Although named after a beautiful flower, this workout wasn’t so pretty! Our #workoutoftheweek was a test of strategy and knowing your strengths. Breaking it into even, simple rep schemes seemed like a good idea at first, but many of us came to find that those “nice” numbers for one movement didn’t make for a consistent ...

Gymnastics, light weights, heavy weights, and the heaviest of breathing! These workouts separately were both excellent tests in their own way, but together they represented what CrossFit preaches about what fitness really is. “The fitness that CrossFit advocates and develops is deliberately broad, general, and inclusive.

Get upside down, they said. Who knew wall walks could be so tiring? This tested skill, muscular endurance, and accuracy with a standard that punished instability.
