CrossFit – one of the hardest workouts in the world!
CrossFit - one of the hardest workouts in the world!
You have probably already heard about the trending sports called “CrossFit”. But it is way more than just a new trend towards functional training!
One thing is clear: CrossFit pushes you to your limit! In this article, you will find out what it actually is and why you should definitely try it out!
What is CrossFit?
In fact, the term CrossFit actually refers to the name of a brand, which was developed by the Americans Greg and Lauren Glassmann.
Broadly put, it describes a certain lifestyle characterized by intense and effective exercises and healthy nutrition. Athletes do not focus on a specific muscle group, but train the entire body. This means that unlike regular strength training, the focus is on functional training, thus training all the different muscle groups at once.
What makes CrossFit special?
CrossFit brings different people from all over the world and from all fitness levels together. Not only does CrossFit allow you to compete with other athletes from all over the world due to standardized workouts, but it is also easy to scale a workout to your needs, thus allowing people from all levels to work out together.
Another special aspect of CrossFit training are the so-called WODs (“Workout of the Day”). These workouts change every day and can be extremely intense and exhausting.
What does a CrossFit session consist of?
A CrossFit session usually takes about 1h and includes the following parts:
Warming up increases your heart rate and prepares your muscles for the upcoming workout.
Workout of the day
After the warm-up follows the workout of the day (WOD).
At the end of the workout, the muscles are stretched to prevent muscle soreness and damage as well as it helps to regulate your heart rate.
Types of Crossfit Training
AMRAP (As Many Rounds/Reps As Possible) Workout
The goal is to complete as many rounds/reps as possible in the given time frame.
Workout for Time
The goal is to complete the workout as fast as possible. Don’t forget to write down your time once finished as this type of workout makes it easy to measure your progress.

This involves completing a certain number of reps of an exercise every minute. The number of minutes is set in advance.
