What Does a CrossFit Workout Look Like?
All workouts start with a prescribed weight/progression and are adjustable to your skill-level. Every day is different but CrossFit workouts follow the same general flow.
Overview & Warm-Up
The coach will go over the day’s workout and then lead a warmup designed to get your heart rate up and target the specific movements that you’ll be attacking that day.
The warm-up includes a review of all specific lifts and movements for the workout and points of performance to keep in mind.
Strength & Skill Work
After warming up, the workout will usually include strength and/or skill segment where you’ll perform a specific lift or work on a specific skill.
These are programmed in “cycles” where we work on specific areas for several weeks to improve performance in a specific area.
Workout of the Day
The primary workout of the day (also known as the WOD or MetCon) begins when the coach starts the timer. This typically includes a combination of cardio, lifting, and functional movements performed at high intensity for time and/or volume
(How fast can you finish? How many rounds and reps can you do?)
Cool Down & Stretch
After the workout, you’ll be gassed but it’s important to stretch and cool down properly.
The coach will lead you through a few stretches to target the areas that you just worked on.
Different workouts every day to hit all muscle-groups and domains of movement
