Several of you are asking my opinion on CrossFit. CrossFit focuses on compound movements and shorter high intensity cardiovascular sessions (which has my name written all over it). The approach is consistent with what is taught in many elite training programs for various athletes and service professionals (law enforcement, fire fighters, military, etc…). They focus on increasing power, strength, respiratory endurance, coordination, flexibility, balance, agility, etc… They also focus a lot on core strength and conditioning, which is paramount to enhanced athletic performance. So, what do I think of CrossFit? I think it’s an approach that puts equal emphasis on health, fitness and athleticism. I like to do CrossFit in the later stages of my training as I begin to increase intensity because my workouts have often lacked in the functional training department, and CrossFit is a great way to remedy this. Although bodybuilding is my first love, there is plenty of room to explore other options and keep things interesting.
