Friday 28, May 2010

Posting early because we have a new Hero WOD - there are some "nuts" rep counts on some movements so I want everyone to know that we will SCALE accordingly. Would like it to be known, that not Mother Nature screwing with my running today, we were going to run no matter what, but Hero WOD's always replace.

Strength:
Bench press
5-5-5
and some other light technique movement I think of. :)


"Nutts"

For time:
10 Handstand push-ups
250 pound Deadlift, 15 reps
25 Box jumps, 30 inch box
50 Pull-ups
100 Wallball shots, 20 pounds, 10'
200 Double-unders
Run 400 meters with a 45lb plate

Lieutenant Andrew Richard Nuttall, 30, from the 1st Battalion Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (1 PPCLI), based in Edmonton, Alberta, serving as a member of the 1 PPCLI Battle Group was killed by an improvised explosive device that detonated during a joint foot patrol near the village of Nakhonay in Panjwaii District, about 25 km southwest of Kandahar City on December 23, 2009. He is survived by his parents, Richard and Ethel Jane Nuttall.

Great WOD Alena.

14 minutes and change.

Travis Coombs said...

Weird... my post from yesterday's WOD got carried over to today's blog post?

Alena said...

I was thinking man we gotta send your time for this Hero WOD in. :-)

Where ya been lately? Miss ya!

Matt said...

Okay, I'm glad your time isn't for this WOD because it destroyed me. Also, doing my workouts alone so not much motivation :-(. I miss ya'll.

29:10 as Rx'd

Had to skip the Warrior WOD to do a Hero WOD! It took me at least 7/8 minutes just for the 100 wall balls. Extremely horrible, but wonderful workout nonetheless.

Alena said...

I will be doing both the Warrior and the new Hero WOD today - Im sure I will die, but after NOT being able to meditate yesterday, why not just pound the crap out of my body!

My recent comments on the main site blog regarding the consecutive and more often Hero WOD postings:

"RIP Arnie.

I am all about paying tribute, HOWEVER...

What is with the recent trend in Hero WOD's? Four years ago when I became obsessed with Crossfit, Hero WOD's were a rarity, and they were well thought out, modal programed workouts. Now, we have a Hero WOD once a month & the programming seems to be more and more ridiculous (reference inverted ring hand stand push ups for instance).

CFHQ - I again question your motivation. Are you programming these WOD's to truly honor these brave souls, or are you doing so for the almighty dollar?

Your thoughts are welcome."


Your thoughts are welcome as well.

And a follow up after my original post was deleted by the CF moderator:

"#17 Deb and #18 joe:

I don't dispute your comments at all. I agree with them for what it's worth.

My main concern is what the motivation of CFHQ is which is now exponentially enforced considering that my original post was deleted by the moderator. It is in its entirety:

"RIP Arnie.

Are we a democratic society with free speech? My comments were very welcome once upon a time."

Stirring the pot...

Brian McClure said...

I thought this was an interesting mix of exercised and repetitions - 30" Box, 100 WB and 200 DU.

Rx'd 23:33

A good tribute to another Hero, RIP Lt Nuttall.

Jason said...

I have never understood doing a workout as a tribute to a fallen hero. Can someone explain the context ? Is this a tradition outside of crossfit ?

There is nothing wrong with starting a new tradition to honor them as long as it does not interfere with the original purpose of crossfit.

Alena said...

DAMN IT! I poted the best comments, and for some crapping reason they did not save... So here I go again, I'm sure they wont be as witty. LOL

Alena said...

Jason - Great point!
My take on it from everyone I know, and what I have been told is that for the most part these men were or had been involved in the CrossFit community.

Alena said...

Travis - I am sorry that CF main thinks so poorly of someone speakng out when as far as I can tell CrossFit has always been about showing and proving nay sayers wrong. So if they were so offended by the comments then please prove you wrong, like they have so many other people with the philosphy behind CrossFit. If they can't then leave the posts alone for others to determine what they think of it.

I did not have the opportunity to become a fnatic until a few years afte you, but when I did even a begineer CF'er like myself could complete the "functional" movements of each Hero Wod - maybe my weight was less than RX'd, but I could do it. Now, even the advanced CF'ers have a hard time completing a Hero Wod as RX'd. Has this become such an elitest attitude that we dont want our future Hero's to be able to honor the fallen?

How many CF boxes out there have 18 year old kids wanting to join the military that see these Wod's and think to themselves that they are not fully honoring the man because they were unable to do an inverted ring push up??? Really at what point did that become a "functional' movement for anyone other than a circus performer? I understand the need for gymnastic movements, and I think it is a huge part of being an athlete, but also I can not recall that movement ever being posted on the site before (I could be mistaken) but shouldn't these movements be something practiced before being placed into a WOD every CF affilaite will program?

I know I speak for myself, my gym, and Travis when I say WE LOVE CROSSFIT - please lets not loose what it started out as such a "short" time ago.
