Re: Elite crossfit athlete development theory

So at that point, if doing 1 mainsite wod a day for 3 days on 1 off isn't going to get you there, you have to ask what will.

2 mainsite wods a day? 3 mainsite wods per day?

I think most people would agree not.

Probably something more like:
Strength work
Speed Work
Skill Practice

...scheduled appropriately as to not interfere with each other with adequate rest time (essentially some periodization).

....which is basically what happens in the strength and conditioning programs (pro or collegiate sports) these folks come into crossfit from anyway.
