Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

In Inside the Box, veteran journalist and marathoner T.J. Murphy goes all in to expose the gritty, high-intensity sport of CrossFit.

Murphy faced a future with a permanent limp from one too many marathons. Desperate to reclaim his fitness and strength, the 47-year-old signed up for his first CrossFit workout with nothing to lose. Anaerobically blasted by each workout of the day, Murphy discovered a sweat-soaked fitness revolution that's transforming bodies and lives.

CrossFit is the sport of fitness, a radical new approach to exercise that is turning the traditional gym workout upside down. Every day at thousands of CrossFit gyms across America, fitness seekers of all shapes and sizes flex their inner athlete by racing to finish fast-paced workouts. Each workout mixes weight lifting and gymnastics into an explosively effective and addictive new way to lose weight and carve out a new physique.

Inside the Box is Murphy's journey through CrossFit. From staggering newcomer to evangelist, Murphy finds out how it feels, why it's so popular, whether it can fix his broken body.

T.J. Murphy is a veteran endurance athlete, CrossFitter, and former editorial director of Triathlete, Inside Triathlon, and Competitor magazines. He is author of Triathlete Magazine s Guide to Finishing Your First Triathlon and contributor to Start to Finish: 24 Weeks to an Endurance Triathlon.

Ce livre nous fait entrer dans l'univers des Crossfit box. Il nous raconte l'expérience d'un jogger habitué à courir depuis des années, qui a dû s'arrêter à cause de problèmes aux jambes. Place à une nouvelle mentalité et à des exercices ciblés en accord avec les capacités fonctionnelles d'un corps humain.

On entre dans l'univers de salles de gym d'un nouveau style. On y retrouve Grassman et le célèbre Kelly Starret. Ce livre m'a beaucoup apporté : je le conseille vivement.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Is Crossfit a Fad or a Revolution? 12 août 2015
Par Alex Hutchinson's Twisted Trails - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I have been fascinated and yet skeptical about Crossfit since I first heard of it. Having grown up through many sports I always had one foot in the world of weight lifting/conditioning with the belief that it would make me better at everything else. During those 25+ years there were many trends, fads, diets and scams intended to sell people on easier and easier ways to build muscle, strength and an amazing body. One by one these highly marketed products and methods failed or were disproved and no one batted an eye about it. That is why I was so hesitant when Crossfit started popping up on television, most notably in the form of the Crossfit Games. Here was a new system of exercise that claimed to get a person fit and strong with astonishing results. After a few years of having it pop up again and again, I finally decided to check it out.

Inside the Box by T.J. Murphy was my introduction to the history and mystery that is Crossfit. In this short book the author, who had been damaged by years of endurance racing, puts his own body on the line by signing up at a "Box." Along the way he learns about the process of which Crossfit came into creation and the many experiments that made it into a worldwide sensation. While this book does not have all the answers to dispel the critics, it does open the door to where the sport of fitness came from and where it appears to be going.

By giving a personal example, T.J. inspired me to try the Crossfit WOD named "Cindy." I had already done weeks of training for Cyclocross but nothing I had done was even close to the intensity of Cindy. I was sore for four days before reassembling my pride. I thought I was in good shape but suddenly had to reassess my schedule. I read this book in only a few days but it lit a fire in me. I started reading another Crossfit book immediately after and began to add WODs to my CX training. I can't imagine anything that could get me in better shape. Am I fully sold? No, but I'm going to give it a heartfelt try. If this system can better my racing by making me stronger how could I turn it away?
5.0 étoiles sur 5 An introduction to Crossfit, but it will open you up to a new way of thinking about fitness. 1 octobre 2014

Excellent read. Gives you an introduction into the world of Crossfit, but not as a fitness movement, but as a lifestyle. Got introduced to folks like Kelly Starrett of Mobility WOD, and Brian Mackenzie who are kind of the pioneers in areas of mobility and fitness for the everyday man as well as teaching people how to move and run as they should be and un-condition themselves from the sedentary lifestyles of American living.

I've begun my quest to rebuilding and claiming my "summer feet", learning how to run again, and achieving flexibility and mobility of my hips and shoulders so I can squat appropriately with my ass to the grass.

Great overview and history for anyone interested in learning more about CrossFit. I now know more about what I've been doing the last three months and what I can expect in the future. I'm a 46yo runner and triathlete, so this author's perspective has been very similar to my own. I started doing CrossFit as something to do with my wife coming off the heels of my first Olympic Triathlon. I thought I was just in the greatest shape, but was humbled trying to do CrossFit. I had even been cross-training with a personal trainer for years when I stepped into the "box". The author of this book was an even better runner and triathlete than I and had a similar experience, which makes me feel much better. Like him, I've seen great results in just 3 months. I wanted to learn more about CrossFit. Why is a gym a "CrossFit" gym? What the heck does AMRAP and Metcon mean? Who are Fran and Cindy? Who invented this stuff, anyway? Honestly, I don't know if I would have believed half of what was in this book (e.g. the principle of non-specific training) if I hadn't already been experiencing it. That said, it was great to get a better understanding of the underlying principles of what makes CrossFit so different, encouragement to check my ego at the door, and continue to experience gains that I didn't think were possible at my age. Read this book if you are curious about CrossFit or have been doing it for a little while and want to fill in some gaps. I tell you this, after doing CrossFit for 3 months my days of walking into a gym and meandering from station to station not talking to anyone are over. Also, my days of paying a trainer $45 for a 30-minute workout are numbered. This book called my attention to CrossFit Endurance training, which I am now learning to incorporate into my marathon and triathlon training. It was definitely worth the price of the Kindle download!

I had just seen a little of the CrossFit Games on ESPN and wanted to learn more about CrossFit when I bought this book. I learned a great deal reading it, not only about the terms and workouts (like WOD and Fran), but also about the dynamic of a small, supportive group pushing each member toward greater fitness and achievement. I thank the author for stating some of the great truths of CrossFit and life, that you get out of it what you put into it and that every worthy achievement requires pain and sacrifice. I read the book twice, once when it arrived and again after starting to work out in a CrossFit box. I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about this fitness phenomenon.

I thought crossfit was a cult of Olympic lifting strongman meatheads. The anecdotes are sound as the science has not caught up. The community surrounding crossfit is amazing! The results can be incredible. This book shares the vision, background, and common experience of crossfit in an easy to read narrative. It left me wanting more. It left me wanting to go workout. It left me wanting to join a box. If you want to get stronger, be prepared for the unknown, and be "pretty good" at whatever you try, crossfit is perfect for you. If you want a well rounded supplement to your specific sport that will make you a better athlete, crossfit will work there too. If you're already an elite athlete, crossfit might help you get better. The community of shared suffering s bonding at its finest. A must read if you're at all interested.
