Want to get into crossfit!

Hi all,

I am uni student in london, my friend does crossfit and said I might be able to do Linda

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps of the triplet:

Deadlift: 1 1/2 body weight 135kg
Bench press: body weight 90kg
Clean: 3/4 body weight 67.5kg

I weigh 90kg and apparently this is one of the harder workouts. Holy **** this was insane and addictive and i think im hooked. I completed it actually alright.

I can do all the workout research and think of things to do, but I am at uni so I have quite a bit of time to take advatange of.

I have no crossfit gym near me, the closest is 75 miles away! i live in the UK.

I already train in basketball, rock climbing, kayaking and powerlifting and some gymnastics.

I want to take it seriously, what kind of regime should I do, watching Rich froning he does 3 or 4 workouts a day.

How do I plan out a crossfit week? I like trainning so would easily happily do 3 a day 6 days or 7 if i need to.

I am at the moment focusing on all the lifts, kipping pullups, I can do muscle ups and overhead squat 100kg so i think i got a good basis.

My diet has always be a keto diet, I hope i can do this with crossfit?

Thanks

Jack

Re: Want to get into crossfit!

My suggestion would be to find a good CrossFit program from a reputable gym. Do not look at what essentially professional CF athletes like Rich Froning do and follow it.

A few suggestions to get you started:
- http://www.crossfitfootball.com/ (wfs)
- http://crossfitblackbox.com/ (wfs)
- http://outlawcrossfit.com/ (wfs)
- http://crossfitnewengland.com/category/wod/ (wfs)

There are tons of others, but this is a good start. Look through them, pick one, and follow it. Follow it about a week behind their schedule so that you can plan out changes to the workouts that you will have to make based on equipment that you may or may not have and lifts that you may or may not be able to do.

Following a tried and true program with good thought put behind it is always the best way to go if you're starting out training. If you try to do things yourself and wing it you'll get frustrated and fail.

Good Luck.
