A word about Programming and rest days…
Our goal at CrossFit Gantry is to provide our members with the best coaching and programming we can. In true CrossFit fashion our Programming is broad, varied and inclusive. Our programming is designed for you to attend our classes in any combination of days and still see benefits. As you grow as a CrossFitter you will develop a personal program and a routine of attending classes through the week.
For optimum results, we suggest the following combinations of work/rest days:
- Every other day
- 2 days on/ 1 day off
- 3 days on/ 1 day off
- 3 days on/ 2 days off
- 3 days on/ 1 day off/ 2 days on/ 1 day off
Experiment with these different combinations or talk to a coach to help determine what works best for you’re your schedule and your body. Keep in mind that rest days are just as important as the days you do CrossFit. Your rest day should be used for recovery, replenishment, mobility and/or massage. It is important to balance the stress load of workouts by taking regular and scheduled rest days. Don’t wait until you are physically and mentally exhausted to take a day off.
