Controlled Fatigue Training

Recently, I've been seeing more about Controlled Fatigue Training. I noticed that Jeff Martone, the Crossfit Kettlebell Guru is level II certified (I think through Ori Hofflemaker), and Mike Mahler's mentioned it. I've read about some people getting very good results with it. It also seems to fit with what happened during the Crossfit Games deadlift competition. In some ways it is almost like flipping around the order and doing CFSB (metcon and then strength).

(accidentally posted in the middle of typing the last message). I would be very interested in people's experiences and opinions about it, and learning how I can learn more about it.

Re: Controlled Fatigue Training

http://www.warriordiet.com/ I believe that what I observed at the time of posting is w/f/s

I messed up the name in my above post. It is Ori Hoffmekler. Scroll down and look on the right hand side of the page for the CFT link.

Re: Controlled Fatigue Training

The site is full of marketing fluff and questionable before/after pics. Reads like something in a Muscle & Fitness, aimed at the "get ripped quick" crowd. For this, I shall walk away. Quickly.


There are no secrets. Work hard, get strong.

Looks no different than the Zone diet site to be honest.

Well, then you can probably imagine what I think of the Zone diet, too.

Re: Controlled Fatigue Training

Too much ad copy for my blood. I have heard good things about the programs though. Don't believe the before and afters...

Re: Controlled Fatigue Training

The Warrior Diet is good stuff...it's essentially just an IF diet that focuses on eating whole foods. I don't know about the controlled fatigue training, though. It looks like you do strength training, and then do sprints, plyometrics, or run drills for your sport. I guess the thought is to train athletes to be able to perform powerful movements while in a fatigued state. I read a few posts about sports teams using it and having good results with improving fourth quarter performance. Maybe it's good...I don't think you could do it and CF, though.
