This little bundle of joy showed up in the comments section of CrossFit.com in April of 2007.   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. This one will tax you.  Keep the warmup short and get to work to try to beat the time cap.
