Aren’t you just copying CrossFit?

Sure, you could say that in some ways I am copying CrossFit. I post new workouts every day, my functional training is “CrossFit style”, and I promote the ideas of variety, community, and camaraderie in fitness. But these same ideas are also basic to the military. The old US Army Field Manual 21-20 first published over 30 years ago recognized the Principles of Exercise as regularity, progression, balance, variety, specificity, recovery, and overload. Sound familiar?

My training style and the way I believe Warrior Athletes should train is heavily influenced by ideas that were solidified by the military and popularized by CrossFit. I take those same ideas, balance them with what a Warrior Athlete needs to accomplish their mission, and then train to make myself a little bit better every day.
