World-Class Fitness in 100 Words:
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 ele- ments 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.
“The CrossFit prescription is “constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movements.” The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. CrossFit uses the same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. CrossFit scales the load and intensity; CrossFit doesn’t change programs. CrossFit delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. CrossFit’s specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist. CrossFit also publishes the CrossFit Journal, designed to support the CrossFit community detailing the theory, techniques, and practiced by coaches in gyms;making you a part of the CrossFit family.” Content provided by CrossFit.com
