14 CrossFit Workouts That You Have To Try At Least Once

CrossFit workouts typically combine olympic lifting and gymnastic movements, sprints, and bodyweight exercises such as push-ups and burpees. The sport is growing rapidly, with people from all walks of life pursuing CrossFit workouts to get fit, healthy and strong!

CrossFit workouts are fun but physically demanding. They require you to be strong at high heart rate whilst still maintaining good form and technique. When you’re feeling fatigued it’s often your technique that will go first but if you want to be a good crossfitter then this is something you’re going to have to work on.

In today’s post we’re going to look at the infamous “Girls” CrossFit workouts. Now, when we say the ‘girls’ this doesn't mean they are CrossFit workouts for women, far from it. It’s just the names that were given to the CrossFit workouts back in the day when they were first programmed.
