Opens 2014 is over, which means for most that it’s time to get back to normal programming.
Here’s a great case study by Evan Peikon – “The Scientific Method of Programming”
With the level of competition in the sport of fitness growing each year the demands placed on both coaches and athletes are growing exponentially.
The days when we could follow “Crossfit Strength Biased” programs or run a “Black-Box” style program in which we combined a tried and true strength program, like Westside, with metcons are over.
So…. where does that leave us?
The answer isn’t black or white and will depend on a myriad of factors. But, in general it means that an Athlete should be following a well periodized strength & conditioning program that is tailored to their goals AND that factors in their individual makeup (I feel like i’m beating a dead horse by even having to mention this again….).
