In the first episode of the show, I’m in the car with Wes Piatt, a CrossFit Games competitor, programmer and affiliate owner (of Coast Range CrossFit in Gilroy, Ca). Wes and I cruise around Santa Cruz — looking for waves — as we answer a few questions from the community.
Question #1 (2:45):
“In the Open workouts, when should an athlete opt for the scale?”
Question #2 (6:03):
“How do you manage clients who want more cardio? I need to keep my Barbell Betty's happy while also managing the Cardio Queens who don't want to get bulky.”
Question #3 (13:30):
“How do I explain to the "average" Crossfitter that's been doing this for 6-12 months that GPP is really the best, most complete solution for the masses? Members keep asking for more 30-min grinders; how do I get them to perform shorter workouts with higher intensity so that they feel like the workout is hard enough?”
At 28:06 Wes shares how he and his team graph athletes’ intensity and power output (and track it over time). He has a really great system for doing this that is very simple to implement, so definitely give it a listen.
A little heads up — The video is a bit shaky in the beginning because of the bumpy roads, but we eventually moved the camera so motion sickness wouldn’t be the only thing you got out of the show. We’re still figuring this stuff out, so thank you in advance for your patience.
And thanks so much for watching! If you have a question for us, jump over to this page: https://warmupandworkout.co...
