Crossfit in 100 Words Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow.Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.
– Greg Glassman, Founder of CrossFit
CrossFit is truly functional! Our goal is to make you better at doing the multitude of things that youdo in life… lift, move, throw, twist, turn, run, jump, pull up, push down, etc.
CrossFit is not specialized sport training!We want to make you a better athlete at everything athletic, the total package, not just one piece of the puzzle.
CrossFit does not cater to you! We don’t do what you feel like doing that day. We don’t accept your excuses of why something is this way or something is that way. SO WHAT! Life punishes those who only do what they want to. We tackle what you hate, what you fear the most or what you are the worst at doing. TACKLE YOUR FEARS AND WEAKNESSES FIRST AND THEY WILL BECOME YOUR STRENGTHS.
CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements executed at a high intensity over broad time and modal domains. CrossFit challenges you to try new sports and to follow at a minimum, these basic guidelines for nutrition. Eat fruits and vegetables, lean meats, nuts and seeds, and very few starches and sugars. let me break this down for you….
Constantly Varied: Yes we vary the workouts so it seems like nothing is the same but that is not true. There is a method behind the madness while it seems that every workout is completely random.
Functional Movements: Multi-joint compound movements that are applicable to life. The movements are broken down into 3 categories:
Weightlifting: moving an outside force i.e dealift, squat, clean and jerk, snatch, thruster,etc.
Gymnastics: moving the body i.e. air squat, pull up, push up, muscle up, box jump, dip, etc.
Monostructural: typical “cardio” i.e. running, swimming, rowing, biking, etc.
High Intensity: Mechanics(move correctly) Consistency(make moving correctly a habit) and then intensity. In order to get the stuff that you are looking for… increased muscle mass, decreased bodyfat, increased cardio respiratory endurance, etc.. – you need to create a stimulus great enough to illicit a response from the body. Higher intensity creates that stimulis that forces the body to adapt.
Broad Time and Modal Domains: Some workouts are based on a task priority(accomplish the goal). Other workouts are based on a time priority.(do as much as you can in x amount of time) By varying the priority, it enables athletes to get comfortable attacking any workout
