• Welcome back to linear progression! We’re going to get stronger every week. Linear strength progression works a little differently in a program with gymnastics and metcon, so pay attention to what’s happening. I have borrowed heavily from Rippetoe, Everett, and Louie Simmons in designing this.
This is true. Primarily weightlifting going over to more gymnastics/bodyweight based stuff does tend to go back to linear gains mainly because the strength is "there" but it's not directly applicable to moving the body in space.. yet.

As my knee gets better hopefully I can add some more short metcons in a similar fashion as your programming (or Garrett's).
