  • Started crossfit today

    Today was my first taste of crossfit. Good and tiring! I think 5 days a week of this stuff and I'll blow through the PT at the academy!

    It was great, nice change of pace from boring runs or weight lifting.

    Feels like it should tone me up pretty well and sky rocket my ability.

      It helps all of that. It is important to have quality trainers to help you along. There are some exercises that CAN injure you if done improperly. My department has its own Crossfit gym with VERY good instructors. It is open to us as well as our city fire dept. We have to go through a month long (12 1-hr long sessions) "On Ramp" class that deals with the basic movements as well good nutrition before you can use the gym at your convenience. They are in the middle of the 3rd On Ramp and they still have to turn people away, it is that popular. They put about 150 people through each On Ramp. It is difficult but fun at the same time. I love it. I've been doing it for about 2 months now. Is it the "end all" in work outs? No, but I have not seen so many officers getting off their duffs and get moving so it that is priceless. Here is our web site.

          Well said, and I agree 100%. Anything that gets them exercising is great.

            I find Crossfit highly effective because I feel it best simulates how the body will react in a fight. Mixing in heavy weights with speed hit all aspects of "combat fitness".

            When I have had physical altercations on the road, I find that the perp is 100% gassed before I even feel warmed up. That's the point

              I live by Crossfit. I follow the Crossfit.com site and crossfitendurance.com sites and follow their WOTD. I try to follow these strictly and not deviate, but sometimes I have to sub exercises as I don't have the exact equipment.

              I like XFit as it works the entire body on about every occasion. Endurance, strength, stability, and even focus. Its tough, but it works. It also works well into my schedule as most of the WOTD's don't take a great deal of time.

              Good look on your start FutureTrooper and stick with it, the results will come. Also, you can't top the look on guys faces when your doing handstand pushups in the gym. It's classic.

                You know it's just WOD right? Not WOTD.

                  Yeah, I guess I was just in a hurry typing and made a full acronym out of it.

                        Let us know how you like fight gone bad.

                        We just did one yesterday in our academy that...well it sucked bad. But man was it a good one!

                        We had 4 stations set up. The stations were-punching bag, air squats, push ups and lastly knees to elbows. All repetitions were recorded except punches thrown. We had to do 8 sets at each station, each set lasted for 20secs and after the 20secs we got a 10sec "break." After the 8 rds of whichever station you started at you'd get a min to get ready for the next station and you'd go through the whole process again until you've done each station. We've done some tough workouts thus far and this one was surely one of the toughest, but very very rewarding.

                          Thats simply a tabata drill. Good stuff.
                          Sounds like the 4 corners drill that we did in the academy. It was different strikes at each station though, not pushups and such. It was also 30 seconds and no rest between except we had to crawl from station to station as "rest."
