What is CrossFit?
By definition, CrossFit is “constantly varied, functional fitness performed at high intensity”. What this basically means is that CrossFit takes natural, human movements that we all should be able to do, and varies those types of movements with each workout while performing these movements at a high intensity. Each workout is different and is designed to push your body in new and challenging ways.
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program centered on developing a “fitness, that is, by design broad, general, and inclusive.” CrossFit incorporates elements of Olympic weightlifting, gymnastics, powerlifting, and endurance training to help people improve on ten aspects of fitness: cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. This CrossFit WOD website posts workouts daily that can be completed by anyone, only the weights and completion time are varied by the individual. These workouts can be done nearly anywhere but CrossFit is encouraged to be practiced in one of its affiliated gyms. By changing your workout routine and using the Crossfit WOD plan you can open yourself up to an advanced level of fitness.
Crossfit WOD: The Benefits of CrossFit in Sports:
With respect to competitive sports, it is our belief that there is no general strength and conditioning program that is superior to the CrossFit methodology. By utilizing explosive, multi-joint movements and performing them in a high intensity, competitive atmosphere, we can hone an athlete’s mental game as well as their strength and endurance. Exercises such as box jumps, Olympic lifts, and sprints performed under the supervision of our certified trainers will result in faster footwork, increased vertical jump and a general increase in fitness across multiple domains. It is especially beneficial in sports such as volleyball, football, basketball, and any other sport which requires short bursts of explosive power. At Crossfit WOD we hope to bring you daily routines that help increase your overall level of fitness. By implementing a strict routine using these Crossfit WOD high intensity interval training programs you will help increase your competitive advantage.
CrossFit and Kids:
Resistance training, i.e. weightlifting for youth has generated much controversy over the years. However, recent empirical studies have proven that youth resistance training not only increases strength, but is also an integral part of improving general fitness and sports performance. Many authorities such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American College of Sports Medicine, and the National Strength and Conditioning Association have all come out in support of youth resistance training under proper supervision.
