CrossFit: How much weight should I lift? (Part 1)

Posted 30th July 2013 by Josh Schouten

I get asked all the time “how much weight should I lift?” “Should I be using the prescribed (Rx) weight for this WOD, or should I scale it?”  Ultimately it depends on your individual goals and the training phase.

Its worthwhile knowing that strength training imposes a physical stress on your body, and when managed correctly you will see positive adaptations.  Physical stress damages muscles tissue and our bodies need adequate rest and recovery to adapt. There are many variables that contribute to the amount of stress being applied. The number of sets, the number of repetitions, the tempo of the exercise, the rest between sets, the weights lifted, and the rest between training session are some key factors. Learning to manage the training stimuli is critical to your success in the box.

You just gave your Workout Of the Day (W.O.D) everything you’ve got.  Shifting large loads through a full range of motion has left you lying on the floor in a puddle of your own sweat. Well we hope it’s your own!  You SMASHED IT, and now your body is ready for some quality post-W.O.D nutrition.  So what do you eat after your W.O.D?  Is a simple protein shake really enough?
