With a continuously running clock do one pull-up the first minute, two pull-ups the second minute, three pull-ups the third minute… continuing as long as you are able.

Use as many sets each minute as needed.

Post number of minutes completed to comments.

    *#$%! Work! I’ll be missing today too. This whole week has been a bust, but at least I survived the company layoffs. I’ll be back and paying for it next week……. sweat some for me…..

  2. Russell says:

    Did this one yesterday – 20 minutes completed. Pussed out and didn’t even try for any reps during minute 21. Stomach felt kind of upset yesterday and felt it after kipping through a total of 205 pull-ups.

    A few hours earlier – 3×3 Back squat at 305 ( failed on last rep of last set ), 3×3 Bench at 185 , probably too light and should have gone up to around 200.

  3. Jakub Sikorski says:

    13 minutes + 13 reps
    I struggled with this workout. I couldn’t get good rhythm so my arms were forced to do the majority of work. That only worked for few rounds and then it got ugly very fast.

    12 minutes and 7 reps the new bars really grip your hands but I’m sure they’ll be slicked up in no time.

  5. Larry Lowe says:

    16 rounds +10 reps

  6. Will Blankenship says:

    Quit after 12 rnds. Hands are TOE UP!

    I guess I could have worked through the pain, but I’d like to retain the ability to palm a beer bottle. Walking around with meat hanging from my paws isn’t appealing to my girlfriend either 😀

    “Volkswagon”
    21, 15, 9
    BW bench
    PU’s (55 total)
    4:46

    then “death by PU’s”
    round 1-10 is 55 PU’s so I started at round 11
    19 rounds. Didn’t even attempt the 20 round due to ripping hands. Would have made it to 15 or so……but “would have” means nothing in CF land.

  10. Justin says:

    225-255-265-275-295(x)-295(x)-295(x)
    I was happy that my back held up to the higher weight and sad that I missed 295.

  18. Katie says:

    11 rounds + 4

    Sad to say new bike grip did not help 🙁 Ripped up hands.

    Sorry about your hands Clint! It looks like someone took a razor blade to them.

    15 even ripped solid accross bot hands. Russell has a great hand shot. Definitely won’t grabbed another bar for a week.

  21. J.D. says:

    15 rounds + 8.

    Even with taped hands that bar is MURDER on your hands! Taped ripped off around round 12 or 13. Some small blisters, but nothing like Clint’s rips— those were the worst I’ve seen! Props to Clint for pushing through the pain. I took a photo of his hands using his iphone. Really gnarly. Definitely post-worthy!

  22. A.S. Britt says:

    **Attention**
    If you hadn’t noticed there were a number of posts missing from the Archive. That is fixed and you should be able to view all blog entry posts back to the migration of the new website in late March.

    Oh, I see… the day behind thing again. Ok.

    Did this workout Thursday on a playground- 9 rounds + 8

  27. Mandy says:

    Fri: 100 box jumps on a 20″ bench on a playground – 5:13

    Last time I did this I did the 24″ box in 7:24- my third xfit workout last October.

    Will wait a week and then do it on the 24″ box to see if my time has really improved that much!!
