  1. Great article, seems like you have a real gem on your hands with Rachel coach. Best of luck to her and the whole CFNE team in the upcoming season. James Hobart still = one of my favorite athletes ever.

  5. For all the people following this program that are in the US, can I ask that you please post any good tips and strategy you might feel helpful for the first open WOD after its announced. Us folks over in the Asia time zones will be asleep when everything is getting released and would be great to wake up to people sharing thoughts and strategy on the first open wod when we wake up. Thank much

  6. Last year, Ben and CFNE released videos shortly after each announcement to lay out strategy for each open wod. I am certain there will be discussion on here, but I'd search on YouTube for strategy vids. Barbell Shrugged, Outlaw, and others also put out videos so there will be many choices.

  7. Yeah Mark I'm familiar with that, but also great to get the actual people who are following this program to discuss as well. Good to hear it from the actual athletes too

  9. So here's a link to a Built By Bergeron leaderboard I made. I put in all the names I could find, and multiples of the common names since there's no way to tell who's who (Michael Johnson, Jonathan Martinez).

    If your name is not on here and want to be added, post your full name today and I'll add you or you can copy/edit a new list and share with the group.

  18. Ok. AMRAP10: 30 DUs 15 snatches 75/55

    What do you all think? Muscle snatch the whole time or switch to power? Unbroken as long as possible, or break it up? Discuss...

    ReplyDelete
  19. Treat it like an emom. But extend to 1:10 or 1:20..see what happens

    ReplyDelete
  20. After watching the standards video, I saw you're allowed to c & J or snatch. This may be helpful if your shoulders totally go out and you can't hang on anymore in the later rounds.

    I'm going to "try" to keep from muscling it up and focus on dropping my ass between reps to save my shoulders and back.

    ReplyDelete
  21. You can also clean and jerk so maybe switch to clean and jerk at around the 7 minute mark if the snatches are starting to go too slow.
