"Complex Fran" (Time)

For Time: 6 Bar Muscle-ups 9 Chest to Bar Pull-ups 12 Pull-ups 21 Thrusters (115/85) 6 Bar Muscle-ups 9 Chest to Bar Pull-ups 12 Pull-ups 15 Thrusters (115/85) 6 Bar Muscle-ups 9 Chest to Bar Pull-ups 12 Pull-ups 9 Thrusters (115/85) Rx+ 135/95 Resembling the benchmark workout "Fran", we have a heavier barbell paired with a gymnastic complex each round today The gymnastic complex progresses from bar muscle-up, to chest to bar pull-up, to pull-ups The complex does not need to be completed unbroken, but break-up strategy will be important here To complete the complex with the written reps, we recommend having 12+ bar muscle-ups, 21+ chest to bar pull-ups, and 27+ pull-ups unbroken when fresh Choose a heavier load for the barbell, but one you could still cycle for 20+ reps unbroken when fresh We expect this workout to take between 5-12 minutes to complete SUBS Gymnastics Reduce Reps of Each Movement If You Don’t Have Bar Muscle-ups: 21-15-9 of Chest to Bar Pull-ups If You Don’t Have Bar Muscle-ups or Chest to Bar Pull-ups: 21-15-9 of Pull-ups
