I will train to be CrossFit.
Please help, "mess me up !"
1.) Is there one "Glossary" where all the exercises are explained in detail, perhaps with links to demos, etc...(For example, I don't know olymic lifts. What is, and how do I properly do, a power clean, etc...?)
2.) How would one determine appropriate exericise substitutions/equivalents? For example: Sprint distance X can also be Row distance Y or Skip rope for time period Z, etc...as opposed to merely "ad libbing." (Also interchanging the various lifts.)
3.) For someone starting, learning the exercises for approx. 30 days and gradually increasing "intensity", using less intense days as active rest, what guidelines apply to intensity when the trainee is "ready?" That is, is the WOD done as fast and as hard as possible as an ultimate ideal, backing off to slower and and not as hard for the above mentioned active rest days, or is there some other guiding principle as to intensity that I'm not getting ?
4.) How many days per week should WODs be done ?
5.) I'm sure I'll have plenty more ???s.
Thanks in advance for attention and assistance.

1) The "Exercises" section has a number of movements described and some links...just putting the movement into a search engine will likely yeild a good starting point as well.
2) personally I look at movement pattern similarity, duration, ease of application. If space, time,equiptment, sanity are limiting factors...dont worry about the substitution...it all comes out in the wash.
3)You called it...kill yourself once in a while...back off BEFORE you need to...compulsive training is for marathoners and bodybuilders....not us!
4)As prescribed...if pooped...take it easy.
5)We all do!
