Who does it? Do you do MP or crossfit football or strength bias? how many times a week? how long have you been doing it?
I'm doing crossfit football, for the time being. I think next year I'm gonna hit a hybrid of crossfit endurance and football or something similar. I do 3-1-2-1, but I don't hesitate to take extra days off if I need them. I eat mostly primal, don't worry too much about legumes, indulge maybe a bit too much on sweets (which I am working on), and often eat rice.
Uhhh. So, yeah..
Not quite sure what you mean by
but I crossfit.

Thats how I found paleo and then primal. I'm going whole 30 right now and we'll see how it goes.
My partner is a certified 1 trainer and assigns me workouts when I can fit them into my schedule. I usually aim for about 4 times a week. And a bit over a year and a half (I think); I originally started training for powerlifting but she corrupted me.
I crossfit at a local box 5-6 days a week. I <3 crossfit. It has changed my life.
I crossfit 4-5 times a week with strength 3 times a week as im aiming to compete =]
make sure your eating enough to cover what you burn with crossfit cause it can be hard..
i fnd myself drinking coconut milk stright at times to get the fat! lol =]
I Crossfit in my garage. Hubby and I built a full CF area in the garage last year. Have to admit I rarely do an actual CF workout anymore, maybe 1 - 2x a week. I incorporate CF-style workouts into a kickboxing class I teach 3x a week though. We have about 30 min. of kickboxing and a 15 minute CF-style WOD. I took all my kettlebells, medballs, boxes, jumpropes, etc. into the dojo to use in the class. I still have the rower and weights at home. Also swim and trail run. Triathlon train in the summer months.
Started doing mainpage WOD's last January. It taught me A LOT and got me to this site. Since then I've decided I don't care to be an elite athlete but I want to be able to run a 10k at the drop of a hat and also Deadlift (300), Squat (275), Military Press (175), and Bench (250).
So now I run once every week. Practice those four lifts + pullups, goodmornings & planks. And participate in sports as often as possible.
As soon as I'm happy with those four lifts I'll probably start picking up some more gymnastics & oly lifts
i started doing crossfit around 3 - 4 weeks ago. love the training method and im seeing improvements across the board. i switched onto paleo however before starting crossfit, and thats where ive seen the biggest improvements....
i would encourage anyone thinking about giving crossfit a go, to just get in there...
you will be worked hard - but its worth it
Hey I'm a CrossFit L1 instructor (who isn't these days!), and yeah I CrossFit, probably 4-5 times a week, using kettlebells and bodyweight exercises as my main tools - I think CrossFit fits in well with a primal lifestyle, though it is clearly not for everybody.
If you're going to give it a go, wade in slowly, try find a box that'll break you in with a fundamentals course for the first 2-4 weeks, the longer the better to be honest as you don't want to get injured.
Agreed! Its IMPOSSIBLE to wade into Crossfit too slowly. That's the only problem I have with the program. There is SO much out there people go way to fast way to quickly. I did, but was fortunate enough to not hurt myself more than tweaking a few muscles that only took a week or so to recover.
