Crossfit is a popular strength and conditioning program that is designed to deliver general and inclusive fitness. Its specialty is in not focusing on any specific set of skills, instead training in a broad manner that conditions the entire body. This program is utilized by military and police academies, as well as elite and professional athletes, regardless of their specific training needs because of the overall fitness it encourages.
To broaden its appeal of general fitness to a larger segment of the population, Crossfit finds its real strength in its scalability, using similar routines that can be scaled down in weight and repetitions, for a wide variety of participants. In its scalability is found the most crucial aspect of the Crossfit system...measurability. That is why Duncan Sailors, athlete and Crossfit certified trainer at Level 4 Crossfit Seattle, has developed a Crossfit training log book to help maximize workout efficiency.
There are several important features included in Sailors Crossfit training log. Crossfit is primarily based on the idea that any improvement in overall fitness demands a useful way to keep track of every aspect. Before, during and after a workout all play a huge role in an exercises effectiveness. Combine this with the added benefit of personal responsibility that keeping track of goals can provide and the use of a training log, developed by a Crossfit expert, is obvious.
Some of the most valuable features of Sailors training log:
- Time Management - Breaks down the year into Blocks, Cycles and Week by Week
- 5/3/1 Template - This is a method of weight lifting that takes your max and gives you specific weight for each lift, for each week. Sailors log will help you to understand this method and aid you in figuring out how to set it up.
