The Female WODs of CrossFit introduce a series of workouts that will serve to measure and benchmark your performance and improvements through repeated, irregular, appearances. Why are the workouts named after Girls? Coach Glassman, the founder of CrossFit explained it best. I want to explain the workout once and then give it a name. I thought that anything that left you flat on your back, looking up at the sky asking what just happened to me? deserved a females name."
