[face=arial,helvetica][/face]Hello to all who belong to the Crossfit Revolution. I have a quick question. On the workouts that go 5-5-5-5 or 1-1-1-1. The break in between how long should that rest period be??? Thanks for all your help. "Can't feel my legs sarge"..."Can't feel my legs sarge".}

However long they need be. I take about 3-5 minutes between because that's what Pavel says is the best rest period for developing strength, which is the point of those workouts that you mentioned.

Hey great question I was wondering the same thing myself. So on a nice girl like barbera where would you put the breaks? After each round?

Barbara
20 Pull-ups
30 Push-ups
40 Sit-ups
50 Squats
5 rounds for time

With a WOD for time you try to limit your rest so you can have the best time possible. So with Barbara if you don't have to rest don't. As for the rest of the mortals I would end up resting in between sets until I could finish it. Barbara would be a very broken workout for me.

Rest exactly three minutes between each round on Barbera. Compare times of each round.
Barbera without breaks will have you staring at the bottom of a bucket faster than you can say "pukie".
Speaking from experience on this one.

Barbara's rest times are 3 minutes I thought?

Ooops, I forgot about the Barbara rule. Most of the workouts do not include rest, but can understand why you need it with Barbara.

Thank you all so much for all of your help. This has really helped me in just a short amount of time. One more question though. When you have those sets of 1-1-1-1-1. If they don't put a weight on there. I'm assuming that you go very heavy since you are only doing 1 rep. Would this be a correct assumption.:biggrin:

[face=courier new,courier][/face]:uhoh: Another question (sorry so many. Only been doing Crossfit for a month now) Where on the forum do you go to post your times when you are doing the WOD??? Also, Am I remembering right that if you don't have rings to do muscle-ups. That you can do 5 push ups and 5 dips to account for 1 Muscle-Up????}

Malcolm-
1-1-1-1 is meant to be a heavy lift, increasing your weight each set. If you fail then lower the weight.

You post your WOD times on the main crossfit page. www.crossfit.com under the WOD is a link for Comments where you post your times, weight, etc...

As for the Muscle up always check the FAQ they are very good on the main page. I sub 3/3 at this point, rings are on the way
