Re: OPT VS. OUTlaw programs

You'd probably be best off looking on the actual OPT and Outlaw sites for programming/ideology. The programmers themselves can probably explain it best. I know Rudy at Outlaw provides some pretty extensive explanatory articles, and I think that there's at least some account of OPT's programming ideas on their site.

Perhaps some folks here would be able to provide testimonials and speak more to the programs' efficacy.

I know one major difference is that OPT has three different "levels," much like the Amateur/Collegiate/Professional on CFFB, to accommodate athletes' different needs at different stages in their training. I think Outlaw is just one "level" of programming, but it's also fairly self-regulated in that it's largely percentage-based, etc.

I think they're both probably great programs (haven't done either myself, though I might hop on board one of them in the future). Outlaw has been getting a bit of hype lately, and it seems like the people on the program are seeing great gains. I also really like Rudy's methodology. He explains the reasoning for his programming well.

Outlaw has 2 levels:
The main gym (WFS)
http://outlawcrossfit.com/
Those striving for the Games (often not WFS)
http://outlawcoach.wordpress.com/

A brief and slightly incomplete summary of Rudy's methods (mostly WFS)-
