My First beginner/intro program

Hi All,

I just wanted to share the first start up program that I wrote back in April 2009 after my level 1 cert. At the time I was teaching in a park and had only a few KB's/DB's, jump rope and a 10# Med ball.

It's amazing what you can do with so little.

I have run a handful of people through this program since then and always with good results and sometimes tailored to the specific clients needs.

Please feel free to share or use this if you see it as being useful.


Thanks,
Rich Borgatti

Goblin Squats? Goblet Squats, right?

I like it Rich. I think it's also a good way for beginners to kind of see the method behind the madness if they are interested.

Thanks Trac!
I agree that it's important to demystify the method.
CF is all about being scientific and measurable but in the beginning I couldn't figure out how someone would program the workouts. The Level 1 Cert helped answer my questions about programming but also talking to my Local affiliate (Crossfit Boston) helped a lot as well.
