Alex,
Check out The Outlaw Way, Crossfit Football, and OPT. And, you know, Cathletics. Naturally. They are all run by people much smarter than I am.

Personally, I follow Cathletics now, but I also write programming; my trainees have seen some pretty solid results. You can find us at http://www.facebook.com/centralflori...thandmasochism. I post the workouts daily.

Tom, that article was on point. I think you and I are of a very similar mind in regards to conditioning. The only time I really break from the rules is for my "Saturday Supercon"...a tradition that started as a joke but has carried on because my trainees effing love it. Sunday's a rest day, so I don't feel too bad about beating them up a little on Saturdays.

I like your idea of cutting back the conditioning work to two days a week and adding in supplemental lifts. That might just form the basis for my next strength cycle.
