Bob Harper CF Video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4aIBNqAXhU

WFS.

So, we did this wod yesterday. Bob beat my time by 14 seconds. I have no problem with being beaten, but some observations....

I hit 18, 4, 4, 4 for the HSPU, butterfly 40 pull ups, unbroken. Did 20, 10, 10 on the KB swings (with two breaths rest at the 10's) . Hit the sit ups unbroken (and fast) and held pace with Bob for the burpees (from what I saw in the video) .

The math for his time just does not add up based on what I see in the video.

Also.. the video shows all of them doing burpees at the same time at the end, yet the times are 5min apart.

I call shenangins.

Re: Bob Harper CF Video

good grief - what is the deal with those super wide footed burpees that the guys are doing. Cut work much? At least the lady had her feet closer together while doing them.

edit: correction, it wasn't all the guys. It seems only Perelmutter is the one who consistently did it that way. whatever.

I am a self proclaimed "Burpee Purist". Did the burpee mile two years in a row. Those burpees sucked. The end of a burpee is a jump, clap, feet together!

I guess I will have to be the mature one here: I enjoyed the female coach's handstand pushups

Re: Bob Harper CF Video

How is two abmats as RX'd? Bob clearly had two. Shenanigans indeed.

Even that 1 abmat and two plates stuff is BS to me. Do it on the floor. An abmat sticks up higher than the plates (except for that ladies because she's squishing it down each rep by kipping) and gives you something cushy to hit. Do them on concrete like I have to do at the park!

I'll never be that fast at kipping. It looks like that lady is also dropping at full speed onto her shoulder joints. Mine would explode.

Bob is doing very well though. I'll give him that.
