With a continuously running clock, squat for 60 seconds. Subtract the number of squats completed from 60, and do that many pull-ups in minute two. In minute three, squat again, subtracting the number completed from 60. Do that number of push-ups in minute four. Minute five is squatting again, and minute six pull-ups.

The pattern is squats, pull-ups, squats, push-ups, squats, pull-ups, etc. The goal is to stay within the workout’s formula for as long as possible.

Don’t do more than 60 squats in any round.

In any case, stay moving for 12 minutes.

  1. 1) 55 squats / 5 pull-ups
    2) 47 squats / 13 push-ups
    3) 40 squats / 20 pull-ups
    4) 32 squats / 25 push-ups (3 short)
    5) 32 squats / 15 pull-ups (13 short)
    6) 30 squats / 21 push-ups (9 short)

    Totals: 236 squats / 40 pull-ups / 59 push-ups
    in 12 minutes

  2. 12 minutes short & sweet (I mean sweat) and as far as short goes, I have witnesses to my target which was definitely low enough on the squats. I think my highest total was 52 for the 2 min and 32 was final. Shoulda had a scratch sheet to keep track. It was great.

    • I think I may have gotten to 52 squats on the first round and so my highest total may have been closer to 59 (squats + pull ups w/red and tiny)

    • haha! very funny squat target!

  3. 1) 40 squats / 13 pull-ups
    2) 25 squats / 20 push-ups
    3) 24 squats / 10 pull-ups
    4) 25 squats / 18 push-ups
    5) 23 squats / 11 pull-ups
    6) 21 squats / 16 push-ups

    246 Total reps (158 squats, 34 pullups, 54 pushups

    pullups: red+tiny
    pushups: I started each round in plank (3 or 4 pushups) and then moved to my knees rather than waiting for muscles to recover.

    This was sort of like Tabata minus the rest intervals. A good workout for someone like me. It wasn’t clear how you were suppose to “score” this workout, but I think jotting down reps is important so that if I do it again I can see if I am able to complete more work in the same timeframe.

    Ok, here’s hoping the next two days involves some moves we haven’t done in a while. I thought the last cycle was a good one. As much as I hated the broad jumps, it was good for me to work on something different; Same with the lunges and even crawing on the floor and all that handstand work. That was a good cycle. I hope HQ keeps mixing it up and not just serving up pullups, squats, pushups, and situps in various combinations. I’m not complaining; I’m just saying…

  4. Pretty sure these are correct…
    1. 48/12 pull
    2. 46/14 push
    3. 43/17pull
    4. 43/17 push
    5. 42/18 pull (3 short)
    6. 38/22 push

    297 total reps

    Not quite chest to floor on pushups but first time doing them in a wod since Cindy so that’s good.

  5. So I don’t think I remember or recorded how many squats I did on each round…whoops. I will try to estimate.

    50/10 pull ups
    48/12 push ups
    45/15 pull ups
    43/12 push ups (didn’t finish within the minute)
    44/16 pull ups
    41/10 push ups (didn’t finish all push ups within the minute.)

  6. 12 min

    60 squats
    55 squats/5 push-ups
    50 squats/10 pull-ups
    42 squats/18 push-ups
    42 squats/18 pull-ups
    30 squats/22 push-ups (8 short of 60 reps in 2 min)

    Totals: 279 squats/28 pull-ups/45 push-ups

  7. Thought this would be an easy welcome back after two weeks away, but nooooo… much harder than it looked.

    60/0 pullups
    60/0 pushups
    60/0 pullups
    60/0 pushups
    48/12 pullups
    38/17 pushups

  8. 16 min
