What makes CrossFit very different than most other fitness programs is that the result is measurable. In a few weeks we will be selling WOD books. The purpose of WOD books are to track progress. Since many of you just started CrossFit in the last month or two, you are still learning movements and trying to survive through WODs from start to finish. As you become more comfortable with the program you need to start taking responsibility for your own progression. Write everything down! If the the strength is 3-3-3 cleans, you should know what your 3 rep max was previously and try to meet or excede that number.
Certain workouts are considered benchmark workouts. For example, yesterday was “Jackie”. If you did Jackie yesterday write down your time. 3 months from now Jackie will come around again and you can compare your old time to your new time. If your time is faster with less scaling, it is a direct indication that you are more “fit”. Many of the benchmark workouts have names. You can ask someone who goes to CrossFit Hong Kong what their Fran time is and they will know exactly what you are talking about.
