I had been thinking about doing a post like this for awhile but after Amanda came to visit a couple weeks ago and asked me to, I figured I better hurry up and actually write it. So, for those of you who have wondered about certain terms in the CrossFit world, today I hope you find your answers.
I will tell you this, this isn’t an extensive list by any means but rather a few of the most common terms you see in CrossFit (though technically most of these you’d probably hear from your trainers too)! 😉
Rx – Prescribed, in terms of the weight, reps, etc – no adjustments made
WOD – workout of the day
Box – gym
AMRAP – as many rounds as possible
AMrAP – as many reps as possible
Double Unders – when the rope passes under 2x in a single jump (single unders – normal jump)
The Girls – bench mark WODs (fran, cindy, etc)
Hero WODs – named after military servicemen, police, or firefighters who have died in the lone of duty (programmed for additional challenge as a reminder of the sacrifice made)
EMOTM – every minute on the minute
1RM – one rep max
Non-CrossFitters – any terms you’ve heard that I didn’t answer?
CrossFitters – any other big terms you think I’m missing?
Yay so glad you posted this!! I think you should put this in a tab or something so you can keep adding to it when I inevitably ask what something is. 😉 <3
So excited to seee youuuu!!
Also, new blog theme? I like it!
Yes, new theme. Not totally loving it but it fits the new header which I’m really liking…lol!
I don’t do CrossFit but I’m always curious what people are talking about – so thanks for this 🙂
You got it, girl! 😉
Some of the terms confuse me–I’ve never tried crossfit but I’m SO looking forward to trying it out! I now know what WOD means 🙂
Definitely try it!! It’s so fun!
