5 weeks ago I embarked on a crazy adventure to get stronger. I spent months talking with some of the best coaches I could get anytime with. And out popped www.cocacompteam.com It’s a strength program in every sense of the word down to bicep curls and skull crushers.
It goes agains everything I’ve ever preached about CrossFit; specializing in not specializing – functional movements – ready for anything. And yet here I sit reviewing my programming seeing little to no CrossFit any where.
Why? A couple reasons. 1) I started hitting CF workouts again and the first couple of weeks went awesome but by the third week my calf was like a rock and my achilles was tight tight tight! 6 months hasn’t been long enough to hit workouts full go. 2) I’ve been out a long time due to my achilles surgery and I’ve lost quite a bit of strength. Knowing the games are getting heavier I need to get stronger.
I’ve never done a true strength program so I’ve had to put some ‘blind faith’ in what those around me have told me, and guess what – IT’S WORKING!
