There is another definition of “spirituality,” which has more to do with the fleeting—but very real—subjective experience of spirituality that athletes frequently tap into, regardless of which developmental altitude they may be coming from. Often described as being “in the zone” or “out of his head,” athletes can often slip into the same exact nondual states of consciousness that have more typically been associated with artists and mystics—states of utter self-transcendence and unobstructed creative or performative flow. These nondual "flow" states (along with gross, subtle, causal, and witness states) form the very core of esoteric and contemplative forms of spiritual practice at the heart of virtually all the world’s religious traditions—and although they have very different names, metaphysical assumptions, and cultural contexts from tradition to tradition, there is an astonishing symmetry in all of these various descriptions, enough to suggest an essential unity underlying every single spiritual experience and expression in the history of mankind

Three-part Charter:
Mechanics, Consistency, Intensity

Proper movements will allow you to lift more
weight, perform more repetitions faster, or both. More
work in less time means higher average power (force x
distance / time = power).

Fitness is increased
work capacity across broad time, modal, and age domains.

The Next Step: Base Proficiency Benchmarks
- 10 overhead squat with PVC
- 10 push presses with a barbell equal to 1/3 of your
- 5 deadlifts at 1/2 bodyweight
- 5 push-ups from knees with hands on ground (men) or on
a bench (women)
- 5 jumping pull-ups
- 10 wallballs to a target two feet above your reach with an
8-lb. ball (men) or a 4-lb. ball (women)
- 10 Abmat sit-ups with feet anchored

Think of fuel in
three macronutrient categories: carbohydrates, protein,
and fat; and balance them for every meal with a ratio of
40-30-30 respectively.

Techniure and Intensity
Technique and speed

CrossFit’s fundamental
movements. There are nine total: squat, front squat,
overhead squat; shoulder press, push press, push
jerk; deadlift, sumo deadlift high pull, and medicine
ball clean.

Our prescription is constantlyvaried,
high-intensity, functional movements.

Absolute intensity is simply average power; and average
power is force times distance divided by time. Absolute
intensity is a mathematically substantiated, empirically
defined term.

Relative intensity, however, is subjective, depending
purely on the individual’s physical and psychological
tolerances. Relative intensity means you have to work
as hard as you can without overdoing it.
Both absolute and relative intensity, though very
different by definition, must be pursued in the same
manner: with steady progress. Intensity is best built
up gradually over time. We need intensity to garner the
unprecedented benefits of CrossFit, but we also need to
begin at a very moderate level and steadily build upon
that foundation.

At some point, you will have developed enough basic
competency in a variety of functional movements
to graduate to working off the main site WODs
