Warm up Advice

Good afternoon all,

I saw the Crossfit Games this year for the first time and fell in love! I am a US Marine and I will be getting deployed soon and I am looking into doing a lot of CF while I am overseas. I am planning on doing the CFE for military Rx. 4-6 CF WOD and 3-4 Endurance WOD a week (2 of which will be with full gear).

So my question is this. Is there any certain kind of warm ups I should be doing or is it just the standard stretching and such?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Warm up Advice

Is there a HITT (High Intensity Tactical Training) Gym aboard Beaufort? The ones on Lejeune and Pendleton are incredibly well equipped and would be a great resource for you. Good luck and S/F.

Re: Warm up Advice

@Neal

Beaufort does not have a HITT but the gym does have a room meant for circuit exercises and can easily be adopted for cross fit. However I leave to Afghanistan in a few weeks so I will be making do with what I have out there. From what I have been told it should not be a big deal.

@Brian

Thank I am going to take a look at that right now.

That is a solid warm up.

I second this.

Re: Warm up Advice

After you look over the warm up, let us know what you think.

As for Afghanistan, good luck to you and stay safe!! Do you know where you'll be stationed...? I was there about 2 years ago and Crossfit had really picked up on a lot of the camps/FOBs. Kandahar has an excellent program, as does Kabul and Bagram.

Re: Warm up Advice

I will be at Camp Bastion; I have been told by those out there that there are a few good gyms on the base as well as my shop has started to acquire their own equipment. So my hopes are high, the only thing that I am worried that they will not have is the rowers and rings but I will have my wife send me out some if need be.

The warm up is def different then any one that I have done before. Looks like it will work well though and gets all parts of your body moving at once, I am figuring that I can use a 30lb ammo can while I am out there in the place of the kettle bell if need be as well so there should not be any problems there.

Re: Warm up Advice

I will most likely add technique training at the beginning or the end of this warm up. Such as overhead squats with just the bar and snatches and such. Its been a good three years cents I have done these movements so a little practice before hand could not hurt.

You're in luck then! Camp Leatherneck has a full CF facility. I was deployed there last year and they have everything you need for WODs and they program their own with 3 group sessions a day. Of course, the staff rotates so I'm not 100% on the quality nowadays. Look them up on facebook and leave a message; you can also see their WODs online.

FYI, the main gym also has a few rowers also

you'll probably want to bring your own jump rope as they get worn really quick and are generally crap.
