By Josh Singer | In Article, Blog | on July 31, 2017

If you’re tired of your usual workout routine, it’s probably a good time to explore one of the newest and hottest workouts out there. CrossFit training is starting to become popular in the fitness world. More and more trainers and experts in the field are recognizing it as a program that promises to help you achieve an effective and satisfying fitness goal. See how CrossFit can help you reach your goals by reading below.

Things You Need To Know About CrossFit Training

CrossFit is a fitness program that is specially designed to prepare and condition the body for excellent fitness. This unique workout does not just focus on one activity. Rather, CrossFit employs constant variation in both movement and style of workout. CrossFit combines a broad variety of exercises to make sure that you can eventually achieve your highest potential. This type of workout includes a combination of movements in gymnastics, running or sprinting, and weight training. CrossFit has caught the attention of police officers, athletes, military personnel and just regular every day individuals who have the desire to achieve better fitness.

A Quick Glimpse Into The Crossfit Training Process

CrossFit classes are general structured in the following way: a short warm up session, skill development and strength work, and finally some type of high-intensity workout that can last anywhere from 5 to 25 minutes. Affiliate gyms or “boxes” usually refer to the activities of as the “WOD” or “workout of the day.” In order to motivate members to reaching their full potential, a lot of gyms use tracking software that allows you to see your results over time. So when you come in and can’t possibly do a pull up on day 1, you can track your strength progress over time until you get that pull up.

Sometimes WODs are taken directly from CrossFit.com. These “Benchmark” workouts are usually done in order to track your progress on a single workout across weeks or months. These workouts published on the CrossFit website typically have thousands of results already posted online from other CrossFit athletes that you can compare to, even in your specific age and weight range. This gives you a great idea of how you stack up to others in a similar category to you.

The Perks Of Crossfit Training

In order to achieve utmost benefit from Crossfit, individuals should be familiar with the 10 fitness domains. Across several months of CrossFit training, you can expect to achieve a perfect balance of the following: Cardiovascular and Respiratory EnduranceStamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, and Accuracy.

Individuals who engage in CrossFit start to build more muscle, burn fat and get into incredible shape. Just look at the example below. KayKay is just one of so many athletes that have had major success through CrossFit.

One of the biggest criticisms about this type of training is that it’s too intense. First, every workout is scalable to the individual, and no one is left in the dust in terms of not being able to execute a workout. While the level of intensity is relative to each athlete and their experience level among other factors, this type of exercise has become a proven way to get fast results and to burns the maximum amount of calories.

CrossFit is certainly a unique workout. And as mentioned, it is also the most efficient means to achieve the highest and most satisfying level of health and wellbeing. Overall, it is not just a workout. Training with CrossFit and within a “box” will dramatically change your life for the better.

Banded Face Pull Y Overhead Squat - Do you need it? #squatcheck

Caption: “👋🏻! So I’d like to talk a little about squat dysfunction. How do you spot one? One of the most common dysfunction is when the heels leave the ground. What happens is that your bodyweight suddenly shifts towards your toes as you lower into a squat. This is related to many possible factors with mobility (poor calf flexibility, hip tightness) as the biggest issue for a dysfunctional squat. How can we minimize this besides working on improving our mobility? I’d like to share a really good banded exercise—it’s excellent for getting your body prepped for snatching, OHS and all kinds of squats. It’s called Banded Y—blahblah—Banded Face Pull Y Overhead Squat. It’s helpful for everyone including athletes who want to improve their upper back strength. It’ll teach your body how to keep a neutral spine position, how to contract all the primary OHS movers and there’s a reason for adding the forward pull—it encourages you to sit back and keep weight on your heels so you can load the hammy’s properly. Give it a try sometime!” #squat #overheadsquat #squatdysfunction #squatrx #bandedexercise #upperback #signlanguage #ASL
