My first attempt at a Cindy WOD....

5 pull-ups
10 push-ups
15 squats

AMRAP in 20 mins. I thought it wouldn't be too difficult.

I was wrong.

21 rounds.

Here is my sweat Angel to prove my level of difficulty with today's WOD....


The wind was blowing on my porch so it dried very fast, but it was there. Went right thru my T and sweat-shirt.

Eric, unless I seriously am misinterpreting your pic, you did Cindy in a speedo?

That made me smile, thanks

Re: My first attempt at a Cindy WOD....

So, if I did Cindy wearing a speedo, in about 40 degree weather, would that be some kind of record?

Hmmmmmmmm? Interesting

Not bad for a whack at Cindy. My first whack at her was 13 rounds scaled to the little band and knees. When you're starting from the bottom, though, the only way to go is up.
