Wife new to Crossfit

The wife is wanting to work out 3 days a week, plus a fourth day of some sport / activity with me. We golf, play tennis, mountainbike, etc. on the 4th day.

How should we break up the WOD's for the other 3 days? Metcon - Heavy - Metcon?

Her goal is over all fat loss and overall better fitness / health.

Oh, and her diet is all ready stellar, while mine still needs work.

Thanks!!

Watch out Brian, she might start bossing you around soon

Your plan looks good. Problem is you might start picking your favourite WODs and avoiding the nasty ones, so I would maybe do a roulette with MetCons in one bag and Heavy in another and see what comes out
Otherwise just follow the Official WODs in order and don't worry how far behind you fall, just keep the order.

Or you could do a CFWF or CFFB style where you do some heavy work and then a metcon.
