WOD stands for Workout of the Day which is a daily posted workout that is constantly varied but not random; much thought goes into the WOD’s. A CrossFitter will try to complete the workout of the day as prescribed, or as close to the actual, posted workout as possible. For example, one day the WOD may be: Run 5 K for time. This means you would push yourself to try to achieve your best time. The next day, the WOD might be: Dead Lift 1-1-1-1-1-1-1. This means you would Dead Lift your maximum possible weight for seven sets of one rep. If the CrossFitter cannot complete the workout as prescribed (Rx’d), they should ask the coach for an appropriate scaling option. These workouts are designed to be very difficult for the fittest of the fit so scaling is very common!
