Since CrossFit is a strength conditioning program, there are a number of workouts you may perform to enhance your strength. What follows is a handful of simple workouts that are renowned in the world of CrossFit as the Nasty Girls Workout that will help you achieve your fitness goals.
Below is presented a synopsis of what exactly the Nasty Girls Workout is and a short history of the people who came to be known as the “Nasty Girls.”
Nasty Girls Workout
“Nasty Girls” is nothing but a certain taste considered by CrossFit that includes a number of CrossFit WODS. CrossFit employs standard WODs as measurements and tests to observe how much you’ve advanced in the particular game. If there is improvement in your benchmarks then you are building up athletically and at the same time getting more fit.
On December 4, 2005, which was a Sunday, “Nasty Girls” was introduced by the CrossFit team as its personal, unconnected yardstick drill, and Nicole, Eva, and Annie were honored as “The Original Nasty Girls.” These girls from CrossFit are in possession of WODs that are named after them.
The “Nasty Girl” WOD consists of the following drills that should be practiced for 3 rounds:
- Muscle-ups – 7
- Air Squats – 50
- Hang power cleans (135 or 95 lbs) – 10

A Short History of the Nasty Girls
In the present day, the director of Training and Certification Department of CrossFit is Nicole Carroll. She had been an assistant to Dave Castro and thus reached the current position today as the Games WODs’ programmer.
Eva T’s story was a bit different than the rest. She had been a double Olympic Athlete compelled to withdraw owing to injuries that were career destroying. After that she happened to come across Greg Glassman during a spin class. She soon became a special client and eventually turned out to be a “Nasty Girl.”
Finally, let’s talk about Annie, who was the exemplary and original “Nasty Girl.” Annie happened to be the pint-size lady who constantly impressed others with her feats of endurance and strength. The CrossFit workout “Annie” was named after her.
This includes 50-40-30-20-10 rep rounds of the following:
These are in short some of the top CrossFit “Nasty Girls” workouts that you may perform alone or with your gym mates or family or friends who are into CrossFit. We hope that these inspiring women of CrossFit will challenge you to bigger and better things in the future.
