Recently we’ve been programmed a few workouts that either take a long time or require you to perform difficult tasks efficiently without breaking sets. These workouts have been a constant reminder to focus on how we approach each obstacle put in front of us. Having a plan can mean the difference between success and failure in any situation. So it’s a good idea to plan out how you’re going to tackle each WOD.
A common misconception about Crossfit is that every workout needs to be performed at full throttle. This isn’t necessarily true although it’s easy to understand why there is some confusion here. Every Crossfit workout is undoubtably intense in the traditional sense of the word. However there are differences in the type of exertion when we are pressed with in different workouts.
Sometimes intentionally breaking up your sets or taking breaks in between movements are necessary in order to achieve good times and scores. This mostly applies to chipper workouts and high repetition workouts as opposed to short sprints such as “Fran”. It makes sense when comparing these types of workouts to achieving peak scores in running. For best times you want to SPRINT a 400m run and RUN a 5 mile run. This doesn’t mean that one is more difficult than the other but the type of exertion and difficulty you feel is much different.
Make sure you plan out how you’re going to pace each workout. Doing so will not only improve your times but it’ll make you more aware of how your body performs.
