Monday's Workout

Back home, and back to CrossFit!

Strength Skill:

I did plenty of Turkish Get-Ups back when I was doing my Monster Mashup routine earlier this year, so after shaking off the cobwebs, I got through these just fine.


"3/4 Cindy" -- AMRAP in 15 minutes of:
  • 5 pull-ups
  • 10 push-ups
  • 15 squats
A full Cindy is 20 minutes long. A couple of new folks have joined our 5 a.m. class, so we did just 15 minutes -- and for that, I'm grateful. Not that today's WOD wasn't incredibly fun, mind you. I love bodyweight workouts, and greatly prefer them to metcons that emphasize lifting heavy barbells.

Result: I completed 15 rounds + 3 pull-ups in 15 minutes. I shot out of the gate, but slowed substantially towards the end.

(I briefly considered pacing myself, but decided that it didn't make sense to do so with such a short workout. I may feel differently if/when we do a full Cindy, though.)
