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.

Metcon (Time)

For time:
800 Meter Run
80 Alternating Dumbbell Snatches (50/35 lbs)
80-Foot Walking Lunges with Dumbbell in Goblet position (50/35 lbs)
800 Meter Run

I scaled this to 30# for the db snatches and did the lunges unweighted.
First run was 3:57
Finished the 80/80 at 12:16.  The db snatches were brutal.  I went 26/14/10/10/10/10.  By the time I got to the lunges, my legs felt like jello and I did them unweighted.
Second run was 5:03
Total time 17:19
