Some of you have asked me recently, what you should be worried about when joining Factum CrossFit, and how you can improve your times, weight. There are any number of things to worry about, so let me give you a quick breakdown of things you shouldn’t be worried about.
CrossFit - March Schedule
?It is no secret, the elite of the cage fighting community tends to be riddled with world beating folkstyle and greco-roman wrestlers converted into fighters. As of February 2014, five out of the seven male UFC titles are held by former NCAA D-1 wrestlers. So what is it that makes this martial sport so effective among UFC fighters.
Before MMA hopped onto the scene, people feared the largest man in the room. Perhaps they felt the sheer size of the man warranted the assumption that the largest was therefore the most lethal. Today’s astute fight fan has changed this mentality, and no longer should you fear the largest man, but rather, you should fear the man with the most messed up ears. What is still consider grotesque in most circles, is often worn as a badge of pride by many wrestlers, mixed martial artists, jiu jitsu practitioners and boxers. It is often assumed a fighter with ruined ears has shown longevity in their given sport. And while some fighters seem more vulnerable than others (similar to how some people are riddle with cavities, while others have never had one) the method by which we fall victim to cauliflower ear is always the same.
As an owner of a CrossFit gym, one of the most common questions I am asked is “How do I cut down on my body fat”? This is a fair question, as studies have shown that carrying an excessive amount of body fat is one of the leading causes of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and death in the “Western” world. Today I want to focus on some very basic points, and for many of you these will only serve as reminders.
