Re: "Angie" Games

I played it by ear, doing sets of however many I thought was difficult but not going to failure, and it looked something like this:

pull-ups 15-10-10-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5

push-ups 30-20-10-10-10-10-10

sit-ups 20-20-10-10-10-10-10-10

squats 100 unbroken

Time was 24:54, pull-up about 9 minutes, squats were 2 1/2 minutes, pushups and situps about 6 minutes each.

Tabata-style makes sense too... if I had done mine that way for the first 3 exercises and put up the numbers displayed here, that'd be a time of about 18 minutes

Re: "Angie" Games

I did it by doing a max set of pullups, getting off the bar and resting a few seconds, then getting back on and doing more pullups, etc. I ended up doing sets of 3 pull seperated by 4 or 5 seconds rest. I did roughly the same thing for pushups but my sets shrank more slowly. Situps were the only thing I really "gamed" by switching foot position (bent leg to straight leg) every 10 reps. Yes I took rests, and yes my sets shortened, but the initial sets were big enough that I still finished with 17:49, which is a good time. I think that while physically pacing yourself might be a good idea, from a mental point of view going max effort and then picking up pieces is a better prep. for getting the whole set.

Re: "Angie" Games

I've only done "Angie" once. I knocked out as many reps as I could without going to failure and then did them Tabata style. If you could manage 30 to 40 reps of each then the rest is downhill. Obviously I couldn't keep up 20 sec of pull ups after the 1st set. (10-5 at a time) You need someone to keep your time and encourage you throughout. I beleive my time was 16:41?
