I've been reading the forums here and on crossfit for a while and finally registered yesterday. I did the first week of simplefit last week. I'm aiming to work up to doing the crossfit WODs.
* 1st question: Where should i start?
As i said, i did level 1 last week. Here's how i did:
- Code: Select all
Day Workout Reps/time Comments
Tues L1D1 18 No rush, no real rest. 1.5 hours indoor ultimate
Thurs L1D2 6m Didn't rest. Oops. Should read the instructions more carefully.
Sat L1D3 1m50s 4 games of ultimate - ladder
Sun 3 hours of ultimate
Mon L2D1 20 No rush
I didn't really have any issues with the workouts, and i didn't really push myself very hard. I'm doing full range everything although my squat form below parallel needs work.
Do i continue to just work through the levels, or should i jump to one that seems challenging?
* 2nd question: Sport
I play ultimate (frisbee) at least twice a week for an hour and a half to 4 hours. The timing is out of my hands. Can/should i do this on a rest day? Should i do the endurance/strength/power workout before or after practice if they have to be on the same day?
* 3rd question: Progressions
If i want to work up to doing the pistol squats and HSPU's of the advanced workouts, should i be practising these before or after the simplefit workout? Can i do it on rest days etc etc?
If anyone could answer those questions, or point me to a thread here or on crossfit where i can find the answers, i'd be grateful. I'm sure there is one, but i haven't been able to find it.
