So here it is, my debut blog for the illustrious Evolutio Avengers crew. I may or may not have called us that without their knowledge, but it seems relevant given the new Marvel movie is out. Oh, and I’m definitely the Captain America of the group - I’ll let you figure out why and who the remaining characters are. Now, if I’m being honest writing a blog is way out of my comfort zone, putting words to paper (or laptop) has never been my forte throughout school, and frankly, hasn’t improved much since. I’d much rather use my hands or pictures to express my thoughts. Anyway here goes…
Is CrossFit the Sport of Fitness? It uses high intensity workouts combined with Olympic lifting moves, strength training and gymnastics to build strength, speed, power and endurance. So does it work? Sure you may be getting stronger, and you may have cut your Fran time in half, but are you truly improving your aerobic capacity?
There are a lot of articles out there both promoting and condemning the extent of energy system crossover from training with a CrossFit style program.
So to put this uncertainty to rest, a couple of the guys from Evolutio Sports Physio are setting out to test the extent of movement and energy system transfer by entering into a 45-kilometer run through the Victorian Alpine Region.
