The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    I know it's 5 rounds for max of bodyweight, but how long do you rest between exercises/rounds

    Remind me of the specifics of the WOD? What exercises and for what rep counts?

    It's five rounds of max bodyweight bench press immediately followed by max pullups. Your score is the total reps.
    You can rest as long as you want between rounds but the general rule is 5 minutes. There is no rest allowed between bench and pullups though.

    There is no total time limit? That makes no sense. I will have to check over on the CF board.

    Yeah, there is no time limit. Often WOD's are left with some flexibility which can be frustrating. I think the flexibility is added so you can alter a WOD to meet a particular training goal.

    If I've been sucking at strength, I might want to get a better strength response from certain WODs so with Lynne I might take big breaks between the super sets of bench and chins/pullups. If on the other hand, I'm really strong and benching my bodyweight is easy, I might add a metabolic component by resting only 1-2 minutes between supersets.

    Sometimes CF has a WOD like Press 7 sets of 2. No rest periods suggested/defined. You can use this day to find your 2 rep press max or if you want to go Westside, do a dynamic day, resting 45-60 seconds with submax weights for explosive speed.

    I think this is where keeping a journal is essential so you know how you beat one performance from the next, especially when you are starting out and can't do all the WOD's as RX'd.

    At the risk of coming off as a baby, I wouldn't answer the question if I didn't know the answer.

    Sure, but how would I know that about you? In other words, probably upwards of 90% of the information passed online is done by people who really don't know for sure. Going forward I will assume you know the answer for sure if you state it.

    Here's a couple threads from the CrossFit board that will hopefully clear things up. One of the contributors actually quotes Lynne Pitts (WOD namesake)... You can't beat getting it from the source.

    I stand corrected. My affiliate doesn't rest between movements and I think I prefer it that way. It speed things up for one and it keeps things from turning in to a pullup contest since most people can do far more pullups than body weight bench press.
