    I just finished “Barbara”….I almost throw up at the situps at 3rd & 4th rounds! 🙁

    I don’t know if it was because of the gas smell in my garage or the WOD! 🙂

    Anyways, here is my results:


    Five rounds of, each for time:

    20 pullups
    30 pushups
    40 situps
    50 squats

    Rest 3 min. between each round.

    1- 4m30s
    2- 4m39s
    3- 5m5s
    4- 5m14s
    5- 5m24s

    Total: 24:52 (not including the 3 min rests)

    We did “Barbara” Oct. 4th…here was my time.

    1- 4:05
    2- 5:06
    3- 6:29
    4- 6:25
    5- 7:33

    Total: 29m38s

    So I cut off (1) full rounds off my time (5min) …that’s awesome!
    And I have a much more steady pace.

    I managed to do “Barbara” the other day with a work time of 28:13.

    Didn’t record how long it took for each set but will next time. It was a killer and I opened up my hand again with this one!

    Next day on the main Crossfit website was the video on how not to cut open the hands, how ironic!
