Cripers, that's an early post if I ever saw one. I figgered it was time for these ladies...

Nice photo of AFT from the CF games.

Comment #5 - Posted by: Trevor S at July 7, 2007 6:09 PM

I love it when the workouts are posted early. I have all night to anticipate the fun for the next day. It should be interesting to see how much I've improved on Cindy from last time.

Comment #6 - Posted by: Anon at July 7, 2007 6:13 PM

I did this one the other day at my mine camp. They've got a pathetic excuse for a gym there but thank God its got a pull up bar.

22 rounds

assisted pushups (knee) after round 12.

Comment #7 - Posted by: TMar at July 7, 2007 6:23 PM

Oh ya, i forgot to add - that was on Cindy...

Comment #8 - Posted by: TMar at July 7, 2007 6:26 PM

Does anyone have any good recommendations for building a ring set and parallette(sp?) stands? Just finished with summer school so I'm heading back home and I'll have tools to mess around and make some equipment for myself.

Thanks for the help in advance!

Comment #9 - Posted by: James D at July 7, 2007 7:10 PM

Sweet...I can do Cindy in my apartment. Does that sound bad?

Comment #10 - Posted by: Skeletor at July 7, 2007 7:49 PM

How do most people do their pull-ups with this kind of workout, strict or kipping?

Holy incredible fight night in the UFC! Sherk is a little monster.

Comment #16 - Posted by: gaucoin at July 7, 2007 10:44 PM

The fights were great live at Arco. The Sherk fight was the only one worth seeing, the rest were pretty lame. Tito had that fight, its too bad he lost a point from the ref. Evans was great at backing up.

I'm amazed at Sherk only because he got choked hard, got out of it and then proceeded to eat knees and not learn from each knee he took, and put his head right back into a choke position. He then failed miserably at taking the back and doing something with it. All of the people in the stands near me were pretty disgusted with his poor ground work in that area.

Comment #17 - Posted by: Angry G at July 7, 2007 11:04 PM

M 30 197lbs 20 rounds in 19:45 not all bad

Comment #18 - Posted by: Hans at July 7, 2007 11:08 PM

For sure gaucoin, but didn't that Tito Ortiz Rashad Evans fight suck or what?

Cool, Cindy's back! I can't wait to tackle this one again, and it's great cos I can do it in my house. Last time I was only short the squats for a complete 20rds. I am confident that I can complete somewhere around 22-23 rds this time.

Comment #19 - Posted by: Harry at July 7, 2007 11:11 PM

for mary, it says 10 alternating one legged squats. Does that mean 10 each leg every round or 5 each leg every round? or example, 10 the first round on the left, then 10 the second round on the right

Cindy
14 rounds, plus 5 pullups and 5 pushups, in 20 minutes.

My first Cindy. Bleh. I should have done better, but I'm blaming some of it on general fatigue. The pushups are what killed me, I banged out the squats and pullups. Not terrible but I was hoping for at least 15 rounds and I couldn't finish that last one out before time ran down. Only up from here.

By the way, thanks for the early posting. I'm in Japan so I usually don't see the WOD until after lunchtime. Today it was up when I checked it in the morning. Thanks!

I could not help it, as soon as I saw that Cindy was up I thought about adding a mile before and after 20 rounds. I have always done a straight Murph without breaking into sets and have been thinking about doing this since last week, so here we are.

Straight Murph - 06/29/07 - 52.37

Today - 1 mile - 9:08
20 rounds of Cindy - 19:59
1 mile - 10:16

the pushups are what killed me. I don't seem to have improved in my pushups as I have in my pullups.

Wondering if pushups are usually the weakeness in this exercise?

Does anyone have any suggestions on improving pushups.

Thanks

Cindy
11 rounds, 3 pullups
Hard to kip on the 5-foot high cable pull bar, but wanted to compare to my original CF WOD, where I got 10 rounds, using a 50# assist for 7 rounds and knee pushups for 4. Good to see the progress.

Admittedly my pullups were weak, had to resort to jump pullups to do the last 6 rounds or so.

Comment #34 - Posted by: Gedo at July 8, 2007 7:53 AM

#31, "As Rx'd" means "as prescribed". Doing a workout as prescribed means that you did a workout exactly as written on the front page without any scaling or modifications.

Comment #42 - Posted by: JDale at July 8, 2007 8:28 AM

I've always completed "Cindy" never "Mary". can somebody clarify the one leg squat? Do you perform 10 reps on each leg for 1 set? If so is it 10 on the right followed by 10 on the left or do you alternate 1 on left, 1 on right etc?

Comment #43 - Posted by: George_Toronto at July 8, 2007 8:29 AM

29/M/185

"Mary" 7 rnds.

I've never attempted Mary, because I can't easily do a one-legged squat on my left leg (ACL reconstruction left me with nerve damage). But today I grabbed my PVC warmup pipe and used it for support. Tough workout. My goal for Cindy is still 30; my PR is 24.

Comment #50 - Posted by: OPT Mommy at July 8, 2007 9:16 AM

“Cindy” as RX’ed
10 rnds.

I started CF in April 07 and started to doing CF correctly since May (it’s a big site, took time to read most of it :)).
This is my first post.
I am 33 178 lbs (lost 27 lbs since I started my fitness training in March 06) CF was first introduced to me from a friend in the gym when I started complaining that I hit a plateau and could not lose anymore weight once I hit 185 lbs and my increase in weight on my lifts would not go beyond their current position.
If you do the math I have lost a solid 8 lbs since CF and my idea of strength and what it is has changed dramatically. For that I say “THANK YOU CF!!”
I have one concern/question: Am I at where I am supposed to be at by this time or am I still doing things wrong? I have read the posts since I started going to this site back in April and it seems that others are further in their development then I. I work the WODS hard (puked a few times) and have seen improvements but not that great of improvements.
I do the 3 on 1 off with the WODS. My routine since May has been to start with the CF warm up, as RX’ed, then the WOD (mod’ed to my PR) and finish with a run (started with a mile then went to two). Is there anything else I should be doing or should I just have more patience?

Thanks for whoever read this long post and to whoever decides to reply.

1st time doing "Mary":

Also my first time doing Pistols. I wasn't able to balance well enough to do them without grabbing onto something. Eight years in the Marines has taught me a good strict pullup, but now that's all I can do. I want to get that good economical kip down.
I guess I know what to practice on the next rest day.

Did Cindy.. nailed 22 rounds in the 20 minutes... Pretty happy with that.. Finished up practicing snatches and cleans and I can conclude that my technique sucks. I have been trying to conciously start kipping and couldn't do it until today I naturally started a bit... more happiness..

Popped on the fancy weighing machine at the gym. Came in at 5'10'', 12st 3lb, 11% BF... 5'10'' bugger.. I thought I was taller than that.

First WOD ever. 14 rounds. I think I would have done more but could not get used to kipping again. Needless to say all of my pull ups were strict. After my legs stopped shaking, I did some abs and tested myself on the C2. Did 500m in 1:47.1 but was smokechecked!!!

Okay, who wants to buy 3 kettlebells... just kidding... seriously though, I go into the dungeon with the WOD in mind, then I see them out of the corner of my eye... beckoning me to play with them. So I pick one up start swinging it around and before I know it, I'm squatting them, cleaning them, jerking them...argh. Then, I'm just done for to even think about the WOD... so, please I must rid myself of them or destroy them! But, on the other hand, sheesh are they a great workout!

Took on Cindy this morning after a mile run with some good fun parkour thrown in on the way to the park.

21 rounds completed as RX'ed and added in 6 rounds of sprints uphill with side shuffles and 10 dips in-between. Feels like I may have tweaked my right shoulder maybe from overuse or just bad dip form.

The people at BrandX always say to put something you're not good at in your warmup, so maybe start to include 3 sets of 10 push ups in your warmup and concentrate on good technique.

Brand X pack mod - rounds in 20:00 of 3 chin-ups, 6 push-ups, 9 squats

Total - 10, +1 from the last time I did this workout. Small overall volume improvement, more significant improvement in work over time. I blew through the first five rounds (hooray for kipping), then my forearms started hollering and I had to switch to chin-up singles on the easy to reach wall-mounted bar. The last couple of sets had me helping myself up with my feet on the wall. I suspect I'm pulling too much with my arms rather than with my back.

At home in Rockford, IL visiting parents. Had a tough time finding a pull up bar without paying for a day pass at GloboGym. Ended up doing Cindy using a thick tree branch for pull-ups on a very warm day in the park.
19 rounds with 12 seconds left. Not quite my 20 in a previous effort, but I have been sick for a week, so not bad.

Cindy
22 rds + 5 Pulls, 10 Pushes, 9 Squats.
A full round short of a PR. Heat, I think. Last time I did it first thing in the morning. Is it just me or does anyone else have horrible DOMS in their biceps after the hopper WOD? I can barely straighten my arms all the way. My SDHPs may have been AFU.

KMan, welcome home! 16 months is way too long.

Comment #115 - Posted by: JPW at July 8, 2007 2:01 PM

I'm a couple-times-a-week gym guy, who does the standard isolation exercises, hates pullups, and hates to run.

A friend of mine whos in the Marines told me about Crossfit on Thursday and how its the most amazing fitness system ever. So I got home, I read the site over completly and tried out 40 air squats with perfect technique, because, seriously, how hard could they be?
Friday, I could barely walk.
Saturday went hiking for 6 miles in pain and soreness.

Today, I figured I'd officially start my WOD career, no matter how hard it hits me, Im on the wagon from here on out.

So Officially:

23/m/195#
6 rounds of Cindy in 10:00, before complete and utter muscle fatigue and collapse. I'm beat. The masochistic side of me is loving it. I cant wait to see my long term improvement. I think Crossfit is going to be my new hobby.

Thanks to all the crew for the site, WODs, videos, and explanations. You're making a believer out of me already.

Stopped counting - knee is bugging me on squats, so I went slowly and ultimately swapped out situps for squats.

Comment #129 - Posted by: GinaC at July 8, 2007 3:02 PM

gotta tell you...I have had kipping bred out of me for years and am having trouble catching on. Strict pullups are what I do...working on the kipping. its getting there. 6 years of northern chinese martial arts have made my legs very strong, but left my upper body lacking a bit. So I chose to do

24yom
6'3"
225lbs

"Mindy"
5 pullups (Still brutal. I've just never been a pull-up guy)
10 pushups
10 pistols (These things are gravy. My first Sifu called em Tam Toi's. Drilled these into my muscle memory like a wood screw.)

You just have to trust that the program works. If you have been out of the loop or beening doing different types of PT before ever trying crossfit, it takes awhile for your body to get aclimated to the functional fitness that Crossfit provides. It is like doing pullups your whole life and then switching to chinups without ever doing them much, it is different and doesn't feel right, but with time you get better. Don't get discouraged by some of the workout results that are posted here. These are people that are dedicated and have been at it for along time, I mean just PT freaks! I hope my 2 cents along with others encouragement helps you out, and keeps you in the program.

Comment #141 - Posted by: Ryan at July 8, 2007 3:35 PM

#51: try the Paleo Zone rigamarole, at least for a while. And make sure you are getting enough sleep.

Do the WOD, eat properly, get 8-9 hours of sleep, and do it again. The sleep and the proper nutrition could help a ton if you haven't got them straightened out yet. If you're not sleeping enough, that could be holding you back, your body may not be able to recover enough, especially 3-on, 1-off. Losing weight but not getting stronger sounds like maybe a sleep issue.

I blow off the WOD if I feel like it would lead to re-injury or unproductive overtraining. (Sometimes I will repent by doubling-up the next day, though) I'm not a monster like OPT or AFT or Kelly Moore, but I do OK, and have made a ton of progress since I started about a year ago.

Hope it helps. Losing ~30# is itself a huge task.

Welcome Dan #116 - CrossFit is the best system out there for us folk who want to be all round great athletes. Lot's of times it's gonna kick your butt and challenge you both physically and mentally. There will be days you are flying high and others will leave you somewhat discouraged. That's the beauty of life and CF. Show up everyday for the WOD and dig in. Admittedly although I have been at it for over a year I still struggle with getting comfortable with uncomfortable sometimes but am leaps and bounds better than when I started.

Comment #150 - Posted by: Geo at July 8, 2007 4:18 PM

#51, recovery and nutrition are big components that are often missed. Get plenty of rest, eat meat,veggies,nuts and seeds and decrease the starchy carbs like grains. Proper post workout recovery/refueling is vital too. As mentioned earlier, the Paleo diet is worth looking into. A great resource is Paul Chek's book "How to eat,move and be healthy" If you have time and energy spend about 1/2hr before the workout getting warmed up and working on some skills that will benefit the workout then depending on what the workout was, spend a little time after working on some of your weak areas. As an example if the WOD is a strength only workout then I will add a short duration met-con workout after like a 500m row.

Comment #151 - Posted by: Intent Training at July 8, 2007 4:26 PM

Cindy - 9 rounds

#51, hey you did one more round then I did! Hang in there. I just started crossfit last month after years of the basic chest day, leg day, back day, etc. workouts. I was bored out of my skull. I have seen more improvements with a month of cross fit then I did in the last year of traditional weight lifting. So even if your progress seems slow, the fact that your are progressing at all should be cause for celebration. Go for it!

Comment #152 - Posted by: Pickle at July 8, 2007 4:32 PM

To Comment #9; I used tie down strapps and hand grips. The grips like you use on the pull downs. They look just like the Tactical rings you can buy and they work great. They are portable and you can bring them to the gym and use them on the pull up bars.
I will have to do Cindy tomorrow. Start with a 5k run then go directly to Cindy. Can't wait.

Comment #172 - Posted by: Scott at July 8, 2007 6:20 PM

#51 EnDeR--

I'm 33 as well and I can say although we're not ancient yet, the body does take more time to recover as it gets older (some are more resilient than others) and I'm sure some of the amazing "senior" atheletes we have here can speak with more authority. Just be careful to not push yourself too hard, too fast looking for changes on the scale or in strength. I started giving myself a bit of golfers/tennis elbow working MU and high-rep PU on a daily basis. My experience has taught me that CF is very unique because much of the improvements are sometimes difficult to spot in the short term. Much of the foundational improvements will be found in core strength, flexibility, balance and coordination. I think it took me 2-3 months before I really started to see differences in my WOD scores. At the 6mo mark I wrote down some goals (like max deadlift, rounds of Cindy, clean and jerk, OHS, etc.) and it has already made a difference in the way I refine my WU/WOD and helps me SEE my progress. I hope you stick it out. I look forward to seeing your scores in the future.

Best,

EnDeR, #51, stick with it, it will definitely pay off. Watch your nutrition, and don't worry as much about your weight, as you build muscle (and you will), you may not lose much more weight, but you will lose fat and feel better. And remember, you're not competing against anyone but yourself. Happy Crossfitting...

Comment #190 - Posted by: FireSmac at July 8, 2007 7:29 PM

Caught up with Hopper work-out from the games; details there.

Pure genius, if you think about it. Instant O2 debt from the row, and "pre-fatigue" of the pulling muscles to boot. The longer I do this the more layers of the onion get peeled away, the more subtle and elegant this program becomes.

Really fun, still, on both the physical and intellectual plane, Coach. Thanks.

Just a quick question about Mary:
How low are we supposed to go on the single leg squats? I didn't see a video posted and I wasn't sure if they are supposed to be a full "pistol" or until the opposite knee hits the ground.

13 rounds with a frag vest. I was hurting after the tenth set.

I suggest trying a weighted vest if you can get your hands on one. Especially those guys that said they did over 20 rounds.

Cindy:

I feel like I have made some serious progress on my Kipping. I kind of "get it" now with the reverse C and pushing away at hte top. I'm not quite as loose as some of the others I've seen, but I was able to pop out 5 at a time much faster than ever before.

I completed this WOD as Rx'd with 11 & 2/3 rounds completed (I had just started squats when time ran out). While I did have a couple of moments with my hands on my hips huffing and puffing, none of my sets were broken.

Aimed to do a round a minute for as long as i was able. Stayed with it for 15 mins before the press-ups started slowing right down so rested a minute then finished out as strong as poss.

Ended up with 18 rounds and 5/10/12.

All pull-ups kipping on rings with full extension, all press-ups chest/ chin/hips to floor, all squats from dynamax ball to full extension.

Happy with that.

Didn't have a timer today so did 11 rounds of Cindy (previous PR was 11 rounds + 5 pullups I think). We were aiming for 15 but the pullups just weren't gonna happen. Muscle fatigue for Jerry and my right arm is still hurting on the pullups. I keep pushing just to the point that it really hurts instead of just taking a few days off.

My first post. Excited for what CrossFit can do. My workouts have been pretty mediocre to this point, so now I'm gonna get my butt kicked... (I just don't want to see pukie...)

I have to admit that I was doubting the wisdom of starting CF since there aren't many girls posting. It's hard to figure how I'm doing compared to a bunch of males. But I want to be knocking out pull-up's like Annie this time next year.

Cindy (modified)
9 rd's plus 5 pull-ups & 5 squats

Had to have some machine help on the pull-ups. (You gotta start somewhere right?) And the combo of pull-ups and push-ups sent the push-ups onto my knees by the end. Will I stop getting the twitching muscles eventually?

It felt good. I mean if feeling like crap is good.

29/M/150

Did workout yesterday (July 9th).

First, I ran 3 miles on the treadmill in 20:47.

Then, I did Cindy - but I did push-ups in sets of 20 and I carried two 25 pound dumbells during the squats (sets of 10).

After the run, I was really exhausted and winded. It is amazing how much harder some of these exercises are when you are winded.

4 sets in about 15 minutes. Afterwards, I started feeling dizzy, so I had to sit down for about 10 minutes. My left ear had popped (but not my right) during one of the sets of dips. After sitting down for ten minutes, I did one more set - so 5 sets altogether in about 25 minutes.

I feel fine today.

Cindy - first one in a while. 19 rounds plus 5 pulls. Squats to low box, push-ups on parallettes. Way down on previous numbers, indicating loss of fitness and some injury issues but also doing the exercises much better.

wife christine did 17 rounds of cindy as rxd. wow.

Comment #327 - Posted by: mrader at July 11, 2007 6:43 PM

Can't squat due to a strain (vastus medialis), but I can swing a KB...

"Cindsky" = max rounds in 20 minutes:

5 pullups
10 pushups
15 KB swings (16 kg)

10 rounds + 4 pullups

Much stronger on pullups than a typical Cindy--good sign for when I can squat again. KB swings were tougher than squats due to abbreviated breathing pattern.

My first Cindy affair, and we've done it 30 times as Rx by Doc.
I think 32 or 33 next time is reasonable.

Comment #369 - Posted by: Art at September 30, 2007 9:45 AM

CINDY:
26 rounds as required
(33 yr. male, 133 lbs)
Next time I'm going to try to keep a split style stop watch with me to see how long each round/set takes and see where I start slowing down. I would ideally like to get about 30 rnds or so. This was a good burn - I have done Cindy a few times before, but this time I tried more pacing and also to minimize any rests between sets and exercies since they're all opposing and different muscle areas per exercise. Rest is very mental. I know that I can do more if I'm not too sore and if I'm well rested. Two kids under 2 makes getting a good night sleep a challenge, but that's the best part.. 3,2,1 GO damn it. 20 minutes of personal pushing, stretch and get on with it.
