To most observers, the The Lab @ CrossFit Lake Hefner doesn't have much in common with a chemistry lab. However, if you take into account the physical and chemical transformations that occur inside the body during a vigorous CrossFit workout, the reasoning behind the name becomes clearer. When athletes at the 6,000 square foot gym perform the Workout of the Day's 5–8 functional movements—which might include dead lifts, squats, or box jumps—their muscles produce lactic acid. Meanwhile, strained muscle fibers multiply by splitting, which causes the soreness often felt the next day and results in increased muscle size and density. These two things—lactic acid and muscle-fiber splitting—are the foundation of The Lab's success. Better still, they don't even require any particular load or duration, which is why the workout is scalable to exercisers of any age, experience, or fitness level.
