Re: "DT"'s Intended Effects

I thought I read (don't remember where, in the Journal?) that you should have a look at the approximate times it takes the elite CF'ers to do the RX'd WOD, then scale as necessary to keep your time in that approximate range. Eventually leading to where you can handle the WOD as RX'd in that specified time range.

Of course, it would help if they'd post a "benchmark" or something so we could more easily judge.

Maybe I'm wrong about this?

No biggee.

i pretty much agree with your reasoning - just wanted to point out, that I addressed this too.

We just have different opinions on the matter. I try to do all WODs as RX'd - especially Hero WODs.
Sean, yes i did miss that. Reading that gives the post that I commented on a different context. we need a handshake smily icon...i guess i'll settle for...

That is what I do, I run a day behind over here in Japan so I check out the average times that people are getting as RX'ed and scale my workout to what is required to get a similar time.

Seems to be working so far...

Re: "DT"'s Intended Effects

This was my first crossfit workout, I found it to be easy expect for the fact I felt like I just ran a bunch of 200m sprints, and got my fore arms so filled with blood nothing calmed them down. (i even submerged my fore arms in really cold water) pretty good workout though.

This was your 1st CF WOD and it was "Easy"...after sprints? What is your background coming into CF?

no I didn't do sprints, I just felt like the fatigue type was similar to do 200m runs. I do strongman training, and I am on the baseball, and basketball team at my highschool. My time was 10:02 as rx'd. btw I keep videos on youtube http://www.youtube.com/user/chrishickson These workout are fun because they are difficult in different ways.
