    Hi everyone,
    I did a lot of research on incorporating some gym routines to complement my Muay Thai trainings, which are 3x a week, but want to hear your opinion and experiences on Crossfit.

    My man aim is to work on conditioning, strenght and general body shaping, as with Muay Thai, I'm fairly skinny.
    I was considering 5/3/1 with Boring but big, but now I also looked into Crossfit and that seems like it could more complement my Muay Thai regime in all aspects, mainly conditioning and strenght.

    Opinions, ideas ? Cheers !

    +1.

    And learn how to use the "search" function. It might elucidate some prior commentary.

    This has to be one of the most level-headed responses by a dude who just started a thread on crossfit and was told to read the FAQ.

    Good luck with your goals.

    Uh attend your MT class more. Thatll get you in the proper shape quicker then any CF class could with the beneift of working your skill even more. Run or jump rope for additional workouts, if you want to lift choose a better routine (starting strength, stronglifts).

    You are worried about being too skinny,don't do crossfit the conditioning wont do alot to help build muscle 5/3/1 BBB sounds perfect for you and thats coming from some1 who trains under a crossfit certified trainer whom uses crossfit work outs for conditioning.
