We love when our athletes find interesting things about CrossFit online. Here is an article that Mike Milazzo found about the benefits of "Cindy".
"CrossFit might be best known for heavy barbells and iron sleds pushed by six people at a time. One popular Workout of the Day (WOD) is much simpler—but you can still burn up to 14 calories per minute doing it, finds a new study in the American College of Sports Medicine.
When researchers put well-trained, experienced CrossFitters through Cindy, they found that participants hit an average heart rate of 170 beats per minute. That's the sign of a very intense cardiovascular workout as it meant they were, on average, exercising at 88 percent of their maximum heart rate for the full workout. "
