Thanksgiving Day

Westside Barbell's program includes using 50% of your one-rep max on an exercise for a fast, powerful, dynamic effort.  They usually do this for 2 or 3 reps, have a brief rest, and do it again many times.  In CrossFit we ask you for maximum power output with NO REST over and over again. I know this also depends on other things, like aerobic capacity and localized muscular endurance, but work with me here. This is why I ask you to scale appropriately for the WOD.   I want to see your maximum power output.  I want to so you going as fast as you can with no standing around!  I want you to be awesome!  Intensity is your shortcut to progress.

We could play with the 20-rep squat program.  It's right up CrossFit's alley - mentally taxing and physically grueling.
