CrossFit combines the best of strength, speed, and endurance. Coach Greg Glassman has talked about how having a developed strength base will help you perform better in CrossFit training.

When you are stronger, it makes most all the exercises we do, EASIER. Yes, easier. Becoming stronger helps increase your metabolic conditioning; it helps your pullups, running, burpees, jumping, etc…

What holds people back from achieving their goals is, Strength training. What helps the most when you hit a plateau in your training is, Strength training.

The CrossFit To+al is the sum of the best of three attempts at the squat, the press, and the deadlift, the three most effective lifts in existence for developing and testing functional strength.

Done correctly, the CrossFit Total is perhaps our best tool for telling us the things we need to work on to improve overall strength.

Look out for the next time we do a CrossFit Total workout. We will actually let you know when we are going to do it ahead of time. So when you see it make sure you get it done.
