The way it used to be…

Saturday 080301
For time:
100 Pull-ups
100 Push-ups
100 Sit-ups
100 Squats
Post time to comments.
Compare to 071211.

According to Hari 150 is the new 100. So this workout now seems quaint and outdated: a throwback to an earlier, simpler time.

    150 all?I’ll be rooting for you hari, I know you could do it.

  • Hari

    Who knew that the day would come when doing a WOD as RX’d would be considered the easy way out?

  • AllisonNYC

    as Rx’d
    tore both of my hands less than half way through. blood and everything
    still 11 minutes 26 seconds faster than last time

  • michelle

    guys have to take one of my kids to dr so cant make 11 class-need to do angie at my crappy gym-no pull up bars-is there a sub that makes sense for pullups?

  • chris gaskin

    30:41 almost as Rx, range of motion on pushups poor.

    Did this at South Brooklyn:
    subbed jumping ring pullups and 30 strict/70 modified pushups.

  • Hari

    23:16 (PR)

  • michelle

    Hari-that is a great time! A2 what do u account for the amazing cut in time? is it the gact that you can do so many more kipping pullups now? thati a huge shave off the time. wow!

  • michelle

    “angie’s friend from out of town where they have no pullup bars-and no cocktail arms”
    40 pushups as rxd,
    other 60 on knees to get full ROM (heard Jacinto in my head screaming chest to deck!)
    pushups took a little over 7 minutes-yikes
    did 11 deadhang pullups after on my door gym piece of crap-took 1:10. I picked 11 bc thats when the door gym fell off the door.

  • Justin

    Oh Angie, my first crossfit WOD. And just in case anyone was wondering, 100 pull-ups still suck… 27:50 as R’xd and coughing up my lungs the whole time. Sorry about that everyone.

  • AllisonNYC

    Michelle: Last time I did Angie was the first time I did it with kipping pull-ups. They took me 16 minutes but they were mostly singles.
    This time they took me 10 or 12 minutes? I started off with 12 in a row not to burn out. Then started a few sets of 5 before my hands tore open and started bleeding around 40. After that they were 1s, 2s and 3s because it freakin hurt. So I couldn’t really use my kip as much as I wanted.
    So I’m not sure it was because I’m better at kipping. I think my push-ups were faster and the sit ups and squats were for sure fatser. I made up a lot of time with them.
    I think over all my conditioning has just improved since last time. I was able to move from each exercise without a break and take shorter rests.
    I’m happy about that because I’m starting to worry that I’m making big jumps in the strength department but not in the met con. I think I should start focusing on getting my times down.
    But.. not as fast as Hari. He seriously DOVE from the pull-up bar into push-up position! I’ve never seen anything like it. Good work Hari.

    Greetings from Quantico, VA. I’m seeing all these awesome CF workouts and I miss good old fashioned intelligent PT. I’ve got a good one for you all; we’ll call it Tuesday Sucked Ass.
    Martial Arts II
    Rifle bayonet combat.
    Combat Readiness Test
    Rope climb in full combat gear.
    Run 3 miles in combat boots and utilities with M16A2 rifle, 2 full canteens and wargear with kevlar helmet, under 27 minutes.
    Casualty Evacuation: 100m fireman carry; run there and carry casualty back (200m total) under 45 seconds
    2:00 max pushups (30 passing, 50 to max)
    Fire and maneuver, high crawl, low crawl, rush and attack stationary targets (completion).
    Add 3 mile hike to bivouac location and night land nav and stir.
    Week 7 starts Monday, and so far so good. I went to call Marisela today, and realized I had hers and Alison’s #s mixed up, so Marisela needs to email me at As of now, it doesn’t look as if I’ll be coming back to NY before my follow-on school. I’ll be up for weekends though, and anticipate hitting up the noon class on Saturday. None of this Fran crap though, I need more than 5 minutes of workout time!
    Hope all is well,

  • for all you paleo people that cook

    33:45 (benchmark). I don’t know how to feel about this time. It is the first metcon WOD that I did as Rx’d, so I feel a little proud, but I also think that my strength (or lack thereof) lead this to much less metcon than it should be. Well, guess I have to start grinding out the pulls and pushes. See you guys on Monday or Tuesday.

  • When I first did this workout I did pullups with a band and I’m not sure I was able to do all 100 pushups without resorting to dropping my knees. It took me forever. I think the first time I did it with real pullups took me 30 minutes to do just the 100 pullups. So when I do the whole workout in less than 30 minutes, I’m a happy guy.
    Still there is always plenty of room for improvement.

  • Hari

    If you want some perspective, here’s my history with this Angie:
    080301 23:16
    071212 25:00
    070606 31:23
    070402 35:33
    070131 39:55
    Don’t worry whether its metcon or not. Just keep showing up and doing the work.

  • michelle

    yeah kurt it would have taken me a good 30 mintes at least just to do the pullups bc i could never had done 100 kipped and i would have had to have grabbed the band at some point so that would have put my score way into he 45 minute range and i am sure everything else -at least pushups would have slowed down having had just done the pushups…
    i mean look what hari has done in one year!

  • Tiffany

    Large band pull-ups
