Fitness CrossFit is a line of Fitness called CrossFit.
WHAT IS CROSSFIT?CrossFit is a fitness program developed by Greg Glassman. The method is about getting fitness into a more comprehensive and evidence-based level - that is i.e. a measurable way. In Fitness Crossfit methodology it´s all about measure, observe and repeat.
CrossFit itself is defined as that which optimizes fitness that is constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity.
FITNESS CROSSFITFitness CrossFit is exercises that are regulated in how they should be performed. The exercises are all functional movements performed at a relatively high intensity. Fitness CrossFit movements involves more than one muscle group at the time, they almost involve your hole body!
Fitness CrossFit emerged from three basic categories: gymnastics, weightlifting and metabolic conditioning.
The gymnastic movements, also called the bodyweight movements, includes pullups, pushups, situps, lunges, handstand pushups and ring dips.
The weightlifting exercises include movements such as the deadlift, squat, Olympic lifts and presses.
Metabolic conditioning includes running, cycling, swimming and rowing. Including all of these different Fitness CrossFit exercises creates all-around fitness.
We now explain some of the movements more detailed.
CROSSFIT EXERCISES - BODYWEIGHT MOVEMENTSKipping Pull UpThis is a CrossFit exercise fairly unique to CrossFit. Most programs call for a strict form performing chin-ups, but Kipping Pull Up is an exercise where a great deal of the momentum, kicking, and bouncing out of the bottom, called "kipping", is used to perform as many chins as possible given a fixed time.
Ring dip exercise is a dip, performed on gymnastics rings. As with all dips, the shoulder must dip below the top of the elbow at the bottom of the dip. The elbows must also be fully extended at the top of each dip with the rings pulled in close to the body.
CROSSFIT EXERCISES - WEIGHTLIFTING MOVEMENTSDeadlift
The Deadlift is one of the most important exercises because it works all your muscles. Deadlifts also teach you to pick up an object with a straight back - which can prevent injuries from repeatedly lifting with a round lower back.
Always start with the bar on the floor. Stand with the bar above the center of your feet - your stance should be a bit more narrow than shoulder-width to give your arms room. Start by grabbing the bar overhand so your arms are vertical to the floor.
Bend through your knees until your shins hit the bar which must remain above the middle of your feet. Shoulder-blades directly over the bar.
Lift your chest without squeezing your shoulder-blades like on squats. Just put your shoulders back and down, head inline with rest of your spine.
Now - Pull! - keep the bar close to your body, roll it over your knees and thighs until your hips and knees are locked. Never lean back at the top.
CROSSFIT EXERCISES - METHBOLIC CONDITIONINGBurpees
Burpees are the ultimate full body fitness exercise. Just one simple movement allows both your strength and aerobic capacities to grow.
The burpee is a full body, strength crossfit exercise. Each repetition work your chest, abs, arms, hamstrings, front deltoids and thighs and at the same time it is an effective exercise for developing the conditioning and endurance.
