This is what Phys. Ed., could and should be like.
Skill based, fun, exhausting, and addictive!
Without getting bogged down in too much exercise science, it's important for you to know that there is a science and method and point to the kind of programming you find at CrossFit Latrobe.
Which brings me to muscular endurance.
Muscular endurance is the ability of a muscle to sustain contractions against a resistance for an extended period of time. Muscular endurance adds to your overall fitness. It's cool. You definitely want to develop it.
How? Lower intensity strength training. High reps (15 or 20), lower weight load (50 percent or less).
Here's the fantastic news: You don't necessarily have to know the science of it. CrossFit has it all scoped out for you. We program higher rep, lower load days like this regularly.
However, you do have to know and trust us that there is a point to it — a scientific point with your best fitness interests at heart. Do not fall into a trap where you think the only effective weight is a really heavy one.
That's not true. Lifting heavy is good for you, so we have days where we get after max lifts. But lifting lighter and faster is really good for you, too.
You need a little of everything. CrossFit has a little of everything.
See you at the box,
_The only thing standing between you and your goal, is the bull-shit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it!
