great interview. couldn't have explained crossfit any better myself.

just a little testimonial here. pr'd a crossfit total today at 1010 with a back squat pr of 405 (20lb. increase). 180 press ties best in a cft and 425 deadlift is off by 10lbs. but only because i got greedy and went for 445 first instead of 435. should have been a 1020.

only reason to mention this is that i haven't trained those exact lifts (except back squat obviously) or done a crossfit total since about march. been doing pm workouts every other week since the crossfit games. just wanted to point out how well this stuff works. oly training if definitely the way to go. thanks again greg.

i'll probably start adding some heavy deadlifts in there somewhere.

Overhead sit-ups? I looked in the exercise demos and couldn't find it.
Also, the clean deadlift would be at a substantially lower weight than my DL for 3 reps. Should I do that weight instead?

WS -

Do a sit-up with dumbbells in vertical extended arms. RE deadlift, no - if you have that much disparity between a clean deadlift and your normal deadlift, you need to work the clean dead position and pull.
