    Crossfit Strength - Daily Workout

    I will use this section to post the daily workouts for Crossfit Strength, a gym here in Charlotte that utilizes Westside programming in conjunction with metabolic work (traditional Crossfit). This provides a greater balance of strength, size, and conditioning.

    In my opinion strength training and metabolic work can complement one-another.

    With Crossfit-Strength they use traditional "crossfit" workouts for the metabolic portion, and Westside programming for the strength portion. Both of which have proven to be quite effective with regard to their respective objectives.

    I think he's confusing the traditional CrossFit "programming" with the usual metcon WODs. There are strength programming days in CrossFit. I've been slowly gathering knowledge about this working at my gym that has a CrossFit affiliate built-in.
    My road to powerlifting:
    ===thecityalive is dead meat===
    Current RAW PRs:
    Bench: 255 (9/30/13)
    Dead: 515 (9/2/13)
    Squat: 435 (9/26/13)
    Total: 1205 lbs.
