Spend enough time throwing around barbells and you'll get strong too.

Spend enough time throwing around barbells with Mike Burgener and pretty much anyone will get mega strong from the looks of it.

Curious on the Sprinting. Why full recovery between sprints as opposed to Tabata sprints?

Because real sprints build more power and make you faster

Yeah, that. Tabata sprints would work well for events over the 800, but it's not really going to do much to help your top end. If you can't run a 60 second 400m, you're not going to run many consecutive 75 second 400s, no matter how many interval workouts you've done.

Re: Josh Everetts training for the games?

i take full recovery between sprints because my "conditioning" is covered during the traditional crosfit style met-con workouts on t&TH
