When you start in a CrossFit box as a new crossfitter, you’ll typically attend the classes on the days that fit into your schedule. At this point your training is 100% random – you don’t know the WODs in advance, and you don’t plan you own training. This might go on for the first year and take you to a certain level of fitness.
Our personal experience from what we’ve observed in the community in Denmark is that CrossFit from that point and onwards typically will go into 2 different directions – 1) those who train for fitness and health, and 2) those who take CrossFit to the competition level.
The first group who train for general fitness and health will typically keep on following the random WODs at the box, while the second group who start training for CrossFit at competiton level for the most will start training more planned.
In the next couple of weeks we will look into how competition crossfitters train – and we’re looking forward to sharing their thoughts with you!
