Re: Do You Do Anything Besides the WOD's?

Troy, thank you for your insight.

When you mention these other CF programs (CF Football and 5/3/1), are these something I would do in addition to the normal WOD's?

5/3/2 - are you talking about Jim Wendler’s 5/3/1 lifting program?

Thanks again,

There are a million threads about this kind of thing already, from CrossFit Strength Bias (I don't like that one, but I overtrain easily), CrossFit Football, which everyone seems to love, 5/3/1 which I'm a fan of, CrossFit Wichita Falls, incorporating West Side lifting methods (I like that one too), and on and on and on and on and on. And on.

Bottom line: I'd bet money that you will see drastic improvement everywhere if you do nothing more than get stronger. I don't know, but you might focus on the Olympic lifts and dynamic lifts.
