+1 I wouldn't call it the hardest in the CF arsenal but it is a killer WOD. By round five your like "@uck I have five more rounds of this sh** ".


Like Mark said that women named is Eva is one of the toughest.

Re: Hardest metcon workouts?

Of the Benchmarks, "Eva" for sure. At least for me. The KB swings arent bad but the runs in between going into the KB swings are a killer on the lungs. Also, this little gem: 10(thrusters @ 135), 50(doubleunders), 8(thrusters), 40(DU's), 6(thrusters), 30(DU's), 4(Thrusters), 20(DU's). Lovely and sick.

Re: Hardest metcon workouts?

Eva is certainly one of the hairiest WOD's......although, every WOD can be excruciating.....its hard as you're willing to push.

Re: Hardest metcon workouts?

I tried the final qualifier workout from the Northeast Regional Qualifier back in May:

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps of
power clean 155#
chest to bar pullups
KB swing 1.5 pd


It might be the hardest workout I've ever done.
