Sprints or Team sport or Recovery from previous heavy lift days.

10 sets of 200m sprints
30 sec rest between sets

Team Sport:
Ultimate Frisbee or Basketball

*Do your best to hustle, and not walk. Keep moving for at least a half-hour during team sports.

* *In a high intensity, heavy weight lifting regimen, rest is key. More is not necessarily better. If you have asked your body to do something is has not done before, then do not continue. The neurological  stimulus has already done enough to effect growth.

Rest Day

*Note: This weeks programming should be followed as such:

Strength Workout of the Day (SWOD)
5-10 minute Rest
Daily Workout of the Day (DWOD)

You may choose to do only one of these, or both. However, if the SWOD is too much, call it a day. No need to over work your body right into an injury. KNOW YOUR LIMITS!

Crossfit is intended to make you better at life. "Being unable to workout tomorrow because you were pigheaded today is not in line with our goals" (Greg Glassman, CF Founder).
