That’s right, we’re going heavy again! I may be paranoid, but I feel the need to defend the days spent with heavy lifting.  I can see it in your eyes, you are not sure this is as good for you as a burning, ass-kicking CrossFit style workout you know and love.  If you haven’t figured it out yet, this IS a CrossFit workout and getting strong is a good thing!

  Remember, “There is simply no other exercise, and certainly no machine, that produces the level of central nervous system activity, improved balance and coordination, skeletal loading and bone density enhancement, muscular stimulation and growth, connective tissue stress and strength, psychological demand and toughness, and overall systemic conditioning than the correctly performed full squat.” -Rip

A lot to take in, but I really take note of that bone density remark.  When we talk about getting strong, we aren’t speaking exclusively of muscles, but bone and sinew…

the stuff that holds the body together.   Bones are just like the rest of our body, in that they respond to stress by getting stronger.  If you don’t believe me, just read some more Rip quotes
