  1. I have been following this site for a few months and have seen progress, so thank you! I have been crossfiting for several years now but I wanted to know what warm ups do you suggesst, as your programming is one of a kind? m/

    • Rudy changed his first name to Axl this month, obviously you don’t follow Crossfit news

  2. So I just started outlaw and I really enjoy it. For yesterday’s wod however I skipped the 400s because I felt pretty beat up after the pistol wod and felt doing the 400s would be overkill to my body. Anyways my question is was the 2nd conditioning part meant to be done right after the 1st one if we had no time later in the day? I just dont want to lose out on running sprints because I could use workonthem but i

    • dont want to overkill my body everyday before snatching and clean and jerking the next day. Maybe some weeks I could do the 400s instead of the first conditioning? Thanks guys and sorry this part got cut off from the original post.

      • From the post for yesterday’s programming:

        “*Notes: Part 2 should be done separately if time allows.”

        Seperate if possible to maintain intensity.

        • So if its not possible to do it seperately then do them back to back? or dont do it at all? Sorry, not trying to sound like retard. I didn’t do it yesterday because I felt too beat up after the first wod and had no time later.

          • A couple tips on starting TOW or any other competitive training template/program:
            1. Lower your initial expectations of your Oly lifts while you acclimate yourself to the volume. The goal is to get better long term, not get your lifetime PR tomorrow! Execute your lifts perfectly. It isn’t very useful to either fail or barely achieve the lift with godawful form repeatedly because you’re attempting to PR after an exhausting week. Save the big efforts for when you’ve gotten used to it.
            2. Try lowering the volume to start (say 80%), then incrementally increase to full volume (figure that out on your own). If you aren’t used to competitive exerciser volume it may be too much to just jump right into. Or, you can just do what you can and not sweat it if you don’t have anything left. Rudy won’t send the shylock after you if he finds out you skipped the 400s and I’m pretty sure no kittens will be killed in divine retribution.

            I had my volume up already when I was doing it so I jumped right in. Had illness. Starting over. The above is what I would do now to get back into TOW readiness.

  3. Watched BP nail the Ohs today made it look easy with a smile on his face @295, Solid work.

  4. Rudy,
    In your downtime, can you please program me a weeks worth of work where I can not use my left shoulder. After four cortisone shots today and regionals in a few weeks I need to keep doing something. I will be checking my email waiting for your response. Boomsauce will understand.

    Thank you
