Strenght training

Hi all not sure if this post is in the right place. I've been following CFFB for a couple of months and started seeing good gains on squat, deadlift etc.
I've been increasing the weight week by week as the exercises are posted and was wondering, once i fail at the heavier weights do i continue with lower reps or drop the weight off slightly keeping to the program and build back up to try and increase the weight.

Any advice welcome, Thanks.

Re: Strenght training

If you get a chance, if you haven't subscribed to The Crossfit Journal, check out Crossfit Radio's Episode #31 or read the article Crossfit Strength Bias(link ) .

Let me know how it goes if you try it. I just got into Crossfit myself and debating on trying it myself. I've been listening to the podcast religiously starting from the first available podcast. Hopefully it helps
