This made me smile. This WOD (Workout of the Day) is a common one for our little gym. We do a LOT of workouts that are AMRAP. (as many reps as possible) This one is very short because they only did 1 round. Multiple rounds are the prescribed workout.
But she was sucking wind after 1 round. And she is in GREAT shape.
People knock crossfit because some of their workouts are less than the standard “30 minutes needed for minimum fitness”. That’s what makes CF so good. Your intensity is 90% for short periods of time, brief rests (sometimes), then more high intensity. In running/cardio, we often hear that High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is more effective than long periods of the same intensity. CF is nothing but HITT and serious heavy weight.
