080112 SATURDAY “Baselines”
Darren, Bryan and Mo do some double unders at sunrise.
“DCF Newbie” for time –
10 pull ups
20 push ups
30 sit ups
The DCF Newbie workout is administered to all new potential clients as an evaluation of their current fitness level, as well as a baseline for people to track progress.
Then strength work:
Use enough weight so that you approach failure each set.
Post DCF Newbie times and weights used to comments.
VERY interesting article. I wonder what all the psychologists would say about the “Kool-Aid Drinkers” at CrossFit. . . -jj
Post thoughts to comments.
A “baseline” is a point of reference usually denoting a beginning or starting point.
By now everyone should have their 2008 goals planned and written down. And if they aren’t in the comments section of this post, you are slacking (don’t even ask me about what a lazy puke you are if you haven’t even picked your goals at all yet).
Now everyone’s homework is to make an attempt for each goal and note exactly where they currently stand on making that goal and establish a “baseline”. If it is consecutive muscle ups, and you have zero – that’s easy. If you are trying for a CrossFit Total, it is time to do it (if you have already tried in the last month, you can use this as your baseline score).
Post your baselines on the 071229 Friday Benchmarks Post
