Training Volume Considerations
How much is too much training volume? The answer is…different for everybody. Seriously though, you knew that. We all have different limitations, functional limitations, joint mobility, bone density, connective tissue, and muscle recovery speed. CrossFit Rx’d WODs are high intensity and can include voluminous repetitions. In order to get the most from our program, you will have to learn to listen to your body. Only you have the inside information to know that 150 pull-ups is going to screw up that tendon from your bicep to the forearm so severely that you will be prevented from any upper body pulling for the next 2 weeks. Part of the process of learning this lifestyle of fitness is learning your body. Part of this fitness journey is learning what volume patterns will keep you consistently progressing while at the same time keep you from taking a step back due to overuse, injury, or mental breakdown.
The coaches provide a scaling system for every workout. So use it when you need to.
