i need to know what is the best pre workout powder for crossfit? i use crushed red pepper and creatine. would it be better to take some amino acids with that or should i just order it online?
Creatine does not improve performance outside of the gym. It’s like taking vitamins. You will do more if you train hard and eat right, but creatine is a supplement you can take without doing anything out of the ordinary (not even working out). Creatine boosts muscle energy and strength (which contributes to performance) and also helps build muscle over time, which improves all-around fitness and reaction time. By itself, though, this tells us nothing about our athleticism compared to someone who doesn’t use supplements at all, so there are no valid conclusions to be drawn from it one way or another.
DaveFrost I have no idea how many people actually consider “crushed red pepper” being an acceptable replacement for any supplementation that was alive before grind ’em up eggs were invented in 1905 – but then again, maybe I’m just getting old. Find Reply Cartman

7 CrossFit Tips for Beginners
by Steve Daniels at a Glance – No specific workouts. There are three parameters that you should try to achieve if you’re a beginner: Weight, intensity and volume. If at the end of the workout your workout is successful, you need not even think about what type of exercises or weights to use from now on. You will only make things worse by trying different exercises for each body part, as well as trying different weights. – No rest between sets . In beginners’ cases rest between sets is usually unnecessary – they have to recover from all those reps they just did! And too much rest encourages slothfulness and laziness which makes a trainer look like a loser – a mass monster who can’t do anything but sit on his ass doing nothing! Keep going whenever possible, every set has no reason to stop! Besides I’ve never heard anyone say “I’m tired” when being done after an intense workout with good results. Next time someone says it, punch him in the face! – The more sets , the tougher it is . In other words: go as hard as possible during each set so that the last one feels really hard (instead of two heavy ones followed by two easy ones). Try not to pause between exercises; failing this will leave your muscles extremely weak and slow building muscle strength heavily depletes them (recalibrates them), unlike hypertrophy (muscle growth.)
