  • Saturday Training CrossFit style

    Just a change of name to the "City to Surf " Thread seeing as the race is over.

    Anyway hope you guys enjoyed your rest and Brekky last weekend because training is back on

    So South Perth foreshore under the Freeway bridge at mill point 10am this Sat 12th Sep. All welcome.

    Training from now on will be a combination of Crossfit and Crossfit Endurance so we wont be running every week. But I'm sure we can run the Bridges now and again just for old times sake !

    This week will be an introduction to some new exercises and equipment.

    See you guys on Sat.

        A good explanation why your sore ! to quote

        CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program. We were talking about intensity today. Intensity is where we get the best adaption. Intensity is what sets us apart from other strength and conditioning programs. Intensity can be measured by our power output. Power is defined as force times distance divided by time and is written, P = F X D/ T. You are the engine that provides the power.
        Long slow workouts have a low power output. They are not intense. Short, furiously paced workouts have a high power output.
        Guess what, when you stomp on the gas pedal and tell your body to produce more power it is uncomfortable, painful even. How much of that discomfort you can handle will be directly related to how much intensity you can bring to the workout.
        Now its fine to occasionally move through one of the named WODs slowly at the required weight. But the CrossFit Girls are not just about moving the Rx’d weight they are about moving the required weight, over the proscribed range of motion efficiently, effectively, safely, and FAST. That my friends is a CrossFit workout as Rx’d. Diane at 15 minutes has missed the point. Fran at 12 minutes with 95 pounds has missed the point.
        Pursue discomfort.
        Scale the WOD’s so that the pursuit is a sprint, headlong, lungs gasping, heart hammering, muscle quaking, vision blurring. That’s where you will find the Girl as Rx’d.

                            Thanks Brendon that was goooood. Feel the burn!!

                            I'm going to try and get something going with a few others while I'm away to keep the momentum going. Motorvation is the key for me, cos I struggle by myself.
