Ok, here’s what we TENTATIVELY have scheduled, and what will likely go live on the site Saturday morning at 9am. I am not promising that these are all locked in (except Copenhagen), but they are pretty close. Here goes:

-November 15th-17th (Thurs-Sat) – Copenhagen, Denmark
-January 9th-11th (Wed-Fri) – Sydney, Australia
-February 24th-26th (Sun-Tues) – New Orleans, LA
-March 15th-17th – St. Louis, MO

Yep, I think that’ll just about cover the entire globe, and will get me enough frequent flier miles to fly to fucking Pluto. Again, these dates—with the exception of Copenhagen—are tentative. They are damn close to being set, but some people *cough cough Chad MacKay* are harder to get ahold of than the king of Australia. If you have questions about these dates, post them to comments, and we’ll try to answer them before LGA has time to gas up the flamethrower.

WOD 120822:


1a) 7X3 Banded Deadlifts @ 55% Bar Weight + 20% Band Tension – rest 60 sec.

Notes: The bar should be loaded with 55% of the 1RM Deadlift. Band tension should equal 20% of 1RM at the top of the lift. These are not touch & go reps, each rep should stop completely on the ground. Judging band weight and setup is explained in this DEMO VIDEO.

1b) Bench Press: 2X3 @ 70%, 2X3 @ 75%, 2X2 @ 80%, 1X2 @ 85% – rest 60 sec.

Notes: These are not incline, they should be performed on a flat bench. If you do not know your 1RM, use a weight that’s heavy, but stays fast throughout all sets.


1a) 3XME UB Ring Dips – rest 30 sec.
1b) 3X15 UB KB Snatches (each arm) – heaviest possible, rest 30 sec.
1c) 3X5 Snatch Grip Behind the Neck Press – heavier than last week, rest 30 sec.
1d) 3X15 Reverse Hypers – medium/heavy, rest 30 sec.

Notes: Notice the length of the rest intervals. DO NOT deviate from them. If more than 20 UB Ring Dips are possible add some sort of weight or weight vest.

  1. Here’s a thought: Before letting people enter the training camp, throw up a set x rep scheme and see if they can tell you how many total reps are involved. If they get it wrong, send em packing and keep the check.
    Christ those comments yesterday were retarded

  2. Any Outlaws in San Jose, CA? I just moved up here and I’m in search of a facility and some training partners.

    • I am following the outlaw program and work out at Crossfit Los Gatos. Super close to San Jose. Actually I own it

  3. For anyone that interested, we use a similar set up on a Rogue rig and just keep a set of push through pins (like the ones that hold the crossmember on a yoke) on the bottom holes of the rig. That way we never have to mess with the j cups. The bands wrap around them easily and there’s no sharp edges that would damage the bands.

  4. Im assuming that we should not kip on the ring dips since we are working it as an auxillary strength building movement. Right?

  5. What’s the situation with the camp in Sydney. It currently says “sold out” but from this post i gather is hasnt been confirmed yet?

  6. Strength
    1a. 250 + blue band across
    1b. 185, 200, 215, 225

    These all felt good here.

    1a. 20, 12, 12
    1b. 40 across
    1c. 120, 105, 105
    1d. 95 across (Good Mornings)

    20 unbroken ring dips on that first set was a PR, unfortunately that was really the highlight of this segment of the workout.

    Didn’t want to drop the weight on the snatch grip press but the second set literally went nowhere when I tried it at 120.

  7. One question that hopefully at least one person will answer seriously. Notwithstanding what the training camps page says about beginners, if I am a beginner in terms of strength (i.e., very weak) but not retarded, would it still be worth going? What I mean is, would I really be more of a nuisance (bearing in mind I’m just weak but do have some proficiency)? I would like to start competing in the scaled and/or 40+ divisions. Would prefer the real answer vs. the marketing answer, but hopefully they are the same. I don’t want to take a spot from someone that would end up getting more out of it than me (although seems like I would stand to get much more regardless).

    • If you can handle being the weakest person there (including the ladies) then you will get a lot out of it. If you spend 12 minutes starring at the bar during the first WOD because you didn’t scale it, you’ll waste your money.

    • I’m curious about this too… I started CF in March at 50 yrs old and LOVE the sport. I’m competing scaled at Barbell Masacre in 2 weeks for the experience and motivation to step up my training….thank you Outlaw Way for giving me a template to add to my gym’s programming. I’m registered for the Austin camp and eager to improve, but I don’t want to take up a spot intended for more experienced CFers. And, I don’t wanna get my ass chewed out for being in a different spot on the learning curve than my younger, more experienced comrades 😉 I don’t wanna spend $300, if newbies are frowned upon. I have someone lined up who will buy my ticket. I can wait for next year’s tour, if that’s best 😉 Rudy, what’s the word?

    • I can answer this, as I emailed Laura before the Aussie camps were first announced.

      Just wondering (and you may not be able to answer this)…

      Who is attending your tour workshops? I’m talking broad terms here. Are they the elite and only the elite? Are they the very-nearly Games competitors? Are there *any* Joe Blogs? I’m asking cos I’m a mid-40s will-never-be-a-Games-competitor, just-a-Mum who wants to be better. I can hold my ground with other girls half my age at my gym (snort), but I think in the big picture they probably suck and aren’t anyone Rudy wld ever look twice at. I am *no-where near* (and probably will NEVER be anywhere near) EA. I’ve done very little lifting in my life (does carrying kids count?), and I’ve only been Crossfitting for 18 months. And I still suck.

      Just a little scared in case I find myself standing in Australia beside Chad and wondering WTF I’ve got myself in to.

      Laura’s reply:
      The camps are mostly about learning, not performing. They are open to everyone.

      And then there was a comment about standing beside Chad…

      I missed the first Aussie camps b/c the fricken pages wld load (damn Kiwi on-the-outskirts-of-town broadband!), and Ipswich in January? WTF were people thinking programming that?! I’ll MELT!!! I’ll try for Sydney but have something major on for work late January, plus international flights for me. Makes it bloody expensive. How about Auckland, coach?!

      • Thx Prim. I’m all in! Btw, I loved your comment about holding your own with the youngens at your gym. I can relate. That said, I’m pretty loyal to my coaches who maintain high standards for form. Corner cutting is not tolerated and adding weight at the expense of form is frowned upon. Anyway, I’d like to think our gym represents the sport well. I guess I won’t know till I get out there, compete, and check out the wider CF community. I’m on my way…

        Keep up the high intensity WODs and Outlaw training…getting older doesn’t mean getting crippled, fat, and lazy, right?! I’m not going to the grave pathetic and frail without a fight! I’ll be movin and groovin till I can’t anymore 😉 Hahaha
