1. Conditioning
“Strict Nicole”
AMRAP 20:
400 Meter Run
Max Strict Pull-ups

The CrossFit Benchmark workout “Nicole” is traditionally written as Max Kipping Pull-ups. Today, however, we will be looking to accumulate as many quality strict pull-ups as possible in the 20 minute window. When the clock runs out, the score is total strict pull-ups. This is an awesome opportunity for athletes to hold themselves to a strict movement standard and build some strength. In order the get the right stimulus, we are looking for athletes to complete at least 5-6 repetitions each attempt on the pull-up bar. Choosing a variation that allows for this many reps will get athletes the most bang for their buck. Once athletes drop from the pull-up bar or are unable to complete any more reps that meet the standard, they will complete a 400 meter run. The preferred sub for running today is a bike, as the row may negatively affect the pull-ups, although either will work.
