Re: Blending Met-cons and GSLP, how to do it

I like CrossFit Fort Bragg's programming over all. Good general CrossFit with some heavy lifting. If you want to build strength faster then GSLP + met-cons would do it.

It can be tough to coordinate with an affiliate's programing. You might see if you could simply come in early and do one lift a day on a rotating basis for some extra strength work. Bench, squat, press, deadlift. We like weighted pull ups, dips and chin ups as well for building strength.

Just kind of depends on how much how fast.

Most people doing dedicated strength programs pick their own met-cons to allow for adequate recovery and no interference with lifting. Too much barbell work in the met-cons can interfere with the lifting recovery.
