Re: Not sure how to get started?

Yep, check out the above link and the FAQ for starters.

The workouts are posted on the main page. If you have any questions about the workout, you'll typically find that it's already been asked/answered in the comments for that WOD. If all else fails, ask away in the comments or here, or search around for the answer first.

How often you do the WOD depends on what your goals are. If you're in a bodybuilding mode, then you won't do a WOD every day. Instead you might do what's called a Max Effort Black Box (MEBB) routine, which basically mixes your standard lifting days with WOD days...

The typical CrossFit routine goes 3 on 1 off (e.g. 3 days of WODs followed by 1 day of rest). The typical MEBB routine goes something like WOD-MEBB-WOD-REST instead. But it really just depends on what you're looking to gain. CrossFit isn't a bodybuilding program, so if you're looking strictly to bulk up and build on your lifts, you're probably better off with a MEBB routine or just bodybuilding, period.

Search around the forums for a while, there are tons of threads that have great answers for your questions already.
The key to victory is discipline, and that means a well made bed.
