The following was taken from the CrossFit Journal Link on the right. Take a few minutes and dig into that groundbreaking article that changed the way people exercise!
■ Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds,
some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep
intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat.
A Theoretical Heirarchy of Development
A theoretical hierarchy exists for the development of an athlete. It
starts with nutrition and moves to metabolic conditioning, gymnas-
tics, weightlifting, and finally sport. This hierarchy largely reflects
foundational dependence, skill, and to some degree, time ordering
of development. The logical flow is from molecular foundations,
cardiovascular sufficiency, body control, external object control,
and ultimately mastery and application. This model has greatest
utility in analyzing athletes’ shortcomings or difficulties.
We don’t deliberately order these components but nature will. If
you have a deficiency at any level of “the pyramid” the compo-
nents above will suffer.
