Why CrossFit?

Lift Big Eat Big specializes in strength sports, fitness, and, most recently, CrossFit, as the sport uniquely combines Olympic Weightlifting, Strongman, and gymnastics into a brutal conditioning circuit.

Olympic Weightlifting is an essential skill in CrossFit as athletes need to perform various snatch, clean, and jerk variations as part of different WODs. Often these Olympic lifts are not performed on their own and are placed within weightlifting complexes, meaning that you need increased work capacity to complete them.

As you spend more time completing CrossFit circuits and your confidence grows, you can begin to cycle a barbell between reps until you are ready to start with the Olympic lifts. This routine will require some equipment, such as Olympic weightlifting shoes, wrist wraps, knee sleeves, and hook grip tape.

If you are eager to combine your Strongman training with your CrossFit exercise, Lift Big Eat Big suggests the farmer’s walk, yoke walk, and sandbag carry. While not to the same loading as Strongman events, the exercises are performed when you’re completely exhausted. Additionally, you also have exercises used exclusively within CrossFit, like the thruster.
