What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that consists of constantly varied, high-intensity functional movements. Developed by Greg Glassman in Santa Cruz, California in 2000, CrossFit’s popularity spread beyond the United States with the first CrossFit Games in 2007 and it has since been widely accepted to be the fastest-growing and most valid functional training method across the globe.
CrossFit focuses on the 10 general physical skills in humans and their development.
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 (clean and jerk), 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.
