What do you think am I way off base here?
If you run a simple test cycle, like the one that is outlined in the newbie sticky, and run a crossfit style workout through the entirety of the cycle wouldn’t you have most likely these results
More strength- your normal ten pull-ups would now be maybe 15ish. Your normal 160 thruster would now be 185.
More endurance- your normal tiring at 700 meters during an 800 would now have you finishing your 800 with less time recovering before you begin the next phase of the lift. i.e. run an 800 then deadlift 225- 21 times or whatever it is
Better body comp- Wouldn’t adding 10ish lbs of muscle to your frame allow for your body while working and resting to burn more calories, more fat therefore leaning you out.
I understand that these are pretty much the basics of what a cycle like that would do for you. But its nice to talk things out and have others chime in.
Now I know that crossfit has alot of folks that do not like it but just to help answer some of the questions in my head… What do you think. I mean wouldn’t being able to use more weight in a workout and to move it faster be nothing but beneficial? Or would the extra weight gained make me slower in bw lifts like pull-ups and dips and running.
Thanks in advance for all comments.
