We've got some brave editors here at Men's Fitness. Not always smart, but certainly brave. I am one of them. So I'll take the credit—or blame—for volunteering to jump in a CrossFit WOD (Workout of the Day) with 2014 CrossFit Games women's champion Camille LeBlanc-Bazinet. At 5'2", 125 pounds, the 25 year-old Canadian-born athlete has earned the title "Fittest Women on Earth" with her incredible strength and gymnastic ability. CBL, who works out twice-a-day, three times a week, earned her first CrossFit title last August at CrossFit Games in Carson, Calif. She did all that while still completing her degree in chemical engineering.
On this day, we met at EVF CrossFit Columbus Circle in New York City, where she assured me that she had no intention of taking it easy on me. "I came to work out," she said knowingly. And I had come just to survive. We both succeeded.
Here's the workout:
20 pistol squats (10 each leg)
10 muscle-ups + dip
*Two minutes rest between rounds.
