Re Charge

By Rob | In Coach's Blog | on May 6, 2013

Recently I discovered that I needed some me time. With doing CrossFit for several years, owning CrossFit West Houston, teaching CrossFit, and having a spouse that works with me at CFWH, yeah I need something else to re charge the batteries. I wanted something to avoid burn out and keep things fresh and get my mind out of CrossFit West Houston 24/7.

I signed up for a once a week Boxing class at my son’s Jiu Jitsu school. Boxing isn’t new for me, just something that got set aside for other priorities. The class structure is great; work some drills and some sparring at the end, which is exactly what I was looking for. It gives me something to focus on that is just for me.

It also reminded me of Greg Glassman’s World Class Fitness in 100 words:

  • 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, press 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.

It was the last part “regularly learn and play new sports” that I neglected. Many people in CrossFit throw this last bit out or classify it as unimportant. CrossFit becomes the sport and not the training method for a sport. It becomes the end rather than a means to an end.

It can be anything, a martial art, kite boarding, skateboarding, sking, or surfing. Find something to excite the central nervous system and challenge your athleticism. Re charge your soul by learning something new.  Have you ever watched a child learn something new? They beam with pride as they celebrate the new skill, capture the excitement that excitement. Go out and learn a new sport!
