Every minute on the minute for 30 minutes perform the following: 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups and 15 squats. Once you fall behind the clock and can no longer continue to maintain a round in that given minute, continue to 30 minutes with as many complete rounds as possible.
If you can finish the 30 minutes add +1 to each exercise, i.e. 6 pull-ups, 11 push-ups, and 16 squats each minute adding an additional rep until you can no longer continue.
Score total rounds on the minute as well as partial rounds and reps completed after falling behind the clock.
Day 34 of the Burpee Challenge! Who’s left?
Curtis and Nan demo the air squat from both perspectives. These two torched Chelsea today!
So this WOD is kinda like Cindy. Only this is the one where you take Cindy on a date, and she turns out to be this annoying long-talker who keeps on going and going and you just want it to be over so you can go home. Okay Chelsea wasn’t that bad but it was a tough WOD. You had to move quickly to keep up with the clock or you instantly moved to an “As many Rounds as Possible” format. It required some management on your part of how you would tackle the pull-ups and move quickly through the push-up and squat portion. For those on bands you had to move quickly on and off the box to save time. Either way though it was a great post-Holiday workout to burn off all our pie and cookies!
I also have to mention that I have to make a correction to the results. Curtis achieved 18 rounds (not 17). I announce this to ensure the integrity of our results as I was confused as a result of mid-WOD communication issues that I will blame on Curtis. If you actually look up the word Curtis in the dictionary or on Wikipedia it says: “Curtis: A name for one who is a trickster, a conniver, one who is sneaky or at times manipulative. In the world of Dora, Curtis is also known as “Swiper”. He will take candy from your kids, and if you are not looking, will take the Sunday paper off your porch.” So that said, you can see why I was reluctant to credit him his 18th round. All scores other than that are correct and we stand by them!
Seriously though, he earned his 18 with blood, sweat and almost puke. It was as inspiring to watch him push that hard as it was to watch Travis chase him in the late class. Great effort as usual today from everyone, whatever your score, you all worked your butts off for 30 minutes. Let’s do it all again tomorrow!
Travis and Eli with synchronized kipping:
This wednesday will be our cross-box WOD Challenge with several local affiliates. All boxes participating will do the same WOD that day and compare results. Scoring is TBD.
