Coach Rut,
Your Dumbbell Bear progression was NASTY! I have Cross-fitted for about 2 and a half years. I am fairly strong. BW 190, with a 415DL, 305, BS, and 160, SP. Not wicked numbers, but probably a little above average. I have decent Metcon, and have done the barbell bear before with good success.

Anyway, I tried to do your progression with the 1 minute intervals at 50lb dumbells. I couldn\'t keep up. I just had to mod the workout and went for 15 progressions for time of the 5, 5, 5.

The reason that I really want to email you is to ask you if you have athletes who can do the progression with 45% BW. I think there is only a select few who could do this. I would have been at around 90lbs, and I hardly believe that you could do very well at that weight. I would love to see someone doing it at this weight.

If this is what you have to offer, I am ordering all of your dumbell moves DVDs ASAP.


Alrod Reynolds

Every minute on the minute for 20 minutes perform the following:

5 Dumbbell Deadlifts
5 Dumbbell Hang Cleans
5 Dumbbell Thrusters

Loading should equal 45% of bodyweight.

Those attending the seven year Anniversary workout received the Anniversary T-shirt.

4 Rounds to determine who can cover the greatest distance rowing.

For this workout you will need:
-1 Concept II rower
-1 400 Meter measured distance (out and back or 400m track)
-1 Pen and paper
-2 participants
-1 coin toss

For starters, there is a coin toss to determine who rows first. Once this has been determined. The athlete on the rower counts down to GO and starts rowing while his opponent starts out running their 400 meters.

As the 400 meter run is completed the Concept II is tagged. The athlete on the rower captures the rower distance and announces the distance to the runner who marks it down on the record sheet prior to starting his rowing leg.

The premise of this workout is cover more distance over the 4 rounds than your opponent.

There is no downtime as you want to cover your running leg as quickly as possible so as to minimize the distance covered by your opponent during his rowing leg.

At the end of 4 rounds the rowing distances are summed to determine the winner of the relay.
