Benchmark Fridays!

Beginning this Friday (6/1) we will be starting our Benchmark Fridays! This will happen all through the month of June, please plan your recovery days accordingly. Be prepared to be placed into heats on Fridays, as we are expecting large turnouts.

Why are we doing this?

Well for starters, if you have never completed a Benchmark WOD this will be a great opprotunity. You'll be able to record your results down to use at a later date to assess your progress, just like a fitness evaluation or assessment.

If you have completed the Benchmark WOD we program you should come in ready to beat your old time/score. This will be an assessment of how much you have improved since the last time you completed the Benchmark WOD. Remember, if you scaled the WOD last time but complete the WOD as prescribed, or closer to prescription, then your time/score may not improve.

Read this piece from the CrossFit Journal about a few of the CrossFit Benchmark WODs. It offers the best explaination on why we do these WODs: "First, these workouts, being exemplars of the CrossFit ideal, give us opportunity to lay bare some of the possibly unseen considerations and details we weigh in our programming design. Second, these six workouts introduce a series of workouts that will serve to measure and benchmark your performance and improvements through repeated, irregular, appearances in the “Workout of the Day”. The workouts intended as benchmarks will be readily distinguished from other Workouts of the Day by their being given, in each instance, a female name."

Be sure to checkout all the Benchmark WODs on CrossFit.com
