re: OT crossfitters- Who's signing up for the open?


That's pretty strong . We did a partner WOD for a fundraising event of Helen+Grace. You did Helen and then Grace. Both partners did the runs but you split all other reps. Based on doing that I think my grace would be around 3:40-4 min

sub 2 is fricking insane!!!!!!!!!

my grip gets me. i can usually get about 12-15 touch and go then start breaking em up. I'm usually just start pressing them out too but i'm lucky with my shoulder strength

We participated in the same event. My partner and I had a time of 8:10, which I was pretty pleased with.

I've done two competitions including one this past weekend where I got my first muscle-up (five of them actually).


Well done! Stick with it! I don't know how your box teaches muscle-ups, but the two most important factors (IMO) are technique and stretching.

With your technique be sure to keep your elbows in as tight as humanly possible. Also, the biggest thing people need to work on with muscle-ups is the transition. Really drive those wrists back and throw that chest forward at the top of your kip.

Also, get as comfortable as possible with the false grip. It feels weird, but it makes the transition exponentially easier as it basically just turns it into a deep dip if done correctly.

I'm a leaner guy who thrives on the self bodyweight exercises as opposed to the brute strength exercises so muscle-ups are my favorite. Right now got a personal best of 10 unbroken .

i got to the 165 but was totally shot so i only got 60 reps which is fine with me considering i had never snatched until that day


I'm not trying to be a dick, but if this is true you should really look into devoting some serious time to Crossfit as you are insanely naturally strong and could absolutely qualify for the Open.

The owner of our box actually came out 1st in the region in that event. 141 burpees in 7 min! Insane!

the issue is that you are using a cheap source of swinging momentum to complete a rep. That isnt a measure of strength, and vastly increases your chance of injury because you are transferring momentum for different planes of motion.


Not true.

As some have mentioned, true dead hang pull-ups are still the end-all be-all for primary strength work. However, kipping pull-ups turns it into a full-body cardio circuit.

Also, if done correctly, and if an individual stretches beforehand properly, there is little risk to the shoulder. Individuals who don't have the required flexibility can absolutely be susceptible to injury early on in their development. It should be up to the trainer to notice this and scale appropriately.

That was always my problem. Finally got the transition down though

Strong work! One of my goals for the year is to string together ten in a row.

our coach is really really good but he's on the smaller side so when the big weights came around, he couldnt keep up quite as well. he's probably only 155-160lbs. fast as hell and has a great motor but just doesnt have the over head strength

a cardio circuit which uses the labrum and shoulder to deliver transfers of momentum...yeah no chance for injury there

quote:

if done correctly,


can you tell me the correct way...I have asked in this thread an no one has explained how yet. I see a lot of videos of kipping that will cause injury due to acceleration placed on muscles not under load, particularly the small stabilization muscles of the shoulder.

re: OT crossfitters- Who's signing up for the open?

thats even worse!!! so when the momentum transfer changes back with gravity to the vertical DOWN...your muscles have to go from no load to max gravity acceleration load?

And you people think this is safe?


Nah, the weight-less description was a poor description. If done correctly, the motion should look similar to a pendulum. That's what most people who initially try kipping pull-ups don't realize. They try to just implement the kip and it will throw their pull-ups completely off-kilt.

While you do have to add in a kip, you also have to add in a press at the top of your pull to push your upper body away from the bar while your legs kip forward. Your center of gravity should always remain roughly at the same location relative to the bar. At the bottom of your pull your legs are back and you bring your chest to the bar, then as you continue your pull you add in the kip, swing your legs forward and push your upper body back. There should never be a true weightless feel.

However, you do realize that almost every single explosive, Olympic lift is designed on a jump-catch cycle right? In the snatch you throw a weight over your head and then catch it. In a jerk you take a bar from a rack position and explosively press it overhead before catching it. How is this any different.

Olympic lifts are shown to increase bone strength, core stability and promote maximum oxygen uptake which is the most important aspect of cardiovascular fitness.
