Good Scores for “Mary” (source)

– Intermediate: 9-12 rounds
– Advanced: 14-16 rounds
– Elite: 16+ rounds
“Mary” is a WOD that requires above-average gymnastics skills: Handstand Push-Ups, Pistols, and Pull-Ups. Scale the skill level of these movements (see: Handstand Push-Up Scaling | Pistol Scaling | Pull-Up Scaling) so you can move smoothly throughout this WO. You’ll lose the intended stimulus of “Mary” if you treat the workout like a skill session.
