In an August 11, 2005 CrossFit forum post addressed to “Dave” (presumably Dave Castro) a member named Ryan Atkins suggested that this workout, “Charlotte,” and four others (“Lola,” “Betty,” “Heather,” and “Pukie Brewster”) be added to the official list of benchmark WODs.
The workouts were adopted by plenty of gyms and athletes but despite his plea, neither “Charlotte” nor any of the other four are technically one of the classic CrossFit “Girls” workouts.
Hold the following poses and stretches for the specified times.
Focus on your breathing and relax.
