What does success look like?
The entire purpose of this program is to get you strong enough to RX the daily WOD’s. That’s the goal. Actually, it’s the only goal. The sole purpose of this program is to progress your barbell and gymnastics aptitude and ability to the point where you can RX most standard WOD’s that come in standard programming more quickly than if you were only doing WOD’s.
The RX Athlete program is designed to be used in conjunction with your current Cross-Training training. In the lesson plans, we’ll develop a custom program that you can follow to get stronger at the movements you’ll need to RX Cross-Training WOD’s. As you progress through each movement, we’ll adjust your program based on your level of development, stalling, and how many workouts you plan to do a week.
There is an all too frequent occurrence I see with people who are starting their CrossFit journey. After months (or even years) of training, these beginners struggle to make material progress to being able to RX WOD’s. They constantly need to scale their workouts in various ways so because
The RX Athlete Program addresses this problem by providing a structured program to supplement standard WOD programming. Success in this program is measured in progressing you to the point where you can do the following movements in your WOD’s.
- Kipping Pull-Ups
- Ring Dips
- Handstand Push-Ups
- Back Squats
- Front Squats
- Overhead Squats
- Push Press
- Push Jerk
- Power Snatch
The idea is that if you are proficient in these movements, you’ll be able to RX most WODs that come up. Sure, there may be some exogenous movements that come up and throw you for a loop, but by focusing on these core movements you’ll be able to RX most WODs that come up in standard programming.
DO BEFORE OR AFTER WOD
The training goal for the RX Athlete program is to quickly and efficiently progress you to the point where you can RX any WOD. You can do these strength training workouts before or after your WODs.
As you develop through the levels and complete lessons you’ll be able to easily track your progress with your own gymnastics progress bar that goes from 0 to 100%. This provides a simple yet effective way to keep motivation levels high.
DIGITAL COURSE FORMAT
You’ll have your own username and password to access your personal digital course where you can track your progress through the levels. In addition, there is no expiration date for the course so you can access it however long you like.
