For tomorrow’s WOD, bring some athletic tape or something that can protect your palms and wrists from muscle ups. I still have scabs on my hand from my last 30 muscle ups for time. This way no one gets too messed up. My wrists were rubbed raw afterwards.

Any confidence I had in my life is now gone.
I saw a lot of good stuff today working on Muscle ups. For those that worked on them good job. Also remember that the alternate 4/4 pull ups and dips will help you muscle ups. So if you have time today go back and do another WOD. Maybe a few of us can get together later on in the day. I did not do the WOD today, my scabs opened up and I started bleeding. But about a week ago I did this WOD for the first time and post 9:38 for 30 muscle ups. Keep up the hard work.
Here's some of Part II of the War College speech, and I think it's right on. Anyone have the full 12 minute Part II?http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/CrossFitJournal_WarCollegePartwoPre.wmv

Muscle ups are hard!!! I got a few but not enough to even sniff as Rx'd. I will be going back later to do the 120/120. Keep up the good efforts. See you in the morning for some CrossFit Friday. Chris V. came up with this one and it looks like we may build on some stuff from last week.
got 22 somewhere b/w 10 and 12 mins, i looked down at the watch a couple of times b/f i gave my last hurrah and i can't remember exactly where it was, when i went for 23 the blisters i had formed during the WOD broke, so i had to call it a day
i still need to learn how to do the muscle ups so i decided to go for the 120/120. i ran out of time in the morning trying to finish the pull ups so i ended up squeezing out a few more sets of dips and finished with 59 pull ups and 160 dips
26:04. What a humbling experience. If MAJ Blackmon hadn't stayed until the end to motivate/yell at me, I'd still be in Hayes trying to knock out the last five right now.Hope to see you all tomorrow AM for the suck fest that Chris has planned. And you thought last week's Tabata was bad...
Going to go to Arvin at 1400 for a little extra suck for those of us that were not able to go Rx'd this morning. We're going to go off the main site. Elizabeth...21, 15, 9 reps of 135lb clean and Ring dips. All for time.
Elizabeth as Rx'd 6:28. Felt good to get a heart busting workout in. I felt a like I cheated myself a little this morning. Thanks to Plum, and Colin for the motivation and joining in on the pain.DB
Worked the MU's this morning, but didn't feel like I got the full experience b/c I did them starting with my feet on the ground. Went back and did Grace: 30 C&J @135# in 6:55.
6:45 Elizabeth - my first experience with a woman in quite some time. Needless to say, it was enjoyable...lets have a great one tomorrow!
10:12 as Rx'd. My wrists are gonna have some bruises tomorrow.
8:45 as RX'd. My wrists are shredded, I guess that's the price you have to pay sometimes.
26:18 for 120 pullups and dips. That was really brutal.
Elizabeth as rx'd10:44The cleans really gave me trouble. I was doing them in sets of 3 and 4 by the end of the 1st 21.
around 30:00 for pullups and dipsKilled the hands. Cant wait for more tomorrow.
took me 15 mins to do:0 muscle ups40 pullups40 dips(those last two were completed in sets of four)I think I need some help on my muscle up form...I couldn't even get my body off my knees into the dip position.
30 MUs - 24:02
