Intensity Over Volume w/ Chuck Carswell
This might be a little bit advanced for some of you from a methodology standpoint, but this is a message we try to drive home weekly, if not daily in our classes so I thought I’d share this video that was filmed at a CrossFit Level 2 certification.
The path to results is INTENSITY, not volume.
We believe this 100% at Cróga and that’s why on strength days we focus on strength and on Metcon (metabolic conditioning) days we focus on Metcon’s and sometimes even though we have a 1 hour class we only hit a 10 minute workout at the end, but we expect you to go REALLY HARD for those 10 minutes.
When we tell you to go harder because we can see you have more in the tank, but you don’t want to “make it hurt” any more than it already does, go harder, it’ll increase the intensity.
When we tell you to decrease the weight on the bar and go faster because we think that’ll allow you to have better ranges of motion and move safer, please do so, it’ll increase the intensity.
Or, when we tell you to ADD some weight to the bar while squatting because it’s obvious you’re capable of more physically and we want you to get stronger, PLEASE add weight to the bar, it’ll increase the intensity.
The coaches at Cróga are here to help you and get you more fit, while ALSO keeping you safe.
We WILL NOT tell you to do something we don’t think you’re capable of physically.
And if you’re not there mentally, that is ok. Let us know and we’ll work with you to get you to a point where you can achieve better intensity and achieve the results you deserve.
