Today's Workout: 040414

The Varsity Gauntlet is next weekend!

400m run
500m row
60 double-unders
AMRAP in 20:00
Then: 30 minutes of mobility.
It’s an aerobic workout all day…if you have double-unders. Limits to your skillset will be limits to your potential capacity, and that’s okay. Scale the run to a distance you can achieve in about 2:00, given the footing outside. Approach the run at about 75% pace; the rower at about 90% pace; the double-unders like a maniac.
Here’s the fun thing about aerobic threshold training with CrossFit: it never gets easy, and it never gets boring. The benefits of a workout like this far exceed an hour on the treadmill, as borne out by reams of research. And it still seems fun and new every day. To become extraordinary, we must do extraordinary things. CrossFit just gives us an easy onramp to the fast lane.
20 minutes of hard exercise, pushed by your caring friends and pulled by an uncaring clock. Easy to start, tough to finish. Over fast, and lasting all day. It’s pretty hard to beat.
Special bonus: the autism program at CrossFit Long Island.
