When CrossFit was first created, Greg Glassman created certain workouts to use as benchmarks to track progress. CrossFit is constantly varied, functional fitness, performed at high intensity. So, we are never supposed to repeat anything. Unless, there is a purpose. Benchmarks allow us to track our progress through different modalities. Some benchmarks are all bodyweight (Cindy). Some benchmarks are all weighted (Linda). These are workouts that we repeat occasionally to make sure we are getting fitter, stronger, faster. CrossFit named many of these workouts after some of the original women firebreathers of CrossFit. Today, we will do Helen.
Helen is a combination of cardio, lifting, and gymnastics. Without anything particularly heavy, this WOD becomes all cardio and will keep you out of breath. A good Helen time is under 10 minutes.
