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.
The same old thing! “We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year.” Have you been repeating the same routine every time you go to the gym? OMG boring and chances are your body is as bored as you are. It knows what’s coming and you’ll we get less and less from those workouts. CrossFit keeps your body guessing by introducing different movements each class. Each Workout Of the Day (WOD) will be completely unique to the one before it. It’s very hard to “plateau” when your body has no idea what’s next.
Have you ever picked up something off of the floor? That’s a deadlift. Maybe placed that something overhead on a high shelf? Congrats! There you go, that’s a Strict press. When we say functional movements, we mean movements you perform almost every day. At CrossFit 253 we will help you perform functional movements safely, quickly, and efficiently. By performing these movements at a high intensity, you are not only increasing your strength and stamina, but you’re also reaping the benefits of an intense cardio workout. You will achieve more in 5 minutes than you would spending 60 minutes or more on a treadmill!
What?? How about we are measuring different but complete aspects of fitness. When we said each workout is different, it’s not only the movements that change – the length of time varies as well. One day you might do 4 rounds of kettlebell swings, box jumps, and sit-ups. The next day you might be doing as many rounds of pull-ups, pushups, and squats as you can perform in 20 minutes. We’re training you to be a machine whether the workout is 5 minutes long or 60 minutes long. Our programming will teach you to pace yourself so you can stay in constant movement and get the most out of each workout.
