(Thanks to Google for that definition.)
Today we began the 3rd iteration of programming here at CF RHC. With each successive change, we get closer to solving the problem of how to achieve optimal fitness in our CrossFit RHC crew. Accomplishing this general goal requires a balanced approach to our shared goals of better strength and conditioning, as well as our individual goals of specific skill improvement and increased mobility/movement ability.
This month you'll see our skill and strength work combined in the "A" section of class. This work focuses on developing virtuosity in basic functional movement patterns, such as horizontal pushing, vertical pulling, pulling weight off the ground, squatting, triple extension (e.g. cleans), etc. We think this approach will be more fun and also allow for a longer warmup focused on mobility and technique.
You'll find the WOD in the "B" section of class (and sometimes "C"). These are our typical CrossFit workouts of constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity, but we'll be taking a more systematic approach by arranging these so that we train different energy systems on different days. This means that time domains, rest periods, loads, and complexity of movements will all be varied to elicit a distinct response to each days training. Some of these days are meant to be tests or benchmarks, while others are intended to prepare you for the tests.
