Broad General Inclusive Fitness

The concept of CrossFit is easy to grasp. It is a broad, general and inclusive fitness.

CrossFit is designed to develop the body in different domains to achieve optimal overall performance. This is achieved by creating a balance of mind and body using various forms of functional work.

In building a routine around functional movements, you create a balance in all ten of these very important capacities:
  • Cardiorespriratory Endurance
  • Stamina
  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Power
  • Speed
  • Coordination
  • Accuracy
  • Agility
  • Balance
For example, let's take two types of athletes: a competition Power lifter and Runner. The Power Lifter may be able to squat 500lbs and run a 8:30 mile. The Runner's squat is 195lbs, but runs a 4:50 mile. While both exceed in their own domains, they are lacking in other areas.

It makes more sense regarding a human's functionality where a combination of the two types is ideal. This third type, squatting 350lbs and running a 6:00 mile, would be a much more efficient machine... This is what CrossFit ultimately helps you achieve.

Development: Goblet Squats 5×8

Today is the culmination of a 5 week Front Squat cycle. Today you will be working up in weight on Front Squat singles, and hopefully obtaining a new 1RM. The first working set should be the weight you did for your Triples, the second working set should be the weight you did for your doubles, the third working set should be close to your old 1RM, the fourth set should ideally be a new 1RM. If you make that, go for a heavier weight if possible. If you fail, go back and get some singles at your old 1RM.
