Tuesday 10/09

Complete as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of:

25 Pull-Up
50 Push-Up
75 Air Squat

In theory today looks a lot like a workout we’ve done many times named “Cindy”. For the uninitiated, “Cindy” is a 20 min AMRAP of 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups and 15 air squats. A solid score for that workout is in the 20 round range, which equates to 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups and 300 squats.

Today, it’s unlikely that many, if any of the athletes in class will achieve that much total volume and here’s why.

There’s a big difference between being able to take the relatively smaller chunks of work (5, 10, 15) and having to bite off much bigger chunks (25, 50, 75). There’s going to be more rest and more shaking limbs out.

That’s OK!

The goal today is to work on some of that muscular endurance, choose a scale that’s not too easy and grind through the 20 minutes with the knowledge that no matter how much work you get done it’ll all be over soon, and you’ll be better off for having done it.
