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.





Straight up barbell cycling/conditioning is the name of the game today. Before we get to the almighty “DT” let’s see the heaviest Hang power clean and push jerk you guys got. This will also give us an idea of what type of weights we should be using in the workout. So this workout DT guys is intended to be done in under or right at 10 minutes. The best in the world get this done RX at about 7 or 8 minutes. That is the time and stimulus we are shooting for! RX does not mean you are good at CrossFit. RX does not mean you are man or woman. Not if we are not hitting intended stimuli for the workout of the day. Choose weights wisely and keep this workout under 15 minutes. If it takes you more than that, you probably went too heavy. If your wind “cardio” that holds you back but you are strong enough to do the weight…. STILL SCALE DOWN THE WEIGHT and get your “cardio” better by moving efficiently and fast through this. Tip of the day! do 11 deadlifts, drop it. Deadlift one more to make 12, then begin your hang cleans and if you can muster up all 9 go straight into your push jerks after.

Common Rowing Faults and How to Correct Them

Rowing is an excellent exercise for people of all body types and fitness levels. It can be an effective tool in your fitness regimen whether you’re just starting out with CrossFit or have been hitting WODs for years. Not only is an indoor rower easy to use and accessible, the rowing technique is fairly easy to get the hang of. Rowing has tremendous physical benefits, as well: – It strengthens 9 major muscle groups  – Is an amazing cardio workout – Is very low impact – Burns calories – Measures your time, distance, calories, and pace Rowing also offers mental benefits when added to your training. Because the Concept2 rowers that we use at CrossFit Breaux Bridge and CrossFit St. Landry have computer screens that display your pace, time, and distance/calories, you are held accountable for every stroke. For this reason, you learn to pace yourself and “empty the tank” when the time comes — which can make for some very mentally tough men and women! There are a few common faults in rowing that could be preventing you from experiencing all of its wonderful benefits. Here are 3 faults that I see when coaching and some tips on how to fix them!   #1 Driving from your quads While it may seem beneficial to slide the seat as far forward as you can to get a long stroke, this position is mechanically disadvantageous for efficiency and muscle stamina. A better position would be to stop once the seat is 1-2 feet away from your heels. This “catch” position will allow for your hamstrings and gluteus muscles to initiate... read more
