This is probably the most conceited thing I’ll ever put on this site. I justify it to myself by saying that it’ll make it easy for people at Crossfit Inception to find local, wacky events that I come back with dumb stories from.

I’ve had some shitty luck at Regionals the past two years. Last year, I was proud to be the Team Captain of some of my best friends in the world as we went to West Palm Beach to compete in the Dirty South Regional on CrossFit Inception’s team. Our weekend was unfortunately cut short when none of our girls could snatch the 70lb dumbbell.

I could have gone a little heavier, but hey Regionals is in two weeks. Just another day at practice.
So I can’t believe that it took me so long to get to it, but I finally got to review Doug Larson’s Maximum Mobility this weekend.

Yesterday (actually 4 May), I did the Power Athlete Team Series Competition at CrossFit North Atlanta. Basically, it was a great competition and a lot of fun. It was also really nice not to have to travel or go out of my way or even wake up early to do a great competition.
My team, CrossFit North Atlanta CockDiesel was using it primarily as practice for Regionals coming up in two weeks.
I’d like to thank Burke for setting up the whole thing. Also to Travis for hosting it and Baker and the rest of the sponsors for making it happen.
Hey Yo Matt:
Can you explain the difference of lifting for volume and the metcons involving weight lifting. People seem confused when I try to explain it.
Basically the question that coaches get all the time is: “can’t I just get strong from doing metcons? Why do I have to do strength?”
The short answer is no, no you cannot just get strong from Metcons.
There are dozens of psychological and physiological adaptations that occur during strength training that will NOT and do NOT occur when your major limiter is your breathing....
