The many faces of CrossFit

The many faces of CrossFit

Practice – it’s one of the things that sets us apart from the rest of the fitness world. Think of a typical Globo Gym – ever see someone there “practicing?” The context for practice in a fitness gym is noticeably absent. What is there to practice? Bicep curls? Crunches? Lateral raises?

In the pictures below, Mike is grimacing from both the physical difficulty of a hollow rock, and the difficulty of holding his torso in the “hollow” position (think rounded back). To maintain “hollow” while lying supine or prone, standing up, holding a handstand, or while moving takes practice – it also takes training, because is damn hard. It requires body awareness, mental focus, coordination, concentration, and a rock solid core. Practice makes perfect – and in our case it makes workouts stimulating, challenging, and fun. Forget about it if you’re planning on leaving your brain at home…
