program design

I was wondering how the Crossfit WOD's are designed... they seem so completely random, but I understand from posts on this forum and a crossfit event I attended that there is a method to the madness. I guess I am interested in taking the principles of CF and forming my own WODs every day. Do I need to be "certified" or whatnot just to do that on my own, or can somebody give me a basic idea of "how to plan my own WODs"?

Re: program design

That template hasn't been followed for years...or ever, as far as I know.

Unless you're very experienced and know exactly what to do to reach your goals, you're better off following the programming of someone who knows what they're doing and who has been successful programming for others in the past. There's no need to reinvent the wheel on this. Pick a successful affiliate or someone like OPT and do whatever's on their webpage for awhile. There is an art to programming and most beginner CFers don't have the knowledge or experience to understand stress/adaptation, periodization, etc. enough to do good programming for themselves.

Re: program design

The quickest route to some of the info you're looking for is to spend $25 for a subscription to the CF Journal, then print and read the Level 1 Cert study guide. It's squirreled away on the second page of the categories section.
