The CrossFit WOD Cycle


I have always said that there is a cycle that we go through with each and every CF workout of the day (WOD).  I have explained it to many people, and I finally created this graphic to demonstrate what I mean.

You have to click the graphic to see it.  I can’t figure out how to make it big enough to see without clicking on it…suggestions welcome.

CF cycle

In general, the cycle is “That’s not so bad” >> “I’m feeling good!” >> “”This sucks…please kill me…I’m dying…Oh God.” [insert optional crying] >> “Thank God it’s over…I think I’m going to puke.” >> “That was awesome!  I feel great!  Can’t wait to come back tomorrow!”

What do you think?  Do you go through this cycle when you CrossFit?
