20+ Round Cindy

After a year of steady programming I finally managed to get up to 20 rounds, 5 pull ups & 7 push ups on Cindy. The last few rounds form started deteriorating, but I think that was kinda inevitable. Now I just hope I can get under 30 minutes on my next Filthy Fifty (31:46) last time.

Nicely done! I will be exstatic when I get to this point. It may be a while since I just started a couple of weeks ago, haha.

Re: 20+ Round Cindy

Awesome Job!!

I've had a goal of 20 for a while now and hit 19 + 14 squats a few weeks ago...timer went off as I rose to the top of the 14th squat. Was a PR over previous of 18 + 2 Pull-ups I think though, so I was pleased and a little disappointed. Next time.

Re: 20+ Round Cindy

why do you do GHD sit-ups where regular sit-ups are Rx'd?

Re: 20+ Round Cindy

Upscaling, I'll do it for most workouts. I'll do regular situps if I'm trying to sprint through in something like Barbara or Annie. Do you recommend not?

Well...few things. GHD sit-up is a different exercise than a sit-up. The sit-up is in 'Angie' at that point for a reason (exercises get easier as the chipper continues - but you're more tired so the intensity stays relatively high)...A GHD isn't necessarily a scaled sit-up. It's just different.

I don't mess around with the 'Girls' or other benchmarks unless it's still Rx'd. Like I will switch around power clean and squat clean for 'Elizabeth' and next time I do 'Linda' I'll do squat cleans there (Normally do power cleans).

So It's not that I recommend 'Not to', I just look at the benchmarks as a snapshot of your fitness level. if it calls for sit-ups, do sit-ups.

That being said, do what you want!
