Threshold Training

There’s a checklist one goes through when looking to make improvements in their fitness. In CrossFit, that checklist starts out with coming to the workouts consistently. Am I showing up at least three times per week? That should be concern number one. Not how hard I go or can I do everything? Nope. Just show…

Individualized vs. Group Programming

I’ve recently seen an uptick on social media about people discussing the need for individualized programming as opposed to group programming. Everyone that advocates for this neglects to mention one key aspect of whether or not you should do it. IF you are preparing for a specialist event, then there’s a POSSIBILITY you should take…

The 5K run is the MOST heavily programmed workout in the history of the main site. There have been workouts there every day, three days on…

What are Functional Movements?

I remember back in about 2007-ish when functional movements were starting to become all the rage in the fitness industry.

Why the Snatch?

I’ve heard over and over from folks in the community who ask why do we have to snatch? We all know there’s never going to be a moment in real life where I’m going to have to take an object from the floor and get it overhead in one swift motion. It’s rarely, if ever,…
