So I hope you did the Base Line Test! If you want to know if you did good comment, and I will get back to it and let you know if you did well. We will always be building on that base line, but be developing a lot of form first before we get to the lifts, but it is important we establish your 1 round maximum rep so we can apply this to power lifting and olympic weightlifting programs.
So more about me, I started out doing CrossFit main page and CrossFit endurance with NO coaching! I developed bad habits in my form and it is much harder to break them now, than it would have been to develop them in the first place. If you DO NOT know how to do an exercise, then DON’T do it. You can and will hurt yourself. Please do whatever you need to do to either receive coaching or develop your form before getting yourself hurt.
First Actual Workout
Well here we go with the first work out to be posted on the site.
400M run or 400M row
Dynamic Range of Motion Exercises ( will post video soon)
2X 25 yard lunges
2 X 25 yard karaoke or called tapioca
2 X 25 yard burpee long jump (Do a burpee and then instead of jumping up from a static position jump as far as possible and repeat till you reach destination)
Burgerner Warm-Up ( This is an olympic lifting warm up that you must master before you even attempt to add weight. It takes two minutes to do and it’s benefits are huge. This will almost be a daily ritual as Olympic Lifts are a large portion of CrossFit and create a lot of power and strength.)
Article on the Burgerner Warm Up
Increase weight after every set. Try and establish your 1RM and right that down.
