A lot of people get caught up in wanting to Rx or go heavy. They believe this is the best way to make gains, but actually it is not.
Intensity is the key to seeing gains in your strength and cardiovascular performance. Strapping on a weight vest, piling on an extra 25 lbs or increasing the height of a box jump may lead to diminished speed. There is a misconception that next time I do a 20″ box jump it will be easier and I’ll move faster.
Performing WOD’s at high intensity will lead to results. If using a less heavy med ball allows you to do more reps or go unbroken, this is a good thing. Think about it – what’s better – staring at the med ball sitting on the ground or ripping out reps; it’s pretty obvious which will lead to results.
Keep this in mind for tomorrow’s workout 🙂
