WOD Generator - how would yours work?
 
I know there are a few about (I'd love links to any I haven't seen already) but how would your idea "WOD Generator" work?

Programming is "random" I know but often there's a bit more of a pattern discernable in the "chaos".

Some of the 3 day cycles look like strength building, some like metcon, some a mixture.

In most of the WODs there'll be care about not hammering one muscle set with high-rep-low-weight AND low-rep-high-weight together.

I was thinking of making my own generator, and thought it might be good to get some advice from the experts.

I want to avoid making WODs that aren't one thing or the other, to try and incorporate some balance into the design of each WOD, each cycle, and to try and get a bit of a pattern in the cycles...

There is a method to the programming madness and I beleive its covered in in one of the the CF Journals.

Please, just do the wods, if you don't like MP...do some other affiliates. You don't need to re-invent the programming.

"there is a method to the programming madness..." With regards MP, I disagree.

You disagree that there's a method, or that there's an article about that method in the journal?

I have access to a limited and fairly random set of equipment, and I was hoping to create a generator that could be tailored for that.

Larry, I've tried searching through the journal but I'm not coming up with anything specific... Any idea when you saw it?

By and large links WFS, I didnt scour them for language but they all are in the CFJ.

Larry, that's awesome. Thanks a lot.

There is definetely an article, with the M's, and W's, and G's, and the MW's, etc. IMO, you would be hard pressed however to find any ryhme or reason to the actual MP "programming."
