Thanks Mike, I'm moving to a new country, and will be certainly looking for a good box to work with. However I wish I had a plan B until I find them.

Burn fat while gaining strength possible?

I was wondering how doable this is. Would like to get rid of my lifelong love handles while maintaining my oly lifting and strength (not necessarily muscle) gradually increasing (though more slowly...

Power Rack Mounting Question

Hello,
Does the Rogue R3 Power Rack need to be bolted to the floor?
If not, what are some economic rack options (for personal use) if I can't drill either floor or walls?
Thanks in advance!

Re: Clean Form Check

Thanks for the feedback, I can see now the early arm bend and how I'm driving through my toes instead of my heels.

Christopher, that's about as upright as I can front squat, I know it's causing me...

Re: thoughts on my strength program

Thanks Klæmint, that was good information. GSLP seems to be working fine, but maybe, once I'm done with this cycle, I'll tweak it around to add more volume in the lines you mentioned and see how it...

Re: thoughts on my strength program

Thanks for the feedback. I'm enjoying GSLP. It has been 6 going on 7 weeks since I started and I think I made some decent gains - I added about 20-30 lbs to my basic lifts (45 lbs to my deadlift),...

Re: thoughts on my strength program

Eric and Dana, once again, I'd really appreciate your insight.

Sometimes, my GSLP days will overlap with a strength biased WOD at the Box. Would you advise me to skip the WOD and focus on my main...

Re: thoughts on my strength program

That sounds good, thanks!
To reiterate, you think I should crossfit on the same day as the lifting and make the rest days 'full rest days'. Is that correct?

Re: thoughts on my strength program

You're right Eric. I made this routine based on the suggestions of a powerlifter at my local box who said Wendler's program would be best once I made a few more gains.

If it's perfectly alright...

Hi,

I would like to know from more experienced CFers if this is a good strength routine to follow in between regular CF days - 3 days a week.

I'm not very strong, so I'm working on a Upper...

Re: Strength Program or CF or Both?

On that note, what are your opinions on following Wendler's 5/3/1 3 days week, plus 2-3 Crossfit days? Due to my personal time constrains and my Box's MO, my Crossfit days would be randomly focused -...

Re: Crossfit vs. Regular Weight Training

I wonder, wouldn't a strength bias crossfit program, comprised of low rep high vol powerlifts and olys, be just as efficient in gaining strength and mass? Could it even be more efficient?
