What is the CrossFit method?
The CrossFit method is to establish a hierarchy of effort and concern that builds as follows:
Nutrition – lays the molecular foundations for ﬁtness and health.
Metabolic Conditioning – builds capacity in each of three metabolic pathways, beginning with aerobic, then lactic acid, and then phosphocreatine pathways.
Gymnastics – establishes functional capacity for body control and range of motion.
Weightlifting and throwing – develop ability to control external objects and produce power.
Sport – applies ﬁtness in competitive atmosphere with more randomized movements and skill mastery
