Meg, Matt and Wayne demonstrate the three movements in today's workout.
Today's workout is deeply steeped in CrossFit's history. When it first appeared on the CrossFit main site on December 4, 2005 it was unnamed, and was accompanied by this video featuring Annie Sakamoto, Nicole Carroll and 2-time Olympian Eva Twardokens demonstrating the workout.
People were inspired and awed by the grit and heart that these three diminutive women displayed in the video. The CrossFit community spontaneously named this workout and it stuck. Be sure to check out the video, think you can do toady's workout with as much skill, grit and heart?
These three women remain an important part of CrossFit culture. Annie went on to compete in the CrossFit Games and continues to inspire us all with her incredible athleticism and spirit. The workout Annie is named in her honor. Nicole is the Director of CrossFit Training and Certification. Eva now has her own strength and conditioning business. The workout Eva is named in her honor.
