I grew up playing Soccer competitively; then played club soccer in college. I ending up tearing my ACL and looking for something different to help with rehab and found a kettlebell class which led me to CrossFit.
My Experience With CrossFit
I began CrossFit by trying it alone (without a coach)
A barbell, some dumbbells, soccer ball filled with sand, and a playground was my gym for about a year.
My Work/Rest Schedule
I usually only do 1 workout a day
I do multiple workouts in a day 1x a week
I typically rest 4 or more days per month
Increasing the volume again, keeping the my weight down for Ninja Warrior training, stretching more, and prehabbing my body.
