Dancing with “Cindy”

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
15 squats

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.
