CrossFit is defined as functional movements that are constantly varied and performed at a high intensity. It is core strength and conditioning program, and is designed to elicit as broad an adaptation response as possible. CrossFit is not a specialized fitness program but a deliberate attempt to optimize physical competence.
In the common vernacular they are referred to as “cardio.” CrossFit’s third fitness model, the one that deals with metabolic pathways, contains the seeds of the CrossFit “cardio” prescription.
The key to developing the cardiovascular system without an unacceptable loss of strength, speed, and power is interval training. Interval training mixes bouts of work and rest in timed intervals.
The benefits of weightlifting do not end with strength, speed, power, and flexibility. The clean and jerk and the snatch both develop coordination, agility, accuracy, and balance and to no small degree.
Traditional gymnast has no peer in terms of development of these skills. CrossFit uses short parallel bars, mats, still rings, pull-up and dip bars, and a climbing rope to implement our gymnastics training.
At CrossFit “power” is the undisputed king of performance. Power is, in simplest terms, “hard and fast.” Jumping, punching, throwing, and sprinting are all measures of power.
These are motor recruitment patterns found in everyday life. Others are somewhat unique to the gym. Squatting is standing from a seated position; deadlifting is picking any object off the ground.
