10 CrossFit Chipper WODs to Build Powerful Mental Toughness for Athletes

Rich Froning: "It doesn't have to be pretty to be effective..."

CrossFit Chipper WODs are a great format to enhance mental toughness for athletes. They require you to tackle the WOD head on and grind your way through. A handy mental characteristic that can help you out in life when things get tough as well. 

The name Chipper describes a workout that combines a lot of different movements at high volume. You complete all reps assigned for each exercise before moving on to the next. Unlike the circuits seen in a lot of CrossFit workouts, a Chipper is performed only once.
