Im curious, how long is this cycle going to be? What are the main focuses of this cycle? For example, is this a "strength cycle"? Sorry for all the questions.

looking forward to the new cycle!

congrats to jolie for another amazing performance at the games. she has shown tremendous consistency over the past 3 games with a win and finishing in the top ten twice. i don't think any other crossfitter can say that.

Hello Greg, I reckon a few months ago you said the optimum dosage of creatine would be 5g for 2 weeks and then 1 week of. Are you still convinced, that that is the correct dose? I'm just curious! :) Thanks, -Hixy

tim - i don't remember - i think 6 weeks. it's a strength-emphasis cycle.
Greg Everett 6 | 2009-07-13
hixy - seems to be a good starting point and baseline, at least. i also like simply synching it with training - i.e. no creatine on back-off/lighter weeks. so you may be doing more like 2-4 weeks on, 1 week off. i would try to do an off week at least every 6-8 weeks.
