In CrossFit we want to be well-rounded in all areas of fitness. If you just look at the first two words of the definition of CrossFit
=Constantly Varied, Functional Movements, High Intensity.
Constantly varying the movements, the time domain, the energy system we want to target.
Yesterday, we did a short burner workout. We most likely stayed in the Phosphagen and Glycolitic metabolic pathways. These two pathways are both used within the first 2-4 minutes of a workout.
Today we will target the Oxidative metabolic pathway. Our bodies turn to this energy system for longer workouts.
In order to be well-rounded athletes, we have to train in the different energy systems to become more efficient in each area.
Outrun the lifter.
Outlift the runner.
