Benchmark Workouts – The design and crafting of workouts is CrossFit’s primary concern. Factors like impact, motivation, perception, recovery, and timing combine with decades of experience seasoned by luck and intuition to create our daily fare, the “workout of the day”.
Though the process by which we engineer our workouts is largely rational, the finished product is often seemingly infused with qualities more commonly associated with art then exercise like symmetry, theme, or character. It is this sense that we have in the past referred to “the choreography of exertion” in describing the best of workout design.
When everything goes right the finished product comes alive in a blend of elegance, simplicity, form, and impact. – Written by Greg Glassman – CrossFit Journal Issue 13 September 2003
