    Avoid Bad Form
    What good are all those swinging and swaying motions during your barbell curls if you‚Äôre not intending to audition for “So You Think You Can Dance?” ***Using hip thrust momentum to get that weight up does not impress the judges. Those out-of-control, spastic gyrations only invite injury.***
    Dang…just when I thought I had this lifting thing down…

  • marisela

    i did subs:
    60 ring dips
    60 pull ups w/ light band
    glad to be back after deciding that i was tired of getting fat. Hibernation blues are a bitch!

  • michelle

    marisela-that was fun (?) having u swinging right behind me. at one point keith asked-why are u facing her ?I assure u it is much better to get kicked in the back than in the face.
    for me i like to know when its coming-
    subbed 60 jumping ring dips
    60 kipping pullups
    titus- are u even human?

    120 pullups
    120 ring dips(last 20 negatives)
    31 something

  • Kurt

    Great work, Hari, that is quite an improvement!
    I did the 60 muscle ups with legs on the box. Probably finished around 25 mins, but wasn’t really paying attention. I focused everything on learning the movement and definitely learned a heck of a lot. Also learned that my wrists are not hard enough for that many MU’s, even the sub’d version I was doing.
    Thanks for the advice Greg.
    Lastly, big congrats to Rob, punching out not only his first Muscle up, but then busting out three more just to show that he wasn’t kidding around. Way to go man!

  • Hari, that is so freaking awesome!!!

  • Justin

    Another big Congrats to Rob for the first MU (and 2nd and 3rd, etc)!!! Great work.
    Did the 60 MU on the box in 18:28 I think… Began the C&J ME WOD from yesterday before and worked up to 175 lbs. before doing the MUs. Tried to go back and finish afterwards but had nothing left. Come to find out even when subbing, its pretty tiresome.

  • Robzilla

    First MU! Woot woot
    “How’d I get the beans above the frank?”

  • Joseph_B

    Done at home :
    10 Mini Prison Burpee routine for warm-up (so 55)
    Then 30 MU’s as Rxed on the rings time 18 minutes on the dot. Finished with some L-sit attempts on the rings and Skin the cats to stretch out the shoulders. This is one of the very few WOD’s I can do as Rxed and I’m damn proud of it.

  • Paul S

    Excellent work Hari — great progress!

  • Robzilla – Congratulations!! That is awesome.
    Hari – This means sub ten next time, right??
    Turned my right hand into hamburger helper, but really excited about doing all kipping pull ups.
    60 kipping pull ups
    60 jumping ring dips

  • Erica

    30 one arm band muscle up pulldowns

  • Joseph_B

    Nicely done on getting your first Muscle-UP Robzilla.

  • michelle

    congrats rob!
    awesome time avery!
    Hari-that is really inspiring

  • Rob, Hari, Avery, everyone – good job.
    As for me, I had to scale this workout to my level of skill and focus.
    Fail, for time.
    As Rx’d, 26:00.

  • Brett_nyc

    did 1RM Clean and Jerks
    135,155,175,195,205,215,225lbs. rushed and failed at 235lbs, next time. Did split jerks for the first time ever.
    The 30 MU wod was a disaster after that. 5 mu then 25 jumping in 12 min something.

  • Jack Bauer

    8:40 JMUs. All those pushups paid off.
    Kurt-no problem. I progressed at CF by doing the same thing I did for you. Plenty of PRs to go around.
    Congrats to Robzilla on getting his first of many muscle-ups! And nice work Hari!

  • Hari

    Congratulations, Robzilla!

  • Moon

    26:50, doing the strictest 60 jumping MU’s I think I’ve done so far.
    Hari – fantastic work! You’re going to have to write a book about your techniques for WODs one day.
    Robzilla – Congratz!
