CrossFit Aerobic Capacity: What’s the Adaptation?

Chris Hinshaw of the CrossFit Aerobic Capacity Specialty Course recalls a time when Katrin Davidsdottir asked him why he was telling her to perform a specific swimming workout.

“I love it,” he says of the 2016 champ’s inquisitiveness. “Part of what we need to do is we need to be addressing, ‘What are we trying to accomplish in this?’”

“I put specific intensities in so I can create the perfect adaptation,” he explains.
