I am new to this Crossfit stuff, is the WOD the only thing everybody does, or do you do additional workouts, as the WOD seem kind light on some days as I m looking through the archives?

@randal j (#8)

Your question is a common one for newbies. I'm still relatively new too, but the programming is designed to be your workout for the day.

However if you feel you need more after doing one round, take a 2 minute break and do it again. Many people here do multiple workouts, ie: MMA, traditional strength training, running, etc.

Trust me, even though it looks light, once you get into you vs. the clock, the WODs have a way of becoming increasingly more difficult.

Hope that helps a bit.

Comment #14 - Posted by: sactown kj at December 25, 2013 11:29 PM

@ Randell J.

Personally, I do some from of strength movement beforehand.
I'm going to do 5x5 push jerk before I complete this WOD. At the end of the day, it's all preference and what your goals are.

I guess the lunges don't have to be with the weight overhead? Are we free to decided how it works best for us?

My son Grey does his 1st Crossfit workout today in a home gym I built for Xmas. He wrestles for Air Academy High on the USAFA in Colorado Springs and is a member of AFJROTC. He is gunning for a slot in the Academy. I can not think of a more fitting tribute to start our Crossfit journey together than seeing today's WOD dedicated to Major Gray. It brought tears to my eyes. God bless you and your Family Sir.

Comment #87 - Posted by: Cliff Wilson at December 26, 2013 1:51 PM

To answer some questions in these posts:

- Regarding how many DBs, it is one 35lb DB in each hand for Thrusters and Lunges (or whatever weight you can handle w/good form)

- Regarding position of DBs for lunges hold them hanging at your sides while lunging. It is 6 steps w/each leg for total of 12 lunges per set

- Regarding if you should just do the WOD, it depends on your goals, how much time you have on your hands, etc. If you have a base sport/skill you do as your main thing (like running), then supplement your base workout with WODs. For example, I'm a runner who works a lot of hours, so I do a couple shorter runs during the week, try to also do a couple WODs, then longer runs on weekends and a WOD or two. There are plenty of folks who just do the WODs, give those all they can, and get great results as well. Of course always be sure do a good warm-up/stretching, and cool-down with the WOD or whatever workout you do.

As rx'd, 6 rounds + 8 T2B.

I did this with my two older boys, so I kept things light and didn't push quite so hard - wanted to make sure they were keeping good form on the thrusters. They scaled T2B with hanging knee raises. Ian subbed with 5# dumbbells, and Colin with 2.5# plates for the thrusters and walking lunges. This really hit the grip in later rounds; hook gripping the dumbbells on walking lunges helped somewhat.

Happy Hero Friday! (101 of 120)
