As someone who travels quite a bit, and who gets to see a decent cross section of training methods and styles, I feel that I have gained a little knowledge about this subject.

This past week for me has been a reminder that CrossFit is about more than Elite Fitness. At its core, it helps regular people live better lives and through those people it also helps those who can’t help themselves. Through numerous charity events held year round by CrossFit Affiliates all over the world, fitness has become the New Ambassador for Hope.
Front and OH squats were a huge sticking point for me for the longest time. I just couldn’t do them. At first I blamed my inability to perform either on arm or back size. Then after watching videos of athletes who were much larger and more muscular accomplishing the same lifts, my theories were proven wrong.
I waited to write this post until most of you got paid. That’s right I’m asking for cash, but not for me, for kids. If your involved with CrossFit, you already know that they are having a worldwide charity event on June 9th to benefit St. Judes Children’s research hospital (More Info).
