You hear people all the time talk about how CrossFit is a sport for a medium sized athlete, for a guy let’s say between 5ft 9′ and 5ft 11′ and around 185-195#. While this might be true to be one of the fittest on earth, that isn’t always the case. You can take a look at Brent Fikowski who’s a bigger or “taller” athlete. Josh Bridges who is a “Smaller” athlete, the list goes on and on.
What you do hear from time to time, is people complaining about the workout based on their size. For example, is you see a bunch of gymnastic movements, generally the taller or bigger athletes tend to hate it. On the flip side, if you see wallballs and rowing, you tend to hear all the small athletes complain. Well the video below might help those of you that are on the taller or bigger side and how you should go about your training. Doesn’t mean you have to change your entire approach, but maybe adding in some things to help you out.
