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)

    Who weighs about 160# that can whoop some butt for today’s WOD at 3pm? I’m game.
    I found out during our drinking metcon that lasted all day that I can drink more than the head trainer. 😉
    Not sure if I shoud be proud of that…

    I like the modified version with pull ups. Not a fan of rope climbs, at least not 12 of them. I will still do the Rx WOD though, just wanted to put that out there. Peace!!!

  • jeremy @ diablo crossfit

    Mark,

    Consuming more liquid doesn’t mean you can “drink more” than me.

    I think Debbie will back me up on that one. . . Champ.

    Hope you are feeling okay today.

    Jeff,
    Great post! Tequila and ginger ale was my choice of drink for years; adding cassis certainly can’t hurt :).

  • Jeremy Jones

    You are right Jorgy. . . it is dumbbells total half bodyweight.

    Great class this morning! We had 7 teams do “Diablo’s Shame”. Jamie and Kate doing it Rx’ed was the best moment of the class (Kate didn’t want to do the rope climbs, but Jamie made her do two, then did the other 10 herself). She is a frigg’n monkey.
