Long story short: I have been working out in a conventional gym. Took me a few years to hit a decent level of strength. First did Starting Strength, then did 5/3/1.
So I signed up for a trial month with a local CrossFit box. The workouts are hard and challending and I am enjoying gaining cardio fitness.
The only problem is, true "strength" training is far and few. 1-2 days per week they do isolated sets but there is no real rhyme or rhythm to it (dips one day, dead lifts on another than they won't do deads for a few weeks etc..).
I noticed my deadlift and squat numbers are like right up there with the elite of the gym, which is actually rather pathetic considering I weigh 150 lbs soaking wet and squat 225. I can't see how I will maintain my Bench, press, squat, and dead numbers with such sporatic strength training.
How does one combine strength training with CrossFit?
