Included in warm-up:

Squat Therapy!

“Regardless of what the problem is, the answer is to squat.”

Those are the words of CrossFit founder and CEO Greg Glassman.

WOD:

Cindy
Complete as many rounds in 20 minutes as you can of:
5 Pull-ups
10 Push-ups
15 Squats

*Another benchmark workout to check your progress! Be sure to scale appropriately.

Since the above movements are all “bodyweight,” we can scale effectively by decreasing the time, decreasing the reps per round, and even changing the movement itself, but still preserving the stimulus. 

Recommended scaling options:

Pull-ups —> Jumping pull-ups

*Why no band? This workout requires quick transition time. With only 5 pull-ups, the band has the potential to slow you down.

Push-ups —> Elevated box push-ups

*Push-ups from the knees? Yes, but ensure they are done with quality!

Air Squats —> Air Squats
