Thought I would ask again since the previous thread on this was inconclusive.

What would Murph do --

1. All 100 pullups, then all 200 pushups, then all 300 squats?

2. "Cindy"-style (20 rounds of 5 pullups, 10 pushups, 15 squats)?

3. Or the dark horse candidate -- 10 sets of 10 pullups/20 pushups/30 squats?

4. Or is it "who cares, just get it done?

I opted for "Cindy"-style today (I'm running way behind) and it took me plenty long enough. But my time would have been longer, and the last run more brutal, if I'd gone with option 1.

I think that the way it was intended was option 1. You are correct that this made for a horrendous adventure. Any way you slice it, it would be tough but #1 would be the worst in my opinion. I did it as #1 and hope never to see it again.

If I knew Murph, and he knew me and my level of fitness, I think he'd be happy with #4.

Especially if I did it all the same day!! :lol:

I can only do 10 rounds of "Cindy" so was pretty pleased to do 20 rounds as part of "Murph," even if my total time was 1:16.

I can and do scale workouts, but not the "memorial" ones if there's any way I can get 'em done at all. (E.g. can't do HSPUs so on "J.T." I subbed DB shoulder presses -- but ultimately failed on the ring dips.)

I know the argument is that doing "Murph" "Cindy-style" is more power output. But I also know that we don't always go for that -- see "Angie," for example.

I did the first option last time. 60+ minutes...ouch.

If this WoD comes up again, I'll be taking door #4, Monty...
