Background: The “Painstorm” WODs are a series of workouts that became popular after they were shared in the CrossFit Forum, typically with Credit to Brand X CrossFit and CrossFit Central Scotland in the early 2000’s. Each workout in the series, identified by the roman numeral in its name, has since spread throughout the functional fitness community. As a whole, the collection became very popular.

This specific workout was shared with WODwell by a friend who had a connection to one of the gyms who originated it.
