Let’s take a look at the three vehicles above and compare them as if they were athletes.
To the far left is a dump truck. Compared to most vehicles (or athletes), they’re pretty slow. They can’t go as far as most without having to fuel up. But they can carry tons of weight and pull just about anything you attach to them. This is similar to your typical strongman athlete or football lineman. In the middle is a hybrid car. They’re characterized by their ability to keep going for long distances. Though some can get up and go, most aren’t particularly known for their top end speed and will lose they’re definitive property once you start adding weight to the equation. I would imagine this is similar to your endurance athlete — your ultra marathoner or triathlete. On the far right is your super sports car. They get off the line quickly and are hard to catch. But, they consume fuel faster than the dump truck and can’t carry a lot. Here’s your sprinter.
Our goal in CrossFit is to take the best attributes from the athletic world to create the most well rounded athletes possible. We want to increase your ability to more large weight long distances quickly.
I would love some feedback — What vehicle would best describe you as an athlete (currently) and what do you aspire to be?
This Saturday, Coach Jason will be holding a Powerlifting Clinic on the Sumo Deadlift, along with some accessory movements to help you pull the most weight off of the ground. Click the link below to sign up (Free for Gold Members, $20 for non-Gold).
