I'm working my way through the named WOD's that I haven't done yet, and I have a question on this one...

Each minute on the minute for 30 minutes, for rounds-
-5 pullups
-10 pushups
-15 squats

So, if I finish round 1 in 15 seconds (ha!), I have 45 seconds to rest, correct? And if I finish it in 1:15 (much more likely), I have 45 seconds to rest. Did I read that right?

Yes.

No, at that point you're a round behind [the one that begins at 1:00], so you should just keep going until you catch up, or can't do it anymore.

Good practice for Chelsea is Cindy, as they're fundamentally similar, but take different strategies.

I thought you were out once you exceed the 1 min per round allowed time? For example, let's say round 11 goes 15 sec over, then your score is 10 rounds. Am I right?

Jonas, I guess you're right, but that's a pretty strict way of interpreting the workout. In my opinion, the best way to train for Chelsea (if you intend to...) is to follow Chelsea's protocol until you fail, then to switch to Cindy and bang out a couple more rounds without worrying about time.

For modifying chelsea, you can also try Chelsea(-1). or minus two, etc.
Subtract one rep from every exercise so each round would be(4/9/14).

If you are a stud, try Chelsea(+1)=(6/11/16), or two, or three(8/13/18). I think I have seen a Chelsea(+3) completed. Not sure I've ever seen a +4.

And I'm pretty sure you're done when you do not complete the reps in one minute.
