I am relatively new to crossfit having had a small dabbel at it last year without really reading up on it too much; but after some convincing from a good friend in the marines who swears by it I am going to give it the full respect it deserves.
I have been going to the gym fairly consistently for the past 5/6 years however tend to be plagued by injuries through my first love… rugby; so have struggle to go much longer than a straight 5 months in the gym without then having to take a some kind of time off due to a gammy shoulder, ribs or ankles. Being a winger I like to think I am relatively pacey, with a reasonably good fitness level; however there is definitely room for improvement!!
I have a good month or so until rugby is fully in swing so am planning on using this time to build half a foundation and settle into the crossfit work outs. When rugby starts back up I want to stick with the cross fit training but with a 2 hours training session tuesday and thursday and match day saturdays I will only have time for three sessions a week. My concern here being that I want to make sure that I am getting the best out of the three sessions I have and I get the impression to fully reap the benefits you should be doing more.
So… do I pick a date for WoD and work through in order as if I were doing them every day and jump forward once every few weeks when im behind or alternatively just do the wod from the day of my work out?
Any help would be much appreciated.
