). I can’t begin to tell you how many people I’ve spoken to, discussing the matter with, who claim to have “invented” crossfit. When they are asked what it is about their idea that makes them believe they are the original creator of this new thing called “crossfit”, all I hear is stutter and b-s.
Knowing who really did invent this incredible workout regime has always been one of my life long goals. To track down that person would be an absolute honor, but grasping at straws did not do me any good in the end because although the founder of CrossFit® was a man named Greg Glassman, he had no formal training in exercise science or related fields — and for those reasons we will simply refer to him as “Glassman”. (There’s nothing wrong with that.) If Glassman is your name and you’re reading this then please consider yourself honored:

Greg Glassman initially joined forces with John Mathey – a member of the Navy SEALs – and together developed a comprehensive training program based on Mathey’s college times spent using Matheny’s intense conditioning regime which consisted primarily of gymnastic skills combined with the opponent work methods popularized by NFL
What If You Want To Do Something Different Than The Wod At Crossfit??
Are you trying to workout differently that the WODs at CrossFit? Are you seeking to work out in a different capacity than normal crossfit workouts? Or do you want to start this but aren’t sure exactly what it is you need to be doing for yourself and your fitness plan? Listed below are plenty of options and flexibility. If there is one thing we can promise, we can teach anyone how their body should feel when working towards proper fitness goal and if there isn’t a specific movement listed, just ask! We love performing all types of movements within our own personal training sessions. Below are some fun ways to spice up your CrossFit WODs:
20 Weightlifting Just as there are dozens of different Crossfit workouts, so there are hundreds of weightlifting programs. Most weightlifters find that the best approach is to pick one program and stick with it. Early on you may want to mix things up – particularly if you’re new – but once your fitness level has stabilized, it’s best to move only within the parameters outlined in a particular program. (Some programs include an 18-week cycle and then one more “maintenance” phase after that; others call for repeating the full cycle three times.) Your first step should be to take a look at this book’s chapters on starting strength and basic movement patterns, as well as how to build muscles (chapter 5), which describes reliable techniques for building muscle size and strength. Beyond those foundational steps, however, most regular weightlifters rely almost exclusively on a single type of program: Linear periodization. This method involves four distinct phases executed at different times during each training session: Phase 1: The Acclimation Cycle The Acclimation Phase lasts about 8–16 weeks and can be generally described as a “beginner phase” characterized by moderate weights with exercises performed only once per week or every second week. The main goal during this time is habituation, which means breaking down those bad habits related to lifting weights too heavy too quickly rather than working towards becoming both stronger
