Finals Week Struggles, According to CrossFitters

May is finally here. Temperatures are rising and the flowers are blooming. But for college students across the country, there is still one dark, looming cloud—finals.

Tensions are high and sleep is minimal. Many hit every point on the emotional spectrum during this busy week, just hoping that the work they’ve done all semester paired with a little bit of cramming (who are we kidding—a lot of cramming) will help them pass their finals.

CrossFit athletes know far too well what this struggle is like. The quest to become an elite CrossFitter requires balancing a whole lot of hard work, all in anticipation of one big, culminating test each summer: the Reebok CrossFit Games.

So it only seems natural to depict finals week, according to CrossFitters…
