Workout of the Day
Wow, seven sets of 7 reps today. This is the only real HEAVY day until Friday, the 24th, so don't dilly dally and go too light.
"There is a tendency for new CrossFit athletes and trainers to avoid heavy days entirely or execute them incorrectly. However, CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program. While people sometimes characterize CrossFit by the mixed-modal workouts for time (met-cons), this is a limited view. Days devoted to strength training are an essential variant of CrossFit and are also "CrossFit" workouts.
Heavy days are necessary to build top-end strength and power or work capacity in the intervals of about 10 seconds or less. Power output decreases with time, meaning that an athlete's work capacity in very short time domains sets the theoretical limit for his or her entire curve. Heavy days are essential to a general physical preparedness program and should be used at least once a week."
