I finished round 2 of C, the wheels started to fall off on the toes to bar. Performed them on a low hanging bar so legs had to bend as they approached the floor. I'm not sure how much that played into it but the back is shot once again.

Stefani said...

A1. 85(3)/85(3)/90(3)/95(3)/100(3)
A2. All sets broken with band assist on the strict & C2B.
B. 125
C1. 15/15/10+5/9+6/6+9
C2. Subbed good mornings all 5 sets unbroken 45#BB

Front squats are not easy for me so my concern was maintaining tempo and form. Very happy with 100#. Chin ups were stronger and easier this week than last week so hopefully I'll soon lose the band. What can I say I love deadlifts so that was my favorite part of the workout. T2B were easier than I thought they were going to be even though I had to break them up.

Chad said...

A1. 195 x 3 for all sets
A2. First round unbroken, broke with CTB in all rounds after that.
B. 245...felt good and easy
C1. First 2 rounds unbroken then broke 10/3/2, 8/4/3, 8/4/3
C2. First 3 unbroken then 10/5, 10/5

A1: Front squat is a huge weakness and limiting factor in squat cleans. I think I could have gone heavier but felt some rounding in the back. Don't think it's a flexiblity issue
A2. Tried kipping PU's for everything as opposed to butterfly. I committed to butterflies 6 months ago and now kips feel weird, hard to put together.

Evan Z said...

I did not get to train today. My father in law is in the hospital and it has been pretty tough on my wife. I hope to get the double in tomorrow but it might be touch and go for the next few days.
Just wanted you to know that I am not MIA.

Lisa M said...

Evan Z sorry to hear about your father in law i hope he has a speedy recovery

my mom bought me the most ridiculous Christmas present called a pedi egg. I am sure it is off some infomercial but holy crap does it work well. It actually works too good to the point that I pretty much took all my calous off by mistake and my hands are super sensitive. So I strongly recomend it just don't get too carried away!! I use it too maintain my calous and keep the "lipping" downso they don't tear and it works like a charm

Heavy Evy said...

A2.ub,broke on rep 8 CTB,broke on rep 6 CTB rest of way. Just need to smooth out the technique, too much wasted energy.

C1.To quote Garfield "ARRRGGGHHH", grip was shot, got through it, but it was slow.
C2. UBx5 these felt great.
Got the wod in just as they were shutting off the lights! Bring on the double tommorow!

Brandon said...

A1. 205/225/245/255/265 - all sets of 2
A2. All sets broken. Tweaked something in L shoulder with C2B, so I scaled these back. Stretch, Trigger Point, extra Fish Oil post WOD to cut down recovery time
B. 275 - felt really easy.
C1. Broken at 9/9/9/8/9
C2. Unbroken and getting easier


Sam said...

A1. 152# x 3 all 5 sets unbroken
A2. 3 and 6 unbroken all sets then did ctb in sets of 3 all sets.
B. 132#
C1. All broken, first 3 sets 10 unbroken then the remaining 5. The last 2 sets broken into 8 and 7.
C2. Same pattern as C1.

Our gym only has one GHD machine and there were three of us workingout. C1 and C2 ended up requiring more rest in between sets so that everyone could complete their GHD raises. Rest time ended being more like 75sec.

Jason Buzzard said...

A1: 3-205#x5
B: 245# (max is 405#)
C1:Broke at 10 each round

FS felt heavy and I didn't know if I could maintain the tempo if I went up.
Pull ups, first two sets unbroken. The last 3 I broke at 5 on the CTB's. Just wasnt getting a high enough pull to hit my chest. I dont know if that is more of a mental or physical weakness with that.
Dead lifts were smooth and easy.
Toes to bar all broke at 10 and were difficult.

Chad Hall said...

A1: 195(3), 225(3), 225(3), 225(3) 225(3)
A2: all unbroken

B: 291lbs

C1: 15, 15, 10-4-1, 7-4-4, 6-4-5
C2: unbroken negative hamstring curls

Notes: Front squats were decent tempo, sometimes a little fast or slow on the way down. Really happy with the pullups, didn't think I would do them unbroken. Deadlift felt fine. Grip was fried by T2B and that was big factor. I actually find K2E more difficult I think. No GHD yet for hamstrings. Still worked hard on them with the negatives. Feeling better.

Caro L said...

A1 115lbs (3)*5

Shane and Karen said...

A1. Front Squat @ 20X1; 2-3 x 5; rest 180 sec - All sets of 3: 225/235/245/245/245
A2. Chin ups [3 strict/6 kipping/9 chest to bar] x 5; rest 180 sec - All unbroken
B. Dead Lift @ 12X1 - 60% 1Rm; 8 sets of 2; rest 45 sec b/t sets - All with 245
C1. 15 toes to bar x 5 sets; rest 45 sec - Unbroken except the last set which was 6/5/4
C2. 15 GHD Raises x 5 sets; rest 45 sec - All unbroken, but I subbed back extensions as my "ghd" doesn't allow me to do raises. I intend to order a true ghd this weekend.

Was pretty rushed in getting this one done and it showed in my attitude and performance. My squating is still feeling very weak for some reason. Was running late getting ready to go out to dinner with the family for my brother's last night in town before heading back out to college. Grip was still a major issue. Most of this workout felt strangely easy while still challenging. I didn't really feel any fatigue except for my grip for the toes to bar. I had to break up my last set of toes to bar simply to keep from falling to the ground in the kip (my bar is 9ft in the air). Really hope my grip benefits from all this torture. It is very frustrating for that to be my biggest limiting factor lately.
