Re: Elite crossfit athlete development theory

Great discussion on building aerobic capacity....I think all three (swimming, rowing, proper running) should be used...You get slightly different benefits from all three so as long as you have the facilities and equipment available I think you're better off using them all. I know I was never better at METCONs than I was when I was doing swimming work M, W, and F. IIRC my Helen dropped from 9:45 to about 8:20 and I SUCK at running, it was all from swimming. I think this was over a 2 month period...so 8 weeks or so.
