Girls Week – Day 1 . . . Isabel . 30 Snatches 135/95 . . L2 95/65
Today will kick off Day 1 of Girls Week! Yup .. everyday day this week we will be hitting a Benchmark Girls WOD (HERE).
Why the girls names?
“According to the National Weather Service the use of “short, distinctive given names in written as well as spoken communications is quicker and less subject to error” than “more cumbersome” identification methods, so since 1953 storms have been assigned female given names.
This convenience and logic inspired our granting a special group of workouts women’s names, but anything that leaves you flat on your back and incapacitated only to lure you back for more at a later date certainly deserves naming.” (CF Journal – Issue 13, September 2003)
Since 2003 many benchmark girls workouts have been added to the list. The “New Girls”, such as Annie, Nicole, and Eva, were named after some of CrossFit’s top female trainers.
