What is a good sub for Knees to Elbows. We don't have a bar up, but will soon. Tried to look for another place to do them, but not really found one. So any suggestions?
Do them on the floor. YouTube has demo of this.
You can either do them on the floor like Denise said or you can do standing knee to elbows. L-R=1
Subbed thrusters for wall ball shots 12 lbs
Push press 24 lbs
Swings 35 lbs
thrusters for wall ball shots – gallon of water for weight
knees to elbows – on the ground
swings – gallon of water for weight
19:08. 50 is now my least favorite number 😉 great sweaty workout! Thanks for the Filthy Fifty suggestion yesterday, girls. Have a great day!
Great workout! Best so far!
23:56! Thrusters for wall shots at 10lbs. Knees to elbows on the ground. Speed stair step ups for box jumps. And a wild sprint back to my timer to get y time! Thanks!
May 2/13, I did a whopping 6 minutes faster!!!
Huff, puff, 26:02- thrusters instead of wall shots, knees to elbow on the ground. Thank you for the workout!
That was a doozy! 27:09 Trampoline instead of jump rope (it's around here somewhere). Knees to elbows on ground, I think. Can someone send me a link to a video for that? I'm not sure I'm doing it corrrectly.
26:33 awesome workout!
16 lb push press 40
30 lb push press 10
21:36. Thruster with #16 pounds and step ups..split up burpees
Step ups for box jumps on 2 stairs in my house. The rest as rxd
25:07 that was tough!
Tragic this morning. Not feeling it. Ugh
Jenni you are kind by reversing the order. Since this is one of my favorites I am going to challenge myself and do it without any modifications. We shall see…
24:06. Ughhhh. that was a good one.
To deck on 30
Jen Roe, just curious, are you doing the one posted here as rx'd or the original?
Not looking forward to this one as my Day 2, I'm still feeling yesterday. Any suggestions? Thanks!
knees to elbows on the floor
modfied all to 20 reps since I am a newbie and I still have to function today and tomorrow and I was feeling yesterday before I even started. Praying to stick to it! Thanks again!
thrusters for wall ball 10lbs
no knees to elbows
Had to modify a lot since I'm away from home, but this still kicked my booty and worked up a serious sweat!!
17:38 Left out the back extensions completely and did crunches and floor K2E since my belly is starting to get in the way. Feels good to be back after we all got sick (again!). Great workout!
missm23: that was me just a few months ago! (I just started at the end of Sept) Do what you can and don't worry about it because you'll keep getting stronger and stronger. The times are just for your own reference so you can see how you've improved. Everyone here is so supportive and that's what's kept me coming back just as much as the awesome workouts. Just try today's you'll do great!
22:41 Original filthy fifty which is reverse order as listed above
jumping pull ups instead of CFSU
double unders instead of jump rope
Love this one. I was a little slow on the double unders this morning.
21:45 subbed tuck jumps for box jumps
OH MY WORD!
stuck in the house, so mods needed.
JJ for rope
Thruster for WBS, used 35#(I didn't think I could…but I DID!)

Step up for BJ because…well,I was worried I would fall(again)
I'm sweaty, I'm filthy, I'm shaking. I wanted to quite but I didn't.
I feel awesome!
Kristen-Thank you so much for the support!! When I read rujoco03's comment, I thought, duh, makes perfect sense. I'll just log my mod's and time and pray for the best! 🙂

Did this yesterday and reversed it today, with some mod's: here goes
50 reg jump rope
jumping pull ups (instead of cfsu)
started with box jumps
jumping pulls ups
only jumped out and in on the burpees, this is the reason for the much faster time, its crazy how much longer it takes when you actually hit the floor. Just did this as an experiment to see how much faster it would be 🙂
and 100 jump rope, since the original says double unders and I suck at them, need a heavier rope I think.
Fun stuff this is 🙂

18 min – really modified knees-to-elbows and crunches instead of CFSUs.. still hating the burpees 🙂

29:00 flat! Oh my.
Beth Clack, just go to youtube, type in whatever the exercise is, preceded by crossfit, so for example, crossfit knees to elbows, and you will get all kinds of demos 🙂
Subbed plank knees to elbows.
25 even. Holy mother lovin' burpees. Ouch!!
My shoulders are feeling it today, and I'm 100% positive that my love handles are pissed off at me. 🙂
Good workout. I loved it.
31:35 – not my goal of 30 minutes, but I didn't miss it by much!
24# push press

Knees to Elbows on the floor and they killed my abs! Not a good idea to have box jumps last – at least not for me! 🙂

GREAT workout. 21:54.
Day #2! 15 minutes Feeling the legs from yesterday. Did reps of 20, hindsight I probably should have shot for 25, maybe 30? But as I said yesterday, I'm out of breath and sweating so it's better than the couch. Subbed jacks for rope, 6# thrushers for wall balls (arms need more, legs can't hang), 20# push press (woot), K2E on floor with arms anchored for 1/2 (def better than w/o), 10# db swings, and box jump on first step.

I subbed thrusters for wall ball, 12lbs.

All I can say is wow.
Wow 28:28 thanks great workout!!!!!
Phew! Hard hard hard and loved it! 35:27. Did K2E on the floor but otherwise as Rx'd. My burpees are feeling stronger! Yay! 🙂
About 30 minutes. Forgot to check the timer. Seems I had to run off to the kitchen and cook dinner!
On the other challenges: I still drink coffee everyday. I don't drink soda other than the occasional Diet Dr Pepper for a treat. I eat lots of veggies and fruits. I don't eat after 8 pm at least 5 days a week.

23:04 Rats! Goal was 23 or less!

So, I joined you guys yesterday and I use to do CressFit a couple of years ago. I have stayed active but could not afford them anymore. I was so excited when I stumbled across this and todays WOD was awesome. Did it in 31.24…LOVE IT!!!
28:45. I had no energy and had to take many breaks. I had did 1/2 the burpees then 1/2 the wall balls & repeated that in order to get through the burpees. I did Knees to Elbows with my pull up bar and could only do 2-3 at a time, they were so tough! I made it through the workout and feel great!
15# thrusters for wall balls
32:00 didn't want to do it but pushed through. got it done. whew.
Sub thrusters for wall ball shots.
Sub plank K2Es for hanging K2Es.
Sub crunches for CFSUs.
Felt strong today even though I'm one of the pokey mamas. CFSUs still don't feel like anything productive so I subbed crunches. K2Es were tough!
18:00 min with a hair malfunction in there lol. Great workout!
18:00 min with a hair malfunction in there lol. Great workout!

Awesome workout, but I was close to being dead after it was over.
Saved this one to do with my husband on his day off – it whipped both of us! 19:23 for me, with thrusters for wall ball shots, 10 lbs for all weights, and K2E on the floor. My legs are dead…
Did it a day late 17:27,
Dived 20# DB for kb swings an K2E were more like knee to waist.
Can't figure out why I am 5 minutes slower than last time!?! Going to blame it on a bad time of the month. Scapegoat for everything! 😉
Did everything as RXed but KTE were more like KTB (knees to boobs).
31.23 slow slow
HAd to jump rope one leg at a time
Subbed second set of thrusters for wall ball
Had to sub 'step ups' instead of box jumps
I am sorry – but after three
I am sorry to state the obvious, but after 2 kids I am not sure how you guys do box jumps and jump rope without Depends in tow…..good grief..I hate subbing!
25:19… had a cold for days so I finally got to this today. Great workout!
23:42 7 risers each side on step, 15# kbs at end -skipped them accidentally
29:36 this was such a good one!
32:37, while prepping dinner to put in the crock pot before work!
I cheated a little and did 25 burpees and 25 push-ups. 50 burpees would have taken me a million years, and I didn't have time this morning.
Subbed thrusters w/5 lb. dumbells for wall balls.
K2E on floor.
Box jumps on my 8" step.
Had to keep taking breaks to work on dinner, but I needed the breaks anyway!
Little late posting my workouts this week! This was a killer!
19:34 compared to
14:32 on 8.16.12 and compared to 17:19 back on 1.17.12.
I think I am slower because of the 'proper' burpees and CFSU's … at least I hope that's what it is!
17:33 – sub thrusters for wall ball 10#
lying knee to elbows
standing jumps – don't have a box or stair 🙁
22:05 Better late than never. This was a tough physical and mental workout. Wanted to quit but powered through!
