Re: Heavy Squat rep clarification

That is what I thought...that is what I am used to. But I felt like I read in the CFSB article(or elsewhere) that the 5-5-5-5-5 is a set of 5 singles where you reset. Anywho...I am going to keep...

Re: Programming Question...Any Surfers out there?

Thanks Owen for your reply.

I guess for me, like you stated your paddling fatigue is the biggest kink in the surfing chain. That is one major area that I want to be careful of not overtraining...

Re: Another Shoulder post...

Steven,

In your opinion, should I pick up with CF WODs but at low intensity for a month or so and focus on stretching, massage, etc. Or should I completely rest that side from activity?
