Debunking 3 Common CrossFit Myths, Beavercreek, Ohio

There are many myths surrounding CrossFit, which can intimidate many people who believe this workout regimen is simply too challenging for them. However, most of what people believe about CrossFit isn’t true at all, which is why we at Bombers CrossFit is clearing up the prevailing myths regarding these high-intensity, rewarding workouts.

CrossFit Has A Higher Risk Of Injury 

crossfitInjuries can occur no matter the workout, and CrossFit is no exception. Because CrossFit was designed to strengthen muscles using common movements, it will help stave off injury over time. The key to preventing a serious injury is to know your body and its limitations. To combat the soreness that usually accompanies a difficult workout session, eat lots of foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids (such as nuts and fish) and drink plenty of water.

You May Develop A Serious Health Condition

Intense physical activity can sometimes result in rhabdomyolysis, which is a condition that may cause damage to the kidneys or even kidney failure in extreme cases. You can reduce your risk of rhabdo by easing into CrossFit slowly if you are a first-timer. This will allow your body to get adjusted to the intensity of the workout before pushing yourself too hard.

It’s Too Hard For The Average Person
