Heart-rate recommendations, Zone Training, Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE):
As a CrossFit Athlete have you ever wondered how hard to push yourself in a workout? At CrossFit Main Line every workout is accompanied by the ‘intent’, a short descriptive that give the Athlete recommendations on exertion levels. But, sometimes the lines are blurred. In class we see a wide diverse group of Athletes with different training ages and levels of experience. For some, knowing how hard to push themselves may come easy while others may pushing themselves to hard, ending with a significant drop in power output. Our goal at CrossFit Main Line is to educate our Athletes on how to sustain work output. For this reason, regularly scheduled interval training is programmed to achieve a desired stimulus.
The guide attached is specific to our programming and in this simple form outlines energy systems training (EST). Understanding the difference between long-term, intermediate and short term energy system training can dramatically improve your fitness level and success in our programs. Providing this ‘intent’ on how hard to push yourself insures that you are getting the most out of your time with us and not overtraining.
