CrossFit - Greg Glassman
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
CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity.

Dead Lift - Back Squat
24 Hour Fitness
4 laps around track, Samson stretches, arm circles
The first sets were fine. When I put the 45# plates on, it kind of sucked as the plates were those weird octogans with handles so when I set the bar on the ground, it would roll and I would have to reset my feet and grip. Technique felt good.
I used my lifters and a belt. All of the sets felt really good. I like the squat rack. I was going to shoot for 185#, but was a little worried about how I would manage a failed lift.
Finished with some jump rope work (drills, alternating feet, single-single-double)
