080110 THURSDAY “Diablo’s Shame”
Back in November of 07 CrossFit One World and Diablo CrossFit went head to head in an impromptu lunch workout. Freddie and Jolie beat Craig and I handily (although there is some debate on the number of additional reps completed by the DCF crew. . . and yes we are sore loosers).
The original workout was completed as a team workout where only one person at a time is allowed to do that particular exercise, but the exercises can be completed in any order the team wants.
Original – 2 person team, completed for time:
12 rope climbs
50 thrusters with dumbells totaling bodyweight
100 deadlifts with bodyweight
Here is the epic video:
To make this workout for one person we cut the reps in half and call it
“Diablo’s Shame” – For time:
6 rope climbs
25 thrusters with dumbells totaling half bodyweight
50 deadlifts with bodyweight
If your rope breaks like ours did (see below), then sub 60 pull ups for the rope climbs.
Post time to comments.
Our rope was attached to a sheet metal beam using multiple loops of nylon tubing (2100lbs test strength). The nylon was abraded by the beam and it snapped when I was about half way up. Other than some bumps and bruises from the fall, the metal ‘eye’ at the top shredded my thumb (as well as spraining it pretty good). I guess I am just lucky the thing didn’t hit me in the face.

It is interesting how a little bit of competition can get people moving, and coming from a CrossFit background, I totally understand where this guy is coming from (as should the rest of you CFers). “Men will die for points.”
I applaud Nike not for the device (not very revolutionary), but for adding the competition aspect. Great idea, and something that the Concept 2 rowing people have been doing for years. Check out the Concept 2 website for details. -jj
