Less is more sometimes...

Workouts don't need to be filled with everything but the kitchen sink to be effective.

 

Above Cheryl tackles:

As many rounds as possible in 15 mins of:

250m Row

10 DB Push Press

5 Burpee over Rower

 

Couplets and triplets (2 or 3 movement workouts) can pack plenty of punch when designed well enough. People see CrossFit programming as totally random. That's far from the truth and most trainers of note will have some form of a template they work to for both movement types, loads durations, energy systems worked.

 

Too often in the fitness game we pander to the general public's poor understanding of what constitutes effective fitness and long term progression. They only tend to understand tiredness, fatigue and being flat on their back as a yardstick for a good workout. 

 

So many will 'give em what they want' the long sucky grinders. For recreational fitness enthusiasts this isn't too problematic when they are mainly bodyweight training or using light loads and not over  complicating it.

 

However, if you are trying to help people be faster, more explosive, maintain intensities over multiple time durations there's more nuance required to sustain. Both in workouts and long term fitness and recovery, without excessive physical pressures that lead to burn out or injuries.
