i'm curious. since i am going to start following crossfit wod's, is this all i should be doing, or should i supplement it with additional cardio and weight training? (honestly, it's hard to stand up after some workouts!) i would just like to know what other people out there do and what they have to say about this question.

Scott, the WOD should be supplemented with either serious sport or recreational, i.e., fun athletic activities.

If you are involved in a sport, that sport will round out your efforts. If not flirt with as many other games and sports as time and interest will allow: tennis, basketball, softball, mountain biking, boxing, etc.

Your sterngth and conditioning needs are being met by the WOD.

coach,

i'm an ice an alpine climber who tries to get out on ice or rock at least one or two days a week. i'm really psyched to have found crossfit and wish i would have had these workouts when i lived out in colorado. i don't know of any alpine climber who knows about crossfit. i think the workouts will benefit my climbing a ton in terms or overall performance, because in alpine and ice climbing you can't just be strong, but have strength endurance. thanks!

coach,

also forgot to mention, that along with my regular weight training that i used to do before i found crossfit i would also practice yoga twice a week and take a spinning class once or twice a week in addition to the climbing.
