The Lost Exercises

There's a collection of movements floating around the CF website that, though they may be described or videoed, have never actually shown up in front-page WoDs as long as I've been around.

Some examples are...

- Turkish get-ups (preferably with a bar)
- Hollow rocks
- Virtual shoveling
- Windshield wipers

Maybe more...

So... who wants to come up with a workout... including all of these?

Re: The Lost Exercises

We have incorporated hollow rocks into our warmup, so they are done before most class sessions actual "WOD".

In a group setting we do TGUs fairly regularly, but with DB or kettlebell for space and safety concerns.

I grew up in NE Ohio, so I have no interest in virtual shoveling. Novelty for Santa Cruz?

Like windsheild wipers, prefer as a after WOD extra.

Re: The Lost Exercises

I've been around for a few years and have seen all of these exercises within WODs. Virtual shoveling one time. The rest showed up in a few WODS. Some didn't work within the context of the WOD, others may not be challenging enough. Sometimes exercises show up after being mentioned within the message boards....

Re: The Lost Exercises

TGUs are a staple of the Catalyst Athletics WOD sections. Greg put Eva T through one a couple weeks ago, and it was posted on the main page.

I don't know if it has a name, I tried tried the exercise on the Gym Jones logo, a TGU with a barbell and a KB. I just started doing TGUs, and I used 20kg for the bar and 20 kg for the KB. It's harder than it looks.

Re: The Lost Exercises

I don't think the gym jones logo is a TGU.

Here is Arthur Saxon doing a "two hands anyhow", usually like a windmill, picking up the weight with the lower hand.

Re: The Lost Exercises

Don't forget the WOD that Rx'ed like 30 kip-ups...
Or the 30 odd 95# SLDLs, that one was brutal!

Good times.

Re: The Lost Exercises

Tom, that's the one. Looking at it, TGU might be the worst way to get both weights up "anyhow."

Unfortunately I'm hooked.

Re: The Lost Exercises

Nice, Ben...

How about somersaults/shoulder rolls for distance?

You're right Tom! It's a Two-hands Anyhow... a real cool skill and strength exercise. Can be done from a windmill or from a bent/screw press... either way it's challenging!

It can be done from the TGU but it's near impossible for the "normal" athlete to get any significant poundage up that way. Stick with the windmill or bent/screw press and you'll do just fine! :P
