Friday, August 30

We are doing the class CrossFit benchmark Nasty Girls today. We use these benchmark workouts to measure our progress over time. So record your time and make sure you look back at your previous time. Did you go faster, did you use more weight, did you do pull ups or muscle ups? All of these things are ways of measuring progress so it’s not just about the time on the clock.

We test lots of CrossFit benchmark workouts - Fran, Diane, Annie, Nicole and more. So what’s up with all the girl names?

Morning Chalk Up did a little research into why these workouts are named after girls and who these girls are. Check out the article here for more info on the workouts and the people.

And check out the original Nasty Girls video below featuring Annie, Nicole and Eva T!
