Complete as many rounds in 20 minutes as you can of:

5 Pull-ups
10 Push-ups
15 Squats

My total: 11 rds + 7 push ups

Pull-ups felt awesome today, almost effortless. Oh - and I did them all UNBROKEN. Yay! Push-ups kicked my butt. Since mid-summer I have been making a conscious effort to go "chest to the floor" on all my push ups and this really slows me down. But, I think I'm getting better benefit from doing that than just a half-ass push up where you go half way to the ground and push back up. That shouldn't even be considered a legitimate "rx" push-up. So, between having this cold/respiratory problem going on and being on a Nyquil hangover, I'd say I did pretty darn good on Cindy today. I was just off my PR by a round and a half. Yay me. ;)

The strength component today was Awesome Fun!!

One power clean or squat clean (your choice) on the minute, every minute:

Rounds 1 through 5 I did power cleans at 65 lbs each
Rounds 6 - 15 I did squat cleans as follows

I nailed the squat clean on the 125 lbs, but lost my balance and fell on my butt. For the record, if this happens to you, there is no need to panic. The bar will clear you completely - well unless you're 6 months pregnant or something. Ha ha. It just rolled right over me, no problem.

I loved this workout, and I want to do it again soon so I can go heavier. I know I could've gone way heavier on the squat cleans...they just felt great this morning.
