What Are The Women WODs? “The Girls”

So, what are the women WODs? Briefly, these WODs were designed to measure physical improvement. They each combine various physical components and serve as benchmarks for athletes. Ideally, an individual would perform the benchmark WODs every 3 to 6 months to track their overall progress. Fun fact, Camille Leblanc-Bazinet, 2014 CrossFit Games champion, can do Fran in 2:04!

Why are WODs named after women?

Have you ever wondered why some of the most demanding WODs in CrossFit are named after women? Well, the answer to that question is kind of awesome! When this was asked to Gred Glassman, Crossfit Founder, he answered this :

“I thought that anything that left you flat on your back, looking up to the sky, asking, ”what the f*** happened to me?”, deserved a female name.” – Greg Glassman.

On top of that, did you know that the original Women WODs were named after powerful hurricanes and that the latest benchmark WODs were named after important crossfitters. Interesting stuff, right?
