|Starting 1/7/16, we will be offering an “Endurance WOD” at 6:30 AM & 6:00 PM. These classes will be available to both CrossFit and SweatShop Members.
When training the Aerobic System, a.k.a Aerobic Glycolsis, an athlete works at 60-80% of max capacity for a long period of time. Think 5 mile run, or 20 minute AMRAP. This type of workout is extremely important for recovery mid-WOD or recovery in your weekly routine. You should never be pushing at 100% on these days or feeling like you need to take a break during the workout. If it is an AMRAP, all of your rounds should be even splits and you can work at the same pace the whole time.
Do you ever feel like you are out of breath during a 3-7 minute high intensity WOD? Training your Aerobic System 1-3 times per week, will maximize your potential for WODs such as Fran or 400m time trial because your muscles are learning how to utilize oxygen to produce energy more efficiently.
