What is CrossFit?

In workouts, CrossFit combines:

 Gymnastics: push ups, air squats, sit ups, pull ups, muscle ups etc.

 Weightlifting: presses, dead lifts, squats, clean & jerk, snatch etc.

 Metabolic Conditioning: running, cycling, skipping, swimming etc.

It describes its strength and conditioning program as “constantly varied (if not random), high intensity, using functional movements," with the stated goal of improving fitness.

CrossFit’s specialty is not specializing in any one area of fitness. The exercises performed in a CrossFit workout are designed to, over time, prepare the participant for any physical challenge they may encounter. 

Crossfit makes use of 3 Standards: 

1. CrossFit 1st Standard trains athletes to have a good balance in the 10 general physical skills: cardio-endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy. 

2. CrossFit 2nd Standard trains athletes to perform well at any and every task imaginable; training for the unknown and the unknowable.

3. CrossFit 3rd Standard trains athletes in all 3 metabolic pathways. Exercises are from 1 minute to 30 minutes in duration.

Weaknesses in any of these 3 Standards will be worked on.
