Absolutely Bagged

I've been into crossfit for a little while now, not at an official gym or anything, just on my own.

Anyway, just a quick question here. I am finding that I am just destroyed after doing the WOD...even if it's taking me 5 to 10 mins. Is this what I should be aiming to do or should I be doing more exercise after the WOD if it's not taking me too long?

Any insight would be appreciated!

Thanks guys.

Re: Absolutely Bagged

You are doing OK.
You will get better, but crossfit never gets easy.
Might be a good idea to take a few steps back and ramp up again, gives more confidence and controle with the exercises.

There must be a million threads with the same kind of question. A friendly suggestion: read other threads on the forum. You will learn a lot.

Have fun, Johan

Re: Absolutely Bagged

Not an expert, but I think the usual response would be that subject to what you're seeking to achieve the WOD done intensely is sufficient to achieve a high level of fitness. You may well need to do more sport-specific training (either in addition to or in substitution for some of the WOD's) if you're competing in something in particular. In any case, even when the WOD itself is only a few minutes (which is not that often) if you're doing the CF warm-up (a workout in itself in many regimes) you'll have been going for 20 minutes or so, which starts to take away the impression that it's all too short.

And doesn't the "absolutely bagged" part tell you something!

Re: Absolutely Bagged

Five to ten minutes can be just as horrible as twenty. Don't worry about it.

For the most part, anything done in addition to the WOD should be done before.

Re: Absolutely Bagged

OK cool, thanks a lot for the quick answers guys. I did "Fran" today for the first time and definitely felt it. Going to have to do some work on my thrusters for sure.
