This is one of my favorite CrossFit to do yearly. I always try to do it during December or January to get grasp on where my CrossFit specific fitness is at going into the Open. It never fails to tell me where I’m at either. Also it is great to use year to year to see how your training is benefiting you long term.
I don’t believe people should always be getting better at certain workouts every year, Especially those with a decent training age.
The longer you’ve been training the more peaks and valleys you will experience. Also the more often you will have to push yourself into “overtraining” to get any measurable adaptations.
One time I performed this workout for 60 minutes straight with my mouth taped and completed 3 full rounds, something I don’t think I’ll ever be able to do again
