The recent Crossfit Games got me thinking about overall fitness and the relationship this might have to bodybuilding in my life. I like the idea of overall fitness and in part it is why I chose bodybuilding in the first place. The only things I really see in bodybuilding as weaknesses are flexibility and cardiovascular work. Ultimately Cross fitness seems to engage a more overall health strategy. I have decided to employ some of the ideas as a way to make my workouts both more challenging and more interesting.
Mostly I want to add some of the open workout stuff like burpees, the snatch, box jump, etc. The idea of adding stuff until I know the basic movements and then start putting them together.
Nutritionally I am heading into a more clean diet in part because I need to an also for financial reasons I need a more structured diet.
