Re: Rippetoe Interview

From the article, "MR: I was thinking more along the lines of weighted sit-ups and Roman chairs for heavy sets of five."

Does he mean weighted sit-ups for sets of five?

Re: Rippetoe Interview

I saw the link for this interview on the ISSA question board, a few of the Elite FTS guys are ISSA certified. I'm ISSA certified, but now that I found Crossfit, I can hardly stomach the drivel on that site. Good interview.
