Anyone tried Crossfit Weightlifting?

I've heard Froning and Hobart mentioned Crossfit Weightlifting and how great the programming is on a day to day basis. Coach Mike writes the workouts so I'd expect them to be better than your average programming. My question is; has anyone done a 12 week cycle with them? If so, how'd you like it? If not, why didn't you like it?

Any thoughts are appreciate it!

Crossfitweightlifting.com is the website (safe for work)

I looked at it but no, I don't do it. It's a continuation of the old Mike's Gym website.

Coach Burg does the WL programming and his son programs the CF. It's more of one or the other.

Re: Anyone tried Crossfit Weightlifting?

Tough question because Crossfitweightlifting.com posts 2 tracks. A "weightlifter wod" track and a "crossfitter wod" track...

They're both excellent, and depends on your goals which track to follow.

BTW- my legs don't want to work after this week of "weightlifter track"... Love it.

I'm glad to hear you like it! Sorry, I should have clarified. If I do the program I will be going the CF route over the weightlifting route.
