CrossFit has two types of workouts in particular that mean more to the “community” and the people who complete them. The first are the “Hero” workouts, which are in memory of some Service Personnel (Military, Police, Fire, First Responders, etc). The other are the “Girls” workouts, which take the same method of naming Hurricanes, and use women’s name to distinguish them from other workouts.

In my opinion, the most common of the “Girls” workouts is the “Cindy/Mary” day. On these days, athletes have the choice of two workouts to complete. Both of these require one to complete as many rounds as possible of the specific rep scheme in 20 minutes. Cindy is more basic movements, so the expected result is more rounds. Mary includes far more complex and skilled movements, so while much more taxing, fewer rounds are expected.

Workout of the Day:
Complete as many rounds in 20 minutes as you can of:
5 Pull-ups
10 Push-ups
15 Squats
Complete as many rounds in 20 minutes as you can of:
5 Handstand Push-ups
10 One legged squats, alternating
15 Pull-ups

Jamie is very close to saying goodbye to bands to assist him on pull-ups! The next workout we do with a lower number of reps, we’re going to give it a shot. Great job making so much progress, so quickly Jamie!!

Athlete Results:
Jamie (2 Banded Pull-Ups)- 10 Rounds + 5 Pull-Ups + 10 Push-Ups
