Where’s the Cardio in CrossFit?

« | »

Many look at our workouts as written and the question is often asked, "What do you do for cardio in CrossFit?"  I think all who actually perform the workouts can honestly say that it isn’t a lack of muscular strength that slows them down and keeps them from busting out the reps, but more the cardiovascular output. Today, this was definitely apparent.

    Way to work Kyle and Chad! This type of workout will pay dividends in the academy!

  2. Tara always gets my vote for “Best Workout Face”!
    Good work everyone.

  3. Check out Tara’s feet on that push press – that’s a solid push before the press.
    Funny, I’m not hearing any concerns about cardio effects from the group down here at Anthem. That could be because they generally are unable to talk after the workouts.
