WOD Summary

Please look at Wodify for the specific daily WOD announcements. They are available a week in advance. We’ll post next day’s WOD here the day before.

This month we will be focusing on correcting imbalances. We will accomplish this by working predominantly with dumbbells and kettlebells versus barbells. We will also focus on body-weight movements using only one limb/side at a time. The reason for all this is that over time we all tend to favor one side over another. Our goal is to spend a month correcting this and bringing the body into balance, which is better for our spine, posture and performance. It is our goal that this will set us up for better progress in the coming months.

This month is going to look a little different. We have a primary focus on interval training this month. Interval training is a workout which alternates between work and rest. Why is interval training important? It pushes you to move with high intensity for a short to medium length of time, and then allows you to quickly recover before you repeat for several times. This method is highly effective in getting your VO2 max up (basically how fast you can recover) and it’s also training your body to move faster and pace better. Intensity is the “magic pill” of CrossFit. That is what burns fat and changes your body!

Doing a bunch of 30-40 minute AMRAPs non-stop at a slow pace will actually teach your body to move slow and never trains intensity. This is when you start to get injured and don’t see changes in your body. Because there’s no intensity! You can’t do that amount of volume every single day and think you can recover from it.

The workouts will be drastically different day to day per the CrossFit methodology. Simply be aware that the interval training is being used more than normal for a purpose. Focus on moving well and moving with intensity and I guarantee you will feel better overall and make faster gains!

Let’s kick the Holidays in the butt!

It is our hope you enjoy this week’s programming of functional movements that are constantly varied and meant to be done at high intensity. Keep in mind that quality of movement and range of motion come before going heavier and faster. Train smart!
