Re: Globo gym competition prep training

Also doesn't the fact that my proficiency at the more technical lifts is better than the slow lifts make me a better crossfitter? I mean my technique is pretty good considering I'm completely self taught om everything. I mean everything. The strength will come. As will my bodyweight snatch

Most definitely definitions will differ. With my lifts I still don't consider myself advanced. I will rephrase: At your bodyweight those numbers can easily still be increased by training at a conventional gym (i.e globo) with linear progression, which if i'm not mistaken is your game plan/goal.

The strength will only come if you train for it properly, I don't think it makes you a better or worse crossfitter. I do think higher big 4 would have a great carry over to the rest of your performance. Upping your squat by 50lbs would more than likely up your FS and your clean, AND also have carryover to thrusters and etc...
