But I have a question, one that is interesting to me at least.

Let us say that you take 3 men of identical physical talent, train them each for 2 years. One is trained exclusively for the ultimate physical endurance feat, to walk as far as they can in a 48 hour forced march, while carrying a 90lb pack.

Another is trained exclusively to get time on fran as low as possible.

The third trains exclusively to achieve a set of 20 squats with 500lbs.

Then, each man is tested by attempting all three physical feats.

Which man will be judged as more fit all around in this scenario?
This example is probably irrelevant, but I'd have to say the squatter, hands down. If he only squats and never attempts a pullup (which is silly) he won't finish Fran, so he'd have to practice at least pullups.
