Angie in 18.07 but look at logsitall...

I performed Angie today in 18.07 of which I was extremely pleased.As a 44/190lb male I was happy .I looked at Logsitall and saw a 55 year old male had done 8 minutes ! I had the Crossfit DVD and saw Greg Amundson perform Angie in 12 minutes and he was doing pull ups in sets of 30.So I am a little bit skeptical about some of the times on Logsitall.

No sour grapes and I truly appreciate if anyone has produced a great athletic performance but ...

I fully expect to be shot down in flames for casting aspersions .Whether full rom was used on some performances could explain things.However I feel that it is worthy of discussion.:stir:

Agreed, I find it hard to believe someone pulled off an 8 minute Angie, I'm not saying it could not be done, but it is hard to believe.

And yes Guy you're time is good.

18:07 is a good time, and I am with the others posted when I say I definitely do not believe an 8min Angie.

When in doubt on a WOD like "Angie", just look at Speal's time and go from there. That is seriously one of the best ways to gauge what is humanly possible...

Exactly. For example from last month's Angie:

Bwt: 137

As Rx'd: 8:57 (pr)

Always take everything you see posted with a grain of salt. Times posted can be for WODs that are modified or scaled and those details are not included. The WOD can be totally misinterpreted by the poster and the times could be off as a result. They could be trolling. Or they could be a firebreather.

As a rule of thumb for me - Don't assume one way or the other and compare always against your own times.

PS - Congrats on sub 20. That is a most excellent time.

Re: Angie in 18.07 but look at logsitall...

Yes I agree and thanks for the comments.In reality only compare yourself against how you were years or months ago.
Interestingly when I started CF I was a 12-14 round person for Cindy and now I can do 20.

As I said sub 9.00 is amazing and probably can be done but I do take some posters with a pinch of salt.

I remember seeing a 34 round Cindy posted and I would be interested to see the technique employed for that i.e full range of movement etc.

I believe 39 rounds is the record for Cindy and it's legimate with witnesses. That one is more fathomable, as it's 1 round every 30 seconds. Lots of people can sustain that pace for a few minutes, but only the elites for 20.

I remember the 34 round, but didn't realize someone had posted a 39 round cindy... Amazing!

I've done a couple of "5-minute cindys" and my best was 8 rounds + 4 pullups. The first couple of rounds I'm close to 30 seconds a round, and then by round 6 or so the pushups start costing me 5-10 seconds a round. I just can't imagine holding that pace for 20 minutes! Most recent full cindy was 20 rounds.

Re: Angie in 18.07 but look at logsitall...

That is amazing as the transition time for me usually takes a few seconds i.e dropping down off of the pull up bar,getting into push up position and then from there getting up to the squat position!
