    They have a "workout of the day" (WoD) listed at the website (crossfit.com) - it's pretty self-explanatory if you know what the exercises are. You can always modify the workouts if necessary. Did you have more specific questions?
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

" 15:35 mins " . i hate to sound like an anoying rookie but maybe somone can help me with something really basic i can do and give me the basic outline on what and how to do it. sorry for the hassle but it would be nice if i could go in my backyard and give it a shot. thanks

    I'm not getting what you don't understand... If you post a WoD, maybe we could walk you through it. I think that would be the easiest thing to do.

    There are hundreds of WoDs... and you want one of them to do 3x/week? I give up - I don't think I can help you. You could try the GPP forum here, or you could go to http://www.board.crossfit.com/ No doubt someone else will be able to help you.
