I've been around this site for a while, and to tell you the truth, the workouts seem a little odd to me. Are there any martial artists here that I can talk to?

My impression from reading the message boards for the past couple months is that their are practitioners from several martial arts (Brazilain jiu-jitsu, mixed-martial arts, capoeira (sp?), and western boxing to name a few) who use CrossFit as part of their training and who would be happy to respond to questions you may have.

Also, I was wondering if you could expand on what 'a little odd' means when it comes to describing the CrossFit workouts.

I practice Brazilian jiu jitsu, and dabble in thai boxing and boxing. What questions do you have?

I train in Taekwondo...and crossfit has made a HUGE difference in my conditioning - in particular my strength-endurance levels.

I train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and crossfit has contributed to significant improvements in my jiu jitsu related attributes. Positional dominance and escapes, submissions, take downs, etc. Also, I can now actually keep up with the young bucks (but the little bastards still don't have to warm up, stretch out, or watch their diets).

Sorry, I just checked out the new site. I'm impressed. I had even forgotten that I posted this message. I started developing some workouts, and I just decided to simply modify the workouts. So, my first workout on monday is something like this:

Medicine Ball Woodchop -
15,15,9,9,9,3,3,33
Perform 3 rounds:
Jump rop 2 minutes
Pullups 25 reps
50 glute ham situps
Tabata "bottom to bottom" squats - 3 rounds
50 regular situps

See, I like to traing about an hour a day, so I combined a couple of workouts of the day to develop a new workout. It looks good, I'll see what happens.

Parth,

If you work out at an intensity that will optimize your fitness, you will not be able to combine WOD's.

These workouts have brought the world's best athletes to the limits of their capacities.

Coach

I can assure you that what Coach says here is correct. If you do a workout of the day and then find yourself asking "what else can I do?", you simply aren't putting forth enough effort.
