So I hear a lot of people saying that CrossFit Football is solid programming both for strength and conditioning for the power athlete. I also know that the Conjugte Method is the best training to up strength in the world for 99% of people. I have also learned that assistance exercises to bring up lagging and/or important muscle groups are a must to achieve a certain level of strength.
Louis Simmons says in his book that there are three ways to increase strength- the maximal effort method, dynamic effort method, and repetition method. Why can the repetition method of this trio not be covered in a typical CrossFit (or CrossFit Football) WOD?
For example, why not take two ME days with some normal assistance work, then two DE days with a quick MetCon kind of workout afterward that just so happened to cover the bases for the day.(E.g. after speed sets of box squats, your workout consists of box jumps, sit-ups, and power cleans... or whatever). Or on the two ME days you do a MetCon as well and after that some tricep extensions or GHRs or whatever you need.
And if you're feeling good, take one more day to do a bit longer of a workout, like the CFFB programming does.
This way you do your maximal effort work to get really strong, you do your dynamic effort work to keep your speed, and you get your conditioning and some repetition (volume) in the timed workout. Eat a lot, and you'll put on some muscle mass while you're at it.
Am I missing anything here?
