There is no mistaken that strength is the pillar of most actions and the foundation of every single act such as hitting mammoth 300 yards on your favorite golf course. Strength training is not just about building muscle, but enables you to lose weight faster, hit harder and run faster.
There is a way to cut through the usual BS associated with standard muscle building programs and join forces with guys like Evan Pflock (Evan’s new site), who is involved with CrossFit training.
Everybody’s busy, right? Who really tells another person how many hours they work per week or what time they get up in the morning. Time is in short supply. What we all need is a training program that we can stick to without too many workouts to perform or to take a lot of our time.
Crossfit.com is such as program. Once you afford yourself the privilege of witnessing a training program at your nearest CrossFit Affiliate facility, you’ll be hooked and want to join on the spot. That we can guarantee you. What is really sweet about training this way is that you do not waste any time getting going, and you are given 4 to 6 weeks basic training at some boxes to get used to performing exercises in a different way.
Your coach is with you all the way, and you have the support of your fellow trainees who egg you on to greater results every single time. One coach takes care of 12 people, two coaches will look after 24 people, and once the group reaches a maximum of 36 people, you will have three coaches standing by.
Every CrossFit facility has their rules of conduct posted on a wall somewhere. These rules are in part responsible for the resounding success of CrossFit facilities on a global scale. Thanks to the staff and fellow teammates upholding the philosophy associated with anything to do with CrossFit.
Welcome to Team CrossFit and Strength Exercise Programs
Once you join a CrossFit gym, you will soon experience an induction program that will teach you all the fundamentals associated with this superb and one of a kind training regime. Best of all, there are only a few essentials you need to keep in mind to make it through to a better you.
Some of these are common sense, such as fostering a good relationship with staff, and the outside world as a whole. Your coach will soon brief you on the various levels that generally consist of level one, two, three and Ninja level or Level 4.
You’ll soon enough realize that it isn’t just any training facility. Most Crossfitters find it to be a team approach to exercise, fitness, mobility, and good health. It is over here that you will encounter some of the best trainers, nutritionists, physical therapists around the U.S.
Training is the Name of the CrossFit Game
Extensive research, study and long hours of hard work went into establishing the training programs to ensure only the best WODs (Workout of the Day) is handed to you. We have yet to come across a trainee who can say they are bored. One such person has already been at it for three months and stated that not one single exercise routine was ever the same.
Most exercise routines start with a warm up session, then skill specific work or strength building to be followed by a group session involving timed training that runs for 20 minutes total. It ends with a 400-meter run and some warm-down exercises.
What are the Best Strength Building Exercises?
The shoulder press, bench press, deadlift and the squat are among the best strength building exercises, without a doubt. Rows and Chin ups are great too, but they shouldn’t be the key focus of your workout.
Remember this too that the Barbell is King, the dumbbell is queen, and any other equipment is regarded as the court jester as it has its place but is not as essential. It is recommended you start with the heaviest or most challenging exercises first, involving barbells while you are still fresh. Once you have it out of the way, you can concentrate on dumbbell and bodyweight training.
When you are involved in group training, you will do as many reps of any given exercise until the minute on the clock above you is up after which you will alternate with the rest of the group to perform another activity that is also timed for a minute. The group will repeat the process until the overall time given is up. In most cases it will be 20 to 30 minutes.
