CrossFit workouts and nutrition are often always being described or used in a way that can be quantifiable. This means in CrossFit we measure what we do for exercise and training, as well as how and what we eat. We use weights, time, distances, and macronutrient values so we have clear and measurable standards, helping us develop clear and reliable data. These numbers give us a sense of our overall fitness levels and the direction we are moving. For example, if we keep track of a 1-rep max deadlift, protein intake, and resting heart rate in the morning, we can see if these numbers are moving in the right direction. Following the CrossFit protocol, in almost every circumstance, will move these numbers in the right direction. If the values are not moving in the right direction, then the methodology and practices that CrossFit values will adapt to be what most effectively, efficiently, and safely drives the results. CrossFit uses the same scientific method that we all learned in middle school: question, hypothesis, test, observe, repeat. Our goal is to do what works best. If the data says what we are doing is not the best, we drop those practices and move on.
