The WOD, originally the "OPT Repeatability Test" was named for its creator, OPT (now OPEX Fitness), of Scottsdale, Arizona. OPT "evolved through the years from a personal training and sports performance facility to a multi-national educational and coaching program."

"Simply the hardest workout I have ever done, and brilliant in its design and purpose. The goal is to test your fitness level by testing your ability to recover. After going all out on round one, you rest twelve minutes, do it again, and then again in another twelve. How much fall off you experience in your second and third round time is suggestive of your body’s ability to recover, regenerate ATP, disburse lactic acid, and return your body’s systems to a near normal state. And in the meantime, every single rep, without fail, sucks beyond all reasonable description. When you hop on the rower for the final 250m at the end of round three, you are quite sure you’re riding a sled directly into Satan’s maw." - Patrick McCarty, BreakingMuscle.com
