Remember that each workout has a specific intention for stimulus- it’s not always JUST for speed/time or load/weight/max.
So what if you can’t do the workout “as Rx”? CrossFit is INFINITELY SCALABLE and can be adjusted for each individual and their skill level.
Being mindful of how your workout fits into the grand scheme of your fitness is just as important. You could crush it today- but will that soreness take your out for the rest of the week? What happens if you go too hard or assume you can do a movement when it’s not safe and then sustain an injury? What’s the bigger picture?
Everyday your coaches will discuss what the intended stimulus is for each workout. Pay attention and bring your best to do it right.
