Perhaps this is common knowledge, but not to me...

Is there some known sense to how the Coach programs the WoDs? I realize there's variety; I realize there's some basic ideas like mixing in the strength days and whatnot; but even given that, it's certainly not random. The discerning eye can notice patterns... short-term, like the heinous assault on legs lately, and long-term, like the way we haven't seen any wall-ball in a while. (Heck, look at any of the old workouts and they're very different from now. Or look at some of the exercises on the vids page that I've NEVER experienced.)

So what's the scoop? Or is it a Super Secret System known only to the Glassmans? :-)

Not that I can speak for Coach, but it's part method, part evolution. We total every few weeks to see how our bodies responded to the cycle of programs. The bad is culled; the good remains and is (ideally) improved upon.

CF, just like your body, is a work in progress.

Brandon,

I had the same questions as you a little while back.

Pick up a copy of the Feb 03 CFJ and look at the "Theoretical Template" article. It does a very good job of explaining the mechanics of the WOD's.

XD

Well, I've hated thrusters since day one, so you can't blame me for this one. Maybe I'll sub in some foosball... or like... calf raises...
