World-Class Fitness in 100 Words (and 20 Links)

September 13, 2011 |  by  |  Fitness

What are our bodies capable of? What is the direct path toward achieving our best body and maximizing our athletic potential?

Greg Glassman, one of the founders of Crossfit, gave a shot at penning that answer in 100 words. It’s a great summary, that deserves to be read and reread, broken down for greater understanding and pondered. We’ve made things interesting by interpreting the words into 20 pretty cool examples.

Read the post and check out the links for greater understanding.

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.

Greg Glassman, co-founder of Crossfit

My goal is to eat the most nutrition dense food possible within a busy schedule and then teach YOU how to do it too.


  1. What an awesome way to explain this-now I know evrintheyg!

  2. Klart att man måste ha fikaraster. Hörde på radion att stockholmarna var sämst på detta. Men att man kommit fram till att bäst var medelålders/äldre män boende i Norrland. Sämst unga människor.De vet inte vad de går miste om. Tror att jobbet är så himla viktigt. Småpratet kolleger emellan ger mängder av information som man inte tänker på just då.

  3. ‘I couldn’t find a spot for Astudillo, although he is inriguing’….last night, (745PM posting) you had him on your list, why now the change? I personally like the fact he rarely swings and misses.

  4. With high rental returns on offer and good prospects for capital growth, many more overseas nationals see now as a great time to secure a Florida real estate investment, which explain why sales are rapidly increasing statewide.

  5. Sólo quiero decir lo que es un gran blog ha llegado hasta aquí! He estado alrededor durante bastante tiempo, pero finalmente decidió mostrar mi aprecio por vuestro trabajo! Pulgar hacia arriba, y mantenerlo en marcha!

  6. Congratulations Hastings, All of you! Vera, you’re going to LOVE being a part of that family. God, Thank You for making all of this possible for all of them and God, please hold Vera’s grandmother extra tight, it took a strong heart for her to follow you in this. Amen.I’m off to finish reading the logs, we’re just back from Germany and almost NO internet access (little towns)…so much to catch up on!Much love to all of you. Have a safe flight home.Jackie for the Peraza Family
