The Wreckoning

Well, I needed a suitably intimidating title, but truth be told, the goal is never to "wreck" anybody, or even put them in harm's way... the objective is simply to prepare you. To prepare your body for the challenges ahead (in crossfit or outside of it) and probably more importantly to prepare your mind so that future workouts, life situations, or physical stressors are not nearly as daunting.

That's what I think the true power of CrossFit training is... it essentially breaks down our conception of what is possible for us to accomplish. I know that sounds a bit over the top, but I've seen it more times than I can count. I've seen people change through training hard, and always in a good way - towards greater confidence, a more outgoing and engaging attitude, or even just exuding inner strength.

So this workout is a tough one, but you'll get through it, and you'll be stronger for it.

Good luck, have fun
