CHOICE WOD Days

September 5, 2019

 

 

Hey all,

 

I hope that you're enjoying the programming so far.  I've heard lots of good things about the energy and enthusiasm in the classes, especially for the DT leaderboard wod!

 

One feature of our weeks will be CHOICE wods - where you'll get to choose between (typically) an energy system workout (intervals or aerobic efforts) and a strength workout (designed to increase general structural strength).

 

As a class you'll do the same warm up and then split for the training.  The idea is that you can choose to work on your weakness OR train to accentuate your strengths. 

 

If your weakness in workouts is your aerobic ability (i.e. you tend to burn out in longer workouts) then hitting the energy system training each week will help to change that.  Likewise if your aerobic is good but you find that you get overwhelmed with heavier weights, then the strength focus will help you to shore up that area.

 

I think these days will also be a great way to create a bit of a lower intensity day.  Aerobic work done at a lighter effort (6/10) can really help your recovery and strength work with longer rests is generally a lot less stressful than a metcon.

 

Enjoy your choices and have fun.
