a backissue of the Crossfit Journal (April 2003) has a feature article entitled "A Better Warmup" provides the detailed answer to your question.

The CF warm-up:
Elevates Body Temperature
Elevate Cardiorespiratory Rate
Incorporates Stretching
Develops Critical Functions/Movements
Works the Whole Body
Prepares for Rigorous Athletic Movements

It's a great issue.

Thanks All. I have been doing the crossfit workouts for a little over a week and am quickly becoming a believer. It is great to be challenged by workouts every day instead of the same old weight training exercises.

The CrossFit warm up, for me, isn't something entirely knew as far as movements. But as far as the theory behind the warm up, it was new to me and it makes sense for what I was doing over 10 yrs ago, which I ridiculously stopped doing 3 yrs ago and started back up again using CrossFit's version.

I do it as a circuit. The dip & pull ups station is about a 20 second walk from the weight room at the fire station I work at. Other members at the firehouse didn't want the homemade dip & pull up station in the weight room so I moved it to a space on our apparatus floor. SO I use the walk to and from each area as rest time. Which doesn't bother me much because when doing the lunge/samson stretch I have another minute of rest when doing both legs.

About ignoring conventional fitness thinking...most times that's the only way to make certain things work for you- by breaking the rules.
