Week of 8/26-8/31

Category : Weekly Blog

Howdy folks!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week, both in and out of CrossFit. For everyone who visited and completed their first WOD…congrats! For everyone else who has consistently showed up day in and out…keep up the good work!

Some of you have commented recently that the WODs have become increasingly more difficult. Don’t worry, it’s not just you. The WOD’s have become more difficult. On purpose. There’s a reason that the introductory WODs that we did the first few weeks versus the WODs we’re doing now are different. The entity of CrossFit strives to improve fitness, or in their words, to “increase work capacity over broad time and modal domains.” Briefly this says that no matter the workout, your times should continue to improve as long as you consistently participate in CrossFit. If the workouts stayed in the fashion of 10 WB, 10 Burpees, 10 Pullups for three rounds, your fitness would initially improve and then plateau. By varying the workouts and increasingly the difficultly by lengthening the time and changing the movements (HSPU vs Pushups, Pullups vs Ring Rows, Overhead Squats vs Back Squats), your fitness will improve sans plateaus. This is what CrossFit calls “optimal fitness”.

This weekend is Labor Day! Woo-Hoo! Classes will still run throughout the week as planned. However, the Saturday (8/31) and Monday classes (9/2) will be canceled due to the holiday.

As always, feel free to email me with any questions.
