Why Are So Many Crossfit Benchmark Workouts Named After Women?

> AND WHY DO THEY WORK THIS WAY?

Today I want to start by speaking specifically about why women are doing power workouts. If this is the reason, you should stop. But if this is not the case for you, I’ll explain where it came from and give some history on how they become these benchmarks, but first here’s a quick look at two popular myths regarding “female” sessions in Crossfit today.

1. Women do very different workouts than men: women tend to do fewer reps and more sets than men so their WODs will appear shorter and easier

SOME RARE GENTLEMAN READERS MAY NOT HAVE MURDERED PEOPLE OR TORTURED OTHERS FOR THEIR OWN ADVANTAGE AND SELFISH PURPOSE IN LIFE BUT SOME OF US ARE NOT COMPLETELY NORMAL SO YEAH!, OKAY THAT’S WRONG MLBB ON THE MORE COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS MADE ABOUT WOMEN. THERE ARE SO MANY MORE WORSE THINGS GOING ON WITH THE WAY WE TRAIN NOW…I GUESS ALL THESE REPORTS ABOUT COACHES TELLING WOMEN TO USE THEIR BOOBS FOR FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT ISN’T SOMETHING YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT RIGHT?!!! LIARS! PERKS OF BEING A DOUBLE STANDARD FLYING PIG! SORRY NO HATE SPEECH COMMENT YET (

Why Are My Crossfit Workouts Not Showing In My Training Log On Strava?

Haha, I’ve had that problem too. There was a bug in Strava’s app for quite some time where workouts would not appear in your training log every now and then no matter what you did. It took months to track down whomever at Strava could fix this bug, but it eventually got fixed. This has since been an issue with their server as well, causing the same or similar issues to other users on multiple occasions. On top of that though there are many other factors contributing to why it’s only showing certain workouts here too. Here are some different ways this can occur:

is just a fancy term for strength training. Some people argue that Crossfitters are the only ones who should be allowed to call themselves athletes, because they don’t join gyms for exercise or workout. Instead, they devote their time to lifting heavy objects, sprinting up and down high vertical spaces, and doing dozens of other very weird movements that no Olympic athlete would ever do. (Note: Many Crossfit trainers use “metabolic conditioning workouts” after their regular circuit/kettlebell/free-weight workout sessions. The first half of these workouts can last up to an hour or more.) Are you ready? Ready for what? Here we go! (Don’t hate me yet!) Every human on planet earth has at least one special effect power his/her body can do! For example, here are some neat things I can do…I am basically…a superhuman! These powers make it possible for me to perform amazing feats like bungee jumping off bridges (and getting back up)! This may impress the world but doesn’t always make me popular with my fellow men…If you know what I mean…My stunts seem stupidly dangerous if you think about them too much but then again life itself is dangerous; grabbing onto your closest buddy as he falls from a great height seems kind of dumb really now doesn’t it? So maybe people should focus less on being so cautious these days and have more fun in the
