A System For Developing Competitive CrossFitters, sale Part 1 by Jacob Tsypkin. This is an excellent essay and articulates many of my ideas on programming for CrossFit. Jacob provides an excellent way to organize movements and your year to focus your training. As you read the list, don’t overlook Tier 3. Just because many of these movements are considered lower skill than say, snatching the barbell or muscle ups, doesn’t mean they won’t develop your fitness. If you are thinking about competing you may find you have to move Tier 3 type movements into Tier 2 to master them (think doubleunders or Toes to Bar).
A Muscle Up, 4 years in the making. It took Outlaw Coach Sarah 4 years to get her first muscle up. But she got it. So can you. Keep trying!
