I was impressed when reading the strong performances of Matt G. In his muscle up video he looks like a very balanced athlete. When I read Art De Vany's "Evolutionary Fitness", I decided to try something CrossFit alike myself - a BW chipper variation:


Both bouts timed:

10 Dips
10 Pullups
10 Box jumps
20 Squats
~500 meter sprint


extended rest, then


15 Hindu pushups
20 Lunges
~200 seter sprint


I felt this was a very intense and surprising complete workout. Actually, when doing Crossfit, you make everything you do a sprint.

I'll continue trying this and will report on my improvements in volley and beach volleyball.

Igor

In CF the most seemingly unrelated activites will make you kick *** at others.

Just keep mixing things up and doing them hard and quick - you'll improve at everything!
