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.

End of an Era

My CrossFit journey has been on a hiatus due to a new job opportunity that kicked off with 5 straight weeks of training (yes including Saturday and Sunday), consisting of 12 hours days except for a few office days and an hour to hour and a half drive to and from location.

I did a lot of awkward object carries (chixsans, 4" iron, 3" iron, plywood boards, etc).  I also spent a lot of time tightening and loosening wing nuts with an 8 pound hammer.

Despite all of this, I still felt my hard earned fitness slipping away.  The training period has come to an end and I will be starting a schedule with 14 days of work and 14 days off.  I will be challenged to make the world my box and get into a rhythm again.
