So all we have to do is follow the exercise layout that is posted by day on the main page in the center? and rest when the day says rest?

WD,

Welcome to Crossfit.

That's the usually how it's done, but there is quite a bit of variation. Some people prefer to use a 5-day-on, 2-day-off cycle to better coordinate with their work week. Others will use a scaled-down version of Crossfit so they can more easily cater to other athletic interests. Some freaks of nature can do both Crossfit and their chosen sport(s) full bore. Toy around with it, if you feel its necessary, and find what works best for you.

Also, I couldn't help but chuckling a little about your phrasing - 'So all we have to do.' There's been at least a couple of WODs that, when I first looked at them, I thought that same thing, only to be physically crushed afterwards.

Good luck with you training,

Ryan

WD,

You'll just end up crashing and burning :lame:if you throw yourself too hard at the WOD. Check out this link for getting started http://www.crossfit.com/cf-info/start-how.html
