Cindy with Lifts

Wednesday was an epic body weight met-con morning.  We really haven't had too many of these of late.  Here's what it looked like:

3 heavy deadlifts (155#)
3 rounds of Cindy  (5 pullup, 10 pushup, and 15 squats)
Time: 28:30

Who cares about the time, seriously...i pray i never have to do this WOD again.  The deadlifts were a complete afterthought in this workout and pretty much the easiest part.  After the first round of Cindy I thought I was supposed to go do more deadlifts, totally not realizing it was THREE rounds of Cindy...boy was that a game changer.

I got to work on the first set of 3 Cindy rounds.  Pullups went off fine, pushups felt ok, and squats were a little rough the first round from tabata squats the day before.  Then on to round number 2.  DL's were easy, pullups were fine, pushups started to get hard...I pushed through.  Round 3--not even halfway the 3rd set of cindy, the pushups were impossible and I'd broken the pullups into sets of 3/2.  Round 4 was a complete gut check.  The pullups were holding me back and I had to finish in 30 minutes. I dropped to my knees on that middle round.  Round 5 was just sheer HTFU mentality. Get the work done....and I did.  I was smoked afterwards and am quite sore today.  Then I ended up with a head cold/sinus thing so I'll be taking a few more rest days.  But not total rest...lots of painting and housework the next few days!
