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, 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." (Reprinted from Crossfit)

I'm now in my 3rd week of crossfit workouts. I'm working to integrate them with swimming training to make me a stronger & faster swimmer and overall fitness example.

Enjoy your intense workouts while you can, Dolly. When kiddoes arrive, you are scarfing down ham and cheese sandwiches and pudding cups while you make sure your curious baby doesn't pull the plates off the table, and you'll be doing GREAT to take a 30 minute walk pushing the stroller every morning...
