"Cowboy Tucker" - 17:30. Workout wasn't as bad as I thought but it definitely has problems. It seems like it's going to be metcon, but then you have this stop-down right in the middle with 25 HSPUS immediately after you're burned out from presses. They either should have been cut out completely or been first. The deadlifts weren't a bad idea but I think should've either been heavier and fewer or changed to back extensions. Overall, just an odd awkward workout. With all Tucker's contributed to CF, I'd think they could've named a more cohesive workout after him. I guess it didn't come from HQ. If it had, Tucker would be a dead hero, so I guess that's good.

Now Tucker, you threw out that "easy to criticize" label on me like I'm often critical of the workouts. First of all, I think I know as much about CF as anyone else in Ft. Worth, and it's possible I've been doing it longer than EVERYone else in Ft. Worth, so maybe my criticisms should have some weight. Secondly, I'm almost never critical of the CF workouts; I think everyone would agree that's not my way. My way is to be injured or if we're supposed to do Fran, to say something like "I did a bunch of 135 pound thrusters yesterday but I'll give it or shot", or to only do 19 reps instead of 21 when I think no one's watching. I wasn't criticizing you, or a workout you invented, but a workout I think will prove to be unpopular that someone attached your name to.
Didn't you think the same things about it that I did when you did it?

What's the RX'd weight for guys? I'll be suffering through this one with the 6 pm crew.

platt said...

Thanks for the picture reminding me once again how horrible it is to see myself.

CrossFit GSX said...

225lbs, Chuck.

Mo said...

I think Travis did...unless I am mistaken. Dat boy iza machine yo.

Chuck9902 said...

225? I can't think of a better way to work off those lamb burgers! lol

Chris L. said...

Travis did a 6:31(pretty sure that was the time) as Rx'd this morning!

I have a 6:13 in 5th place on the board...about time to get knocked off!! Come on afternooners!

Kristy D., 8:14 DL @ 135lbs

Anonymous said...

Did 6:22 DL at 95 - was nervous to go higher because of the knee.
I havent done DL in at least 3 months. Hopefully next time I will be bandless on the HSPU!

Candice said...

0600 this morning and oh man, 185? I thought it was 155, but I got talked into 185. 9:50 with bands for the HSPU. Gotta get those down!!

Chuck9902 said...

9:22 with some much needed coaching tips on the HSPUs from Buzzard and Castillo.

BTW...Buzzard blew it up! Everyone at 6 pm pushed hard.

Chris L. said...

As Rx'd 4:24

BIG ups to Big Joe for blowing up his Football total... Kid can move some weight, even though he still sucks at volleyball!
Special thanks to Ken "the godfather" for the pointers on technique, and Castillo for the cheering in setting pr's on all four lifts for the crossfit football total
225 power clean
315 back squat
205 bench
405 deadlift

Candice - you're my hero; 185!!? Great pr's set today. 10:08 @ 135# and banded. Did move to blue bands (much harder than green) so working towards the abmats. Kristy, I like the "D." signoff.

Jason Buzzard said...

Two PR's for me yesterday. 99 straight DU's and a 5:38 Diane. Raif did an awesome job on this setting a new PR at almost 4 times faster than last time! Chris, 4 minutes? Always 2 steps ahead arent ya?

Kristy said...

Thanks Ali, I like it too!

raif said...

This one was much more tiring because I've gotten better at handstand pushups and there was less rest between deadlift sets. Chris and Jason I know are really good at hspus but what is really freaky is how strong they are for there sizes to have done so many dl's soo fast. VERY impressive guys! Also great job on the du's Buzzard!

CAttaway said...

7:38 with 145# & an abmat against the wall. The muscle up attempts after class were fun (thanks Ken & Jason B), and I think I'll be able to get them on the bar before the rings - trying again Wed outside so I don't risk the head injury.

Platt - I think you think too much. I did not invent it,I merely copied it and sent it to Josh to post. We could all find things to say about WO's on the blog or CF main site.

I did not label you in any way - i merely said it is easy to critize. I am your friend and glad you are in our box and lives.

I also appreicate your views and insights. I do however doubt you know more than anyone in FT Worth about CF... I mean there is Dutch, Ryan, Ken C, Josh, and Ali Rattan! Come on now you bigg braggert!

Much Much love,

tucker

PS - if they ever really name a workout after me - it will be badass!
