World-Class Fitness in 100 Words

This is from Coach Glassman and the CrossFit website. Follow this and you will be well on your way toward elite fitness. Do not minimize the importance of a good nutrition program. If you are working hard but your results are lacking - examine your diet. It probably is not adequate for elite athletic performance.

Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.
