Creative CrossFitters create new workouts every day. Blair Morrison continues the search for signature workouts from around the world.

“I could totally do a pull-up on that branch.”

CrossFit changed the way we view the world. Tree branches became pull-up bars, picnic tables turned into plyo boxes and swing sets seemed like great places to hang a set of rings. And that rock over there? You should probably overhead squat it.

Indeed, all the world is a CrossFit gym with the right pair of eyes and a little creativity. This article is the fifth in a series where we’ll publish some of the best workouts from locales around the world, giving residents and travelers a chance to test their fitness outside the box. In this installment, Blair Morrison gives you a chance to throw down on what used to be Schwarzenegger’s turf.

If you have a set of landmarks, natural features or outdoor “equipment” suited for a great WOD, please view the submission guidelines on the last page of this article—then send us your workout!

Looks like the video is no longer on youtube, or at least that link isn't working. Anyone know of a way of accessing that video? I'd like to do this WOD sometime this summer and the vid would help a lot.
