This is a great idea. For folks who don't have ready access to a CrossFit facility, it can be a challenge to find all the information they need unless they have a lot of time to dig through the boards. Consolidation of the information would be a superb idea.

Ryan that is very close to what I had in mind but the structure I thought of was to start with Who? and discuss the Glassmans and the other notables of CF. What? and describe what CrossFit is, what you can expect from the workouts and so on and so forth. I have every intention of covering everything you mentioned and more.

Ryan, that's a great list but you might consider Chapter 12 "The Girls" and how to build a WOD and then a Chapter 13 (for all the bad luck it brings) Homemade and Sample WODS.

Eugene, do you sleep? Your one of the busiest guys I know!

Yes Brian, of course I sleep...just not frequently and not for very long. I work nights and have for most of my career as a cop but since the world operates on a schedule 12 hours off from mine I find it necessary to go to bed late and get up early. I have accomodated myself to it to some degree and on those rare opportunities where I get 8 hours of sleep in a row I feel tired all day. I feel better with just 5 and then a nap before I go to work. As it is I already wish for more hours in the day...I'd really be messed up if I had to sleep more.

Big project this book idea. Encyclopedic in fact. But what a resource it will be.

If he isn't already working on his own book, I'd like to see all of Coach B.'s stick progressions put in there. There is every reason to think that such a resource would be of interest in its' own right to O-lifters. His site and this site are, to my awareness, the most helpful on the Net in this regard.

Maybe your moniker should be Encyclopia Allen.

I think this sort of thing was the intent behind the potential crossfit wiki.

Ryan, Eugene,
That set up looks great.
How far along in the process are you Eugene? Put me down for a copy when it's finished.
I haven't been to a CF seminar yet, but I was wondering if a book like this could be used as a text for all the participants at a seminar?
Any thoughts?

Toss in a chapter on how to WOD with injuries. Ideas to work around shoulders, elbows, legs, and what not. Maybe chapter on some basic recovery after a WOD and some basic injury rehab. Scalability would be good too (in a start up section).

Joseph, that's excellent. We could also think about a section on warmup and cooldown as there are so many possibilties, techniques and opinions. It's almost an art like putting together a WOD in and of itself.

With Coach's style, this book would definitely be a page-turner!
