Benchmark Angie

Gabe and I had a date at NWCF (Northwest Crossfit)
this past Friday night with a benchmark workout.

Angie:
- 100 Pull-ups
- 100 Push-ups
- 100 Sit-ups
100 Squats

A prescribed workout consisted of completing all reps for each movement and then transition to the next exercise as fast as possible:  Start with kipping pull-ups, then transition to push-ups chest to ground, then sit-ups with shoulders flat on the ground then touch your heels, and finish with squats below parallel.  We had the option to modify the workout by breaking up the reps however we wanted (4 rounds at 25 reps each or 10 rounds at 10 reps each, etc)

This was my first time completing Angie .... and I am SO proud to say I did it prescribed.  It was tough, and the 100 pull-ups took me a good 12 minutes (arg), BUT I completed it sub 25 minutes!  AND couldn't be more thrilled for it to be over.
