Re: Cross Fit Total
1. Failure demolishes the CNS. If you want to lift frequently which is best for strength and muscular gains (if you eat for muscle of course), then you do not want to go to failure because it will limit the volume you can do with working out.
2. 2 Hours is excessive. Try keeping it to 1-1.5 hours at most. You don't need to be doing that many sets unless you're doing a full body with like triples or something.
3. Soreness is not an indicator of a good workout because:
I. soreness does not occur solely as muscle damage (can be due to excessive volume, new exercises or whatever). The only thing that is more or less proven that soreness causes muscle damage is excessive eccentrics.. and obviously not many programs have that.
II. Soreness limits the frequency of workouts. As mentioned before, soreness hindering workouts = bad because of lower frequency... and less volume = less strength/muscle/endurance/whatever.
3. 400m sprints work. HIIT works, tabatas work, metcons work. Do whatever you feel like doing. BUt yeah, if she can do stuff after WODs then she didn't work out hard enough during WODs unless she is extremely, extremely fit.
