Variable pain tolerance?

Variable pain tolerance?

In a study recently done at the University of Oxford with the men’s crew team, researchers found that members of a team that train together can tolerate twice as much pain as when they train on their own (read the article – thanks, Kevin!) Does this help to explain why CrossFit workouts are most effective when done in a group, with a community? Does this correspond to what you’ve found on your own? Do you scores improve, times drop, lifts increase when you CrossFit with a group as opposed to on your own? Post thoughts to comments.
