Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

You are mostly right. I would bet most elite athletes' S&C programs fall within the general parameters of what constitutes CrossFit. The definition of CrossFit is not vague, however.

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

You selectively pick a quote made in a certain context and conveniently leave out others which are on point, such as the clear direction and admission that CrossFit is not intended to replace sport...

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

I get the impression some people believe CrossFit methodology precludes tailoring a program to a particular athlete. That is just flat out dead wrong and a total misunderstanding of what CrossFit...

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

If they are only training within their specific discipline, without a core strength and conditioning program, then yes I could do a better job training them or at least improve their training by...

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

So you are saying you don't agree with me that all athletes can improve through a solid core strength and conditioning program?

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

I don't really view that as a substantive answer.

Just sticking to training your specific discipline--swimming for swimmers; riding bikes for cyclists; running for runners; doing deadlifts,...

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

What "smarter" training should they do? Just add more swimming, riding, running, powerlifting, sprinting, etc. to their training regimen without incorporating core strength and conditioning?

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

What do those other sport athletes do for core strength and conditioning/cross training?

Surely they are doing core strengthening, something above and beyond just their chosen sport. What are...

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

True, quality core strength and conditioning programs were certainly used by some coaches and athletes in the past (even the distant past). Core strength and conditioning training was probably even...

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

I would add this statement:

[QUOTE]if you're goal is to be better at Crossfit. Otherwise, Crossfit will never produce what Dan Green produces. It will never create a Malanichev, Konstantinov,...

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

What is CrossFit? It is a core strength and conditioning program. It wasn't meant to replace sport specific training.

While it doesn't replace sport specific training, such as for a cyclist...

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

There is a difference between cycling and CrossFit. Cyclists train in a way which is known to deplete beneficial hormone levels--chronic cardio (and in a serious way with 6+ hour days on the bike...

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?

I would argue it is more likely those who rise to the top out of hundreds of thousands of competitor's are those who are apt to be genetically gifted (in addition to working their *** off). A few...

Re: Is Rich Froning the next Lance Armstrong?
