At its most basic level, a warm up gets your heart rate up and your blood flowing. It primes your body’s tissues and joints for the intense work they are about to do. It also helps mitigate injury by increasing your end-ranges of mobility, which we all need. After warming up, you should feel more limber and more alive/awake.
A good warmup gives you time to practice movements and refine skills. By practicing movements under lower stress (light weight, low intensity), we will build those neurological pathways that are so important. Consistent exposure to these movements will also improve technique and increase capacity. This all leads to pushing harder at higher weights while (and most importantly) maintaining great technique.
Rather than thinking of how much time you’re spending ‘warming up’, think about how much time you’re preparing your body for a safe and intense workout. We know that intensity is the magic pill. What separates CrossFit from the majority of most other fitness regimes is that intensity reigns king. Intensity is what drives change and produces dramatic results.

Come enjoy the last race of the Ragnar year Ragnar Trail Alafia-FL, presented by Salomon—on Dec. 7-8, 2018. This trail lover’s playground is located about 30 miles southeast of Tampa at Alafia River State Park.
When you’re not running past emerald green pools, palm trees, ferns, hardwood forests, and towering pines, you’ll kick it with your team of 8 (or 4 runners) as you camp under billions of stars overhead. Runners have adopted an unofficial theme at this race, and you’re sure to see plenty of decorated trees and a few Santas running the trail with you.
Back home at Ragnar Village you can rest your legs next to the campfire, chow down on s’mores, and relax with your team. This year, runners (friends, co-workers, kids) are welcome to join us a night earlier, starting on Thursday for a bonus day of camping, campfires, kumbaya-ing and fun!
Any level of runner can come conquer the trails as you find yourself in this journey of adventure, self-discovery, and sheer nature-loving goodness. Mark your running calendar for Dec. 7-8 and join us at Ragnar Trail Alafia River.
