Don’t let busyness get in the way of your Endurance

I think I ask myself this question everyday and wonder, “How will I accomplish all the things I need to in this short 24 hour period?”  For many of us busy people our workouts are the first things to get put on the back burner.  Everyone knows they should workout. It’s not even that they don’t want to workout its just hard to find the time and energy to do it.  So many of you have shown interest for the Endurance program but the first thing most people say is there is no way I can fit another workout into my already busy day.

What everyone really needs to say is I need a plan!  Well I am going to show each and every one of you how easy it is to plan your week and fit every workout into your busy schedules!!  The idea of Crossfit Endurance is to do 4-5 Crossfit WODs for full time members and then fitting in 1-3 Endurance WODs a week.  Part- time members doing 3 Crossfit WODs a weeks can fit 1-2 Endurance WODs into there schedule.  Ok I know this sounds like a lot of work and workout but really it is simple.

Here is an example week for a part-time Crossfitter MWF you do your regular Crossfit WOD and then Tuesday and Thursday or Tuesday or Thursday depending on if you are going to do 1 or 2 Endurance WODs a week.

Full-time Crossfitters have a little different issue which is called 2 a days.  This gets tricky and you really want to listen to your body and know what days are good for you to have a double workout.  If you know by Thursday you are worn out you may not want to plan a double on Thursday but wait til Friday or do both at the beginning of the week.  We do advise that you to one interval and one stamina WOD if you are going to choose to do Endurance 2 times a week.  This is just to ensure that you get both long and short workouts in one week.

Remember these are just what is recommended. You need to choose what is right for your goals and fitness level. All of this information is  explained more in depth in this great article in the Crossfit Journal. I would advise everyone interested in the Endurance program to read and learn!

  1. Are you going to change the days we do interval and stamina each week or will it kind of stay the same? I am wondering because i am kind of locked into wednesday and saturday (and maybe friday if necessary) and i would like to get a stamina and interval in each week. thanks. jim
