Before Crossfit proved that it’s workout is indeed effective, I was working out at the gym for years while listening to The Mission Station. My favorite song while working out was too hot by Luke Combs, which I believe got me through all of my workouts. Later on in life, however, the party would lose its appeal so I took it easy on myself and rested more than I had in awhile. Does this sound familiar? Regardless of how much rest you decide to take each week, there are certain things you should do that will get you into better shape right off the bat! Pay attention to these health tips-you might just find something new that works for you!
#1 Condition your feet. You know what most people struggle with when they start a fitness journey? Their shoes! How many times have we walked into a store and fallen in love with a pair of shoes only to go home and realize they rub against our toes or too big after wearing them once? If you buy high tops or sneakers from one brand, they won’t hurt your skin but if you wear Nike Air Maxes everyday then soon your skin is going to look awful because it can’t breathe properly under those closed sneakers. Similar goes for tube socks…basically any type of sock really unless it says barefoot approved! Just remember: conditioner every time before going crazy in any shoe or sneaker type project aka buying a new pair or two during spring
Crossfit: Remember What You Have Learned; Apply What You Know?
Human beings were designed to run and jump, climb trees and swim. All of us can benefit greatly from more exercise such as running sprints or rowing machines, but we also need more specialized exercises that strengthen the muscle groups responsible for balancing on one leg and pulling yourself up with your arms. We live in a body that is weak and prone to injury if we do not train it properly: Weighing 400 pounds (180kg), I was determined to start back on the road to fitness; slowly at first, but gradually growing more powerful each day! During my training sessions at CrossFit Detroit, I quickly learned many core CrossFit Skills such as: Squats – push hips back while keeping legs straight Pull-ups – grip the bar with palms facing out overhead Power Cleans – pull yourself up using your entire body through your legs Olympic Squat Thrusts – butterfly start position Bent over Rows – pronated hands behind you head keeping shoulders down Chest Presses – curl chest forward toward thighs Pulldowns – grip bar with palms facing out downward Chin Ups – always use chin above bar Elbows Out Dumbbell Snatch Pullover Punches – hold dumbbell up high so it points toward ceiling Lunges – lunge over feet keeping front knee cocked & arm out wide Deadlifts – stand next to bar & bend knees slightly lifting upper body off ground Romanian Deadlifts- kneel behind beginning position Leg Extensions Machine Pulses/Leg Curls Machine
