120629

Not gonna lie—I’ve been waiting to do this for a while. First time I’ve actually programmed this for a large group of people, and I’m excited to see exactly what happens.

The workout for Friday the 29th… King-Kong.

You can read the story of how/why I originally came up with King-Kong here: King-Kong Is My Beautiful Baby. Obviously, when I wrote this, I thought it would be for a fairly small portion of the population. Now it’s not even that big of a deal to be able to complete it. I actually finally decided to write it in after watching video of Graham Holmberg and Marcus Hendren the other day. I haven’t seen a legit sub-2, but if anyone can get one on video, BP will send you a whole bunch of autographed tape that he wore on his wrists the week before (Bill, he’ll just bring it over to your house). Awesome, right?

WOD 120629:

BB Gymnastics

10X1 Split Jerk off Blocks – you may work up to a 1RM if technique is solid, rest 60 sec.

Notes: You may use racks, but blocks are absolutely the suggestion. These do not have to be UB reps, and are designed to be dropped on the blocks after each rep.

Strength

1a) 10X2 Banded Deadlifts @ 60% Bar Weight + 20% Band Tension – rest 60 sec.

Notes: The bar should be loaded with 60% of the 1RM Deadlift. Band tension should equal 20% of 1RM at the top of the lift. Judging band weight and setup is explained in this DEMO VIDEO

1b) 5X5 Seated Dumbbell Press– heaviest possible (all sets), rest 2+ minutes

Notes: These should be performed between every other set of Deadlifts. These should be done sitting on a box or bench with no back. Feet should be in contact with the floor as the DBs are locked out overhead. Make sure to absolutely lock out every single rep.

Conditioning

“King-Kong”

3 rounds for time of:

1 Deadlift @ 455/300#
2 Muscle-Ups
3 Cleans (full squat) @ 250/165#
4 HSPU

Notes: The Deadlifts in this WOD are designed to be 90% of a 500# Deadlift. If your 1RM is below 455/300# scale the load to somewhere between 90-95% of your 1RM. If your 1RM is above 455/300#, do not scale. The Cleans in this WOD are designed to be 80% of a 315# Clean. If your 1RM is below 265/175# scale the load to somewhere between 90-95% of your 1RM. If your 1RM is above 265/175#, do not scale. HSPU are Regionals standard, and Kipping is allowed.

  1. Any suggestions for King Kong in a garage gym with only 1 barbell? I tried googling for “king kong with 1 barbell” but the only results were *insert punch line here*

    I could load the barbell with the weight for the clean and do more reps of DL, but I can’t clean 90% of my 1RM DL. Thoughts?

    • Yes. Load the bar in such a way that your deadlift weights are on the ‘outside’ of your clean weights. DL – immediately slide off the extra pounds, then MU, alternate bw switching weight off and on after DLs and before cleans so it gets mixed up. Dont go resetting an entirely new barbell. load the bar smart.
      or go buy another barbell; if you were near me, I’ve got about 7 extra bars in my garage that I’ve been trying to get rid of. Some of them have “rigged” sleeves that would be fine for DL, but that would fall apart during clean (drops) and I would just give it to you. any chance you are in northeast Georgia and want a bar?🙂

    • That might work. I’d have to remove 2 plates from each side, and then add back a smaller 1 each round, and then add back the 2 plates and repeat. For a timed WOD that doesn’t seem ideal. The lazy in me would rather just load the bar for cleans and do more DL

      • What do you mean “that might work”? How could it not work? Take weight off then put it back on…it’s not rocket surgery.

  2. My suggestion to all is make sure everything is as close as possible. I lost time in transition and should have went TnG on all cleans.

  3. Hey Rudy thanks for the information on scaling the King Kong. Being a smaller individual i’ve always wondered the best way to scale the conditioning parts of the workouts. I can normally get it right so its around the 12 – 15min range but may be missing some important stimulus you want us to get.

    It might be asking a bit much but i imagine you have a couple of people in mind when you write these things, what are the basic numbers (snatch, clean, DL, Squat, press etc.) for an Rx male and female you expect?

    Cheers,

  4. I’ve been dying to try King Kong and really interested to see how Caleb will do
    – should be interesting. Really wish I’d not done the 30 MUs yesterday, ah well – variability.

      • I’ve seen much better uses of sarcasm on here.

        I had a coach that used to do that, he would combine different sayings and confuse all of us…”you can lead a turnip to water, but you cant make it bleed” stuff like that.

        FYI: I tried googling rocket surgery, it was easier finding Reverse Hyper Substitutes and Low/High Back Squat videos.

    lost time because i was crossing the whole damn gym for the muscle ups and HSPUs but truthfully I’m very weak at going max effort and then jumping right into the next move so I need to improve my conditioning. ~10 minutes. lotta fun

  14. REVERSE HYPER QUESTION?

    When Im lying on the reverse hyper how far should I be hanging off?

    Should my hip crease( where quads meet hip bone) be on the corner of the pad?

    Should the top of my pelvis be on the corner?

    I have looked around to no avail on this issue

  15. BB Gym;
    Worked up to 195. Failed twice. Got 185 for a PR.

    1a) 180

    Conditioning:
    14:00
    Used 285# on first round of deads and 275# for last two rounds. Failed quite a few cleans which I didn’t expect. However, I got all the MUs! I’m excited about that. Missed a few, but it’s definitely progress.

    Str: 225 + 1 30 lb chain per side (subbed chains for bands, seems more hard as fuck and far easier setup with bands next to impossible) Fast, but conservative weight. Will go heavier in the future.

    Db Sp: 60,65(f on last rep),55,55,60 (Lots of experimenting to find my heaviest working weight)

    Cond: KING KONG!

    I started outlaw specifically because of Jay Rhodes, his blog, and this workout. I’ve never tried it but couldn’t wait for it to be programmed!

    1 x Dl: 355 (95% of last tested max)
    2 x MU
    3 x Clean: 205 for first round, 185 for 2 remaining (90% and 85% respectively)
    4 x Hspu
    = 7:49
    Long story short, have to work on at least one aspect of every movement.

  22. BB Gym;

    225, 235, 245, 255×3 , 265×2, 270, 275
    I have realized that the middle weights give me the most trouble. As soon as I get above 270 I get faster.

    1a) 295
    1b) 52 lb KB

    Conditioning:
    2:58

    First time doing King Kong. I could definitely cut some time off of this, I just had no idea how fast to go. This quickly became my favorite workout.

    MFS – 2/3/2

    • Damn man, that looked smooth and easy. You could have shaved at least 30 second off with having your shit setup closer together.

      • Thanks man. Yeah we talked about that after. Now that I’ve done this once, i would love to do it again soon. Honestly just had no idea how it would feel.

      • Nice work Drew! Hoping I won’t have to ubber scale this WOD forever!!! Hope all is well at the home front.

  24. CFG Data:

    SP:
    Did BBG and Strenght – Jerks were up to 100kg then stuck there to keep form work up. Felt pretty weak today

    King Kong (probably my new fave WOD): 7:45
    The cleans slowed me down a lot; someone in the gym said that easily a full 5 minutes of this was spent on the cleans. Nice! 120kg is my 1rm clean so 113.5 was rough.

    CALEB: did all the necessary work

    King Kong: 3:09. Would have been well below 2: but missed a muscle-up in round 3 then rushed a second miss; finally came off the rings for a few seconds, but you know how it is when you fail a muscle up, it’s sort of harder than making one.

  25. Worked up to 175# C&J

    Used 185# Deadlift and 40# Dumbells for strength.

    1 DL 255
    2 Chest 2 bar PU
    3 cleans @ 135
    4 HSPU

    I tried cleans at 165 which would have made pulling the plates off faster – just the 45s on the outside, but i just couldn’t hit them all today, so rather than miss cleans for 20 minutes i changed the plates around to the 45s on the inside and did it at 135

  35. BBG:
    100, 105, 105, 110, 110, 115, 120, 125f, 120, 120. Jerks were a little off today so didn’t go up for a PR. That’s alright, long hot day in the sun.

    Strength:
    1a) 120kg + 44kg band tension at top. These are starting to slow down a bit. It’s borderline dynamic work, takes almost a second to do a rep.
    1b) 60lb, 65, 65, 65, 65

    Coached for 2 hours.

    “King Kong”: 7:13. So the first round I Rx’d which means I got a DL PR at 455lb. Previous 1RM from the total we did before was 440lb. It was pretty ugly so for safety reasons I didn’t want to repeat a new 1RM 2 more times; I scaled down to 420lb (95% of my previous 1RM) and finished it with that. Everything else was Rx’d. Cleans were heavier than I thought they would feel after that DL. First attempt at even a partially scaled King Kong.

    Almost didn’t come in today, glad I did.

    3/3/5 (extra sore from extended mobility mashing I did the other day)

  36. Skipped jerk due to time plus I made up Saturday’s workout yesterday.

    Banded dl: 225# bar + blue band

    DB Press – 55, 60, 70#KB x2

    Conditioning – 4:53
    Pissed about that one, left way too much on the table. Should have done the squat cleans quicker, just walked up and picked up the DL, and knocked myself off the wall twice on rd 2 of HSPU. I am happy about how much easier it was compared to the last attempt, thanks Outlaw Way😉
