Metcon (time)
5 rounds, each for time of:

20 pull-ups
30 push-ups
40 sit-ups
50 squats

Rest precisely 3 minutes between each round.

“Barbara,” one of CrossFit’s first six “Girls” WODs, was first posted (without a name) on the CrossFit Main Site as the workout of the day for Sunday, July 13, 2003 (030713). The original version allowed 5 minutes rest between sets. It wasn’t until later that year (September 27 (030927)) that the workout appeared with the name “Barbara” and specified only 3 minutes rest between rounds-the standard used in future appearances of the workout.

A September 2013 CrossFit Journal article stated: “Angie”, “Barbara,” and “Chelsea” are super simple (being comprised entirely of common calisthenics), very tough, dramatically reinforce the pull-up, and yet each presents a different metabolic challenge. “Angie” and “Barbara,” contain pull-ups, push-ups, sit-ups, and squats. “Chelsea” contains pull-ups, push-ups, and squats but no sit-ups. For each of these three workouts the pull-ups clearly present the greatest challenge. And, in the workouts’ aftermath, most athletes expressed surprise at their significant lat, rear delt, and biceps soreness. At CrossFit the pull-up is sacrosanct and everyone needs more. “Angie,” “Barbara,” and “Chelsea” support these values and aims.”
