Welcome to the WOD forum
« on: December 23, 2005, 06:15:44 AM »
I figured I'd clean the forum up, as we're no longer using this for the WOD comments. This forum will be for the discussion of the Workout of the Day concept, as well as questions and suggestions about the WOD in general, or on one workout specifically.

Awesome.

Will you ever put in weighted exercises, or do you think that only bodyweight training will be used?

If you want weighted exercises, check out www.crossfit.com . That is what I would be using if I WERE to use weighted exercises. Otherwise, I'm operating on two assumptions:

1.) most of the people I train with regularly don't have access to gym equipment
2.) many others don't have enough time to make it to the gym every day

if you combine this with the fact that a properly designed bodyweight program can garner most of the same beneifts of a weight program, you begin to see why it will be all bodyweight skills. I've also found that the less excuses you have for skipping the workout, the better, and if we're operating with minimum equipment, that eliminates many, if not all of the excuses I commonly hear :D

I will be attending the Crossfit certification seminar in February, though, so I believe wholeheartedly in their method. If you ever have any questions about how to incorporate weightlifiting into a practical and functional workout for Parkour, don't hesitate to shoot me a line.

Haha, I'm saving that for this evening AFTER some Parkour, as I wouldn't be able to use my arms at all for training if I did it first!

Luckily I just got my power rings the other day, so I can do it as Rx'd ;)

sweet, i definitely think i am going to do the WOD as much as i can now. I always do a little workout right before bed, that mostly consists of handstand pushups, sit ups, push ups, curls, lots a handstands, and a lttle bit o' break dancin' lol. but i really want to vary the things i do every night because it is getting kind of boring now.

Look for the link(s) on the main page. Should be in one of the drop down menus on the side. I'd get it for you but my internet is going soooooo slow so it would take me 5 minutes to navigate to the page.

Would it be possible to have links to the APK WOD archive? You already have this for the Primal Fitness WOD.

I read it, and caught the links to Primal Fitness, CrossFit, and the affiliates. I guess I skipped over the APK, or thought it was something different. Sorry. My bad. That's exactly what I was looking for.

Also aqt crossfit.com there are many many people who have posted other equipment free workouts that are killer.  So if you are finding whats here to not be to your liking, or just want to try some new stuff, head over there.

NOTE: many of the crossfit exercises, "equipment free" or not, will require a pullup bar. So find a good tree, or get one to go in your door jam;-)

well, this thread is old... anyways... seeing as it says "suggestions for the wod" in here would this be the place to make workout suggestions? because i came up with a fun lil crossfit-esque workout tonight and it was amazing.


alternate between pull-ups and hanging leg raises until fail
do that many push-ups
that many squats

repeat

i went from my fail number down one each round. i couldnt finish, but it was AMAZING.


you can throw any other exercises you want in there but i figured these got the main muscle groups in

-hanging leg raise-
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0ysNevIv0w
if youre a beginner you can always bend your legs, and try to touch your knees to your elbows

The shadow overtake us, we are known
We're more than carbon and chemicals
Free will is ours and we can't let go
We are the image of the invisible"

Anyone know why the WOD doesn't update daily? Its no big deal, the WOD is always extra ontop of whatever I'm doing for that day, but I'm always excited when I wake up and see a new WOD and quote for the day.
Live life an optimist, its more fun.
Parkour isn't just a physical activity, it's a lifestyle. Give yourself a goal and call it Point B. You are currently at Point A. Show your ability as a traceur to get from Point A to Point B as quickly and efficiently as possible!
