We came across this cool overview on METCON5.
Read the entire overview here: http://traininglog5.com/uncategorized/the-best-crossfit-competition-programming/
- Crossfit Invictus Competition Training Programmed by CJ Martin who has worked with several top athletes including Josh Bridges and Camille Leblanc Bazinet.
- Outlaw Programmed by Rudy Nielsen. About a billion athletes following Outlaw qualified for regionals last year and Rudy programs a boatload of Olympic Lifts.
- Crossfit New England’s Competitor WOD Ben Bergeron is well known in the Crossfit community for having one of the most successful affiliates, sending a strong team to the games every year and coaching a whole pile of top dogs.
- MisFit Training Not as well known as the guys above, but worth a look. The programming looks to be well thought out. The cool thing about these guys is that they have built in scaling options for the volume of work (i.e. each day has mandatory components as well as optional pieces for those with the time)
- MaxFit USA Has several distinct streams for Crossfit competition, powerlifting, and olympic lifting.
- OPT Big Dawgs Blog Arguably, James “OPT” FitzGerald is the OG of games competition and the original Crossfit Games champ.
Whatever you choose, don’t make the mistake of bouncing from program to program when you don’t PR by 50 pounds in your first week. Choose a path and give it time. That being said, it is still important to measure and track your progress in a detailed crossfit training journal. Blindly following a path without success is just as counter-productive.
