Aptly named the “Whip-it” by CrossFit coach Andy Petranek, this workout is taken from Petranek’s book Fire your Gym! (co-authored with Roy Wallack). “Whip-it” is a scaled-down version of the CrossFit “Cindy” WOD; it has fewer pullups and pushups and more squats, plus situps.
“It leaves out nothing,” Wallack says. “It hits virtually all the muscles in all parts of the body. It gives you a cardio blast and leaves you heaving. It keeps your momentum going better than Cindy; the slightly lower quantities of the exercises (4 pullups versus 5; 8 pushups versus 10) make must- stop-or-I-will-die interludes less likely. The situps provide a breather to keep momentum going.”
A pullup bar of some sort—either at the gym, at home, or on the monkey bars at a local park.
