Defining CrossFit, Part 2: Intensity
In Part-2 ️of CrossFit.com’s 3-part series called “Defining CrossFit”, they explore the second defining characteristic of the CrossFit prescription, Intensity.
Intensity is the thing that tends to create one the biggest stigmas about CrossFit; that it’s too intense for all but the most elite athletes. However, as the article points out, “The level of intensity at which a person works needs to be appropriate relative to their physical and psychological tolerances. That is, the intensity at which someone should work is always and only relative to that individual.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Without a certain level of intensity relative to your fitness level there can be no change in your body. “If you want to increase muscle mass, decrease body fat, increase bone density, or insulin sensitivity — if you want to look better, feel better, work better, sleep better, play better — intensity will get you there.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don’t be intimidated by the inclusion of (relative) intensity in our workouts or the relatively complex calculation to measure it; simply know that following the daily programming will help you attain changes in your body because of it. We’ll do the rest! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ready to learn more and talk to one of our expert Coaches about how we can help you achieve your fitness goals? Book your No-Sweat Intro direct from our website.
