I feel like I need to make an apology. I made a comment on facebook the other day about my being upset with Charles Barkley and him being a spokesperson for Weight Watchers. My apology is this: I was in no way trying to take any successes anyone has had if they have lost weight and improved themselves while doing Weight Watchers. I think it is great that people are willing to try almost ANYTHING hoping that it will affect a positive change in their life. Even though I am proud of those who have had their success, I am NOT proud of Charles. Crossfitting is a lifestyle. There are certain ways we eat, ways we workout, ways we think. We don't subscribe to "just eat a little bit of whatever and you'll lose weight". Im bummed Charles because I thought that you really tasted the Kool-aid. Apparently not. Here is what we live by if you need some refreshing:
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 ele- ments 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
