My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit with a coach (e.g. at an affiliate)
I began CrossFit while deployed to Afghanistan last year. I was very skeptical at first but was encouraged by several squadron members who had several years of experience. They were not certified coaches but did a very good job helping out all of us who were interested. There must have been at least 20 men and 4 women who started CrossFit while I was there. It was and still is humbling but it is also exciting to get the competitive juices flowing again.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I usually only do 1 workout a day
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
I try to maintain a 3 on 1 off training schedule.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
I started CrossFit about a year ago but had to take four months off due to back fusion surgery. This was a pre-existing condition...probably from years of bad lifting technique or maybe I'm just getting old.
