Hello all. Very new to CF, I have yet to do a WOD, so tomorrow will be my first. Alot of the guys/gals at the department are big believers in the program and I've been very impressed with what I've seen so here I am. I'm sure I've seen the answer to this question, but I've done so much reading the last few days I have a ton of info rolling around my head. As a result I have no idea where I might have seen it. When it says "3 rounds for time" I'm guessing it means in the fastest time I personally can do it in. Or is there a set time I should be aiming for? Seems like I saw 45 mins listed somewhere as the goal for completing a WOD. Am I way off in my interpretaions? Sorry for the length of the post. Hope it's in the right forum. Thanks!

William,
When it says "for time" it means as fast as you can get it done, keeping good form and range of motion.

Good luck tomorrow.

What you likely heard about "45 minutes" is that you should attempt to do the WOD under that amount of time or scale appropriately to be able to complete it under 45 minutes. From that point, yes, push yourself to complete the WOD in the shortest amount of time possible.

Post your times to "Comments". Then if and when the WOD returns you can compare your new time to the old time to see how you are improving. Click on the link for the "compare to date", then do a "control F" to find your post. Simply search for your user name to find your previous post.

Hope this helps.

It does help Timothy. Thanks for the info. It didn't take long into my first WOD to figure out why people are getting such amazing results from CF. All I can say is WOW! Have to say I'm hooked!
