Hello all! My name is Tony and I’m interested in starting crossfit.
Before I get into the specifics, allow me to elaborate more on myself.
I am 24 and weigh about 205lbs with visible abs. I’m pretty strong and pretty fit.
I used to be more into bodybuilding type lifting but have recently changed to a more fitness oriented style of working out. Here is my main question. Are the WODs enough? They seem like very little work. I mean they seem tough to do. I’m sure it’s hard as hell to do the whole thing. But in the context of an entire day. Is it enough?
A normal workout for me would be something like:
Donning a 40 lb weighted vest.
Pull-ups 10x (start at 10 then do as many as I can)
Pushups 40x (start at 40 then do as many as I can)
225lb Squats 20x (I can always do 20x of 225 squats)
Repeat 3-5 times (depending on how I feel that day)
There is no rest between the rounds
Then I remove the vest and hit:
Chest Machine 20x
Leg press 30x
For 3 rounds
Now I see a workout like “Barbara” and it seems like although it would be hard to do. It wouldn’t be enough for the day.
Anyone that could help me out would have my gratitude.
I also have questions on rest days. How often and how frequently do you guys rest? And when you rest. Is it a pure lazy day?
