CrossFit - First CrossFit Workout?

The CrossFit Journal -- (http://journal.crossfit.com)

The workout was simple: three rounds for time of a 400-meter run, 21 kettlebell swings at 1.5 pood and 12 pull-ups. In other words, Helen.

"Thought I'd be pretty good at it," Karl Steadman of CrossFit 3Dsays when describing his first CrossFit workout.

But after the initial round, he was "in a world of hurt."

"If I look back on it, I cringe now," Steadman adds.

Meanwhile, Jami Tikkanen of CrossFit Thames in England tested out CrossFit with a workout calling for four rounds for time of a 400-meter run and 50 squats. He was doing martial arts at the time, training 10 hours a week and doing 100 squats as part of his warm-up. When he saw the workout, he remembers thinking, "This is going to be a good day."

But after the second round, Tikkanen started to slow down and take breaks.

"Turns out that that fitness (I had been doing) did not translate to real life," he explains.

Still, despite years of CrossFit, Steadman says workouts remain grueling.

"It never gets easy," he says. "You just get faster."
