Default Khalipa vs Spealer

Anyone else see that video in the CFJ?

For those who haven't the take home message:

Periodized (non random) strength work increases preformance.



Who'd a thunk it?

Mainsite WOD's are not random. There is a long-term planning to the WOD's. The fact that no one seems to be able to "crack the code", or that no one involved in the planning and posting of the Main Page WOD's has seen fit to share the proprietary template with us is not de facto proof that they are random. I converse with these folks on a weekly basis; they find the ongoing "controversy" about the so-called randomness of the Main page to be laughable.
Robert, you are right, but you have to hide your periodization in a way that only elite mathematicians can crack the code. If you stare at it enough, you too might be able to read the matrix.

If you can't discern the signal through the noise, there's no signal.

Google Web definitions for random:
(I like this one)
Quote:
Having no specific pattern, arrangement or predictable outcome.
Obviously as opposed to, say, periodization having a predictable outcome.

Well that is what I thought as well, but learned otherwise in the video.

When asked about his training Spealer says, "...so, lots of crossfit, and then throw in some strength work with it, which is still crossfit."

So apparently periodized strength work is still crossfit. Which then begs the question, what is not crossfit?

picking on crossfit is like picking a scab. once you start you cant stop. sometimes you are picking it and do not even realize it.
