Back in mid-September, we took our first attempt at one of the benchmark WOD’s we call ‘Baseline.’ While the actual ‘Baseline’ workout can be different from gym to gym (Most CrossFit gyms use Rowing, Squats, Sit-ups, Push-ups, and Pull-ups for this fast and furious workout), the concept is the same: The WOD is used as a sort of ‘diagnostic’ or ‘pre-test’ when starting a training program, and then repeated every few months and at the end of a training program to hopefully see your times shrink and your level of fitness/metabolic conditioning improve. Now that we have our diagnostic data in our CrossFit P.E. Fitness Journals, we’ll be able to hopefully see a faster time for the WOD after attempting it today for the second time.
For those of you that beat your time, we will be having another PR BELL CEREMONY to celebrate your accomplishments in front of the platoon!!! HOOAH!!!
