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.

Couraj Apparel

Couraj apparel was displaying their wares at the box today and while I usually wouldn't be interested, the logo really struck me as inspired.  Lion:  Courageous, powerful, free, driven.  Indian Chief:  Wise, respected, warrior, leader.  Star:  Purpose, dreams, goals.

It reminded me of why I started this CrossFit journey and how my star has shifted in the skies.  My goal is to have General Physical Preparedness for whatever adventure comes my way.  I also want to add gymnastics skills to my bag of tricks.

I was reminded of one of the early articles on CrossFit and am forced to re-evaluate my dedication to nutrition improvement.

Last tidbit is the 10 aspects of fitness:

  1. Cardiovascular/Respiratory Endurance
  2. Stamina
  3. Strength
  4. Flexibility
  5. Power
  6. Speed
  7. Coordination
  8. Agility
  9. Balance
  10. Accuracy
