Life is difficult. So why make it even more difficult? In the pursuit of elite physical fitness, many people are pushing to extremes. The “Holy Grail” of physical fitness cannot be achieved by basic training and diet, but only by adapting to the highest levels of physical fitness. That is why it is so important to understand the reaction to individual training and to adjust the routine accordingly. The most difficult part is perhaps the most difficult pain, after all the sacrifices. After overcoming obstacles and breaking walls, the light at the end of the tunnel starts to brighten up. Moreover, physical elitism usually depends on program, diet, and exercise. A fitness program must be natural, effective and efficient. Diet must be almost always impeccable.
Most importantly, there are no shortcuts to replace hard work. For an elite organization such as CrossFit, whose methods are effective based on the testimonials of athletes, military, police officers and others whose lives depend on physical fitness, this definition is considered insufficient. According to the issue of CrossFit magazine, elite physical fitness in 100 words can be summed up as: “Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar. Keep your intake at a level that will support exercise, but not body fat. Practice and train the main lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, press, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climbing, push-ups, sit-ups, hand presses, pirouettes, flip flops, clefts, and handles. Cycling, running, swimming, rowing, etc. Five or six days a week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Workouts should be short and intensive. Regularly learn and practice new sports”. (CrossFit). The whole way of life may not be so easy to define in 100 words, but the journey must start somewhere.
Discovering a perfect training routine is a demanding process, and those who assume that they know what it takes to be in good physical condition are probably confused. There is no specific path to follow in order to achieve your individual goal, but rather a training philosophy. According to Gym Jones, “A successful training program must be influenced by individual goals, individual differences (height/weight), sports specificity, the current state of training and any cyclical accents that may guide the training”. (Twilight). The continuous process of achieving the desired program requires a continuous search. A training routine is only a tool that an individual uses to achieve his or her goal. The gym is the place where the real work is done.
Of course, pro-fighter will have a different program to follow than the pro-player. However, regardless of the sports program, the unit will have to constantly improve certain aspects of the program in order to gain an additional step from the competition. Gaining motivation and determination to win usually means accepting pain and sacrifice with a positive attitude. There are no weekends or public holidays on this journey, but only a lifestyle that starts when you wake up and ends when it’s time to go to sleep. On the way forward, don’t hesitate. Do not confuse the desire to achieve a certain goal with the ability to achieve it. As a consequence, today’s society mistakenly looks at someone who is “physically fit”, first of all at his appearance, and not at the raw strength and endurance of the athlete. As a result, this misinterpretation creates a poisonous environment in many normal gyms and fitness clubs, where users tend to walk only through movements and not to demonstrate exactly what sacrifice and sacrifice can bring.
To become healthy and fit, you need to eat good quality food. Food is the basis for the way forward, and at this level of fitness, a diet must be flawless. In the United States, many people have no idea how to eat properly. This is evident in a recent study by the American Diabetes Association, which showed that about 64% of Americans are overweight or obese. Because of poor dietary management, too often people deprive the body of essential carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. These three elements are the building blocks of the human body. Carbohydrates are the body’s main source of energy and are commonly known as simple or complex carbohydrates. The body needs enough carbohydrates throughout the day, especially with intensive physical activity, to maintain a healthy condition. If there is no carbohydrate source, the body will begin to produce carbohydrates by decomposing proteins.
