Crossfit SVG is a branded system of physical training. It promotes both as a physical exercise system and as a competitive sport. Crossfit training includes elements of high intensity interval training, weightlifting, pliometrics, powerlifting, gymnastics, weightlifting, weightlifting, strongman’s exercises, running and others. Crossfit is practiced by members of more than 13 thousand specialized gyms, about half of which are in the United States, as well as individually as part of the so-called “training of the day”.
Crossfit SVG Overview
Crossfit SVG is a program of strength and endurance exercises consisting mainly of aerobic exercises, gymnastics (exercises with body weight) and weightlifting. CrossFit Inc. describes its program as “constantly varying functional movements performed with high intensity in different time intervals and modal domains” in order to increase training. Training is defined as “the potential to work in different time intervals and modal domains”. An hour-long session in an affiliated gym, or “boxing”, usually includes a warm-up session, a skills development segment, a high-intensity “training of the day” (WOD), and individual or group stretch marks. In some gyms, the training of the day is preceded by a power development exercise. Based on the results of each WOD, assessments are made to stimulate competition and track individual progress. Some affiliated halls offer additional classes, such as Olympic weightlifting.
Crossfit rooms use equipment from a wide variety of disciplines, including bars, dumbbells, gymnastics rings, bars, ropes, weights, medical balls, plioboxes, espander, rowing machines, air bikes and various mats. Crossfit is aimed at “constantly changing, high-intensity, functional movements”, relying on such disciplines and exercises as gymnastics, weightlifting, powerlifting, strongman exercises, pliometrics, exercises with body weight (berpi is the most famous exercise with body weight in crossfit), rowing on specialized simulators, aerobic exercises, running and swimming.
The Crossfit program is decentralized, and its overall methodology is used by thousands of private affiliated halls, fire departments, law enforcement agencies and military organizations, including the Danish Royal Life Guard, as well as some American and Canadian physical education teachers, sports teams from schools and colleges, and the Miami Marlins baseball club.
Crossfit is not a specialized fitness program, but a deliberate attempt to optimize physical capabilities in each of the 10 fitness domains, says founder Greg Glassmann. These modal fitness domains are: cardiovascular and respiratory endurance; muscle endurance; strength; flexibility; power; speed; coordination; agility; balance; accuracy.
Crossfit is intended for both men and women, and statistical analysis shows that men and women are almost equally divided among those involved in crossfire.
