hi everyone,
i have just finished a two week bender [celabrating finishing college], im an MMA practitioner, and was just wondering the best way to try out integrating CF WOD's into my time.

i [usually] train tuesday[boxing], wednesday[mma], thursday[muay thai] and sunday[bjj]

and i cycle a set cross country route in the morning most days...

i feel my major problems are lack of functional/joint strength and going wobbly at the end of a tough session, if u know what i mean,

any help is greatly appreciated...

Will-

Read as much of the old posts as you can...pure gold lurks there. Be on the look-out for names like Patrick Johnson, John Frankel and a host of other MMA/grapplers.

Finally: Do the WOD. Start easy...strive to FINISH the WOD and slowly increase the intensity. There are some very old posts from Frank Colis which really show a brutal schedule...check them out. Ask questions!

Welcome to Crossfit

hi,

thanx, i have been reading to the point of blindness now! good stuff!

i dont think ive even finished one yet, but then having just finished college i am in a constant drunk like state, plus im trying to save energy for my regular training.

which makes me think, should i TRY to finish them at a reasonable rate, or ACTUALLY finish them at a slow/easy one?

these seem to be my only options right now, unless i drop something else [not happening]

Just finish for now. Add weight/decrease times gradually. Walking through a Crossfit WOD is incredibly demanding. Trying to light it up can crush the unwary...as Coach has said the WOD's are designed to be tougher then flesh and blood.

Eat well, sleep a bunch, and let us know how things progress.

Is that The Cameron Earle? If so, I've seen many of his fights on tape, and it's awesome that he posts here. Talk about a bad *** jiu jitsu expert!

Besides his prowess at Jiu Jitsu, Cameron also turns a very clever phrase or two.

Check out his "personal quote" under his profile (just click on his underlined name above). If that doesn't sum up pretty much the whole essence of CrossFit in one line, I don't know what does . . .

Cameron's quote is cool. I remember reading that and thinking the same thing.
