Today’s workout is a classic CrossFit triplet.

  We have a monostructural metabolic conditioning movement (running), a high demand weightlifting and throwing movement (wall balls), and an old school gymnastic skill (rope climbing.

)  The Wall ball and rope climbing couplet is functional because each movement contains what the other lacks.

  The wall ball has a squat and a throw, and is terrestrial in nature, whereas the rope climb is pulling and arboreal in nature.  Mixing this with a fast, short run and repeating for rounds is costly, terrible, and extremely beneficial to all 10 of our general physical skills.  Have fun!
