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.

Reverse Hyper

I had a chance to use the reverse hyper today.  Over my snow day, I watched some of Louis Simmons and his development of the piece of equipment.  Since CFG has one, it only made sense to give it a try. 

It was set up with 90# and I reduced the weight to 45# and did 3 sets of 8 repetitions.  It was a little tricky to get on and I found myself needing to scoot down to provide my hips range of motion.  I was able to control the weight well and could certainly feel the immediate relief of the traction and a nice contraction at the top.  I will try to jump on it either before class or after class whenever I can.
