Potentially Stupid WOD Question...

let me first say i looked around for the answer before asking and was unsuccessful...on today's WOD...when they say "squats" do they mean weighted, unweighted or personal preference? thanks in advance, and sorry for the newb ignorance.

Unweighted.


Have you read the Crossfit FAQ? If not, you should do so.

Re: Potentially Stupid WOD Question...

From the FAQ

2.2. How much weight for squats?

If not specified, squats are your body only (aka "air squats"); back squats and front squats use the weight indicated (or adjusted as necessary for completion of the WOD).
