Why does Coach post Mary/Cindy together?

I asked this on the main comments page but thought I might get more info if I post it here as well. Why are Mary/Cindy posted together? I'd love to do both, that is an insane work load. Why not post them each individually? Is it just because many say they can't even do Mary due to the 'advanced' movements,' ie. HSPUs and Pistols, so coach gives them an option?

Reagan:

I think you are correct. Pistols and HSPU are hard, both technically and mentally. Postin "Mary" solo is likely to result in massive subs and skipping.

Also because they are similar workouts. Both have a 20 minute time domain, with a push, a pull, and a squat. They both leave you with a similar feeling after you finish.

I believe they have come up separately a few times in the past.
