Re: Self-Named Heavy Metcon: Are You Ready For Some Squats?!

I think I could do 1 round in 5 minutes, but don't see the point in murdering the legs (and in my case, lower back) for 3 full rounds.



But I'd still watch a vid of someone else doing it.

Agreed. Anyone can make up a WOD that is unreal hard. Have some method to it.

At my cert, Andy Stumpf termed this "any a$$hole programming". Still, that looks like an entertaining workout. I think I could do one round in about five minutes, three rounds would take a hell of a long time, especially coming back to the BS after 55 air squats.

That Andy is a pretty smart guy.

It's true. Lots of people are like, oh check out this WO I made up it's so hard:

Deadlift an 18 wheeler x5
900 burpees
500 pull ups
5 rounds for time

Wow. That makes about as much sense as a football bat.

Perfect!! I was trying to think of a name for that!! I hope Andy doesn't mind if I borrow it.

Totally agree. 15x225, 3 times, with what else, more squats in between the sets, WTF?!?? Just being able to do ONE set of 15x225 requires you to have a 1rm in the 300s. Gotta be some sorta superhero just to finish this one!

Usually after a heavy squat workout, I'll do something like 20x225(1 set only). The last few reps are pure torture. I rarely grunt or scream in the gym, but this is the one time I can never control it. Unless you're maxing out well over 500 and have developed some insane metabolic conditioning, I really don't see how it's possible to finish this workout in the times you mentioned. I'm thinking I could do 1 round in 5ish, but then I'd be done. If someone actually can finish, I'd love to see a video!

Each round followed by 55 ATG Air Squats for time. 22:14

I was pretty smoked afterward. Rode 15 easy miles on my bike last night to loosen up from all the squats....legs are retarded sore today.
AWESOME!!!!!

Great modification on the workout. Will you try it in full now that you've had a feel for it? My legs were STUPID sore for a good 4 days after, but it was totally worth it!!

No offense taken!

I don't think that anyone who is new to CrossFit would attempt to do something like this unless they were somewhat of a decent squatter to begin with. I posted this more or less for people who do squat a lot and for people who incorporate squatting into their programming more frequently; and of course, like everything in CrossFit, it's totally scalable. That's the beauty of it! I've had quite a few people from all over try this workout rx'd and nobody has had any severe side effects so far.

I believe it can be done in 15-20 min w/o the air-squats...imo.
I've had one guy so far finish the workout in just under 15 minutes, rx'd. The guy likes to squat, no doubt, so that probably helped a lot. Maybe I jumped the gun a little when I gave that time range. 15-25 may be a more suitable goal?
