Choosing How Long Your CrossFit Workout Is

CrossFit Power Cleans

I’m best at the long game.

Any WOD (workout of the day) under 10 minutes is not my cup of tea. This is why I often don’t place at CrossFit competitions because due to time constraints most of the workouts are under 10 minutes. Any workout over 20 minutes I do good at and if it’s a competition, I usually win.

Today’s Workout was a 20 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) of power cleans, burpees, and a run. This WOD was fun! It was light enough weight (95 lbs) and a good number of reps (7) to keep you moving. Naturally, when 20 minutes came, I didn’t want to stop. So I didn’t.

And because I was working out by myself and there’s no class after mine I didn’t have to. I just kept going.

The Best Part about Working Out Alone:

  • I set the time.
  • I start when I want.
  • I finish when I want.
  • It truly is my workout.
