    W/up: 5 min skipping, mobility drills, 1 x CFWU

    Strength: Press 15/20/25 for 5 reps then 12/9/6 reps @ 15kg. First time pressing since shoulder injury, felt ok. Building up slowly.

    WOD:
    AMRAP in 12 minutes of
    GHD, 12 reps
    Double unders, 15 reps
    Walking lunges holding 10kg plate, 18 reps
    = 5 Rounds + 12 + 15 + 7
    Have questions about the intensity that I’m training at in WODs. Feels like I’m peaking just when the WOD is about over and I have plenty left in me. I’m taking too long to warm up and get to full intensity. I have a lot to learn about pacing and making the most of AMRAP WODs

  13. The Cell said

    Laila, it takes time to learn where you need to be.

    I always use the analogy of being at the edge of a cliff. You want to be right at the egde. Go over and you’re going to hard, you may get injured, you may not finish. Stay 5 metres back and you’re cruising. Your intensity is too low.

    It takes time to find where the edge of the cliff is for you, just as it takes time for us as coaches to know where someone’s cliff edge is. We do, however, find it. When you find it, you’ll know.

    It is often good to strategise a WOD. As in, have a plan going in for what you’d like to achieve and how you want to break things up, if at all.

    Another key point for maximising the intensity of a WOD and something I have written about before is, don’t rest between movements. The break between movements is a convenient place to take a breath, grab a drink, chalk up. But it’s also a convenient place for your intensity to drop. Go straight from one movement to the next and knock out some reps. Then take a breath. You’ll be suprised how many you can get out.

    Finally, never walk away from your bar during a WOD. Stay on it, stick with it. Grab some breaths, shake the arms out, but do not walk away. Same goes for pull up bar, rings, KB, whatever.

    Hope that helps.

    Jase 🙂

  14. Laila said

    Wow Jase! Thanks for taking the time to offer great insight. That’s a huge help. I will be experimenting with different approaches including the ideas you have shared above until I find my cliff edge. I wonder whether a person’s cliff edge shifts when their fitness improves or if the method of approaching a WOD and reaching/maintaining intensity is the same no matter where your fitness is at. Thanks again Jase 🙂

  15. The Cell said

    No prob’s Laila. That’s what we’re here for 🙂

    Your cliff edge shifts but you shift with it. If you don’t move with it, things become easy, you’re not working at a high inensity anymore and you wont achieve the results you want.

    Intensity is relative. What is intense for me may not be intense for you, but may be too intense for someone else. Everyones cliff edge is in a different place and it does move over time because your fitness improves and your relative intensity changes.

    Your method of approaching a WOD will change over time as your “training age” matures; you become more experienced, more proficient and more aware of your own limitations and strengths. The way I approach a WOD today is completely different to how I approached a WOD 6 years ago.

    Jase 🙂
