Any recommendations on subbing the wheelbarrow and buddy carry for an Army of One workout? I am trying to convince a co-worker to join me but when she saw the workout she got a little nervous :)

Mike said...

James - I'm in for 0515, but you Julie and Tiffany may have to team up to carry me. Or perhaps we could get a real wheelbarrow. Could a "Big Helper" lend a hand?

james said...

Well a real wheelbarrow would be cool but failing that ....maybe 25 pushups ...what about carrying something heavy for the buddy carry like a bag with medballs or weights in it?

james said...

I was thinking about this today mike - I suspect that you may have to do the lions share of the work in the buddy carry and I can make up for it in the other endeavors - I am sure I can carry you some of the way - ants carry big heavy stuff

Tiffany said...

Julie- are you going at 5 tomorrow?

Adam "Big Helper" Latham said...

Heather has to work early in the am, (apparently more people are having heart attacks these days...thank you holidays...) so I have to miss the morning. Anyone going in the afternoon, around 1500ish, and need a buddy?

james said...

Mike - looks like its you and me - I'm game.

Tiffany said...

James, I can bring our deer hauler.

james said...

Tiffany - I like it !!! do they make them for bucks Mike's size? Does that mean we have to shoot him first though?

james said...

Tiffany said...

James, it is customary to shoot the animal first before hauling it, however in this case dead weight would not be to your advantage. So, I think he should live...at least for your backs sake.

Mike said...

James, I'm up for anything. We'll figure something out.

Mike said...

Thanks Tiffany - I'm glad you're looking out for me.

james said...

okay we keep him alive ...for now ..given that today is actually Australia day I should probably talking about bare knuckle fighting kangaroos rather than shooting deer but anyway we will make do with the deer-man

Kay said...

Ah, I miss team WODs at IMCF; love the friendly banter, too! James, you need to practice protecting your PM, so carrying Mike will help.

Julie said...

I am game for 515 if you guys are Tiffany, James and Mike. Are we all in? I will be there at 5am!

james said...

Kayster - on the contrary ...our PM needs to show some ticker and stand her ground... I thought the state was the state because it held the monopoly on the use of force!! who gives in to some unruly mob?

Erin Anderson said...

Anyone want to partner up at 8 with an 8:15 start? And iI weigh less than mike but more than tiffany!

Tiffany said...

Julie, I'll be there at 5.

4x bear crawl gym lengths (~same)

Jess said...

Scott,

Thanks I am on night shift so Im not up till about noonish and then at the gym between 1330-1430. I will do the revised workout you suggested!

Mike said...

James, Julie, and Tiffany (aka Bear Sawyer) - thanks for keeping me accountable to be there at 0515 and for pushing the intensity. I'm a lot better for it and that is what the CrossFit community is all about.

Great week of WODs

Ed said...

Team John and Ed -
17:59

That last uphill part of the 400 is a bit more daunting when carrying a fellow CrossFitter on one's back.

John T. said...

Team John and Rob 14:53.
Fun WOD and nice way to end the week.

Julie said...

I agree Mike! Great week and great push at the end. Loving the team workouts again! :) Thanks James, Mike and Tiffany!

Doug said...

Doug and Bo @ 16:02. Fun times!

james said...

Me three - it has been an awesome week. I am sure Tiffany will comment ...but when she did the WOD again (don't ask me why) with Rich M her bear had a sad face.

Looking forward to next week.

Greg M said...

Team Meg and Greg: 17:20. Meg was the lucky person having to lug me around the parking lot this morning. Nice Job Meg!!!

Great month of Programming by Mac, looking forward to Feb programming by April starting next week.

On another subject:

I am on day 27 of the Whole 30 Challenge. Drastic changes for me in a month. I have increased my work capacity, lost over 4 inches in my waist, I recover faster, and feel 100 times better. I have found out that I cannot out PT my crappy diet(as James would say) and have made a significant lifestyle change with nutrition. Jacque and I are going to do another 30 days of Whole 30 before we switch to the zone. Thank you Meg for getting me into the challenge and thank you to James for the mentorship you have provided during the past year, sorry it took me so long to comprehend. My frontal armor is hard to pierce. I would encourage anyone else to give it a try and see for yourself. We have a Facebook page for the whole 30 group which has been great to help with recipes and other issues. Let me know if you are interested.

Brian S said...

Brian and Cedric, 17:13! We didn't need a second try to get it right....just sayin.

Meghan Smith said...

Team Meg/Greg--great working with you, Greg! Glad I could do some of the carry load...those minor inclines sure do make themselves known on the tail end of the 400. I think the wheel barrow was the hardest part!

Concur on the Whole 30...definitely a great lesson. We'll be incorporating a lot of it into our regular routine. I'm sure another 30 is in our future, too.

On a separate note, I encourage everyone to be cognizant of individuals/teams that have gotten out gear for a WOD. Oftentimes we see athletes running around trying to find the bar/ball/box/band they were using in the middle of a WOD because someone else has moved it to warm up, work out, etc. Clearly we are a team in IMCF, but equipment courtesy is important, too.

Great WOD, looking forward to Feb!!

troth: fact. "Carrying Greg was, er, fun. Yeah. That's the troth."

Scott said...

22:55 One Man Wolf Pack
Subbed
bench for 24" box
#25 plate for Med Ball SU
carried 2 x 45# plates for wheelbarrow
45# plate run for 300M instead of Buddy Carry.

All reps stayed at 50. Man do burpees suck after #15.

Mac said...

Team Soraya/Mac, 17 minutes-something. Doesn't really matter, great times regardless! And Soraya put to rest the "can a smallish woman carry a largish guy" question...threw me on her back and took off like a leopard...awesome!

Hope everyone enjoyed the WOD. As I mentioned in the morning, this was a scaled down version of a "full mission profile", as seen on brassringfitness.com. That's a great resource website as you're looking for fun and innovative ways to spice up pt and keep it relevant. Check it out.

Ross said...

Team Noah and Ross:
18:24, Noah gets extra points for carrying my fat a__ on the buddy run....

Tiffany said...

Julie - I think our time was 17:16? Groups are definitly more fun and encouraging!

I didn't want anyone to be left out of this great team wod so since I had the time why not! I will say this, I like carrying Julie more than Rich. My bear crawls went into hybernation second time around along with my burpees. Regardless, Rich and I finished in 15 something. Great wod's Mac, thank you!

"moper" I couldn't figure out why my cubs (mike and james)were moping around during bear crawls :) Just kidding guys.

Jess said...

IMCF Vilsek Buddy team of One

Noah said...

Has anyone else noticed that the best way to get water out of the new water cooler is to do an air squat? I have a feeling James was behind the setup, I just can't prove it.

Julie said...

17:16 is right Tiffany. Glad I was easier on you than Rich too! :)

Jess said...

Does anyone have the number/contact info for the cake decorator that made that awesome looking cake at our last mini challenge? I and a couple of coworkers are doing a joint promotion party and I need a price comparison. My email is jrpadme@gmail.com or jessica.c.wayment.mil@mail.mil

Scott said...

Hmmm.... Maybe I should have only dont 25 reps. Oh well, now I don't feel as guilty about that office B-day cake.

Erin Anderson said...

Jess, Just sent you an email about Major Cakes.

www.majorcakes.shutterfly.com is Jacquie's website. She is really good!

Jess said...

Thanks Erin!

Team John and Rob 14:53 as previously reported.

Programming
Meg and I are going to be working on an IMCF programming project in an effort to help us 1) continue to have challenging IMCF programming and 2)improve programming skills. (Meg - If I'm speaking prematurely for you pleave advise.) What the final version looks like is TBD, but if you are interested in learning about programming and want to get involved, come up on the net and we'll include you.

Unfortunately there isn't enough time for everyone to do a month worth of IMCF programming. However, that doesn't preclude you from being involved in how the month's program is developed. It would be value-added to you to leave Ft. Leavenworth with some programming experience/exposure so that when your BCT commander notices that you are kicking everyone's tail in the fitness arena and tasks you to come up with a program, you will have some tools to use draw from. MTF

Jess said...

Rob,


I am interested in learning how to program the workouts. I plan on applying for the scholarship for the next level 1 class also (I just have to check our training schedule to make sure I am not TDY when the class is held!)

Meghan Smith said...

Rob, not speaking prematurely at all. Sounds great! ~Meg

Rob,

I'm in for the programming work as well. I'll gladly pick up one of the months later in the summer when the summer folks leave and the new crew isn't in the swing yet - maybe July.

Tiffany said...

Rob, I am interested in learning about programming. I also want to do the level 1 cert coming up. Thanks!
