The workout above is an upper body intensive triplet. It consist of two upper body pressing movements and one upper body pulling movement. To make this workout more well rounded I would include an 18 Cal Row after the burpees each round, so there would not be 3 back to pressing movements.
I don’t think it is optimal to design workouts with back to back movements stressing the same muscle group often because it increases the risk of an overuse injury. I think this especially risky in CrossFit with all the high velocity upper body movements that take place, specifically kipping type gymnastic movements
