It is important to have a firm understanding of not only how to implement a training plan, but also how to track and change it over time.

Effective training plans are founded on layers of intricate planning, preparation, and implementation. It is not enough to simply throw a template program at a group of athletes and walk away in hopes that after eight weeks, they will somehow magically improve. Coaches must take the time to assess what is happening along the way as well as to make the necessary changes as they see fit.

For many years, the CrossFit community has overlooked the worst excesses of the organization. Why is it any different now?

Let's call bullsh*t on the newfound belief in social justice sweeping through CrossFit affiliates. CrossFit's high school musical of dysfunction stopped being interesting years ago.

Consume more protein, especially if you’re trying to increase lean mass and strength gains.

CrossFit is too big to change overnight, and there are too many people for which there is no alternative.

I believe that a few other people have had their say, and expressed their opinions about CrossFit's recent issues on these pages. As someone who enjoyed CrossFit when I first founded Breaking Muscle, and as someone who believes that you should be open to all training modalities, remaining curious about all disciplines and not trying to find supremacy in any one, I think I need to give my perspective.

LEG WORKOUTS⠀ .⠀ Follow:@simplyinstafit ⠀ Follow:@simplyinstafit ⠀ .⠀ This is an example of a leg strength workout that would be performed in a gym and a home variation that you could do in its place with body weight and resistance bands. Any of the exercises listed with resistance bands can also be done with dumbbells if you have those instead. This workout would fit in as one of your leg days on a 6 day push/pull/legs split.⠀ -⠀ If you don’t have access to weights at home, it’s difficult to effectively replicate lower rep ranges, especially with legs. Legs are such a large and strong muscle group and they require significantly more weight than other muscles. You can load up a bar to squat in the 3-5 rep range at a gym but it’s nearly impossible to do the same at home on any leg exercise. If the listed rep ranges are too easy with the amount of resistance you have available, I suggest increasing your reps to a point where you’re 1-2 reps short of failure, whatever that number ends up being.⠀ .⠀ Credit:@apfau ⠀ .⠀ Tags ⠀ #legday #legdayworkout #workoutroutine #workoutplan #gymroutine #workoutprogram #exerciseroutine #buildmuscle #hypertrophy #weightlifting #liftweights #lifting #strengthtraining #homeworkout #workoutathome #simplyfit
