It’s called Cindy.  It’s 20 minutes, as many rounds as possible:

5 pull-ups

10 push ups

15 air squats

i posted my personal best yesterday of 26 rounds plus 5 pull-ups.  My previous best was 23.

What are air squats?

I haven't done Cindy but I have done The Murph. Our gym does it every Memorial Day (although sadly, we may to postpone it this year). It is similar to Cindy with a Mile run at the beginning and end.

1 Mile Run

100 Pull Ups

200 Push Ups

300 Air Squats

1 Mile Run.

I think my best time was around 44 minutes. @Typhoon92, 26 rounds of Pull-ups (130 total) is pretty damn impressive. Do you do kipping pull-ups or strict?

My other favorite Crossfit workout is Fran. It is alternating Thrusters and Pullups in a 21/15/9 rep sequence. It's a great combination of pushing and pulling exercises and although it's not very long time wise, I am drenched in sweat by the end.

I like Fran as well.  I do strict pull-ups because it’s only 5 at a time.  Murph is brutal, I’m good at sprinting, not distance.  I usually skip the 2 times a year we do Murph.

Yes, I'm not particularly quick on the exercises (particularly pull ups - I take forever to get to 100) but 1 mile runs are where I make up a bit of time. 

BTW, I'm going to update my post above for vanity reasons. I actually checked my history on Wodify and my last two Murph's have been around 39 minutes -  not 44. I think the runs totaled about 17 minutes of that, so that essentially means it took me 22 minutes to do 20 rounds of Cindy. So I am still pretty impressed that you were able to get 26 rounds in 20 minutes.

Cindy is my bitch.... I weigh next to nothing and have the upper body strength. Today’s wod involved rounds of Cindy as well and I crushed it.

This was today’s wod... did it in 12:30
