Modality Question

If 100 OH squats for time is a strength endurance wod. What are some of the other wods called. Like is there a cardio endurance wod, Gymnastic Endurance wod and so on. I know crossfit encompasses all aspects of fitness but what can be combined and what shouldn't be combined for someone looking to mashup some wods or even make a few of there own to hit weak points.


I purchased the figurative template crossfit journal article

Re: Modality Question

Wow, that's sooo confusing. That's why I hate "strength endurance" terms and all that stuff.

What can and can't be combined... generally, it depends on what you're aiming for. Gymnastics movement + weight movement is generally a good idea for a metcon (like Fran, Diane). There's always your tabatas and then your interval workouts. There's tons of stuff you can do.

The main thing is: what are your goals and how can training be best applied to them.

A cardio endurace WOD would be to run or row 5k or 10k for time. I'd say anything else is either weightlifting, gymnastics, metcon etc.

I agree with Steven though that the whole strength endurance, what mashes with what to create some other modality of training etc..... is tricky.

I prefer to either say metcon, or lifting and leave the rest out.

Re: Modality Question

It's kind of common sense- I wouldn't get bothered with the semantics. Cardio endurance? By necessity, the time required for optimal aerobic training (~25 minutes minimum @ +75% Heart Rate, like Murph, Tabata This, etc.) implies an endurance effort. Does a 1 rep max require strength? Yes. Does it require endurance? No. Therefore, it's not a strength endurance 'WOD.'

Honestly, I don't really care so much, and just try to stay out of the whole 'name-game' business.

Re: Modality Question

I think I'm going to stick with the Max Effort, Met-con, Strength Conditioning workouts.

Re: Modality Question

What would you call a workout that would looked like this:

Run 1 mile
1RM Deadlift
Run 1 mile
1RM Deadlift
Run 1 Mile
1RM Deadlift

For Time, post time and load to Crossfit forum.

There you have it, I'm a absolute genius. Strength Endurance workout in 10 seconds.

That looks like a good one to do except I think I'd prefer a 3rm. But I may try this tommorow. I just got me some rings so I will play with them after my workout but this is a pretty good one. Thanks.

Re: Modality Question

I don't know why you guys are talking about 1RM or 3RM. With a weight that heavy, you are not going to be doing any type of endurance or metcon workout. If you are going to do a deadlift and running workout for 5 rounds, with let's say 5 deadlifts per round, you'd probably be using a weight that's like you're 12RM or something like that.

Plus, deadlifts are extremely stressful on your body. And, you have to work up to a 1RM or a 3RM. You can't just warm your body up and go for it. You can't just expect something totally on the max strength side to mesh with something on the opposite spectrume--endurance side.

And, I don't suggest running after deadlifting that heavy. Your lower back will take a beating.
