Greg Glassman, founder of CrossFit, says: ``Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, preasses, C&J and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, pressses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits and hols. Bike, run, swim, row, etc. hard and fast. Five or six days a week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.``
