This article contains a collection of resources i’ve put together on how to write training programs for intermediate to advanced Crossfit competitors. After reading all of the articles linked below you should understand…
What energy systems are, how they work, and how to practically apply this information.
How to identify and train sport specific limitations in Crossfit.
How to create impactful training protocols for delivery, respiratory, and utilization limited athletes.
What an elite Crossfit athletes physiology looks like, and what i’ve learned from conducting physiologic assessment on dozens of Crossfit athletes.
How to combine energy system training and resistance training in a concurrent training plan.
In this article you’ll learn what is wrong with the classic model of bioenergetics, depicted in the image above, as well as how to integrate modern contemporary models of bioenergetics into your energy system training protocols. If you’re curious about how to identify and train bioenergetic limiters, then understanding the concepts in this article in the starting point.
In this article I present you with a lens for identifying and training sport specific limitations in Crossfit athletes. I start by identifying the underlying physiological limiters that lead to common sensations like ‘blowing up’ in a metcon. Then I deconstruct those limiters and present you with my model for how to train to improve them.
In this article I present you a comprehensive guide to training interventions and tools I use to improve delivery limited athlete’s performance. These are the same strategies i’ve used with podium Crossfit game competitors and professional fighters.
In this article I present you a comprehensive guide to training interventions and tools I use to improve respiritory limited athlete’s performance. These are the same strategies i’ve used with professional endurance athlete and top CrossFit games competitors.
In this article I present you a comprehensive guide to training interventions and tools I use to improve utilization limited athlete’s performance.
You can speculate all you want about what makes an elite Crossfit athlete elite, but it’s all theoretical until you actually check under the hood. I’ve tested dozens of Crossfit athletes ranging from recreational competitors, sanctional athletes, and games athletes it is abundantly clear that the physiology of a top Crossfit Games competitor differs significantly from those on the cusp of greatness. In this two part article series you’ll learn why.
In this article I'll teach you by best practices and program design heuristic for combing strength and endurance training which will help you sift through the nonsense written about concurrent training and apply your knowledge practically.
