CrossFit

Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.
~Greg Glassman

In short, a CrossFit trainee strives to develop capacity in ALL of these general physical skills: Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance, Accuracy, AND Cardiovascular Endurance. This is accomplished by avoiding specialization and embracing generalization. A week of CrossFit training includes workouts derived from gymnastics, weightlifting, powerlifting, rowing, and track and field. You can expect to lift, throw, sprint, balance, pull, push, jump, lunge, and more. WOD stands for Workout of Day.
