Top Tips For Your First Two Years of CrossFit – Tabata Times

Article from TabataTImes.com

Think back to all the mistakes you made when starting CrossFit, and all the things you know now but wish you knew back then. Here are some of the best tips from the top coaches no matter what level of CrossFitter you are; we’d like to hear your tips in the comments as well.

Tips for Every CrossFitter

These ones are from Jon Matzner, a coach at Potomac CrossFit – his 11 tips for CrossFit athletes from his Barbells and Bacon blog:

1. Breakfast is everything. If I can convince you to eat meat and eggs for breakfast, the other meals are usually OK. If you negotiate with me about having probiotic yogurt instead of meat and eggs, we’re in trouble.

2. I can get someone 70% of the way there in the Olympic lifts in about 3 hours. At that point, the limiting factor for men is usually shoulder and hip mobility. For women, it’s front squat and overhead squat strength out of the bottom.

3. If you aren’t a total idiot with what you eat, you should set a PR pretty much every time you step in the gym for the first 2 years.

4. The shorter the workout, the longer the warmup should be. You need to warm up for 35 minutes for Fran. You need to warm up for 5 minutes for Murph.
