Making Monkeys

imageEight monkeys were put in a room. In the middle of the room is a ladder leading to a bunch of bananas hanging from a hook on the ceiling. Each time a monkey tries to climb the ladder, all the monkeys are sprayed with ice water, which makes them miserable. Very soon, whenever a monkey attempts to climb the ladder, all of the other monkeys, not wanting to be sprayed, set upon him and beat him up. Soon, none of the eight monkeys ever attempts to climb the ladder. One of the original monkeys is then removed, and a new monkey is put in the room. Seeing the bananas and the ladder he wonders why none of the other monkeys are doing the obvious but, undaunted, he immediately begins to climb the ladder. All the other monkeys fall upon him and beat him silly. He has no idea why. However, he no longer attempts to climb the ladder. A second original monkey is removed and replaced. The newcomer again attempts to climb the ladder but all the other monkeys again beat him silly. This includes the previous new monkey, who, grateful that he's not on the receiving end this time, participates in the beating because all the other monkeys are doing it. However, he has no idea why he's attacking the new monkey. One by one, all the original monkeys are replaced. Eight new monkeys are now in the room. None of them have ever been sprayed by ice water. None of them attempt to climb the ladder. All of them will enthusiastically beat up any new monkey who tries, without having any idea why.

I think every one of our Buddy Lee (Thanks by the way buddy) Jump ropes are broken and we can't seem to source any more....so use what we have and share smile Tech: Walk on Hands. See how far you can go (10 ft lines of chalk) WOD: Super gym 30 Muscleups (scale as necessary, 3 pullups, 3 dips = one mu or use various progressions) 30 Handstand pushups (1 abmat = 3:1, or 50/25 seated dumbell shoulder press = 5:1 or scale as necessary) You can go back and forth between MU and HSPU. This workout is the boss of body weight movements. If you can't do it scale and get stronger and lighter over the next year. Patty smile
