There are many positive aspects to our CrossFit program but a big one we are known for is periodization. There is a period for load and a period for recovery. During a training cycle, we use progressive load principles to slowly and steadily stimulate the body to adaptation along with active recovery to avoid overtraining, injury and burnout. Simply put, each period gets incrementally challenging and it’s followed up with recovery. Challenge the body and rest the body, and repeat the process.
Periodization is the opposite of random.
For example, you wouldn’t train for a running event, of any distance, by running as hard as you can every day. You would quickly become overtrained, injured and burnt out. Hard workouts are necessary, but so too is recovery.
By designing a CrossFit program that includes recovery, we call it training smarter, not harder.
