“Clock Whores”

“We first started doing CrossFit back in late 2004 and affiliated in early 2005. The single greatest innovation the program advocated was the time clock. The clock measures what each specific workout is and creates a unique performance data point. I introduced the concept to my clients to help them shift perspective on training. The paradigm shift was profound, and resulted in shifting the training from not just working hard; we were working very hard, and being able to measure their specific performance in every workout. . .

. . .Definition of a Clock Whore: Person who is so obsessed with beating the clock/others that they will prostitute themselves and sacrifice important and vital components of training such as range of motion, repetitions or other performance metrics for a “better” time. . . “

    Nice work Jimmy!

  • Herm @ CF Los Altos, CA

    “I think there was confusion on the dates…Herm (aka Quads) and Will B. are coming to the Shed on Tuesday 12/23, I think they’re headed to another local CF gym on Saturday. So, Tuesday, 1030am, be there or be square!”

    Thanks, Stavros! Unlike the rest periods between bench press and pull-ups on “Lynne”, the confusion is cleared.


    BTW, check out One World’s posted vid today. Will and Freddy crushed that DL/burpee WOD. I’m getting nervous about seeing him zip by me on Tuesday!

    Badger this morning.

    33:27 (1 min PR).

    The cold melted my lungs (and No, I am not going to do burpees for saying that, if you haven’t been to the 6am class lately, you don’t know what “cold” is).


  • Miles

    Interesting article on personal integrity and no I am not a clock whore, slut maybe.

  • Mark L.

    Jimmy… less gut, same hairline. Let’s hope that trend continues through your 30s!

  • Craig

    I on the other hand, am a clock hog – taking as much time as possible pre-wod and during wods.

    Badger this afternoon, anyone? (although the thought of 90 fsc’s does not excite me)

  • Andrew

    New guy here, I’ll be there for the 10:30 class for my first official WOD!

  • Jared

    This workout looks like it has some pukie potential.

  • Stavros@DiabloCrossfit

    Andrew will be a great addition to the DCF family, he tore it up in his PT’s.

    I did Badger (can’t resist hero WOD’s) this AM at SRFD st.5, had to do runs on treadmill (ugh).

    26:35 as RX’d

    PR by 2 mins, running on a stupid machine really slowed me down. Oh, and 90 squat cleans hurt.

  • Mountain

    Awesome workout! 30:13 as RX’d.

    Nice PR, Stav. Jaz rocked a 37:13 with 55lb squat cleans. Jaz, if you continue like this, we’ll have to start calling you Super Jaz.

    New Guy Andrew, you’ve got the deepest squats I’ve ever seen. You should try to show up for the Olympic lifting classes with Craig– you’ll make really fast progress.

    Finally, today is Day 72 of the 100 Day Pullup Challenge. With the 90 pullups from today’s workout, I’ve done exactly 4,000 pullups during the Challenge (only 2,628 were actually required). Now the hard part begins…

  • Andrew

    Thanks Stav and thanks for the help today Mountain and Mike. I ended up doing it is 45:44 with the 55lb squat clean.

  • Herm @ CF Los Altos, CA

    Killer times being posted by Diablo since the last time I was up there…sheesh!

    If some of you guys are up for it, There are a few CF’ers from around the area getting together on Saturday @ 10 AM at CF Unlimited, Austin’s box.

    Open invite. So far, it’ll be Will B from CFOW and myself. I’m trying to get Jason Khalipa to show up. It’s gonna be an epic WOD!

    Then Tuesday i’ll be back up in Walnut Creek. This is gonna be one of the best CF weeks EVER!

  • Dan G.

    Badger @ 0600 kicked my ass! I finished as Rx’d but it took me 46 minutes. Never in my life did I think I could do 90 pull ups in a WOD. What do ya know, this sh*t works!

    I think you are thinking like sukrat, but I think you should cover the other side of the topic in the post too…
