Conquering your fear of the box jump


  • JuanG.

    this wod looks insane ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Coach P

    Last night the Box did a little something different. It had a good amount of leg work to sub for the 400’s.
    Pull-ups: AMAP in two sets
    Subways: 50 minus the amount of pull-ups done
    Box step-ups: with 2 kettlebells in rack
    Dex 33:55 30 pull-ups
    Brett 22:36 84
    Chris 26:04 47
    Kurt 27:36 49
    Justin 27:10 49
    Brendan 16:34 85
    Josh 28:54 48
    Carlos 18:13 89
    B2D2 20:10 77 (this is a new Brendan who can tear it up)
    And Erica, who had to sub because of the wing, and you do not want to know what she did in 14:25 because not many could repeat it, held a Superman in the gluteham for 1:34 minutes, after.
    And Moon took it to the street for 400’s with very impressive times.

    Next Friday Rest Night Dinner
    April 11 (Three Weeks From Today)
    Post Suggested Locations.

  • Coach P: Want to explain a ‘subway’?

  • That’s one of his secret moves like the “pull and squeeze.”

  • Kurt

    That workout was tough and certainly not what I expected on a run day. Showed me that I need to learn to actually kip, rather than the Frankenstein’s monster of dead-hang/frog kick/swing/kip BS that I do.
    I liked the Crossfit Watertown article, but poking around on the site I found this article:
    It talks about the three types of outfielders as an analogy to the three types of CF’ers. Don’t know if this was posted before on this site, but it is worth the read. A snip from the article in describing the third type of person:

    It is not enough to catch the ball when it is hit towards you; you have to want the ball more than anyone else on the field. Why are we so captivated by the “Nasty Girls” video? Because Nicole Carroll never abandons her effort, no matter how much her body starts to fail: we are watching effort personified. There simply is no quit in her. The psychologist William James once said, โ€šร„รบThe decisive thing about us is not strength, intelligence, or wealth: these are things we carry. The real question posed to us is the effort we are willing to make.โ€šร„รน

  • Jeff

    dinner suggestions:
    3 St & B Ave
    Big portions for < $12. Nice vegetable selection. Seating for large groups may be iffy.
    46 St bw 5th Ave and 6th Ave
    Also large portions (can get multiple big chunks of yellowtail collars for < $20!)
    Seating may also be iffy for large groups.

  • Moon

    I would love it if the rest day dinner were at a Churrascaria. I am not particular as to which one or where, but in principle, I want to have some sort of red/green signage that I must flip in order to control the meat flow.
    Potential candidates: http://www.yelp.com/search?find_desc=Churrascaria&ns=1&rpp=10&find_loc=New+York+NY

  • Brendan

    moon, that’s the greatest idea ever.

  • xuan mai

    I’ve heard that Churrascaria Plataforma is pretty good. The only downside is the price: $55/person.
    Of course, you can eat meat until you drop, face first, into your plate.
    I vote for meat.

  • Jeff

    You can eat at Brazil Grill for ~$35 (including tip, not including drinks). Seating should be fine as long as we make reservations.
    Brazil Brazil (also more budget friendly than Plataforma) has even more dining space.

  • Plataforma is great but expensive. That price doesn’t include the drinks and often it takes forever to seat a big party.
    There are some good churascarias in queens.

  • Brendan

    those pictures from FGB look like morgue ID photos.

  • Kurt

    I can speak to the wonder that is Plataforma, but it is crazy expensive. I would, however, dispute Xuan Mai’s contention that they will give you meat until you collapse face first into the table. As long as the shaker is still on green, I am certain they will continue to deliver BBQ steak and other tasty treats to your bloated corpse. I count this as a large point in their favor.
    Of course, I will be in San Francisco for the next Friday rest day, so my vote means little.
    Jack- I can’t make Salsa tonight as my grandmother is in the hospital. You are certainly welcome to go anyway, but I will also give you a heads up the next time they are going, which will hopefully be after the GF gives me some refresher lessons.
    Have a great Holiday weekend, guys.

    20:52 HSPU’s 3.2 inches less than full ROM (head to 25 lb + 15 lb plates)

  • martin

    Holy crap, I look as bad as I felt in that picture!

  • AllisonNYC

    25:00 terrible
    The HSPUs got a million times better as the workout went on. deeper, faster & easier
    The pull-ups got worse. But they were all quality except a few at the end. The 13s and 15s took way too much time.
    5 seconds after I was finished I started back squatting.
    135 x 5 warm up
    155 x 4
    175 x 1
    185 x 1
    190 x 1
    195 x 1
    200 x 1
    205 x 1!!
    PR x 5. Thanks to David for spotting me ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Justin

    The Plataforma down in Tribeca is not quite as busy as the one in Midtown, but still as pricey, and yes very good (the Caipirinhas are the shit as well)… There is a Churascaria around the corner from us in Astoria that is good and less expensive. But since no one probably once to come to Queens, thats out.
    As far as other suggestions, Ill throw out Daisy’s Mays… It has pretty good meat as well.

  • Jack Bauer

    20:50 (sub HSPU with 75lb strict press) and ring l-pullups. the subs didn’t make it anymore fun.
    Great 12:30 class-especially to the Monkey Squad (Kevin, Smallville, Titus, and myself) and our big gorilla leader Keith for all the insane old school strongman lifts we attempted AFTER the workout. Crossfit clearly isn’t making us smarter.
    Daisy Mays!

  • Jeff

    I posted links for these other churrascarias earlier, but they’re stuck in limbo.
    Park & 26 (?)
    Carne Vale
    B Ave b/w 3 and 4 St
    I haven’t been to either.

  • Chris Gaskin

    Pike push-ups
    tuck pull ups

  • michelle

    21 something. hspu to blue yoga box for first 15 hspu (unroken-mr. tyler) round and last 3 rounds-2 abmats in b/w
    did same ring subs off box that greg did as well -neck in neck last round ! Titus you owe me more coaching next round! Greg smoked me.
    was a great workout. who knew splits against the walls would be my favorite part?

  • 10;55

  • Kevin

    Todays wod 13:04 as rx’d
    Strong work today 1230 class!! It was a blast, especially afterwards with the old time strongman lifts. Lunch was great too. Afterwards, I was so tired at work I could barely stand. All I wanted to do was sleep. I think I might have dozed off while standing behind the bar.

  • Jeff

    I just put in my deposit for Boston. Are we still considering group transportation? What about group rate discounts at a nearby hotel?
    Nothing to do at work so I arrived at 4:45.
    warm up
    wall ball pyramid, 10 reps each of 6#, 10#, 14#, 20#, 14#, 10#, 6#
    kettlebell warmup:
    10 1 pood snatches (5 right, 5 left)
    10 1.5 pood snatches (5 right, 5 left)
    12 2 pood American swings
    15 2.5 pood Russian snatches
    jailhouse 10
    WOD 18:49
    (felt really out of practice for the HSPUs)
    deadlift practice

    Tabata push ups
    all 8 rounds of 10 reps
    bw 154

  • Jeff

    I meant Russian swings. Do Russian snatches exist? (I’ll leave that dangling.)

  • Joseph_b

    Done at home, time 29:50
    HSPU’s with heels against wall wearing socks, some where full range(head to ground) some partial, lost track. All PU’s where L-Pullups.

  • 30:46
    Happy with my version of L-pullups, but HSPU’s were quickly down to singles, as always.
    And speaking of “Singles”, the evening classes were rockin’ out like it was 1992! The last time I listened to Alice in Chain’s “Dirt” from beginning to end I couldn’t do HSPU’s, that’s for sure.

  • 14 minutes even, although there was some fumbling with the watch on Keith’s part. Whatever. And as Jack said, you can’t have us 4/5 nutballs in one gym at the same time, cuz we end up doing some crazy shit.

  • Brett_nyc

    the hspu were awful. Got 10 straight forehead to floor, then pretty much all singles the rest of the way through.
