BEST ANSWER: Hi Kathy,
Thanks for your question. It’s important to remember that when they say “add five percent of body weight” what they usually mean is add 5% of your bodyweight divided by how many repetitions you do in a set. So if you do ten pull ups and complete one full repetition with perfect form then add 5%. Now admittedly this doesn’t always happen so I will play devil’s advocate here and say there are two reasons why we may see very little change in the weight we use in practice: 1) We don’t often use enough weight in practice to fatigue our muscles and 2) For some people the only reason their form needs to be perfected is because it results in more muscle growth.
Hope this helps! Good luck with CrossFit! Don’t forget, even everyday exercisers can get great benefits from CrossFit online workouts HERE.

How Many Days Per Week Can I Do Crossfit?
” Answering this question has always been difficult because there are so many variables that can influence your results. It depends on what you want to accomplish with Crossfit, how experienced you are as a Crossfitter, your current fitness level at other areas of your life, the specific program or workouts that you should be completing and their intensity levels, how old you are, etc. As Coach Tom describes in The Overtraining Syndrome article: “This is not hard science. There’s no quantifiable way to answer the question of “how much volume should I be doing?” The biggest variable that determines success or failure is often our mindset! When people ask me that question they may have lost faith in themselves after struggling for years with ineffective training programs and diets only to hit dead-ends throughout their whole lives without learning anything beneficial about exercise physiology. Or perhaps they want more honest answers than what most trainers spoon out every six weeks at this time of year when times get tough because it seems like there isn’t enough time in the offseason to do everything… but then again maybe if we just ask them “How many days per week will work for me? Then let’s start down that path.” That was my initial response. However I really needed some real data before making any final decisions about whether it would work for me personally, basing my personal decision off statistical averages rather than individual differences (individual muscle fiber responses to different types of training).
