Thanks for the responses guys. That's very interesting.
Tim, from reading over at crossfit.com, I understand chippers to be a group of exercises, to be done one after another (circuit style), for set number of reps, no set time?
I also found this definition at gymjones.com:
chipper - An "open-circuit," meaning that a Chipper is composed of non-repeating movements executed at low to moderate loads and high repetitions with emphasis placed on metabolic stress over muscular stress. A typical Chipper will last 15-25 minutes.
I've never worked out this way but I'm wondering if doing something like this on off days (from lifting), how it would "subsitute" for cardio?
And looking at some chipper workouts at gymjones.com, they are made up of 100 repitions:
There is no way I can 100 burpees non-stop. So does someone do as many as possible, take a breather, repeat, until they reach the set number of reps? 100 in this case?
Thanks again guys,
