that is an awful picture.

My wife was laughing at me last night because she says I "frown" when I lift. It looks like I am not the only one. :(

Am I missing something or is Thursday usually a rest day?

I have a feeling that Saturday might be a max day for everything. That why he is making this a workout day and friday a rest day.

Greg, what width did you go with on the platform (middle section)? looks less that 4'.

I'm going to start frowning.

Hey Greg
I'm an avid crossfitter and affiliate owner(Crossfit Phoenix)who wants to improve on my oly skills. I'll be attending an Oly cert in Tucson in Feb. My question; I would love to start doing the wods on your site. Are they geared for Oly lifters or Oly/crossfitters, and since I'm new to oly lifting should I do the wods as rx'd or different. Any suggestions would be helpful.
Awesome site

Scott - The WOD here is geared for someone who is primarily focused on weightlifting but wants to maintain a decent base of conditioning. If you want to a pure weightlifting WOD, you can do Burgeners at mikesgym.org - all lifting, no metCon silliness.

Chris - 3' 6" - Means you have to use more rubber, but it's so much better. With a full 4' width top sheet, the inside of the bumpers are right along the edge of the wood - you get a lot of bars dropping on the edges and chipping them away. This way is a bit more work and money, but well worth it in my opinion.

who needs metcon anyway, its good for nothin...
