So...this workout was done LAST week and I'm just starting to feel NOT sore LOL! It was an easy WOD to follow but when that happens it means your endurance needs to kick in. Still considering myself a newbie to CrossFit, I decided to grab a heavier bar with NO WEIGHT on it. Pro Tip: Don't try and look like a showoff and put plates on your bar. Access the workout- if it's higher reps and multiple rounds you need to go light. Don't just throw plates on blindly because if you do that you're putting yourself at risk for injury.
For me, I want to make sure I have all of my forms down first and feel confident in those so I don't injure myself, once I do that and feel comfortable, I will start to add weights. Safe than sorry is always the key, especially when you're doing a class that is super high in intensity and reps!
