This Friday’s workout has something for everyone. Rowing and sort-of-but-not-too-heavy thrusters for the big guys, handstand push-ups and L pull-ups for the little guys. CrossFit demands and develops well-rounded fitness. Twins is a great test of an athlete’s well-roundedness. It’s like two workouts in one. Try it, and tell us which one’s the evil one.
2 Rounds of Each Couplet For Time:
20 Handstand Push-ups
20 Thrusters (115#/80#)
20 L Pull-ups
