My personal opinion is to have the equipment you need before you start working out. This includes a minimalist weight vest or bands, an appropriately sized barbell or dumbells, enough pull up bars to go around etc. It’s always easier to get into crossfit when your potential is being put down on paper more than it is in real life. If you are just starting out then I would say that if you can do floor press with 135-155lbs then chances are that you are good to go. If not then spend some time learning how to use the equipment i.e. squat before any other thing else in Crossfit!
Crossfit Games Athlete Who Does Strictly Strenght Training?
Now you might be thinking, “I’m pretty sure no one has ever heard of Travis Williams. How did he get so far in the CrossFit Games?” And I get that too, but it is because of his strength training program! Most people who compete at the games are fans of powerlifting or Olympic lifting to build their base and aesthetics. Not Travis Williams. When he started competing in 2014 his goal was simply to drop some body fat and get leaner. And guess what happened when he started doing this! He lost about 30 pounds off his waistline while cutting out junk food and fatty foods! His initial weight before he started training for the games was 235-240lbs depending on which site you read from. Today, despite not being a very big name among athletes, Williams is able to pull up weights that most people wouldn’t even think possible when they watch him perform workouts on Instagram or Facebook videos. Now for those who don’t know much about strength training in general will definitely say “how can something like weightlifting make a person lose any type of weight? It must be exercise which causes them to burn more calories than normal right? Wrong!! Weight Training is a way to stimulate your muscles in many different ways with limited impact joints such as ankles etc… In addition, muscle contractions takes place outside of your muscles thereby burning less calories then traditional cardio exercises such as walking whose impact on your joints is constant thus leaving you
The last known survivor of the May 11, 1942 attack on Pearl Harbor is dead at age 97. She has lived in obscurity for most of her life until very recently. Her story was covered nationally by San Francisco’s ABC affiliate KGO; she was profiled for “Good Morning America”; and she made an appearance at the Hawaii Theater during one of its celebrations commemorating its 75th anniversary this year. The Tribune has extensively chronicled her life over the years with this article appearing in 2010, here in 2011, and here in 2012; after which it received overwhelming public support through letters to the editor showing great interest by Bay Area readers. The trail goes back further than that but only my current column before Thanksgiving 2014 is safely archived on Free Press Online under “February 2016 News” will be preserved there for posterity when I change my bio page again next year or shortly thereafter…
