The barbells - Deepstash

The barbells

Bars come in a variety of weights, from 15 to 45 pounds, and those giant plates are available in sizes going down to 10 pounds. 

That means the barbell has about the same shape and size no matter how heavy it is.

Crossfit

Crossfit’s workouts can include powerlifting; gymnastics and calisthenic type activities like ring pull-ups and rope climbing; and often cardio in the form of running, cycling, or rowing. You can also expect stretches, push-ups, and a lot of other stuff.

A class will be centered around a WOD, or workout of the day. You will do a small subset of the above, and the goal could be improving your deadlift, or maybe a metabolic conditioning workout.

Nobody expects you to Rx a workout anytime soon. Even at a box full of experienced athletes, very few people are doing the prescribed (Rx) weights or moves every time.

Those numbers are a goal to work up to.

You can get a training session before starting classes. This will depend on your gym (your box) but some offer a free session to teach the techniques.

Boxes also let you sign up for a series of beginner-specific classes before you jump in with everybody else.

CrossFit definition

It's a training philosophy that coaches people of all shapes and sizes to improve their physical well-being and cardiovascular fitness through varied and challenging workouts.

Each day, the workout will test a different part of your functional strength or conditioning, not specializing in one particular thing, but rather with the goal of building a body that’s capable of practically anything and everything.

Crossfit is hardcore

Anyone can do it, but not everyone should do it.

The heart-pounding workouts, sense of community, and amazing results are what keep people coming back for more, but you can't truly know if it's right for you until you give it a go and see for yourself.

Your goals with home exercising

Consider what you're trying to achieve.

  • If your goal is general health and well-being, a pleasant stroll is sufficient.
  • If you want to lift heavy weights, there isn't a minimalist setup that can replicate a barbell. While a barbell and weight plates would let you do almost everything, you need quite a bit of room to use them, ideally an outdoor area or a garage.
