Our constantly varied workouts serve a functional purpose–they help develop increased work capacity over broad time and modal domains. This is our job as coaches. We sit down every week and two coaches program the workouts together. This creates greater selection and more balanced workouts.
Constant variance also prevents boredom! Today we are doing heavy front squats. Tomorrow will be some metabolic conditioning. I remember trying to follow a workout plan that had me to the exact same thing every Monday-Wednesday-Friday and a different body part Tuesday-Thursday. It was a six-week cycle where you added weight each week. I never made it past week two because I always got bored and lost desire to do it. I neglected the movements I wasn’t good at, which stunted my physical development. We will never allow this at CrossFit Mt Olympus.
Our goal is general physical preparedness, but we all have different strengths and weaknesses. Many of you have attended a running clinic and we are looking to do more of these.
