Basically it’s because you’re working with a muscle group every time through the workout. You have to strength those muscles harder, thereby developing more muscle mass and working on balance as well as endurance.
In CrossFit there are no days off – you work at a high intensity for entire rounds of a series of exercises. And if you miss a rep, or a movement pattern, or the repetition is incorrectly performed – you start over from the beginning again. Lots of times during these workouts it can be grueling – but really fun. Like most things though-it requires good communication and communication skills! If your partner keeps telling you they want to stop because they can’t lift their knee anymore- then they probably SHOULD STOP!! I think that may be why my husband yells at me when he knows I am getting tired early in any CrossFit workout:) “no legs? NO goal- we still GO FOR IT!!!” So funny and so true..lol!
