I don't believe it, my 18 yr old son, who's never done crossfit just did a muscle up on my new rings. No kip, just from a deadhang with his knees bent.:ranting2: I took him out to the garage to try to impress him and show him that I could do a few ring dips. Then I explained to him what a muscle up was and kind of demo'd it while standing up and showed him the false grip. Then I told him that you're considered a crossfit stud when you can do one hanging. So he gets on the rings and does one on his first try without a whole lot of effort. Then he says,"wow let me see if I can do it again." So he does another!!! I should have known better then to try to impress my boys. The last time I took my 16 yr old with me on a metcon, he smoked me. And now this:confused: Guess there's something to be said for youth.

Brad, you have one choice, next time he does a muscle up, punch him in the stomach and nock him off the ring, tell him he is doing it wrong!! No it is great your boys are that fit, if challenging you keeps them going you will have done your job. You have to keep pushing yourself to push them. Look up front and back lever and get them to try that.

Thanks, it was tough but good. I may have a suprise for you if Brady can get it sorted out.

3:00 break

5 MU's
clean and jerk practice to 135lbs
hand stand practice, kick up and hold. I got a good few seconds, it felt good. I haven't yet timed them, no real use to time yet. But I feel more solid now.

You got the 35???? :D:highfive: Dude, get it up ASAP!! Honestly, I don't think i'll get the 35 out now but you've motivated me to go and try to get it. Then you go and get 15 rounds C2B Cindy. Do you think 17 was in the tank without the max pre wod?

I'm waiting on brady to post it, he got it on his phone, and is trying to get it on you tube.

I don't know, maybe a couple of more rounds. I had to rounds where I ended up with singles, but picked myself up and got the 5 reps done after. But it would have been 1, MAYBE 2 rounds.

I'll go see if Brady has the video workedout.

Hey Nik, where's the link?;) I had a dream that you did 45 C2B pull-ups lastnight ! Don't know how the heck that came about, probably because I was waiting for the video be posted right before bed haha.

Scott Jenkins 08-25-2009 02:52 AM

Re: Nik
 
Yeah, we both beat Australia's best :highfive: Seriously that 35 C2B's is impressive Nik, you know that if you get to 50 thats Elite standard for normal kipping head over pull ups.

8 rounds at 19:50, couldn't get the bar up off the ground for a thruster.

That is the goal. When I first started I go 50 head over, I want 50 C2B. In time I will get it. My hands ate SORE today after the 31reps at 10 then the 35, then weighted Cindy. But no tares, just the weird whie you get under the callus.

Today looks murderous. I did some run/ shoulder press WOD back then for some reason. So this will be a first for me.

Sorry, bad quality video. Instinct isn't the best, should have borrowed my brother's Flip.

I've seen Nik do more unbroken, he's being modest.

Fantastic work Nik, your kip looked like it has evolved , Im going to call it the 'Froggerfly Kip', mixture of a frog kip and a butterfly, I use a frog mixture also, not to quite as good affect though.

Mna that is just my pullup, I don't know where it came from, I didn't train for it, that is just how I figured out how to kip. So froggy kip sounds good to me, just as long as it gets me to the qualifier!!


10:00
clean progression, with 95lbs, handstand practice, MU's. I was going to go fo SP max but I realized we are doing thrusters today so I didn't.

Yeah that's fine, I think that if I box when i'm tired and do well then when competition day comes round it should be easy. Train hard fight easy as they say, so i'll mess myself up and see how I cope :D

Nice, I like the way you think. I'm the same. If I can do somthing good aftert I have done a killer workout, then when it comes time for like the qualifier, I will be on my game fresh. I cant wait for the 35. My hands can, but I can't.

haha, i'll go for it tonight. Not sure I can get it taped because my cam's at home and kempie is away. Whatever i do though it'll be witness by someone who frequents these boards. And, next time it will be a vid. Trust me i'm good for it!;)

last time I got 8 rounds solid.

I trust you, if you say you got 35, you got 35, I have no reason to doubt you. You don't have to video it either, I did just to post my kip and because you did, no other reason.
