This week Doug and Chris are back in the swing of things after he was in Alaska. We are running through the 10 General Physical Skills, what they are, and how they apply to our training and programming over the next few weeks. Today is the first two on the list followed up with some additional topics, more editing issues…. and some solid pet peeves.
This week all is well with technology and Doug and Chris are able to record the entire podcast! Imagine that! They give a review on the Games from their perspective, share their thoughts on the programming, the winners, and the general vibe of the entire competition.
After your long awaited podcast consistency and getting back in sync we run into technical issues today! The recording stopped! True to our Icon podcast ways we don’t edit it out and let it be what it is. What will you get? A brief intro into what we think of the Games so far, a cliff notes version of previously talked about content from Q and A’s, reviews, and of course our pet peeves which are extra salty this week.
Lots of changes this year with the Games season and it’s going to be interesting to see how it all plays out in the coming weeks. Doug and Chris talk through the concept of cuts this year, how it may impact some athletes, and what the perception of the sport might be.
A few conversations with inquiring members spark the topic for the day with the podcast! Wether we like it or not there is still a stereotype or perception that CrossFit causes injuries. Where does it come from, why, is it justified? It’a almost an entire episode of pet peeves!
Doug and Chris continue with the regular schedule despite getting some well deserved heckling from reviews. They finish up some reviews they missed previously which turn their day around from grumpy pants. Follow that up with talking through the difference in mentality with training during Chris’s days of competition till now.
It’s been a busy few weeks but Doug and Chris are back in the groove with the podcast. Catching up on reviews, diving into how they program for Icon, and some of the changes they have coming are a few things to look forward to. Pet peeves to start things off though and we love Canada!
Yes!! Doug and Chris are back this week after a quick break but it’s a quick one! Heads up the sound will be spotty too as it’s during a class at CFPC but we made it happen! Find out what go to workouts they do on the road, food they eat in a pinch, and their favorite outdoor activities during the summer months.
Doug and Chris get a thoughtful review from one of their listeners this week addressing some of the potential disagreements with CrossFit and those looking for sports specific training. Great and thoughtful conversation to follow on when may be appropriate to have specific work on weaknesses vs. GPP.
CrossFit Park City is in their 13th year of business. They have a number of long term members. Some have gone over the years and with some more insight it may be due to needing to find some balance in their training. There is some form of “give and take” when we realize what we want our training to serve us for. The things outside the gym have give and take as well. Are you a professional or recreational athlete. Defining these things can help create more well rounded fitness and health. Doug and Chris talk through their experiences this week.
Doug and Chris walk through the weekend at Rogue both on the legends side as well as the individuals. The mentality that some of the athletes display as well as how it may apply to us as individuals. Some legit pet peeves this week and who wants to see Doug play field hockey?!
Join in on the podcast this week while Doug and Chris talk through the Invitational and what’s whirling around in Chris’s head, what to expect and when to meet up if you’re going to be there. They answer some more reviews as well in regards to group fitness vs. one on ones along with helping some people out with equipment advice and coming back from injuries.
