According to CrossFit Founder Gary Glassman he named the benchmark workouts after girls in similar way that storms are named after girls by the Natinoal Weather Service. He felt that because these workouts are so physcially demanding they leave you feeling as though a storm hit you.
Benchark workouts are used as a gauge for individual fitness levels across our CrossFit Hardcore community, and even across the global CrossFit community. They are a way to set one overall standard for an infiinte number of athletes across the globe. These girls will test you, both mentally and physically, against the best that CrossFit has to offer.
At CrossFit Hardcore we mix benchmark workouts into our daily WOD class schedule. So you wont know exactly when you will meet any one of CrossFit’s ‘Girls’. For this reason you should always be on top of your game so when you do meet up you can make a good impression.
So you finally met one of CrossFits ‘Girls’ and took her out for an AMRAP. You guys hit it off so well that in her eyes you rank #1. You will now be entered onto our CFHC Leaderboard so the entire CrossFit Hardcore Community will know that you are her #1.
You have been her #1 for awhile now but there is always competition for her heart. If your score is good enough to compete against the best athletes at CrossFit Hardcore you may beant to see how you stack up against competiion elsewhere. This will surely test your devotion to one another when competitors from across the state or nation try to take your #1 rank from your girl.
