What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a grassroots fitness movement based out of Santa Cruz, California. It is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist. The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.

Quote of the Day:  "The only thing that you deserve is what you earn." - Tom Brands

Discussion:  A "cherry picker" is an athlete that picks and chooses the WODs that they attend based upon the things that they like/enjoy doing.  How does this affect their development as an athlete based on our definition of fitness?  Are you guilty of being a "cherry picker"?

i am guilty of this with double unders lately. however, when they come up in a wod i just go home and practice them for an hour that day. i dont want to scare michelle with any more double under related tantrums. once i master them i will make my return to double under wods. only way i'll get better at them.

Sometimes. I've been better about it lately. Mostly, because I no longer check the wod the night before.

With the exception of Jordan and his comment above, I'll say what I've said for the last two years: the hardest part of CrossFit is checking your ego at the door. If you can get past the ego part, then everything else is easy. After watching a lot of athletes come and go (and avoiding rope climbs on more than one occasion), I think the ones that make the most improvement are the ones that don't look at the WODs before they show up. They just show up and compete no matter what. Does this qualify me as a Zen master?

The jumping motion of the double unders angers the Bakers cyst I have squatting in the back of my leg. I try to avoid those days.

I don't cherry pick but, if I did I'd skip rowing WODs (everyone was in the boat-house yesterday while I was still trying to find my paddles), I'd avoid lifting anything heavy over my head and I'd make sure Mo wasn't there bc she makes me lift heavy stuff.

I am guilty of this, but only on weekends when I try to decide if I want to be out all night or get up early.
