The aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness. We have sought to build a program that will best prepare trainees for any physical contingency — not only for the unknown, but for the unknowable. After looking at all sport and physical tasks collectively, we asked what physical skills and adaptations would most universally lend themselves to performance advantage. Capacity culled from the intersection of all sports demands would quite logically lend itself well to all sport.

With an emphasis on education, the CrossFit Breaux Bridge staff holds nearly every certification that CrossFit HQ offers—this ensures that we know how to get you fitter both faster and safer. It is a common misconception that if someone is good at something, they must be good at teaching it. We have found this to not necessarily be the case and at CFBB, we put our effort into getting YOU healthy and well while also maintaining a positive example.

Aww yea! Today we are going to be picking up some weights today. Yes today may seem like a regular globo gym workout, but we do just weightlifting workouts also. It’s part of CrossFit’s prescription being “Constantly Varied.” Conditioning is a big part of CrossFit. Many of our workouts cause you to sweat heavily, breathe hard and collapse on the floor at the end. These workouts range from relatively short tests such as Fran to longer challenges such as Cindy, and many Hero workouts take athletes into time domains past 20 minutes. While it’s true that Fran is one of CrossFit’s signature workouts and great test of certain aspects of fitness, it’s but one part of a program that emphasizes constant variation and competency in 10 areas of fitness. People sometimes characterize CrossFit by the workouts for time “met-cons”, this is a limited view. Days devoted to strength training are an essential variant of CrossFit and are also “CrossFit” workouts. No one is saying conditioning workouts are bad. They are very valuable in developing fitness. What I’m saying is that being part of a CrossFit program but avoid lifting workouts, you are missing out on a significant portion of the program and will not get as fit as you could have had you grabbed a heavy barbell once in a while. Don’t skip today because you think that it’s not going to be “much of a workout”. Put the effort in and reap the benefit of a weightlifting day. #cfbb #cfsl . . .

CrossFit Journal: The Performance-Based Lifestyle Resource

Should You Do Extra?

    This is one of the hotly debated and often asked questions around the CrossFit Community. There are varying opinions on this topic. The CrossFit Journal has addressed it here, but I am going to do an even simpler, more direct, and definitive answer below.   Yes.    Yes you SHOULD do extra.   You should:   Do EXTRA reps when you are in the middle of that long set you don’t want to finish Eat EXTRA paleo even when you aren’t on a Paleo Challenge Get EXTRA sleep which absolutely will require you shuffling around your schedule Go EXTRA heavy on our single lift days Ask your coach EXTRA questions about your form and movement Put some EXTRA effort into your workout instead just “seeing” what you get Incorporate some EXTRA stretching in your WoD Prep routine Be EXTRA honest when you No Rep and in your rep counting Put some EXTRA energy into how you do it   Look, you have to understand that this entire system is based on the discovery that Intensity is more valuable than Volume no matter what the goal is. People run 5k’s for fun. No one does Fran as fast as they possibly can for fun. Going slower for a longer period of time will never provide what going all out for a short period of time does.   When you get to the point where you can consistently look back at the day and say,   “I could not have eaten any better than I did,  I could not have slept any better than I did,  I could not... read more
