CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. All CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more. These are the core movements of life. They move the largest loads for the longest distances, so they are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results and is measurable as work divided by time or power. The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness.
Mr..Dorjnamjim represented Crossfit Pintados in individual RX division from Cebu city. Podium finishers for RX Men (professional level) are Micheal Mogard, Reebok Crossfit 673 from USA; Dorjsembe Dorjsembe, Crossfit Pintados from the Philippines; and, Darren Chai, Hybrid Movement, from Brunei Darussalam.
