Try Workout Of the Day


I wrote about Crossfit in my very very very early posts. Here is the link. I called it 'the next big thing'. Well...I would now like to correct my self. It is the NOW BIG THING. It is absolutely insane. The workouts are like 15 - 20 minutes long (including the warm up) but extremely high in intensity. I have been going to the guy for a long long time, but after trying this, I was seriously depressed because all that hard work did not REALLY make me all that fit!!

The main idea is a combination of strength training and cardio. Typically we do a strength training session and then a cardio session, BUT what these Crossfit super humans do is do both at the same time e.g. 21 clean and jerks without any rest and with a reasonably heavy weight. I have recently start some Crossfit routines and the numbers and times are impossible to reach e.g. 100 pull ups (kipping pull ups), 100 push ups, 100 Squats and 100 situps. Now, very honestly, this will completely burn you out. If you want to be FIT i.e. really really fit then go to a crossfit affiliated gym and see the changes in your body. Ahh but if you want to have that bodybuilder sort of look then, crossfit ain't for you. Crossfit is for people who want to adopt to a healthy liftstyle rather. You will definitely get a good physique, but more like a toned and defined look rather than a bulked up body builder look. At the same time, you get the strength and stamina. Maybe that's why everyday, more and more women and moving towards crossfit!!! HMMM!!!!

Go to the crossfit site and read about the concept. You can view lots and lots of their videos on youtube. There is this lady called Nicole and MAN is she strong. Go on...type in Nicole crossfit on youtube and you will see what I mean.

Try the easiest routine of crossfit and share your experience here :)

Hi Usman
Welcome back to Blogging.
I have been a reader of your blog from quite a while, and noticed your absence too.

Cross Fit has become the new 'hot' fitness regimen, but at the end of the day there is really nothing revolutionary going on within Cross Fit. The principles have been around for a long time and I would also tell you that Cross Fit can certainly help you with over all strength and fitness. However, the best way to body build or sculpt is still to focus and isolate muscles within a traditional well equiped gym. I can tell you this because I have been a professional bodybuilder for over 8 years. Thanks so much and I enjoy your site.

Crossfit is a great way to go. I agree with arvin that your story is indeed impressive and should be an inspiration to many people who wish to do the same. It does take a lot of work, but perseverance is what people need the most.

Great Post. I agree one hundred percent.

It takes less time with their training. Ideally, it should take 25 to 45 minutes. Long breaks between sets will not achieve their objectives. Be forced to keep moving and your body will be upwards. As you increase the pace of its muscle to obtain training, your body will increase the speed at which you create muscle.

Kris @ Health Blog said...

I've been doing crossfit for the past four weeks and I think this is THE BEST form of training that I have found so far in my life.

The exercises are ridiculously hard, but they are short so it doesn't take too much wind out of me.

I think crossfit is something I'm going to be doing a lot in the near future.

Dallas Personal Training said...

Do you think it would be good for me, i dont have any idea about burning fat's and build muscle.some program will take you to nowhere like you said.i dont want to have big muscle, just fit.any idea would help

Adrian said...

I've been doing a similar kind of training myself on and off for about a year.

I have to say that the combination of HIIT Cardio and resistance training works really well.

I'd recommend it for anyone who's interested in incorporating weight training into their workout routine, burning fat and getting toned.

Tom J said...

I must start again but get into it. I started 3 times to at gym, but 3 times i had left the gym because of lots of motives or don't have time. But from now on i will go at the gym and get real, because this is real and healthy workout. Thanks for the tips and the article it was very usefull.

nice blog and very informative on fitness exercise....awesome.

Build Muscle Fast said...

Finally, a credible post about combining cardio and weightlifting. You mention crossfit not being for bodybuilders but you can tone down the intensity and still get some great results negating the need for hours of cardio. I've found supersetting my exercises with 90 seconds between supersets.

An alternative which has also worked for me is high intensity training - doing a full body workout (approximately 8 exercises) with no rest, then taking a 3 minute reset and repeating the full body workout. Really helped me blast through some plateaus.

Thanks for the tips. I need to gain weight to build muscle, but I guess that's better than having to lose it!

Ksmoove2 said...

That's a crazy workout!! I'm not really into the toning muscle type workouts though. I'm more into the bodybuilding workouts (really heavy weight 10-12 reps)

Jay said...

i think one of the most important points is the effore you put into training when your at the gym and the extent you wish to go to until you give up. here are a few more tips that helped: http://www.fuiszreport.com/

Eating the right foods can help your body build muscle. But you can't just eat the right foods. Consuming plenty of protein and carbohydrates without exercise will have the reverse effect, and you're going to build fat, not muscle.

When someone asks me about my body i just have one answer for it. Eat healthy, live healthy. Efforts are the results of every success. And also one must take prohormone supplement for rapid results.
