We use lots of CrossFit abbreviations that stand for different moves and lifts in our Workout of the Day. Since our workouts are constantly varied, it could take awhile to get all the shortened CrossFit terms memorized, so we’ve created a glossary here for you to reference if you have any questions about what the WOD contains.
