080712 SATURDAY “GRIP SOME” and Shed Music


Rodil not only did a great job of cheering on ‘Team Firebreathers’ at the CrossFit Games, he also won the drawing for a set Ironmind Vulcan Racks! (and nice work with the DCF shirt and devil horns).

Ironmind is a great company that makes great products. In the past I bought two books by John Brookfield from them, and when they were at the games I went ahead and picked up two of their “Captains of Crush” Grippers (Number 1:140lbs and Number 2:195lbs). Craig liked them so much he picked up another Number 1 for The Shed! Try to close the thing when you get a chance. You’ll earn a new respect for grip strength and the people who can close the Number 3 (at 280lbs), and the four people in the world who can close the Number 4 (with a skull crushing 365lbs)!


Workout: “GRIP SOME!”

As many rounds as possible in 20 minutes

10 snatch grip deadlifts 185 lbs for men, 135 lbs for women

10 knees to elbows

1 rope climb (15 feet)

200m farmer carry 45lb dumbbells for men, 35 for women

Post rounds and fractions of rounds to comments.


Shed Music – This is your chance to listen to what you want.

Please post in comments some songs you wish to hear at The Shed when you are working out. I need artist, and song (and version if there is multiple versions). Just the artist or album won’t work.

If the songs are appropriate, I will purchase them to play at The Shed while everyone is working out.

If you don’t make any requests, you can’t complain about what comes on during your workout.

    Great job, Rodil. And thanks for the fantastic trade! See Rodil’s rack in the Shed!

    Thanks Rodil!

    As for Shed music, anything by Tiffany sounds good to me.

    Jeremy’s ridiculous forearm workout (and I can close the #2 gripper with both hands–tested at Games with Strossen himself). Anyway, this one is a keeper!

    Luca-4.75 rounds
    Dustin-3.5 rounds (scaled because we ran out of 45s)
    Mark-3 rounds
    Ale-5 rounds (scaled for ‘teen’)

    Dustin and Luca stayed for Muay Thai afterwards! It was funny watching Luca try to pull out the mats.

    You don’t realize how much you need you grip’s strength until it’s gone.
    And yeah Rodil nice RACK!!!!

  • J Jones

    A little grip training every day goes a long way. I posted this WOD on a Saturday for those people who have to do some typing for their jobs.

    And as Luca said – NICE RACK Rodil!
