CROSSFIT

CROSSFIT The average perception of a muscular man is one who lifts heavy weights at the gym 4 to 5 times week. He fistpumps his training partner after hitting his new personal-best and indulges on proteins and supplements more than water and food. So is that how males get muscular? Well not exactly;. Don’t be fooled, it’s not the only way.

People often laugh at me for my absurd choice in music and my unique taste in romantic comedies. For some reason, it’s abnormal for a guy to sit back and enjoy a love story and fall asleep to Celine Dion on a Saturday night. Have you ever wondered why? I can tell you why, because society says so. We read articles on the internet and brainless posts on Facebook that force us to think a way that we don’t have to. Men should be good at ‘handyman’ activities around the house and females should have a solid understanding of fashion. FEBRUARY 2015

Have you heard of CrossFit? CrossFit has a poor reputation in the body building fields, and to be honest, I’m not quite sure why. So what exactly is CrossFit? It’s a vigorous workout that combines weight training, aerobics and gymnastics all in one so that you become fit in every area of your game – not just one. CrossFit focuses on all aspects of the human body, improving areas evenly to give you a well-rounded physique and hopefully make you capable of doing whatever activity life throws at you. This differs from weight training, which simply aims to build muscle in areas you focus on. It’s also different from sprint training, which focuses on the physics of running from one point to another in the shortest possible time.
