"Angie" Games

Does anyone have any strategies for "gaming" Angie?

Of course if you can burn through 100 push-ups and pull-ups without stopping it really doesn't matter

Re: "Angie" Games

I just plan on using lots of broken sets with as little rest as possible.

Pullups - sets of 10
Pushups - sets of 10
Situps - sets of 20 probably (will play this by ear)
Squats - hopefully unbroken, maybe a few leg shakes

I hope to have them partitioned so that I spend no more than 10 or 20 seconds resting between sets. My goal is sub 20 minutes.

Re: "Angie" Games

well partitioning it would make things a bit easier... but is Angie not just suposed to be a burn through one and then move to the other?

correct, to do Angie as Rx'd you have to do crank them out in order (100 pullups, 100 pushups, etc.)

I used the term partition just to mean broken sets.

Re: "Angie" Games

Looking at the comments on the main page it would seem that most people just try to burn through as best they can taking rests when needed -- which is what I usually do.

Just thought that maybe not going to failure (if you cannot make the full 100 of course) might prove a better time.

Re: "Angie" Games

My idea of approaching Angie, which is what I'm going to do next time, is do it in a Tabata style until I accumulate 100 reps per exercise.

Not a bad idea. If you can put up rounds of 20s that's a 10 minute Angie. Well, the pullups will be less and the situps more, generally speaking.

Re: "Angie" Games

If you can do Tabatas, great. But given the typical output curve, that wouldn't work for me (or 90% of the other CFers).

If you can put up 5 rounds of 20s you can probably do Angie straight through with a kettlebell in your teeth!
