As I shared in episode 509, I recently completed my CrossFit Level 1 Training. It really got me thinking about how I can make sure I'm not simply going through the motions of exercise, but that I'm really doing the right things for my body and my goals. Too many people 'check the box' by going to the gym, but they aren't increasing their fitness or moving towards their goal of fat loss.

I texted my good friend and former trainer Nathan and asked if he'd help me establish a general framework for my own workouts, within the CrossFit format I love so much. See, in a CrossFit gym, owners/trainers can choose to write their own programming. Some programming is fantastic. Some leaves much to be desired. My fitness isn't in the hands of my gym owner, my fitness is in my hands. After Nathan and I began chatting about this over the phone, I said, "Hey! I think my podcast listeners would love to listen in on this conversation! Are you okay recording this with me?"

He agreed, and that's what we're doing in today's episode.

Terms that come up include: 

Metcon: metabolic conditioning

AMRAP: as many reps as possible

The general structure Nathan recommends for me, based on my goals and my current level of training includes:

  • 1 rest day per week
  • 3 compound movement strength days, focusing on relatively heavy weights, multiple sets of 2-6 reps
  • 4 metcons per week, most in the 6-12 minute range
  • 1-2 single modality workouts, also high intensity (running, rowing, biking, swimming)
