Default Catalyst Athletics WOD

Robb I just noticed that you have WODs on your page now, most (or all) involving heavy lifts + metcon on the same day. Thank you!! -now I don't have to crack my head cherrypicking WODs.

How do you decide what metcon work goes with the lifts? And do you plan for the three-day schedule in advance, like at one shot? Or do you go day by day?

Just FYI Catalyst Athletics is Greg's company and he is the one posting the WOD's. No taking anything away from all things Robb though

How Greg comes up with the metcon to go with the WOD's is a great question but they have seemed very complimentary with the movements that day, the day before and the day after. He definitely is looking at it from 10,000 feet.

But seriously. In short, I plan 16 wk cycles knowing specifically what I want to accomplish in total, in each 4 weeks and in each week within each 4-wk cycle. I write the workouts for each week at a time so can make sure the CF training and strength/oly training are complementary when possible or minimally disruptive when not. Next week is the last week of the first 4-wk cycle of the 16wk cycle, so there will be a fairly dramatic shift for the next mesocycle.

Greg, thanks for explaining that. Is there any place we can see what the 16-week goal is, and which 4-week cycle in that 16-week goal we are in, and what the purpose of the 4-week cycle is?

I don't mean to make any comparisons: I like knowing what we're training for, and find descriptions like those on Gym Jones' schedule helpful (see http://www.gymjones.com/schedule.php)
