Law Of Accomodation

Taken from the CrossFit Journal Article "CrossFit Westside?"

Law of accommodation—Accommodation is the
decrease in response of a biological object to a
stimulus. In other words, if we train the same
movements under similar training loads over a long
period of time, performance gains will decrease.
It is our objective, then, to avoid accommodation.
We avoid accommodation by modifying training
programs either quantitatively or qualitatively:
• Quantitative: changing training loads
(total amount of weight lifted).
• Qualitative: replacing the exercises.

200m Overhead Walk

Rest minutes then
4 Rounds for time
