Generally we do named benchmark workouts on Friday.  Tomorrow we’ve got our first Friday Hero Workout, Ryan.  You can read JT’s thoughts on Hero Workouts here.  Hero Workouts are intended to go beyond the test of a benchmark, to be very difficult, posing a true mental and physical challenge.  Tomorrow’s workout will also be the first time muscle-ups are programmed in a metcon.  Don’t worry if you don’t have muscle-ups yet, as there are a lot of ways to adjust for it, all of which will help you work towards developing the skill.  This workout will be challenging, and at times it will probably be frustrating, but give it your all in Ryan’s honor.

The Red Sox are home Friday and the MFYs are coming back to town.  There won’t be parking at CrossFit Fenway, as Josh Beckett takes the mound and attempts to help the Sox even the season series.

  1. RIP Ryan

    First Muscle-up today (dead-hang). Scaled to jumping MU for the workout: 25:38.

    Did anyone do this as Rx?

  2. Yes, so far Mike L and Steve have done the workout RX, 26:08 and 23:07 respectively.

    Nice work had by all the morning Classes!!

  3. 16:38, BUT not even close to RX! I spent 3minutes trying to get into a muscle up, didn’t come close… so I scaled to Jumping Muscle Up.

    Kick ass job to Mike and Steve and Logan on the muscle ups – truly great stuff!
