GPP= General Physical Preparedness. In other words, the WOD's are supposed to train you for a broad variety of things that could come up in your life. It's not specific to a sport.

Re: Gpp?
Adding to that - GPP is CrossFit's raison d'etre. A lot of people do it as their only physical training, but I find this to be exhausting after a certain point. Mix it up with other sports or physical labor. The point is to make a broad variety of tasks easier to do, no matter how long you do it for.

Re: Gpp?
Andrew, excellent point. CF is a supplement to your sports training (Specialized Physical Preparation - SPP- if you will). If you are only training for the WODs (ie. CF IS your sport), I would make my SPP sessions Crossfit specific: Olympic lifting assistance exercises, gymnastics classes, technique work for running, rowing training, etc. I like to do some finishing exercises, just for fun: Sandbag walks/cleans, sledge hammer, wheel barrel, or keg lifts.
