You’ve been hearing the term ‘CrossFit’ for years now, but what exactly is it, and how can you get on board? If you’re new to it, here are five common mistakes people make when they enter the world of CrossFit.
Too Much, Too Soon
It can be exciting starting a new exercise routine, but if you want to avoid injury, easy does it. Begin with lighter weights so you can watch your form and identify where your fitness level is at.
Take Out the Guesswork
There’s a lot of information about CrossFit to absorb, particularly during the early stages when everything is new. If you aren’t sure about how to start out, ask somebody who knows.
Take Adequate Rest Breaks
Sure, CrossFit is all about going hard, but you need to know your limits. Many people make the mistake thinking that if they push themselves, they’ll get the results faster, but this can be detrimental if you don’t allow yourself enough time to recover.
For results, you need to put in the time. That means committing to a regular routine, staying focused on your goals and giving it your all to make sure you achieve the desired results.
Break Bad Habits
If you’re serious, then it might be time to ditch the fatty foods, cigarettes and soft drink, and find the time to commit to CrossFit 100%.
If you don’t want to commit to a gym, consider doing it at home. Contact Nordic Fitness Equipment Cockburn Central, Osborne Park, or Cannington today – we have some of the best CrossFit equipment in Perth.
