Intensity & Your Workouts
Updated: Apr 21, 2019
Constantly varied, functional movements performed at relatively high intensity. There's that word: intensity. How does intensity help improve our workouts? It allows us to do more work in a shorter period of time. Intensity can be defined by power. Power equals: force x distance ÷ time. The greater our power output, the more work we have accomplished in a shorter period of time. We can attribute a lot of our success (meeting goals) from increased intensity across the board.
Now, just because a workout is intense, does not mean it is optimal. There is still a specific way to design a workout, that will include types of movements, volume and length. We also want to make sure we are doing movements correctly & safely before pumping up the volume (so to speak). At CrossFit 1727 we preach this order: technique, consistency & then intensity. Elaborating on that, we want to make sure we are doing movements well, doing them well often and then we can do them faster.
We take great care in designing workouts that incorporate the proven exercise disciplines: running, rowing, weightlifting, gymnastics, body weight calisthenics and sport specific movements. We take these movements and blend them into the optimal workout routine that allows you to perform them at a high intensity and in turn, perform the most work in the shortest period of time.
