The majority of our training is shorter duration, typically less than 20 minutes, but high intensity.  This is also called “anaerobic” style training.  We prefer this type of training because it is very effective in developing things such as power, strength and speed that help us in overall athletic development.  The other end of the spectrum is “aerobic” training, which is also referred to as “long, slow, distance” training.  These two systems work together and both have a place in your training regimen depending upon your goals.  Anaerobic training can help to develop your aerobic capacity and a higher level of aerobic capacity will allow you to recover from anaerobic training faster.  Sundays are meant to be that long, slow, distance style training.  While we still perform functional movements, we want you to focus on continual movement with minimal rest for at least 30 minutes.  If you do not come in on Sundays, we recommend working in this type of training once or twice a week.  Not only is it important to be comfortable performing longer duration workouts, it is a great way to burn some additional calories while taking a break for the high intensity style training.  We have seen in the past that working this into your existing CrossFit training schedule can have some big effects on weight loss and performance.
