Introducing the Boise CrossFit Running “Club” with Coach Caleb
Crossfit programing is predominately designed to increase work capacity. Our new running program is designed to help specifically with the running portion and cardiovascular fitness of general work capacity. This program is geared to help with the speed and explosive power needed for running and olympic lifting. Finally this program will help improve your ability to push through the ‘suck’ we all know and love in Crossfit workouts.
A baseline of fitness is required before adding this to the current gym programing. I would recommend that no one that has been doing gym programming for less than a month begin this program. This is not designed to replace current gym work, it is going to be an increase in training volume so you need to have a fitness base to work from.
Now having said all that, this program is 10 weeks in total 1 pre-test week then 8 weeks of training with one post-test week. Our testing will consist of one 400 meter run for time then on a separate day an 800 meter for time.
Training will be two days a week of interval work that will be posted. Again THIS IS NOT MEANT TO REPLACE current gym programming nor is it to be done on rest days. Rest days will become more important now that you are increasing your training volume. Direct any questions to myself via email at [email protected] with ‘running program’ in the subject line or in person and of course either Andy or Chazz. The plan is to hold one of the training days together on day a week leaving one day a week to complete the program on your own.
We will have a sign up sheet on the announcements board and the testing days will be Thursday (any time, your coaches will be aware) and Sunday (10am) this week.
