Hey all, I'm a newbie and was wondering about mixing CF training with sprint training (i.e. 100, 200, 400, hurdles). Instinctively, it seems that the CF approach would aid sprinters, especially 200, 400 and 400 hurdlers) to increase their anaerobic capacity. Also, it seems that CF training would aid in recovery between rounds during major championships. Any thoughts greatly appreciated. Also, I've been looking for a while for an approach to fitness that brought everything together and I found it here. Hopefully, I'll get the chance to meet other CFers in the near future. Peace.

CF is of huge benifit to sprinters. Actually with learning some technique many CrossFitters are superb sprinters.
