    New guy with questions on Crossfit training.

    I have been lifting weights seriously for about 1 year, and have been hearing more and more about Crossfit workouts. Will crossfit build muscle while burning fat in the process? I also would like some workout regimen ideas for getting started. I basically want to burn the little bit of fat I have and still get stronger and keep gaining muscle. Thanks

    It is possible to build muscle while burning fat in the process during a CrossFit workout. Their are many CrossFit workouts that you can do that will test your "strong arm" meaning their is a substantial amount of weight you can use but also do reps with. If you are looking for regimen ideas you would really like these workouts on http://www.northrimcrossfit.com/workout-of-the-day. Don't worry, CrossFit will build muscle and burn off the litte bit of fat you looks to lose.

    Whether you build muscle following a typical Crossfit scheme depends on what route you take within the crossfit world. There's several programs like conjugate crossfit, crossfit football, gslp, etc. look around online.

    A Crossfit-only program will get you in shape and you can burn that fat if your diet is right but Crossfit is NOT bodybuilding. i love it and you CAN and WILL build muscle on those programs, but despite what some will tell you it isnt the best way to build muscle.

    Crossfit has many interpretations, but if strength is a priority for you following main page CF won't be the fastest route. Most CF'ers with good strength either come from an athletic background before going to CF or incorporate a basic strength program.

    CF is good for overall fitness and is flexible enough if you know how to program to adjust it to specific goals.

    I think Lucy or Mariko should decapitate them all.

    Depends... super strong people tend to lose a bit of strength... but in turn, they gain a ton of conditioning. People who are relatively new to lifting(1 year is) will gain both strength and lose fat. NOTE: You have to watch your diet as well.
