Why did Monday's WOD "feel" so much worse than it looked on paper?  Welp, Monday's WOD involved what we like to call "movement interference" -- the concept that multiple movements which comprise the workout have redundant patterns, therefore the accumulated fatigue never quite clears your system the same way it would in a more complimentary couplet or triplet where the movements are opposing patterns.  Tuesday's WOD is just that -- a complimentary couplet(ish... sorta) which is a variation on quite possibly the most famous couplet of them all in CrossFit... Fran.

The "Complex Fran" WOD comes to us courtesy of the CrossFit.com main site and was the final event in the Masters 35-39 and Teen 16-17 divisions at the CrossFit Games this past weekend.  To watch those fire-breathers do this workout check out the archived footage of the event on the CrossFit Games website here (click on the "Age Groups" tab > EVENTS: CF > then select the division & heat you want to watch by clicking the colored circles below the video feed). CrossFit's Youtube channel should also have the archive up in a few days or so if you want to watch a later date.  

Enjoy this twisted twist on Fran!
