I was admittedly apprehensive about going to class last night, but sucked it up and dragged my ass there. It was actually kind of cool because one of the other guys who goes to the gym owns a media company and was taking video of a bunch of us working out. This will eventually be part of a commercial, I am told.
Anyway… if you don’t know what “Cindy” is, it’s a 20 minute AMRAP of:
- 5 pull ups
- 10 push ups
- 15 air squats
According to my last blog about this (about 1.5 years ago), I got 15 rounds, which I am pretty sure isn’t right. I think I got 17 rounds, but whatever.
Last night, I got 18 + 4 pull ups. Here’s the math (geeky, I know):
- 18 * 5 + 4 = 94 pull ups
- 18 * 10 = 180 push ups
- 18 * 15 = 270 squats
OUCH! That’s almost a MURPH (20 rounds)!!
The kicker is that the pull ups were almost all butterfly kipped which is a huge accomplishment for me. Kindel was there helping Fio to coach and she really helped me out. It’s interesting how different coaching styles can help or hinder you.
There are some coaches that I respond really well to. They tell me to do something and my inner dialog says “yes, I will do that”. There are some coaches that just get tuned out. I don’t do this on purpose or out of disrespect, it just happens.
Anyway, I am really happy with my results last night. Even though I didn’t make the board (or even come close), I think I put forth a really good effort. Plus, I am really sore today =)
