I like this piece...

About 4 years ago it came to my attention that my athletes were, as a general state, weak. This was no fault of their own as they came from backgrounds that included running, biking and a generally active lifestyles, but few if any had participated in formalized strength and conditioning. The general Crossfit programming I followed certainly improved their general conditioning however NO ONE rolled into my gym and turned a Fran or Diane at diagnostic loading. I by contrast turned pretty impressive numbers on these CrossFit standards almost from day-1 due to my background as a reasonably good powerlifter (565sqt, 565 DL, 345 bench at 181lbs). My experience with CrossFit was that of a strong athlete becoming a FIT athlete. I assumed my clients would follow a similar trajectory...this error can be chalked up to being Green as a coach and thinking that my journey would be every one's journey. It was about this time that Rutman shot an email to me with a template that included some max effort work rolled systematically into standard metabolic conditioning. At first I did not see the power of this method, but even I can be only so dense. If my clients lacked strength and technicality, they needed to lift consistently to address the issue.

Fast forward nearly 5 years and my gym is full of STRONG and FIT people. Our affiliate won the overhead squat/pull up workout at the CrossFit Games by 10 points and we placed 3rd overall. I keep hearing a purely randomized approach is the best way to complete fitness. I ran my gym in a randomized fashion, then I followed Coach Rut's ME Black Box and have produced not only top level CrossFitters, but also champion athletes from a number of sports. If you actually EARN your living coaching people you figure this stuff out eventually! Thank you to Coach Rut for making me a better coach and for helping to make CrossFit NorCal one of the best gyms around.

Lol i like :

Squats can only strengthen, tear or break something. Strengthening, tearing and breaking is totally awesome. Thus squats are awesome.

Seems Coach Rip is going down the same path too.

it may not be an appropriate comparision...

you probably could get a decent sandwich and a milk shake at the original mcd.
the 1,000,000th franchise is not serving anything close to the original...

Well they switch McD (Rip) with BK (Tate).
Paleo (Robb Wolf) with Zone (Sears).

Soon the Blackbox guys will be a splinter cell - http://blackboxsummit.typepad.com/black ... bout-.html

WTF are you talking about, we didnt switch Rip with Dave. Dave is just an addition. And both the paleo and Zone have always been the 2 options, there is no cancelling of either one from the programme.
Constant Variant, Functional Movements executed at high intensity eliciting in an increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains........
The sceince is in the Programme, the magic is in the Movements

twat

dave tate is referred to way back on the the main page in 2005/6 if i recall

the programming is constantly changing

this is because more and more people are doing it and their results affect the programming

you still don't get it do you

That was a rather disturbing case of unprofessionalism, it's going to be interesting to see CF HQ's public response on the matter.

We received communication last night from CF Legal that our affiliate license was to be terminated today. Greg Everett (Catalyst Athletics) received the same notice.


the exodus will begin now.
