List of Workouts

Hello,

New to the site. I tried the search tool prior to posting anything, but had no luck.
I see CF has names for all there routines/workouts. Is there a thread with a list of names, and details on that workout?

Little confused how to follow the daily workouts, and what everything in tales, but trying to read up on all this.

thank you

Re: List of Workouts

The named workouts are listed in the FAQ. It's on the top of your screen, in yellow, question 4.1.
As far as how to follow the workouts. Every day you do what's posted on the main page. If you're not strong enough to do that yet, then scale it back some. Keep reading the forums and the FAQ. You'll figure it out soon enough.

Tim

Re: List of Workouts

My good sir, welcome.

Not all CF workouts are named ... those that are have the details in the Faq.

BTW, that Faq is a model of what a Faq oughtta be - readable, succinct, comprehensive. It's a goldmine for the CF noob ... and a model of how to write a faq, whatever the genre.

re how to start - the "workout of the Day' (WOD) is always front and centre on the mainpage. But like most, perhaps you don't know the movements well, or aren't sure you can handle the weight etc.

No problem. Click on the "start here" tab in the navigation box (top left) on the main page, and it will guide you. If you need to scale the workout to your own ability, like most do at the outset, the "start here" tab also gives a link to BrandX Martial Arts, which scales the WOD to various levels every day.

There are some great threads on how to start ... search on them for some more info. One word to the wise though - write down your performance after every workout, or post your results in the comments section under each day's WOD. When a workout repeats in 4-6 weeks or so, you'll simply be blown away by the improvement. Nothing like that for a motivator!
