First and foremost thanks guys for all you're doing, I love your site, the routine you dish out and all the infos on the magazine, I have a question I like to follow your training regiment and also the metcon wods from the main crossfit site, is it too much to sub those wods with the one you post, for example yesterday I did the F-50 instead, am I overdoing it? Thanks.
Good job Sage!!!!

Dan - Yes

Luca - If you don't die first, you'll see greatly reduced gains in your lifts... if any at all. But try it out.

The article:
Crossfit Athlete? Crossfit Games?

I hope that there is not just a selected number of predetermined "events" like a decathalon. This would appear to me to reduce the crossfitedness of the whole idea.

Taking say, 150-200 different "events/exercises" and putting them in a big ball as the "coach" talks about and spinning is would be the best bet to find the fittest dude.
This would mean James F. may not be the winner again this year as the games could center more on endurance events or maybe lots of heavy events. Might be a truely skinny guy to win it all or maybe a really big guy.

Sage --awesome!!
Greg and Aimee I enjoyed both your articles immensely!! And I forwarded them to my coach who was so impressed with the quality and content too! As he always says you need to EARN your weights and then FOCUS will make the lifts! Form always comes first!
