Title of article: Understanding Crossfit

Author of article: Greg Glassman


The title of the article that I will be reviewing is “Understanding Crossfit, by Greg Glassman.  In the article Mr. Glassman explains the main concepts of Crossfit.  Crossfit is a style of exercise which focuses on physical preparedness.  It is a combination of “constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movement.”  While it tends to be highly criticized in the public eye, Crossfit has been developed with a specific methodology, theory of implementation & adaptations.

One key point from the article is that Crossfit is the need to be prepared for physical challenges that may arise & how Crossfit allows it athletes to rise to the occasion.  Another key point is the explanation of the methodology of Crossfit.  It is an evidence-based program that has been clinically tested.  A third key point is how Crossfit has the ability to increase work capacity across broad work & time modals.  

This article is relevant to the class that I missed.  It is relevant because the class I missed was an introduction to Crossfit.  This article gave a written introduction to Crossfit.  It discussed  it’s methodology, implementation & adaptations.  The article helped me to understand more deeply what was taught in class.

I intend to use what I have learned from this article by trying Crossfit.  I intend to see how Crossfit can help me with my own exercise program.  I also think that from reading this article that taking part in Crossfit may help me with my other sports.  In conclusion, this article was a very informative article about Crossfit that I intend to use in the future & apply to my own personal exercise regime.
