Denise with a fully extended burpee, even after 15 minutes!


First off, if you feel like you need more after a WOD, you probably didn’t work hard enough. CrossFit is constantly varied, functional movements, done at a high intensity. That means the time, type, load are all constantly varied. Just because a workout lasts for 3-7 minutes doesn’t mean you need to do another. That 3-7 minutes should have been done with some serious intensity. I understand if you are not at a level where your intensity can be that high. That is an entirely different situation and still doesn’t call for another workout. It probably calls for a little skill work so that you can eventually get yourself to a point where you feel like you are able to work at a higher intensity. If you continue to do more work without proper technique and ability you will always be at the same point, looking for more. One CrossFit WOD for a day should be more than enough for a normal human being (unless you’re training for a serious competition). None of us are going to the CrossFit games this year. So for now, lets build our skills and keep it to one WOD with a high level of intensity. Building a good solid base and a body and mind that are physically and mentally prepared for anything is my goal for all of our athletes at Auburn CrossFit!
