Today’s WOD is a multiple movement MetCon for 1 Round (A chipper wod). These are usually longer in duration and I like to program these sparingly as these styles of WODs will add a lot of volume to your training week. While these are challenging and dare I say fun, you must be careful with chasing the “fatigue dragon.”
Sometimes we CrossFitters can get stuck in the mindset that if we are still standing we didn’t get a training effect. Well, that is not the case. We do need to push ourselves but we must always look for the “effective minimum dose.”
Every time you train you should be shooting for a goal aside from “getting really tired and sore.”
It might be;
“move as much weight on the deadlift as possible”
“get my heart rate to 90% maximum heart rate and hold it for X minutes” etc.
Think of it this way. Water boils at a certain temperature. You can’t extra boil water. Make sure you don’t always boil yourself until you are nothing but steam (also make sure you get your water to boiling temperature too).WOD (work out of the day) 100 Double-Unders 50 Pull-Ups 400 meter run or 500 meter row 80 Ground to Overhead 45/25 with plate 40 Hand-Release Push-Ups 400 meter run or 500 meter row 60 Kettlebell Swings 53/36 30 Mountain Climbers 400 meter run or 500 meter row The Holiday Sweater Challenge!]]>
