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.

As I continue to struggle with my OH Squats, I opted to do the workout at 35#. I used 10# for the slam ball and did ring push-ups. I finished in 9:28 with a pretty steady effort. After the first round I broke the squats into 9/6. I could do unbroken ball slams. For push-ups I went 5/4, 5/4, 4/3/2, and 3/3/3
Finished with mobility, squat against wall.
