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.

Men use 65 lb.
Women use 45 lb.
3 legless rope climbs
2 legless rope climbs
1 legless rope climb
Men use 95 lb.
Women use 65 lb.
For technique we discussed bent legs to make lay to stand easier and legs on box to make them harder. We also discussed body kip legless rope climbs and running man legless rope climbs. I could get hand over hand twice before losing grip strength.
I did the fitness workout in 6:06. First round was 13/8, second round was 7/6/3, third round was 6/3. I could do the raise and lower continuously but had trouble maintaining a good plank and correspondingly good intensity.
It is hard to believe games athletes were knocking this out in a little over 2 minutes.
Finished with finger stretches one at a time, then palms forward and lean forward, palms backwards and lean forwards, lean backwards cross leg over opposite thigh and sit down.
