Da Bear

We’re not going for time or reps this Friday.  No, this week, it’s all about going heavy.  The goal of The Bear is to move a maximum weight.  Like our regular strength training you can rest between rounds and attempt to increase the load each time.  Those of you that have tried bear complexes before know that stringing them together can be exhausting.  Check out this WOD demo (WMV/MOV), and let’s see how much mass you can move.

May 27, 2011
The Bear

5 rounds for load.  No resting the bar on the ground.  Break up or combine movements any way, as long as all movements are complete range of motion.

7 Sets of the Sequence:
Power Clean
Front Squat
Push Press
Back Squat
Push Press

  1. Greetings from Performance in Fairfield CT.
    6 Front squats (Down 4 counts and up 1 count) / 5 dead hangs – 5 rounds
    5 Burpees and 100m row / 5 rounds

  2. The Bear won this fight…31.6kg (the result of combining kilos and pounds)

    Sad that this was Tiff and Shruj’s last day at CFF (for now), but glad to see them both crush it 🙂 Safe travels, guys!

  3. Maximum Bear: 35 kgs.

    So long to Tiff and Shruj! From your first day of double-puke to your current all-around CrossFit domination, you guys have been such an inspiration and will be sorely missed. Windy City (or whichever gym you land in) has no idea how lucky they are to have two new amazing additions! Miss you guys already xx

  4. Bear: 36.5kg (38.5 for 6 and 1/2 sets, and I cried when I lost the bar shy of 7 after all that work!)

    I just want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the most amazing 18 months of my life. I have made such beautiful friendships from Crossfit Fenway, and I am grateful to have met each and every one of you. Leaving Boston is so difficult having to say goodbye to you all, so I’ll just “see you later.” You are all welcome in Chicago anytime, we would love the familiar faces and visits. CFF holds a deeply special place in my heart, and I will always represent you as my home team no matter which box I end up at. Best of luck to all in the games. Shruj and I will proudly cheer you on through the competition. And to all the fierce athletes at CFF, keep on killin’ it! You have inspired me beyond what I thought I was capable of. Much love.

    1. Shrujal Patel

      I’m not one for long goodbyes so I’m just going to say “ditto” to everything my wife so eloquently stated. You guys are the best; don’t ever forget what a special group we have here! See you in LA 🙂

  5. Bear: 40 kg

    It’s heartbreaking to say adios to the Patels, but I know that I will see you both soon. And so happy that Tiff and I got one last workout together! Much love!

  6. Bear: 45 kg – kindof fun, in a painful way…

    It was great being able to see Tiff & Shruj one last time this morning at the box. They were the first folks who really reached out and welcomed me at the box, and I enjoyed working out with them on occasion since then. I hope the folks at your new box welcome you as warmly as the two of you welcomed me.

  7. Bear: 55 kg

    Tiff & Shruj, I don’t want to think about CFF without you. Everything about you is amazing. Chicago is SO lucky. I can’t dwell on the goodbye, so I’ll just keep reminding myself that I’ll see you out there very soon! xo
