Is there a method behind the madness?
Preparing you for the “unknown and the unknowable.” That is what CrossFit prepares you for in life. We are training you to perform well at tasks, even those unfamiliar ones, but how do we get you there? CrossFit’s model of programming allows for wide variance of mode, exercise, metabolic pathways, rest, intensity, set, and reps. The structure of a WOD may focus on a single modality or in combination with others, consisting of: Monostructural metabolic conditioning (many people refer to this as “cardio”), Gymnastics (any bodyweight exercises and body control movements), and lastly, Weightlifting/Powerlifting/and Olympic Lifting. Some days you may find yourself doing a Monostructural metabolic conditioning (aka Met-con) only WOD such as running a 5 K. Another day you may find yourself doing air squats (Gymnastics component) and kettle bell swings (weightlifting component). The possibilities are endless, but there is a purpose each and every time a WOD is programmed and variance from the defined WOD may lead to deficits in your fitness.
Tuesday’s WOD was a strength building day focusing on semi-heavy deadlifts. We saw lots of weights being thrown around and tons of new personal bests. Way to go! So exciting to see people reach limits they never dreamed as possible!
WOD: Deadlifts 3-3-3-3-3
