My Work-out Wednesday posts will be as much for me as for any readers. I'd like to share what I know and also share what I learn. I have a long way to go on my fitness journey but have also come a long way and I like talking about it so here's my first Work-out Wednesday post! And, please, please, please comment and share if you have any input, I LOVE LEARNING!
This week will be an ode to the WOD.
What a WODerful Wednesday it was! What's a WOD you ask? Well, let me school ya, cause I didn't know at first either. I can only assume the peeps who created the acronym weren't too concerned with the fact that it's not actually an acronym at all. W.O.D. stands for Workout Of the Day. The poor little "t" in the was left out, why, I don't know, when the Of got to be included, but I don't argue with the muscles that came before me, I just go with the flow :)
And that's what a WOD is; a prescribed Work-out Of the Day. It's a set of exercises, usually 4-6 different exercises that you do 4-7 times for the prescribed amount of time or reps (repetitions of the same exercise in a row). At our gym we don't have the snatching, jerking, cleaning and lifting in our WODs like crossfit gyms, we stick to exercises with free weights and body strength and cardio, the good stuff but we also have weights for lifting available. BTW, CrosSport in Wenatchee is the BEST gym on the planet, trust me I know ( guess that was my ode to my gym :).
That's all I got this week.
