The History: (courtesy CrossFit.com)
The first Painstorm was a gathering of some
of the UK Crossfitters. Given that some of them traveled up 6 hours (by bus) for
the meeting, no one felt like doing Fran and calling it a day. So the first
Painstorm was something like warm up one round of Helen, followed by a typical
CF WOD, followed by the Secret Service Snatch test, and of course partying
afterwards.

The Painstorm soon evolved into a monthly competition
between CrossFit
London
(represented by Kempie and Karl Steadman), CrossFit Central Scotland
(represented by Davie and his crew) some displaced US military (Gordon Limb and
some marine flyers in London, Brian White and his group called Team Fallujah)
and the group from Brand
X
. Dan Colson from CrossFit
Rockford
has "happily" joined in now as well.

Karl, Davie, Jeff, and Dan take turns creating the Painstorms. They tend to be
long efforts, in keeping with the original tradition. Weights and reps are
scaled of course, so everyone can join in.

Today’s WOD is PainStorm XXX

  1. Wow Katie!
    …tomorrow I’m going to wear a belt, just in case there is a modeling shoot of me of me hibernating after such an event.

  2. Translation: I can’t believe how hard that was. It looks like I was knocked out and a bear started to take my pants off.
