yeah, being in an a war is actually the best way to train for hand stand pushups.

If my math is right, I think that completing all of that in less than 17 minutes would require you to be doing 2 reps per second non-stop.

Nope, your math ain't right. You did the division backwards:
17 min * 60 sec/min = 1020 s

1020 s / 600 reps = 1.7 s / rep

I assume there would HAVE to be a brief rest in there. So realistically it would less time per rep. ****ING INTENSE

Absolute
06-16-2006, 08:15 PM
Basically I rounded up and got the seconds and reps screwed up :P

You'd have to be a ****ing monster to complete that.

#2 would be a breeze for me, why is that one even up there?

edit: holy ****, 7 is ridiculous. I could see just cleaning, but clean and jerk? from the floor every time? murder.

Anthony

#2 isn't overly difficult, but it's not a walk in the park either. For you that's 21 thrusters with 60lbs in each hand!

cant seem to see any strength stuff, seems to all be endurance or strength endurance

for these you need to be short, with a low body fat, so you can have a lot of muscle but little weight to move around

my mate would be good at this stuff, hes 5'7, around 150lbs with 6-8% body fat - can do 100 push ups in 1 minute, an 50 handstand push ups in 1 set

How Vital are these for sports? Would it be great to be able to do this kind of workout if you are a wrestler/football player/rugby/tennis/golf/swimming?? I don't hear of many workouts that are similiar to these, i just don't see whats so great about being able to do hundreds of pushups, pull-ups, etc - Most sports only require quick bursts of speed.

Nonetheless, if you can do some of those, your a freaking animal!!

They're more of a challenge, or goals if you will. Man I would KILL to be able to do #3. That one is insane.

When I see people try these things no one does full reps. Like, kids at my gym are like, "Let's have a push-up race to 50." And then they continue to do like 50 half-ups.

100 Pullups
100 Pushups
100 Flutter Kicks 4 count
100 Situps
100 Squats
100 Handstand Push ups

I can do all of these but the pull-ups. We do more than 100 of the rest everyday.

Most of those are GPP training, perfect for athletes. But a lot of the stuff is all mental, you really need to push through which can help any type of physical activity. Also GPP (ie CF) is great to bring up weaknesses. My pullups were so weak after a month of CF WOD's they're not my weakness anymore!

The challenge is not whether or not you can do these, but: "To be done is less than 17 minutes." That means ALL of that, in under 17 minutes.

Well I do 121 push-ups in 2 minutes, I do 101 sit-ups in 2 minutes, 100 four count flutter kicks is 200 seconds, so 3 minutes and some change. I guess it really comes down the squats, hand-stands, and pull-ups, all of which I'd need to break on.

yer handstands pushups would be killer man. Because remember, your tri's will get burnt from the press ups, and un eed tri strength for the push in handstands. It is all so very damn hard!! Do-able, but jesus would take some damn time.Id love to see a video of anyone completing this in under 17 minutes!

TSQ Challenge 7
BIG 55
55 reps of the Clean and Jerk with 75% of your bodyweight for time.

Time: Under 10 minutes

Mildy possible I could do this, first 2-3 attempts I would be at aroun 15-17 minutes.

you get a shade under 11 seconds per rep, from the floor. I could do like 10-15 at that pace maybe, but 55? not me.

omg impossibe for me...i can barely do 10 pullups at a time...I never targeted it until recently when i couldnt do any. What's the difference between a pull-up and a chin-up? Are they the same thing just different wording? I remember my grandpa telling me when he was in the army they made them do 50 push-ups with each hand. Don't know if he was pulling my leg or not, but he still has an iron grip (also could be from milking cows when he was young).

I tried number 2.

TSQ Challenge 2
Do 21 consecutive "thrusters" (deep front sqauat to push-press) with dumbbells totaling 1/2 your body weight.
This was created by CrossFit.

i got to 13 reps and I cudnt do anymore! lol So i had to have a quick rest then do 6 more, then another quick rest and do 4 more. So i got 23 reps.
This one is damn hard, and looks easy.
I was using 40's dumbells for this exercise and damn did it hurt! lol. when I look at 40's i think, oh man thats only 18kg each hand. Piss easy! hmmmm no it aint!

I bid any of you try it! (with half ur bodyweight)

Chin up is palms away from body.
Pullup is palms facing body.

Once Marunde-Muscle is up, click on "Sarge's insane squatting!" right on the first page. Sarge back squats his bodyweight (218) for 98 reps (maybe 93, can't remember).

is that bodyweight squats with no weight across shoulders or squats using your bodyweight across your shoulder?

Hmmm, I find that highly unlikely... I saw a T-Nation article where a powerlifter guy was trying to squat 200+ (forget exactly how much) and he only got circa 50-60 reps.

What is it called when your palms are facing inward?

MixmasterNash
06-29-2006, 02:38 PM
What is it called when your palms are facing inward?
Palms facing each other is a neutral grip chin or pullups.

The terms are somewhat generic and interchangable, but most commonly understood as:
Chin up is palms body.
Pullup is palms facing away body.

I thought you were being sarcastic when you mentioned palms in for chins and palms out for pullups.
Wow, me along with MANY other people have this mixed up.

Squats using your bodyweight across the shoulder. He was 218, so they made it weigh 218.

You can see the entire video of him doing them, it's about 10 minutes of straight squatting.

I could of sworn it was Pullups hands facing face. I always thought that. o well.
no big deal I spose.

I always thought that chinups (what i thought was hands facing away from body) was harder than pullups.

Progress
06-29-2006, 05:54 PM
I always thought pullups were palms facing away and chinups were anything that get's your chin over the bar (or bar level). So, all pullups are chinups but not all chinups are pullups. Also, I've always felt that this was a worthless argument over semantics.

He didn't give up. He went back to the rack at the end of the vid and tried for the last two... but could barely walk out with the 218 after he'd stopped. Can't blame him for that!
