They have posted a few videos on the crossfitgames site with Josh talking about various things as to his training. One of the latest videos in the CFJ have to do with his diet and supplementation.

Re: Josh Everetts training for the games?

there are no secrets... CV FM HI

Monday: agilty training (about 10min) + sprints 1x each full recovery between reps: 50m, 100, 200m, 300m

Tuesday: O-lifting & squatting followed by a wt room based met-con

Wednesday: sprints (normally something like 10x 40yds with full recovery)

Thursday: O-lifting & squatting followed by a met con with running

Friday: off

Sat: O-lifting + sometimes a met con

Sunday off

let me say that I am not training for the games... if i were doing that I'd ignore the o-lifts and focus on my weaknesses... ( extreme high rep anything, double unders, swimming, wall balls)
I love o-lifting & sprinting... it just happens that those 2 things make a whole lot of other things better.

Re: Josh Everetts training for the games?

Only 3d/w for Oly lifting. Is that enough to compete nationally and hope for the podium possibly?

He probably gets 90% of his gains from 3 days a week - the gains from his 4th, 5th, and 6th days would be incremental. Necessary to be world-class? Probably, but Josh is doing very well with his program, so I think highly of it.

Podium being top 3/5. Basically the awards stand.

I was just under the impression that many Oly lifters train many more days a week, if not 2x a week. It could also be a time issue in that Josh also has a job and wife besides just lifting Oly.

Re: Josh Everetts training for the games?

I assumed Oly Lifters trained just about 3 times a week. I've heard over and over again about how much talent was wasted in the 90's where some of the guys were doing 8 workouts a week, etc.

I got that. I meant podium for the CF Games or for weightlifting?
