What Does It Take To Get To The Crossfit Games?

Is there a competitive level or are you just grinding out WODs?

“To the Crossfit Games, you have to put in work,” she said. “It takes dedication. It also takes putting my ego aside and really loving every single day of training no matter what it is. I don’t think they made an athlete for this sport. And if they did, I’m sure they would tell them to start small with something different because I do know that some people can go too far too fast with workout plans. But starting slow is key for me. One thing I remember reading about being on my way to the Games was that once you feel the burning…you’ve just crossed over into it! You must train smartly daily otherwise your body will not be able to take care of itself after 12 weeks of grueling workouts.”

“Every six weeks someone will say ‘holy crap,’ so there’s always motivation right?” Suzanne said with a laugh when asked how she stays motivated throughout her long training days. “On top of regular CrossFit classes every morning, at least two strength/conditioning workouts per week and three good meals everyday, which allow me to progress through each major phase of competition accordingly…and finally finishing Strongman competitions by completing four events; log press (70 pounds), farmer’s walk (50 pounds), deadlift (960 pounds) and tire flip (360 pounds).”

How Much Ice Cream Do Crossfit Participants Eat After A Workout?

It’s not an exact science, but we’ve come up with a rough estimate. A study in the Journal of Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise found that an average Crossfit participant would drink 18 ounces (530 ml) of water and consume about 3.5 pounds (1.6 kg) of ice cream per week on average [source: Merson]. Furthermore, Muscle & Fitness magazine reported that on average, participants eat at least three quarts (3 L) of ice cream every day [source: Kayley]. According to our rough calculations, that means they add 20 quarts (20 L) of ice cream to their diet each week! Look for ice-cream brands with added protein blends to make you feel even better after a workout. Did Leonardo Da Vinci Eat Ice Cream During Selfies? Yes! He lived from 1452 to 1519, so he was a good bit older than Crossfitters when he embarked on his peculiar diet. However, later studies suggest he probably indulged in ice cream frequently over the summer months [source: Crawford]. In fact, Italian traveler Pietro Aretino described him eating “a most delicious mixture made from ice water mixed with spices” during dinner parties at the time [source: Crawford]. So your guess is as good as ours…
