Rest Times? (Noob)

Hello all, today was crossfit day one overheads of 5-5-5-5-5. I went deeep!

But I did 2 minute rest times, is this correct? I thought I looked through all FAQ's and didnt see anything posted on this

Also forTomorrow

For time:
Run 800 meters
40 L pull-ups
Run 800 meters
40 Strict pull-ups
Run 800 meters
40 Kipping pull-ups


Do I not run the next 800 meters until I complete the pull ups or is it 800 meters, pull ups to failure, 800 meters, vomit, 40 pull ups etc etc with no break inbetween

Is there a rest in between? How does the timing work?

Thanks!

Danny


P.S. love the site, love the workouts, love the idea, love the theory, very excited to be here

For the 5-5-5-5-5, 3-3-3-3-3 et cetera, strength days, you rest as much as you need to in order to put up maximal weights.

As for tomorrow's workout, you start the clock, then you run 800 meters. After that you do 40 L pull-ups in as many sets as you need. Then you start the next 800 meters and so on untill you finish the last 40 kipping pull-ups which when you stop the clock.

Re: Rest Times? (Noob)

I started doing Crossfit back in August 08, starting off just take your time. if there is one thing i encourage it is to keep track of your time so you can track your progress. just start watching all the videos on any crossfit site you come across, that answered a lot of the questions i had.

Re: Rest Times? (Noob)

if it doesn't say "for time" or "as many rounds as possible" or doesn't specify a rest time like barbara (3 minutes between rounds exactly)

Then take as much time as you want between sets/exercises. Generally, these will ONLY be sets across for strength like 1-1-1-1-1-1, 3-3-3-3-, 5-5-5-5-5, etc.

The workouts have fairly literal directions.

There's only like two that are a little vague which are Grace and Isabel which are put the weight overhead ANYHOW. don't need to bother with like squat cleans and such. This is because they were made before any specifications.

I took a walk with a GPS and found landmarks down the street (dead tree, sewer grate, driveway of house x) close to .125, .25 and .5 miles from home. There and back gives me .25, .5 and 1 mile. I just estimate .25 mile=400M. Not perfect, but close enough.

The easiest way to measure running distances is to use G-Maps Pedometer.
