So right before the FTF Affiliate Challenge (2014) I decided to do one of the posted WOD’s for practice. I decided to use a newer bar and absolutely knew I’d get a hand tear during the power snatches if I didn’t wrap. So being proactive I wrapped one of my trouble areas and proceeded with the WOD. It was around ¾ of the way through that I realized my wrap job just plain sucked. The tape slipped and I ended up with a sweet little tear.

Another successful FTF Affiliate Challenge is in the bag and this year didn’t disappoint. The WOD’s this year were a unique change compared to previous years. Not a pull-up in sight the first day, and no shuttle runs, but plenty of deadlifts, shoulders to overheads, plus a couple crazy twists.

The workouts were a break from the norm and forced athletes to use their heads. On workout two, there was a 1K Meter row buy in before the real WOD began. After your row, you began an AMRAP of 5 deadlifts, three pistols each leg, then twenty double-unders. The time for the workout was set at 10 min, so it was short, but you had to have a game plan.

Here is the thing guys; Strength training alone does nothing for your body except make you strong, and that is marginal at best. For most of you, and I mean the majority, you have to narrow that down even further. Strength training alone makes you strong in the areas you “Like” to hit during a normal workout. Most of you do the same few exercises in the gym, day in, and day out, or variations of that and call it good. You have no endurance to speak of, can’t tie your shoes without getting winded, wouldn’t be caught dead without a shirt on, have weak legs, and core strength, because you don’t deadlift, or squat, and the list goes on and on.
