Combine simplefit with weights

Postby Lince » Thu Feb 19, 2009 4:51 pm

Hi everyone!

I wanted to know what you guys think is a smart way of combining simplefit with a little of weight training.

I was thinking about replacing Day 2 with a weight training sesion.

Any insight is very much appreciated!

If you are new or restarting, just to SF for a month or so and then start adding to it.

Thanks volleyball_man, got your point. When the time comes, how would you start "adding" it?

It's been 2 weeks, currently I am in 9m22s @L3D3.

After a year of simple fit I started mixing things up as well by throwing in some weight training, although not the typical weight training that I used to do when I was a gym rat. I do a day of simple fit, then a day of a crossfit workout that includes an olympic lift, like a thruster workout or snatches, then another day of simple fit then repeat. This is what worked for me.

I'd take it slow with olympic lifts at first if you've never done them before and maybe do 2 days of simple fit to 1 of lifting. Make sure your form is good and don't sacrifice form for weight.

Simplefit is circuit training. Weight training in clusters is similar and often is performed in Crossfit. Combining these two together is actually a good idea as long as you rest sufficiently between sets to maintain form.
