What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is defined as constantly varied, functional movement, performed with intensity. Or, simply put: The workouts are all different, the movements are what your body is naturally meant to do, and you try your best. Any CrossFit workout can be modified to meet the abilities of the athlete. This is the coaches job and it’s how people with varying fitness levels can all train together.

Coaches Notes

Move fast be fast,move slow be slow

I was never really great at math but I always really liked numbers. I like nice logical sequences for most WODs It makes it easier to remember and lessens the amount of breaks people take to look at the board

” I know its the third round but is it still 7 burpees”

This WOD has lower reps sets repeated a few more rounds than typical (9, its like 1 less than 10). This is intended to go fast, go hard and smash walls.

Seven burpees at a time should move pretty fast, if you have to stop in the middle of the set either the building is on fire, you are dying or you should be scaling.

Five deficit hand stand push ups, do not let this slow you down. If you cannot move through these unbroken or at most two sets modify the reps then the movement.

Three Snatches at a moderate to heavy weight. If competing is one of your goals you need to master all barbell movements at this weight. If not then find a weight that is at about 70-80% of a max high standard snatch ( no slop maxes) If you are not at a point that you can move this technically sound adjust the weight or movement to a weight that will challenge you but not slow you down.

There are many reason and ways to scale every work out. The right answer depend on each individual and the situation. Here is a few variations on either side of the continuum.

Scaled down/beginner

7 Rds

6-Burpee (you’re not getting out of them)

5-Push Up

4- DB Snatch 50/35/25

Scaled Up/elite

9 rounds

7- Burpee over Bar

5- HSPU- Parralettes-bars to ears

3- Snatch-185/115
