    A: 195-205-205
    B: Pullups 13-14-12 (parallette jumps)

  • reisbaron

    Taking it easy this week, as my left knee isn’t 100%.

    A: 225 – 275 – 315
    B: 15 – 10 – 7 on pullups – subbed max situps to avoid jumping…went for 50 per round but awful cramping kept sets between 30 & 40. Did 100 total, and while it doesn’t make much sense that this workout was for time, I took 10 mins even…

    • Anthony

      315 is taking it easy?? impressive!
      225-225-225—focused on depth today

      9/8/9 chin ups
      Used new rope today–still not consecutive on dubs—2 singles then a dub…not sure of my time…

      • reisbaron

        I was ready to stop at 225 but I think squatting was less of a threat than jumping. I was also using TK bands to support my knees and keep them warm. Forgot I had them…highly recommended – http://bit.ly/QOz7Z3

  • Zephan

    A: 205, 205, 225
    B) 41 pull ups w/ double-unders: 7 minutes flat.

    B: 30/10/6, 4:50

  • AndyK

    A: 205, 225, 245(got to parallel on 245, should have been a little deeper)
    B: Pullups: 20, 15, 17 with 50 dubs – Was not keeping track of time on this one, didn’t seem to make sense.

    The (not so) secret society link posted above by Allison is a MUST read. It’s written by the marketing director for Rich Froning on our community and the pursuit of better.

    I didn’t really understand this workout

  • stevenrerickson

    Really? just snatches tomorrow? that’s it? Happy to see them mine need work but isn’t there more?

    • Brad Hoover

      Well it may depend on the coach, but I bet we’ll have plenty of work prior to the 7 snatch series. Perhaps the Burgener warmup. Perhaps some sort of progression such as doing power snatches from the thigh, then knee, then shin, then floor. Perhaps throw some OHS in there. Given how technical the snatch is and how much practice is necessary to improve I would love to have one class every week focus solely on it. But that’s just me.

    • reisbaron

      After typical warmup and drills you’ll have 40 minutes at best to establish a max snatch. That is NUH-thing, though a dream compared to what we get for most lifts. This is an enormous opportunity…see it for what it is.

      • stevenrerickson

        Everyone has different goals in this thing, mine is not necessarily to become an Olympic lifter. Just expressing my view here. As I said happy to work on the snatch. No need to lecture me about seeing things for what they are. If you knew me you would know that.

        • Hari Singh

          Given that your comment was expressed in the form of multiple questions, it is hardly surprising that you got a response that addresses those questions.

          • stevenrerickson

            The response to the questions is fine, the editorializing about how I should or should not approach my work out is none of his business. Like I said if he knew me or if you knew me you would already understand I see work outs for what they are, I love the work outs, and I love the community of people I work out with. Why the two of you feel it’s necessary to tell me how to act is beyond me. It

          • Hari Singh

            Do you see your original comment as lacking an editorial component?

          • stevenrerickson

            My initial comment was asking if there is more to the wod, than just snatch. Brad gave an excellent response. It’s what I was wondering since in the past there have been snatch work outs that included other modalities as well. As I also said in my original post I was happy to see the work out. Why do you immediately assume this to be a criticism?

          • Hari Singh

            You were simply asking (four times) whether we had forgotten to post any additional parts of the WOD?

          • stevenrerickson

            Yes. As I said, if you knew me you would know that I am the guy who shows up early, chats with others, picks up tape and chalk others have left behind, I listen intently to what the coaches are saying, I welcome their input. I am the guy who instead of just getting a pvc pipe for myself gets one for everyone else. I am the guy who cleans up my space and then looks around to see who needs help cleaning up. I am the guy who puts a friends dislocated shoulder back in place, I am the guy who shows up to see a class mate being harassed outside the box by a cabbie who is on the phone with the cops because his credit card machine is not working and my friend cannot pay him, so I pay the cab fare. I am the guy who will be encouraging the last person in class to finish and will cheer when no one else is. I am the guy who brings Cassia a t-shirt from a box I’ve just visited, I am the guy in the shower who is talking about what an awesome workout we just did, and talking about how great the coaches are. But you don’t know this about me, you just know that I asked a question, and now you are making all sorts of assumptions about who I am. We should meet each other, because doing this on a board is proving to be unproductive and probably leaving a bad taste in both our mouths.

          • reisbaron

            My comment (please read it again) is strictly in response to a question you asked about a workout. I am not making broad generalizations about your character or your typical actions in the gym. I answered your question and offered some pertinent perspective that in some cases might make people feel better about the WOD. If this is not what you want, simply don’t ask for it. I don’t see how anything I said addressed your behavior as a person in general, or anything outside of the specific WOD at hand.

          • stevenrerickson

            I agree up until the point you said take it for what it is. At that point you became pedantic which was not what I asked for. But this has gone completely off the rails. Crossfit is a sanctuary for me, I guess my lesson here is to not take part in the board conversations. So let’s drop it, no worries, nice work on your snatch today. I stayed way low in an effort to gain technique, Coach Chris did a truly amazing job this morning, don’t know if you ever work out with him, if not he’s excellent and has a lot of knowledge, great communication skills and a real desire to see people improve. All the things you could ask for in a coach.
            Have a great day.

      DREAM WOD

  • Anthony

    A completely random question. In the men’s fitness article which puts CFNYC as a top 10 box it talks about being able to do a rope climb to the 2nd floor. Does such a thing exist?

    • stevenrerickson

      Hey T man I think they meant climb rope On the second floor. But I could be wrong. If it does exist I’ll race you to the top.

    • Hari Singh

      It will exist sometime in the next few months, when the new entrance is created .

      • Anthony

        That is very cool. Looking forward to that. Thanks Hari.
