How to design a work out

Hi, and thank you for your help...

I seem to remember an article, either CFJ or otherwise that adressed how Coach created the workouts(or theory behind the workouts).

If anyone can remember something similar and direct me I sincerely appreciate it.

Thank you in advance.

sinc, --g.

The closest thing that I remember is here:

https://store.crossfit.com/cgi-bin/c...tr=HOME:cfjbak

...which features the theoretical template for Crossfit programming. I found this in the FAQ, a great resource for these kinds of questions:

Re: How to design a work out

I pick several exercises that I hate/am not very good at. Then I figure out how many of them I'll need to do to hurt myself. Then I double that number. Triple it if the next day is a rest day.

Even easier for the Glassmans because all they have to do is quadruple it and watch the masses suffer. But in a good and very friendly way.

Re: How to design a work out

If you have any questions about "How to construct your own workout routine" feel free to ask.

It's on powerathletesmag, bodyweightraining, americanparkour and simplefit ATM I believe.
