CrossFit Fort Vancouver: Programming for the Games
How to Prep Your Team
Join CrossFit Fort Vancouver as they discuss the programming that prepared them for their first-place finish in the 2010 CrossFit Games Affiliate Cup.
According to affiliate owner Adam Neiffer, the champions based their workouts on their weaknesses, especially overall strength and Olympic lifting. Programming was a team effort, allowing each member to have a vote and to program for the group. Although they rarely performed team workouts, the team members still completed individual WODs together and tested and retested their abilities in different movements to measure improvement. Judging by their success, it looks like their non-traditional training paid off.
I think it mattered a whole lot less what we did. It just mattered that we were doing it together, Neiffer says.
