Mary is a time priority workout, often programmed simultaneously with Cindy. In these cases the athlete is generally allowed to choose the girl they’d rather take on. Cindy is not the easy way out, she’s relentless, there’s no reason to stop moving, but she is the devil you know. We want you to practice the more technical, less familiar movements associated with Mary, so Wednesday she’s programed as a task priority workout. The floor will likely be littered with abmats, dumbbells, med balls, boxes, and bands, as many of you may need to scale, and that’s great. We want you developing the skills so that next time you’ve got a choice between push-ups and handstand push-ups, or air squats and pistols, you can confidently choose the most challenging movement that best allows you to demonstrate your fitness.
