The CrossFit Game Created by Coach Greg Glassman. You probably won’t become the strongest person on the planet with CrossFit Game, but you will become stronger, faster, and able to do more work across various disciplines.
If you try a class, you’ll do a workout of the day (WOD), which will more than likely include a met-con (metabolic conditioning session). In a met-con, you’ll try to get as many rounds or reps as you can in a given amount of time. The movements, rounds, reps, and other details always vary, so you never know what to expect. One day you could run 400s and do pull-ups, and the next day you could be doing kettlebell swings, burpees, and box jumps.
But CrossFit Game goes beyond that. Good boxes will invest time to coach you how to do technical compound lifts and Olympic lifts, skills like double-unders and kipping pull-ups, and even running and rowing techniques.
Another great thing about CrossFit workouts is that they don’t require a special gym or coach. Marcus Hendren, for example, started his CrossFit journey with the ultra-tough workout “Lumberjack 20.” “I was looking for another outlet to compete,” says the ex-collegiate football player. “I’d always loved working out and heard about CrossFit, so I decided to give it a try.”
definition of CrossFit from the official site:
CrossFit is a training program that builds strength and conditioning through extremely varied and challenging workouts. CrossFit Game is extremely different from a commercial gym…and not just because you won’t find any ellipticals, weight machines, or Zumba.
