My gym has changed up our monthly benchmark workouts.
We used to do “Angie” as a benchmark (100 pull ups, 100 push ups, 100 sit ups, 100 squats), but now we’re doing “Cindy” as one of the three monthly benchmarks. Naturally, I think “Cindy” is awesome.
AMRAP 20 min
5 pull ups
10 push ups
Results: 15 rounds + 5 pull ups + 1 push up
I used a blue band and did the push ups on my knees.
According to my logs, about a year ago was the last time I took on “Cindy” — and I mean the full one, not one scaled because of pregnancy. I was pleasantly surprised to see that I have maintained pretty well, even performed a little better — considering how much has happened in the past year.
And even cooler — Zach is my I AM CROSSFIT coach. I found out this morning, and my pre-challenge body comp is today. (Chuckle) This should be interesting. But to be honest, no matter what the results are, I’m not worried. I’ve been through a lot in the past year, and even if my body fat is way high, that’s OK. I’ve got somewhere to go from here.
Next time I do this benchmark, I plan to do the push ups from my toes and either use a purple band or no band at all. I’m ready to lean out again. I’m ready to crush some goals.
