What does RX really mean?

DSC_1747

What does RX mean?  Why does the program have assigned weights?  Should everyone do the weight on the blog/board?  These are all examples of questions I have heard in the past with regards to athletes going RX or listed weights.  To clear things up a little we should all know that the weights that are listed on the board are programmed for that workout with the top athletes in the gym in mind.  Anytime a Coach programs they should be programming with a certain level of intensity in mind, this intensity will be measured by the time it takes you to complete the WOD, number of reps/rounds you complete in an allotted time and/or how far you can get in a certain time cap.

For example if a 135/95 deadlift is programmed it should be assumed that this is a light load for the top athletes and intensity(# of total reps) will be high, on the opposite end of the spectrum if a 315/215 deadlift is programmed it should be assumed this is a heavy load for reps and intensity(# of total reps) will be lower but for possibly a longer duration.  Once this is established you and your coach can figure our what your “heavy” load should be.

At the end of the day it is both the coaches and athletes responsibility to scale correctly so that everyone in the class has the same intensity during the WOD.  If you choose not to scale and finish 10 mins after most of the class or choose to scale and finish 10 mins ahead of the class we together have missed the point of that days workout.  Be proactive and ask your coach for help when scaling.  Do not chase the RX but instead chase optimal intensity and getting better each day!

Big Steve Carter up in Hrrr

Steve

CFW, welcome Steve Carter to our team.  We’re proud of Steve making the leap from athlete to coach.  Steve is going to be a great addition to your training team here at CFW as he is one of the most likeable dudes in the gym, he has a thirst for knowledge and is always leaning forward to get better.  You’ve seen him on the floor a few times coaching but look for him more often getting better and better each time he steps on to the floor to coach you.  He also has an awesome wife, Mrs Bonnie Carter, aka Bon Bon aka Bonnie Lou..

I started at CrossFit Woodbridge in the fall of 2011 after being urged by my wife to get out of the Globo gym. .   While in the Police Academy I was given the fitness award after being introduced to CrossFit style work outs. I found CrossFit to be instrumental in my fitness routine. As a member of the Special Operation Branch of my Police Department keeping my fitness at a high level is a large part of what keeps me and the members of my unit alive and going home at the end of our shift. I am a very competitive person and enjoy being pushed by all the athletes and coaches at CrossFit Woodbridge. I have participated on two Capital Affiliate teams and most recently in the Outlaw Barbell camp. My favorite WOD is Murph, mainly because I love pull ups. 

Today:

He is survived by his daughters Miah and Ariauna, wife Karyn, siblings Robert H., Charity, Jenell, and Natasha, father Robert, and mother Cynthia Church.

Where would you be?

 

DSC_0317

I’ve heard so many times “Man, where I would be if they had CrossFit when I was a kid”.  No kidding, we’d all be pretty awesome and the world would be pretty scared of us and our fitness.  Not sure if any of us would be professional athletes but, we’d be much more prepared for anything.  Looking at the kids class and how well they move, thanks to Coach Eve, it’s awesome to think that they are just going to get better at being humans and have the opportunity to express their potential through a sport of some sort.  Imagine where you would be…

Today:

I get it, it’s a gym but, Damn!

This post has been requested a few times by several people recently.  I totally get it, it is a gym, you come here to sweat and work hard and sweat smells and sometimes it’s worse than other days.  BUT, other people workout here too so please wash your knee sleeves, wash your wrist straps, wash your headband, wash your favorite bacon socks, your compression whatever, your belt and everything else that can trap that…funk.  Most importantly, be considerate of others.  If you’re the cleanest person in the world congrats to you and you smell like roses all the time, if you’re not, tend to it.  Tend.  to.  It.

Today:

High bar back squat 3x3x3 at 85% of your 1RM

Bench Press 1RM

*This should be a welcomed strength day after these first three days of the week
