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.

Yoga Sequence

I have been attending yoga for a little over 9 months and am finally getting used to the routine at the beginners class.

We typically awaken our breath in child's pose or another pose.  Something relatively light like cat-cows.

Then we go into Sun A, which typically includes Warrior 2, extended side angle, reverse side angle.  This is when we introduce chataranga with plank, upward facing dog and downward facing dog.

Next we move into core work which includes sit ups with knees butterfly flared out and bicycle crunches.

Then we go into twists like prayer twist.

From there we go into balance poses like eagle pose, staff, dancer's pose.  We typically include wide legged folds now.

We transition to pigeon poses and then with twisting right leg over torso and then left leg over torso before going into corpse pose to close the practice.

Advanced classes often includes inversions and increased difficulty of the above poses.

I have only attended sculpt once and have yet to try hot yoga.
