The CrossFit Games is the ultimate test of human strength, while also emphasizing an innovative and, some say controversial, format that challenges competitors with a broad range of sporting challenges. During competition athletes perform several sanctioned exercises back to back without time limit or rest in order to earn points that are accumulated for later use over many heats. https://www.womansday.com/community/groups/crossfit-games-2017/?page=1576#comment-72891
It seems incredible to be talking about summer camp here in Charleston, given how chilly it was last night at this time last year when we got home from the first day of orientation…but hope abounds! We’ll do our best not to take these temps as reality (even though sometimes exact dates aren’t very important) and focus on what will make this summercamp an awesome one instead: #TGIF

How Much Weight Should I Expect To Lose Doing Crossfit?
How much weight you lose doing CrossFit is dependent on your starting point and how long you’ve been training. If you haven’t been active in the past three months or if your starting point is worse than average, then expect to drop a lot of weight right off the bat and see how it feels. Once weight loss becomes routine and your body adapts to low intensity exercise with large muscle groups, progress slows significantly. This is where we talk about “reaching a plateau,” which can happen for anyone who does an exercise routine consistently enough over time (between 0 – 3 years). The most important thing to remember here is that gaining fat isn’t healthy; losing fat means you are burning more calories than you need with every workout and thus burning fat…even if that doesn’t mean losing actual pounds! One of Coach Short’s Shortcuts is “Do cardio 4x per week.” Just because cardio takes longer than lifting weights doesn’t mean its not as effective! #Crossfit #CrossfitJourney #CardioSideEffects #SFChix
|Full Games|Motivation|Group Classes|CrossFit Competition|Results If you want to become a true CrossFit athlete, you have to cross the eight basic movements, also known as the CrossFit benchmark. These are the foundational movements used in all CrossFit workouts. All other skills and techniques will depend on these eight basic exercises to work properly. Here is a brief description of each exercise: Squat – The squat is considered by many to be one of many world’s best strengthening and conditioning exercises. It may not look like much from an aesthetic point-of-view, but it will build plenty of muscle mass due to its vast number of stabilizing muscles that need to be activated when performing this movement both in the bottom position and when hiking up from the bottom too quickly without using momentum. The squat also works your core strength which can place heavy demands on your spine if performed incorrectly or in high volume over a long period of time. Kipping/Hang Squat – Handles exactly what it sounds like — ‘kipping’ means doing a sloppy ‘dip’, while ‘hang’ means holding at chest level with arms fully extended for one rep before lowering back down again–hand under knees here has been shown to put less stress on your shoulders than hands behind knees do during proper form. This may be good enough for some veterans who just love their workout filled with kips, but newcomers should stick with the standard hanging bar overhead squatting version, else
