Tuesday, April 3
I'm going to continue with the CrossFit Level 1 seminar info today and talk about the Sickness, Wellness, Fitness Continuum.
It's pretty simple. You're either sick, well (not sick), or fit (the furthest you can get from sickness). So, the fitter you get the less likely you are to get sick. You can see this in the diagram below.
So, what is fitness? Here's CrossFit's World Class Fitness in 100 words:
Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat.
Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds.
Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense.
Regularly learn and play new sports
Look at that, world-class fitness starts with nutrition.
Are you getting sick a lot? Does your blood work have some warning signs? Let's get the base of that fitness pyramid built with proper nutrition and move ourselves towards the fitness end of the continuum.
