Re: Valhalla 2009

Depends. As you can see above, I didn't even try to do them in order. I picked the ones I thought of as most technically demanding/difficult to accomplish first. Set your own criteria, according to what you can do.

Re: Valhalla 2009

Two of my friends are agreeing to do this the weekend of June 26th. Neither of them are on Crossfit, though. Anyone else wanna do it?

Re: Valhalla 2009

Colin - FWIW, unless they are elite/professional athletes already, I wouldn't let them do it. See the below from 'Start Here' and the many threads on Rhabdo... Your friends are courting disaster.

"In any case it must be understood that the CrossFit workouts are extremely demanding and will tax the capacities of even the world's best athletes. You would be well advised to take on the WOD carefully, cautiously, and work first towards completing the workouts comfortably and consistently before "throwing" yourself at them 100%. The best results have come for those who've "gone through the motions" of the WOD by reducing recommended loads, reps, and sets while not endeavoring towards impressive times for a month before turning up the heat. We counsel you to establish consistency with the WOD before maximizing intensity."

Re: Valhalla 2009

Scott,

I appreciate your concern for my friends. I agree- it's easy to discover Crossfit and dive straight in only to find yourself injured a few days later. If these guys were not athletic (Marine and BUD/S trainee) I wouldn't have recommended it to them. 48 hours is the goal we're shooting for, but certainly not the limit. The point is completing the WODs with a proper amount of intensity in order to honor those who have died fighting for us.
