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.

    Junk food farms – Government Subsidization at its finest.

    Not sure how this post should look, after all I had to read the WOD like six times last night to figure out what the hell we were doing today. I guess it could’ve been the 2 Delirium Nocturnums, mmmm…what?! It’s Zone friendly and I needed a 2 CHO block for my 2 block snack.

    16, then finished out the 20 minutes by going down and got 11, 10, 10 before time.
    Total pu’s were 167 + learning the butterfly kip this morning, which definitely needs some work = Angie pr

    13 rounds a+ 13

    Had freaking two seconds left to get the 14th and could not make my arms work!
    This was rough because I did 75 pull-ups yesterday (not a good idea).

  5. Clint says:

    Larry, I actually parked my car once and pushed around the parking lot. You just have to find a parking lot big enough and use the parking lanes for distance measurements. Also had a ruck sack I filled with odd items and would hit the stairs max effort 5 flights for 5 rounds is a but kicker.

  6. Will Blankenship says:

    I quit at round 13. Hands were ripping all to Hell. I find no glory in not being able to wipe my ass. 😀 I’ve got to get on top of shaving and sanding my hands!

    • Katherine Berger says:

      I know taking care of your hands is the best way…but, worst case scenario, consider taping. I used tape today and my hands are sore but not ripped…a nice change.

    • Slade White says:

      Just as long as you aren’t shaving and sanding your ass, Will. 🙂

  7. Slade White says:

    14 rounds plus 12 pullups. Same story here, wasn’t getting the full height ont he last ones and couldn’t finish in time. 15 next time!

  8. Russell says:

    22 + 12

    Hands were still torn up from Nate. Blood started flowing at minute 17. Tape is for girls.

    • Robert S. says:

      I did not relize that I was a “transgendered” individual as of today. Thank you for letting me know, Russell. Damn that tape and it’s ability to cause you to loose your testicals……. Is it less feminine if your hands still ripped with the tape on them?

    • Robert S. says:

      It appears that tape also causes you to forget how to spell.

  9. Robert Montgomery says:

    If you do choose to use tape just be sure that it matches your purse 🙂

  10. Jake Naumcheff says:

    17 + 13
    PR by 1 round

  11. Mandee Miller says:

    11 rds + 9 reps in rd 12
    finished out the 20 minutes with
    rounds of 11,10,9,8,7

  12. tracey says:

    I didnt follow directions on accident… got to 7 plus 6, then did 4 sets of 5. I was trying to get this one done before 9:30 class, so I didnt know about the taper down. Kat, I will be on the look out for colorful tape.LOL

  13. Robert S. says:


  14. z says:

    17 + 10. Hands are hamburger meat but it was worth it.

  15. Katherine Berger says:


    You followed directions perfectly…the workout only called for the first part and the earlier classes tapered back down because they had time and felt like it. Not necessary though. In many cases, if you got to your max (either due to muscle failure or failure of the skin on your hands), you would be unable to continue after your last round. Good job. I will be waiting for the pretty tape (and I won’t be crying because MY hands feel GREAT! 🙂

  16. Robert Montgomery says:

    10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 reps for time of:
    Deadlifts- 150% of BW = 255#s

  17. joe c says:

    15 ROUNDS. might have been able to get sixteen but hands are still all messed up from saturdays wod

  18. Karen says:

    13 + 8. Waited a few rounds while Russell and Kevin kept going… and going… and going. After resting a few rounds, I picked back up doing 5 pullups a round for about 5 or 6 more rounds.

  19. Craig Herr says:

    12 rounds

    Was only going do 10 rounds because elbow still sore but felt good and did 12. Tried to do chest to bar. Arms felt good the hands were getting torn up like everyone elses-did pull ups the day before not smart. Great job to the 7 am class everyone worked very hard.

  20. J.D. says:

    15 + 7. And yes I taped my hands. Masculinity still intact oddly enough.

  21. Jason Terry says:

    12 + 10 (PR) CTB for first 10 rounds and only one tear on hands.

  22. Jason Terry says:

    12 + 10 (PR) CTB for first 10 rounds and only one tear on hands.

  23. Amy Tankesley says:

    13 + 11 rounds and bleeding hands!! I am definitely dreading the shower tonight.

  24. Krista says:

    Scaled 19 + 16
    1 real pull up in 1st minute, 2 real pull ups in the second minute, 2 real pull ups and the rest jumping for next couple of rounds, then dropped to one real pull up each round and the rest jumping for a couple of rounds. Finally had to finish with all jumping pull ups.

  25. Kerri says:

    13 rds +13 reps in the 14th rd with one kpu each round then jpus after that……
    Finally, after 5 months of CF, I got a for real Kipping Pull-up today…woo hoo! Now, next goal…linking them….

  26. dunnbball says:

    17+15 JPU’s plus I did 6 instead of 4 in round 4… a little over-zealous I guess!
    Congrats Kerri on the “for real” pull-up. I aspire to do the same one day! 🙂

    • Kerri says:

      Thanks girls!! I guess it still counts, even though I had to swing my body a couple times to get that chin up there, right? 🙂

  27. Zak says:

    3 x max rep hand stand push-ups with 1 min rest between sets
    12, 9, 7

    Weighted Chin Ups 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1
    115, 120, 125(x), 125(x), 115, 115(x), 105

  28. Charlie says:

    As Rx’ed: 11 + 7; down 9 from PR

  29. Russ says:

    8+5. My kipping is still not perfected – wasting too much energy on the way down and not flowing from 1 pull-up to the next. Also working increase my strength/power at the top of each pullup.

  30. Patrick says:

    Words of wisdom from one of CrossFits biggest detractors. Death of Squatting…dudes a tool.

    20 + 18 PR

    My girlish white tape matched my underwear….and it still did not help. Just put rips in new places. Also tore it all off around round 12…makes grip sucky
