WOD: Workout Of The Day.
How long should a WOD take?

What does Rx mean in CrossFit?
“What does RX mean?” Basically every new CrossFit athlete that joins the gym asks that question within their first few classes. RX means doing the WOD with the movement, reps, and weight as prescribed.. so not scaling the workout and doing it as written on the whiteboard.
Whats is Wods?
WOD stands for “Workout of the Day,” and is most commonly used in CrossFit lingo. The way most gyms work is they have a primary workout of the day, coached multiple times throughout that day.
Is CrossFit bad for your body?
Not only are the exercises themselves risky, but performing them under a fatigued state, such as during an intense circuit, increases the risk of injury even further. WARNING: A very serious, yet rare muscular injury known as rhabdomyolysis is also a major concern with participation in vigorous exercise.
How does a WOD work?
WOD – the workout of the day. This is where you’ll be told to do a certain number of reps of particular exercises as quickly as possible, or you’ll have a set time limit to do as many of a certain exercise as possible. Cooldown and stretching – Either as a group, or you’re allowed to stretch out on your own.
Is CrossFit 3 days enough?
Considering the intensity level of CrossFit, and as with any training or activity, the body needs sufficient rest to recovery and rebuild. The recommended schedule for a CrossFit athlete is 3 days ON and 1 day OFF to ensure an athlete is getting enough rest.
Is CrossFit 2 times a week enough?
Based on my experiences I would recommend going at least twice a week, if you can fit it into your schedule. Once would be good, but you might find that you see more benefits from twice a week. Any less than once a week and you may feel like you’re starting closer to zero.
Why do people hate CrossFit?
Because Crossfit puts so much emphasis on repetitions and time. This focus causes people who do their workouts to care about numbers and not about form/posture/physical results.
