This question is mostly out of curiosity but are there any programs out there (I’m sure there are, I just don’t know of them) that combines all 4 of this and if so can I get a link/some suggestions on how one would approach this 4 way mediocrity fest.
First off, I didn’t include bodybuilding for a couple of reasons. Don’t plan on competing and I would say that since I’m training recreationally, that’d be some degree of ‘mirror muscle hypertrophy work’ in the work outs such as 3 giant sets of biceps or whatever.
Basically, I’m asking how do you train for Crossfit with additional emphasis on the powerlifting/strongman aspects of it cause as far as I know, Crossfit is very olympic lift dominant.
For example, I would like to be able to…
hit a Class 1/Masters powerlifting total
hitting a level 3 classification on the catalyst athletics weightlifting profiling (which is roughly 1.5x bw c&j and 1.2x bw snatch)
retain my ability to do strongman and hopefully improve at it (I’d think it’s inevitable my numbers will go up at least a little if both my powerlifting/weightlifting numbers increase)
run a 5km in under 25 minutes
improve on bodyweight stuff such as push ups/pull ups/standing broad jumps/etc
In short, I kinda wanna do everything.
My thoughts on how I’ll go about this is somewhere along the lines of…
Drop low bar squatting since it has very little carry over to weightlifting and I suspect it might do me better for strongman plus I just like it more
do strongman events as a form of conditioning, rotating it with a running plan
perharps I’ll add in the bodyweight stuff under strongman conditioning
yeah… that’s about it for now and if it doesn’t put me in a shitty enough situation with my retarded wants, I would say that the equipment for weightlifting/strongman won’t always be available for me so that surely does seem like the cherry of top of this poop cake.
