090823 Sunday “Diablo’s Shame”
Nancy makes sure to show Lauren S (one of our latest Newbies) how the 6am class operates (by sneaking up behind, and passing her during lunges).
Workout: “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 losers).
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 dumbbells totaling 1/2 body weight
100 deadlifts with body weight
Pick a partner who has similar body weight, or pick who’s weight will be used for thrusters, and who’s weight will be used for deadlifts.
Post total time. Compare to your “Diablo’s Shame” singles time if you have one.
(I heard there was a video of the original competition on the internet somewhere. . . but I can’t seem to find it. . . of course I didn’t look too hard.
The moral to the story is that our affiliate team stomped them at the Games this year. All is now right in the universe. -jj)
