If you do CrossFit or high intensity at home, you will find it very useful to have a wall timer/watch.
Not only is it a way to feel a little more like you are in the box, but it has some clear advantages.
In this article we will analyze the best options.
Advantages of training with a stopwatch
These are the reasons why training with a stopwatch is recommended:
- Increased efficiencyWorking with the scheduled training and rest time helps to maintain the rhythm of the training. When the session is guided only by sensations, it is easier to extend the duration of the training.
- Increased commitmentThe fact of having the requirement to follow the chrono increases your commitment to perform all the training programmed instead of making modifications.
- Increased incentiveSometimes we all feel lazy to train. Using a stopwatch reminds you that the session is usually no more than 45-60 minutes, and it is easier to start knowing that it is a short period of time.
