Dom on Monday’s 12/200 Push Press.
Found this great podcast on programming for Crossfit with Kenny Kane of CFLA. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvp5Embi2mU (skip to 42:00) I must say it’s encouraging to see some progressive gyms shifting to a more sustainable long term approach to health and fitness that is not steered astray by training for Crossfit competitions. For some, the initial draw of excitement and intensity can have a short shelf life either with burnout or injury. Replace that with a focus on challenging skill/strength work for YOUR current ability… built over a solid conditioning base and most importantly a foundation of good nutrition, sleep and stress management and you should be good to go for the long haul.
