CrossFit: Why It’s Worth Trying

Image result for motivation crossfit

Below are 5 reasons why CrossFit is worth a try if you’re looking for a fitness journey that can make positive changes in your life.

  1. It’s a challenge: CrossFit can provide a challenge both mentally and physically.  Some say that if you are not progressing then you’re regressing and embracing a challenge leads to progress.

  2. You will definitely see results: if you commit to CrossFit, you will see results in your agility, strength, endurance and overall health.  It will also encourage you to eat nutritious food to fuel your body so you can improve your performance and generate better results.

  3. It creates empowerment: CrossFit makes you feel empowered when you complete workouts you never thought would be possible.  It gives you a sense of ownership, control and contributes to the mindset that you are a total boss.

  4. It’s a culture and a community: CrossFit individuals experiencing real challenges and providing endless support for one another quickly become a family, NOT just a class. Most gyms participate in group activities like The Open or local competitions, and many encourage members to give back to the local community outside their own walls.

  5. It’s workout with a purpose: CrossFit doesn’t only specialize in one area of your body.  It is an overall fitness experience that is fun and aims to improve quality of living by making everyday movements part of programming.

We all know that the Crossfit Games Open is considered to be the World’s primary test of fitness within the community and CrossFit boxes around the world!

To help you prepare, below are some helpful tips to become stronger and perform well in the CrossFit Open:

  • Increase Your 1 Rep Max (1RM) continually pursuing a higher 1RM will not only be beneficial on the leaderboard workout but it can make it far easier to perform Metcons (Metabolic Conditioning Workouts) RX’d; meaning an athlete performs all movements with the prescribed weight and reps.  Getting comfortable lifting heavier weight can improve a CrossFit athlete’s mental game. Only the strongest and most mentally tough athletes will prevail when faced with a heavy barbell during the middle of a deep, dark Metcon.
  • Reduce Off-Season Metcon Volume CrossFit competitors need to engage in specific strength-phases during the ‘off-season’ period. During this period the volume of conditioning and Metcon style workouts is reduced. Reducing Metcon volume in the off-season in favor of planned strength phases in combination with low intensity active recovery aerobic work will help a great deal.
  • Eat MORE food competitive Crossfit athletes must match their extremely high training loads with an appropriate caloric intake. If you’re not recovering from heavy training and getting progressively stronger in the Crossfit off-season, you need to stop the strict Paleo mindset and incorporate more carbohydrates and starches such as rice, potatoes and grains into your diet. Carbohydrates serve the purpose of providing glycogen to the various cells of the body which is used for energy production to support the central nervous system and muscular contractions.
  • Don’t Fear Body Fat Crossfit athletes who strive to stay super lean and shredded year round are shortchanging their strength potential; a malnourished body will view muscle tissue as an energy source which places performance at a disadvantage. Performance athletes and competitive Crossfitters need to view food as a pathway to increasing performance. Increasing calories to support heavy training will automatically put athletes in a state of balance where they can continue to increase strength and muscle size while still maintaining a relatively lean physique.

Why CrossFit Is A Good Complement to Running

  • CrossFit is all about learning the basic exercises, body resistance, weight lifting, aerobics, gymnastics, and high intensity moves.

  • CrossFit exercises involve your whole body rather than isolated muscle groups that strengthens your muscles from head to toe making you a better runner.

  • Since CrossFit combines strength training, power lifting and gymnastics training, it benefits your fast-twitch muscles for sprinting and slow-twitch muscles used for long distance runs.

  • CrossFit helps decrease your overall body fat, increase endurance and speed and help you maintain  a proper form during runs therefore avoiding injuries.

CrossFit San Ramon offers Running Technique Cinics and Individual Technique Analysis and Coaching

Posture & Movement Patterns: Why They’re Important

In Fitness, performance, mobility, and exercise technique is very important.  But what we often forget is how we move the rest of the day.  Our daily movements and posture outside of the gym affects how we move and perform in the gym.  No matter how active or aware we are of our technique, there are always going to be imbalances and variations.  Our goal at CrossFit San Ramon is to provide you with an effective and intelligent training program to uncover and seek out those imbalances and fix them.

Find out what you can do to figure out imbalances in your movement patterns, develop your posture and work towards improving your performance and overall health by joining CrossFit San Ramon today!
