Ice cream makers in WODs?

Just wondering if anyone Has ever programmed a wod with ice cream makers in it? If so, what did it look like?

I think it would be a very physically demanding movememt for a wod, but i cant think of how i would program it into one.

Re: Ice cream makers in WODs?

I'll see if I can get Aush to post his thoughts on here since he does the gymnastics classes at CFSD, but based on my (very limited) gymnastics knowledge I'd advise that you don't do stuff like ice cream makers or other moderately technical gymnastics movements in a "for-time" workout. Focus on quality of movement and body control rather than speed. But from what I remember he programmed them in there with other bar and ring strength/skill work.

I can remember a few gymnastics-related workouts from a year or two back that specifically said "not for time." Probably a good idea.

Re: Ice cream makers in WODs?

If they're easy for you then you can use them in metabolic workouts sure

If you're limited to be able to do less than 8 or so it may not be a good idea

Re: Ice cream makers in WODs?

Nothing to add from me.

I program gymnastics work mainly based on a lighter version of (WFS). Just keep in mind GB assumes you have a solid base of fundamentals before jumping into the workouts. Hollow Rocks, L-sit, Arch Rocks, Ring Support, Handstand, Bridge work, etc...

Re: Ice cream makers in WODs?

We have a freezer at our gym, so I usually just bring my own.

No need to make it yourself.

Re: Ice cream makers in WODs?

It depends on if you do them fast or if you do them slow. I sometimes sub them in for a more difficult version of the pullup and I do them fast. I am unable to do a slow controlled version so far however.
