WOD: 12-17-2009

Same as Yesterday: No we are not stupid or lazy. Just the opposite, we expect our athletes to come into the gym with gasoline and matches ready to burn down the workout like a forest fire.  It takes extra to push beyond your percieved limits and that means 2 to 3 days in row is all we expect.  Take Wed or Thurs to rest and rearm and then head back into battle and make it to Sunday.

See everything we do in a workout on “Our WOD”

    Interesting article on CFE:
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7193134?dopt=AbstractPlus

    His conclusion from the experiment is: “These findings demonstrate that simultaneously training for Stength and Endurance will result in a reduced capacity to develop strength, but will not affect the magnitude of increase in VO2max.”

    Not sure I agree with that. We as Crossfitters may not gain strength as QUICKLY as someone dedicated to strength training only, but I think we still have the capacity to develop the same level of strength. I also think that people who do strength-training only make their great & quick strength advances at the cost of decreased flexability and, as the experiment pointed out, no increase at all in V02 Max (endurance). Slow & steady is the course to GPP.

    Thoughts ??
