Benchmarks!

Diane. A classic CrossFit benchmark WOD. We love benchmarks because we can use it as a test to track improvement. It’s not a complete test by any means, and one workout doesn’t tell the whole story. But it does give us a way to assess where things are at, especially with the deadlift and HSPU with Diane. As we promised, there are several benchmark WODs we’ll be repeating every 3 months throughout the year. Today is one of those days. 
If you’ve only done this workout a few times, come in and get after it and beat that last time. If you’re a veteran at Diane and have many scores under your belt, be sure to think about the strategies you’ve used in the past and think about how they worked. When you’ve been at it a while and your times are getting under the 4 of 5 minute mark, “go faster” may not work anymore. Consider how you break your reps and try something new. Of course you could also go unbroken!
