    Cleans 155×3, 165×3, 175×1+F Stuck at this weight. Cindy with Justin: somewhere between 15 and 25 rounds.

    Cleans – bunch of singles @ 135#.

    Rocked the WOD with Steph.  Got more rounds myself than I do on my own in Cindy.  I think I didn’t mark a round down as I was taking photos, so I’m confident our official count was 10 rounds each, plus 10 pushups.

    Nice work Steph!

    • steph

    Press 1x1x1 to test if what I have on paper is somewhat right, my paper says 180

    170-175-180 (PR by 25 lbs) Felt light so maybe might have got a extra 5 pounds in

    pull ups overhand

  • Jeff

    Ashleigh (ring rows @ ~waist height) & Jeff
    35 + 8 push ups

    This is an average of ~34 seconds a round.  

    Last time I did Cindy I aimed to do a round per 50 second interval, which would lead to a 24-round pace.  I ended up with 21+ rounds (average 1 round per 56 second interval).

    Positioning myself directly under a short bar for push ups and squats helped.

  • Kameron

    Cleans: 3 at 115; 3 at 135, 3 at 155

    Team Cindy: Kameron & David – 26 rounds + 5 pull-ups + 8 push-ups

    31 rounds with Roopesh Amin

  • Hari

    With Courtney: 32 Rounds Minus 6 squats

  • Steve Slo

    A) 155×3 – 175F (only got 1 good rep) – 165×3
    I’m wondering if my head was really in this… I feel like I could have got the 175 for all 3 reps if I had I just concentrated on the explosion. Next time…

    B) 20 rounds + 4 Pu (rx’d) with Mike (A.?)
    Mike took the lion’s share of the push-ups and I focused on the pull-ups. I did somewhere around 70 pull-ups unassisted… and I’m pretty happy with this. I probably should have set aside the assistance band months ago.

    Really good workout.

  • David T.

    185-195-210 (2)

    Let the bar get out in front of me on the last clean. Took 30 seconds rest and then cleaned it again to make up for the miss.

    23 rounds + 4 pullups with Mike from Boston.
